Information on George Rutledge

From "Montgomery County 1606-1888 Virginia and Virginians. Eminent Virginians. By Dr. R.A. Brock Secretary of the Virginia Historical Society":

Jonathan Tosh Evans - practicing physician and surgeon in Montgomery county for half a century, was born in this county May 9, 1816. John Evans, his father, came from Botetourt county and settled on the North Fork of Roanoke River, about 1802, and subsequently formed the acquaintance of and married Mary, daughter of George Rutledge, her father the cousin of the Edward Rutledge of South Carolina, who was a signer of the Declaration of Independence. George Rutledge, of Montgomery County, was one of the pioneers here, and defended the early settlement from the ravages of the savage foe. He was once wounded in an encounter with the Indians, and was about to be left for dead when his comrades discovered that there was hope of saving him, bore him away and cared for him till his recovery. John Evans, father of Jonathan T., was one of those sturdy pioneers to whose energy and ability in redeeming the wilderness Montgomery county owes its present greatness. He reared a family of thirteen children, bestowing upon them the best education the times afforded, and all are now filling responsible positions in society. Jonathan T. Evans married Catharine Trigg in Montgomery county, October 10, 1865, and their children are two sons: Archer P., born July 17, 1866; Allen D., July 29, 1868. The parents of Mrs. Evans were Thomas C. and Catharine (Craig) Trigg, early settlers of Montgomery county, and she was born here December 22, 1831. Dr. Evans’ postoffice address is Bangs, Montgomery County, Virginia.
