I have begun researching the Rutledge family. Most of the family has lived in the Iowa, Nebraska, Illinois, and Missouri areas since at least the middle of the 19th century. My grandfather was born in Mononia County Iowa in 1880. I have not been able to find out any information on his parents beyond their names. He was born to Cynthia Hutchenson and Thomas W. Rutledge. Around the turn of the century my grandfather moved to Missouri. He met his wife and was married in Troy Missouri. Sometime after that he moved to Nebraska.
I am hoping to contact someone who may have some information to assist me in my search.
