He purchased 50 acres of wilderness at Mashamoquet, CT, (futurePomfret) before 1700. He signed a petition for town organization in 1713. He was named town collector in 1714. In1715 he was given liberty to build himself a pew in the meetinghouse.

Progress. Petitions. Pomfret.

 

During the Indian war the family of Captain Sabin were the only white inhabitants of the future Pomfret now known to us, though it is possible that Benjamin Sitton, styling himself of "Mashamoquet in Nipmug Country," who purchased of the Danas in 1698, "fifty acres of wilderness land at a place called Mashamoquet, bounded west by Windham Rode," was also a resident.

In the autumn, the house was completed so far as had been specified, and was probably opened for public worship and town-meetings. December 6, 1714, various new officers were chosen. Deacon Sabin, Ensign Grosvenor, Cornet Sawyer, Jonathan Hide and Nathaniel Gary were appointed selectmen; Nathaniel Sessions, constable and tavernkeeper; Benjamin Sitton, collector;

Minister and Meeting-House. Church Organization. Second Land Division.

 

May 9, 1715, the town voted, "That the space in the meeting-house at the west end, between the stairs and door, be a place for boys to sit in. Also, that Lieutenant Chandler shall have liberty to build a pew for himself and family in our meeting-house, at the south side, between the great door and the next window. Also, that Benjamin Sitton shall have liberty to build a pew for himself and family in the meeting-house, adjoining to the east of Lieutenant Chandler's.

Benjamin Sitton, son of John and Elizabeth House Sutton, Jr., was born March 22, 1674. Benjamin evidently left Scituate as a young man, perhaps already married to Lydia, whose maiden name and marriage records have not been located. The birth of their first son, Christopher, born April 23, 1696, is recorded in Woodstock, Conn. Their other 5 children were probably born in Promfret, Conn., the area he next appears. Benjamin Sitton is mentioned many times in the "History of Enfield, Conn.", and early deeds list him as a husbandman and a yeoman, both of which would mean that he was a farmer. In the history of Enfield, Benjamin's name was spelled, Sitton, Sitten, Sittan, Sittern, Citron, Siton, and Citton, but no record of it spelled Sutton. Benjamin left Pompret sometime between 1714 and 1729, when his wife Lydia died in Somers, Conn.

The marriage intentions of Benjamin Sitton and Rachel Bigbie, a widow of Ashford, Conn. were published December 19, 1730, and on March 7, 1731, the wife of Benjamin Sitton was admitted to the congregational Church in Somers, from the church in Ashford. Benjamin Sitton died in Somers, December 18, 1742, and Rachel, his widow, died May 7, 1760.

It is known that the eldest grandson,Joseph Sitton was born in 1745 in Virginia.

At the time of the Rev.War,most of the descendants called themselves "Sutton". Later they spelled it "Sitton".

In 1922 Hugh Sitton of Corsicana Texas looked up records in London England . He learned that the original emigrant, John Sitton and a brother to Mr.Sitton in England who had great wealth in coal mines.

On June 9, 1729, John, a blacksmith and farmer, married Elizabeth Pindell,

daughter of Philip and Elizabeth Holland Pindell. In 1730, their first child, a daughter was born and named Elizabeth, named for

her mother and grandmother. A record has been found that her grandfather, Philip Pindell, gave her a little slave girl named

Sarah, age 5. In April 1732, John and Elizabeth were the parents of a son, Benjamin, no doubt named for his grandfather and

Benjamin Jr., who died in John's home in September of 1731. On August 15, 1733, twin sons were born to John and

Elizabeth, Philip, named for his grandfather, Philip Pindell, and John, named for his father. Other children of John and Elizabeth

were Christopher, born ca 1738, William, born 1742, and Joseph, born October 15, 1745. It is believed that the later three,

along with John, one of the twins, were all veterans of the Revolutionary War. No place or dates of John or Elizabeth's deaths

have been found.

