I also have conflicting info on Rufus F. Shue from a pension record for his service in the Civil War. Do you think he left his wife and children rather than having died? If so, he had another wife and set of children. This has confused me for some time. The wife listed in pension was Judy Theresa Welch and they married in Marion, Arkansas 25 Oct 1869 and moved to Lauderdale Co. TN, to Woodruff Co. AR, back to TN. Are these two Rufus F Shues the same person or two different men? I live in Pope Co. AR. Have more info on John Shue's family from here. Lina Boyd, Dover, Arkansas.
