The Rushton family originated in England. My father was the first generation to emigrate to the U.S.As a result the bulk of the family information must come from sources in England. I have been able to trace the Rushton family back five generations. However, I would like to confirm some of the information that I have and also of course expand on the information available. The family was from the Burton-on Trent area in England. I am also interested in researching my wife's family. I have information tracing my wife's family back to the mid 1700's in Virginia. However, this information is by word of mouth and I do not have any backup data. Her data is on her mother's side and started as the Taylor family from Licking, Missouri.
