>Been too busy to check my e-mail for several days.  Was very excited to find
>all the mail about the Z. Dutton group.  It is my bedtime now, but have
>printed out all the messages. Will read through them tomorrow and try to
>process it all.  My Genealogy program is GEDCOM compatible.  Sounds as if the
>folks in the group have done quite a lot of research.  One of the folks was
>hoping I could help back beyond Zachariah, Sr.  But, as you know, I had never
>been beyond James Dutton until you contacted me.  My files are strictly James
>Dutton descendants and the descendants of Jarrard's son Zachariah at this
>point.  I have fairly complete files of William Dutton Family (James's
son) to
>present generation.  But will be happy to contribute that to anyone who needs
>	Heard today from Alice Dutton Freeman, gg granddaughter of Jarrard Dutton's
>and his son Zachariah.  There are some good family oral history stories of
>Civil war times from her.  She is interested in having a contact with the
>Brown family (Zach's sister Mary Dutton who married John Brown and moved to
>Mississippi).  If you have a contact name and address, I would pass it on to
>her.  She remembers when some of them visited Walker County years ago, but
>no addresses at this time.  Since Zach died in the Civil War when her
>grandfather Simeon B.was very young, and  Simeon B. died before her father
>born, contacts and connections with the Dutton part of her family have
>been lost until we began corresponding.
>	A Civil War Descendants Society whom I paid to do some research for me sent
>me a list of all the Duttons who served with the Confederacy and the units
>with which they served.  Lots with the same names from AL, TX, NC, VA, SC,
>etc.  Can share any names anyone is interested in. This may be available on
>the net somewhere, but I am new to this world and haven't located sites for
>this yet. 
>	While on vacation in Hill County, TX in January I got a Dutton name from the
>phone directory, Milford Dutton.  A descendant in CA answered my letter after
>it was forwarded to her (or him - name is Georgie).  Their last known
>descendants were from Gwinnett County, GA and the generation before was said
>to have been born in NC.  Thought they might be more directly connected to my
>Duttons as my grandfather spent 18 years in Hill Co, TX while his children
>were being born.  But so far can't connect.  These Gwinnett County Duttons
>were George W. and Andrew Jackson Dutton (brothers).  
>	Glad there is a descendant of Elizabeth Dutton Hamilton in the group. One of
>the descendants of that family sent some information to my cousin Luella
>Morrison two or three years ago.  Will be interesting to see how our files
>	Hopefully I will soon get these medical concerns that are preoccupying me
>of the way.  Have a 7 years old Michigan granddaughter coming to spend 10
>beginning Thursday, so this along with more lab work and oral surgeries etc.
>may be slow getting into this.  That does not indicate a lack of enthusiasm.
>My Dutton history seemed to have really slowed down and now it seems to be in
>the jet stream!  Will hear from me again!  Feel free to send this on to the
>group.  I will get my mailing list ready soon.              Eula Dutton
