so, I will be drinking Green Beer tomorrow.
Although I don’t talk about it, I am Irish through my Dad’s Family.
Starting with my 3rd Great Grandfather:
— Robt Rutledge was born in Ulster, Northern Ireland
–Jane Thomson (his wife) was Scottish
–Robt Rutledge (son of above) was born in Ulster, Northern Ireland
came to Canada as a baby and married
— Ellen Elliott who was born in Ulster, Northern Ireland and came to Canada with her parents (Robert Elliott and Elizabeth Graham born in Ulster, Northern Ireland)
The son of Robt and Ellen Rutledge was Robert Rutledge. He married Annie Dicks and they had my Grandpa, Gordon Elliott Rutledge.
It must be the Irish in me that makes me love cabbage, corn beef, beer.
So to all my fellow Irish Family:
