The King Family History

 

 

There are two King family branches in the family history.  They may be interrelated but this is unknown.

 

 

This is William M. King (1839-1915) and his wife Eva C. Shufflebarger (1843-1915).  William M. King was a Civil War Veteran of the 50th VA INF.  He was wounded in action at Fisher’s Hill on Sep. 22, 1861 causing the amputation of his left arm.

 

He died of an apparent  heart attack in 1915 and his obituary was tactfully titled by the newspaper “WILLIAM KING DROPS DEAD.”

 

A very rough estimate of the date is 1890-1900.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is William Kirby Sutton (1866-1941) and his wife Sarah Jane King (1865-1951).  They were both born and lived their entire lives in Pulaski Co., VA. 

 

With them is their son John William Sutton (1889-1874) and daughter Elizabeth Clarey Sutton (1892-1973).  From the children it is possible to date this photo as app. 1893.
