I am researching for a friend. Her family is from Greenville County, South Carolina. The ancestor that I am looking for more information on is Rufus (or Ruffus) Sullivan, married to Maggie Lee W??? (not sure of her maiden name).
Rufus was born 20 May 1913, died 12 Jan 2001. Maggie was born 4 Jan 1924, still living.
His father's name is Houston, born in South Carolina in about 1890, death unknown. He was perhaps married twice I believe: first to a Katie (Bunion maybe)(died about 1925), and perhaps second to Marie Downes.
There was as least one other child born to Houston and Katie: Henry Sullivan born about 1924.
I have come up with a couple other individuals listed in their households on various census': Lillie M Ross, born about 1912; Cathrine Keller, born about 1923.
They have a strong military tradition.
Any information, no matter how small or trivial is appreciated. I am out of ideas on how to proceed with my research.
