Rufus B. Mitchell - WW II Veteran
I have been researching my family for 3 years now. My uncle Rufus left home when he was 15 yrs old. I think that was probaly in the 1950's and was never heard or seen again. He had six sisters and 1 brother, all are deceased except for 1 sister. He was born in Crockett Texas, Houston County. I don't know his birthday. I was in Crockett TX at the courthouse during some research Friday (2/25/05), and I happened to look on this wall that had a list of Houston County Honorable World War II veterans, and there was his name: RUFUS B. MITCHELL. I almost died. My family, especialy his only surviving sister has always wondered where he was all of these years.
