The 1860 Census of South Carolina lists W.W. Tuff age 34 born abt 1826 SC home in 1860 is Spartanburg.Also lists family: Margaret age 24 SC, Rufus age 4SC and Wade age 2 SC.
This should be W.W. Tapp, not Tuff.Rufus shown is Rufus T. Tapp b. 1865,Wade is Wade B. Tapp b. Sept 1856 also found variously as Waddie and Watt.Other known brother Goven M. Tapp born 30 May 1860 is not listed as he was not born in time for this census.But W.W. Tapp and Margaretare obviously the father of Rufus T., Waddie and Goven that many of us have long tried to identify.This Rufus is not the Rufus S. Tapp son of Jesse Lanford Tapp of Hoskin Co., KY that many have misidentified him as being.
But who is W.W. Tapp b. 1826 SC living in Spartanbueg in 1860 abd married to Margaret?Does anyone have a clue? Thanks, Phil Sulser (great grandson of Rufus T. Tapp and Mary Jane Bragg).firstname.lastname@example.org
