Subject: Rutledge connections to Streetman? Virginia? Georgia?

 
I descend from Williamson Rutledge Streetman (1802 - abt. 1875 Marion Co. AL), supposedly the son of Martin Streetman and Ada (Rutledge?). This Streetman family was in Madison County, Georgia in the early 1820's, and seems to have come from the Loudon County, VA area, where an older Martin Streetman died about 1775 with wife Elizabeth (maiden name unknown). Elizabeth and son John Streetman were in Pittsylania County, Va by 1790, and we believe he is the same John Streetman later in the Wilkes County, GA area by 1800.
  
  I am hoping to find any reference to the Streetman family to the Rutledges. My gg grandfather John Rutledge Streetman was the son of Williamson Rutledge Streetman. John was born 1827 in Madison Co. GA and died after 1900 in Tishomingo County, Mississippi.

WM. M. RUTLEDGE was born in Roane County, Tenn. in 1848, and is one of a 
family of six children born to Geo. P. and Delia (Tedford) Rutledge. The father 
was born in Sullivan County, Tenn., June, 1813, and followed farming in that
and  Blount Counties until about 1861, when he moved to Spalding County, Ga.,
and  from there in 1865, to Huntland, Franklin Co.,Tenn., at which place he
embarked  in merchandising, and continued that until a short time before his
death, which  occurred in February, 1884. The mother, a native of Alabama,
preceded him May  11, 1878. Wm. M., the subject of this sketch, remained with his
parents until  their death, and in 1878 he began merchandising for himself, and
in partnership  with Geo. C. Rutledge carries a splendid line of general
merchandise at  Huntland, this county. In November, 1879 he married Martitia
Staples, daughter  of Jno. W. Staples, of this county. This marriage has been blessed
by the birth  of two children, both girls: Roxie and Nettie, both still
living. . Mr. and Mrs.  Rutledge are active members of the Cumberland Presbyterian
Church. Mr. Rutledge  has always been a Democrat, and is a strong advocate of
the principles of  prohibition


Hello, Jane,

This branch of Rutledges is not part of my line.  (At least there is no
proof we share a common ancestor within the past 600 years).

I don't know a lot about Rachel Williams who married William C.
Rutledge.  Her father reportedly was George.  George Williams married a
Rachel, last name unknown.  Rachel Williams Rutledge was born about
1806, in GA.  Rachel, wife of George, was born circa 1774, in NC.

In Dallas County, AL Estate Settlements, 1842:  Estate of George
Williams mentions as heirs, William Rutledge, and Rachel, his wife.

Rachel Williams, age 76 NC, was enumerated in Wm. Rutledge's HH, 1850
Dallas County, AL.  That same census record has Rachel Rutledge's (Wm's
wife) birthplace as Germany.  So, that's a contradiction.  I'm more
inclined to believe it was GA. 

Some of William Rutledge's (1792/4-1867) descendants claim William's
father was Richard (1770-1832), son of John, Jr., and Hannah Rutledge
(part of Hanging Rock John's family - Camden/Kershaw SC).

Based on what I have read, Richard had a son named "William A.
Rutledge", but dates don't match those of William C., who went to TX. 

Richard's will of Marion County, AL, made 1831, names sons Abraham,
Smith, William A., and James M..  Another son, John, died in 1823.
Richard's wife was "Winney" (Winefred Patience Elizabeth Blanche SMITH).
Son, William A., above, reportedly was born ca. 1819 and died in 1853.

One of the descendants of Atascosa County, TX Rutledges claims William
Calvin Rutledge was born in Abbeville, SC in 1792, and married Rachel
Williams, born 1806, Jones County, GA, dau of William Williams (not
George).  So, there is a difference of opinion as to the first name of
Rachel's father.

John Dallas "Dally" Berryhill was born in the Old Creek Nation, 
Georgia, about 1789. He was the fifth child born to John and Elizabeth 
(Derrisaw) Berryhill.  John grew up in the Creek Nation but, as a 
youngster, he probably spent a lot of time in the State of Georgia.
John  Dallas Berryhill married Mary Rutledge in Morgan County, Georgia.
Following  is a copy of their marriage license:


----*** <*  ***----

Morgan County
These are to authorize and permit you to join  together in the holy
State of Matrimony according to the rites and  ceremonies of your
church:
JOHN BERRYHILL and MARY RUTLEDGE
and for so  doing this shall be your sufficiant warrant---

minister of the Gospiel Judge Justice of  this Inferior Court or Justice
of the Peace to celebrate--

Th.  Nesbit, Clk P. Tem

* * * * *

I do hereby certify that
JOHN  BERRYHILL & MARY RUTLEDGE

were joined together in the holy bonds of  matrimony by me on this
11th day of January 1809.
Edw'd Brantley,  J.P.


Recorded this 25th day of January 1809
J W Nesbit for
J L  Fannin[?]

----*** <* ***----


After their marriage, John  Dallas and his wife, Mary, settled in the
Creek Nation until the McIntosh  Party of Creeks moved to the West. John
Dallas and Mary had eight children  born in the Old Creek Nation. In
1827, John Dallas Berryhill, and his wife  and children, emigrated to
the Western Creek Lands with the McIntosh Party.  I believe John helped
with this emigration and took his family with the  first party who
arrived in the Western Creek Lands in February 1828. John  Dallas
Berryhill settled his wife and children, with John's parents
and  brothers and sisters, in the fork between the Arkansas and
Verdigris Rivers  near the Creek Agency. John returned to the Creek
Nation in Georgia with  Colonel Brearley, and the others who were
helping with the emigration, for  the second Party of McIntosh Creeks,
which arrived in the Western Lands in  November 1828.

CITY OF RUTLEDGE, GEORGIA:

          
City of Rutledge    
The railroad helped give  birth to Rutledge in 1845 when it pushed through
the community  from Augusta to Marthasville (now Atlanta). The rails being  laid
ran directly through the land of Hezekiah Rutledge. The  trainmen began
calling the area "Rutledge's Place", later just  Rutledge. The city became a
stopover for many train travelers  on the Atlanta- Augusta route. Drummers
(traveling salesmen)  would stay overnight in the local hotel or boarding house. 
Taverns and shops quickly took advantage of the potential  prosperity.

COBB COUNTY GEORGIA:

Hello Angel,
 
I believe I am a member of Henry Lewis Rutledge's family. My great-great 
grandfather was Bryant Spencer Rutledge, an older brother of Henry Lewis.
 
I have been researching my Bryant's line for about 10 years and I live in 
Gwinnett Co., GA and was raised in Cobb Co., GA. But, I unfortunately have not 
done the actual research for the documentation to say they were  diffidently
brothers. I would say what I have found and been told by  others would make it
seem so. But as we all know, "seems so" just doesn't quite  get it around
here. But, I will gladly share with you what I have and maybe I'll  get around to
proving those facts soon. It just hasn't been at the top of my  priority list.
 
This is what I believe to be true - not all  facts within have been verified
with documentation.

Hello Angel.  My name is Carol Rutledge and I live just over the Alabama
line near Temple, GA.  While I haven't been able to track my Rutledge line
beyond SC in 1822, I do know they came through Gwinnett (I think), DeKalb,
Campbell, Carroll, and Haralson Counties.  My great great grandfather's name
was Benjamin H. Rutledge and he was married to Jane Rice.  They had 12
children. Some of them stayed local, but several of them moved through
Alabama and on to Texas.  Some of them I haven't been able to track down.
Perhaps we're related and perhaps not, but I'm certainly willing to share
information just in case.  Carol

 My name is Angel Thomas. I live in Alabama. I am new to the group because
 I
 just started a few months ago looking for Rutledge relatives. I have
 traced
 them (I think) all the way back to Virginia in 1711. I know they moved
 from Va.
 to S.C. and then to Cobb County Ga. Lewis Henry Rutledge was listed on the
 census in 1850 in Powder Springs. I was wondering if anyone had any info
 on any
 Rutledges in that area. Thanks ahead of time for any help.

My Brick Wall are the siblings and ancestry of my gggrand-father and mother.  Benjamin H. Rutledge was born 04/09/1822 in Abbeville Cty, SC and died 09/28/1884 in Haralson Cty, GA.  On 12/22/1844, he married Jane Rice of DeKalb Cty, GA.  Jane was born 01/09/1826 and died in 1936 (no dates on her tombstone).  Both are buried in the Union Hill Cemetery near my home.  Ben's supposed father was a Reason Rutledge born (1790-1800) in SC and died (1840-1850) in Campbell Cty, GA.  He married in approx. 1820, probably in SC, to a Nancy who was born approx. 1795 in SC, remarried to a William South or Smith in Campbell Cty, GA on 08/15/1854, and died after 1855.  I have no further information on gggrandmother Jane.  Ben's supposed siblings are brothers Albert and Hezechiah and sisters Esa and Polly.

