I am new to this list.

Is anyone on list researching the Rutledge families who migrated
first from VA to MO to San Joaquin County, CA?

There seems to be several Rutledge families in and around San Joaquin
1850 onward.  Many involved in copper mining and/or were
merchants.  May all have been from the same family in VA.

Mine is John R. Rutldge b. abt 1804 VA.  Married Nancy Ann Fulton,
Mar. 1829, Rockbridge Co, VA.  Was in Wayne Co, MO from abt 1840 to
early 1850's.  Then on to San Joaquin County, CA where he became a merchant.

Children of John R. and Nancy Rutledge were:
Mary Elizabeth 1831 (married Jabez Newton)
Edward 1834 (married Cordelia and Mary)
Virginia A. abt 1837
Augustus C. abt 1840 (married Almira)
Caroline abt 1843 (m. John Thompson)
John F. abt 1845.

Looking for anyone with knowledge of this family or the families of
Joseph H. or Edward G. Rutledge who were also in or around San
Joaquin at about the same time.

Thank you,

Linda

I'm John Rutledge in Eugene, OR...   Saw your note to Tina (who also lives
in Eugene...) and thought I'd jump in...  Carole and I have been trying to
get another Rutledge get-together going in Eugene... we used to have them on
quite a regular basis...  I promised Tina, Donna (who lives near you in
Brownsville) and Cheryl, (who lives in Oakridge) that I would organize a
meeting soon... but our son and wife had triplets born in December, and
things got hectic... anyway.. I PROMISE, I'll get at it again...

 I'm really interested to hear from you... by any chance, do you know Lt
Dale Rutledge of the Oregon State Police..?  I retired from the Eugene
Police Dept in 1991.... often heard of him, abut never got to meet him in
person.. I'd like to see if he knows about any of the Oregon Rutledge
lines..  I see Dale on TV from time to time and think he works out of the
Salem Headquarters...

 Also.. I've been working on a line of George Rutledge who migrated to
Humbolt Co CA from MI/OH... He then moved to Benton County.   I've been able
to track some of his children, found gravesites for seveal of them near
Albany.  He married a Sarah Ann Kay in Hillsdale Co MI in 1864.  George was
born in 1841 in Ohio.  They had children: Arthur R, James Edwin, Estella D.,
and Elnora, Lena R, George Melvin (who died in Roseburg) and Grace.

 Anyway.. if any of this rings a bell with you I love to hear...  All my
best... John.

Hi Jan....

Been doing some more on the Oregon Rutledge line of George and Sara...  I've
attached a report of info I've dug up so far.... Could you look thru it and
see if any names or places jump out at you...

What's of interest to me right now is finding a census entry for George
Rutledge in Humbolt Co, CA in 1880.  Note that George indicates his parents were
both born in PA.... so.. maybe we're onto the right line afterall...  I know
that's a thin connection, esp. since George later lists other places of birth for
his parents.. but... the is very early on.. maybe he hadn't gotten it all
mixed up yet..;)

Also, his obit gives a possible clue to their MI roots... it mentions a
sister in Richland, MI.,  so we need to follow up on that point.

Last.. I haven't gotten the info entered yet, but I've located several of the
Kay family line living very near to George and Sara in Humbolt Co, CA.   This
caught my eye since their son Arthur's death notice in the CA index states
his mother's maiden name was Kay.

There are two families.. living next door to each other...
William Kay, 28, wife Jane, two children.  Wm is born in MI, father Ohio,
mother Ohio.

Daniel F. Kay, 25  MI  OH  OH.   LIving with him is his mother, Mary A. Kay,
45, OH VA OH. ;  his brother, Frederick M., 9, CA OH OH.;  and his
grandmother, Esther Snider, 82, OH KY OH.

Its my guess this is the Daniel F. Kay who will later marry Estella Rutledge,
dau of George and Sara.

So.. this adds credence to Sara's maiden name mentioned in Arthur's death
index.

Anyway... it seems these names, places of birth, dates, etc. are setting a
pattern that may fit for your line coming out of PA.... Let me know what you
think...

