Saw your posts on the McNatt-Deadman cemetery. I am looking for a Catherine (Deadman) King. Married to James King living at Lynnville KY before 1865. Possibly a sibling to Van Buren Deadman. If you have anything on this Deadman family that would be great. Thanks Bruce

Walter Dutton

There is some confusion regarding the actual burial place of James Cass Dutton Sr., husband of Matilda nee Mullett.

In the site, TWO graves are shown.

1. Cemetery Kentucky Confederate Home, photo of entryway by Steve Dahl. This says "Death: 1862 Goshen Oldham County Kentucky" and has a brief allegedly accurate story of his freezing to death. Son: Moses Jefferson Dutton. Index # 1776-1202, Pewee, Oldham Co., KY. However, his grave site is also shown as:
2. Cemetery - Goshen Cemetery, Goshen, Washington Co., Arkansas where he had been living for some time. Index no. 4-27-2009. Pictures of the marker are available for this gravesite.

His DOB: 1808, Russell Co., VA. On both indexes. Relationship to Matilda and his children are the same. He served in Company D, 1st Arkansas Cavalry (roster available UNION ARMY). Another source says he died in War Eagle, Arkansas.

Another source says:

"James [SR] and two of his sons, Elias and Andrew Jackson, served in the Union
Army. James brother, Moses, joined the Confederate Forces. James was in
Company D (183 men), 1st Arkansas Cavalry, Union Forces. I understand he
was captured by the Confederate Forces prior to may 23,1863 and
subsequently shipped to either North Carolina or Georgia for detention
for the remainder of the war. He was apparently released at the end of
the war and returned to Arkansas to be with his family. Although this was
a difficult time for all, brother fighting against brother, and I suppose
sometimes father against son, the Dutton family ties remained strong and
prevailed. James died in 1867 at the age of 59. His final estate was
valued at $230 and was divided up evenly among six of his nine children,
at least, I hope it was evenly. I do know it was distributed to the six.

Some of James and Matilda's descendants believe that Matilda died and was
buried in Arkansas. Others believe that she later applied for a
pension and returned to Kentucky. I don't know. Some of her family did
still live in Lawrence County, Kentucky (the Mullets and Gibsons). She
would have been in her fifties. I don't know whether she got a war pension.

He cannot be buried in both places. One of the indexes is wrong. Perhaps one is James Cass Dutton Jr., who is mistaken as Sr. Sr. served in the Union Army, see above, and Jr. may have served in the Confederate. But the roster for 1st Ark. Calvary, Co. D. does not resolve which that was.

The source who provided the 1st Ark. Cavalry info also says:

Children of James Cass Dutton are:
1. +Moses Jefferson Dutton, b. April 19, 1835, Pikeville, Pike County, Kentucky, d. February 28, 1918, Benton, Saline Co., AR.
2. +Elias Dutton, b. February 02, 1832, Scott Co., Virginia, d. September 10, 1917, Kentucky.
3. George Washington Dutton, b. 1834, d. date unknown.
4. Sarah Dutton, b. 1838, d. date unknown.
5. +Andrew Jackson Dutton, b. February 12, 1842, Kentucky, d. March 19, 1921, Texas.
6. Mary Polly Dutton, b. 1845, d. date unknown.
7. +Richard Morgan Dutton, b. 1846, Kentucky, d. 1934, Los Angeles, California.
8. Susannah Dutton, b. 1849, d. date unknown. [INACCURATE]
9. +James Cass Dutton, b. November 03, 1852, Boon's Camp, Johnson Co., Kentucky, d. date unknown.
This one says JR died, date unknown, but evidence shows he lived and moved to California and died after working as a blacksmith, on 22 March 1934, in Montebello, Los Angeles Co., CA. Photographs of gravesite marker available. So the Goshen Cemetery marker must also be SR. But then who is the same person identified as in the KY cemetery?

Help resolving this would be appreciated. Is there a photograph of the marker for the KY cemetery gravesite available? That might help.

Thank you.

