GOTO.


I recently made contact with a Rutledge researcher that I don't think is on 
the Rutledge mailing list.  The researcher is the wife of Billy Joe  Rutledge
whose parents are George Washington Rutledge and Clara Smith.   This Rutledge
line comes out of Marshall, Lincoln and Giles counties in  Tennessee.  One of
Billy Joe Rutledge's ancestors was Otis Rutledge who  married Mecie Smith. 
Otis was born about 1887 in Tennessee.  He had a  brother named Joe born about
1879 in Tennessee. 
Otis and Mecie Rutledge's children were:
Mildred......b. abt. 1920, Tenn.
J.B. (son)...b. abt. 1922, Tenn.
Ruth....b. abt. 1924, Tenn.
Evelyn....b. abt. 1926, Tenn.
Frances (dau.)....b. abt. 1928, Tenn.

In one of the censuses, there were Cochran and Brinegar families living  next
door to Otis Rutledge.  I have Cochran and Brinegar surnames in  my Rutledge
line.  Can anyone tell me who the parents are of this Otis  Rutledge?  I
believe this Rutledge line has ties to Onawa, Monona county,  Iowa also.
 
Larry,

I beginning to think that Peter Rutledge born 1790 was a nephew of William Rutledge Sr.  We know that he wasn't a son of Johnson & my Peter and here is a note I have for William Jr.

This is from The Heritage of Stokes County North Carolina 1981, Published by the Stokes County Historical Society in Cooperation with Hunter Publishing Company. Jerry Rutledge wrote in article 853, pg 442. " Between 1803 and 1810, all the sons of William Sr., had either died or left the county. In 1806 the count records of Giles Co., Tennessee (now Poluski), William Jr., Johnson, and James appear as newcomers. In 1806, Johnson Rutledge executed a power of attorney while in Giles County, Tennessee for the sale of some property in Stokes County. In 1810 Peter was charged and convicted in criminal court at Germantown for failure to pay a debt. He was imprisoned for some period of time. Peter made an application for release from jail as a pauper. He was released and apparently left the county"

  David,

  Thanks for the update.  Good to hear from you again.

  I looked at Barbara's info and she replied back to a question I had.  She
  builds an excellent case for your Peter, son of William Sr., being born
  much earlier. 

  Kirk and Wendy's Peter, born ca 1790 must have been a grandson, or Nephew
  of William Sr. The DNA sayes he is part of the same line, but not when.

  The DNA is very stable too.  I haven't tried yet to count the number of
  transmission events between your and my tests,  but some of the others in
  Group 1 have had mutations in as little as 6 events.

  Thanks to everyone who gave me updated information.

   Hi Lynda, Larry,
  
   I think the case is pretty good for William Rutledge, the daughter of

   Peter.  There is a perfect DNA match between Larry (#368), who is
   descended from William Rutledge, Sr., and me (#34723).  I am descended
   from William Rutledge.  In addition to the DNA, there are circumstantial

   I agree with Lynda that the Peter Rutledge who is the ancestor of
   Kirk Rutledge #24555, was probably born too late (~1790) to be the
   son of Matilda King, who apparently had her first son, Johnson,

Hi Jim and List,  This Henry could connect to my William RUTLEDGE b. TN 1795
m probably Martha W. Moody in Maury Co. TN 23 Dec 1820.  He was in IN by 1823
when his first proven daughter was born and in Harrison Co. by the 1830
census.  Before the 1830 census Martha had apparently died as there was no female in
the household old enough to have had the children as listed.  In the next
year or so he appears to be in Jenning/Jefferson Co. where he m second Diantha
Eastman Trindell a widow.  Before 1848 he is in Buchanan Co. MO where another
son was born.  I can go into this bunch in more detail if anyone thinks they fit
in.  Ginny in Wyoming

 


The Lorenzo Dow Rutledge (b.1813 VA- then to TN) line also seems to  have
daughtered out.  My branch started with his daughter, Elizabeth Jane  Rutledge
Dutton Baugher, (a Cilvil War widow), so I have no hope of  finding DNA there. 
No other living male Rutledge cousins have shown up so  far either.
 
It is so frustrating to be  willing to participate in the DNA tests  and have
the wrong sex DNA!  That leaves my Lorenzo Dow line still adrift  with a
brickwall before Lorenzo Dow Rutledge b.1813 and still not knowing  if we are tied
to the other supposed children of the mysterious Jackson  Middleton Rutledge.
 
So happy for you Jan, to have found your Rutledge line finally.
 
Peter, as the daughter-in-law of an adoptee, for health reasons I would 
suggest you get at least the medical info & ancestry about your birth  parents. 
My mother in law refuses now when it is available in Ohio, and I  would kill
for the med. info on my husband and kids.  How wonderful that  you are
interested in Rutledge genealogy anyway- welcome..

Dear Don
 
I'm still hoping to find further info about my great grandfather Crockett Rutledge Millard' s mother Sallie. Recently, I noticed that William R(obert) Rutledge (b. 6-12-1801, d. 7-12-1861) is also buried in Weaver's Cemetery in Sullivan County, TN, where C.R. Millard's mother Sallie is buried. William is the son of Robert Rutledge (b. 10-13-1764, d. 9-16-1853) and Catherine Crockett (b. 11-18-1771, d. 1839). Robert and Catherine had several children born in Sullivan, TN between 1806 and 1813. If Robert and Catherine had a daughter Sallie, then the time, place, and names would be just right for that daughter to be C.R. Millard's mother. Unfortunately, there is no Rutledge daughter Sallie (born 12-20-1809) that I could find. On the other hand, Robert and Catherine's child #6 was born in Sept 1808 and child #7 was born in 1813, leaving a feasible window of time for a child to be born 12-20-1809. Does anyone have info on the family of Robert Rutledge and Catherine Crockett that might shed some light one way or the other?
 
Thanks very much!
 
Best regards,

In 1835 your guy is a couple of years younger than mine, but mine was born 1833 in NE Tennessee.
Still could be related though because it seems most Rutledges in Tennessee came form the Carolinas or Virginia. Some later came from Maryland.

Dear Rutledges,
 
I'm trying to trace my great grandfather, Crockett Rutledge Millard, born Nov 15, 1835 in Sullivan County, TN to Thomas Millard (b. Dec 5, 1806 in Sullivan, d. Apr 21, 1893) and Sarah (Sallie) J. (I.?) Crockett (b. Dec 20, 1809 in Sullivan, d. Jan 22, 1844 in Sullivan).
 
Several standard genealogy resources list Sarah as the daughter of William Crockett (b. 1748, Frederick County, VA, son of David Crockett the Elder) and Catherine Hawkins (b. about 1750). Two things seem unlikely about this attribution: Catherine would have been in her late 50's when Sarah was born; and there don't appear to be any Rutledges in the nearby Hawkins or Crockett lines.
 
It seems more likely that Sarah Crockett's parents are not those in the standard sources, but that Sarah's father was a different Crockett and Sarah's mother was a Rutledge born between 1770 and 1790, given Sarah's birth year and the name Crockett Rutledge Millard.
 
I haven't found any confirming information, so this is only speculation. Does anyone have any further relevant info?
 
Many thanks!
 
Hal White
 
P.S. Crockett Rutledge Millard had two sisters, Cordelia Evaline Millard (b. 1837, d. 1904) and Ledemia Caroline Millard (b. 1840, d. 1915).

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

I would like to hear from anyone researching any
Rutledge family in the Old Tazewell, TN area. My
husband's ancestors lived there during the Civil War.
I have no names and have no living family member who
can help me.

I know his grandfather Rutledge served in the Civil
War, likely as a Confederate soldier. His rifle was
engraved "Tower of London," which suggests gun runners
were successful in getting it through the northern
blockade of a southern port. I know he was last
stationed along the Kentucky River at Camp Nelson in
Garrard County.

I see amost no Rutledge postings from TN. Anyone know
present day county for Old Tazewell area?

Someone sent me the marriage information on a James Rutledge and a Namcy

I have a mystery James and John Rutledge (brothers) who I am trying to locate
their parents and other siblings. My James and John appear to have been born
in Tn.

My question is this..............Is anyone here related to this James
Rutledge and Nancy Armstrong. If yes, do you show them with children named James and
John? My James was born in 1813 and John much later.

Since James and Nancy were married in 1811 and my James was born 1813, this
would be about the correct dates.

Thanks so much,

This Rutledge family isn't from Tennessee.  They are from Charlotte Co., VA.
They do carry many of the same names of later generations in Tennessee (i.e.
David, Synthia).  I believe that David Rutledge's brother may be John who
went to Tennessee in early 1800's.  Possibly the same John that murdered
William Loggins, Jr. in Tennessee.  John was married to Sally Loggins in
1794 in Charlotte County, VA.  From internet info. Sally and William were
probally cousins.

I really wish I could find something to connect the Charlotte Co., VA and
the Tennessee Rutledges.

Wonder if this would help with the Tennessee Rutledge in Bedford County, it 
seems
that at one time I believe Bedford could have been part of Davidson Co. or 
vice versa.

The IN Rutledge family is very interesting.  My William b 1795 (1850 census
and prior census agree) I understood in TN.  However I find him in Jennings Co.
IN in 1820 and then in 1830 in Harrison Co. IN.  He is in Buchanan Co. MO
Rush Twp. for the 1850 census having with him children born in IN and MO.  I
believe he married Diantha Trindell in Jennings Co she was a widow maiden name I
believe was Eastman.  I later find no wife with Wm in MO though he had a son in
1846-7 there so I assume she died before the census of 1850.  The two
youngest sons are found with E. D. and Buerll Eastman in TX in 1860.  I have done
this off the top of my head but if there is a chance there is a connection I will
be happy to check dates etc. and post more completely.  Ginny in Wyoming

 


Hello Rutledge Readers,
I actually posted this Message back in 2005 and I am still searching for these same Rutledge descendants. However, I wanted to re-post my message because I am changing my email address and wanted to let others know what my new email address will be in case they have information concerning my Rutledge's. So after 02/19/2006, please email me at :

williamhale@verizon.net

Thanks everyone, William Hale    


I found my gr-gr-grandfather Caleb W. Rutledge was living in McMinn
county,TN on the 1850 and 1860 census with wife Eliza, their children -
Elizabeth, William and Thomas. I found where he had married Eliza Ann Berry
in Claiborne County,TN in the 1840's. I also have information that he was
most likely born in Virginia about 1825. I was never able to find this
family on any kind of 1870 census.

The next time I picked up Caleb or C.W. Rutledge was on the 1880 Rockcastle
County,KY census. However, I believe that Caleb and wife moved back to
Claiborne County,TN area by the 1890's and that they must have died there
sometime in the 1890's.

Their children Elizabeth, William, Thomas, and Lula would marry and stay in
the Rockcastle, Laurel and Bell county area of Kentucky. I believe oldest
daughter Elizabeth Rutledge married William Barger and can be found on the
1880 Rockcastle county,KY census. William and his family (second wife) can
be found on the 1880 Rockcastle Co.,KY census and then again on the 1900
Laurel Co., KY census. Thomas and wife Eva can also be found on the 1900
Laurel Co,KY census. Youngest daughter Lula born about 1864 and married in
1884 can also be found in Laurel Cop., KY 1900 census.

From William's 1880 Rockcastle CO.,KY census you'll see he has a son named
Charles. If you now jump to the 1910 Bell County,KY census you'll see
Charles or Charley is married and has three kids (it says 2 kids, but 3 are
listed). Son Oscar E. is one of these children.

Next I was able to get a 1960 obituary on Oscar E. Rutledge who was one of
the 3 kids from the 1910 Bell Co., KY census :

Oscar E. Rutledge's obituary appeared on

Wednesday, June 22, 1960, edition of the Louisville,Kentucky
Courier-Journal, on

page 12. It read:



"Oscar E. Rutledge, 51, a foreman for the Raymond Krauth sheet-metal firm

at Baxter and Rogers, suffered a heart attack there Tuesday morning and

was dead on arrival at a hospital. Rutledge, 2125 Maple, had been ill

since October. Survivors are his wife, the former Virginia Gordon; two

sisters, Mrs. Cleo Tyrell, Mitchell, Kentucky, and Mrs. Leona Brooks,

Cincinnati, and a brother, Charles Rutledge, Albuquerque, New Mexico.

The body will be at Rafterman's, 2114 West Market, after 2 pm Wednesday."





I tried looking up email address and phones numbers.Yes, I made some
telephone calls to these area's in hope's of reaching his sibling's
family's. But no luck.

So that's where I'm at on my Rutledge's. I do know where some of them were
as late as the 1960's, but have not been able to pick up their trail from
there.

But I know that some of their decendants have to be out there somewhere and that is why I am posting this information.


William

(Quote:)
On May 29, 1865, President Andrew Johnson issued a proclamation granting
amnesty to all persons who participated either directly or indirectly in
the recent rebellion. All rights and property, except for slaves, were
to be restored upon taking the oath to support and defend the
Constitution of the United States of America.

There were 14 classes of people who were excluded from the Amnesty
Proclamation. In order to obtain a pardon, these people had to formally
request a pardon from the President.

Index to Pardon Petitions and
Related Papers Submitted in Response to President Andrew Johnson's
Amnesty Proclamations of May 29, 1865, ("Amnesty Papers") Extracted from
National Archives Microfilm M1003 - Roll 50 TENNESSEE

Name: Arthur M. Rutledge
County: Franklin
Filed: 15 July 1865
Pardoned: 18 Sept 1865
Applied: 7 July 1865
Oath of Allegiance Card Included: Yes
***Additional Information: Graduated from West Point in 1837

Under the new proclamation, 14 classes of persons were excepted from the
general amnesty. Johnson incorporated Lincoln's seven exceptions with a
few alterations and added the following:
**1) individuals who had absented themselves from the United States in
order to aid in the rebellion,
**2) graduates of West Point or Annapolis who served as Confederate
officers,
**3) ex-Confederate governors,
**4) person who left homes in territory under U. S. jurisdiction for
purposes of aiding the rebellion,
**5) persons who engaged in destruction of commerce on the high seas or
in raids from Canada,
**6) voluntary participants in the rebellion who had property valued at
more than $20,000, and
**7) persons who had broken the oath taken under the provisions of the
proclamation of December 8, 1863.
Johnson indicated he did not wish to deny pardon to many in
the excepted classes, but he "intended they should sue for pardon, and
so realize the enormity of their crime." There were, however, motives

 


No success stories here yet. I did most of all of my postings on my
Rutledge's-Lrootsweb.com back in May of this year, but I have not been
contacted by any Rutledge family members. Here's a little information from
those posting and what I already knew and some new information that I've
learned since then.

