My research in late 1970s found the following information.Perhaps it is related to your Cephas Tutor?
ICephus E. Tutor or Sephas E. Tutor was born ca 1874 in Harnett Co North Carolina; the son of Jesse H. Tutor and Sarah Elizabeth Sexton.He had siblings: William Randall, Wiley O., Sarah F., Oscar H., Henry L., James Daniel, and John Tutor, all born in Harnett Co NC between 1872-1884.
The Richmond County North Carolina marriage records show (1) Sephas E. Tutor married Ida Crouch on 1 November 1900 in Roberdel, NC. (2) S. E. Tutor, Jr. married Marjorie Elizabeth Thomas on 6 October 1939.
Jesse H. Tutor was son of William Madison Tutor and Harriet Ligon; grandson of Owen Tutor and Lucinda Senter.Sarah Elizabeth Sexton was daughter of Wiley Sexton and Lucinda Utley.She is a sister to Julia Ann Sexton, my 2ndgreatgrandmother who married Harris Tutor--he is a brother to William Madison Tutor.
This information on Sephas E. Tutor was published on pp. 268-168a of Rowland, Rodgers and Karr. Tutor: The families of Pontotoc County, Mississippi emigrating from Cumberland County, North Carolina 1848. Iowa City, IA: BH Rowland, 1980.
If your Furman Jefferson Tutor is related to either of the Sephas E. Tutors above, I would be interested in exchanging information.