Larry,

Sunny has been looking for a James Carter Rutledge who was around the
Bakersfield area.    He has been a Brickwall of sorts for her for some time
now.   I wonder if the James C. you mentioned could be him?   I show that
her James Carter Rutledge was b. .December 02, 1862.   Could he be a
relation?   She shows him married to a Mary Ann BOWLES,.   Could there be
another marriage?     It just caught my eye when you mentioned James C. &
Bakersfield in the same paragraph.

James Carter Rutledge also had a daughter named Mildred.   Actually it was
Lelah Mildred RUTLEDGE, but she probably went by Mildred.   More
coincidence?    The birth dates are off a bit, but I find that often in
comparing different peoples versions of family history.

There are too many dis-similarities for them to be one and the same, but
whoever is doing that research might ought to be aware of this family for
two reasons.   One....the similarity in names could cause him to cross the
members from one family to another, and scratch his head about the
differences in the birth dates and Two.....given the similarity in names,
his family could very likely be descendants of Sunny's Family or at least
related in some way.

Just thought that I would throw all this in to gum up the works real good.

 My father's mother's maiden name was Lockhart.  A cousin on that side
 of the family has found another Rutledge/Lockhart connection, and
 would like to know more about the Rutledge Family involved.

 James C And Nevada Rutledge had a daughter Mildred, born June 20,
 1910.  James C was a cattle rancher in Woody, CA which is About 60
 miles NE of Bakersfield CA.

 Mildred married a Fayne Lockhart, and had a son named Edgar.

 Has anyone heard of these Rutledges?

From notes on my fathers family chart. John and Bertha Rutledge moved from Salina, Kansas in 1891. The Rutledge Brothers Planing Mill was owned by three brothers, John Rutledge,Charles Rutledge, and William Rutledge. The business was not enough for three families, so John pulled out and moved to Red Bluff , California. William Andrew Richard Rutledge , born Nov 4,1858 in Markdale, Ontario, died Mar 16, 1926, in Sacramento, Calif. , marrried Francis C. Smith of Illinois, born 1855, died in Sacramento in 1932. Charles James Golden Rutledge, born Nov. 27,1860, died in 1932, in Witchita, Kansas. Married Elizabeth Ellis, born 1858, died in Witchita, August 1949.

Alice Melton, their aunt, daughter of Martha Letitia Rutledge, lived from 1880 to 1965. For 50 years she was secretary to succeeding Presidents of Witchita State Agricultural College. If you want more dope on this fairly obscure branch, just whistle.

We have known for some time that Rutledges and related families were in California. Now we are starting this page to accomodate those Most Wanted ancestors who were in California as far back as the Spanish era.

Rutledge b-1894 in Eureka Ca. d-1925 in Eureka CA. married Marjorie Nelson in Eureka CA. date on Marriage license is 8/4/21. Arthur & Marjorie had a Daughter born in Eureka CA. in approx. 1922 Helen was three years old at her fathers death. Arthur's widow Marjorie & Helen approx. a year to 18 MOs after Arts death moved back to Marjorie's home place Eau Claire, WI. Marjorie remarried I assume in Eau Claire Helen took the surname of her Stepfather we only want to authentically complete our family tree, and since Helen is blood, so to speak we would appreciate hearing from her progeny, Nelson, relatives, or decentness of the Nelson branch of this Nelson family Yes--Ron you have my permission to post my email address.

Like many of you I've reached a stopping point in tracing my ancestry. So far I've been able to go back to my Gr Gr Grandfather John Brown Rutledge. He was born in either Kentucky or Tennessee in 1839. Does anyone have any information on a John Brown Rutledge that sounds like it could be a match? He was married to Nancy Mauser, who at one time was also Nancy Chapman. They had one son Guy Rutledge, born in Hanford, CA in 1888. J.B Rutledge died in the 1890's, probably in Fresno or Hanford, CA. Thanks to all!! It's exciting to be part of this large internet Rutledge Family