My Brick Wall are the siblings and ancestry of my gggrand-father and mother.  Benjamin H. Rutledge was born 04/09/1822 in Abbeville Cty, SC and died 09/28/1884 in Haralson Cty, GA.  On 12/22/1844, he married Jane Rice of DeKalb Cty, GA.  Jane was born 01/09/1826 and died in 1936 (no dates on her tombstone).  Both are buried in the Union Hill Cemetery near my home.  Ben's supposed father was a Reason Rutledge born (1790-1800) in SC and died (1840-1850) in Campbell Cty, GA.  He married in approx. 1820, probably in SC, to a Nancy who was born approx. 1795 in SC, remarried to a William South or Smith in Campbell Cty, GA on 08/15/1854, and died after 1855.  I have no further information on gggrandmother Jane.  Ben's supposed siblings are brothers Albert and Hezechiah and sisters Esa and Polly. 
My Email for questions/responses is carut@bellsouth.net.
Thank you.  Carol

Most of the information on Reason Rutledge came from Family Group Sheets that were filled out by a Deborah Polk in LaGrange, GA, and I have not been able to confirm it all.
Reason Rutledge born between 1790-1800 in SC, married around 1820 in SC, and died between 1840k-1850 in Campbell Cty, GA.  His wife Nancy was born in SC in 1795.  She remarried 08/15/1854 in Campbell Cty, GA, to a William South or Smith.  She died after 1855.  Reason and Nancy had 5 children.
Albert was born 1820-1821 in Abbeville Cty, SC, and died September, 1855, in Campbell Cty, GA.  Benjamin H. was born 04/09/1822 in Abbeville Cty, SC; married 12/22/1844 in Campbell Cty, GA, to Jane Rice.  They had 12 children and there'll be more about them in a bit.  Benjamin died 09/28/1884 in Haralson Cty, GA, and is buried in Union Hill Cemetery.  Hezekiah was born in 1827 in Abbeville Cty, SC, married 11/08/1846 in Campbell Cty, GA to M. Elizabeth Allen.  There was no date of death given.  Hezekiah and Elizabeth are listed in the 1850 GA census with 2 children.  Esa W. was born between 1830-1835 in Anderson Cty, SC.  Polly was born 1835-1840 in Anderson  Cty, SC.  I found Albert, Esa, and Polly listed living with Nancy in the Campbell Cty, GA, 1850 census.
Now, back to Benjamin H. and Jane.  Benjamin's info is listed above.  Jane Rice was born 01/09/1826 in GA possibly in DeKalb Cty.  Her father was listed by Ms. Polk (referred to above) as James or Thomas along with a note that she had 1 brother still alive when she died in 1936.  They had 12 children.  Susan was born in 1845 in Campbell Cty, GA, and married 06/04/1861 to Thomas Underwood.  They are listed in the Carroll Cty, GA, 1870 census with 2 children.  Ellen was born in 1848 in Campbell Cty, GA, and married 12/17/1865 William F. Hicks.  From F King in the SC Most Wanted, she is listed as died 12/04/1920 in Texas.  Ellen and William were married in Haralson Cty, GA.  Thomas R. (aka "Bud") was born 05/25/1850 in Campbell Cty, GA, and married 12/22/1873 in Haralson Cty, GA, to Elizabeth White.  They had 5 children with 1 surviving infancy.  Thomas and Elizabeth are buried in Mt Carmel Cemetery.  Descendants still live in the Carroll Cty, GA area.  Margaret was born in 1853 in Campbell Cty, GA, and married 11/10/1870 a Doctor? Cain.  John Spencer was born February, 1856 in Campbell Cty, and married 12/27/1877 in Haralson Cty to Jo Anna Whitton.  They are listed in the Haralson Cty Marriage Book as JS Rutledge and Jonah Whitton.  They are my great grandparents and had 9 children:  3 died in infancy, 1 died at 28 with no children, and the 5 surviving had grand, great grand, and great great grand children.  Their son J William is in the Haralson Cty Marriage Book as JW and married Minnie Fincher.  Benjamin (possibly BH Jr) was born in 1857 in Campbell Cty and is listed on the Haralson Cty Voters list for 1896-1897.  James A was born 02/25/1860 in Campbell Cty, GA and died 03/02/1905 and is buried in Piney Woods Cemetery.  He may have married twice:  first to Luana who is buried next to him in Piney Woods and second to Eufala Stringer  which is listed in the Haralson Cty Marriage book.  William J. was born in 1861 in Campbell cty, married 09/18/1884 in Haralson Cty to S. Isabella Whitton (she's listed in the HC Marriage book as SJ).  He died in 1931 and both are buried at Union Hill.  Their son WW married Pearl Carroll and a possible second son Olen married Azelea Dean and both of these are listed in the Haralson Cty Marriage Book.  Jane was born 02/28/1864 in Carroll Cty, GA and later married 10/11/1881 to William Washinton Whitton in Haralson Cty.  They had many children, grands, great grands, etc.  The Whitton family has a reunion annually in Haralson Cty.  Joseph M was born in 1865 in Carroll Cty and married 06/01/1890 in Haralson Cty to H A Morgan and possibly married again to Lou Ella? McAdams.  I'm working with a local Mc Adams family for more details on this.  Ephraim (Ephram) was born in 1868 in Carroll Cty and Henry F in April, 1870, in Carroll Cty.  All children except Susan and Ellen are listed as living with Ben and Jane in the Carroll Cty, GA, 1870 census.
There's one other listing in the Haralson Cty Marriage Book for Jones, Charles and Rutledge, Ida on 07/05/1897, but so far I haven't found them.
Hope all this helps someone.  I'll still working on the Rutledge's from close to home, but  would enjoy corresponding with my some of my yet undiscovered cousins.  Thank you, Carol


 


I'm relatively new to computer genealogy and wasn't able to post a query on your web site Most Wanted; I saw the above email address and decided to try it.  On the Georgia Rutledge list, a Kathye ? inquired about the Haralson County, Ga. marriage book listings.  I'm related to most, if not all, the Rutledge's listed in her query.  On the South Carolina Rutledge list, Florence King mentioned a Benjamin Rutledge, his wife Jane, and their 12 children.  My great grandfather was their child #5 named John Spencer Rutledge.  Since her email address was listed, I've sent her an email.
This looks like quite a good site with many "cousins" sharing information.  Please advise me on how or what you might suggest I do to become involved.  You'll probably have to keep it quite simple because I'm not a computer expert; I'm still a novice at this.
Thank you for your time.    Carol Rutledge



 


The article is very interesting.  I am related by Andrew and Johns brother George.  I have their parents as Edward Thomas Rutledge b. Scotland and d. abt. 1725 Tyrone Co., Ire.  wife Elizabeth Graem.  I show Edward Thomas having 7 children:  George, Bryon, Thomas, Katherine, Andrew, Edward and John.  Looks like I will have to change his place of death.

Thanks for telling me about your Rutledge website; I will check it out!
Owen and Rutledge families of Wilkes County, GA are familiar ones.  My
ancestors, Rebecca Jarrett Sappington and her husband, Richard Sappington,
were adm. for the estate of Wm. Partridge.  His daughter, (or niece... I
forgot!) Elizabeth married a Rutledge.  Rebecca Jarrrett 's sister, Sarah,
was the wife of Jesse Partridge.  The Owen name braids in and out of the
Rutledge and Sappington families of Wilkes County.

One of Rebecca Jarrett and Richard Sappington's granddaughters, Rebecca
Jarrett Isabella Sappington b. ca. 1812 Wilkes County, GA, married Jacob
RUTLEDGE Brooks b. 1806 Warren County, GA to James Brooks (son of John Jr.
and Jane May) and Falby Cobb or Storey.

I cannot find the REASON FOR THE RUTLEDGE in my Jacob's name!  I know there
is a Cobb/Rutledge a generation later.  Do you know of a pre 1800

Rutledge: Brooks
Rutledge: Cobb
Rutledge: Storey

Kindest regards... someone who thinks there is a cousin in the woodpile!

I, too, have been searching for proof of Reason Rutledge and Nancy's
being the parents of Benjamin Rutledge.  Many of the documents available
seem to establish a connection between Nancy and Benjamin.  And Reason
seems to be the logical father and husband.

I have added to my records the additional information that you had on
the children and their spouses.  I do have William with the middle
initial of L instead of J--but mine may be a typo--I'll need to check my
records when I have time.

Benjamin was the great-great-grandfather of my husband.  His
great-grandfather was William Francis Hicks, married to Ellen Rutledge
on 7 Dec 1865 in Carroll County, Georgia.

I have the following notes from my mother-in-law (Ozelle) and her older
sister (Ione):
From letter by Ozelle Read King: "You see Grandma Hicks (Ellen Rutledge)
took two or three sons (Otto and Delos) to Waxahachie to put them in the
Presbyterian College there. (They were staunch Cumberland
Presbyterians.) While there, so Ione says, their first Family Bible was
burned when they lost their home by fire.  We have leaves from her
second Family Bible in which she (Ellen Rutledge Hicks) recorded only
her immediate family."

1900 census:  Ellen is mother of 9 children - 5 living; father and
mother both from South Carolina.

Notes from Ione: "Ellen Rutledge Hicks was well educated--Bible
reference books."

These are my notes about Benjamin:  [Family story stated that his name
was James and that he taught the planter's kids.  However, 1850 census
states that he cannot read or write; this is not present on any other
census, but his wife is listed in the 1860 census as not being able to
write.  Three children, ages 15-11, in 1870 census cannot read or
write--probably because of the war.]

25 Dec 1984:  Ione Read stated, "We had an aunt we called Aunt Mag and
one Aunt Susan...the sisters of Ellen Rutledge Hicks." 

Thanks again,
Florence

Reason Rutledge (born 1790-1800 in SC) (married about 1820 in SC to
Nancy ? (born 1795 in SC)/Reason died between 1840-1849 in GA).  Nancy
remarried 08/15/1854 to William South in Campbell Cty, GA.  Their
children:  Albert born about 1820 in Abbeville Cty, SC; Benjamin H. born
04/09/1822 in Abbeville Cty, SC; Hezekiah born in 1827 in Abbeville Cty,
SC; Esa W. born between 1830-1835 in Anderson Cty, SC; Polly A. born
between 1835-1840 in Anderson Cty, SC. Albert, Esa, & Polly are llisted
with their mother in the 1850 Campbell Cty, GA census.  Benjamin was
married with 3 children and Hezekiah was married with 2 children in the
1850 Campbell Cty, GA census. Note:  not all the information on Reason
and Nancy has been verified yet. Benjamin was my
great-great-grandfather. He married 12/22/1844 in Campbell Cty, GA to
Jane Rice who was born 01/09/1826.  They are both buried in the Union
Hill Cemetery in Haralson Cty, GA.  Benjamin died 09/28/1884 and Jane
lived to be about 110 when she died in 1936.  Their children:  Susan
born in 1845 was married to Thomas Underwood 06/04/1861 in Campbell Cty,
GA.  They had 2 children listed in the 1870 Carroll Cty, GA census.
Ellen was born in 1848 and married William E. Hicks 12/07/1865.  Thomas
R. (aka TSB) was born 05/2/1850 and married Elizabeth White 12/22/1873.
They had several children, grandchildren, etc, some of whom still live
in Carroll Cty, GA.  Margaret was born in 1853 and married a Doctor Cain
11/10/1870 in Carroll Cty, GA.  John Spencer was born 02/09?/1856 and
was married to Jo Anna Whitton 12/27/1877. This is my greatgrandfather
and mother; they had 5 surviving children and many grandchildren, etc,
that are scattered throughout Haralson, Carroll, Cobb, and other
counties.  Benjamin (Jr?) was born in 1857 and possibly married a Nancy
(Whitton?).  James A. was born 02/25/1860 and married a Luana? who is
buried with him in the Piney Woods Cemetery in Haralson Cty, GA.
William J. was born in 1861 and married Isabella Whitton 09/18/1884 in
Haralson Cty, GA.  They had many children, grandchildren, etc.  There's
an annual Whitton Family Reunion in September.  Jane was born 02/28/1864
and married William Washington Whitton 10/11/1881.  There's quite a
number of descendants from them.  Joseph was born in 1865 and married H.
A. Morgan 06/01/1890.  Benjamin and Jane's last 2 children were Ephraim
born 1868 and Henry F. born 1870;  I've not found them anywhere except
the 1870 Haralson Cty, Ga census.
Hope this info helps someone out there.     Carol


Jane/Jean Rutledge b. 1742 Augusta County, VA m. Jonathan Brooks b. VA, d.
1790 Montgomery County, VA.

