Re: Wooten Family
In Response To: Re: Wooten Family ()
Where any of your Wooten's in Belmont County, Ohio? In the early 1800's, Samuel Wooten was freed by Quakers from Virginia. I have an interest in the Wooten family because: My gg grandfather, Rev. Sugars Turner Jones, was married to Elizabeth Wooten and had two daughters from this union. However, Elizabeth and her two daughters died at early ages in Belmont County. I don't know who were the parents of Elizabeth Wooten Jones because we speaking about the early 1800's. Although there's no blood relationship Elizabeth and me (my gg grandmother was the second wife of Sugars), the Wooten family does cross other family lines. Specifically, we believe that John Wooten, the first husband of Silky from Sussex County, VA, may provide us with information on Samuel Jones & Jane Turner, who married in Belmont County, in 1815. Silky subsequently married George Turner, who may be kin to Jane Turner Jones. George Turner was on the 1820 Federal census for Belmont County. This is definitely my "Brick Wall," so I'm seeking data whereever I can. Thanks.
