World Connect not working so all links to family members do not work.  There is no time frame as to when it will be fixed.  I am looking for another site to host Tippah Familys and will post here when I find one that I like.  You can email me here EMAIL ME, thanks.

Welcome to all. I hope this site will help in your search for our past.

I got started on this project while researching my 3rd Great grandfather William Williamson Rutherford and his Civil War records. I continued with his brothers and started to have all this family information. So I decided to write it all down but that was becoming very large. I purchased a genealogy program and have been adding to it almost everyday now. It has become a very interesting hobby to find out about my past. So now I present this page for all of those who have touched my life whether they knew it or not. As with any project this size there will be errors, so please let me know if you find something that needs correcting. If you have additions let me know so I can include that family line. I hope you find what your looking for here. I have had a lot of people and family help with this project either in person or thru the internet. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!! Without people like you we couldn't do what we do.

  If you and your family are not listed let me know and we'll get your line in here somewhere.

The Rutherford Coat of Arms

Rutherford Coat of Arms


I found this but make no claims as to its authenticity. I have no name to give credit to as this site is not signed by anyone that I could find. It has a good write-up on some of the Rutherford history (but not my family YET) and is very interesting. My understanding about Coat of Arms is that it is given to an individual and that it is passed down through the family. So this Rutherford Coat of Arms may not belong to all RUTHERFORD's.