Does anyone have a list of the descendants of this couple?  Were they in
North Carolina at any time?  Did they go to Wilkes County, GA?

Are there Rutledge connections between Jackson Middleton Rutledge and
Middleton Brooks (RWS from Halifax County, VA)

Middleton Brooks was closely tied to The Rev. James Brooks who had a son
named Paschal Brooks. Paschal said both of his parents were b. VA.

Are there connections between the above Rutledge lines and the Wilkes
County, GA  John Rutledge lineage?

Are there connections between Jane/Jean Rutledge and the Rutledges in Troup
County, GA?

Are there Rutledge connections to the Joseph Cobb/Ezekiel Cobb of Wilkes
County, GA?

The questions arise in relationship to my ancestor: Jacob Rutledge Brooks b.
1806 GA, son of James Brooks and Falby Cobb.  I don't know the reason for
his middle name.  (James Brooks, my ancestor, and The Rev. James Brooks,
have been confused and treated as one person).

Jacob married Rebecca J. I. Sappington whose grandparents, Richard and
Rebecca Jarrett Sappington, served as adm. of the estate of William
Partridge, father-in-law of John Rutledge m. to Elizabeth Partridge.
(Elizabeth's brother was married to Rebecca's sister, Sarah Jarrett.).

There is a Rutledge who married two Brooks sisters, daughters of John
Pleasant Brooks b. 1835 GA.

It appears that there is a connection of some kind; I just can't find the
right strings to pull.

Kind regards,
C Forde


A few days ago, Karen Foss brought up Goldie Hawn's Rutledge connection,
saying she claimed to be a direct descendant of Edward Rutledge, signer of the
Declaration of Independence.

I did a little research, and think it is quite likely. Goldie's father was
Edward Rutledge Hawn (1908-1982), a violinist, among other things. Is it
possible that Rutledge was Edward's mother's maiden name?

The original Edward Rutledge, who died in 1800, had only one child Goldie
could be descended from: Henry Middleton Rutledge (1775-1844). Henry had eight
children, two of whom died young. The others were:
Mary (1801-1872)
Edward Augustus (1802-1826)
Henry Adolphus (1805-1883)
Henrietta Middleton (1807-1842)
Emma Middleton (1812-1852)
Arthur Middleton (1817-1876)

Anyone care to take it from there?

Peter Danner


Reason may have had a brother John.  I found a reference to him in the Campbell Cty, GA, 1840 census.  There's a John Rutlege age 50 in the 1850 Carroll Cty, GA census along with Eliza age 23, Joshua age 12, Jackson age 6, and Sarah A age 3 mo.
These Rutledge's are buried within 5 miles of my home in Haralson Cty, GA, and I can take photographs for anyone who wants them:  Benjamin and Jane Rice Rutledge, John S. and Jo Anna Whitton Rutledge, William J. and Isabella Whitton Rutledge, Jane Rutledge and William Washington Whitton.  Note:  there's a Whitton reunion annually on the Saturday following Labor Day at Corinth Baptist Church in Haralson Cty, GA. I am also near the cemeteries where Thomas R. (Bud) and M. Elizabeth White Rutlege and James A. and Luana Rutledge are buried.
My grandmother Rutledge gave me some old, old photographs among which are a few pictures of Jane Rutledge and some of her children.  There is also a photgraph of Jane in what must have been here last years.
 


Hello, Kate
The short answer is I don't think so.  It's my Joseph Rutledge who was
married in Woodville (born in Oglethorpe Co., GA -which I left out).
Joseph's siblings are:
1) Jane m. Joel Glass
2) John m. Elizabeth Stewart
3) Thomas J. m. Nancy Echols
4) Dudley Atkinson m. Rachel Glass
5) Sarah m. Unk Echols
6) James, Jr. m. a)Susannah Sherrer b)Emeline Granberry
(7 - my Joseph)
8) William Owen m. a)Elizabeth Partridge b)Melina Foster c)Edna L. Willis
                                  d)Jane Horton
I don't know the names of 2)John's and 3)Thomas J.'s children.  Maybe
there's a Stephen there.  I don't show a Stephen Rutledge anywhere on my
tree, but there is so much I don't know.  I'll be on the look-out!  Byrd

I am researching - Bryant Spencer Rutledge, b. 1809 in SC, married Eliza H.
Williams, b. 1811 in SC. Came to GA in 1820-30's, lived in Dekalb, Gwinnett,
Walker, and Chattooga Counties.

Had 12 children: descendants accounted for except -- (1) Irvine A. b. 1844 in
GA married Martha Lowe. (2) Robert Randolph b. 1847 in GA. (3) Francis
Isabelle b. 1856 in GA.

On DNA, we fall in Group 2, with one marker difference from ancestors of
Kermit Rutledge, Michael Ray Rutledge and Robert Rutledge. Even a bigger mystery
now!

Hi everyone,
While searching for my Levi Rutledge 1803 Md -1874 IL, I found the
following newspaper article about a Levi Rutledge in Savanah GA.  It is
not my Levi but maybe some else is looking for this person.
Donna in beautiful Oregon

"Stevens Point Daily Journal (Stevens Point, Wisconsin) 26 December 1896
                            Three Homicides
   Savannah, Ga., Dec. 26. - Three homicides are the record of Christmas
in Savannah.  One negro boy shot another through the heart Friday
morning, killing him instantly;  William Titcomb, a white man, was
fatally stabbed in a quarrel early in the morning and died in a few
hours, and Levi Rutledge (colored) was shot and killed by a policeman at
night.


Good morning,

This is another longshot.  Saw your post at IGW and IRELAND lists.  I
have Rutledges, but have not had much luck researching that line, or
finding living cousins.  Maybe you could help ???

This is my RUTLEDGE line in a nutshell . . .

*** James Mayes RUTLEDGE, born 20 Aug 1800, GA, married Sarah Brim
Richardson SMITH, on 2 Sep 1820.  She was born 20 Dec 1795, SC
*** Their daughter, my line, Eliza (Elizabeth) Ann RUTLEDGE, born 7 Mar
1839, IL (or OH ?), died 17 Oct 1920, (ID ?).  I have a picture of her,
the only picture of my RUTLEDGEs.  Would like to find more pictures of
RUTLEDGEs.  She married 28 Jun 1857, Josiah Thomas ELLIOTT (another
deadend line).
*** Their daughter, my line, Sarah Belle ELLIOTT . . . .

That is all that I have for my RUTLEDGEs, except we know that two of our
RUTLEDGE ancestors signed the Declaration of Independance, and the
United States Constitution, I believe James and Edward RUTLEDGE ?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

One more time.  I've seen the George Rutledge and Jean Kleghorn family
discussed in the archives of this list, so hopefully someone is researching
it.  If not, I'll be out of here soon.

This family was in Franklin Co., GA by the late 1780's, Rutherford Co., TN
by the early 1800's, and in LImestone Co., AL by the 1820's.  Traveling
with this family was the family of Thomas Thomas.  A Timothy Thomas married
George & Elizabeth Rutledge's daughter Isabella.  Could this George
Rutledge be the son of George Rutledge and Jean (Kleghorn?) whose daughter
Jean married Thomas Thomas?

Wills Book 3, pg 261

"In the name of God, amen.  I, George Rutledge in the county of Limestone
in the state of Alabama being in good health at present and in perfect mind
and memory thanks be to god for his mercies, but calling into mind the
mortality of my body and knowing that it is appointed  for all men once to
di, do make and ordain this my last will and testament to wit:   I give to
my grandson James Fletcher all the property that was his mothers that I
have in possession.  As to my own property, I will that my wife Elizabeth
have the free use of it during her life and afterwards my property I give
in the following manner.  I give my daughter, Jane Brandon twenty dollars
[current money (?)] also to my daughter Margaret Phillips five dollars
finally the residue of my property I give and bequeth to my daughter Isabel
Thomas forever and I do hereby nominate and appoint John Wofford and
William Wheat Executors of this my last will and testament.  In
confirmation whereof I hereto set my hand and seal this 8th day of August
1827."

Also found in the Limestone Co., AL will books:

Ala Records, Vol 88, Limestone Co., Compiled by Pauline Gandrud, p. 4;

Will Book 3, p. 48, Sale of perishable property of estate of James
Rutledge, deceased, as reported by Nancy Rutledge, administratrix on 23 Dec
1826.  Purchasers were Nancy Rutledge, A.P. Horton, Timothy Thomas, William
Adams, Adam Cox, William Hudson, David Bailey, Richard Baird, E.H. Nixon,
Francis Sorrell, Thomas Pounders, Adam McCane,  _____ (illegible), Charles
G. Hudson, John Humphrey.

Note:  Timothy Thomas was also a purchaser to this estate.  However we have
yet been able to connect this James Rutledge to our George Rutledge.

My husband descends from George Rutledge through his daughter Isabella who
married Timothy Thomas.  Their daughter Mary "Polly" Thomas married John M.
Brandon (possibly a son of Jane Rutledge?) in 1842 in Limestone Co., AL.