I found my gr-gr-grandfather Caleb W. Rutledge was living in McMinn
county,TN on the 1850 and 1860 census with wife Eliza, their children -
Elizabeth, William and Thomas. I found where he had married Eliza Ann Berry
in Claiborne County,TN in the 1840's. I also have information that he was

Claiborne County,TN area by the 1890's and that they must have died there
sometime in the 1890's.

Their children Elizabeth, William, Thomas, and Lula would marry and stay in
the Rockcastle, Laurel and Bell county area of Kentucky. I believe oldest
daughter Elizabeth Rutledge married William Barger and can be found on the
1880 Rockcastle county,KY census. William and his family (second wife) can
be found on the 1880 Rockcastle Co.,KY census and then again on the 1900
Laurel Co., KY census. Thomas and wife Eva can also be found on the 1900
Laurel Co,KY census. Youngest daughter Lula born about 1864 and married in
1884 can also be found in Laurel Cop., KY 1900 census.

From William's 1880 Rockcastle CO.,KY census you'll see has a son named
Charles. If you now jump to the 1910 Bell County,KY census you'll see
Charles or Charley is married and has three kids (it says 2 kids, but 3 are
listed).

NOTE FROM ADMIN: We believe Emanuel was a brother of Stephen's dad.

GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT FOUNDING OF THE STATE:


Extracted from "The Handy Book":

TENNESSEE - State 1796 (16th)

North Carolina formally annexed Tennessee in 1776, as Washington County
(which covered the entire present state)

In 1784, North Carolina ceded Tennessee to the United States.  When the
federal government refused to acknowledge the cession, the people of
Tennessee organized the State of Franklin.  This lasted 4 years and
North Carolina regained control of the area again in 1789.

North Carolina again ceded the area to the U. S. in 1789, which formed
the Southwest Territory in 1790.

Tennessee became a state in 1796.

Other Notes:
Some early counties formed from Washington County:  Sullivan, 1779;
Davidson & Greene, 1783;  Carter, 1796.

Wayne County, TN was created in 1785 under the State of Franklin, and
included  present Carter County and part of Johnson County.  Wayne
County was abolished in 1788.

In 1788, there was a county called Tennessee.  The county surrendered
it's name when Tennessee became a state in 1796.  Montgomery and
Robertson counties were formed from Tennessee County in 1796.

Ref:  Handy Book for Genealogists


Hi Jim and List,  This Henry could connect to my William RUTLEDGE b. TN 1795
m probably Martha W. Moody in Maury Co. TN 23 Dec 1820.  He was in IN by 1823
when his first proven daughter was born and in Harrison Co. by the 1830
census.  Before the 1830 census Martha had apparently died as there was no female in
the household old enough to have had the children as listed.  In the next
year or so he appears to be in Jenning/Jefferson Co. where he m second Diantha
Eastman Trindell a widow.  Before 1848 he is in Buchanan Co. MO where another
son was born.  I can go into this bunch in more detail if anyone thinks they fit
in.  Ginny in Wyoming


Dear Don,
 
Thanks very much for your prompt reply!
 
I have just found some further info that may clarify matters, or at least avoid futher confusion. This is that the mother of Crockett Rutledge Millard was Sallie Crockett (first wife of Thomas Millard), not Sarah J. Thomas Millard remarried to Sarah J. (last name unknown b. 1829 - d.1879) after Sallie passed on in 1844. So my suspected Rutledge connection is through Sallie Crockett.
 
This info comes from Weaver's cemetery in Sullivan County, TN, resting place of Thomas Millard and both Sallie Crockett and second wife Sarah J. There are also quite a few Rutledges to found:

Thanks again!
 
Best regards,

Thanks for contributing.
Try this one from Virginia.
I hope it helps.
In 1835 your guy is a couple of years younger than mine, but mine was born 1833 in NE Tennessee.
Still could be related though because it seems most Rutledges in Tennessee came form the Carolinas or Virginia. Some later came from Maryland.

Subject: Does anyone have info on crockett rutledge millard?

 
Dear Rutledges,
 
I'm trying to trace my great grandfather, Crockett Rutledge Millard, born Nov 15, 1835 in Sullivan County, TN to Thomas Millard (b. Dec 5, 1806 in Sullivan, d. Apr 21, 1893) and Sarah (Sallie) J. (I.?) Crockett (b. Dec 20, 1809 in Sullivan, d. Jan 22, 1844 in Sullivan).
 
Several standard genealogy resources list Sarah as the daughter of William Crockett (b. 1748, Frederick County, VA, son of David Crockett the Elder) and Catherine Hawkins (b. about 1750). Two things seem unlikely about this attribution: Catherine would have been in her late 50's when Sarah was born; and there don't appear to be any Rutledges in the nearby Hawkins or Crockett lines.
 
It seems more likely that Sarah Crockett's parents are not those in the standard sources, but that Sarah's father was a different Crockett and Sarah's mother was a Rutledge born between 1770 and 1790, given Sarah's birth year and the name Crockett Rutledge Millard.
 
I haven't found any confirming information, so this is only speculation. Does anyone have any futher relevant info?
 
Many thanks!
 
Hal White
 
P.S. Crockett Rutledge Millard had two sisters, Cordelia Evaline Millard (b. 1837, d. 1904) and Ledemia Caroline Millard (b. 1840, d. 1915).

My name is Donald R. Rutledge descended from Emanuel (about 1801).

I have run across reference to the subject book. I would like to check
the book but do not know where to find it. Would it be in a library and
if so maybe someone will be able to tell me where.
I live in Kingsport, Sullivan Co, Tn.
For those who may not know Sullivan Co adjoins Hawkins Co Tn, Greene
Co Tn Wasnington Co Tn. and Carter Co Tn. as Well as Scott Co Va.
and Washington Co Va.

Being in the Northeast corner of Tennesssee we are also close to the
state of North Carolina.

With regard to the book I saw it has information on " Jackson
Middleton Rutledge".

Any information will be appreciated.

lived, and until recently was still in the hands of the family. I believe
it has now passed out of family hands.
 

Flagg Springs was divided by Edward Rutledge between his two sons, James and
George, George's part of it remaining under the old name, the other becoming
known as Black Oak Spring. I don't know about Flagg Springs, but Black Oak
Spring is now in the hands of a Mehler family. Someone on this list has been in
touch with the Mehlers, who say they still have some of the original documents
relating to the Rutledges. The original house still stands. It's near New Hope,
Virginia, on Route 616.

George died in 1823. His sister was the Sarah Rutledge who married George
McNeely. I understand the entire family -- or a major part of it -- left Augusta
Co. around 1835 and settled in Fulton County, IL.

Any information on my ancestor Nelson Rutledge, listed in the 1860 census of Claiborne, TN as "A. N. Rutledge, M, 48" would be appreciated.

He was married to Rosanna(h) Counts, born about 1835, with quite a few children including my ancestor Ann Rutledge, listed as "Elizabeth, F, 6" in the census. She was born in 1854.

I am particularly interested in first name, exact birth and death dates, other marriages (my records indicate he may have been married both before and after this marriage), and parents. Family tradition is that he was descended from the "founding father" Rutledges but I have found no evidence to substantiate this claim.

Kate, I got most of my information on Rutledge/McKinney from Lynn
Dielman and Wilma McKinney.  Lynn said they shared much info.  Maybe
you can touch bases with them.  I think Lynn's email is: 
lynnd@adnc.com     and I believe Wilma's is:   <SIVEDETTE@aol.com
It seems to me someone I was in contact with had an Abraham McKinney in
the ancestry.  Good luck!

 Hi Kermit,
 I was able to take a look at the header page on ancestry.com for
 the Rutledge's in Claiborne County,TN in 1830 and 1840. But I don't

 have  a paid subscription to that site so I couldn't take a look at

 the  actual census records. So I wasn't able to make any kind of
 connection that my Caleb would be related to these Rutledge's.
 However, I'm betting that if Caleb got married in Claiborne in the

 early 1840's that he would be related to some of the other
 Rutledge's  that lived there and showed up on the 1840 census. It
 sounds like you  might be on to something with the Caleb Rutledge
 who lived in Green  County,TN in 1840. And then with a name like
 Caleb Rutledge, he could  have very well been related to my Caleb
 Rutledge. I also saw some of  those Ratleges who lived in McMinn
 County in 1850 and 1860. And I  believe you may be correct when you

 say they ended up spelling / or  leaving their name as Ratlege and
 not Rutledge. I believe that even  today, that some of them
 probably continue to spell their name as  Ratledge. We're they
 related ? The name sure sounds and looks to much  alike for it to
 be a just a coincidence, for them not to have been  related. But I
 do know that mine never changed the spelling of their  name from
 1850 and on. My Caleb Rutledge's spelled their name as  Rutledge.
 Now I can only take a guess as to when Caleb died. However,  if I
 were to take a educated guess based upon the information that I
 have, I would say it was between 1890 and 1900. For one thing,  I'm

  pretty sure that I have some information around here somewhere
 that  says that Caleb filed his civil war papers in Kentucky in
 1890.
 Thanks,Bill

 Bill, since Caleb married in Claiborne County, have you looked at
 the
 Rutledges who were there in 1830-1840-1850? According to the
 indexes,
 there were one or two families each census year.  I only found the
 index, not the transcriptions, or I would have looked, myself.
 And  if I
 remember correctly,  there were a considerable number of Hursts.

 There is a Caleb Rutledge on the 1840 Greene County, TN census.
 Too old
 to be your Caleb, but on the other hand, that is not exactly a
 common
 given name among Rutledges, so maybe something to do with a
 naming-pattern?  Also, a Benjamin Rutledge is on this census, next

 door
 to a Stephen Massey, and someone on this list has ancestors among
 those
 two families, I believe.  (Benjamin Rutledge married Mary "Polly"
 Massey).

 All those Ratlage/Ratledge/Ratlege families in McMinn County have
 me
 wondering if they were indeed Rutledges, or if they should be
 considered
 an entirely different surname.  Ordinarily, I would have suspected
 enumerator misspellings, except cemetery records also reflect the

 Any idea where Caleb died?  Do you know if they remained in KY,

Hi Cheryl and Larry,
I have Rutledge in MO but they arived earllier.  Census information puts them
in Buchanan Co. MO in Rush Township by 1850 and further checking shows sons
born in 46 and 48  Mine were from TN according to earlier census info.  William
the father says he was born in TN in 1795.  His older children all show IL as
a birthplace so although family lore says that William's family came from the
Carolina's I sure have no proof.  It does however look like the younger sons
went to TX and are found in or near Bellville.  So my question is are you an
old line Texan Larry or just a recient homesteader?  Ginny in Wyoming

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for Rutledge family members whose ancestors would have lived in McMinn County, Tennessee in 1850 and 1860 and then in Rockcastle County, Kentucky in 1880. To be more specific, I am looking for any of the descendants of the Caleb Rutledge family. This is how they looked on the 1850 and 1860 McMinn County,Tennessee census :


1850 census for McMinn County, Tennessee
#293

Caleb Ratledge 24
Eliza 24  (maiden name may have been Berry)
Elizabeth 5,
Wm. 4,
Thos. 1
Delilah Hurst 66  (unsure how or if she relates to the family)
 

1860 census for McMinn County, Tennessee
55-232

C.W. Rutlege, 35
Eliza A., 35  (maiden name may have been Berry)
Elizabeth ,14
William J., 13
Thomas L., 10
Sarah A., 3

I could not find this family on any kind of 1870 census. However, I am sure that I found them on a 1880 census in Rockcastle County,Kentucky :

1880 Rockcastle County Kentucky Census

CW Rutledge 56    
Eliza Rutledge 54  (maiden name may have been Berry) 
Lula Rutledge age 15



The Lula Rutledge on this 1880 Rockcastle County,Kentucky census is my great-grandmother.

It has been passed down thru the generations that my Rutledge's were directly related to The Edward Rutledge Family. Edward Rutledge was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence.

Are there any Edward Rutledge family members out there who can confirm that this Caleb or C.W. Rutledge living in the McMinn County in 1850 and 1860, was a part of the their Edward Rutledge family ? Or that Caleb even belonged to their family at all ?

Now I know that there may not be anything to this story about a connection to the Edward Rutledge family. But this story has been passed down for many years and If there any members of the Edward Rutledge out there who is reading this and knows the answers to this question, I would like to hear from you.   

I would also like to hear from any Rutledge Descendants out there who descend from C.W. Rutledge and Eliza (Berry?) Rutledge. So if you're out there, please also email me.

Best regards, Bill Hale     

 


Guess I should have said Wm is not in MO in the 1860 census and we do find
his kids from KS to TX in that year.  Wm. would have been 65 so he may have
died.  I do know he was not with his son Loyd Amos Rutledge in Doniphan Co.KS and
I am looking for the rest of the kids.  The only mg I have for his daughters
is for Elizabeth.  Caroline should have married soon after 1850.   Thanks so
very much.  Ginny

Hawkins County Tennessee

Date Published: January 31, 2005
Volunteer archivists on treasure hunt through Hawkins County Courthouse
Author: JEFF BOBO

ROGERSVILLE - They say that one man's junk is another man's treasure.

In Rogersville, there's a treasure hunt going on every day for a group of volunteers who are sifting through the tons of documents dating back into the 1700s which until now have been piled like junk in no particular order in the basement of the 169-year-old Hawkins County Courthouse.

The Hawkins County Archival Project has been under way for about three weeks since moving into the former state employment office location at 955 E. McKinney Ave., which is owned by the county.

About 30 volunteers sort through the endless boxes of documents as their schedule permits.

On Monday, there were about eight people participating in the painstaking process, which involves reading the mostly handwritten records, cleaning the aging paper, recording it by year, and then recording it again by alphabetical order of the principal parties involved.

It may sound like tedious work, but volunteers were having a ball Monday, as every new document told a long forgotten tale of what life was like in Hawkins County 150 years ago.

For example, volunteer Martha Lane ran across a series of circuit court records relating to a lawsuit over "an iron gray mare" that was taken by Confederate soldiers from a woman named Matilda Shanks in 1864 and "allegedly" wound up in the possession of a fellow named Thomas Gibson several years after the Civil War ended.

The court battle must have lasted a long time, because Lane found page after page of subpoenas, motions and affidavits supporting Shanks' claim that the mare was taken illegally and Gibson's contention that he acquired the mare legally. Records indicate it was difficult to prove that Gibson's iron gray mare was the same one taken from Shanks years earlier by the Confederate soldiers.

