Ima [Mewborn, files of] has William Henry Cunningham and Unknown Edwards md to Edith Gibbons, daughter of John Wesley Gibbons and Elizabeth Hardy. Heaven only knows the proof. William and Edith are buried at Rainbow so her maiden name might be on the stone. Have added the first name for Edwards. Any idea which John Sutton the other daughter married? . . . I come down John whose will is on the Lenoir Co archives page through his daughter who md Abraham Simmons first and then somebody Health - forgot his name. My John, I think, had a son John about the right age, but then so did every other Sutton at the time.
