Facts and Events
I'm not really sure this will be of much help.... but here goes anyway --- my line of Suttons came from PA through Ohio to SE Iowa -- the only Jesse I show is son of born prob circa 1700 -- and I don't have much info on him --
but my family is descendent from George & Sarah [Tilden] Sutton as far as I can tell -- and we are via the 4 brother preachers... David, Isaac, Moses & ?? --
anyway - to make a short story longer - Rev. Milton Sutton, (born in 1814 in PA) his brothers & sisters, and his grandparents came to Ohio - Huron county- around 1810 - Milton moved to Mt Pleasant, Henry, Iowa - I know that the family was there in 1876 - that's when my great grandfather was born --
well, I'm thinking that your Jesse is probably a cousin of my Milton - and that the family kind of moved west together - in small groups -- or maybe they followed your trader
you should check the tax rolls for the area & see how many Suttons you can find - then follow them back to through Ohio - and I'm sure you'll find your connections
let me know if this helps any - sure would like to connect more of us Sutton cousins together -- thanks, Christine in MN
