Thomas Rutherford Frederick Co. Va
Hi everyone , this is my first post to this board.
I am looking for any information on a Thomas Rutherford of Frederick County Virginia mid to late 1700's.
LDS 0831279 Orphan Court Record Berkeley Co. VA 1772-1792
1778 May 15, p. 418 Ordered that Church Warden Bind Richard Lock orphan of
Richard Lock desc to Thos Rutherford till he comes of age, he being nine
years on the 19th of April last who is to learn to read, write & cyphear.
Thomas Rutherford is some how related to Capt. Robert Rutherford and Reuben Rutherford.
I have thought for some time that there was a kinship between my Lock(e)'s and the Rutherford family and this source makes me that much more sure there has to be a kinship but I can not find anything linking my Lock's to the Rutherford's.
Other related friends/family's of my Lock's :
Shirley / Shurley , Avis , Davis , Worthingham
It seems pretty clear that my Lock's came from St. Mary's County Maryland and Calvert County Maryland proir to moving to Virginia.
Thanks in advance for any help in linking my Lock's to the Rutherford's :)

John Rutherford 1689-1789
I may have my research wrong but I have John b. 1689 as the brother of Thomas Hugh Rutherford. Isn't their father Robert Jr. born 1663 Rappannock Co., Virginia March 12, 1725 Essex Co married Margaret Vawter? If you have his history I'm interested. I am related to John Rutherford b. 1689 on my father's line. Thanks!
If you will send me your e mail I will forward some information that might be of firstname.lastname@example.org
