Hi yaw'll:We're searching for the lost tribes of RUTLEDGE- EDWARDS- SHELTON . We found several of these in Virginia but when we got there they were gone, and didn't leave a forwarding address. Seriously ,we have these lines back to England, Wales. The RUTLEDGE line is the only one we can'tplace . We draw a blank with William RUTLEDGE in Rockingham Co. ,Vir. in 1810. All the lines end up in Southern Illinois. They usually come in through Kentucky. We live in West Texas, which is a right smart piece from the old family farms in Illinois. However we still have lots of kin folks back there.Give us a" holler" if we can help you ,or vice versa. We havequite a large data base on these surnames.
