Obit for Roswell
Sutton 1854-1930 (There were Three Roswell Suttons)
Sutton son of Roswell Sutton and Nancy McMinn Sutton was the youngest
of five children born in Scott Township, Steuben County, Indiana, April
27, 1854, died at the home of his daughter, Mrs Clarence Hanselman,
January 10, 1930, aged 75 years, 8 months and 13 days.
His entire life was spent in Scott township except for the last few
years which were spent at his home in Angola.
In 1877 he was married to Emma Jane Waller, who departed this life
March 29, 1912. To this union four children were born, Delevan Sutton
and Mrs Clarence Hanselman of Otsego township, Robert of Angola and
Orvill of Jamestown township. Besides the sorrowing children he
leaves, three daughters in law and on son-in-law, twenty-two
grandchildren together with a host of relatives and friends to mourn
the loss of a loving father, obliging neighbor and a good citizen. He
was a highly beloved citizen in the community in which he lived and was
ever ready with a kind heart and a helping hand to aid those in need.
It is with aching hearts we give him up but it was his will, not ours,
and in the voice of the Savior we will say "Thy good and faithful now
enter thy rest."