Lane hadn't come across a court decision in the case by midday Monday. But, judging by the stack of briefs in the case, she joked that she'd be surprised if the mare hadn't died of old age by the time the case was settled.

Another interesting find Monday involved a petition filed in October 1861 on behalf of a 47-year-old freed former slave named Leland Breeden seeking to "relinquish his free status" and "enter back into servitude" of a man named W.C. Kyle. The petition doesn't offer any reason why Breeden would make such a request, but he sets his own value at $450. The petition was denied by the court.

Volunteers were also interested to find another case Monday involving a free black man named Ambrose Hopkins who was ordered by the circuit court in 1858 to leave Hawkins County and the state and never return because he had illegally voted in a Hawkins County election held in 1845. Apparently Hopkins didn't obey the court order, because Hawkins County Archivist Jack Goins found another document from 1863 in which Ambrose's wife was suing him for divorce.

The group working Monday also had a laugh over an 1850 court document found by Lane where a man accused of stealing and killing 10 chickens - valued at a total of $1 at the time, according to the records - was fined $1,000 by the court. Lane speculated that $1,000 in 1850 must have been more like $100,000 in modern value, making those 10 chickens among the most expensive in history.

Volunteer Albert Parker found a 1860 bank note from the Branch Bank of Tennessee at Rogersville, which he found interesting considering the bank folded during the Great Depression.

His wife, Noreeda Parker, came across some promissory notes from 1866 sealed with 10 cent and 25 cent George Washington stamps that would probably make any stamp collector's mouth water.

There is evidence, however, that stamp collectors have already raided the courthouse basement at some point, as Noreeda Parker also found an envelope from the same era with the section where the stamp would be neatly cut out.

The Hawkins County Commission voted late last year to provide the McKinney Avenue location to the county archivists after the state employment office announced it was moving to another location in Rogersville at the first of the year. A permanent archive location was one of the requirements for a $5,000 state grant awarded to the county last year to help pay for acid-free storage folders, cleaning materials and containers for the old documents.

Goins, who was appointed county archivist by County Mayor Crockett Lee, said Monday his volunteers have made a slight dent in the tons of documents stored in the courthouse basement. He estimated that at the group's current pace it will take about two years to sort through everything, index it all in a computer, and file it by year and name.

Records will also be photographed and stored on microfilm, with a copy to be sent to Nashville for storage in state archives.

By the time they've completed the job, Goins anticipates the McKinney Avenue location will have become a popular tourist attraction in Rogersville for genealogy and history buffs.

"We've got documents dating back to 1795, and we're going to archive everything up to 1950," Goins said. "We're trying to do everything in 10-year increments except for 1795 to 1810, which is more rare, so we'll do that batch in 15. There's a lot of history in these old boxes, and right now we've really barely scratched the surface.

"By the time we're done, you can give us a name and we ought to be able to point out for you every document here that contains that name. "

There will be finds with significant historic value above chicken thievery, Goins said, such as the original Tennessee land grants to Joseph Rogers, the founder of Rogersville, dating back into the 1790s which have already been discovered.

In the first three weeks of the project, however, they've mainly been going through circuit court records from the mid-1800s, and most of the finds so far are generally of a more personal nature.

For example, Goins was surprised to find a record of one of his ancestors, his great-grandfather's brother's son, John Minor Jr., who was charged with using profanity in a public assembly in the 1850s. More surprising was the fact that the warrant quoted what Minor was accused of saying, which was shocking even by modern-day standards.

"That went to circuit court, so it must have been a pretty serious crime," Goins said. "I don't know what they fined him because we haven't gotten that far yet. I found another one the other day for the same charge against the brother to my great-great-grandfather for interrupting a church service with profanity, and what he said was even worse."

Goins was quick to point out that he didn't take after that branch of his family tree, at least as far as use of language is concerned.

This link to Rutledge cemetery at Bethany Cemetery in Shelby County Tennessee. We place some of our group in Shelby County, so these could be related. Let's try to post more cemeteries for Tennessee. Just send them here. Located at lat N350649, Long W0894139; USGS 7.5 map says N35 W89 as an approximate location. That is near the town of Cordova.


Please, please keep us informed.  Jackson Middleton is supposedly the father
of Thomas Rutledge who is my 4th great grandfather.  I would love to see
this validated!

This is some information I have received over the years for the families of
John and Wilson.
Mike Rutledge, Boaz AL

----------------------------------------

WILSON (W.A.) RUTLEDGE
Born ca 1803) in NC
Died 21 Feb. 1863 of typhoid fever while
 A POW-CSA, Camp Douglas, IL.

MARRIED TWICE:
(1) md ca 1829 possibly in Monroe Co. TN. She has not been identified; no
marriage record found.
ISSUE: 3, possibly 4, sons, and 1 daughter.

2) md 1840 (per 1850 census taker), to a woman named Jane who possibly was
Jane Nations. A Pate descendant said she was ' referred to as "Grandma
Nations Rutledge" by older members of the family which would indicate that
she was not their grandmother by blood.
ISSUE: 2, possibly 3, sons and 3 daughters.
Again, no marriage record has been found. Early Monroe Co. TN and Cherokee
Co. AL are "burned" counties.

WILSON RUTLEDGE owned 320 acres in Independence Co. AR in 1859- BY 1860
census he was in Saline Co. AR. After the start of the Civil
War he joined. a CSA unit in Saline Co. where he is shown on the roster of
Co. B, Arkansas 1st (Crawford's) Cavalry as Wilson Rutledge, Sgt. The
original CSA record is filed as "W.A. Rudley." He was taken prisoner on 11
Jan. 1863 at Arkansas Post, AR and imprisoned at
Camp Douglas, IL where he died of typhoid fever on 21 Feb. 1863- There were
no muster roll cards dated prior to his capture so the date of enlistment is
unknown.  (Buried as W.A. Rudley in Oak Woods Cem. Chicago IL, Confederate
monument)
If JANE RUTLEDGE, wife #2, followed an old custom, then her first daughter,
Martha, may have been named for the deceased wife. HUGH RUTLEDGE named a
daughter MARTHA LUCINDA. Could this have been for his mother and sister?

There are many JOHN RUTLEDGE descendants in Independence Co. AR and the
chronicler of this line shows my (Lucinda) Jane Rutledge as his daughter
even though she is not listed in the family Bible. My research has proved
this to be incorrect. John Rutledge possibly was her uncle. Jane may have
made her home with this family between the 1850 census and, her marriage to
Tom Pate in 1859-

WILSON RUTLEDGE'S SON, JAMES CALVIN, known as CALVIN, was born ca 1840; the
year Wilson married his second wife. The fact that Calvin was enumerated
with Tom and Jane R. Pate in the 1860 Indep Co. AR census makes me wonder
whether he was a son by the first wife. However, in 1870 he is living with
his family adjacent to Ja(i)ne Rutledge and her children in Jefferson Co.
AR.  Calvin Rutledge also served in the CSA but in a different outfit than
Wilson.

As a side note, Columbus (Lum) Knox Polk Rutledge, son of the above John
Rutledge and Rebecca Parsons, married Mollie Pate, sister to my Grandfather
Tom Pate. One of John's sons, G.C. (Gilbert Calloway Lorenzo Huston
Rutledge) bears a striking resemblance to a photo of Hugh Rutledge.  Oh,
that other mothers were as careful in recording their children's full names
as was Rebecca!

As compiled October 1994 by Jimmie Jean Pate Bowman, granddaughter of Thomas
H. Pate and Lucinda Jane Rutledge.

? This is the John Rutledge of Independence CO. AR.  If Lucinda Jane
Rutledge had been his daughter she should have been included at about age 11
on this census.
? On the 1840 census above, the elder James Rutledge is undoubtedly the
James of the 1830 Monroe CO. TN census which leads to speculation that he
was the father of  :

Kathye,

Good to hear from you.  Pardon for my posting on the list but what email do
I use for you?  I will send the Roark Massacre information to you.  I appear
to be mission part 4. (there are 4 parts)  However, our connection is on
part 3.

I had never heard about John being born in Alabama, interesting.  (I'll
update my record on this) Wonder what took them there?  I do know why my
grandfather was born in Texarkana, AR.  According to Aunt Mildred, John &
Elizabeth went to Texas to buy cattle and had to stop for the event!

Dad wants to know which of Tom's kids you are descended from.  He knew some
of them when he was young.

I plan to get a copy of John B.'s obituary.  I wish I knew when Elizabeth
died.  My guess is the mid to late 1920's considering my dad saw her when he
was little and she was getting up in years then.  Would you like a jpeg of
the photo with Elizabeth?  I have sent one to Kay Martin and also to John
Rutledge for the webpage.

I contacted East TN Roots to post about Thomas Rutledge (Stephen's father)
They will send me what info they have on Pearl.  She died 5 months ago but
they have info on her daughter.  I would love to get copies of the photo's
of Stephen & Mary Massey.  The original diary (typewritten, the original
original was destroyed in a flood) is in the TN State archives under Johnie
Reb.

I knew Mary Massey was part Cherokee.  I don't know the percentage.  Kay
said you had a photo of her mother.  Could you send me a jpeg or send a copy
to the website?

I think the earlied date for John's death is likely correct.  Simply because
dad's dad went to work at the age of eight which would be  1889 or 1893.
(Dad insists 1885, records say 1882  My half sister Mary is going to check
his tombstone and burial records and see what they say).

This is long, and I apologize to list for running off at the mouth but there
is so much to share and many fascinating stories with family.

Kathye as soon as I know what email to use I will forward stuff about the
Roark massacre.  It is quite an interesting read.

Good to hear from you,

Julie

Julie,

Thank you for the information.  I would really like to hear the story of
how Elizabeth Roark's great-grandmother was killed by Indians.  Which
grandmother was that?  Did you know her uncle married an Indian?

I have to apologize for the problem with your grandfather's wife's name.
I
took the information verbally and I guess I got confused with too many
"hers" and "hims" and "hes" and "shes."  I've since changed it in my
records, but of course everyone who has an old copy of my line will have
it
wrong as well.

I am correcting the things I had wrong that you've supplied sources for,
but there are important differences you should know about as well.

1.      Although most of the family information says that John B. Rutledge
was born in Lawrence Co., TN, that is not what is reported on the 1860
census.  On that census it gives his place of birth as Alabama.  I have a
copy or two that I made straight from the microfilm and it clearly is
AL.  The other children are born in TN, as are Mary and Stephen.

2.      John's death date is the same as what I have, and it came from
Pearl Rutledge, who says she got it from Stephen's obituary.  However,
there is an article in the Dent County history book that gives his date of
death as April 8, 1905 at the Ed Morrison home in Dent County, MO.  The
following is on page 525 in Ozark Heritage, Dent County, Mo cemeteries &
families Vol III, 1994:

RUTLEDGE, JOHN W. 1848-4/8/1905  at the Ed Morrison home, s/o Stephen W
Rutledge of Tyrone, Texas Co.; md. Elizabeth Roark, 1870, Dent Co., worked
on Cook farm at Cook Station.

Note that they have his middle initial different from what we've commonly
known it by.  Still......it makes you wonder, doesn't it?

I also have his burial at the Pinto-Watson cemetery in Dent Co.  The same
source gives:
Pinto-Watson Cemetery - On Meramec River, Martin Hart farm.  Located in
Short Bend Township, Dent Co. close to Crawford Co line near Cook
Station -
also  referred to as old Taff Graveyard.


3.      I have different birth dates for the children of John and
Elizabeth:
Mary Elizabeth RUTLEDGE  b: 12/1/1870   d: 6/6/1947
Eliza A. RUTLEDGE       b: Abt. 1872
Rose A. RUTLEDGE        b: Abt. 1875
Oritha RUTLEDGE  b: 2/2/1877    d: 2/12/1961
Thomas Gilbert Henderson RUTLEDGE       b: 9/27/1877     d: 1/11/1963
Olive RUTLEDGE  b: Abt. 1878
Nancy RUTLEDGE  b: Abt. 1880
Charles Millard RUTLEDGE        b: 9/7/1885      d: 2/19/1961

These dates came from the census records:
A census abstract of the 1880 census in Cass Twp, Texas Co. MO shows:
296 Rutledge, John B.    hd     28        TN
                      Elizabeth         wf     34        TN
                        Mary E.           d         9       MO
                        Eliza A.           d         8       MO
                        Rosa A.           d        5       MO
                        Oritha               d        3      MO
                        Olive                 d         2      MO


4.      Thomas Gilbert Henderson RUTLEDGE married Margaret Octavia Bell
SISK.  She was b: November 4, 1880 in Missouri & d: January 13, 1939 in
Oregon County, Missouri.  Margaret Octavia Sisk (called Tavie by family)
was the daughter of David Sisk and Nancy Poindexter.  She was 1/2 or more
Cherokee Indian--David Sisk being full Cherokee and Nancy Poindexter being
a descendant of the Cherokee Poindexter/Pledge line on two lines.

Children of THOMAS RUTLEDGE and MARGARET (Tavie) SISK are:
          i.       DOLLIE7 RUTLEDGE5.
6.      ii.     MINNIE RUTLEDGE, b. September 3, 1901; d. June 23, 1974.
          iii.    STELLA RUTLEDGE5, b. October 13, 19045; d. December 25,
19385; m. WILLIE STEVENS5.
7.      iv.     DELIA LETA PERSILLIA RUTLEDGE, b. July 26, 1907, Oregon
County, MO; d. January 11, 2001, Thayer, Oregon Co, MO.
8.      v.      JAMES LEWIS RUTLEDGE, b. June 8, 1914, Oregon County,
Missouri; d. October 8, 1964, Oregon County, Missouri.
9.      vi.     FLORENCE LOUELLA RUTLEDGE, b. February 11, 1920, Oregon
Co., MO.
          vii.    LAWRENCE RUTLEDGE5, b. Abt. 1923; m. BETTY5.
          viii.   RUBY JEWELL RUTLEDGE5, b. August 23, 19255; m. NORMAN
BRIDGES5, June 22, 19455.

I sure wish your grandfather's family Bible would surface!  I don't know
what happened to Grandpa Tom's Bible.  I keep forgetting to ask Mom's
cousin if she would know.  He lived with Mom's aunt and uncle the last few
years of his life, so her parents probably had it at that time.

Hello !  I just subscribed to the list so I will introduce myself briefly then go to my question.  I am Julie (Rutledge) Bates.  I am the daughter of Cecil Rutledge, grandaughter of Charles M. Rutledge and great grandaughter of John B. Rutledge who was the son of Stephen W. Rutledge.  Looking at at the group sheets, I appear to be Kathye Hyde's second cousin.

