ALMOST, DAMAN, DAMON, DEMING, DEMMING, RUFUS posted by Margie Hinton on Saturday, January 5, 2002

Don't know whether anyone is interested, but I am ALMOST complete with my history of RUFUS DEMING/DEMMING/DAMON/DAMAN, at least as far as I can go right now, and his migration across the country starting with his birth in 1792, moving to Belmont and Athens Counties, Ohio, his two marriages there and his 4 children; then the move to Quincy, Ilinois, and his two more marriages; then his move to Lake County, California following his daughter Est(h)er and her husband John Cobb; his move to Napa County and another marriage and then his death in 1880 in San Luis Obispo, California. Busy man! I have 25 plus pages of information on him. Quincy, Illinois wants to publish this in their Genealogical Journal. I could send it to Ohio too if anyone is interested.