RE: Benson Photos
Hey Jake,

Thanks for the offer. Sorry for not responding quicker but I have been waiting to hear via email from John Marshall. He has not answered for whatever reason but the following is what I know from his research:

From the records it appears that Richard Benson built the home on State Line Road between Fulton and Dukedom, about six miles east of Fulton. One of his sons, Martin Carroll Benson lived there and ran a business in Fulton. Apparently they had a family cemetery by a large tree down by the creek? Martin's daughter, Tallulah (Benson) Parker owned the home in 1880.

Here's where it gets interesting; Tallula'a oldest child, Daisy (Parker) Marshall, recalls the farm being out on Sate Line Road and the homeplace being in Fulton?

Jake, if you go to Tallulah's husbands memorial, Dyas Frazier Parker, buried in Illinois, you can see a picture of the old home. If you find the old home I would love to see the pics. The next time I am up that way I plan to look around at the countryside to get a feel of what it must have been like living there in days gone by. I do see from google maps that State Line Road is still pretty rural for the most part.

Thanks Jake!

RE: Benson Photos
Great detective work Jake! Yes, I see where a Mary Lou Hanson has added some info on the virtual flowers of some of the graves there. I did add Henry as Nancy's husband on Sarah Benson's memorial. I should have caught that because the DOB & DOD on my records match that of yours on her memorial. Anyway, I am thankful for all your help and am pleased that our lines have crossed in the past.
I see from google maps that there is a McNatt road in Dukedom. I have tried to find the old Benson-Parker Home on State Line road but am not sure if it is still their or not? I know it was still standing in 1961 and I must soon take a trip up there if for nothing else but just to look around and get a feel for the area where many of my relatives lived. It does look peaceful in that region.
Thanks again Jake and I hope you will eventually link Nancy to her parents.

Benson Photos
Thank you Jake for adding the photos of Richard & Sarah Benson to Find-A-Grave! Nice photos too! I saw them this morning. You next time (God willing) I am up that way I will have to stop by and visit this cemetery.

I am now more curious as I see the Freeman grave next to and connected to their graves?

Hope you have a great week Jake! Thanks again and may God richly bless you and your entire family!

RE: Richard & Sarah Benson
Thank you so much Jake for the offer of the other three transfers but I do not know them?

And thanks for trying to get the headstone pictures in. I hope you are able to re-size them and get them on their memorials.

I do appreciate the transfer of both Richard and Sarah and were able to add the names of their 12 children plus additional information. If you haven't read Richard's memorial please do so. I acquired this information from an older gentleman in whom I am related to but have never met. His name is John Marshall and is a generation closer to Richard & Sarah than I am. His research has been very helpful to me and other family members.

Richard & Sarah Benson
Hey Jake,

Thank you so much for the transfers. I do have some info about them that I will add to their memorials. Richard & Sarah are both from North Carolina. Sarah's dad is James Jones. Richard's line goes to Rhode Island.

They had 12 children together including Martin Carroll Benson, who would be my great great great grandfather. Time is not on my side this evening but I will try to connect many of the dots no later than Friday. Thanks again Jake and if you have any headstone pics of them could you add them to their memorials? Thanks and God Bless!

Jake I'm in SC and researching some Hubbard ancestry in my family and wondered if you had any info on Jane Mcnatt Hubbard 1780-1840 she was Married to John Hubbard 1779-1850 I believe in SC. I think Benjamin Mcnatt who is listed in your listings was from her family in SC. Any info you might have that included Jane would be appreciated.

I couldn't get hold of Alberta. Maybe you could for me?
On the memorial page of Gregory Flyer, the birth year is 1024. Shoudn't it be 1924? It's easy to have finger blunders. I do all the time.
Thanks, and tell Alberta thanks, too.

By the way, do you know if you are related to them? Allen Thompson was my g-g-g-g-grandfather, so Mary would have been my g-g-g-grandfather's sister. Just wondering if we might be related...

According to Family Tree Maker, she is the wife of the brother-in-law of my 3rd great grand uncle. I do a lot of work on collateral lines.
Would you like for me to transfer her memorial and those of her family to you?
