My Gr.Gr.Gr.Grandfather was William Dutton. He married Martha Stewart [Stuart] in Perry Co.OH 12Dec1831. William & Martha were the parents of Stephen, Stuart, & William. Martha apparently died sometime after the birth of young William(about 1836) because the elder Williamrelocated to Lawrence Co. IL and remarried in 1839. Martha Stuart Dutton's share of her parent's estate would have been 1/6 which divided between her 3 sons would have amounted to 1/18 each. The Crook grandchildren divided thier deceased mother's 1/6 share 6 ways, which gave them each 1/36 of the total. The Dutton boys were not necessarily closer to their grandparents than the Crook kids but had to divide their mother's share into fewer parts.
