We were all born in Atlanta, Georgia but grew up in Decatur, Georgia
about 6 miles east of Atlanta. We all attended and graduated from
Decatur High School.
We have all composed a short bio of our lives till now and this bio
may be reached by clicking on our name above.
We would like to thank all of those who have contributed their
research and family remembrances for the material contained on this
site. Without their help this project would be years away from
completion. We would particularly like to thank Elizabeth Pearl
“Betty” Hannah Farnell whose research on the
Rutledge lines make up most of the reference material from our
Mother’s family and to Mr. Don Rutledge of Reston, Virginia, a distant
cousin and a Decatur, Georgia native. Don has done a splendid job of
compiling a history of the
Routledge/Rutledge name and documenting his particular Rutledge
line where it diverges from ours. He has given his permission and we
are proud to include his work on this site.
