The other idea I had was to find the parents of William Henry Rutherford, his brother Adam Montgomery Rutherford and his sister Margaret Rutherford (she lived in Manorhamilton).  William Henry was a Major in her Majesty's 55th or 87th regiment.  They are all cousins to George Shaw Rutherford.  Hopefully I could find James Rutherford's birth date that way and find out if he was born in Scotland or Ireland.

William Henry Rutherford owned property in Killroosk, outside Manorhamilton and willed it to his brother Adam Montgomery Rutherford.

Thanks for the information on William Albert.  I worked with someone at British Ancestors who provided me with marriage certificates, naval, army, etc. records on George Shaw, Elizabeth Tilden and all the children and their children.  Can you please send me the website again for all of the grave markers you sent with the Rutherford's?  I must not have seen it and I went back to all the posts.  I think you are right about all the marker's.

I am not sure why there are so many Rutherford's in the Manorhamilton Leitrim area.  I do know that my 4th great grandfather, James Rutherford that I am hunting for was a flax grower and also a hops grower.  George Shaw Rutherford grew flax himself in Australia.  His brother James died in 1862 in Sligo and he didn't have a will.  Letter of Intestate (?).

Hi - I looked at the marker for James Rutherford over and over and could not make out any dates.  From your picture, can you tell anything?  Also, I didn't see Mary Rutherford.  James' tombstone looks very old and worn.  I made it as large as I could on the my screen, but still couldn't make out the age.  Surely that is not a 9_?

Is there a date of any kind?  That might give me his birth date or death date and I can subtract 97!
Can you tell me what the marker says?
