came to Taylor Co at some time because that is where my grandmother, Cora
Carder, was from. My father was one of their children; Lawrence W. JACKSON

my grandfather would be greatly appreciated.

William LUETHKE born about 1837 in Mecklenburg, Prussia arrived
in New York 04 Sep. 1865. He settled in S. Subdivision Grafton District
in Taylor County from where he worked as a stone mason building tunnels,
etc for the Railroad. Within a few years of his arrival, William LUETHKE
wife Mary born about 1837 in Denmark and their first three children Christanna
born about 1863 in Denmark, William born about 1864 in Denmark, and Charles
born about 1865 in Denmark joined William in Taylor County, WV. My grandfather,
Henry E. LUETHKE , their fourth child, was born in Taylor County,
WV 18 February 1869 (if his grave marker is correct). Census records indicate
the year of his birth could have been 1868. At least seven more children
were born in Taylor Co., WV as follows: Anna about 1870, Frederic about
1872, Mary about 1874, Phersu about 1878, George December 1879 and Josephine
about 1880. Can anyone tell me what railroad was operating in Taylor Co.
WV around 1870? Also I would appreciate any information anyone can add
for the William LUETHKE family and/or the John H. E. M. LUETHKE
family which resided in Grafton, Taylor Co., WV in the later half of
the 1800s. Thanks, Gene Bradburn.

Is there a list of the Grafton Guards? My GGgrandfather is the Capt. John
A. ROBINSON listed in the Civil War page as the fellow that got
knocked off his horse. He came from a large family, and it seems as though
after the war the family was not as close. I was wondering if some of his
family may have gone with the north. The ROBINSON family was in
Taylor Co. from the time Taylor became a county . Joshua O. ROBINSON
a member of the 15 men appointed to set up the county and the father of
John A. ROBINSON . Also is there any record of a record of a Rector
College? I hope that a roster may help in finding John's brother's and
sisters Thanks in advance for your help John D. Dunlap