My question.  John B. Rutledge is listed as having died 4 Dec, 1889 when he would have been age 36.  That fits with the knowledge my grandfather went to work for the railroad at the age of 8 (he was born 7 Sept. 1882).  Does anyone know what happened to him? 

Also does anyone know when and where his wife Elizabeth Roark died?  I have picture from approx. 1911 where she appears and my dad remembers her from his childhood.  But we don't have a date for her.

Can anyone help?

Thanks a lot and I apologize for running on.

Sincerely,

Julie Bates

Hi Jean...

I saw your post seeking info on Thomas Rutledge and a comment that a Thomas
Henry Rutledge moved to Collin Co., TX. and is buried in the Wilson Cemetery.
You also mention some Rutledges buried in Wilson Cemetery that you are
seeking add'l info on.... I think I may have info that will help you...The
folks you mention are, I believe, descendants of John M. Rutledge. These
Rutledges were from Cumberland Co. KY, and had strong ties to TN. They moved
later in life to Collin Co. TX and are buried in Wilson Cemetery.

We need to check dates of birth and death since several had the same names,
but I believe Hamilton C. Rutledge was a son of John M Rutledge. Ham was
born on Jan 11, 1848 in KY. He died Jan 22, 1934 in McKinney, Collin Co.,
TX. B.R. Rutledge is, I believe, Burley Rutledge, son of William and Alcey
(Willis) Rutledge.

At this point, I believe this William Rutledge was a son of John M Rutledge,
but I lack smoking gun proof on this point. William came from Cumberland Co
KY. He married Alcey Willis in Celina, TN on Feb 23, 1848. I believe Alcey
had a brother named Burley Willis, who served with her husband William in the
same company during the Civil War. Burley gave affadavits to help William
and Alcey prove claims for pensions, and I would assume they named their son
after Burley Willis. Most of my info on Wm and Alcey comes from war pension
files, obits, and info from descendants of this family who live in TX.

I have more on this family, and would be curious to see more on your Collin
Co. folk.. The ones I have data on had strong TN ties (Wm and Burly Willis
served in a TN Cavalry Unit and lots of the Willis family was in TN. One
confusing problem I've noted with county data from southern KY, like
Cumberland, and northern TN counties like Overton, is the Scott Line issue.
Often the data on my kin indicates they moved from KY to TN and back every
census. But it appears what actually happened is the state line moved back
and forth over them as KY and TN argued an error made in a boundry survey..
I'm not sure now that they actually moved at all...

Anyway.. let me know if you'd like more on these folk... I can send you an
attachment with more complete data.

One last point.... do you know if your Collin Co kin had ties to the Joseph
Rutledge Jr line of Walker Co. AL? I'm looking at the probability that John
M Rutledge was a son of Joseph Rutledge Jr.... the elusive Jack Rutledge
that is mentioned in Walker Co AL history, but nobody seems to have data
on.... John M went by the name Jack or Jackie and other clues lead me to
think he may be Jos Jr's son. I'd be interested to know if your folk have AL
ties...it might lead to info that the two groups were related.... John
Rutledge in Oregon


Sorry I mislead you.The Thomas Henry Rutledge buried at Wilson Chapel
is the son of John and Jane Gaw Brown Rutledge.
I know this because I
have copies of a letter and 4 post cards written between TH and his
mother Jane Rutledge in Pierce City, Mo. I have his death certificate
and it states he was born in Missiouri in 1850--no parents names were
listed because of a feud between the Browns, Gaws and Rutledges in
Jackson County, TN. Thomas Henry was the youngest son born of that
marriage. I also have a 5X7 photo copy of 5-6 adults that were listed
as children of Jane Gaw B Rutledge at the time of her death. (No date to
confirm the year but about 1874, more or less).

The other Rutledges I mentioned, I took photographs of every Rutledge
headstone and forwarded this information to the Ruts list with a cc to
Ron and Daryl Gardner. It was through them I learned BR's name was
Burley, but since this wasn't my line, I just wanted to let somebody
know of these vast family of Rutledges buried in McKinney's Wilson
Chapel Cemetery.

If you would like for me to send you a copy of the headstones of
particular Rutledge relatives of yours, send me your address and I will
be happy to forward this picture to you!

Just a brief note before reading further on this topic...Jackson Middleton
Rutledge information came from the book The South Carolina Rutledge Family -
Their Kith and Kin by J. C. Harris, published by The Gregath Publishing
Company, Eastern Division, P.O. Box 1045, Cullman, AL 35056. He has been
mentioned on the list many times.

The book is still around, some of the list members have copies I believe. Some
of his lineages contain errors, as most books seem to, but the information from
Thomas Rutledge (father of our Stephen W. Rutledge) seems to be correct as far
as we have been able to determine. I believe he also had pictures from late
1800's and early 1900's of descendants of Jackson Middleton Rutledge. I don't
have the book but I would dearly love to borrow one for a month or so!

If anyone on the list has the book, could you please post whatever justification
J. C. Harris gives for Jackson M. Rutledge? I've heard he wasn't long on
documentation, but he had to have said something along the lines of...Great
Aunt Whatshername said.....

in good hands here!

I hope the family of Mr. Harris doesn't object to my placing this
information from his book online.

The book has 639 numbered pages, with main portion of the book covering
pages 1-478, index 479-532, and various other listings thereafter.

Jackson Middleton Rutledge is not mentioned in the index.

All the above from the Jackson Middleton Rutledge family have
contributed to the genealogies listed in this section.



Page 534, The Sequatchie Valley Rutledges:

This family who also had origin in South Carolina is thought to be
closely related to the Rutledge Family whom this work features. There
are many who believe that Jackson Middleton Rutledge was the son of
Edward Rutledge. It is a fact that there was close association between
this family and the other descendants of Edward. I'm sorry that I
couldn't prove the relationship. The diary of Ann Manigault says that
Mrs. Edward Rutledge (S.C. Historical Magazine) gave birth to a son of
January 8, 1777. Could this be Jackson? So many in this family have
faithfully corresponded with the writer over the years, they must be
included in this work.

I enclose a picture of our ancient home, Hampton, where I live most of

Ann Rutledge, the alleged sweetheart of Lincoln, came from Tennessee.

This is what I have for Stephen's children. The information came partly from
what Thomas Gilbert Rutledge (his grandson) told my mother, and partly from
research done by Pearl Rutledge, grand-daughter-in-law of Stephen Rutledge. I
have no actual original source material for any of this, except for that
provided by census data in TN and in MO.

I've heard it said that Thomas Rutledge's middle name was Franklin, but haven't seen it written that way. Likewise, I've heard Stephen's middle name given as Wilson but have only seen it written with the middle initial.

I grew up in Houston, MO, in Texas County. Tyrone is not far from any of the places I lived while I lived at home. My parents and all three of my brothers, and my Grandma, uncles and aunts still live in Texas Co. so it's still home even though I haven't lived there since 1981. Rutledge is my Mom's family, and they all moved away around the turn of the 1900s, all in different directions apparently. I, too, have to echo the words a strange family in connection with my Rutledge line. There are some real questions with some of Stephen's children....

My mother's great-grandfather was John B. Rutledge, the oldest son of Stephen and Mary Rutledge. Her grandfather, Thomas Gilbert Rutledge, was born in Texas County and lived there for awhile, but was not listed as a family member in the only census I've found for that family. That was the 1880 census. The 1890 census was lost and John B. Rutledge died in 1889. No one knows where his wife, Elizabeth Roark, disappeared to after John's death. There is some mystery about that, too, which will have to be explained in another post. At any rate, Thomas G. Rutledge became a preacher and moved to Oregon County, MO where he married, raised a large family and died in 1963. My mother adored him and spent many hours hearing about the family, but the Rutledges of Texas County and before were not very well taught.

Stephen W. Rutledge and Mary Massey Rutledge are buried in the Tyrone cemetery, near the dirt drive that leads from the county road to the farm on the other side of the cemetery. Stephen and Mary are right next to the road, with children and grandchildren behind them. Here are the stones that I recognized:

James H. Marsee Jan 27, 1884 - Feb 11, 1917

John G. Marsee 1849-1937

Sarah Marsee (wife of J. G.) 10-23-1855 - 5-7-1910 ** This is Sarah Rutledge (Stephen's daughter). Also, we had her death date as 3-13-1910

Virgle, Infant son of M.F. and J. F. McKinney died 7-6-1889 1 mo 10 day We had treasure on earth. He was our joy and pride. We loved him perhaps too well For soon he slept and died.

This was the son of Meldon and Flora Josephine (Rutledge) McKinney. She was the daughter of Stephen and Mary Rutledge.

Mary N. Owen dau of H.M. C.M. Owen born July 22, 1882 died Nov. 16, 1895 13 yr 3 m 25 day

This was the daughter of Henry Mentlow and Chelnessee Matrina (Rutledge) Owen. Chelnessee was the great-grandmother of Marie Kelly Privitt, Monty Kelly Ramsland and Don Kelly.

I have a list of land records from 1882 to 1908 between Stephen W. Rutledge and his children, and between a couple of the children selling land to each other. I will post those later. Right now, it's well past my bedtime, so I'll close with best wishes for a warm and healthy rest for all.

Kaye, have you gone to Houston , Mo and area and research the Rutledge and Owen families? I was there a year ago but wasn't feeling well enough to do the Owen family also. If someone has not done all the records on Owen in that area, I will try to get up there in a few months when I am stronger . As soon as I can get to it I will send the records I found in Houston, Salem and Tyrone, MO. Marie

I found a copy of Stephen's death certificate and in the place for his father is Wilson Rutledge of TN and ________ Wilson of TN. 1850 Census for Bledsoe County, TN states his father as Thomas Franklin Rutledge. Which is correct??? Monty

Stephen and Mary were married in December 1850 in Bledsoe County. Stephen was barely 17 and Mary was only 15. They moved to Giles or Lawrence Co shortly thereafter. However, on the 1860 census of Giles Co, TN, it shows John B. Rutledge born in Alabama. It also has a check mark in the race column. Kay Martin and I have speculated that one to death and the only explanation we could find was that, with him being a 6 year old boy, being out in the sun a lot, and being about 1/4 or so Cherokee, he probably LOOKED very much like an indian. Mary would probably have stayed in more, kept her face, arms and hands covered as much as possible to fade her color so she could blend in better.

The Alabama part is still a mystery. Personally, I think that's where they made their rendezvous with the mother ship that year.....

Thank you for the information. I believe the Johnson Rutledge who married in IN was Johnson's son. Early History of Giles Co. states that John and William Rutlege and Joel Rutledge were early settlers of the county in 1807. From the way it was written, I believe William was Johnson's unmarried son. Johnson died sometime before 1821. In his estate settlement, his heirs are listed as Joel, William, Absalom, Johnson, Elijah (deceased), Elizabeth and Polly McKedy. All except Joel had removed to IN by 1821. A receipt for the transfer of Johnson 2's share of the estate was witnessed by John B. Rutledge and Elzey Rutledge. That is the only evidence I have of John B. being in Giles Co. before 1836 and I assume he was part of this family. John Boles and Elzey may have been Joel's sons but the Boles name is still a mystery. Joel married Susan West in NC.
I have not been able to connect the early TN Rutledges with this family but still hope to do so. That is why I was curious about Johnson's sisters.

Hello Jean, and hello to all Rutledge mailing list members. I just joined the mailing list and saw your message regarding unfiled papers resources for Civil War veterans. My late uncle Bill Rutledge of Enid, Oklahoma did a considerable amount of Rutledge research and determined that his grandfather, William C. Rutledge served as an officer in the Rutledge Rifles CSA artillery battery. This unit was formed in Nashville at the beginning of the war and fought with distinction in a number of battles, including Shiloh. From what I have been able to determine, the roster for this unit seems to have been destroyed or lost during the war. Available records I have found are fragmentary, although the TN State Library and Archives have an old picture of the Rutledge Rifles officers and apparently have a list of the names and ranks of the 11 men in the picture. Arthur Middleton Rutledge, the battery commander, is also in the picture seated 2nd from the left. My great grandfather is seated 3rd from the left. His resemblence to members of my family (including me!) is striking.
Does anyone have any information for me on William C. Rutledge? Also, does anyone have information on William G. Rutledge (1826-after 1898) from Sullivan County, TN? My uncle believed that he served in the CSA, too, and there is a TN CSA farrier (horse-master) of that name in the official rosters.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks for all you help.

Kathye.... I've been looking for add'l data on the James Rutledge you listed Civil War info on... What I've found is very sketchy.... In a book by Kathryn Owen, of Winchester, Clark Co., KY titled Civil War Days in Clark County, page 78... she writes: James Rutledge....enlisted October 1, 1862, at the age of sixty-two years. Was in Co. A., 11th Ky. Cavalry, Morgan's command. Was in prison at Camp Douglas for six months. Was honorably discharged about 1865. In addition she lists a John Rutledge of Clark Co. also. John Rutledge...Enlisted July 1862 in Cassells' Company, 2nd Ky. Cavalry, Morgan's command. Was honorably discharged April 1865. Most of her info came, I think, from the Clark County Chronicles Newspaper. I long thought these may be the sons of John and Valentine Rutledge of Clark Co. However, if the Owens info is correct, the James she lists as 62 in 1862 would be ten years older than James, the son of John and Valentine. Course, there is no shortage of James and Johns in Clark Co at this time, so its very possible my attempt to tie them to John and Valentine is in error... Did the geocities list any add'l clues re: pension info, etc? I've not been able to locate any at the KY State Archives. If you see more, I'd like to hear.... thanks for posting the URL....