Jan,.
You might find this interesting. It is a note to my Cousin John Malcolm
Rutledge in the Desert. He sent this letter on to the assoc. but now we
have new members. You said you wanted a little history about the
Rutledge's and I will send more, as I find it.

John
I talked to dad about your questions.He believes they came to this
country in April 1926 but is a little hazy about it.The name of the ship
was the  LETITCIA of British registry.He played the violin in the ships
band and also was paid to work on the ships newspaper The ship left from
Glasgow and arrived in Montreal Canada. They then took a train to Windsor
where grandpa was there to meet them.He took them to a three bedroom home
completely furnished.This was almost unbelievable for people who lived in
a two room close with a bathroom down the hall.Before coming to this
country they lived in a beautiful town called lochgilphead with grannies
sister Lizzy Gillies.This home faced a beautiful body of water . This was
in the highlands.I saw this area in July 1970. I forgot what year it was
but my dad was goodwill ambassador to Lochgilphead from the Town Alma
Michigan they treated him like a king and he made the newspapers.There
was people still living there that remembered the Rutledges.Especially
grannies sister lizzy. They said she was the grand old lady of the
town.When we went to Lochgilphead we were able to go by automobile.But in
my dads time they had to go by ship to a town near Lochgilphead. When dad
and mother went to Scotland they ran into Betty leach,and Betty was
bragging about being on the same airplane with the goodwill ambassador to
lochgilphead.Was betty surprised when she found out it was my mother and
dad.Any relatives of the Rutledges or Aitkens that came to this country
did not stay they all went back to Scotland.Grandpa came to Canada in
1923 we do not know the name of the ship.He came with the harvesters and
harvested crops in western Canada After his contract with harvesters was
done he worked his way to Windsor.Where Mr. Smith was living.I never met
him, but I new his son Andrew Smith.Mr.Smith and his wife stood up for
Grannies and Grandpas Wedding,in Scotland.I think Mr. Smith was from
Aberdeen .Andy Smith told me that as a small boy he had to share his bed
with Grandpa.Grandpa got a Job working with a Detroit shipyard.After a
short time he answered an advertisement to work as a sheet metal worker
for R.C.Mahon Co.In a matter of a couple of months after hiring in he was
made shop superintendent,he was very smart and ambitious.he learned his
trade in the old country plus he graduated from a correspondence
course.The young smith boy Andrew got a job through Grandpa and became
one of Mahons top sales people.Grandpa sent the money for his whole
family to come to Canada that was for Grannie and six kids.But the
captain of the ship would not allow them to go because their child Andrew
was very ill.I believe it was then that grandpa went back to Scotland for
two months vacation.After Andrew died they were able to come to this
country.Andrew was sick his whole life from birth and was not able to
attend school.I said to my dad, Grandpa had a lot of guts coming to this
country expecting to find work and earning enough money to bring his
family over.My dad agreed but said grannie took even a bigger chance, she
had six children and her husband may of disappeared in the new world.He
said he knew of a couple men that changed there names and vanished.He
said that he read part of some letters that Grandpa wrote and there was
no doubt he loved his wife.I guess that the bad rutledges from the
borders did have some good points and above all loyalty.

wow I did not mean to get so carried away

RE: Early GA Records, Vol I and II, p. 248

Rumsey, Reuben 1, Rumsey, Richard; old soldier, Rutledge, William P.
Sappington, Richard, Sappington, Caleb, Washington, Geo., Wheatley, Geo.

First, I am not certain I am reading this correctly... but, it appears that
William P. Rutledge was involved in a land deal with my ancestors, Richard
Sappington and his son, Caleb Sappington.  Does anyone know if there is a
kinship involved?  I believe this same Rutledge was a co-adm. with Richard
Sappington for a will.  (Wilkes County, GA.)  I am interested in knowing the
extended family and descendants of William P. Rutledge as well as kin
connection to the Sappingtons.

Caleb Sappington's daughter, Rebecca Jarrett Isabella Sappington b. 1811 or
1812  married Jacob Rutledge Brooks b. 1806, Walton County, GA. I believe
that Jacob Rutledge Brooks was connected to William P. Rutledge above as
well.

Kind regards, Cynthia



GEORGIA TAX INDEX, 1789-99:

Rutledge, George, Wilkes Co, Ragan District, 1791

Rutledge, James,  Oglethorpe Co, Duke District, 1798

Rutledge, James, Oglethorpe Co, Wagnon Dist., 1798

Rutledge, John, Richmond Co, Ward Dist., 1797

Rutledge, Kiah,  Oglethorpe Co, Roberts Dist., 1798

Rutledge, Russell, Richmond Co, Ward Dist., 1797

Rutledge, Thomas, Greene Co, Melton Dist.,  1797

Rutledge, Thomas, Oglethorpe Co, Duke Dist.,  1798

I have a feeling one of these is my brickwall and father of my ancestor,
Charles Rutledge, b. 1800 GA., died Chambers Co, AL.  The first proof I
have of Charles' existence was when he married in Morgan Co, GA, in
1825.  About this same time, several of the above were also found in
Morgan Co;  John, Kiah, and Russell.  Most of the others were "in the
area". 

John had a son, Samuel, who was in some of the same places, during the
same time periods, as Charles, e. g., Morgan Co, GA, 1820, and Chambers
Co, AL, 1840.  Samuel was about 5 years older than Charles.  I thought:
"maybe Samuel was Charles' brother"!  But then someone names all of
John's children, and Charles isn't one of them!  Bummer!
Maybe he was inadvertently left out?  Oh, and Charles' 1st or 2nd
(difficult to tell which) son was named John. 

I "think" Samuel's parents' were John and Elizabeth (Stewart) Rutledge;
and his grandparents were James and Ann (Owen) Rutledge.  BTW, this
Samuel is the one that married Francis McClendon in Morgan Co, GA, 1818.

I have eliminated Kiah as the father of Charles because of a will Kiah
left...and Charles wasn't listed as an heir.  "Course he could have been
displeased with Charles for some reason and left him out of the will!

There is a Russell Rutledge that married in Morgan Co, GA, in 1812, but
unless that was his 2nd, or so, marriage, I have to eliminate his as the
possible father, because Charles was born 1800.

Then, I eliminated Thomas simply because Charles had no children by that
name.  Is that a good enough reason??
Anyway, a Thomas as the possible father is far down on my list...good
logic, or not.

Anyone descending from the above James, John, or Samuel want to do some
DNA testing?  I've decided that's the ONLY way I will EVER prove a
connection.

A Record of John Rutledge and his descendents

by Houston Odell Rutledge & Sybil King Rutledge

John Rutledge, b 15 Sep 1810 in NC; d 30 Jul 1880 in Jamestown, Ark, buried in the old Jamestown cemetery near his wife, the rock marker is now missing from his grave. A sketch of this family now in possession of a Mr. R. E . Moore of Pine Bluff, Ark, says he was born at Shiloh Ford of the Atkins, NC. I believe we will find that he was born in Duplin Co, NC. He is the son of James & Sarah (Willis) Rutledge. James d 7 Dec 1848 and Sarah rutledge d 14 Feb 1846, these dates and names are the earliest records in the Gilbert Calloway Rutledge Bible, now owned by Mr Vernon Varnell of Batesville, Ark. The sketch listed her as Sarah Willis and listed James' father as Edward Rutledge. There were errors in the sketch, some had been corrected by Gilbert Calloway Rutledge.

I have records that trace Edward Rutledge and his wife, Sarah (Armstrong) Rutledge from a will filed in Augusta Co, VA, on back to Ireland, however, we do not have proof at this time, due to lack of birth date and place for our James Rutledge, father of the above John Rutledge. These records were donated by Mr J Frank Berry of Lewis, Iowa, who does belong to the family of the well known Ann Rutledge that supposedly was engaged to Abraham Lincoln.

John Rutledge married 20 Jan 1835, Miss Rebecca Parsons, born 11 May 1814-1815 Tenn; died 5 Aug 1860 Jamestown, AR., buried in the old Jamestown Cemetery, has a stone headstone on her grave. She was the daughter of Mr Thomas Parsons and Mrs Susan (Madice) Parsons. The Bible gives the year of her birth as 1814 and her headstone has 1815.

We find John & Rebecca living in the section of Alabama that became Cherokee Co in 1836, they were there in 1835 before it was named. The 1850 Census shows John & Rebecca and five of their children, one child had died and was not listed. His name was spelled Rulage instead of our way of spelling Rutledge on that census record. Mr Legrand Dean was also listed as a helper on John's farm.

The courthouse in Cherokee Co, Alabama, burned in 1882, however, I did obtain the Census Record from Mrs. Robert Neville Mann in Cedar Bluff, Alabama, a genealogist.

John & Rebecca owned a large farm and the children helped with the farm work. When the oldest son was 17 years old, this whole family left Cherokee Co and came to Arkansas, settling around Alderbrook which was later names Jamestown, Ar. Some of the descendents still recall the stories their parents passed down to them about John owning slaves on his farm or plantation in Alabama and that he would sell his 14 & 15 year old slave boys. They left Alabama and arrived in Arkansas in 1852.

A John Rutledge served in the civil War under Capt Samuel R Fetzer and was on the muster roll of the members of this company when they were surrendered on 11 May 1865 and listed him as living in Galloway, Arkansas. References to the Independent Co Chronicle, Vol VI # 2, page 34 & 43.

