PostSubject: Charles Rutherford    Charles Rutherford  EmptyTue Oct 19, 2010 9:57 pm

Charles Rutherford was born on September 7, 1865, at St Cuthberts, Edinburgh. He was described by family members as a wanderer. In 1895-96 Charles Rutherford II took part in the Jameson Raid in Southern Africa, went to Angola, then, on his way to the Klondyke, was turned back at the base of the Chilkoot Pass by the formidable ice and snow slope. He returned to Africa, where he and his brother James bought a farm in Rhodesia, near Bulawayo. In 1893 Charles Rutherford II was a cavalry regiment trooper in the Salisbury Horse of the British South African Company in the Matabele War. He fought in both Zulu Wars and also in the Boer War. He was also a prospector and worked for the Post Office in Bulawayo. He married late in life and died at Bulawayo. 6. James Rutherford was born at St Cuthberts, Edinburgh on November 29, 1867. He was a commercial traveller in 1891 living at his parents' home in Edinburgh. Five years after his father died, he moved to London with his mother, leaving the operation of the family tobacco business to his brother, John. When the business failed, James went to Rhodesia, joined his other brother, Charles, in the purchase of a farm, married late in life, died at Bulawayo, c. 1938.
