Segis Pamplin Rutherford is not a direct ancestor of my husband so I don't know much.At one time I got interested in her and made some scratchy notes which aren't even in order.Let me see if I can give you anything.
Segis (also spelled Segus) and Peter Rutherford were married 27-Dec-1823 in Nelson Co,VA.Bondsman was William Pamplin.From somewhere I picked up that they had 3 children: Peter, Anne, Mary.
26-Feb-1844 Segis qualified as administrator for Peter's estate.He had 22 slaves.Slaves and personal property were valued at $7334.50 in March 1844.(Nelson Co. Will Book F, pp. 445 & 459.)
Peter ran an ordinary.The first date I have for his getting a license is 28-Jun-1830.(Will Book D, p. 30)But I think he may have been running the ordinary before then.AFter his death Segis got a license to run an ordinary and continued to renew the license for some years; I don't know how long.I have a note that she is in the 1870 census, but I have never looked her up.
On 29-Sep-1837 a grand jury in Nelson Co made "presentments against William H. Tyler, John N.(?) Pamplin, Joseph Kyle, Otis Westcott, Patrick H. Hickok, Archibald Pamplin, William A. Payne, Richard Powell, and Robert Pamplin for unlawfully playing at cards at the Buffalo Ridge Springs in the County of Nelson, kept by Peter Rutherford..." I have a xeroxed copy of this grand jury action which I will send you if you wish and if you will send your mailing adress.
In my notes I have references to wills of two Rutherfords - G.W. and Samuel J.But I have never looked them up.I will do so the next time I get to the Library of Virginia, but it may not be until January.
