I am researching the Suddarth family from Franklin Co, TN.
Dyer Suddarth is listed in the 1830 and 1840 census there.
He apparently died before 1850.
1850/Franklin Co, TN Dist 1 1111/1111
Wallace Suddarth 25 Farmer TN
Rachel 21 TN
Elizabeth 19 TN
Harriett 17 TN
Virginia 12 TN
Frances 9 TN
Martha 45 TN
I found Wallace listed as William Wallace Suddarth
in 1870-1910 census records in Wilson Co, TN. His
second and third children were Mattie and Dyer which
made me fairly sure I had the right man. However, I
ordered a copy of his death certificate, and it shows
that he was born in Winchester, TN, which is in
Franklin Co, and lists his father as Dyer Suddarth.
His mother is listed with no first name, and last name
could be Gardner, Guardner, Girdner??
I do not know what happened to Dyer's daughters
Rachel and Frances. Elizabeth is Margaret Elizabeth
and she married George Nathaniel Frances in Itawamba
Co, MS, 7/29/1851. Virginia Donald married Edward
Hamilton Francis in Itawamba Co, MS, 11/9/1854.
George and Edward are cousins.
Harriett Suddarth married Francis Marion Oakley
in Franklin Co, TN, 11/25/1851. They later moved
to Sevier and Howard Co, AR. Many of their children
then migrated into Texas.
So far I have no more information on Dyer's wife
I am looking for any other information on Dyer
Suddarth. His children would sometimes list his
place of birth as KY or TN on their census record.
I did find Dyer Suddarth on a Tax list in Cherokee
Co, AL, in 1819.
Virginia Donald Suddarth is my husband's great-grandmother. She and her husband are buried in Poteau,