Philip Sitton, born August 15, 1733, one of the twins born to John and Elizabeth, has been hard to trace. his wifes name was Hannah, maiden name and date of marriage unknown. Several records of Philip Sitton are found in the Orange County, N. C. records of the 1760's. Philip died in 1788, leaving land in both Randolph County, N. C., and a grant in Chatham County, made to his orphans under the administration of Joseph Sitton, his brother. The only known children of Philip and Hannah were John, born October 30, 1763 and Philip, born November 7, 1770.. Since John and Philip were both grown and married when their father died, there were evidently other children, since Joseph was administrator of his orphans.

At the time Joseph Sitton was given custody of the Philip Sitton children, he was living in the central part of North Carolina, and the first seven children of Joseph and his wife, Diannah Beck, were born in North Carolina. their eighth child was born in the Pendleton district of South Carolina in 1790. Five more children were born to them in South Carolina.

In the 1790's, Joseph and Diannah Sitton took their 13, children, sons and daughters-in-law, and a few grandchildren, and moved over into Tennessee, where they lived for some 17 years, then on to Missouri territory. Joseph and Diannah Sitton are buried in Bryants Creek Cemetery near Troy, Missouri.

John and Philip, sons of Philip and Hannah Sitton, did not leave South Carolina with their uncle Joseph, but remained for the present at Georges Creek, S. C. John Sitton, born October 30, 1763, married Sarah Rigby in March of 1780, raised nine children, and is known at the progenitor of the South Carolina Sittons. A few years before his death in 1843, John received a land grant, and settled in what is now White County, Ga., where he and his wife are buried in the church cemetery of the old Mt. Pleasant United Methodist Church, six miles north of Cleveland, Ga. Many of John's descendants are still in the Greenville, Pickens and Easley areas of South Carolina.

Note: FOUNDER OF THE SITTON IRON FORGE OF MILLS RIVER NC .THERE IS A HISTORICALMARKER ON NC191 AND SOUTH MILLS RIVER ROAD THAT TELLS OF THE SITTON FORGE AND GILLESPIE GUN SHOP.

Philip Sitton, subject of these notes, was married May 17, 1786, at the age of 15 1/2, to Winifred Bradley, daughter of Lawrence and Winifred Wisdom Bradley. It is believed that Philip and Winifred came down to South Carolina with his Uncle Joseph and other members of the Sitton Family. Philip and Winifred lived several years in the Georges Creek area of South Carolina. this is just a few miles southwest of Greenville, near Easley. There is no way to know just when Philip and Winifred moved from Georges Creek to the Mills River area of Buncombe County, N.C., now Henderson County. Philip and his family are listed in the Buncombe County 1800 U. S census. He is listed as Philip Sutton.

Philip Sitton and his family were among the early settlers of the beautiful Mills River Valley, and he left his mark on the area. He came to Mills River before the age of 30, and established one of the first iron forges in Western North Carolina. In 1788, the General Assembly of N. C., passed an act granting three thousand acres of land for "every set of iron works, as a bounty from the state to any person or persons who will build and carry on the same." This bounty may have enticed Philip to come to North Carolina. In 1804, the court of Buncombe County ordered that 3000 acres of land be granted to Philip Sitton for the iron works which he was operating, on what is now Forge Mountain in Henderson County, N. C.

The establishing of this iron works was one of the most important contributions made to the development of this section. Iron mined from this place, some on the side of the mountain where the Sittons lived, and other obtained on the Boyleston side, then hauled over the roof-like ascent and downward pitch of Forge Mountain, was manufactured under the direction of Philip Sitton, much of it by his own hands. From the loops and bars of iron made at the Sitton forge, early settlers were furnished with tools of every description to aid them in taming the wilderness and adding refinements to their primitive mode of living. I have copies of the land grants given to Philip Sitton by the state of North Carolina for the use of Iron-works, one deed is for 2186 acres, the other for 1000.