I have a file R-TH-014, the family of Thomas/Peter Rutledge, 1768 NC - before 1830 SC or TN, m. Matilda.
I have Matilda BRANHAM, but Jean Buckley suggests Matilda PERRIN. I don't know which is correct. Was she previously or later married to someone in addition to Thomas?
Have I sent you a copy of R-TH-014? If not, let me know and I will send it. I'm missing a couple of (hundred) details.
Thanks, and best wishes, Darryl

No, I don't think I have that file. For a long time we were under the idea that Matilda had married a Branham before marrying Thomas/Peter RUTLEDGE and one theory was that her maiden name was PERRIN because she named a son that. I don't think we should discount a relationship to a family by that name, but recently one of our researchers had indications that the BRANHAM men mentioned in her will were her brothers and not her sons, therefore Matilda BRANHAM was her maiden name, she married Thomas/Peter RUTLEDGE in the late 1790s, and after his death married in TN a DAVIDSON (no issue). I would be interested in anything you might have, Thomas/Peter is our brick wall and several members of this list would be most greatful for a breakthrough.
Thanks so much,
Lynda

I ... presume they were renting a house. William might be the William that later settled in Collin (McKinney) Co. TX. I believe these Rutledges descend from David Weldon Rutledge (ca. 1790 NC - ca. 1844 Rutherford Co. TN) and wife Angelina Williamson (ca. 1799 VA - 18.. Cape Girardeau Co. MO). L. M. is probably David's son Ludie Monroe (20 Mar 1820 Rutherford Co. TN - 6 May 1870 Fannin Co. TX). Monroe m/1 Rebecca L. Crowder (4 Jan 1822 VA - 1852 Marshall Co. TN), and they had 6 ch. Monroe m/2 Margaret Virginia Aldridge (7 Apr 1834 TN - 17 Mar 1899 Sulphur Co. OK). William is probably Monroe's son William Edward (27 Mar 1840 Rutherford Co. TN - 1...). William married Sarah J. Netherton (18..-1...). I don't know if this is correct, but one source suggested William was a twin, but the dates don't match any other children I have for Monroe. John is probably Monroe's son John Joel (25 May 1842 Hickman or Rutherford Co. TN - 25 Dec 1907 Kiowa Co. OK). John m/1 Mary E. Mollie Minton (22 Jun 1850 TN - 27 Dec 1878 Cook Co.

I found the following marriage listed on the Bledsoe County marriage records page, part of the GenWeb project: MILLER, Jessie H. married RUTLEGE, Nancy J. [date] 25 Sep, 1850 [source] Certificate contributed by Evelyn Grimes I am thinking (hoping) this is our Nancy Rutledge, the daughter of Thomas Rutledge and sister to my ggg-grandfather, Stephen W. Rutlege. I had been told our Nancy married a Mr. Miller, but had not been able to find out his name or what happened to them after she left home. In the letters Pearl Rutledge wrote, she mentioned they went to MO with Steven and his 2 other brothers, which we have yet to determine the identity of. Does anyone have anything further on this Nancy Jessie Miller? Kathye

The following is abstracted from the pension file of William Rutledge for service during the War of 1812, and posted in the hope it may be of interest to anyone working on Rutledges of TN or IN.

Date not stated (More info below) Death of Soldier: After 1855, near Fort Branch, Gibson Co., IN. Supplemental Affidavit: Dated 7th day of April, 1871, Gibson Co., IN Sarah Rutledge, widow of William Rutledge who was a soldier in the War of 1812, on her oath says, that she is now old, and her memory is greatly impaired, that she is now unable to give the date of her marriage to her late husband William Rutledge or the date of his enlistment or discharge, or any further particulars as to his military service than is stated in her appllication for a pension herewith presented. She is however able to make this explanation, that at the time her said husband entered the army in the War of 1812, she had had three children by him. Subequent to their marriage, the youngest of which was an infant. Her husband served three months, and he came home after his discharge in the month of June, and the fall following, they removed from Tennessee to the territory of Indiana. She knows that her said husband drew his land warrants for the service aforesaid, or she drew them after his death and as to the date of her husbands enlistment she can state that the war did not terminate for about six months after his discharge, possibly nearly a year. Signed: Sarah Rutledge, her mark Attest: Stephen W. Mead and J.J. Rutchett (The comment by Sarah that her husband was discharged in June is a little confusing, since the Army Auditor states he was discharged in Feb. Possibly she just was confused, or his discharge was in Feb, but he didn't get home until June....in any event, it appears they moved to IN that Fall) Add'l Affidavit: Dated August 31, 1871 We Ezekiel Bonen and Jesse Douglass of Gibson County, Indiana on oath say.... attest they knew William and Sarah, he served in the War, etc. They continue..we further say that the said William Rutledge departed this life about the month of December, 1850, the exact time of his death we are unable to give, but that he did die about the time specified we well know, for we attended his funeral.

Thrilled and excited Kathye The Grainger County Library in Rutledge, Tenn. now has a Canon Microfilm Reader and Printer with a Coin Meter so all you genealogy researchers can copy records that are on microfilm in the library. The Grainger County Heritage Book Committee came together more than two years ago merely as acquaintances with Graninger County roots and certainly with no plans of it becoming a money making project. What evolved was the publication of Grainger County, Tenn. and Its People, 1796-1998. The sales of the book were overwhelming and we accrued a sizeable profit. As we worked with the people who submitted articles, we became aware of the condition of the records in our own county. It was a unanimous decision of the committee to help the people with roots here to access the records. In December 1998, we made a proposal to the city of Rutledge to use space in the Nance House for a library of county records using our money to aid in that project. To this date we do not know the status of that proposal. However, we made the decision to go ahead and purchase the Microfilm Reader and Printer as a part of this project for the Rutledge Library. This equipment will enable all interested people and genealogist to both view and print copies of county records on film in the library. Most of the records that are in the old school building are on microfilm in the library - Deaths, Deeds, Marriages, Court Records, etc. Library hours are Monday 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM, Wednesday and Friday 9:00 - 5:00 PM. The Court House in Rutledge is closed Wednesday afternoons. We hope you continue to enjoy the book and now the access to more of the County Records by using this equipment.

Hello, Don,

It's wonderful to know Marie is doing okay, and best wishes on a full recovery.

Regarding your question about SC-TN connections, it is easily proven that some of the Rutledges in Middle TN are related to those of SC. Henry Middleton Rutledge, son of Edward the Signer, and wife Septima Sexta Middleton settled/managed several thousand acres along the Elk River which his uncle John Rutledge had been awarded as a result of his Revolutionary War activities, and subsequently sold to brother Edward.

However - to the best of my knowledge - it remains to be seen whether other Rutledges in East TN are connected to those of SC. If they are, it is further back than anyone has been able to prove. As you know there has been speculation on a possible Jackson Middleton Rutledge, but again absolutely no proof on him.

Referring to the family of George Rutledge (b. ca. 1690 Scotland) and wife Nelly Gamble, Mrs. Clarence A. Witcher of Bristol TN stated Rutledge of SC was a lineal relative of this family. I don't know what her proof was, or if it was speculation.

Many RML members have likely noticed my speaking of TN as though it was three distinct entities; here is the reason for that distinction. Quoting from the Tennessee Blue Book 1983-1984 p. 409, Natural Areas of Tennessee:

Tennessee is divided into nine topographical regions from east to west. They are usually listed as follows: Unaka Mountains or Great Smokies; Valley of East Tennessee; Cumberland Plateau; Eastern Highland Rim; Great Central Basin; Western Highland Rim; Valley of Tennessee River; Gulf Coastal Plain; and Mississippi Bottoms.

The highest peaks of the Great Smoky Mountains along the eastern border of the State reach an altitude of more than six thousand feet above sea level - the highest point in the United States east of the Rocky Mountains being located in the Great Smokies or the Unaka Range of the Appalachians.

The State is roughly divided into three general sections or Grand Divisions known as East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, and West Tennessee.

East Tennessee is mountainous and rugged, seamed with valleys, chief among them being the Tennessee River Valley which runs obliquely across the State from northeast to southwest, broken by a series of ridges parallel with the trend of the Valley. The western part of this grand Division includes the Cumberland Mountains with an elevation of more than two thousand feet. East Tennessee is drained by the Tennessee, French Broad, Hiwassee, Watauga, Holston, Clinch, Powell, and Nolichuckey rivers and affluents.

Middle Tennessee lies west of the Cumberland Plateau and has an undulating or rolling surface, with level reaches, and an elevation ranging from five hundred to one thousand feet with the exception of that portion of the Cumberland Mountains which lie in Middle Tennessee, which reach an elevation of more than two thousand feet in places. This section is drained chiefly by Tennessee, Cumberland, Caney Fork, Buffalo, Duck, Harpeth, and other smaller rivers and streams.

In Middle Tennessee is located the Central Basin. This basin comprises more than five thousand square miles, and has been named by its admirers The Dimple of the Universe. Blue grass is indigenous to this section and the breeding of thoroughbred horses and purebred cattle and hogs has been carried on here for more than a century. Surrounding the Central Basin of Middle Tennessee is the Highland Rim, with an average altitude of about one thousand feet above sea level.

West Tennessee, which is divided from Middle Tennessee by the Tennessee River, comprises about ten thousand square miles of territory and extends from the Tennessee River on the east to the Mississippi River on the west, and includes about one thousand square miles of Mississippi River bottom lands.

Of such importance that TN is considered three entirely separate areas, in the 1960's and 70's, as you entered TN from NC travelling west on I-40 the State's welcome sign stated Welcome to the Three States of Tennessee.

These are all the Rutledges (and spelling variations) I have found in 1850 TN censuses. Listed are the county, which grand division of TN, head of household, age, state born, spouse, age and state born:

Pearl's husband had the original of the diary. Pearl had it typed. At a later date the original was distroyed in a flood (or something). The copy I have is a copy of the original typed copy. Pearl is elderly. Still does genealogy but I can't get a question answered anymore. She isn't able to get out and do her own searching anymore. Her health isn't very good anymore.

Also I am still here... Have put all email on zip-disk to look at later. Bought a newer MH and have been trying to get resettled. Painting, etc. Busy, busy, busy........Marie

I understand that Pearl wrote the first copy of Stephen's civil war diary. She received the original copy which had been damages by flood from a niece who had it for fifty years. That is approximately what happened. Pearl lives in Washington State, not far as it were from Sunny. I believe that Marie has corresponded in the past thirty years witth Pearl, so Marie would probably have the best current information. Stephen in old age gave his diary to one of his sons. Marie, Montez and Olene are my sisters. Don

Tina, both Marie and Rachell know a Pearl Rutledge who has a lot of oral history. I think she may be elderly. When they get back on list maybe they can help you. Also, Marie and Don K. are cousins... so he might know of her, too. Wouldn't it be interesting if their Pearl is also yours???????

I ... presume they were renting a house. William might be the William that later settled in Collin (McKinney) Co. TX.

I believe these Rutledges descend from David Weldon Rutledge (ca. 1790 NC - ca. 1844 Rutherford Co. TN) and wife Angelina Williamson (ca. 1799 VA - 18.. Cape Girardeau Co. MO).

L. M. is probably David's son Ludie Monroe (20 Mar 1820 Rutherford Co. TN - 6 May 1870 Fannin Co. TX). Monroe m/1 Rebecca L. Crowder (4 Jan 1822 VA - 1852 Marshall Co. TN), and they had 6 ch. Monroe m/2 Margaret Virginia Aldridge (7 Apr 1834 TN - 17 Mar 1899 Sulphur Co. OK).

William is probably Monroe's son William Edward (27 Mar 1840 Rutherford Co. TN - 1...). William married Sarah J. Netherton (18..-1...). I don't know if this is correct, but one source suggested William was a twin, but the dates don't match any other children I have for Monroe.

John is probably Monroe's son John Joel (25 May 1842 Hickman or Rutherford Co. TN - 25 Dec 1907 Kiowa Co. OK). John m/1 Mary E. Mollie Minton (22 Jun 1850 TN - 27 Dec 1878 Cook Co. TX), and they had 4 ch. John m/2 Martha Alice Phillips (1 Jan 1862 Valley Creek TX - 29 Jan 1929 Duncan OK).


I recently received from aunt who is 80 a number of family group sheets for the following Franklin Rutledge and Malinda Agnes Humphreys, John Rutledge and Margaret Williams, William Richard Rutledge and Elizabeth Williams, James Enos Rutledge and Eleanor Ralston, Edward Rutledge and Sarah Armstrong, Thomas Rutledge and Jean Armstrong, George Rutledge and Nelly Gamble, Edward Thomas Rutledge and Elizabeth Graem, John Rutledge, George Rutledge, and Cavan Rutledge, Places are Scotland, Ireland, Augusta Co. Va., Christchurch, S.C., Sullivan Co. Tn., White Co., Tn.,Washington Co., Tn., Montgomery Co. Tn., Spencer Co., Ind., Flagg Springs, Va., Table Grove, Ill, Fulton Co., Ill, and McDonough Co., Ill.

I asked her where she got them and she couldn't remember all of where she got them. I think a lot of it was when my Mother was living her and my Aunt made a trip east for family information, also he cousin Clifford Wilson who lives in McDonough Co., Ill. is a devout Morman so a lot probably came from the LDS church, and lastly my Grandmother had a very sharp mind and was a big letter writer and very inquizitive, she died at the young age of 99 years 10 months. I was born and raised in McDonough County and also spent time in Fulton County it is all very rich farm land. Also I notice the Rutledge's belived in large familys. So I can understand how they populated the United States far and wide. So to all who are sick or going for an operation remember Rutledges' live a long and proporus life. Regards; Jack

Bill.....thank you so much. A comment and two questions: I have banged around quite a bit in Hawkins and adjacent counties, looking mostly for Owen and Rutledge, but also scrounging for other related families.

1) I found a bunch of Armstrongs who were slave owners in VA and TN.....at one point I found an Armstrong cemetery at a horseshoe bend in the Holsten river. I could again find it on a map if I had to.

2) Along the way I found the town Rutledge. None of us know who founded it, but the people in Rutledge say it was founded by a General Rutledge from Virginia. How does all of this fit into your records,......or does it fit at all?.

Thank you for the information. I believe the Johnson Rutledge who married in IN was Johnson's son. Early History of Giles Co. states that John and William Rutlege and Joel Rutledge were early settlers of the county in 1807.
From the way it was written, I believe William was Johnson's unmarried son. Johnson died sometime before 1821. In his estate settlement, his heirs are listed as Joel, William, Absalom, Johnson, Elijah (deceased), Elizabeth and Polly McKedy. All except Joel had removed to IN by 1821. A receipt for the transfer of Johnson 2's share of the estate was witnessed by John B. Rutledge and Elzey Rutledge.
That is the only evidence I have of John B. being in Giles Co. before 1836 and I assume he was part of this family. John Boles and Elzey may have been Joel's sons but the Boles name is still a mystery. Joel married Susan West in NC.
I have not been able to connect the early TN Rutledges with this family but still hope to do so. That is why I was curious about Johnson's sisters.


Hi listmembers,
In the course of researching my Goff and Tarkington families, I was
directed to the web page of James Goff. This page is my line but it is also
full of Rutledges! These Rutledges seem to be from Virginia (early) and
then primarly Tenn. There are so many listed that I don't want to copy them
all.

I will just give you the wewb address and let you browse on your own.

Hope you find someone interesting!!

