With reference to recent messages concerning Samuel Denny and whether he
married Sarah Suddarth, I as much as anyone would like to believe that,
prove it and get on with life. The following tree will probably burst
our bubble however. Since I am fairly new here, this may have already
been discussed and tossed out. This Suddarth Tree I found on the
Nathaniel (Nat) Parker Turner Web Pages at n . This
shows that Sarah married a John Denny, there is mention of several
Dennys in the notes below to include ref to Saml Denney, Saml S. Dinny,
and Saml Denny so it appears there was a Samuel there.
There is also mention of a ROBERT PRIDDY in the notes, perhaps this is
where our PRIDDY Meeks got his name, the MEEKS family line also has
several people with first or middle names of SUDDARTH so it looks like
they were exchanging names.
Other Dennys mentioned in this tree are Martha, Benjamin, Lazarus,
Zachariah , William and William Jr.
Anyway BILL and others, have at it, file is too large for one message so
will continue on another message.

In 1783, Charles had a land grant of 400 acres in Kentucky which doesn't
account for the land mentioned in his will.

PATIENCE SUMPTER December 09, 1746 in Albemarle Co., VA, daughter of
WILLIAM SUMPTER and ELIZABETH DULCE'(?).
Notes for JAMES SUDDARTH:
In Woods, "Old Albemarle", a William Suddarth is also mentioned as an
early settler of Albemarle, but not clear whether he was a brother of
James or what? Wm bought land prior to 1750, so he would have been
somewhat older than James. "Some Turners of Virginia" cites James and
Patience Suddarth as parents of Mildred, but cites no proof. NPT3 1/97

More per TTN 2/97 Ref Note 324:
James SUDARTH Sr, died in 1800. William and James Suddarth were
early settlers in the county. They were undoubtedly brothers. They and
their descendants were located on the south fork of Hardware, between
the Cross Roads and Covesville. Previous to 1750, William bought from
Abraham Venable 300 acres of a tract of 1500 which Venable had patented
in 1735 in that vicinity. In the year first named, William exchanged
200 acres with James, for the same quantity which James had purchased
from the same tract. William seems to have died before 1768, as at that
time Lawrence Suddarth, apparently his son and representative, conveyed
to James the other two hundred acres of William's purchase from Venable.
Lawrence was a resident of Amherst County, but subsequently settled in
Albemarle County, on Green Creek. His wife's name was Martha, and he
died in 1815.
James SUDDARTH, died on 1 Sep 1800 in Albemarle County, VA. He
bought land from his father William in 1750 and received a land patent
in 1756 on the branches of the Hardware River. He lived and died in a
house which may have been his father's original house; now called "The
James left at least three children, William, James,and Mildred, the
wife of John Turner. These brothers lived near where the present
Lynchburg Road crosses the south fork of Hardware, a mill known as
Suddarth's Mill having conspicuously marked that locality for many years

Mildred Suddarth was said to have been a niece of Gen. Thomas Sumpter,
(per Draper) which might indicate that Patience was a sister of the
In "Some Va Turners" Turner 1965, Mrs. Lucius Don Turner IV says that
Amherst Co. records indicate that Patience was widow of a John Turner,
but not clear which one. She also cites "Reliques of the Rives" by

Franklin lived between Charlottesville and Stauton, VA. Mr Franklin

Franklin, and then to my (Terri's) 6th g-grandfather, James SUDDERTH,
son of William SUDDERTH and Partlow MILLS). She married James on Dec. 9
, 1746, in Albemarle Co., VA. She
and Mr. Franklin had four children, and then she and James SUDDERTH had
children. Apparently Patience was a midwife, and her services were
recommended by Thomas Jefferson to his daughters, according to one of
history books. A descendant, through one of her Franklin daughters, was

Suddarth family. It also contains 4 pages from the Stoddard-Suddith
Papers; 8 pages about descendants of Patience including the Tale of The
Pink Silk Dress; and 2 pages from the History of Albemarle containing
short articles on SUDDARTH and SUMTER.
I also compiled a book in 1991, SOME MARTIN FAMILIES, Descendants of

some time on the South Hardware River where all of their children were

County), NC by 10 June, 1779. Family tradition indicates they moved to
NC in 1779 with many other Albemarle County, VA families and settled on
Blair's Fork of Lower Creek on a plantation of 370 acres on the western
of edges of the City of Lenoir. He was paid 2-1/4 Spanish milled
dollars for three bushels of Indian corn by authority of Congress on May

for a public claim on October 18, 1786. William, the founder, died
about 1784/86 leaving a will which named his wife Margaret and his
neighbor, Captain Peter Thompson as executors. The widow Margaret later

will were a list of four female slaves and an inventory of sale of
household goods, most of which John Townsend purchased from the Estate.
He married Martha _____? about 1755 in Albemarle County? VA.
Marriage Notes for WILLIAM SUDDARTH and MARTHA ????:

PORTERFIELD; m. (2) W. PAGE.
Notes for SARAH "SALLY" SUDDARTH:
The descendent chart in Draper 18 VV shows two Sallys as daughters of
Richard Suddarth. I have interpreted that to indicate that Sally had
two spouses. NPT3 1/97.
Sally Porterfield was said to be living near Abingdon, VA, at the time
of her brother, Richard's death in 1873. (Draper 18 VV)

Notes for DICE DETTS:
Again, the identity of thisspouse of Elizabeth Suddarth is open to
question. Draper has him as "Dice Detts", while Chesney notes have John
