Had a sister, brother. Came from slave owners in Ky. Fantastic portrait is in Mark's office, waiting for photographer to duplicate.

Source: Ethel Doyle: Referrs to her as Jane Rutledge. Ethel remembers her grandmother telling of: 1. Riding a horse to dances and stopping before reaching the dance location to change into her dance dress. 2. Her family members fighting in the Civil War on the southern side. 3. Meeting her husband and falling in love with him before she learned that he had fought on the Northern side and was a “Damn Yankee”.

Source: Jo Weast: I think that she, Jane Rutherford just made that little story up about falling in love with a yankie. In all of my reserch the Morgans and Rutherfords are entertwined. I believe that the families knew each other and due to the civil war Jane R. was very close to being and old maid and that was not a very popular state to be in those days. George W. was still in the army at the time and was a widower and she was probably glad to get the offer. They were married on Oct.6,1864 and on November 10, 1864 he applied for a twenty day leave. Later in December he mustered out of the army.
