Most of the Sutton Family Papers were donated to the Missouri Historical Society on January 5,
1958 (58-0001), by Mrs. Harry Kemmerer, courtesy of Charles F. Rehkopf. Mrs. Kemmerer was
born Ruth Wilson, daughter of Sarah and William Wilson. Sarah was the daughter of John L. and
Margaret Sutton. A biographical sketch of Richard Cotter, written by James Sutton Harrison,
was added to the collection on March 17, 1967 (67-0022). It was donated by Mrs. Trifon von

John L. Sutton was born to John and Catherine Compton Sutton in 1795. The family resided in
New Jersey. Two years later, another son, James C., was born. In 1817, John set out for St.
Louis. James followed, and after a prolonged illness while traveling through Ohio, arrived in
1819. The two brothers were employed as blacksmiths and enjoyed success at their trade. James
is credited with introducing iron-clad wheels, iron- and steel-pointed plows (the Sutton Plow),
iron harrow teeth, and iron printers sticks to the area. He also made the locks for the old Spanish
jails. In 1825, James retired and purchased 300-400 acres of land from Charles Gratiot. James
married Ann Wells of St. Louis in 1829. John Sutton never married and died in 1830. James and
Ann Sutton had eleven children, nine of whom lived to adulthood. James bought more land in
later years. In 1840, he donated land for a school that would later be known as Benton Station
School. James became involved in a steam flour mill that also manufactured lead pipe, sheet
lead, flaxseed oil, steel plows, and yarn. The Suttons were also known for their beneficent aid to
orphan children. The couple lived on the Sutton homestead (in what is now Maplewood) until
their deaths: Ann in 1875 and James in 1877.

Born in 1830, John L. Sutton was the oldest of James and Ann’s eleven children. At age
nineteen, he ventured to California to seek his fortune. He returned to St. Louis three years later.
In addition to working as a farmer and stock raiser, he was also involved in other enterprises
such as mining in Colorado and Montana and cotton planting in the South. John married
Margaret Smith of St. Louis in 1858. The couple had six children. John became the owner of the
Sutton homestead at his father’s death. John died in 1909.

The Sutton Family Papers consist of accounts due to John L. and James C. Sutton while working
as blacksmiths, and later accounts of James. The papers also contain deeds and land transactions,

legal papers, receipts and bills, tax receipts, and correspondence of and to the Sutton family. The
papers are primarily arranged chronologically; however, in some cases documents are filed by
subject. A few items are filed oversize.

Other collections in the Missouri Historical Society Archives that include Sutton references are
the John Richardson Papers, Sappington-Marmaduke Family Papers, Antoine Soulard Papers,
William L. Sublette Collection, Dexter P. Tiffany Collection, Cyrus Peterson Battle of Pilot
Knob Research Collection, Chouteau Family Papers, Hamilton R. Gamble Papers, Lindenwood
College Collection, Manuel Lisa Papers, John B.C. Lucas Family Papers, and the St. Louis
History Collection. Most of these collections contain only a brief mention of the Suttons and
these usually pertain to accounts, receipts, letters, or land transactions. The Margaret Sappington
Townsend Family Papers contain more Sutton family information as Margaret was the
granddaughter of John L. and Margaret Sutton. The Margaret Sappington Townsend Family
Papers include correspondence, invitations, programs, clippings, and diaries.’
