Subject: RE: Death Record & marriage license
Our website does not provide death or marriage certificates, but
you will find the phone and address for the Brown County Clerk if you will
return again to the
The page number you have referenced is for the book Cemeteries of
Mabel Ward, 2nd wife of Orville Rutledge (31 Dec 1885 - 25 Apr 1911).
Orville Rutledge (1880-1945)
Mabel Ruth, dau of Orville & Mabel (Ward) Rutledge (17 Apr 1911 - 6 Aug 1912)
Also listed on the same page are Orville's 1st wife, Martha V. Bixler, their daughter, Martha Mae, and Orville's 5th wife, Susie Abbott, who also died following childbirth. The family relationship section on p. 265 does not include the names of the 3rd and 4th wives. I am giving the details here for the first wife and her child, and the fifth wife, in case you would also like this information for your records:
Martha V. Bixler, 1st wife of Orville Rutledge (3 Mar 1881 - 8 Mar 1909)
Martha Mae, dau of Orville & Martha V. (Bixler) Rutledge (20 Feb 1909 - 15 Feb 1918)
Susie Abbott, 5th wife of Orville Rutledge (1882-1945)
The following marriage was located at: http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/GenealogyMWeb/marrsrch.html
RUTLEDGE, ORVILLE C. md. BIXLER, MARTHA V. 11/15/1905
(Bk2 / p56 lic#4483)
I hope this information will be of help to you. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
I am looking for the death record of Mabel (Ward) Rutledge. There is a number beside her name, of 234.
To verify she is the person I am looking for, her Fathers name is Thomas J. Ward and her Mothers name is Matilda Knapp. I do not know the year of death, but it would be after 1916. I think the record is in
. Brown County
Please let me know if there is a charge for a copy of the death certificate and how to proceed.
I also need a copy of the Marriage License dated 11/17/1909 for Mabel Ward to Orville Rutledge - Brown County Vol #2 Pg. 87, License #5077.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
