I’m looking for anyone who is researching the Sutton family of Sutton, West Virginia. Their family history is recorded in 2 books: History of Braxton County and Central West Virginia, and Genealogy of the Sutton Family in America. Both books are by John Davison Sutton, published around 1920.

Surnames: Sutton, Darley
My ancestor, Thomas Sutton, appeared in Jefferson County, Mississippi, in 1820. According to the 1830 census, he was born circa 1790-1800 and was foreign, not naturalized. According to family legend, his father’s name was John. John’s family came to America from England, and John came over after he finished his education. He was a schoolteacher who came to South Carolina. His family was related to an earl in Sheffield, England. This description fits John D. Sutton. His ancestors were from Manchester, England, which is about 50 miles from Sheffield. I believe John D. is Thomas’ father. John D's wife's father was named Thomas Darley. Problem: my Thomas Sutton died of yellow fever about 3 years before John D. died, so Thomas wouldn’t be listed in a will or probate. I need help finding proof that Thomas is John's son.
