Rutledge Cemetery, 1965 Survey with Notes
The hamlet of Rutledge comprised a church, the burial ground, a school and nearby homesteads. Little is known about the Rutledge Cemetery near the site of the Rutledge church except that it was abandoned and some of the graves moved to Grass Valley or Rose cemeteries. It is believed that some graves were plowed over and some exposed in road construction.

You know that being an American is more than a matter of where your parents came from. It is a belief that all men are created free and equal and that everyone deserves an even break. – Harry S Truman
