I am researching the SUTTONfamily of Media.George SUTTON andAnnetta (Anna) FIELDwere married in Smithshire, Warren Co. in 1897.They are listed on the 1910 and 1920 census in Media township, Henderson, IL with their children: Aubrey V.; Cecil & Edith.Aubrey and his parents are buried in the Biggsville cemetery, but I am curious what happened to Cecil and Edith, and if they have any descendants in the area.
As for George SUTTON, according to his marriage record, his parents were William SUTTON & Susan DENNISON of Virginia. I am wondering if they also came to IL, or if George came on his own.I have not been able to locate them thus far.
Annetta FIELD's parents were George Field and Sarah Ellen JOHNSON who apparently divorced between 1877 and 1880. I cannot find a marriage record in IL for these two individuals, though it seems as if that is where it should be. I am wondering if Sarah might have had a previous marriage to her one to George.Sarah is also buried in the Biggsville Cemetery, along with Sarah's mother, Mary Jane Johnson. I wonder what became of George Field (b. about 1851 in Ohio according to the census) and of Sarah's father Jesse Johnson who died between 1870 and 1880, most likely in the county since that is where he occurs on the 1870 census. . . .and is NOT buried with the rest of the family in the Biggsville cemetery, though he could possibly be elsewhere in the cemetery.
Other FIELD siblings were Clinton Leroy and Raymond. Other JOHNSON siblings were Elizabeth; Mary Jane; Marinda & William. Their is a Mary who is listed seems to be listed as a Johnson in one census (1870) and as a Field in another (1880). Perhaps a child of Sarah Ellen's before she married George Field.
I would appreciate any information available on these families.
