(There are other children throughout the above listing.)
My grandmother always said, "Sitton never was Sutton."
John James Sittonwrote to the GA Sitton grandchildren of John Sitton, b. 1763, in the 1800s. He got the information fromthese grandchildren. The above were in communication with one another.
The name was always written Sitton by John Sitton (1763),Joseph,Ben F. Sitton, Philip b.1770,James,Harvey Sitton, All that I have researched show SITTON, no substitutions.
I do not believe we are of the New England SUtton/Sitton group.
