Good point regarding the names; but I haven't been able to make any connection between the Settoon family and Sitton, Setton, Seaton, etc; even when the families were in very close proximity.I'll keep looking.
Regarding their European origin: - as I recall from their reunion in Pierre Part about 2 years ago, there were a lot of tall, blonde, fair, blue eyed Settoons there.This doesn't match well with the Acadian French.I'll bet it's Scotand!
I have information that John Settoon died in 1831 because of a book I found in the Baton Rouge Library:Successions of St. Helena Parish, LA., 1804-1854. Abstracted by Clyde Purser Young.1966.
In the book there is reference to John Settoon, died 1831, and includes the names of 8 children: Samuel, Zilla, Frances, James, John, Bartholomew, Daniel, Elijah. A portion of the estate is left to a "surviving spouse", but she is not mentioned by name.All 9 individuals were to receive equal portions of the estate.
Property included personal property, slaves, and land on the Natalbany River near Springfield, LA.