Ten children were born of this marriage, as follows:

  1.. Gilbert Calloway Loranzo Huston Rutledge

  2.. Sarah Jane Rutledge

  3.. Francis Marion Rutledge

  4.. Letha Emily Rutledge

  5.. Columbus Knox Polk Rutledge

  6.. Amanda L Rutledge

  7.. Jane Rutledge

  8.. William H Rutledge

  9.. John Gard Rutledge

  10.. Daniel C Rutledge

I am trying to send a message to Sean, but it s keeps being bounced hence sending through the list. Sean, Altough your reply was YES to my question below, I could not find any positive reference on your site to my Mary RUTLEDGE and Thomas MORAN. Can you provide any further information on this? Original Message was: "Sean, I see that you have an interest in the RUTLEDGE name. This is a long shot, but in my wife's family a Mary RUDLEDGE married a Thomas MORAN around 1810-15 probably in Ballina. Is there any connection with your family/research?" In addition I have the information that Mary was born around 1787 and possibly in Killala and had some connection to the O'Donnell family. Many thanks for any help you can provide Peter Harris

Thank you Darryl. I have already sent the information to my friends. I think with all those Rutledges living in Chattooga county at the same ime( Bryant S. my James and William A) there has to be some connection. All these families lived within 10 miles of each other. They at least knew each other. The problem is I don't. Mike Rutledge, Boaz AL

Kermit Rutledge" To: Sent: Thursday, June 01, 2000 2:45 PM Subject: [RUTLEDGE-L] John RUTLEDGE in Colonial GA I've been attempting to identify the John RUTLEDGE mentioned in the following records. What makes it even more difficult (for me) is the time frame involved. Possibly some learned person on the list can solve this puzzle. RE: Margaret Cate Collection at the Georgia Historical Society, Savannah, GA. **List of original settlers on St. Simons Island includes a John RUTLEDGE. **Around 1736, Gen. James Oglethorpe established Fort Frederica on St. Simons Island (between SC and FL) A list of soldiers stationed at this fort includes a John RUTLEDGE.

Maybe these are two different "Johns" ? The first was a soldier in 1736. Can't see him also in the Revolutionary War...he probably would have been about 60 in 1776. Any ideas? Kermit Rutledge

----- Original Message ----- From: "Mike Rutledge" To: Sent: Sunday, May 28, 2000 4:50 PM Subject: [RUTLEDGE-L] some things I have found Hello to all the Rutledge lines. I subscribe again at the first part of May. I had several weeks that I just didn't have time to read the all post. In my travels around AL over the past two months I was able to visit some people and the state archives twice. I didn't crack my brickwall (James A. b. 1802) but I did find a few small bits of information which I have added to my files. I hope to be able to spend some time this summer tracking down a few of the Rutledge's. I'm sending some names, notes, and dates. If anyone recognizes any of the missing parts please let me know. If you think I have drawn the wrong conclusions let me know. Mike Rutledge, Boaz AL ( I always put the Boaz on because there are several Mikes) 28 May 2000 First Generation 1. James Rutledge. Born Circa 1770/1780. There is some evidence that James had at least 4 sons James A b 1802 NC.; John b. 1810 Atkins NC; Wilson b. about 1803 NC; and Thomas b. about 1809-10. I can find no proof at this time where James came from before moving to Cherokee CO. AL. John and Wilson both moved to Independence CO. AR in about 1857-59. Their families were in Cherokee County AL and are listed in the 1840 and 1850 census records. James wife may have been Sarah Willis also from NC. The family records of John b.1810 states that his father was James Rutledge d. 7 Dec, 1848 and Sarah Willis d. 14 Feb, 1846 was his mother. Other Rutledge family members in Cherokee CO. AL in 1840's and 1850's are buried at Oak Bowery Methodist Church. This cemt. does not have markers with dates of death in the 1840's, but there are some sandstone markers there which are unreadable. I did find two sand stone markers at the site of James Rutledge's (b. 1802) land which he was living on in 1837. There are no readable markings on the stones. I have visited the Drake family several times over the years as they now reside on the farm where James once lived. Mrs.. Drake showed me the markers. The 160 acres was purchased in the 1930's for $1100. He married unknown Rutledge. Born Circa 1765. They had the following children: 2 i. James A. Rutledge 3 ii. Thomas Rutledge Second Generation 2. James A. Rutledge. Born 11 Nov 1802 in NC. Died Nov 1875 in Cherokee CO. AL. Occupation farmer. Education read & write. On census records for James I found in 1850 a Thomas Rutledge born 1810 was living in the same household. In the 1860 census I found a Simpson A. P. Rutledge age 80 living in the same household. The 1860 census records I looked at were in the Gadsden Library. The card appeared to have Simpson as age 80. I checked the State Archives in Montgomery in April, 2000. The archives had Simpson listed as a child age 8. This could be correct as all the birth dates of the children would be correct. BUT Simpson was not listed in the family Bible as a child. In the 1840 census records for Cherokee CO James was listed at house/land # 124 there was also a James at 124 that appeared to be his father and a woman that was his mother. They were listed with birth dates between 1780 and 1770. Also listed at #132 was Wilson Rutledge and his family who later moved to Ark. Another brother appears to be John Rutledge who also moved to Ark. I have no direct proof of the relationships of what I believe to be 4 brothers and their father and mother living in Cherokee CO in the 1840 census.(James, Thomas, John, and Wilson with their father James and mother Sarah) In the 1850 census records for Cherokee CO AL I found Thomas Rutledge living in the same household with James b. 1802. I can only conclude that he was a brother of James due to the ages. Thomas was listed as 40 years old so his date of birth would have been cira 1810. In the 1870 census I found a TJ Rutledge living in Cherokee CO with Fannie Dykes, female age 30 born in AL. This TJ list his pace of birth as TN. The ages match with Thomas found in the 1850 census living with James. There is some evidence that the father of James and Thomas was living in TN before coming to AL. The Dykes family received land adjoining James Rutledge when they arrived in Cherokee CO in 1838. He married Mary A.??? Rutledge Born 22 Apr 1818 in NC. Died 31 Aug 1901 in Chattooga CO, GA. Religion Baptist. "Death of Mrs.. Rutledge" from the Summerville News Sept. 4, 1901. Mrs.. Rutledge, an aged lady of Chattoogaville died at the home of her son at that place last Saturday afternoon. Rev. J.H. Glazner, her pastor conducted the funeral services. Mrs.. Rutledge was the mother of our esteemed friend, T.B. Rutledge, and we extend to him and other relatives our sympathy in their bereavement. I was told by Sue Hooper gg-granddaughter of Mary A. that she spoke German and never learned to speak English. Sue said her father told her this story as he heard it as a child. The 1900 census does state that both her parents were born in Germany. I have not as yet been able to verify this, nor to determine what Mary's last name was before marring James 1802. I did find a will for GERHARD WILL of Tryon CO. NC dated 3 July, 1778 with James Routledge as a witness. The will had German signatures. The Rutledge name is spelled a number of different ways within the same family lines. This could be a led. Gerhard was born in Germany, but I do not know about his children who WOULD/COULD be one of the parents of my Mary. They had the following children: 4 i. John W Rutledge 5 ii. Sarah C. Rutledge 6 iii. William H. Rutledge 7 iv. James A. Rutledge 8 v. Lidia C. Rutledge Terrance 9 vi. Thomas Burton Rutledge 10 vii. Andrew Jackson (Henry) Rutledge 11 viii. Joel H. Rutledge 3.

Atlanta Historical Society
Atlanta, Georgia.

My dear Miss Blair:
I appreciated very much your reply to my letter of inquiry about some of
the early settlers in Georgia, and the Atlanta Historical Bulletin you so
kindly sent me.
These pioneers, who went from the Carolinas to Georgia, stayed there for
awhile and then went to Tennessee, Kentucky, Illinois and even to Oregon
as the tides of emigration swept west-ward were intelligent, industrious
and religious, but I doubt if they left many records in the states through
which they passed.

I am happy to send you what I have about the ones who lived for a time
in Georgia.

Robert Hawthorn was born March 5, 1754 in County Monaghan, Ireland. 
While residing on the Broad River in South Carolina, Robert Hawthorn served
with the South Carolina troops from Nov. 1, 1776 for eleven moths and two
weeks.

From that time he served almost continuously until the evacuation of
Charleston, S. C.  After  the Revolution, he moved to Elbert County,
Georgia where he lived about ten years.  Then he moved  to Henderson Co.
Kentucky,where he lived about twelve years and then to Illinois.  He died in
White Co., Ill., July 7, 1834.

June 3, 1783, Robert Hawthorn married Mary (Cameron) McClary.  She was
the widow of Robert McClary, a Revolutionary soldier, who died while in
service in the fall of 1781 in Camden, S. C.  There were two McClary Children,
Susan and Mary.  Susan married Peter Miller so of John Miller in Georgia about
1796.  The Peter Millers moved to Henderson Co. Ky., in the fall of 12807
and to White Co., Ill., in 1813.

Mary McClary married a North, Sidney, I believe in Georgia.  Robert
Hawthorn and Mary (Cameron) McClary Hawthorn had a son Robert Hawthorn Jr. and
perhaps other children.  Mary ( Cameron) McClary Hawthorne was born in Scotland
in Feb. 1759 and came to the Carolinas with her parents about 1767.

Joseph Hawthorn, a brother of Robert was born in County Monaghan
Ireland, July 10, 1756.  While living in Fairfield Co., S. C. he enlisted in the
Spring of 1779 and served until June 1782.. He married Sept. 5, 1797 in
Elbert County, Georgia, Frances Ellis.  She was his second wife.  He died
in White County, Ill., Oct. 30, 1849.

Joseph Hawthorn had a daughter by his first marriage, Margaret who married
a Fowler.  He also had a son Robert H, Hawthorn, who was a soldier in the
Civil War.  He enlisted on the southern side from Camden County, Tennessee, at
the age of sixty.

John Miller and His wife and one or more children came from Scotland to
the Carolinas about 1767.  At least one child, Nancy, was born in Scotland.
Peter Miller, so of John, was born in 1768.  He married Susan A.
McClary, daughter of Robert and Mary  (Cameron) McClary, in Georgia, about 1795. 
They had a large family moved to Henderson County, Ky., and than to White Co.,
Ill.

James Miller, son of John, was borne in Georgia in 1782.  He married
Jane Rutledge, daughter of John and Jane (Officer) Rutledge in Georgia Oct.
12, 1807.  They went to Henderson co., Ky. In the fall of 1807 and to White
County Ill., in 1813.