Philip and Winifred Sitton's family continued to grow until 1809, when their eleventh child was born, a total of eight sons and three daughters.

When Philip Sitton settled at Mills River, the nearest church was the French Broad Baptist Church, located just off N. C. Highway 191, and some 10 miles from where Sitton lived. The Sitton family attended the French Broad Church for many years, making the long trip by horseback or buggy. As more families settled in the Mills River Valley, it was natural that they thought of establishing a church nearer home. Philip Sitton and his family were instrumental in the establishment of the Mills River Baptist Church in 1833. On June 27, 1835, the church was officially organized, with Philip, his wife and several members of his family making up about half of the charter membership.

Philip Sitton was very active in the Mills River Church, being mentioned many times as a delegate to the conventions and was a church leader. The following statement is recorded on page 51 of the first book of minutes of the Mills River Baptist Church. "We are called on to record the death of Brother Philip Sitton Sr., who departed this life 19th of June 1843." Philip was buried upon a hill near his home place, overlooking the site of his old Iron forge. He was laid to rest beside his wife who preceded him in death. The old grave yard is now known as the "Sitton-Gillespie Cemetery."

Notes for AMBROSE SITTON:

This information generously supplied by Bert Sitton, Jr.

Ambrose, born 19 April 1787, was probably born in Randolph or Chatham County, N.C. before the Sittons left for South Carolina. On a deed made to Philip Sitton in 1804, Ambrose Sitton was listed as the chain bearer for the surveyor. About 1815, Ambrose married Gracie Carter, daughter of Edward and Mary Brown Carter. Edward Carter was 29 May 1761 in Bucks County, PA, and came to North Carolina where he married Mary, daughter of Daniel and Grace Craven of Randolph County, NC. Edward's family moved to Chatham County in 1764, then to what is now known as Yancy County, N.C. Edward then moved to the area know as Democrat in Buncombe County, and built a gristmill there. In 1816, Edward, his wife and some of his family moved to Rabun County, Georgia, where he received a grant of land for his serving as a sergeant in the Revolutionary War. Ambrose and Gracie Sitton were in a group that moved to Rabun County.

The first mention of the Sitton Family in the records of Rabun County, is that on February 25, 1825, Ambrose Sitton undertook to purchase land lot 134 in the Valley district, by giving Job Hammond of Franklin County, Georgia nineteen promissory notes amounting to $560.00. However, Ambrose failed to meet the payments on these notes and the lot was sold at Sheriffs sale to Pleasant Watts. Watts afterwards sold the lot to Jesse Carter (brother-in-law of Ambrose) for $600.00.

Notes for LAWRENCE SITTON:

In 1832 he was Baptised into the fellowship of the Beulah Church and the following year was ordained a deacon of the Church. His membership was sustained in the Beulah Church until May 27, 1843, when he moved his membership to the Mills River Baptist Church. During the remaining 30 years of his life, he served the Church in many offices and was highly respected .

During his life he worked in his fathers iron forge, was a farmer with considerable land holdings, and operated a grist mill.

4. PHILIP7 SITTON, JR. (PHILIP6, PHILIP5, JOHN4, BENJAMIN3, JOHN2 SUTTON, JR., JOHN1) was born December 23, 1790 in South Carolina, and died Unknown in Walker County, Al.. He married MARY (POLLY) BLYTHE September 13, 1807 in Henderson County NC, daughter of THOMAS SR. and ELIZABETH CHAMPION. She was born August 14, 1790, and died Unknown in Walker County, Al..

Notes for PHILIP SITTON, JR.:

Philip Sitton Jr., second son of Philip and Winifred Sitton, was born December 23, 1790, probably in South Carolina. On September 7, 1807, Philip married Mary "Polly" Blythe, daughter of Thomas Blythe Sr., and Elizabeth Champion. Four of their 8 children were born in North Carolina before they settled in Walker County, Alabama. I have names and birth dates of all their children, taken from their family bible and sent to me by one of their descendants.

