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 's 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.

ISON, LAKE, MCNARY, MITCHELL, ROBINSON posted by John D. Dunlap on Tuesday, March 7, 2000

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 was 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
