SAMUEL AND GEORGE (HIS SON) SUTTON BIBLE
The original Bible is located in the East Carolina Manuscript Collection, Joyner Library, East Carolina University, Greenville, NC in the Sutton Family Collection. The Front page is missing and it is possible other genealogical pages are missing. The digital Bible can be found at https://digital.lib.ecu.edu/viewer.aspx?pid=23670&n=2
Samuel Sutton lived in Durantís Neck, New Hope Township, Perquimans County. His son, George, moved to Gates County, NC by 1820 where he is found on the Census. This Bible covers the years 1739 to 1846.
There are Marriage Bonds for George and Sarah Barcliff. After Sarahís death George remarried Jemima.
Both transcribers did a transcription and then compared notes. This is an old Bible and age has taken its toll so we are indebted to Martha Elmore, East Carolina Manuscript Collection, Joyner Library, ECU for her assistance in reading the original in places. For clarification purposes we have added a few notes Ė they will be found as NOTE:
