The only Aaron Dutton I have in my files besides the Aaron Dutton b.
1785 in Pa, resided in Jefferson County, is a son of Samuel Dutton who
resided 1820 in Lawrence Co.  Samuel's son Aaron was b. abt 1817, and if
he died in 1842 he would only have been 25 years old.

Samuel naming a son Aaron suggests a link to the elder Aaron in
Jefferson Co, but still circumstantial whether they were related.  The
Aaron buried in Itawamba Co MS in 1842 could not have been the elder
Aaron because he is reported on the 1850 census for Jefferson Co. Al.

Sonja, I go round and round with this thing of your Thomas b. abt 1830. 
Assuming that the Aaron buried in 1842 in Miss. is the son of Samuel as
mentioned above, AND the fact that your Thomas is married in Itawamba
Co. tends to link (Sonya's) Thomas to the Samuel Dutton family of
Lawrence Co.  On the other hand, some descendants of Zachariah's went to
Itawamba Co also.

That Thomas is living alone on the 1850 census for Itawamba Co. is
unusual.  He'd have been barely 20 years old!  Something took him to
that area.  Were there any other Duttons on that census???  We do know
there was a female Dutton, Mary, dau of Gerrard and Charity, m. to John
Brown, who was probably there by that time.