Mary Ann Miller was born in South Carolina (or Georgia) Oct. 21, 1767,
the daughter of John Miller.  She was married to James Rutledge, so of John
and Jane (Officer) Rutledge in Henderson County, Ky., Jan. 28, 1808 (see
Rutledges)

Coming over on the same ship from Scotland were the Camerons.  They had
at least two children, Mary who married Robert McClary and then Robert
Hawthorn and Thomas Cameron, born in Scotland 1766.
I have a letter written by Sally Rutledge, sister of Ann Rutledge.  She
said "I remember hearing mother tell how her father crossed the water.  Uncle
Tommy Cameron was just a baby and fell over-board.  Some one caught him
by the big tow".  Thomas Cameron married Nancy Miller, daughter of John
Miller (referred to before.) in Georgia about 1796.  Thomas Cameron built a
block-house here in the War of 1812.

I do not know the name of John MillerE28099s wife.  As far as I know
John Miller and his wife did not reach Illinois.  I do not know who the parents of
Mary and Thomas Cameron were.  Also Susannah.

John Rutledge was born in Ireland in 1739.  He married Jane Officer who
was born in 1749.  They came to South Carolina where there oldest son was
born Oct. 17, 1768.  He married Sarah Smith in Georgia.  She was born Aug.
20, 1778 and died Dec. 12, 1843,  He did in McLean County, Ill., Aug. 20, 1830.

Robert Rutledge was born in South Carolina (or Georgia, Sept. 22, 1783)
married Susannah Mayes and died in Henderson Co., Ky.  in 1822.

James Rutledge was born in South Carolina May 11, 1761 and married Mary
Ann Miller daughter of John Miller in Henderson Co. Ky., in 1808.  Two
children,

John Miller Rutledge and Ann Mayes Rutledge were born in Kentucky, four
were born in White Co, Ill. Where they came in 1813, and three were born in
Sangamon Co., Ill. Where James Rutledge founded the village of New Salem.

Jane Rutledge married James Miller (see Millers) Susan Rutledge married a
Mr Mayes.  Both died in Georgia about 1815.  Uncle Billy Rutledge and Uncle
Thomas Mayes, who were in White Co., Ill., cut rounds from a tree to make
an Ox-cart and went back to Georgia for the five orphaned children, Mary,
Melinda, Minerva, Jane and Samuel Mayes --- one a six moth old baby.

William Rutledge was born in Georgia in 1790.  He married Susannah Cameron
in Henderson Co. Ky.

James Mayes who married Sarah Miller, (sister of Peter, James, etc.) 
Thomas Mayes, the Mayes who married a Rutledge girl, and the Susannah Mayes who
married Robert Rutledge all lived in or near Mayesville, Georgia.  Could
the town have been name for their people?

Another family that lived in George were the McLins.  Daniel McLin whose
daughter, Jane married Robert Orr in Tennessee about 1790, John McLin
who married Elizabeth Goudy in Tennessee, and Reverend David W McLin who
organized the first Cumberland Presbyterian Church in Illinois, June 8,
1819

These people were farmers but they were also school teachers, justices of
the peace and above all E28093 ruling elders in the Presbyterian Church. 
The first Presbyterian Church in Illinois (Old School) was organized in the home
of Thomas Rutledge in 1816, and the second Presbyterian Church (which was
the first Cumberland) was organized in the home of James Miller (Son of John)

Some time in the future, I may be able to come to Georgia.
                                       
                                                     Very sincerely yours,

                                                      (Mrs. Chalon T.)

The last group of Rutledges (Byrant Spencer) is my brickwall.

Any information would be helpful.
 
I did find Byrant Spencer Rutledge listed in the 1850 Federal Census index
for GA. I have not been able to research this yet.


From: Jyasui@aol.com To: RUTLEDGE-L@rootsweb.com Sent: Saturday, February 12, 2000 2:30 PM Subject: Re: [RUTLEDGE-L] Rutledge Family List
I keep watching the list for any info concerning Byrant Spencer Rutledge
(1809-1896), wife Eliza (maybe Elizabeth) Williams (1811-1888) lived in GA.
Possibly out of SC. Had 12 children: Joseph S., Martha Ann, William H., James
M., Thomas J., John H., Irvine A., Robert Randolph, Gilbert Witherspoon, Mary
Elizabeth, Amanda Leutitia, Frances Isabelle.

I have no idea who Byrant Spencer's parents were etc. I am Joseph S. 's
g-granddaughter still living in Gwinnett Co., GA.   Any Help. Anybody?


Rutledge rooters:

Don Kelly's brickwall and unidentified ancestor pics website has dealt this
"orphaned" Rutledge branch an unexpected hand. Not sure if a curse or an
opportunity.   Beginning in July we have been communicating with descendant
branches of the James Rutledge of Lunenburg VA line who "share" the picture
of Joseph and/or strong
duplicate naming patterns.

A picture handed down to us by my gr.gr.grandmother Melissa Ann McCay/McCoy
Rutledge, the "widow" of our Joseph Rutledge, is a copy of an original
found hanging in a Troup Co. GA home built by a Joseph Rutledge in the
early 1850s.

Boy are we confused!  Our Joseph and Marie H. Rutledge's Joseph born about
the same time and possibly in nearby places, but with different
simultaneous spouses and families, a few counties away????

After re-studying the geography and dates several times think this might be
possible:  "Our Jos" according to Census records was b. c. 1810 in SC:
"Came out of nowhere" and md. a young Halls Co. (probably Cherokee) lady in
1839 (she b. 1823 SC?) and resided in Forsyth Co. GA 1839-46; then in
Talladega Co AL 1846-1860; died of "unanswered" circumstances and without a
recorded burial in early 1860.  There was an estate "settlement" later but
Melissa lost the farm.  

Due to the Civil War (and possibly the Cherokee-American Indian relocation
regulations) there were underlying factors now presenting more
possibilities and questions.  By 1867 Melissa packed up her war-returning
and remaining younger children and wagoned to Tahlequah in the Indian
territory to visit relatives (and marry off her remaining children).  She
had ten children born every couple of years from 1840 until 1859.  Many
descendants today.

Marie H. Rutledge's Jos: was born and raised in Wilkes Co. GA 1811-30s; md.
spouse #1 and resided Oglethorpe Co, GA c. 1833-40s; then resided in Troup
Co. GA c. 1846-92 where he is buried.  Had two children by first wife, born
1832 & 1834.  He married twice after being widowed in 1861, had two more
children by spouse #2 in late 1860s.  This Joseph was well connected to
James of Lunenburg VA line, had large plantation and holdings.

Wilkes GA and Talladega Al are only two counties away! Oglethorpe and
Forsyth also a straight shot across three counties.

There are duplicate name patterns from another branch of the James of
Lunenburg VA line also found in Joseph and Melissa's children.

Ready for this: Two years ago Rachel D. Clemons suggested a link to this
line via another Joseph, which we discounted when we saw he had married
another GA lady in 1846.  Now we need to revisit the family of Joseph
Rutledge and Nancy Harden/Hardin Rutledge of GA to see if there is a
possibility his son might be the connection.  This Joseph also descended of
James of Lunenburg VA.

Will the real Joseph Rutledge please stand.  Suggestions?

A very perplexed Richard,
On CA Central Coast


Richard,

My name is Jeanne.  Mike Rutledge and I have just discovered that we are both
descendents of Alfred Henry.  Maybe together we can find out about Joseph Sr.
By the way, I'm in the northern part of the central coast in Santa Cruz.

who md. Melissa Ann McCoy 1 Oct 1839 in Forsyth, GA, or another who md.
Elsena C. Donathan 5 Nov 1846 in Monroe, MS.

Indications are good that the Joseph & Melissa family fit in, or Joseph may
have been related as a nephew or cousin.  The "Harden" name as used down
the line is a key.

Baptists/Methodists?

Do you know Benjamin's exact birth place?  I think it is helpful that you
already know the progression of how they arrived in Georgia.  That might
narrow your search.  A number of families seem to have come down out of
PA to VA (some were Presbyterian and left PA because the Quaker influence
was strong and they were having problems living as they wanted). 
In VA, a generation or so later (and probably after the revolution,
the families split again; some going to North & South Carolina; others
started west; and still others stayed in VA.  Also, do you know how
Chorea is carried through blood lines... is it passed on by male or
female or both?  I've not heard of it in our line which we are beginning
to trace back to VA.  We are finding a Rice contingency in the area of
Prince Edward and Charlotte Counties.  CBR

Am told that three Rutledge brothers (probably of John, married three Whitton

the
brothers...all in one of the Ga counties listed above.

From research I have done..I believe that the ancestors of Benjamin came into
Ga from SC...also that they came to SC from Va and to Va from Pa

Huntington's Disease (Chorea) is a Hereditary Disease....

I would appreciate any info any one has on this line

I've just joined this list, and have searched the list archives for "my"
John Rutledge, but haven't seen a connection.  My husband descends from
Kate Rutledge, wife of George Gamel, from Mason Co, TX.  Kate's parents
were John Rutledge and Betsy Helm.  John Rutledge was said to be a
Colonel, but I have no verification of this.  Betsy was the daughter of
a white trapper and a Choctaw woman.

John Rutledge married Betsy Helm in Indian Territory, and separated
after about 7-8 years.  At that time, the family was living in Arbuckle,
Chickasaw Nation.  When John and Betsy separated,  daughter Kate went
with her father to Ft. Smith, AR.  He died on a business trip to Mobile,
AL, when Kate was 8 yrs old.  This would have been about 1853.  He was a
cotton buyer.  Kate then went to live with her mother, near Atoka, in
Choctaw Nation.  As a small child, she also went to live at Camp Burdey,
along with other Indians.  It is not known whether both of her parents
were with her at this time.

This is from sworn testimony of Kate Gamel, 24 Aug 1896, United States
Court, IT,
at Ardmore, when she applied for citizenship in the Choctaw tribe.  Her
citizenship was denied due to lack of evidence, even though several
people testified to knowing her and her mother all their lives, and
knowing her mother to be of the Choctaw tribe.

Kate said that her father was b. in GA.  The post on 8 Feb 2000 from
PNO, which listed Bible entries for the James Rutledge family, had a
John Rutledge b. March 12, 1809.  I couldn't tell from the post if this
was a family from SC or GA. 

Does anyone connect to the John Rutledge b. 12 Mar 1809?  Thinking he
could perhaps be my connection.

Benjamin & Jane Rutledge are buried in Union Hill Cemetary Located approx 5 or 6 niles
north of Buchanan, Ga on Morgan Road.  Inscription on Tombstone says birth date is 1822.

