Nunez, Rudolphus W., was born in Emanuel county, southern Georgia, in 1857, s6n of Philip and Elizabeth (Waits) Nunez. His father was a farmer and school teacher, which occupations he followed until the outbreak of the civil war, when he, in common with the people of the South, espoused the cause of the confederacy, and proved his sincerity and belies in the justice of the lost cause by offering up his life in its defense, being killed in one of the great battles fought in the Wilderness in the spring of 1864. After the close of the war Mr. Nunez's mother remarried, and the family removed to the North. and the subject of this sketch was apprenticed to D. A. Ballard & Sons, paper manufacturers of Schuylerville, Saratoga county. After filling several engagements in various parts of the county he came to Felt's Mills in 1890, and entered the employment of the Taggart Paper Company as night foreman, which position he held for two years, when he was made superintendent of the company's extensive plant. In 1883 Mr. Nunez married Ida McDade, of Richmond Ga., and they have five children: Inez, Ida, Philip W., Vosco and Don Carlos. These children were born in five different states, and first saw the light on the banks of four different rivers. Like her husband, Mrs. Nunez's family felt the horrors of the late war. Her father was also a confederate soldier, and, actuated by the same spirit, fell in the line of duty during those memorable years which witnessed the greatest civil war of ancient and modern times.
