      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.
