Generation 11










My Granny and Granddaddy

Alexander (“Jack”) Candlus Sutton (b. June 24, 1907, d. Dec. 4, 1973) m. Rebecca Delleney (b. Nov. 21, 1905, d. June 4, 1992) daughter of John Dawkins Delleney and Martha Eva Till Delleney.

See pictures of the Delleney and Till family.

Jack graduated from Fort Mill High aSchool, and took courses in agriculture at Clemson. In the early years of his marriage, he taught agriculture at Fort Mill High while also running a cannery behind the school. He, like his father, bought and sold mules and lumber to make extra money. He later developed a love for the Tennessee walking horse and owned and showed his own horses and served as president of the York County Horse Show Association for several years. He was married to Rebecca (“Beck”) Delleney on November 21, 1935, daughter of John Dawkins Delleney and his wife Martha Eva Till (Mettie) (a twin). She graduated from Greenbriar High in Greenbriar, S.C. in 1929, and attended Winthrop College in 1931 and then attended Drawghns Business College from 1933 to 1935. When they married they secretly eloped as did Beck’s parents before her. They did not tell anyone even of their engagement except for Beck’s sister Lucy (“Sister”) and Tub Griffin. A few days after their marriage, they found out that someone had seen them coming out of the preacher’s house and had told her daddy.

Both this Sutton family and the Griffins were members at Philadelphia Methodist Church, in Fort Mill at this time. This church was an old white board church until sometime in the 1940’s, Jack volunteered to tear it down so that a new one could be built. He did this as a Beck sat and watched. The church stands today as it was rebuilt then with red brick.

Jack and Beck Sutton had the following children:

1. Alexander Candlus Sutton, III
m. Mary Magdeline Stockman.

2. Thomas Dawkins Sutton, Sr.

First - Linda Lee Safrait


3. Sarah Rebecca Sutton (“Becky” or “Beckiot”)
