    • Facts and Events
      Name Abraham Sudderth, Sr.
      Gender Male
      Birth? 28 December 1767 Albemarle County, Virginia
      Marriage 16 Feb 1786 Burke County, North Carolina
      to Martha 'Patsy' Sumpter
      Death? 19 January 1853 Caldwell County, North Carolina

      On August 24, 1844, the Clerk of Court for Caldwell County, North Carolina, recorded depositions of the testimony of Abraham Suddereth,Sr, age 82(?), and Henry Sumpter, age 77(?), to support the Revolutionary War pension claim of William Edmiston. The deposition also gives testimony to the frustration of 19th century documentation. Figure 3 shows how the clerk recorded Abraham's name as "Abraham Southard" in the actual deposition on page 1. Figure 4 shows how Abraham's name is shown as "Abraham Sudderth" in the summation signed by the Justice of the Peace. Figure 5 shows Abraham's signature. In addition to the confusion over names, it appears that the clerk may have reversed the two men's ages. Henry Sumpter made the US Census of 1860 where is age is listed as 94, (possibly a slight exaggeration) residing with Mary Adams, age 50.

      The depsition documents are from the Bureau of Pensions file R3243.
