Benjamin Sutton born: 4/27/1836 died: 4/22/1874 and is buried at Bethlehem Christiam Church in Alamance County,NC. He is my great grandfather. He is the son of Perry Sutton and Mary (?)and had a brother Lewis Sutton. There may have been other children that I am not aware of. He married Sara Swift Tickle (b.1838 d. 1903)who had one child (Sudie S. Tickle) by her first marriage. They had 3 children besides Sudie. They were George Thomas Sutton m. Margaret LouAnn Bennett: Will S. Sutton 1869-1922 m. Ogtavia Bennett: and John Ulysses Sutton 1872-1937 m.Martha (Mattie) Jane Swift.
The last child was my grandfather. I will be anxious to hear if this information is helpful to you and if you have any additional info. to share with me. Dottie Sutton Pickett
I have Perry and MARGARET as the parents--got that off a census sheet. Kids I show of that marriage are, in addition to Benjamin, Lewis, Absalom, Mary, and Margaret. Benjamin, however, married Sarah A. Brannock, according to my records. Children of that marriage include Susan (1856/60), Mary (1858), Nancy (1859), William (1868), George (1870), and my great-grandfather, John Ulysses. I have been going absolutely CRAZY trying to get a birth and death date (along with documentation) for John Ulysses. He married Martha June Swift but I don't have a firm date or documentation for the marriage.
Dottie if your Benjamin married Sara Swift Tickle and Virginia's Benjamin married Sarah A. Brannock then which Benjamin is this that married Nelly Shepherd? they had 8 children found from census records --
Nancy, Margaret, Emiline, Fannie, Eliza, Barbara, Alice and John Joseph Sutton.

Our Benjamins turn out to be the same: Sarah is not a Brannock but a Swift. In some of the records, because she was living with her Brannock grandparents, she got tagged with the wrong surname. I was confused by your Benjamin for a while, too.
I live in Burlington ,N.C. I was born here in 1950. My father was Walter Paul Sutton son of George Thomas Sutton. Benjamin Sutton was my GGF and Pery Sutton was my GGGF. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