I found the wrong Fountain? Oh well--it was a bit of serendipity anyway... What clues do you have about Mr Mysterious the Elder? I'll keep posting and maybe he'll show up!

Not realted, but awfully curious! Cyndi in Baltimore

Actually Cyndi, Fountain is not Mr. Mysterious since we know quite a bit about him. However, he may be Mr. Miracle since he does not seem to have a father. Its this unknown father who is creating the problem. We do not have a clue! Carole G. wants to go back and examine the possibility of a John Rutledge she found in Ky. (Fountain named his son John). Also, there was a John Rutledge who served in a Major Fountain's regiment. Perhaps that is where the name came from - interesting, huh? Our Fountain Rutledge was born in Jessamine County KY (VA) in 1796. His mother was Elizabeth Allen Rutledge. She inherited land in Charlottes Court House Virginia, along with Walkers. She died around 1832.

There are 3 Fountain Rutledge's. 1) Our Fountain b. 1796, 2) the Civil War Fountain whom you found, and 3) Preacher Fountain, grandson to Our Fountain and brother to Carole and Donavon's great grandfathers. I believe but don't have proof that William Rutledge who married C.Belote and is the father of Civil War Fountain... is kin to Our Fountain. Perhaps brother. We have much more but don't want to belabor this! Thanks for helping. Carol


Hello, all,
Attached is a composite of all the censuses I have been able to locate on Emanuel, Thomas, and Lorenzo Dow Rutledge.
They appear to confirm the approximate dates I have given for the year of their births, all in VA, i.e. Emanuel - ca. 1801, Thomas - ca. 1803, and Lorenzo Dow - ca. 1814.

Hello, all,
Pearl is Pearl L. Wiley Rutledge, born ca May 1906, and the widow of Virgil H. Rutledge (16 Sep 1899 WA - 15 Aug 1987 Cowlitz Co. WA).
Pearl did a lot of research into the Rutledge family, as though it was her own blood line. I used to converse with her via letter. At the time she was staying with one of her daughters in Washington state. She was having a rough time from arthritis/rheumatism in her hands and was unable to continue writing, and it was rapidly becoming more of a hindrance. I haven't heard from her in 3 years or more. I haven't heard whether anyone else has either.
Virgil is the 3rd of 10 ch. born to William Thornton Rutledge (3 Feb 1872 Texas Co. MO - 13 Aug 1950 Mills Co IA) and wife Eliza Jane Janie Morgan (20 Mar 1878 Owen Co. KY? - 28 Dec 1967).
William is the 9th of 11 ch. born to Stephen W. Rutledge (6? Jul 1833 Hawkins Co. TN - 12 Oct 1910 Texas Co. MO) and wife Mary Massey (4 Aug 1835 Bledsoe Co. TN - 29 Dec 1909 Texas Co. MO).
Stephen is the 3rd of 17 to 20 ch. born to Thomas F? Rutledge (ca. 1803/04 VA - 1870? Bledsoe Co. TN). There is a question of whether Thomas married twice or three times, but Stephen is by his first wife, believed to be a Wilson, and probably died ca. 1843.
Hope this helps.
Best wishes,
Darryl Gardner 532 Big Springs Rd. Rogersville, TN 37857

Letter written by Wiley Blount Rutledge Jr., 30 Sep 1946.
Marie, Thank you for sending this. I have often wondered what the whole letter said. Pearl Rutledge quoted bits and pieces of it in a letter she wrote to another researcher, but I hadn't seen the entire letter.
As Don says, it does tend to sustain suspicions we had formed from the data available to us. First and foremost, of course, is the final proof that Stephen W. Rutledge is a son of this Thomas Rutledge, and a half-brother to Wiley B. Rutledge, Sr. The question of Stephen's parentage appears to be at least half-way solved. Wish I could say the same for Thomas's!
Second is the supposition that Thomas Rutledge came from Hawkins Co, TN and was a brother of Emanuel and Lorenzo Dow Rutledge. It is too bad that Wiley Sr, was unable to contact his Hawkins Co. relatives. Am I correct in thinking that they had all moved away by then? Or was there a rift that made Thomas an outcast that no one would claim? I do know that Lorenzo Dow Rutledge was in Bledsoe Co, not too far away from Thomas, in 1850. He had moved away by the time Wiley was born, however, so it's quite likely there was no one HE recognized still living in Hawkins or Bledsoe Co.
Now for the differences of opinion:
1. I have studied and studied the various census records from 1830 til 1870 for Hawkins and Bledsoe County. It's very confusing with so little to go on, but I believe either James or Thomas (or both) must have died young. Granted, one or both of them would have been old enough to be married and moved away by the time of the 1850 census, but where would he have gone to? Perhaps *he* is the mysterious James Rutledge everyone is seeking. Also, Wiley says he was told there were 7 sons and he only counted 6. Probably the 7th son either died at birth or shortly afterwards.
2. I don't believe Thomas had a wife between Miss Wilson and Jane Hall Pope. The 1830 census almost certainly included Miss Wilson, and the 1840 census showed a wife in the same age range. The 1850 census shows Jane as Thomas's wife, as does the 1860 1870 census. While it is possible that Miss Wilson died after the birth of John and a second Mrs Rutledge was married and buried in time for Thomas to marry Jane Hall Pope and have Harriet, I sincerely doubt it. What facts are available to support that theory? With only 2 years between Harriet and Emilie, it would have been an amazingly quick courtship if Harriet were the daughter of wife #2 and Jane the mother of Emilie. Not that it COULDN'T be, but I would just like to see something solid there, especially since Wiley only mentions 2 wives.
3. Wiley says his grandfather died during the Civil War at about 60 years of age. However, I have the 1870 census report here which shows him alive at the age of 66 when the census was taken on June 24, 1870 (unless he had recently died and they were including him as alive for the census purpose). I do believe he was born in 1804 or close to it, because his age as given in all the census records from 1830-1870 seem to support that.
4. Wiley says he was told there were 7 sons and 2 daughters, but he names the daughters of Thomas' first wife as Mary, Nancy, Jane Sarah Ann. However, Nancy is given as Nancy J. on the 1850 census and I believe her middle name was Jane, therefore Nancy Jane was one daughter rather than two.
Also, Mary is probably the daughter of Jane and Mr. Pope, as mentioned further down in his letter. The 1850 census shows Mary age 10 and Catherine age
5. Wiley says Jane had 2 daughters, Mary who married Mr Bowman Catherine who married my Uncle Frank Sullivan. Since those girls *should* have been living with their mother, and Thomas showed girls of the right names and ages in his household, I feel certain these were Jane's daughters and Thomas' step- daughters.
6. I don't know when Cornelius left Tennessee or where he went to after he left Columbus OH, but he was in Giles Co, TN in 1860. He was listed as Neely Rutledge in the household of James Massey and Sarah Ann (Rutledge) Massey. I didn't copy that census page, so I don't remember how far away he was from Stephen and Mary Rutledge, but not far. When Ken was copying the Louisville City Directories he found Wiley B. Rutledge in Louisville in 1902 as a student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. This would imply that Cornelius was in Columbus at least until that date. Has anyone checked the census of Columbus OH for 1900?
Does anyone recognize any of these people? This is what I know of the younger children of Thomas Rutledge and Jane Hall Pope:
+24 Benjamin Franklin RUTLEDGE was b: 1852 in Bledsoe Co., TN and married Delila Jane BOWMAN (b: April 07, 1855 in TN - d: February 20, 1885) m: Abt. 1875 in Tennessee
Children of Benjamin Franklin Rutledge and Delila Jane Bowman are:
Lanora RUTLEDGE b: 1876 in Bledsoe Co., TN Reason RUTLEDGE b: 1878 in Bledsoe Co., TN
** There were probably other children, but these were the only ones listed on the 1880 census of Bledsoe Co, TN. I don't know where they were after 1880.
27 vii. Anderson Lee Rutledge, born 1858 in Bledsoe Co., TN; died February 1931 in Albequerque, NM. He married Tennessee Campbell 1886.
** From somewhere, I have the information that he married Tennessee Campbell and that he died in Alburqueque, NM. I was in a hurry and didn't write in the source or whose line it was and now can't find the original mail. I strongly suspect it was somewhere in my old email that disappeared in a puff of smoke either when my old computer died or when I upgraded my AOL program.
28 viii. Edwin Rutledge, born September 07, 1859 in Bledsoe Co., TN; died September 24, 1894. He married Margaret Reed.
+29 Wiley Blount4 Rutledge (Thomas3, Jackson Middleton2, Edward1) was born October 21, 1861 in Bledsoe Co., TN, and died July 06, 1944. He married Mary Lou Wigginton.
Child of Wiley Rutledge and Mary Wigginton is: 66 i. Wiley B. Jr.5 Rutledge.
Notes: Rutledge, Wiley Blount (1894-1949) Born in Cloverport, Ky., July 20, 1894. Federal judge, 1939; Justice of U.S. Supreme Court, 1943-49. Died in York, Maine, September 10, 1949. Interment at Green Mountain Cemetery, Boulder, Colo.

Okay,Rooters, I've just returned from Vicksburg, MS--saw the Civil War Battlefield, USS Cairo(KAY-row), Cedar Grove Mansion Inn (where a real cannon ball is still stuck in the wall of the front parlor as well as the living room floor) AND visited Memphis, Shelby County City Library.

Now, for news on Memphis,TN RUTLEDGES! For anyone searching for the marriage of NATHAN FRANKLIN RUTLEDGE, he married Nancy P. Davis in Memphis, 23 February 1858. I HAVE A COPY OF THE ORIGINAL MARRIAGE CERTIFICATE FROM THE MEMPHIS ARCHIVES if anyone wants it. (See bottom for computer address.)

Also, copy of original Will of John Rutledge,Dec'd; William Rutledge Admr and settlement of his estate. He died in 1855, File #1518. Estate was settled in August 1857 by William Rutledge, Admr.; he named David Rutledge, Katharine Rutledge and William Rutledge but no relationship was given.

The Memphis Archivist told me the bond traditionally paid (in the amount of $1,250) was a bond for marriage paid to the bride. It was a matter of the man's honor at stake. This bond insured 'the bride was not left at the alter waiting'. However, I also was told only a handful of cases could be accounted, the marriage certificate was not returned--one reason simply stated, the bride refused to come out from under her bed! The bride received the bond at the wedding ceremony for hers to keep as her own monies. If the man stood the bride up, it reflected on his 'southern honor' as a coward--to which there were only a few!

Don,

You've probably looked already, but just in case......

The RootsWeb site for DeKalb county, Tennessee has a large listing of Civil

RUTLEDGE, Thomas, father of Stephen:
QUERY: We are attempting to document the parents, parent's siblings and grandparents of 3gfather Stephen W. Rutledge.

What we think ( undocumented )is:

(1. Stephen's father Thomas Rutledge was b. VA, (2. mother of Stephen was a Wilson b. in NC. (3. Stephen's middle name, initial W stands for middle name Wilson, (4 Stephen's grandparents, probably from Virginia, are unknown in record found so far.

What we know is:( documented )

Stephen W. Rutledge was b. 1833 Hawkins Co., TN. He lived with his family near the Holsten River. Father Thomas Rutledge was found in Hawkins Co. census 1830 (living between Sarah Rutledge (his mother?) and Stephen Wilson (his father in law?). Sarah lived next door and Stephen Wilson lived about four houses away.

In 1840 census Sarah not listed. There was another Wilson living next door to Thomas Rutledge, and two other Wilsons lived two houses away. These were Stephen Wilson and probably his sons - and probably brothers-in-law of Thomas Rutledge.

The family moved to Pikeville, Bledsoe Co., TN where found 1850 census. Stephen met and married Mary Massey (from Sequatche Co.). Think her perents were John Massey and perhaps Mary Alsop. Stephen found 1860 census in Giles Co., TN. (Stephen and Mary with three children because two had died.) Stephen fought three years as a soldier (Confederate). In 1870 census the family lived at Mt. Pleasant in Giles Co., TN. Sometime after 1870 the family moved to Missouri and founded the town of Tyrone. In theory, Stephen's Rutledge line may have come from Tyrone, Ireland. Stephen's trade was Shoemaker. In later years he became a Methodist Minister and lived in Tyrone, MO until death in 1910. His wife Mary had died a year earlier in 1909.

The Rutledge children married and located from Iowa to Louisiana. Surnames: ROARK, MARSEE, OWEN (mine), QUACKENBUSH, URBACK, KIGER, MORGAN, McKINNEY and WILKERSON.

NOTE: from Richard and Carol:

I might mention that when I first searched in McKinney, Collin Co. for Thomas Henry Rutledge, son of John Rutledge and Jane Gaw Brown Rutledge, I came across another Rutledge who was a plumber in McKinney. I asked if he was related to Thomas Henry and he told me no, but his Dad was still living and sometimes would mention that their family left Tennessee in the middle of the night and moved to Oklahoma! No one EVER spoke of that night or the reason why? I want to say his name was also a Richard Rutledge, Plumber, but that might not be so; however, he was very intrigued at how I found my information and did go to the trouble to let me meet his 72+ year old Dad who almost told me not to go hunting for trouble! What a weird man!

Any, I have not persued this anymore, because I found my grandson, James Clarence Rutledge with information on Thomas Henry Rutledge that filled several pages of notes. His grandfather THR was the oldest Mason in Collin County in 1943 when he died at 93 years old. He told me a friend painted the old Rutledge homestead in McKinney, the house his grandfather built himself at the turn of the century and that he had hauled wood on a sled, saving his money to buy a mule and sell from a wagon. He also showed me a cane, handmade by Thomas Henry himself that at one time had a name plate with T H Rutledge, but his father James Charles had worn it off or it broke off from the cane.

Naturally, I photographed all this for posterity and future cousins that I might meet. So, I was quite bewildered at all the other Rutledges buried in Wilson Chapel Cemetery and no connection to my first cousin, 6 times removed. There was a Jane Rutledge, with the N turned backwards, and Hamilton C. Rutledge and Jack Rutledge. All of these Rutledges can be found in the Collin County Cemetery Book published by Collin Co. History Soc.

NOTE from From: Lesa Russell

I am seeking information on the mother of Robert Rutledge Moore, son of George Moore and (?) Rutledge. My Rutledge family lived in Rutherford County, TN in the early 1800s. I have found several references to Robert Rutledge associated with George Moore. Does anyone have any information?

I am also interested in finding out who the Henrietta Rutledge was who married Frederick Rutledge in Davidson County, TN in 1826. Does anyone have any information on these two Rutledge families? Someone please help!

