His brother John Rutherford 1846 1922 minister of St Magnus Cathedral Kirkwall from 1884 to 1919, and their brother Thomas Rankine Rutherford 1827 to 1926, who was minister of Dunkeld Cathedral for many years. Can you give me any information on Thomas Rankine Rutherford, I have seen the plaque on the Cathedral wall but know very little of him, if you are unable to give me information could you point me in the direction where I could get some information, I have very little on John Rutherford either.
I look forward to hearing from you.
