Would like to have a copy of book "Forging Our Families" written in 1998 (or more recent issue) by Helen M. Camp and Judy Leonard. RUTLAND/ASKEW/BONNER/CHAPPELL connections. I am researching these families for my Family Tree. I am a direct descendant of WILLIAM BONNER & NANCY CHAPPELL.

JOHN WILLIAM BONNER was born 1781 in Martin Brandon's Parrish, Prince George Co, VA, and died May 08, 1852 in Wehadkee, Troup Co. GA. He married NANCY CHAPPELL April 27, 1809 in Home of John Chappell Sr.Hancock Co. GA, daughter of JOHN CHAPPELL and SARA HEATH. She was born 1791 in Washington Co. GA, and died May 26, 1852 in Troup Co. GA [Wehadkee Creek].

Child of William & Nancy Bonner:
SUSAN WILLIAMSON BONNER, b. August 21, 1813, Commissioner Creek, Jones, GA; d. November 30, 1887, Chambers Co. AL.

SUSAN WILLIAMSON BONNER was born August 21, 1813 in Commissioner Creek, Jones, GA, and died November 30, 1887 in Chambers Co. AL. She married JAMES RUTLAND December 23, 1831, son of REDDICK RUTLAND and DOROTHY SMITH. He was born September 13, 1806 in Orangesburg, SC, and died July 10, 1892 in Chambers Co. AL.
I would appreciate any information you can provide on these families or acquiring the
book.

Robert,

What do you have on Reddick Rutland married Dorothy Smith? I am looking for Asa Rutland, believed to have been born 1780-1795 time frame and probably from Orangeburgh SC. Asa is first found by name in Pike Co, MS when he signed a petition, 1813, to have the county divided. I have been unable to trace him.

Could Asa have been a brother to Reddick? His oldest son was William R and we have no idea what the "R" stood for.

ANY help appreciated

Loretta,
My memory is going and since I am in GA I cannot access my stuff at home, I am lost. "R" could stand for Reddick or Rainey. James Rainey Reddick (or vise versa) Rutland was married to Dorothy Smith. My Watson was their son who married Mary Ann Estes from Troup Co., GA. Their first child b. 1836, was named Asa. He is the one who went to TX after the Civil War and started the Rutland family there. He was James Garland Rutland's grandfather. You remember James was Dorothy Rutland's (Longview, TX) husband.
I know we connect someplace.

Judy,

Does your book contain any information on Cullen Rutland of Orangeburgh District, SC? And, if so, would you be able to notify the list when your book will be available again?

Thank you,
Jeanie McCully

No but occasionally I wonder it we need to broaden our work to "straighten" out all the cousins/brothers/etc. We are updating the RUTLAND, BONNER, CHAPPEL and ASKEWS.
Thanks for asking.

Am co-aurhtor of FORGING OUR FAMILIES. Working on update.
No Asa mentioned in Reddick RUTLAND md. Dorothy SMITH's will (Spartanburg County SC 1821). 1st Asa I find in the line is s/o Watson RUTLAND md. Mary Jane ESTES and g.s/o above Reddick. There were several RUTLAND males in NC 1700s. They all moved south and west. How they were related I haven't determined. Am pretty much sticking to Reddick above who md. Jermima HORTON and Dorothy SMITH.
