Rutledge Genealogy Update

I have been working on a new page for the oldest Rutledge generation in our line in Missouri.  I do not have any confirmed lines going into North Carolina, but I believe the information is out there to go back further.

You will see I have had some trouble on locations, although they are all in the same vicinity.  I remember when I first started collecting this genealogy information, but not really studying it as I am now, learning that the Rutledge first settled in Richwoods, Missouri.  I have repeated that information verbally.  It is not totally untrue, but this page will explain locations. Frances did die in Richwoods at the home of her son.

I have been to the cemetery in Richwoods years ago and will have to dig out my old photos some day and put the stones together with names on pages.

I am delighted to find documentation back to 1830! This James Rutledge ancestor was born about 1790 in North Carolina.

The previous email shared one generation down, George Rutledge.
I am going to begin working on a new page for the next generation down in our line, George and Rosine's son, James Bernard.

I have also been spending time since last Saturday going through boxes and boxes of Rutledge genealogy and photos organizing them. There were some delightful finds that I will one day be able to share, but we are blessed with so much it will take me a while to get around to scanning it all in and organizing it to share.

 I hope to begin, with the help of my husband, scanning in all the photos as a project this winter. Scanning photos seems to be a good winter project when stuck indoors.  It has always been my intent to scan in all the family photos and label them digitally to give to family members.  I have thousands of photos scanned in on my Mom's side of the family, but not labeled digitally yet, and more photos on that side to scan in yet.  This Rutledge photo project this winter will be my first attempt at beginning my Dad's side of the family.  It is truly a huge undertaking.

Have a great week and enjoy reading!
