Hello Carol
So nice to speak with you. You are living right in the middle of much of the Rutherford Family History. I am originally from Illinois and the Rutherford line is from my mothers side.

See what you think about the following:

I show the Joseph Rutherford that married Elizabeth Elliott was the son of Robert Rutherford (Jr) & Margaret Vawter the father of Archibald et. al.

The Larkin Rutherford that married Rachel Morgan was the son of John
Rutherford and Violetta Rennolds/Reynolds.

The Larkin Rutherford that married Margaret Peggy Hamilton is my
Great, Great, Great, Great, Great Grandfather who first married
Nancy Ogle who died without issue. He returned home to his family
in Lincoln, KY where courted and married Margaret Peggy who was the
mother of four of his children, William Larkin (Jr), John, Mary Polly and
Nancy.

Margaret died from some unknown cause and he remarried Marrianne Davis who bore him another son, James Larkin. Margaret also died
and he married for the last time to Susan Green whom he widowed in
1813. She remarried Thomas Newton Gillham, Jr.

Benjamin Rutherford was listed as a tithable in 1771 in Botetourt County, Virginia, with his father, John Rutherford, Sr. and his brothers John, William and Joseph. (The Virginia Genealogist, vol. 10, 1966, p. 144.) In 1774 Benjamin participated in Lord Dunmore's War, ranging on the frontier from Upper Station from 26 September until 1 October (Virginia Colonial Militia 1651-1776, vol. 2, 1905, p. 80.) In the militia under Capt. Robert Doack he accompanied an expedition to Point Pleasant. (History of Southwest Virginia 1746-1786, 1903, p. 887.) In Montgomery County, Virginia, 13 September 1777 the oath of allegiance was administered to Benjamin, Joseph, and John Rutherford, brothers. (Fincastle and Montogmery Cos. Revolutionary War Records, 1775-1788, p. 139, Courthouse, Christiansburg, VA.)

I was very surprised to learn that Mary Simpson was only 16 year old when
she married 97 year old John Rutherford and that she may have been a widow.
Could not find her family or where . I had her born in 1694 in Essex, VA and
that she died about 1761 In Newberry County, South Carolina. At that age I had
assumed that Simpson was her widowed name and if she had any children they were all grown. (So much for that!)

I have no idea who Susanna Lighfoots parents are. I haven’t found Williams wife
Elizabeth las name or parents either. Same for James Kenley.

I have Margaret Peggy Hamilton nee Ramsey as the sister of Larkin Ramsey and
their parent as William Ramsey and Agnes Black of Beverly Manor, Augusta, VA.

If you ever can find out the name of Joseph Rutherford wife I will join you in dancing in the streets but here in Hemet, CA.

Hi i was born about ten miles from where the Logans Fort was Mary Ann Simpson was only 16 when they married.I saw someone had her as a Ramsey. She had no children.The story that was passed down to me was that her family had been killed..I have found no record of another marriage.After his death she may have remarried. Williams wife Elizabeth was supposed to have been a cousin,Julius married Rhoda his Cousin/Julius son Jacob Married his cousin Elizabeth Settled Wayne Co Ky James Kenly was probably botn in Va and came to Ky with the Family. James Reynolds and Susanna Lightfoot believe that they were in Va I was told that Violetta was almost a full blooded Indian/and she passed on to her family all the things she had learned from the indiands.How true i do not know.The first place the Rutherfords lived was on Green River Called The Rutherford Cabins You might want to look into The Papers of Benjamin Logan. Locted at The Filson Club Louisville KyWish i had answers but i do not Hope this helps Carol