Answer from Marie

Henrietta Rutledge Frederick Rutledge are both from the Dr. John Rutledge family. There is an extensive genealogy on line. I get it on my home page through I can't think of what it is but you should be able to get this file through GENEALOGY then RUTLEDGE then DR JOHN RUTLEDGE. let me know if you don't find it and I will look it up for you. Marie

1. JOHN1 RUTLEDGE. He married REBECCA JANE PARSONS 1839, daughter of THOMAS PARSONS and JANE ANN.

Notes for REBECCA JANE PARSONS: Called Jane in some places and Rebecca in other places - but both married a Rutledge so I feel they are one and the same. (Found in Riceville, McMinn Co TN 1804-20) then some of the Parsons went to Rome GA and/or Ala. Most of mine ended up in Pike Co. AR.

John Dill, in the following correspondance received in March 1, 1998, you speak of your ancestor Benjamin and his mother Matilda. Would this Matilda be the same Mathilda who is the wife listed in the will of William Rutledge of Stokes Co North Carolina? And would your Benjamin be the son of William Rutledge of Stokes Co North Carolina? Do you know the siblings of your ancestor Benjamin? Please let us know, soon. CBR (See especially, 2nd paragraph, 7th line). There were a number of RUTLEDGE families in the very early 1800's living in Jackson County, TN (White County by some later records), many of whom lived on Blackburn's Fork of Roaring River. (The rest lived just over the ridgeon Morrison's Creek).

This would probably be a fruitful area for some of you who have Lost RUTLEDGE's in Tennessee. As a shortcut, I suggest the book BUILDING NEIGHBORHOODS, JACKSON COUNTY, TN PRIOR TO 1820 by Betty Hugg Bryant. This book is made up of abstracts of the Early Land Records in the Jackson/(part of)White County, TN area. They are taken from the Tennessee State Archives.

This book is of value to those of us researching Jackson County, TN as it is a burned county. A great number of people connected with RUTLEDGE are mentioned at various times on this list can be found entered in these early records.

There has been some discussion of the middle names of James Rutledge's (Ann Rutledge of Lincoln fame's father) children. All the surnames represented in those children can be found in abundance in a small geographical area of Tennessee between Gainsboro and Sparta. (Actually within a much smaller area than than). These names include Miller, Mayes, Hamilton,Cameron, Armstrong, Anderson and Blackburn.

The name Brannon isn't present in large numbers but Matilda Rutledge (widow? on the 1820 Jackson, TN census) who was the mother of my Benjamin Rutledge (and of the William Rutledge who migrated from White County, TN up to Fulton County, IL) had several Brannon's listed as heirs to her Estate when she died in 1844 in Barry County, MO (Matilda Davison at the time of her death).

A few examples from the book which might interest some of you: Rec.Book 54, pg. 56, Rec.#127 Spring Creek of Roaring River...nearly west from where Elijah Chishom now lives...17 Feb 1803 (There are a number of entries for Elijah Chisum under various spellings) Is this the Elijah Chisum who is listed on the 1811 on tax list of White County, TN? Was this the same Elijah Chisum (or his father) who owned the land next to John Rutledge and a William Rutledge in White County, TN prior to 1830 (Calf Killer Creek). This land is also tied in with Henry Rutledge. (NOTE: Charles Leonard believed that (one of the several) William and Henry Rutledge were grandsons of Elijah Chisum (their mother was a Chisum?). )

hen John Rutledge died in White County, TN buyers at his Estate (1828) included, James Rutledge, Henry Rutledge, Mrs Anne Rutledge and (apparently) two William Rutledges. This John Rutledge was a miller (owned a mill). He is apparently the same John Rutledge who earlier owned a mill on a branch of Blackburn's Fork of Roaring River in Jackson County, TN (called Rutledge's Mill Creek in some of the records) Some of you might be interested in : Rec.Book 54, pg.83,Rec#183 James Officer (purchase) 400 acres ..Lick Creek of Roaring River... 11 Jul 1803 (This entry calls James Officer by name, others simply refer to him as Old Man Officer) This is James Officer the son of the Thomas Officer (who died in Cumberland County, PA) for whom all the Rutledge's named their sons ___ Officer Rutledge. (His address is given in a Power of Attorney in the Inventory of his father, Thomas Officer's will as Jas. Officer of Tennessee, Jackson County...1806)

There are several references to an early William Rutledge and one to a Susanna Rutledge. They were also near Roaring River. (NOTE: The parents of James McGrady Rutledge, William and Susannah Cameron Rutledge, were said to have lived in Tennessee ca 1820. Does anyone know if this is them? William was a brother of James Rutledge, father of Ann Rutledge) Some members of the CAMERON family which was connected to James Rutledge (father of Ann Rutledge) were also in these early records and later in White County, TN, it would probably be worth checking to see how Benjamin Blackburn tied into all this.

Pulled some of my books out this evening and found the following and thought I'd send it along, hoping it will help some you. #218. (154-55) Barclay McGhee to Henry M. Rutledge of Charleston, S.C. 25 August 1807, 27 August 1807, $3000, 400 ac. within the lands to which the Indian title is not yet extinquished on north side of Tenn. River. Grant # 830 from State of N.C., adj. John Cowan, Nine Mile Creek. Wit:Enoch Parsens, George Ewing.
Apparently this Henry Rutledge and a George Rutledge both from S.C. had numerous dealings in the land around here in Blount Co. I have seen their names and place of residence on several different occasions. Does anyone know who these two men belong too.? I figure they are either brothers or father and son- will check some more records later and see if I can come up with any information on one or both of them. BTW, the John Cowan mentioned above is another of my lines. Hope this is of interest to someone.

Don and everyone,

Wiley B. Rutledge, father of US Supreme Court Justice Wiley Blount Rutledge, Jr, was the youngest son of Thomas Rutledge and Jane Hall Pope Rutledge. The Wiley being discussed was the Supreme Court Justice, Wiley B. - Thomas's grandson. He wrote a couple of letters to relatives in which he gave family genealogy information as best he remembered it. Unfortunately, it wasn't totally accurate.

As in all cases in genealogy, the burden of proof is on the recipient of the information, not on the source. We are all fallable and people remember things differently based upon the age and circumstances of the person doing the remembering. Stories we heard as a child aren't always remembered correctly as we age.

I know that's true for me and other people that I know so I have to believe I'm normal in that regard. I've got back again and again to my mother to verify what I believe happened when I was young and find that the details are often slightly different or the person in question was not who I thought they were.

Does anyone claim Zolliecoffer Rutledge? If he is a brickwall, you may want to explore a site on the web re: Brig. Gen. Felix K. Zolliecoffer 1812-1862. If you go to the site, under his photo is a box to click on - Zollie's folly which tells of the Civil War battle in which General George Crittenden and his men ended up on the wrong side of the Cumberland River. Crittenden wrote that he was threatened by a superior force of the enemy in front and finding it impossible to cross the river, I will have to make the fight on the ground I now occupy. He had under his command, 4,000 men in 2 brigades.

The First Brigade was commanded by Brig. Gen. Felix K. Zollicoffer. A part of this brigade was: Rutledge's battery of four guns, under Capt. A.M. RUTLEDGE. Do any of you claim A.M. Rutledge? Is he in Rachel's family? Whats the chance he named a son Zolliecoffer? (We've often wondered if our Fountain Rutledge b.1796 KY, was named for Major James Fountain from Kentucky , hero of the Indian Wars, who died several years before our Fountain was born... there is a John Rutledge involved with him that we cannot prove or disprove to be part of our family.)


Zolliecoffer William Zol RUTLEDGE (1868-1937) is a son of Richard Kine RUTLEDGE (1845-1891) and wife Mary Jane Mollie NORMAN (1843-1867). Mollie had been previously married to Ephriam Goldsmith KNIGHT, who was killed in the Civil War, and by whom she had two daughters.

Richard Kine was a son of Emanuel RUTLEDGE, my ancestor.

I'm somewhat confident Capt. A. M. RUTLEDGE is Arthur Middleton RUTLEDGE (1817-1876), who m/1 Elizabeth UNDERWOOD, and m/2 Marie ADAMS. He descends from the SC RUTLEDGEs.

Received my copy of Families of Hawkins County Tennessee 1786-1994 today and have to admit that I am very disappointed in what I can find about my husbands Chesnutt line. With so many of them from there I have found only two references, one of which is not on the page as stated in the index. Or if he is I can't find him! However there is a lot of Rutledge information. I will post a few of the Rutledge names Wilson, Emanuel, Richard Baxter, Thomas K., Robert J., Richard Kine, James William, Stephen W., and Zolliecoffer William Zol. I would offer to do lookups but have to warn you the index only gives the last name Rutledge with 14 pages sited. That does not mean that they are mentioned only on those pages however, it means that is where the article starts. Would recommend this book to people who know they have Hawkins County Rutledge relatives. Nancy


Hello, Nancy,

It's unfortunate there were so few stories in Families which told of your husband's Chesnut (var. sp.) line.

I hope you realize the way these books are created. People, such as yourself, submit the stories to be included. Neither the printer the publisher, or for that matter, does anyone else have the information to required to generate a story on any family. If no one submits, nothing is printed.

Regarding the page listing, the following statement found on page 647 at the beginning of the index should suffice:

The following family names can be found one or more times in the story(s) which begin on the page(s) listed.

For anyone interested, the Hawkins County Genealogical Historical Society is preparing to print a second volume of stories on families with any known connection to Hawkins Co. TN. I suggest you do so promptly, as they plan to cut off submittals on April 30.

For more information, visit HCGHS' website:

Hello, Edna,

The time frame and location right, and the person is likely the same.
I speak of Henry Middleton Rutledge (1775-1844), son of Edward (1749-1800), often called Edward the Signer as he signed the Declaration of Independence.
Henry Middleton Rutledge (1775-1844) married Septima Sexta Middleton (1783-1865). They moved to Middle Tennessee and managed the property along the Elk River, which Edward's brother John received as a result of Revolutionary War activities, then sold to Edward. This strongly suggests Henry was also involved in land transactions in East Tennessee. Incidentally, if I recall correctly from the few early deeds I have seen, $7.50 per acre in those days was exceptionally high. A dollar an acre was more likely the norm, and when you include the fact title to this was unsettled, it is phenominal. As for George, I can't place him, but he is likely related to Henry.
Best wishes,
Darryl


Wiley Blount Rutledge, Jr. was born 20 Jul 1894 in Cloverport KY and died 10 Sep 1949 in York Co. ME. He is buried in Green Mountain Cemetery in Boulder Co. CO.
He was an attorney, teacher, dean, and US Supreme Court justice. He was appointed to the court by FDR.
He married on 28 Aug 1917 in Buncombe Co. NC to Annabel Person. She taught Greek at Maryville College, where I think they met. I think they had 3 children.
Wiley Blount Rutledge Sr. was born 21 Oct 1861 in Bledsoe Co. TN, and died 6 Jul 1944.
He was a circuit-riding minister. He m/1 Mary Lou Wigginton ca. 1893 in Bullitt Co. KY. They had at least 3 children, Wiley Jr. being the eldest.
After Mary Lou's death, Wiley Sr. remarried Tamsey Cordelia Cate, and they had at least 3 children.
Wiley Sr. was one of the youngest children of Thomas Rutledge (ca. 1803 VA - 1870) and Thomas' third wife Jane Hall, who was previously married to a Pope. I'm not sure, but I think Wiley Sr. was likely the youngest.
Best wishes,
Darryl


Hi Don and Everyone!

This is such an interesting letter, Don! Thanks for sharing it! Bill has about got to be a cousin, doesn't he? I'll admit, I haven't been able to figure out just how yet. I do have a Martin correspondant who has a Henry line in TN tho... I think I'll send the data to her and just see if she might be able to shed any light on this family. Will certainly pass it along to you if she can add anything.

Dear Giles Countians,

Here I am up in Franklin, Tenn., trying to figure out where I came from. :) . No, I was raised in Lewisburg, but I have recently discovered that my Massey ancestors MAY have been some of the earliest settlers of your truly beautiful Giles County. You have every right to be proud of it.

As you know, southwestern Marshall Co. was northeastern Giles Co. until 1871. I am searching for an inhabitant of that area. His name was JOHN MASSEY (1789? - 1858). His wife was MARY HENRY MASSEY with about the same dates.

His children include DRURY MASSEY, who married ELEANOR HAYNES of Giles Co. and who moved to Lauderdale Co. around 1840;
ELIZA MASSEY, who married JOHN C. DARE and moved to Arkansas; JOSEPH H. MASSEY of Arkansas;
JAMES H. MASSEY (m. a Coble?) of Missouri;
LEROY F. MASSEY of Giles/Marshall Cos.;

Wiley Blount Rutledge, Jr. was born 20 Jul 1894 in Cloverport KY and
died 10 Sep 1949 in York Co. ME. He is buried in Green Mountain Cemetery
in Boulder Co. CO.

He was an attorney, teacher, dean, and US Supreme Court justice. He was
appointed to the court by FDR.

He married on 28 Aug 1917 in Buncombe Co. NC to Annabel Person. She
taught Greek at Maryville College, where I think they met. I think they
had 3 children.

Wiley Blount Rutledge Sr. was born 21 Oct 1861 in Bledsoe Co. TN, and
died 6 Jul 1944.

He was a circuit-riding minister. He m/1 Mary Lou Wigginton ca. 1893 in
Bullitt Co. KY. They had at least 3 children, Wiley Jr. being the
eldest.

After Mary Lou's death, Wiley Sr. remarried Tamsey Cordelia Cate, and
they had at least 3 children.

Wiley Sr. was one of the youngest children of Thomas Rutledge (ca. 1803
VA - 1870) and Thomas' third wife Jane Hall, who was previously married
to a Pope. I'm not sure, but I think Wiley Sr. was likely the youngest.

Best wishes,

Hi again.

Just looked at GenForum and found a query Jackson Middleton Rutledge dated
Oct 17, 1998, and was posted by Phil Eaton.

It mentions that he married Sary Lucy Singleton.

Is this the family you are looking for?

Hello, Carrie,

Although researching all TN Rutledges, I don't yet have any info on the
above family.

I have about 150 John Rutledges in my index, and if you include middle
names and/or initials, another 200.

What birth and death dates (approximate beats nothing), and what
locations do you have for John, Sarah, and Leathy Ann?

What info do you have on any other children, or other info which will
distinguish this John Rutledge from others?

