  • Notes 
    • 1st. In 1778, Henry Co., VA, she is mentioned in her father, Ralph Shelton, Jr.'s will as Katherine Rutherford along with her siblings (including my ancestor, Elizabeth Arnold). [Will dated 1 Apr 1787, she was already married.]

      2nd. In 1793, A lawsuit was filed against the estate of Ralph Shelton, Jr.; Dudley Rutherford, and the rest of the heirs were named. Here, Ralph's daughters are not named, only their husbands, as was the custom at that time.

      3rd. In an 1827, Adair Co., KY court record, Hiram Shelton and Catherine Rutherford were listed as administrators of Dudley Rutherford's estate.

      I don't know who Hiram Shelton was. Katherine's daughter, Lydia, married James Shelton c1806. Perhaps Hiram was Dudley's grandson.
      ==================
      «b»Another child was Susannah, listed on this webpage http://homepages.rootsweb.com/~dobson/va/vapatric.htm, a site built by Mary Ann (Duncan) Dobson. Susannah reportedly married Rice DUNCAN 1812 in Adair Co., KY. Also from this website:

VA court records 1793; could wife in this 1827 deed be Sucy instead of Lucy?) «/b»
