I am searching for the parents of John SUTTON, b. abt 1780, Perquimans County, several deed records of purchases and sales 1800-1820s. 1824 will in Perquimans County identifies wife as "Mary" and names one son, James. Census records suggest John had more than one child, but others not identified. Deed records of 1830s show Mary and James W. SUTTON selling parcels once owned by John. Late 1830s, James W. sold out and left North Carolina with wife Mariah STACEY and sons William F. or S. and Robert Lemuel for Conway County, Arkansas. There, James W. is found in a deed of purchase of 1839 and in the 1840 and 1850 Conway County censuses. There are Perquimans County SUTTON families where John would fit, especially George and Samuel, but not enough information to positively identify him as the John who appears in both those families. Appreciate any help.