Best wishes,

Here is the birth information and where I got it. I had been told Dudley

William 21 M Mississippi
John 19 M Mississippi
Iverson 16 M Mississippi

I have no personal interest to prove or disprove anything regarding the
Charleston Rutledges. I'm joining in because I enjoy reading the Rutledge
Digest and can't stay away from temptation because it won't stay away from me.
I tend to lean toward Darryl's view. I realize that just because something
is printed doesn't mean it's true, BUT, the secondary materials I have read
say that both Edward and John were granted land in Tennesee for their service
to the new nation. Perhaps the land John received was contiguous with
Edward's. When Edward died in 1800 he had recouped some of his economic
losses from crop failures, stalled trade with England, and giving up his law
practice for politics. His heirs were daughter Sara and son Henry. Any
other heirs would surely have come forward or been brought forward when the
estate was settled. Records at Middleton Place pertaining to the history of
Henry's wife Septima Middleton have it that in 1816, Major Rutledge (Henry)
and Septima left their plantation on the Ashley River (and that the Major
gave up his law practice ) to move to the undeveloped land in TN which was
75,000 acres. They had 5 children then. They took twenty wagons of
furniture, food, clothing, books and a musical instrument (Septima's harp),
twelve cows, and 50 slaves. A plantation house was built at Chilhowee and
called Rutledge Place. In 1817 their last child was born there, Arthur
Middleton. In 1820 they moved to a 20 acre estate in Nashville, and were
prominent in that city for the rest of their lives.
Two of their daughters married Charleston men and moved back there: Henrietta
married her cousin Frederick Rutledge and Emma married her cousin Daniel
Blake. Major Henry died in 1844. When Septima died in 1865, she was
survived by daughter Mary who had married Francis Fogg, a Nashville lawyer,
sons Henry and Arthur and sixteen grandchildren. Most of their descendants
live in So. Carolina, Alabama and Kentucky, (according to the Middleton Place
records). ------------------------

Yours truly, Keith Rutledge, not likely to be descended from any prominent or famous Rutledges, but rather from a pack of westward roaming, footloose, hand-to-mouth,
smart-mouthed, freedom loving, hard to tie down, English-Irish-Scotch Irish,
Scots.



Edna: I do not know if this ties into you line or not, but it looks possible.
I have a lot more if this works.

FIRST GENERATION ------------------------------------------------------------------------ 1. William Rutledge (1) was born in Jun 1756 in Carlisle, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania. He appeared on the census in 1790 in Wilkes County, North Carolina. (2) He sold 320 acres on the middle fork of Brier Creek on 19 May 1790 in Wilkes County, North Carolina.(3) He owned stock mark: a crop off right ear swallow fork on left on 24 Nov 1807 in Maury County, Tennessee.(4) He appeared on the census in 1820 in Maury County, Tennessee.

Good Morning!

It seems the Rutledge line is not so busy today. Could someone please help me with a problem?

I'm researching the Rutledge/Ratledge lines. I can't seem to find out who the mother of MARY POLLY MASSEY RATLEDGE was. She was married to BENJAMIN RATLEDGE, Greene County, Tennessee, early 1800's.

Her father was STEPHEN MASSEY. She had some brothers: Henry, William, John and probably more in 1842.

Any help or comments would be appreciated.
Thank you for your time.

John littlered@sprintmail.com


Hi John, This is my Ratledge line through Daddy. Neither have I been able to discover the name of Marys mother. Just knowing theres someone else out there researching the same line is good news to me. It'll give me more incentive to try and find the mother of Mary Polly Massey. will try to get to the library tomorrow for more research on this subject. If you have any luck on Marys mother, please let me know and I'll do the same . Thanks and have a good week-end. Edna

Hi Edna and those of you who are researching MARY POLLY MASSEY RATLEDGE: Mary's dad STEPHEN MASSEY was born on the Isle of Nantucket in the year 1761. He and his family were Quakers. When Stephen was ten years old his family moved to Gilford County, North Carolina. He married when he was 20 years old. His father was also named Stephen and his mother was MERCY ALLEN.

At the time people didn't like the Quakers very much so they moved on into Greene County, Tennessee. From the yearly tax book of Greene County (1804 through 1866) the Masseys and the RUTLEDGES lived in the tax district Number 5.

From the 1840 list: Henry Massey; Stephen Massey; Thomas Rutledge; Benjamin Rutledge; Asberry Rutledge.

From the 1841 list: Benjamin Rutledge; Stephen Massey; Thomas Rutledge - (district 8)

From the 1842 list: William Massey; Henry Massey; Stephen Massey; Benjamin Rutledge

From the 1843 list: William Massey; Henry Massey; John Massey; Stephen Massey; Benjamin Rutledge; Asberry Rutledge

From the 1844 list: Benjamin Rutledge

From the 1845 and the 1846 lists: No Rutledges No Masseys

From the 1847 list: William Massey; John Massey; Stephen Massey (had 120 acres) No Rutledges These are on the LDS film #94445. Notice the spelling RUTLEDGE, not RATLEDGE. At the bottom I have written Solomon Massey, son of Stephen is buried in the Armstrong Cemetery near Madisonville, Tennessee. It seems that Stephen Massey moved to Madison County, Tennessee, the same year the Ratledge's moved to Tillico Plains, Tennessee. The Ratledge's stayed but the Massey's seem to have gone back to Greene County, Tennessee. If we can find the name of Mary Polly Massey Ratledge's mother, I have the Massey's info back to the late 1600's.

My records are from The History of Nantucket Volume II by Alexander Starbuck, and also from Massey Families in America by Judge Frank A. Massey, Judge of the Circuit Court, Fort Worth, Texas 76102, and many more reliable sources. Edna, I also have the court records of your ancestor (Catherine Ratledge Moses) receiving land from Mary and Benjamin Ratledge, and will be happy to send that to you if you email me your snail mail address. I am sending this to the list in hopes that there might be someone else out there who is also researching these names. Thank you for your time. John littlered@sprintmail.com


OK....everyone welcome Catharine. Looks like another tough case to solve.

I'm totally new to this amazed by it all! Sort of stumbled into the
Rutledge family page.
At any rate, my grandmother, Katharine Holland Rutledge Davis (1893-1986),
always told me our ancestral line went back to EDWARD RUTLEDGE, signer of
the Declaration. But I never got the details don't know that she knew
them all. Her father was HENRY CLAY RUTLEDGE (1846-1935; Tennessee). So
there's a gap in there if anyone can help me fill it in, I'd be ever so
grateful!

Thank you for the information. I believe the Johnson Rutledge who married in IN was Johnson's son. Early History of Giles Co. states that John and William Rutlege and Joel Rutledge were early settlers of the county in 1807. From the way it was written, I believe William was Johnson's unmarried son. Johnson died sometime before 1821. In his estate settlement, his heirs are listed as Joel, William, Absalom, Johnson, Elijah (deceased), Elizabeth and Polly McKedy. All except Joel had removed to IN by 1821. A receipt for the transfer of Johnson 2's share of the estate was witnessed by John B. Rutledge and Elzey Rutledge. That is the only evidence I have of John B. being in Giles Co. before 1836 and I assume he was part of this family. John Boles and Elzey may have been Joel's sons but the Boles name is still a mystery. Joel married Susan West in NC.
I have not been able to connect the early TN Rutledges with this family but still hope to do so.

That is why I was curious about Johnson's sisters.
Hello Jean, and hello to all Rutledge mailing list members.
I just joined the mailing list and saw your message regarding unfiled papers resources for Civil War veterans.

My late uncle Bill Rutledge of Enid, Oklahoma did a considerable amount of Rutledge research and determined that his grandfather, William C. Rutledge served as an officer in the Rutledge Rifles CSA artillery battery. This unit was formed in Nashville at the beginning of the war and fought with distinction in a number of battles, including Shiloh. From what I have been able to determine, the roster for this unit seems to have been destroyed or lost during the war. Available records I have found are fragmentary, although the TN State Library and Archives have an old picture of the Rutledge Rifles officers and apparently have a list of the names and ranks of the 11 men in the picture. Arthur Middleton Rutledge, the battery commander, is also in the picture seated 2nd from the left. My great grandfather is seated 3rd from the left. His resemblence to members of my family (including me!) is striking.
Does anyone have any information for me on William C. Rutledge? Also, does anyone have information on William G. Rutledge (1826-after 1898) from Sullivan County, TN? My uncle believed that he served in the CSA, too, and there is a TN CSA farrier (horse-master) of that name in the official rosters.
Any help would be much appreciated.

Living in/around Greenville Co., SC early in 1800s, d bef 1830 when Matilda was shown as head of household in Jackson Co., TN. I don't know if Thomas moved to TN with the rest of the family or not.

Thanks for all you help. Lynda


Kathye.... I've been looking for add'l data on the James Rutledge you listed Civil War info on... What I've found is very sketchy.... In a book by Kathryn Owen, of Winchester, Clark Co., KY titled Civil War Days in Clark County, page 78... she writes: James Rutledge....enlisted October 1, 1862, at the age of sixty-two years. Was in Co. A., 11th Ky. Cavalry, Morgan's command. Was in prison at Camp Douglas for six months. Was honorably discharged about 1865. In addition she lists a John Rutledge of Clark Co. also. John Rutledge...Enlisted July 1862 in Cassells' Company, 2nd Ky. Cavalry, Morgan's command. Was honorably discharged April 1865. Most of her info came, I think, from the Clark County Chronicles Newspaper. I long thought these may be the sons of John and Valentine Rutledge of Clark Co. However, if the Owens info is correct, the James she lists as 62 in 1862 would be ten years older than James, the son of John and Valentine. Course, there is no shortage of James and Johns in Clark Co at this time, so its very possible my attempt to tie them to John and Valentine is in error... Did the geocities list any add'l clues re: pension info, etc? I've not been able to locate any at the KY State Archives. If you see more, I'd like to hear.... thanks for posting the URL....

Well, it must be time to return to researching my Rutledge families! I found the following marriage listed on the Bledsoe County marriage records page, part of the GenWeb project: MILLER, Jessie H. married RUTLEGE, Nancy J. [date] 25 Sep, 1850 [source] Certificate contributed by Evelyn Grimes I am thinking (hoping) this is our Nancy Rutledge, the daughter of Thomas Rutledge and sister to my ggg-grandfather, Stephen W. Rutlege. I had been told our Nancy married a Mr. Miller, but had not been able to find out his name or what happened to them after she left home. In the letters Pearl Rutledge wrote, she mentioned they went to MO with Steven and his 2 other brothers, which we have yet to determine the identity of. Does anyone have anything further on this Nancy Jessie Miller? Kathye

The following is abstracted from the pension file of William Rutledge for service during the War of 1812, and posted in the hope it may be of interest to anyone working on Rutledges of TN or IN. File Brief: War of 1812: Soldier: William Rutledge, Widow: Sarah Rutledge, Service: Quarter Master of Col. Lillard's Regt., Tenn. Mil. Enlisted: Oct, 14, 1813 Discharged: Feb. 8, 1814, Bounty Land: #'s 92984-40-50 and 47240-120-55, Residence of Soldier: Hawkins Co. TN.in 1855, Residence of Widow: Near Fort Branch, Gibson Co., IN., in 1871, Maiden Name of Widow: Sarah Simms, Marriage of Soldier and Widow: In Tenn. Date not stated (More info below) Death of Soldier: After 1855, near Fort Branch, Gibson Co., IN. Supplemental Affidavit: Dated 7th day of April, 1871, Gibson Co., IN Sarah Rutledge, widow of William Rutledge who was a soldier in the War of 1812, on her oath says, that she is now old, and her memory is greatly impaired, that she is now unable to give the date of her marriage to her late husband William Rutledge or the date of his enlistment or discharge, or any further particulars as to his military service than is stated in her appllication for a pension herewith presented. She is however able to make this explanation, that at the time her said husband entered the army in the War of 1812, she had had three children by him. Subequent to their marriage, the youngest of which was an infant. Her husband served three months, and he came home after his discharge in the month of June, and the fall following, they removed from Tennessee to the territory of Indiana. She knows that her said husband drew his land warrants for the service aforesaid, or she drew them after his death and as to the date of her husbands enlistment she can state that the war did not terminate for about six months after his discharge, possibly nearly a year. Signed: Sarah Rutledge, her mark Attest: Stephen W. Mead and J.J. Rutchett (The comment by Sarah that her husband was discharged in June is a little confusing, since the Army Auditor states he was discharged in Feb. Possibly she just was confused, or his discharge was in Feb, but he didn't get home until June....in any event, it appears they moved to IN that Fall) Add'l Affidavit: Dated August 31, 1871 We Ezekiel Bonen and Jesse Douglass of Gibson County, Indiana on oath say.... attest they knew William and Sarah, he served in the War, etc. They continue..we further say that the said William Rutledge departed this life about the month of December, 1850, the exact time of his death we are unable to give, but that he did die about the time specified we well know, for we attended his funeral.

The Grainger County Library in Rutledge, Tenn. now has a Canon Microfilm Reader and Printer with a Coin Meter so all you genealogy researchers can copy records that are on microfilm in the library. The Grainger County Heritage Book Committee came together more than two years ago merely as acquaintances with Graninger County roots and certainly with no plans of it becoming a money making project. What evolved was the publication of Grainger County, Tenn. and Its People, 1796-1998. The sales of the book were overwhelming and we accrued a sizeable profit. As we worked with the people who submitted articles, we became aware of the condition of the records in our own county. It was a unanimous decision of the committee to help the people with roots here to access the records. In December 1998, we made a proposal to the city of Rutledge to use space in the Nance House for a library of county records using our money to aid in that project. To this date we do not know the status of that proposal. However, we made the decision to go ahead and purchase the Microfilm Reader and Printer as a part of this project for the Rutledge Library. This equipment will enable all interested people and genealogist to both view and print copies of county records on film in the library. Most of the records that are in the old school building are on microfilm in the library - Deaths, Deeds, Marriages, Court Records, etc. Library hours are Monday 9:00 AM - 7:00 PM, Wednesday and Friday 9:00 - 5:00 PM. The Court House in Rutledge is closed Wednesday afternoons. We hope you continue to enjoy the book and now the access to more of the County Records by using this equipment. The Grainger County Heritage Book Committee Louise Murphy, Sec./Treas.

Hello, Pam, I haven't checked out the Rutledge lands in neighboring Greene Co. All Elk River entries are for several thousand acres awarded to John Rutledge, who later sold them to his brother Edward, who had his son Henry Middleton Rutledge manage it for him. As I've mentioned before, the Elk River land was part of the frontier, and John evidentally considered it too much a bother to be worth his time, so he sold it to Edward. Darryl
