Tombstone Tuesday ~ Sarah Webb Sutton


Sarah Webb was the third of twelve (known) children born to Allen & Rebecca Webb Webb. Her parents have been reported to be cousins, but I have yet to find a connection.  Sarah was born in Roane County Tennessee.  She married Chrisanbury "Berry" Sutton in Bradley County Tennessee about 1848, and their first child, Luraney, was born in that county in 1849.  Very shortly after her birth, the small family joined with many other Sutton & associated families and formed a wagon train to Arkansas.  They arrived in Hempstead County Arkansas about 1850, where my 2 greats grandfather John was born in December of that year.
Sarah is buried in Zion Cemetery, Hempstead County Arkansas, just a few miles from Nashville.  Both of her parents and several siblings are also buried here.  I am still seeking her husband Berry's place of burial.
