About David Gilbert Sudderth:

They lived on a farm near Leonard, TX.

From "The History of Leonard, Texas 1880-1980", supplied by Nita Pickett.

"David Gilbert Sudderth was born in Gwinnett County near Buford,Georgia. He was the son of Abraham Sudderth (1824-1853) and Temperence Harris Sudderth (1824-1853).........On the way to Texas, which was by ox wagon, Temperence became ill with malaria and died. She was buried somewhere near the Mississippi River (place unknown). It took three months to make the trip. ......David's father married Nancy Brown 1824-1896), a native Texan.....Abraham served with the Confederate Army......David Gilbert Sudderth married Martha Hancock (1853-1940). (His dates are 1850-1929).......Abraham Sudderth returned to Georgia after the Civil War and brought back an old slave of the family who refused to leave when they were freed. He had grown up in North Carolina with members of the Sudderth family and then went into Georgia with other members of the family. David Gilbert and his wife, Martha, built a small house behind their home where he remained until his death. He lived to be over 100 years of age. I have been told that he was treated as a member of the family. He was buried in the Grove Hill Cemetery (I have seen his grave, Gary.). His name was Jack Sudderth, and there is a small tombstone at his grave. I think he is the only black person buried in this cemetery.......Clairrisu Elizabeth Sudderth (1848-unknown) married Jess London and after his death married Lon Tefteller." Joe and B.
