Records of Rufus Mink.
Rufus is first found in the 1850 in Ashe County, North Carolina
listed as age 39.
In the 1860 census he is listed as age 49 and living in Sumpter,
Tennessee and his occupation is "Miller".
He is again found in the 1870 census in Claiborne County, Tennessee with
wife "Cassie" sons Calvin M, John and daughter Emaline Mink Stone. His
occupation is listed as a farmer.
I have no records after 1870 of Rufus or Cassandra.
