Can someone tell me the parents of MARY POLLY McAFEE born 12 Oct. 1827 GA and her sister MARTHA McAFEE b. 9 Oct. 1825 GA who both married EDWARD SUTTON ?

MARY POLLY McAFEE b. 12 Oct. 1827 GA married EDWARD SUTTON on 15 Feb. 1852 in Rabun Gap, GA per listings.

MARTHA McAFEE ( sister of Mary Polly ) then married EDWARD SUTTON on 2 Dec. 1866 in Rabun Gap, GA per listings.

EDWARD SUTTON was born 1816 in either NC or GA and his grandfather was PHILLIP SUTTON born 1770 NC who md. WINIFRED BRADLEY on 17 May, 1786 in RANDOLPH CO. NC. Phllip Sutton and Winifred Bradley have 11 children listed by some, and their first son was an AMBROSE SUTTON who is father to EDWARD SUTTON. Ambrose Sutton is listed having died in GA, and his son Edward must have married both the McAfee girls in GA.

AMBROSE SUTTON was born 1787 in NC and his younger brother ASA SUTTON was listed born 7 Apr. 1799 in Henderson Co. NC.

We see an ASA SUTTON listed in the 1850 CHEROKEE CO. GA Census who was single and age 51 ( a widower we think ). He is a BLACKSMITH then. Also listed in the 1850 Cherokee Co. GA census is my GGG Grandmother ELVIRA McAFEE born between 1804 - 1805 NC who is then listed by 1860 as ELVIRA SUTTON on her son SPENCER McAFEE's 1860 Marion Co. ARKANSAS Census. We believe that Elvira McAfee Sutton probably died after her 1860 census, and those listing ASA SUTTON have listed his death after 1860, but I have yet to find him in Arkansas after his 1850 Cherokee Co. GA Census.

If the ASA SUTTON born in 1799 were alive and living in GA in 1850 he would have been about the age of 51, shown as age of ASA SUTTON of CHEROKEE CO. GA census then. Since EDWARD SUTTON who married two McAFEE sisters in GA was a nephew to the ASA SUTTON who is son of PHILLIP SUTTON and wife WINIFRED BRADLEY, does any of this ring a bell for anyone researching McAFee's, Bradley's or Suttons ?
