"Robert Rutledge had one son and four daughters, Edward (whose children settled in St. Louis)..."
-p.40 of The Chronicles of the Clark Family, Vol. 1, 1882

1830 Land Deed (attached):
Edward Rutledge, with son Thomas, sells all property in Ballymagirril to a Thomas Johnston, in April 1830. The deed says the property was formerly occupied by Edward's father "Robert Rutledge, deceased". We know, based on other land records from the 1820s in Ballymagirril, that there were very few Rutledge landowners.

(As we are unsure of Jane's surname or where she is from.)

"Died: On the 8th inst., at the residence of her father in this town, Eleanor, eldest daughter of Mr. Edward FAGAN, auctioneer."
