Notes about James Monroe Luttrell

Son of John Rutherford and Margaret Alice Duncan Luttrell

1870 Census for Franklin Precinct, Morgan County, Illinois shows "James Lutrell 'farmer', age 29 (as of June 1st); Mary Lutrell 'keeps house', age 27; Lewis, age 8; Thomas, age 6; and Cora, age 3".  Place of birth is 'Illinois' for all.  
Luttrell researcher (and cousin) Jerry Ramsey info says J. M. L. birthdate of 1839 "more probable since brother Isaac b. 1841 according to 1850 Census Index".

Ramsey and Mrs. Guy Martin information shows "James Madison" 
Claude Atherton Luttrell, Sr. (grandson of J. M.) diary notes show "James Monroe".   Article about William T. Luttrell (bro. of James M. Luttrell) in "Portrait and Biographical Album of Morgan and Scott Counties, Illinois" by Chapman Brothers, 1889 also shows "James Monroe".

**Notes re: Mamie Luttrell
Mamie not shown in other sources.  "Mamie" (spelling questionable) shown in diary entry of Claude Atherton Luttrell, Sr. with notation "adopted (child) by Smith".  Mother apparently died in childbirth.  Dr. adopted baby. 

Family Notes

In notebook of Claude A. Luttrell, Jr. (Lewis Palmer Luttrell's grandson), reference is made to a “letter from Aunt Mary (dau. of Lewis Palmer Luttrell) of July 21, 1953. . .
“L. P. Luttrell born in Springfield, IL. . .came south at age 24.  Was age 10 when his mother died in childbirth.  Dr. took baby girl and raised her.  A brother Tom came to Texas in 1901.  Had brother named Earnest.  Grandad often spoke of Wright family.”
