Suddeth/Sudderth

Postby GiGi » Tue Feb 19, 2013 11:21 am

Hello! I'm new here and looking forward to learning more about my early Gwinnett County family.

I am currently looking for information on my great-grandmother's family, the Suddeths (or in some cases Sudderth). Her name was Minnie O. Suddeth Tatum (1894-1984).

Her father was John Henry Suddeth (1850-1906) who is buried at Sugar Hill Baptist Cemetery along with a couple of her brothers and his parents, George and Eliza Suddeth.

Her mother was Margaret Delaney Brogdon (about 1857-dod unknown) but I have yet to find where she is buried. My granny passed away when I was 15 so while I spent a lot of time with her and listened to wonderful stories about her family, I never learned where they all are buried. Margaret's parents were William and Barbara (Langley) Brogdon. William died in in the Civil War and Barbara is "buried under the large oak tree" (and can no longer be found apparently.

I would love to speak with anyone with more information on this family.

Dear Gigi,

I found a bit of information on Find a Grave on this family. I know that we have members related to these families.

Birth: Apr. 4, 1817
Jackson County
Georgia, USA
Death: unknown
Gwinnett County
Georgia, USA

Margaret Delaney Nesbit was the first wife of Harrison Redfern Brogdon. The couple had four children:

William R. Brogdon, who married a lady named Margaret but died 1863 in Gladsville, Tennessee, in the Civil War;

Sarah Octavia Brodgon, who was the first wife of William Parks Moore and lived in Gwinnett Co;

Joseph H. Brogdon, who married a lady named Julia A. and also lived in Gwinnett Co.;

and John Brogdon, who appears to have died young or in the war.

Unfortunately Margaret herself died by 1846. Harrison R. Brogdon married another lady named Mary by 1850 and had other children.

Her Father William Nesbit http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cg ... d=25330714 this link includes photos

Her mother Mary http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cg ... d=28645748

Hope this information helps,

Vicki

Sure, he's at the Humptulips Cemetery, Humptulips, Washington. Here's a couple of pictures. He died 16 March 1907 of pneumonia after suffering with kidney ailment for quite some time. After moving to Texas (he went with a couple of uncles) he got married. He and his wife then took two wagons west with the help of her brother to Muskogee, Oklahoma where they sold the teams and boarded a train for Oakland, California. From there they took a boat to Seattle and then another, smaller boat to Olympia. In Olympia they purchased another team and headed into the Olympic Peninsula. Their first child, born in Texas, made the entire trip and then died. They were the second white family to settle on the Hoquiam River and their son, James, was the first white child born.

I, of course, have lots more information if you need it.

Anyway, here's a couple of pictures of his grave. Thanks for all your help and info.
The info actually came from his wife. She was interviewed for a book about the early pioneers of the Olympic Peninsula. This is her exact quote: "James Sudderth fought through the Civil War with the South in Longstreet's Division, entering when but sixteen years of age. (it was actually 18) He was with Lee when he surrendered his army to Grant. He was with the artillery, and fired the first gun from Lookout Mountain in Tennessee, near Chattanooga. Went through all the big battles. Marching, they passed through twenty-two snows in one winter. Though he never received any wounds during the entire war, his feet were left in bad shape from chillblains. After the war, he came to work on farms in Texas where I met him and married him October 9, 1880."

The book was "Trails and Trials of the Pioneers of the Olympic Peninsula", compiled by Lucile H. Cleland. The book is out of print but I was able to get a copy from ebay. The book is also online.

COMMENTS: The service and life of Noah Richard Brogdon (1830 – 1862) seems fairly well documented in Gwinnett County, Georgia and as a 2nd Lieutenant in the 42nd Regiment Georgia Volunteer Infantry. The problem arises with a potentially second Noah Brogdon (Private in the 9th Georgia Artillery) with service cards present both during the service period of Lieutenant Noah Brogdon (who died late June of 1862 of disease at Cumberland Gap) and after the Lieutenant’s death. He appears on a Company Muster Roll for 1 Jul to 1 Nov 1863 and a Receipt Roll for Clothing 25 July 1864.

The proof of the existence of a second Noah Brogdon is further complicated by the lack of Census appearances of Noah Brogdon (only once in 1860 that I could find) plus the fact that there apparently is no record of a Pension Application for a Noah Brogdon.

Oh my! I didn't check back right away and now I'm overwhelmed that you two took the time to reply to my post. I will print all of this out and piece it into what I currently know and see what happens.

Thank you!

If you use Ancestry, there is information in several different trees regarding the name Sudderth, or you could search at the Gwinnett Historical Society office. Extensive information located in their office.
