I am Donna and my grandfather is James Arthur, George's brother. I went with a friend to Manchester TN to the library to do research on Rufus and his family there. I got the names and phone numbers of some of the Toms people listed in the phone book and called, but never heard back from any. I am going to try this again and see if I can get in touch with a Toms family member because the Toms descendants should have more info on Rufus than any of the other family members since he married Emily Toms first. I still want to know if he came from Ireland as my mother always told me. I have even checked the ship's lists for a name of Rufus or even Franklin (or Frank) Martin and found one F. Martin coming from Ireland from port of Belfast in Ireland on May 19, 1858. Don't think that is our Martin but not sure yet. It said he arrived in New York on the ship, T Bayne. I could not find a T Bayne ship when I Googled it. Still digging and will know if I find anything else.
