Deb, I have two Charles Walter Sluss, father and son. Their stats do not fit those that you gave. Are you sure of yours.

Joan,

My Charles W. Sluss was born in Scott Co., VA to Conley Bishop and Polly Ann Sluss, daughter of Rufus Sluss. He retained his mother's maiden name. Polly Ann Sluss later married Domic Delias in Jan-1896 and had 6 children with him. Polly Ann Sluss had 3 other children before she married Domic Delias. Her 2nd child was John Sullivan Sparks who was raised by his father, Morgan Sparks. Her 3rd and 4th child, Earl Bayes and Bessie Sloan were adopted by the Nickels family. I hope this makes sense to you. If you have any information pertaining to Rufus Sluss, please let me know. Deb

Deb, What year was your Rufus born? I have a couple of Rufus Sloas/Sluss - one born in Scott County and descendants moved to KY. He had a daughter, Margaret (Polly) but she would have been 56 in 1896 and obviously could not have given birth to six more children.

The other Rufus born in 1882 so, the dates there will not fit your time line. If I have a date it would be helpful. Joan

Joan,

I am not sure what year my Rufus was born. I only found 1 Rufus Sluss in Scott County that was of the right age and during the right time period to be Polly Anna Sluss father. I have no name for Polly Anna Sluss's mother so I am trying to connect Polly Sluss to Rufus Sluss in Scott County.

According to the information I have, the only Rufus Sluss able to be Polly Anna Sluss father, was married first to Margaret Burton in 1830 in Scott County. Rufus then married a second time to Sarah E. Brickey in 1857 in Scott County. He and Sarah were listed in the 1860 census in Estillville, Scott County on pg. 436. I can't find either him or Sarah in the 1870 census. My Polly Anna Sluss, shows up in the 1880 census with her uncle & aunt, Peter & Emeline Sluss in Floyd, Scott County. According to family stories, Polly Anna Sluss was an orphan her parents died when she was very little. I hope this helps. Deb

Rufus and Sarah are on the 1870 census; Floyd, Scott Co., but the name was transcribed as "Sleep" rather than Sluss if you are looking in Ancestry.
10 children are listed with them however, I can not find them in 1880 or find a death for them so far.
I am assuming that they both died sometime between 1870 and 1880 as the children are all scattered between relatives in 1880 census records.
I am searching for the spouse of Nancy Sluss. Does anyone have that information?

Any information pertaining to what happen to these 3 daughters of Rufus Sluss & Sarah Brickey after the 1870 census would be appreciated. Thanks.... Deb
