Notes for James Sutton: [Sutton from Mike Sutton.FTW]
Estate settled 1820 Habersham Co. Ga. Info obtained from 1820 HabershamCo. Census, James was in Ga. buying land in 1786. Info also from Georgia Penetentary records of 1830, The Georgia Black Book by Robert Scot Davisjr. Suttom Mill over Beaverdam Creek in Habersham Co. 2 miles from Clarksville James and Catherine buried on land owned by Dozier Sutton, later willed to Nancy Black, south of Owens rd.
I have looked over my data again and checked thesources regarding Joshua, Joseph, Elijah and Edmund as also the sons of James Sutton and Catherine Dove. This is what I show: James and Catherine had the following children. Reuben b. 1778 SC, m. Elizabeth Howard in 1794 James D. b. 1784 SC, m. Elizabeth ? James died after 1860 Dozier b. Dec. 1788 SC, m. Susana Joseph b. 1789 SC John b. 1790 Habersham Co. Ga. m. Florence Edmund b. 1795 SC Anna b. 1795 SC m. Dunn Elijah b. 1775 Va m. Elizabeth Ward The sources for the above info comes from, Land Records Ga. 1786, 1820Habersham Co. Ga. Census, Tax List of Alexandria, Va of 1800, GeorgiaState Census of 1860, 1800 Pendleton SC Census, History of Sutton family by Elijah Sutton to E.H. Sutton 1870, Information from Doris Coulter (re:family history) , Layton Sutton, Lile R. Easterling. I have to search for the note, but I believe I read somewhere that Elijah or perhaps Edmund was taken in by James and Catherine. Perhaps a son of William Sutton, brother of James? I also wonder if Anna and Edmund were twins, although I have no info saying such. I believe Edward may have been confused with Edmund. I'll keep checking and see what I find. Layton Sutton provided me with some info as well as a Larry McCutchen who provided me with group sheets of several ancestors. I think once I enter ALL the info I have into my new data base It will clear up some mistakes. forexample, Elijah B. Sutton who is listed as husband to Burtheny Ellen Sutton, dau of James M. Sutton. This Elijah's last name is actually Seaton but was listed as a Sutton. I located a note on a group sheet that implies that Reuben Sutton had a son, Joseph, H. H. and another I can't read but begins with "E" who were raised by James Sutton.
