Johannes Rehfus, founder of the Rafuse families in Novcotia, settled in Lunnenberg area. tThe info I have may connect Emma to the third son of Johannes, John Jacob Rafuse,, baptised June 1 1758, married Catgherine Barbara?. One of their chldren, John Frederick married Ann Barbara Deal. Then one of their 8 chldren, John born 824 had a daughter, Emma born 1854. Does her birth date sound right. In Nova Scotia this summer I came across a book - The Family Rafuse A record and Genealogy of Nova Scotia Rafuse Families. Unfortunately, no effort was done to research the females. Johannes Rehfus is my 4xg grandfather. Hope this info helps
