I have been searching for months trying to find info about my great grandfather, Benjamin Franklin Sutton. Family says he drowned maybe in the Chariton River somewhere around 1870-1876 and my great grandmother Sarah Lake Sutton then married Absalom Cupp in 1878. They then had 3 sons, Newton J. Jonah and Richard. I want to know how he died and where,when and where he and ggrandma are buried They once lived near Bee Branch. Absalom was widowed by 1900. His father was Valentine Cupp and his mother Elizabeth Davis. I'd so appreciate any new info.
