Family History - RUTHERFORD
« on: Friday 02 November 07 16:57 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to find family members of Robert Rutherford born in Kelso, Roxburgh on 26 December 1862 or thereabouts who married Elspeth Mack.
Others are a Robert who married a Blanche Kittow.   Robert who married Margaret whose children were Robert 1862, Agnes 1870, Margaret 1871 and Helen 1876.
My grandfather was Robert James born in 1886 who married Elizabeth Jane Green.  He lived in a cottage at the Agricultural College in Cirencester.

Welcome,

I went to www.family search.org - used the 'search' facility.  Put in the parents as Robert Rutherford and Elspeth Mack and came up with th following children.   (The child Robert below, has a mother down as Elspeth Mack - not his wife).  You may want to go there and have a play around.  A free site. 
Got to run just now - work calls.  REgards,   Steve

Thank you all.  I shall log on tomorrow and do some more research.
This is all fascinating.  I've got my brothers hooked on it as well.
