    Birth? 28 December 1767 Albemarle County, Virginia
    Marriage 16 Feb 1786 Burke County, North Carolina
    to Martha 'Patsy' Sumpter
    Death? 19 January 1853 Caldwell County, North Carolina

    On August 24, 1844, the Clerk of Court for Caldwell County, North Carolina, recorded depositions of the testimony of Abraham Suddereth,Sr, age 82(?), and Henry Sumpter, age 77(?), to support the Revolutionary War pension claim of William Edmiston. The deposition also gives testimony to the frustration of 19th century documentation. Figure 3 shows how the clerk recorded Abraham's name as "Abraham Southard" in the actual deposition on page 1. Figure 4 shows how Abraham's name is shown as "Abraham Sudderth" in the summation signed by the Justice of the Peace. Figure 5 shows Abraham's signature. In addition to the confusion over names, it appears that the clerk may have reversed the two men's ages. Henry Sumpter made the US Census of 1860 where is age is listed as 94, (possibly a slight exaggeration) residing with Mary Adams, age 50.

    The depsition documents are from the Bureau of Pensions file R3243.

    Advisory on William Sudderth


    Some sources claim that this William Sudderth married Margaret 'Patsy' Pleasants, but the William Sudderth that married Margaret Pleasants was a different William Sudderth, son of James Sudderth and Patience Sumpter. This William Sudderth married Margaret (some claim she was Margaret Sumpter, which may explain the confusion between the two William's), and died in Burke County, North Carolina in abt. 1785-1787. Additional documentation and research is needed on this family.

    Information on William Sudderth

    From "The History of Albemarle County, Virginia", pg. 321:

    SUDDARTH

    William and James Suddarth were early settlers in the county. There were undoubtedly brothers. They and their descendants were located on the south fork of Hardware, between the Cross Roads and Covesville. Previous to 1750, William bought from Abraham Venable three hundred acres of a tract of fifteen hundred which Venable had patented in 1735 in that vicinity. In the year first named, William exchanged two hundred acres with James, for the same quantity which James had purchased from the same tract. William seems to have died before 1768 (Note: this is incorrect, he apparently moved to Burke County, North Carolina, where he died in 1785), as at that time Lawrence Suddarth, apparently his son and representative (note: this may have been their brother, Lawrence Suddarth), conveyed to James the other hundred acres of William's purchase from Venable. Lawrence was a resident of Amherst, but subsequently settled in Albemarle, on Green Creek. His wife's name was Martha, and he died in 1815.

    James died in 1800, and left at least three children, William, James and Mildred, the wife of John Turner. These brothers lived where the present Lunchburg Road crosses the south fork of Hardware, a mill known as Suddarth's Mill having conspicuously marked that locality for many years. In 1830, William was assessed with more than thirteen hundred acres of land. He died in 1832. It is said his wife was Martha Sumter, and his children were William H., James, Sarah, the wife of Robert Porterfield, Martha, the wife of John W. Dettor, and Mildred, the wife of William Page. His brother James (note: this was actually his brother's son, James) married Jane, daughter of John Randolph. He died about 1850, and his children were James, Randolph, William T., Mary, the wife of David Hicks, Patience, the wife of Rice Oaks, Thomas, John and Benjamin.

    From "Edmondson Family Association Bulletin", Jan-Mar, 1999, pg. 40:

    The wife of William Edmisten of Wilkes and Burke Counties was identified as Margaret Sudderth, the daughter of William and Margaret of Burke County, NC William Sudderth's daughter Elizabeth actually married ca 1796 to Moses Thompson and removed to Wilson County, TN.

    William Edmisten's signiture appears on a receipt for his wife's received distribution from the estate of her father William Sudderth. This receipt was dated 9/24/1787.

    One source claims that this Lawrence Sudderth died 1677 in Duxbury, Massachusetts, but this is very doubtful since his probable father, David Sudden/Sudderth was clearly located in Virginia, and the records of Lawrence Sudderth in Stafford County, Virginia are most likely of this Lawrence, who was an adult by 1680. Another Lawrence Sudduth, son of Henry Sudderth (probable brother of this Lawrence), born abt. 1672, was clearly too young to have been the same Lawrence Sudderth that is listed in the Stafford County, Virginia records listed below.

    Lawrence was living in Stafford co., Va. on 21 July 1680 as an adult when he witnessed a deed between James Hadweth and William Simpson. On 12 Mar. 1690 he brought suit against Thomas Howard in Stafford co. for the non - payment of a debt and on June 12, 1706 he was an appraiser of the estate of "Parson" Waugh of Overwharton Parish, in Stafford co., Va. My cousin who has done this research has him as the father of James Suddarth. James was born about 1680. If you have any other info I would like to have it.

    David:

    In the late 1970s, the info Lib Finger had about wife of John was "Elizabeth, maiden name unknown, and they had four children."
    Separately, from late 1970s Sudderth data by Virginia Lee Satterfield and Mary Elizabeth (Sudderth) Throneburg, I find that mother of Nancy Sudderth (Mrs. Patrick) Hennessee was Martha (Patsy) Sumpter Sudderth (born February 16, 1765, and married on her 21st birthday), daughter of John and Catherine Sumpter.

    Re Sumpter, see Elizabeth, older sister of Patsy S. Sudderth:

    About David Sudduth

    Little is known of David Sudden (Sudduth/Sudderth/Suddath). Some sources claim that his wife's name was Marie, but records showing this have not been seen by this researcher.

    He came to America abt. 1658, most likely from Scotland, and is listed in the following publication as being transported to Virginia by Col. Thomas Pettus. For transporting David Sudden (Suddath/Sudderth, etc). and 19 others, Pettus received 1001 acres of land on the Potomac in Westmoreland County, Virginia:

    "Cavaliers and Pioneers", Volume I, Patent Book 4, pg 389:

    COL. THOMAS PETTUS, 1000 acs. Westmoreland Co., 15 Mar 1658, p. 270, (371). Nly, upon Patomeck Cr., Ely. upon land of Sir Thomas Lunsford. Granted 10 Feb. 1652 & renewed for trans. of 20 pers: Jeninge Clauson, John Wyatt, John Harrwell, Nicholas Bond, Elizabeth Willett, Marg. Denby, Georg Huttons, Joseph Castle, James Clerke, John Doe, John Ponder, John Moodall, James Moore, Wm. Lenox, Andrew Marshall, Wm. Read, Robert Duckett, DAVID SUDDON, John Consider, Jellian Crone ( or Crons)."


    David Sudden/Sudderth had two possible, perhaps probable sons, Henry Suddarth and Lawrence Suddarth. Since no will for David Sudduth has been located, proof of the identity of his wife and children is lacking. Since records of a Henry and Lawrence appear within a few years after David, they are both thought to be sons of David, but additional records are necessary to prove this relationship.

    Much of the information on this family is from "The Stoddard/Suddath Papers", which has a wealth of information compiled on the Suddarth/Suddath families of early Virginia. Since this is a compilation of the research of many different researchers, there are several opinions (sometimes conflicting) regarding relationships of the early Suddarth/Suddath families, based upon this publication.
