Try driving a mile or two with the axle nuts just loose. You really have to use a factory type puller that screws into the knock off threads (one RH and one LH) with a large screw in the center. Often the hub requires some heat to break the rust loose on the taper.

Thanks, Stan.

Unfortunately I already dissassembled the front brakes completely. Think the rear brakes only would work ok to drive her around the neighborhood?

Well, the rear drums are finally off the car. Thanks to all who corresponded here and by phone. Got a 10 ton gear puller from Posi-lock, put the axle nut back on loose with a large washer behind it, and with a 3 foot cheater on a 3/4 drive breaker bar on the puller, they popped. Sounded like a gunshot, but no real fanfare other than that. I highly recommend the Posi-lock, tho it wasn't cheap!
