I'm looking for the father of my gggrandfather, Issac Newton Rutter in PA. The name stopped me in my tracks! I haven't found anyone in PA yet, but that is where he hailed from, b. 1820. Your Martin may have been related but when and how is conjecture. I'll keep an eye out for your names while I search. J.

I am descended from early settler Conrad Rutter, first of Germantown, PA then Lancaster County, PA. I do not have my info in front of me at this time but I do know that the the Lancaster Historical Society has good info on Rutters (especially Rutter family folder). I will look at what I have and see if I can help you.

Debbie,
Sorry to take so long getting back to you - I only have e-mail at work. If you would send me an e-mail with your address I would be happy to share what I have with you. I am curious, do you believe you may descended from Conrad Rutter? There is a great historical marker near Intercourse PA put up by the Rutter Family Association. If you live within driving distance, I could tell you how to get there. Hope to hear from you soon!

Surnames: Rutter, Backer, Douglas, Pastorius, Simson
Conrad Rutter was my g...g grandfather. I'm concerned about a contradication between the Wyoming & Lackawanna Valleys, Pennsylvania Genealogies & Family Histories (dated 1906) info which said his wife's name was Jane Douglas. The Biographical Annals of Lancaster County (dated 1903) go even farther and mention he married her in England and they came to America w/ Francis Daniel Pastorius in 8/30/1683 landing in Germantown, PA. It also lists him as one of the origianl 13 founders of Germantown The contradiction comes in The Life of Francis Daniel Pastorius (dated 1908) mentions a Conrad Backer (alias Rutter) along w/ his English maid Frances Simson on the trip. Nor do I find any supporting evidence that Conrad was one of the 13 founders of Germantown, including several Germantown history websites. Does anyone have any idea or supporting info to support Jane Douglas as his wife and why he doesn't show up as one of the orginal 13 in Germantown? Thank you.

Surnames: Rutter, Douglas, Douglass
According to my information which came from three sources: Will Book A Volume 1, pg 29 (Lancaster County), a will from him dated 19 April 1734 and proved 8 Feb 1737, a Deed book MM (Lancaster County) pgs. 173-176, 181-184 gives distribution of property and the names of the descendants with notes regarding first and second wife. Also, from the Mennonite Family History, page 9, states Conrad migrated from Prussia to England with a son, Andrew, In England he married Jane Douglass and had a second son, Joseph, before migrating to this country on the ship, America. In 1689 he moved from Germantown to Montgomery Co., PA where Pottstown is located. His will is signed with his mark in the presence of three Douglases. His will is listed in Lancaster County wills.There is a bronze marker to his memory in Intercourse, Lancaster county, PA which calls him one of the thirteen original founders of Germantown. Finally, I have read that Pratorius' records are still in Switzerland, that he did not make them readily available. I wonder about the book on his life.