Huntington Disease is transmitted by either parent to their offspring. If both parents have the disease, each offspring is at risk...if only one parent is aflicted, each offspring has a 50/50 risk factor.

The National Institute of Health in Washington has recently put out a pamphlet on HD.

                JOHN RUTLEDGE        By T. G. Rutledge   page 432

John Rutledge (1765-1830) came to Gwinnett before 3/30/1819 from SC, with
three white females b 1770, 1799 and 1805 and three slaves. He was listed
1819 as a taxpayer in Capt. Cupp's District.[ He settled in the southern
sec- tion of the county near Haynes Creek. When Haynes Creek Baptist Church
was established 4/l/1826, John Rutledge was a charter rnernber and is bur.
there.2
John Rutledge was a private in 2nd Georgia Bn.. during the Revolutionary
War. He served I/l/1782-11/4/1783 under Capt John Lucas and Capt. William
MacKintosh.3 During the 1827 Georgia Land Lottery, when he lived in Wallis
district, he had an extra draw as a Rev. soldier.4 In 1832 a John Rutledge,
Sr., Loveless district, drew 40 acres in lot 452, District 4, Section 1, in
the Chero- kee Gold Lottery.5
The estate of a John Rutledge paid taxes in 1873 on lot 452, Dawson Co.(;
The 1830 census showed two John Rutledges in Gwinnett, both men having been
b 1795. Three persons are shown in one family and eight in the other. In the
latter, a white female 50-60 may have been the widow of John Rut-

To: "Richard Daly Reddick" Subject: Georgia Census

Here is a list of Rutledges on the 1820 and 1830 census. Some of the 1820 list was difficult to read. I think they are pretty accurate and I did my best to check my typing, but I won't swear to anything. I hi-lighted the ones that had children that could have been Joseph. There were only 2 such families in 1830. On the last sheet I sent you regarding GA tax lists, there has always been a James in Oglethorpe Co. One appears to be older.

We don't of course know when he ("our Joseph or James") came to Georgia, but at least it's a place to start. I haven't looked at SC census yet, but I would imagine there are a lot of Rutledges. Next trip to the library I plan to check on Hall & Forsyth Co. land, court and probate records for McCoys, as well as Rutledge. Feed back always welcome.

Rutledge rooters: A cousin just copied 1820 and 1830 Rutledges from census data. Anyone interested send drop a note. The document is in WinWord, but if you prefer straight text let me know. Richard

To: "Richard Daly Reddick" Subject: Georgia Census Date: Thu, 16 Sep 1999 08:21:58 -0400

Here is a list of Rutledges on the 1820 and 1830 census. Some of the 1820 list was difficult to read. I think they are pretty accurate and I did my best to check my typing, but I won't swear to anything. I hi-lighted the ones that had children that could have been Joseph. There were only 2 such families in 1830. On the last sheet I sent you regarding GA tax lists, there has always been a James in Oglethorpe Co. One appears to be older.

We don't of course know when he ("our Joseph or James") came to Georgia, but at least it's a place to start. I haven't looked at SC census yet, but I would imagine there are a lot of Rutledges. Next trip to the library I plan to check on Hall & Forsyth Co. land, court and probate records for McCoys, as well as Rutledge. Feed back always welcome.

From: To: Sent: Sunday, September 05, 1999 7:41 PM Subject: [RUTLEDGE-L] John T. Cupit Report Hi Tee... As I began to look at how to get you the Leonardo Andrea information, I noticed a reference to Joseph Rutledge in the Cupit data... I know you mentioned that you've looked long and hard at Cupit's stuff, but I want to send this on just in case it's something new.... This I found in "A Tentative Report on the American Rutledges" by John T. Cupit, Rosepine, LA. I copy the section pertaining to Joseph Rutledge: Quote: "Let me digress a lilttle on another family. Here is what I believe to be Joseph's lineage, the Joeph who moved to South Carolina. Richard Rutledge was granted 274 acres in Amelia County Va. Sept. 20, 1750. This Richard seems to be closely related to Edward, James, John, and Thomas of about the same date. James and Richard were obtaining grants about the same date, Joseph Rutledge had a grant about 25 years later, Edward about 20 years later, and Richard and John were named as selling land to Richard Blanton in 1779, this was a part of their father's estate (father not named). Now couldn't this be sons of James and Mary Rutledge? John was living on property belonging to James and Mary Rutledge at one time. In 1778 James sold land in Prince Edward adjoining land patented by Edward Rutledge on Sandy River where the lands were located in Amelia 30 years earlier. It also adjoined land owned by Owens and if you will check the James Rutledge family of GA. you will find that one of James's sons married an Owens. You will find that Joseph Rutledge sold land in 1777 to Joseph Atkins. And again if you will check you will find that one of James Rutledge's sons was named Atkins, or may be it was a grand son. I believe James and Joseph left Virginia and moved to South Carolina. And James later moved into Georgia. Joseph's land adjoined Jesse Owens. Owens moved to South Carolina and Anne Owens married Joseph Rutledge son of John Rutledge, son of James Rutledge. End Quote: Not sure this helps, or if your've seen it....but I send it on for what its worth.... In this particular report there is about six more pages of info...Mentioning esp George and William Rutledge...if it sounds interesting I think I can squeeze it into an email...Let me know...More on the other stuff soon...John Rutledge in Oregon

Hi Freida!

Haven't heard a squeak out of you in a long time! Hope all is well!

I don't think I have the will! Not James Jrs.... But it's Dad's notes I
found the Bible record in. It's just a transcript not a copy and it says the
Bible is in the possession of the family of Duke Davis in LaGrange, GA

Here goes:

JAMES RUTLEDGE
His Book now who can doubt it
August the 29th The year of Our Lord 1826
JAMES RUTLEDGE was Borned August 28th 1786
SUSANNA RUTLEDGE was Borned September __1790
He was married September __1807
Children
JOHN RUTLEDGE was Borned March the 12th 1809
JOSEPH RUTLEDGE was Borned February 14th 1811
JAMES RUTLEDGE was Borned April the 12th 1813
ANNA RUTLEDGE was Borned January the 1st 1815
End of Bible entries
On a fly leaf
JANE BROOKER, the wife of JOSEPH RUTLEDGE was born July 22nd 1815 and died
Mar. 17, 1861
JOSEPH RUTLEDGE settled in Troup County, GA. 9 miles from LaGrange where he
built a home in 1850-1852

Annie Jane Robertson married Marquis Lafayette Fleming
They had
Olin Butler Fleming
Mary George Fleming Cooper
Lucille Fleming Davis

The data on this fly leaf evidently jotted down in 1922 since that year is at
the end of these entries...Leonardo Andrea.

There! How do we get this posted on the Rutledge Assoc website?

Also, from 1st marriage book 1806-1834 (Wilkes Co, GA look-up--sent to me by
email yesterday)
JAMES RUTLEDGE to SAVANNAH SHEARER 20 Nov. 1807, p.20
(misprint? Everything I have--including his Bible--says Susannah!)
WILLIAM RUTLEDGE to ELIZABETH PARTRIDGE 23 Feb. 1813, p 220

And, what do you think/know? Ann died in Troup County...Do you suppose she
lived there with James Jr after James Sr died? Has anyone found census
records? Or a will for Ann?

I'll keep going thru Dad's stuff and post what I find of interest...

Thanks Jeanne and Richard for responding to my message. I am new to this group and didn't know if anybody knew anything about Joseph and Nancy. Here is what I have so far. The fist record of Joseph Rutledge is his marrage to Nancy Harden on December 24, 1799 in Columbia County, Georgia. A partial list of the 1805 Tax list James Luke living next to Edmondson & Rutledge in Columbia County, with the Water Course as Greenbriar. The 1806 tax list showes Joseph Rutledge paid $1.00 for slaves and $85.00 for land. It showes his adjoining Luke & Denson in Columbia county. The water way is listed as G. Brier. He is then believed to have moved to Alabama in 1807. He bout land on Febuary 8th, 1818 from Benjamin Murrell of Madison County, Alabama. Two years later in Limestone County, Alabama, he deeded land to John Hardin. On January 2 1821 in Limestone County, Alabama Allison Hodges sold land to Joseph Rutledge. The 1830 Limestone County, Alabama census report shows Joseph Rutledge: Males: 5-10 yr--1; 10-15 yr--2; 15-20 yr--1; 20-30 yr--1; 50-60 yr--1; Females: 15-20 yr--2; 20-30 yr--2; 40-50 yr--1. There is no 1820 census report. From minutes of the New Hope Baptist Church in Monroe County, Mississippi, June 1835, Joseph Rutledge, an ordained deacon, and Nancy, his wife, were received by letter of transfer into the New Hope Baptist Church on the second day of the June 1835 three-day meeting. Joseph died August 13th, 1843 in Monroe County, Mississippi. According to Alfred's family Bible, Joseph was 71 years, 10 months, and 7 days old. The fifth son, Joseph, became administrator of the estate. The appraisal of personal estate of Joseph Rutledge was filed January 2nd, 1844, with a total value of $5295.29.

Thanks, Mike

Don Kelly and Rachael Clemons:

In reading over rutstates/georgia, I found many names which are in my ancestral tree.

I recently made contact with a Rutledge cousin in George who has done extensive work on his Rutledge line. He and his wife were kind enough to provide me with an extensive Rutledge file. I can not give out his e-mail address without permission but I can provide information on a number of individuals or pass along requests.

The names Jeanette Cuthriell and K. D. Rutledge were associated with some of the postings but I did not see an e-mail address for them. Your names were associated with other postings. I'm sending this to you and you can certainly see my e-mail address. I'm relatively new to the rutstates pages so I'm not sure how all this is handled. Can you advise me about what I might post to rutstates/georgia and or /alabama, how Jeanette and K. D. might be contacted, whether I should put my e-mail address on postings to these pages (most people don't seem to do this)?
All of the following are in my ancestral file.
1. John T. Rutledge, married to Sarah L. Davis
2. Thomas F. and Matilda Davis
3. Benjamin Rutledge
4. John T. Rutledge, above, had a second wife, Mahala Cook.
5. James Rutledge and Susannah Shearer
6. Joseph Rutledge, married to Jane Brooker
7. Edward W. Rutledge, son of John T. Rutledge
8. William Owen Rutledge, married to E. Partridge, M. Foster, and E. Robertson
The rutstates/georgia file also contained info, such as children of some of above, which I do not have in my file yet, but will probably incorporate when time permits.