Several years ago, I corresponded with Andrew Jackson Sitton, former mayor of Pyote Texas, a descendant of Philip Jr.'s son James. Mr. Sitton said that his grandfather, James Sitton lived in several states. He was practically driven out of Alabama because of his anti-slave sentiments and his feeling about the Confederacy. James was a farmer, iron-worker and a preacher, being a "Faith Healer". It was reported that people came to him, and he traveled many miles on horseback, to pray and "lay hands" on the sick. Philip Jr. and Polly probably died in Alabama, but their descendants are scattered throughout many states.

John is listed in the 1820 Buncombe County census with a wife, 4 sons, and 2 daughters. In the 1830 census he is listed with a wife, 6 sons and 3 daughters.

He joined the Beulah Baptist Church of Henderson County on August 19, 1820, wife not listed, and was given a letter of dismission on July 19, 1823. At one time he was a trustee of the Mills River Baptist Church.

In the 1850 Henderson County census, he is in the household of Hodge and Sarah Huggins of the Big Willow Section. At one time John Sitton Sr., was excluded from the French Broad Baptist Church for "putting his wife away", but was later re-admitted to the Mills River Church, where he held membership until 1860.

Nothing definite is known of John's children but it is my belief that George Sitton born 1818; Philip Sitton born 1814 and Benjamin Sitton norn 1818 are his sons. There must have been a John, Jr., as John is listed as John Sr. in church records and land deeds.

Notes for NANCY ELIZABETH MYERS:

NANCY ELIZABETH MYERS, WIFE OF WILLIAM FIELDEN

Nancy E. Myers was born in Alabama, March 11, 1858, daughter of Winifred and Burgess Myers. During early childhood she moved with her parents, brothers and sisters to Ellis Prairie, MO., where she grew to womanhood. February 10, 1878, she was married to Wm. Fielden. She was a teacher both before and after marriage. A few years after marriage she accepted Jesus Christ as her personal Savior and friend and united with the Liberty Missionary Baptist church of Texas county, Mo. In 1889, she and her husband became charter members of Sucess Missionary Baptist church, where their membership remained until they united with the First Baptist church of Bolivar, Mo. She was a faithful and consistent Christian, a thiter, a devoted wife, a loving mother and eer ready to help the sick and needy and give comfort to the bereaved. To this union were born two children, Dora and Lucie. The latter, Mrs. Moss F. Smith was with her during her last illness. She departed this life Monday, March 14, 1927, at 10 a.m., after a 12 day illness of measles. She had attained the age of 69 years and 3 days. Dr. J.H. Bridges was the attending physician and wife relatives and friends rendered faqithful and loving service and thought all was going well until just a short time before her departure. The change came as a great surprise to all. A weak heart, no doubt, was the cause of fatality. Telegrams were sent to her daughter, Miss Dora Fielden who was teaching in South Mountain Industrial Institure, Bostic, North Carolina; also to her brother, J.S. Myers of Ellis Prairie, Mo. Mis Fielden came as quickly as bus and train service could bring her and arrived at 9:40 a.m., Wednesday March 16. The funeral service was conducted at the home at 2 p.m., March 17, by Rev. G.A. Bauey, pastor fo First Baptist church of Bolivar, Mo. The passages of scripture used were taken from the Gospel of John, eleventh chapter and 2 Corinthians, chapters four and five. The song service was rendered by a mixed quartet, Mr. and Mrs. Claude Blue, Mrs. Mildred Millican and Mr. E.T. Devin. The sons used were, "O Think of the Home Over There", "Does Jesus Care", and "What a Friend We Have in Jesus". Beautiful floral offerings were sent by neighbors, friends, Mission Circle No. 2 and the Ministerial comference of Southwest Baptist College. She leaves to mourn their loss, an aged husband, Wm. Fielden, the two daughters and her brother already mentioned; also two sisters, Miss Nicie J. Myers, and Mrs. .W. Hart of Redlands, California, besided a host of nieces, nephews and friends. After the funeral service, her body was laid to rest in the city cemetery. (There was more but was omitted from site). 3

