Saw your post on the message board - Izola May Newton was my great grandmother (daughter of Andrew Jackson Newton and Margaret Jones Newton. Her son, William Morris Sutton was my grandfather. I am having difficulty finding any information on Margaret, where I think our Cherokee blood comes in. Have you any information that would help?

William Morris Sutton and Mattie Lee Ruth were my grandparents to. My father was Willie Clarence Sutton.
As to your question no I haven't found anything that would help on a roll number. I wish I could find something.
I did trace Margaret's parents back to Arkansas, then on to Mississippi and Alabama.
The 1830 Pickens co. AL census page 129 has a Freeman Jones Sr. age 60 to 70. On page 124 is a Henry R. Jones age 30 to 40.