NOTES:

I would like to know if you have anything on Charles RUTLEDGE, b. ca1800, GA. He first married Nancy BARTON, 13Apr1825, in Morgan Co, GA. They had seven children. Charles marr Nancy DEAN, 23Dec1845, in Chambers Co, AL and they had six children. The youngest, Felix, was my grandfather.
I cannot find Charles' parents. Do you have any clues? Thanks, Kermit

NOTES#2

John T and Sarah are buried in that cemetery along with Thomas F Davis and Matilda. Benjamin is their son. Somewhere I have a chart of the cemetery but haven't been able to lay my hands lately. No, I don't know who John T's parents were.

Jeanette Jeanette Cuthriell

My grand-father, Felix RUTLEDGE, was born in Chambers Co AL. Felix had a half-brother named John W. RUTLEDGE who was born c.1827 (probably in Morgan Co GA). I have been unable to trace the half-brothers and half-sisters of Felix. Do you know who your John T.'s parents were?

I looked in the Chambers Co Cemetery book ad there was no John T. or Sarah RUTLEDGE listed. However, there was a Benjamin, born 15 May 1856 and died 27Sep1880. He is in the FREDERICK and DAVIS Cemetery. Where did this family go?

Incidentally, in a publication called "Family Adventures" there is a John T. RUTLEDGE who married Mahala COOK 17 Jun 1869 in Chambers Co AL. Any connection? K D Rutledge

My name is Jerome Woody. My grandmother's maiden name was Rutledge. Her name was Hattie Rutledge. She married a man named Samuel Graham and they had 12 children. I think she was born in Alabama orginally, but lived her adult life in West Point, Ga. Please send me any names or list of Rutledges that may have or still reside near the Alabama-Ga. border. Especially, near Columbus, Ga., West Point, Ga., Phoenix City Alabama.

Thank you, Jerome Woody


Hi all:

I rarely write but do enjoy all the stories and info posted.

I have really hit a brickwall with this ancestor. His name was Samuel Rutledge was born about 1833 in Walker, Georgia. He married Mary Angeline Lawrence (b:1843; d:1923). They had at least three kids - Thomas Jefferson Rutledge, Flora Viola Rutledge and Dora Rutledge. Who were Samuel's parents?????

Ron, could you put my info on the brick wall list? Thanks.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello Holly-

It is still eerie, your Littleberry, Nancy, Parthenia Hardin Rutledge.
Look at the children of our family, #1,2,6,8 especially: Nancy F.,
Littleberry B., Harriette Adeline and Parthena Harden.

Too close to be just coincidence! We now have pictures of Joseph and
Melissa Rutledge, and of couple more of these children. Wanna compare?

Here is the latest on the family group record of our Joseph and Melissa Ann
McCay/McCoy Rutledge. We have been successful at tracking down more of the
children, very little else on Joseph and Melissa.

Am hopeful of making some connections, someday. Your line is most
intriguing. What happened to Parthenia's brother, Joseph?

Hello Rutledges- Have been away for quite awhile, ............

I was looking at the Va marriages that were posted by Ancestry-Com and
found several Rutledges from Lunenburg Va. area, and at this time I am
almost certain that my husband's Rutledge line connects with the Lunenburg
area.

I found several Lunenburg marriages I was hoping someone might
know more about. As it stands with my line I have the following:

Parthenia Hardin Rutledge b. 4/1828 m. Samuel Gibson Snead b. 1827.
Both were born in Virginia. Parthenia's parents were Littleberry
Rutledge and Nancy ???, and I believe Nancy's name was Farmer. There is a
Littleberry Rutledge, born abt 1785, and Nancy Farmer, born abt
1790-1795, married in Lunenburg Co., Va. on 12/30/1812, and with
everything I have been able to find out about that family these should
be her parents.

The Ancestry Com marriages show the following Rutledges that may or may not
connect with Littleberry and Nancy.

Blanks Rutledge m. Polly Clay 10/17/1809 There is another Clay in
my husband's line. (Possibly he is a brother of Littleberry?)
Prudence Rutledge m. Chapman Blackwell 1/25/1809 (Perhaps a sister?)
James Rutledge m. Frances W. Stone 6/18/1845 There are many Stones
in my husband's line as well. This James may possibly be a son or
grandson of Littleberry and Nancy.
Peter Rutledge m. Mary Borum 12/26/1828
Sally Rutledge m. Richard Crafton 10/14/1844
William Rutledge m. Elay Bowen 9/3/1811 (Again possibly a brother?)
William Rutledge m. Sarah Sheffield 9/18/1850

The Clay and Stone lines that are in my husband's line connect with his
Snead line, and as shown above, Parthenia Rutledge married Samuel Gibson
Snead, so I am sure I've all but connected with the family.

Siblings of Parthenia include
James H. b.abt 1814, (possibly the James that married Francis Stone?),
Joseph b. after 1815,
Emily b. 3/13/1825, m. to ? Crumpton,
Nancy b. abt 1827, m. to Mitchell Sullivan,
Martha Mary b. 1828, m. to ? Morgan,
Elizabeth b. 1832, m. to ? Heady,
Sarah A. b. 1834
and Harriet Adeline b. 1837.

Nancy Farmer died in Greenville, South Carolina, so Littleberry probably
had migrated to SC some time before 1837, and Emily and Parthenia probably
with their families both moved to Salem, South Carolina, where they are
buried.

Parthenia and Samuel were married abt 1851 in Salem S.C. My Rutledge
line appears to have left Va area in late 1840's.

If anyone knows anything about the Lunenburg Rutledge line, or if any of
these names ring a bell, I would love to connect with you. I would love to
find a connection with any of these Rutledges, especially Blanks and James
as I am trying to find more about the Snead/Clay marriage and children in
that family.

An unknown Snead b. abt 1770 (male) married an unknown Clay b. abt 1775 and
a daughter Nancy Ann Snead was born 2/26/1793. I would love to find her
siblings to try to connect some Sneads that are floating around with these
Rutledges. They've been floating around for so long, would love to find
something to pull them all in before they drown. Appreciate anything
anyone can offer.

ALSO IN ILLINOIS

-- [ From: Ella Hauser * EMC.Ver #2.5.3 ] --

Frieda, in replying to Carrie regarding the Dudley Rutledge family you list a son Joshua married to Mary ILER. I may be grasping at straws ( like the three little piggies) but I can't get past my brick wall!

My ancestor has the middle name of ILER and her mother was a Rutledge..

The mother, SARAH E. RUTLEDGE, born about 1845. She is my brick wall! Do not know her parents. She is NOT any other Sarah E. Rutledge listed in marriage records in Illinois.

SARAH E. RUTLEDGE, b abt 1845, married Robert S. McIntyre before 1865.

Jessie ILER McIntyre (2nd dau)b. 1867 in Illinois, married Pearl D. Chesher, 1888 in Bloomington, Illinois

SARAH E. RUTLEDGE was Jessie ILER McIntyre's mother. Have no info on Sarah's parents but do know she gave her daughter the middle name of ILER.

A TEASER? ILER name uncommon one. That name did not come from the McIntyre family. Where did Sarah E. Rutledge come up with the ILER name? Was HER mother related to Mary Iler, wife of Joshua Rutledge with both of them marrying Rutledges????

I have more information on some of the brothers and sisters, but very little on John that married Sarah Wilson. I will send it to you if you want it.
Freida


Frieda-
I tried ti e-mail you directly but it would not let me. It said unknown user. I was going through the Rutledge archives and came across a message you wrote. It said that Dudley Rutledge had a son named Dudley. I was wondering if this Dudley, Sr., born ca 1778 in Virginia. If so, my husband is descended through his son, John Oliver Rutledge. I didn't have a Dudley, Jr., I was just wondering. Thank you, Carrie Franks txgal2@aol.com


Most wanted is John Rutledge born 1739 Ireland lived in GA. Last known residence. Also called John James Rutledge. He was all over GA. Either that or boundaries changed all the time. I believe he was in Burke Co in the 1790's. Son is Thomas Rutledge married to Sarah Smith. Thomas was in Augusta Co and Jackson Co. Thomas, Robert, James and Wm were in Henderson Co KY in 1810.

Hi Richard,

For whatever it's worth, Freida and I are both descended from the (2) James b. ca 1745, m. Ann Owen, d. ca 1823 Wilkes Co, GA. We have the children of these 2 and believe "our" James to be son of James and Sarah... Where soes SC come in????? And are you certain of these brothers William and Joseph??? If so, I echo your "WOW"!!! I think Freida and I both have some (little!) info on James and Sarah but this would be a wonderful link if we can prove it! More, more! Cyndi in Baltimore (also Fred in Baltimore)

Hi, Was just reading your message on James when was his brother William born and where did he go,,,our ancestor William Rutledge b.???d. 1804 in Stokes Co. NC, he married Matilda King, wonder if he is one of those siblings you are talking abt, we think he came from SC...Please let me know if this is the same Wm...Thank You Marilyn & Bill Rutledge

While posting names to Most Wanted state by state, I collect a smidgon of
possible connections that must have driven you batty for years. Today I am
posting Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky and Virginia and I ran across the name
William Owen Rutledge several times. We cannot directly place William Owen
Rutledge in our line can we?

Just about everyone on the list know that my ggrandfather was Henry Mentlo
Owen. What few on the list know is that his father was William Owen
Jr....and his grandfather was William Owen.

The Williams by all accounts were around Smith County, Tennessee for fifty
years or so, but no one knows how many times they left or how many times
they returned, or where they were during those non-recorded periods of time.

Can anyone connect William Owen Sr. or Jr. in some way to William Owen
Rutledge. That is a name combination difficult to just make up out of thin
air.

Cousin Don going nuts again.....and not too far to go. Happy fourth.

Don. Happy fourth.
