Rutledge Genealogy

Rutledge is my maiden name and I am a descendant of James Rutledge Sr. and Frances Skaggs.
I always welcome help in adding information to our Rutledge lines.

Patriarch Genealogists

I wish to thank William D. Rutledge and John D. Rutledge for their avid research on this line over the last 50 years.

THE BELOW IS A COPY from a very old website when I used a different format. I thought I would leave it here for now. I have changed to the new format of writing chronological biographies for each generation.

My great grandma lived in Rutledge MO and we used to go visit her every summer. Her name was Allie Bell (her previous surname was McMurray) She was married to Adolphus McMurray. My great grandma passed away in 1970 at the age of 95. I believe she lived in Rutledge most of her life so that would have been from approximately 1875-1970. I remember the town seemed to being dying when I was a child and I am trying to see what has become of Rutledge. She was a great inspirational person to me. She had a farm outside of Rutledge near Memphis which I believe my mother still has a farmer farming for her. Thank you for your time....Sheila

Maybe I should try to make a web site for my line of Rutledge's. My Rutledge came from County Tyrone - Ireland about 1820-30's to the usa. Check- Rutledge DNA, to see me listed. May you find your missing link. George Rutledge