26. JAMES FITZ8 SITTON (PHILIP7, PHILIP6, PHILIP5, JOHN4, BENJAMIN3, JOHN2 SUTTON, JR., JOHN1) was born May 05, 1828 in Walker County, Al., and died 1890 in Saint Jo, Searcy Co., Ark..

Notes for JAMES FITZ SITTON:

James Sitton was born in Walker County, Alabama, where his parents, Philip and Polly Blythe Sitton, settled after they left the Mills River Valley of Henderson County, N. C. James was a staunch supporter of the policies of Abraham Lincoln, and was forced to leave Alabama with his family. After a short time in Illinois, he went to Missouri where he remained until after the Civil War. Going from there to Arkansas, he was a resident of Saint Jo, Searcy County, until his death in 1890. He was a man of pronounced view, and fearless in the manner of expressing them. He served as Justice of the peace in Alabama, Missouri, and Arkansas, as office for which he was amply qualified.

James was a farmer, iron worker, and he preached on the side, being a faith-healer. It was reported that people came to him and he traveled many miles on horseback to pray and "lay hands" on the sick.

He married Sarah J. Wilson, Daughter of Thomas Wilson, who moved from South Carolina to Georgia in pioneer days. She died in Searcy County 1n 1917 at age 90.

Silas Sylvester Treat was born in Searcy County, Arkansas and reared on a farm east of St. Joe, Arkansas. He married Mary Alberta 'Bertie' Rainbolt the daughter of J.J. Rainbolt who was a farmer and Justice of the Peace in St. Joe. Both were under age so his parents signed for him and John J. Rainbolt, her father, signed for her.

Silas and Bertie moved to Hill County, Texas in 1903 with father-in-law, John James Rainbolt stopping for a short time in Haskell Creek Nation Indian Territory before they moved to Hill County Texas by boxcar with the animals and furnishing in one end and families in other end. the trip took about thirty-six hours before they got off at Abbott Hill County Texas. J.J.'s third wife had died of influenca and he was left with eight other children.

They stayed in Hill CO. TX until about 1911 when Silas and Bertie separated after Frank had died of a spider bite or complications from swallowing a stable. Silas took the four older boys and moved by wagon to near Ft. Cobb in Caddo County, Ok where his aunts, Butler and Reeces, were living.

Silas couldn't read or write; signed with as X. His word was as good as a written contract.

He met and married Mattie Rogers in 1912 and started a second family. He took any work he could find and moved from place to place to find it. One can follow his movement by examining the places where his children were born. Pumpkin Center to Gertie to Pascal to Natura to Beggs to Morris to Henryeta in Oklahoma.

In Beggs Silas and son, Jerome, ran a diary and delivered milk. In the late twenties, Silas has a livery stable and store in Lawton and ran it until his son Jack died of pneumonia and he moved back to Natura, Silas was an 'outside man' for the bank in Beggs and was a deputy sherrif in Okmulgee County.

In the late 1930s he started moving his family back and forth between Oklahoma and California where they worked as migrant workers living in Davis Camp in Brentwood, CA which was a migrant workers camp with tents and worked in the nuts and fruit orchards

May 22, 2004 the Treat annual gathering took place at Dripping Springs State Park. The irony of the location at Clovis Point is that Silas lived in a house at the spring with the creek running through the cellar about 1938-39. The pavilion where lunch was eaten is located in the pasture of Silas'land.

His heart wore out and he died moments after holding his new great grandson. He is buried in the Morris Cemetery.

Buchanan Funeral Home, Okmulgee OK.
