I have DNA matches to Rutledge families from distinctly different geographic regions/lines (it would appear) that trace back to c. 1700s in America. My line stayed in Co Tyrone until 1854. These include George Rutledge and Mary Nellie Gamble (Virginia to Charleston SC); John Russell Rutledge and Eleanor Caldwell (Bewcastle to Bucks Co, VA to Hanging Rock, SC); John Rutledge and Letitia Coulter (Huron Co, Ontario); Edward Rutledge to Baltimore MD 1777. Since these lines all appeared in America in the early 1700s and mine stayed in Co Tyrone until mid 1800s, it would appear someone stayed in Co Tyrone. But does anyone know of any possible connection these families may have had to each other? (Many match in the 10-12 cMs range so seems a bit far back to be 1700 for the relationship.) Thanks.
