Now that we have determined that the Samuel Dutton found in Lawrence Co.
AL 1820 or earlier (he died there in 1823) is not a son of Zachariah
Dutton, who WAS he???

Artie asked about Thomas Dutton who married Mary Brooks and he was one
of Samuel's sons.  One of our members, Sonya Mims, descends from this
line.  I know that I have corresponded with a couple of his decendants. 
It must've been a bit of a shock to them when Judy's Samuel in Anson Co.
NC turned out to be the Samuel mentioned in Zachariah's will (is that
right? I don't remember what it said)  Because I had found prior to
meeting Judy (who sent me Samuel Sneed Dutton's information, which clued
me into the fact that THIS was Zachariah's son, not the one everyone had
always thought was)

 Anyway here is what little I have on Samuel Dutton of Lawrence Co. AL. 
And I concur with Joseph's theory that he and Aaron Dutton who went to
Blount Co were somehow connected.  And it certainly seems to follow that
this Samuel is SOMEHOW connected to Zachariah's kids who came to
Lawrence Co shortly after he did!!  But, alas, connecting the dots...the
eternal quest!!

Samuel Dutton b. 1775-1778 (we don't know where but we do have
information that Aaron came from Pennsylvania.)
 Samuel died abt 1823 in Lawrence Co. AL
Wife:  Ellendor (Ellindor, Ellinor) Owens
m.5 Nov 1798 in Washington Co. KY
Thomas Dutton b. abt 1800 Wa.Co. KY
 wife Mary Brooks m. abt 1820 in Lawrence Co. AL
   their children:  Thomas Dutton b. 5 May 1830 in Lawrence Co. AL, d.
18 Mar 1876 in
                         Brady City, McCulloch Co., Texas
                         m. Mary Catherine Bates b. Oct 5 1833, d. 6 Aug
1917 in Brady City,
                         McCulloch Co. TX.  m. 9 Nov 1853 in Itawamba
Co. MS
                            Thomas and Mary had a daughter, Laura b. Nov
1864 in Tx.
Richard Dutton b. abt 1802
Deborah Dutton b. abt 1804
  +William McDaniel
Pricilla Dutton b. abt 1806
  +John Hughs
Margaret (Peggy) Dutton b. abt 1807
  +Joseph Rhodes m. 22 Nov 1823 in Lawrence Co. AL
Elizabeth Dutton b. abt 1813
Sally Dutton b. abt 1814
Perkins Dutton b. abt 1815
Owen Dutton b. abt 1816
Aaron Dutton b. abt 1817
David Dutton b. abt 1818

There are a couple of loose (possible) connections here to the Aaron
Dutton who went to Blount Co:  Samuel names a son Aaron.  And his
daughter,Margaret Dutton, marries a Rhodes as does one of Aaron's
daughters, Harriet.

Now back to Joseph's info on Aaron.  I've been trying to figure out when
Aaron's family came to Blount Co. (and if indeed Aaron himself ever left
TN or it was just his children who did)  I do know that the marriage of
Hardin Dutton and Susannah Elliot took place in Blount Co and I'm
waiting for a gal to send me the correct date.  It's pretty obvious that
if Hardin was born abt 1815 he didn't get married in 1824!!  And I don't
believe the birthdate of 1820 in TN on Susannah is correct.  I will
update you all when that info comes in.

Anyway, this information says that most of Aaron's children were married
in TN meaning the family did not come to Blount until (if you believe)
after 1835???  I do have information on two of these children, Hardin
and Samuel I, that they married in Blount Co. AL.  So I would
tentatively place the arrival of the Aaron Dutton family in Blount Co
between the years of 1819 (last child Mahala b. 1819 in TN) and 1827
(first child married in Blount Co.)

If anyone has any more information on these two families I would love to
hear about it!!

James in NC!!  What a great Story!!!  Now I think I remember hearing
>from Judy (another grandchild of Samuel Sneed Dutton on our list) that
Samuel met Elizabeth in Anson County while peddling pans (?) and other
goodies across NC and SC??

Joseph:  Sometimes other people are more able to forgive us than we are
able to forgive ourselves.  Give it a break Joe, learn from it and go

Hope this information helps to sort out some of the Duttons in Alabama.
