  3.   Biography of John T. Sutton, in Unknown published source.

    ... William G. SUTTON was born in Greene county, Ohio, and was but nine years of age when the family came here in 1837. He grew to manhood in Jay county, helpful in the labors of developing the home farm in Richland township, and was well schooled in his youth. He early entered the ranks of the school teachers of Jay county and for seven or eight years during the years of his young manhood spent his winters as a teacher in the district schools of his home county.

    He married Judith GAUNT, who also was born in Ohio, a native of Warren county, that state, and established his home on a farm adjacent to the original SUTTON home farm in Richland township, where he developed an excellent piece of property, becoming the owner of about 400 acres of land. William G. SUTTON was a man of force and influence in his home community and was widely recognized as an adviser in the affairs of his pioneer neighbors, acting as the local notary public and for some years as clerk of the township. In political affairs he took a prominent part, allied himself with the Republican party upon its organization, and in 1859 was elected auditor of Jay county, thus serving in that important public capacity when the Civil war broke out. He was re-elected auditor in 1863 and thus served for eight years, during that period making his home at Portland. A year after the completion of this term of public service Mr. SUTTON moved to Dunkirk, where he spent the remainder of his life, engaged in developing his farms, overseeing the clearing and draining of the same, and also for years acted as local claim agent for the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, continuing thus engaged until his retirement about five years prior to his death, which occurred in June, 1918. His wife had preceded him to the grave nearly twenty-five years, her death having occurred in April, 1894.

    They had four children who grew to maturity, those besides the subject of this sketch having been
    - Richard J. SUTTON, who died on May 15, 1920;
    - Rebecca C., wife of J. M. DUNN, and
