Carlene, You have cleared up two questions that I had about this family. First, Rufus F. Shue that I have the pension application on is the same one who was here in Pope County, Arkansas.His first wife was Eliza J. Taylor who he married 20 Feb 1865 Bk D-101 in Pope Co. AR.They had two children. Nancy E. born about 1866 and William M. born 1868 probably in Pope Co. AR. Then from her pension application when Rufus "died (17 Sep 1890 of Pernicious Malarial fever at Detroit, Tennessee, he married 2nd to Judy Theresa Welch on 25 Oct 1869 by Wm. King, JP at Marion Ark." This pension lists these children who were under age 16 at time of pension application (18 Jun 1892): Richard L. B. Shue born 23 Feb 1877; Chas. E. J. Shue 31 Jul 1880; Harry Lee Shue 01 Mar 1883 and Van Houton Shue 04 Mar 1888.
The second clarification was who Susan Shue listed in 1860 census was married to. I had wondered if she was married to John A. Shue but after 1850 census, but the ages of her children didn't fit. I don't find a William Riley Shue in the census here. I don't have any information about Susan and Wm. Riley other than census and marriages from Pope Co. I do have pension for their son, John William Shue who married Mary Phillips. He is buried in Fairbanks Cemetery in Quitman, Cleburne Co. AR.
