The Elusive Benjamin Tuder Jr
Posted by: Robert Tedder (ID *****8532) Date: July 11, 2010 at 13:41:46
  of 1054

I found on the NC Pension Roll of 1835, Part 2, a Benjamin Tutterton. He was identified as being a private in the Orange County, NC, militia. His pension started 21 September 1833 when he was age 82. This would make him born in 1751. This age eliminates the Benjamin Tedder with no children on the 1755 Beaufort NC tax list.

My supposition is that this Benjamin is the Benjamin Tuder Jr intimated by documentation at the 1781 estate sale of Mary Rose, mother of John and Benjamin Tudor. Benjamin is listed as senior at this estate sale. The 1751 birthdate would fit Benjamin Jr. I have previously listed on this forum all of the places that Benjamin was listed and don't believe all of these Benjamin listing could be Benjamin Sr.
In addition, Granville County was one of the counties used to form Orange County. Last name changes were common it that age

I believe there is a high possibility based on DNA and location that the children of Benjamin Sr were Benjamin Jr born 1751, John Tudor, later Tedder, born around 1752, William Tedder born around 1753, Sarah born around 1754, Rebecca abt 1759, James abt 1760, and Harmon Tuder/Tedder abt 1762. DNA at 67 markers differs by only two genetic distances between me, a Harmon descendant,
and a descendant of John Tudor, Brother of Benjamin. A William descendant matches me perfectly at 37 DNA markers. Since most deviations occur before 37 DNA markers, this could be an almost perfect match at 37 markers.
