James, Thanks so much for that information.  I was not aware that Francis, s/o
Kingsman Dutton had a son Jeremiah.  I have ordered a copy of Cope's book on the
PA Duttons, but as it has not arrived yet I have relied upon Curt Rowe's website
on them, and he does not show a Jeremiah.

Unfortunately, my Jeremiah would have been born about 1745-50, which is not
compatible with Francis Dutton's birth year 1738.  Jeremiah is found on a 1771
tithables list in Botetourt Co. Va. just prior to buying land in Greenville S.C.
in 1773.  On a list of tithables in 1767 in Augusta Co. Va. (Botetourt was formed
>from part of Augusta Co.) I have found a David Dutton whom I am assuming to be
either a brother or his father.  I know that Francis had a son David also, but
there again Francis would not have been having children prior to abt 1755 (at the
very earliest!), which would not make his son David old enough to be a head of
household in 1767.

It's a real puzzle, I have hit a brick wall for quite some time on Jeremiah!!  The
fact that there IS a Jeremiah Dutton in the Pa. Dutton line, in and of itself, I
find interesting.  Thanks for your help.

If you are not familiar with Curt's website it is:
If you find that you have further information in and around his Kingsman/Francis,
(etc) Duttons, please let me know.  I have not found Curt nor any of the Pa.
and/or New England Duttons to be very forthcoming with their information.  If it's
not in the "book" it didn't happen!!  ya know??

Here is what I have figured out, and some of it is still conjecture!!

David Dutton as father of Jeremiah would have been born ca. 1720-1730.
as brother to Jeremiah he'd have been born ca. 1735-46 (he'd have been 21 to be on
the 1767 tithables list in Augusta Co.
Jeremiah 1745-50 (he'd have been 21 to be on the 1771 tithables list in Botetourt
Jeremiah also had a brother, Daniel, slightly younger than himself, I figure,
probably born abt 1750-55.
Jeremiah and Daniel are both found on the 1790 Census record for Greenville Co.
S.C. and that is the last trace I've found for them.
Jeremiah had two known sons: Samuel, b. abt 1773; and my grandfather, John, b. abt
1774, both in Greenville Co. S.C.  At least two daughters, one I believe to have
been Elizabeth who married a Dempsey Davis.  (it is this Samuel I have long sought
in vain!!)
Daniel had (I believe) two known sons:  James, b. abt 1773; Thomas, b. abt 1779
and at least two daughters.  I believe James and Thomas went to Elbert Co. Ga. and
participated in the 1805 Ga. land lottery.  Thomas stayed in the Elbert/Hartman
Co. Ga. area.  James went to Meriwether Co. Ga. area.  Interestingly descendants
>from the Penns in Maryland were also in Elbert Co. prior to a final move to I
believe Catooga Co. Ga.  Haven't found a real connection between my Duttons and
the Penns there.

Well, now that you all have heard MORE than you EVER wanted to know about my
Jeremiah et al, if anything rings any bells with anyone, I can use all the help I
can get!!!  Thanks, Susie wrote:
