      Notes 
      • (From history of Sutton posted on Ancestry.com)

        "There once existed in this vicinity a sect know as the 'Live-for-evers.' They held, among other singular tenets, that if one seemed to be dead, faith, accompanied by certain manipulations by the faithful, would restore him to life. Mr. Fletcher came one rainy night, and found them holding a meeting at his house; and, not being in favor of their views, ordered them out. But on account of the rain they refused to go. So, being enraged, he said, 'If you fear rain more than fire you can stay;' at the same time seizing the peel [wooden oven-shovel] he drove it into the fire, and began scattering embers and coals among the crowd until they dispersed."
