Pioneers of the Blue Stem Prairie-Sutton Fowler Dugan

I forgot I had this. I sent away for this years ago from the Riley Co Genealogy Society and there is quite a bit of info on my Dugans/Breese's in here. I'll post what I have as time permits.

Sutton Fowler Dugan (Dugean) was born in 1814 in KY and died 17FEB1895 and is bur in the May Day Cem. He married Mary Ann Walker who was born in 1816 in Oh and died 4JUL1904 and is also buried at May Day.
The 1870 Riley Co Census shows that Sutton (or Samuel) was living at Fancy Creek. Also included in that census were his son, Robert, living with a William Allen: and his son, Joseph, who was married. There were many Dugans (possibly brothers) who came to May Day and Green. There was an area called "Dugan Hill" where there was a Dugan everywhere one turned.
Sutton and Mary Ann's children were:
1) James b 14Jan1834 Randolph Co In, d 26 APR1914, married Martha Guilliams, dau of William and Ede (Williams) Guilliams
2) Sarah (Nick's ggg grandmother) b 1837 In, d 4MAR1899, married Watson Clark Brees

5) Eliza b 1846 OH, married Samuel Rupe, whose father was from Hanover, Germany and mother from NJ
6) Robert b 28FEB1849 OH died Apr 1907, married 1) Clara Hulin 2) Anna Bell Ingram

8)John born 2NOV1853 Randolph Co In, d 25AUG1943, married Apr 9,1877 Nancy Flora Putnam. William moved to St George in 1909.
Joseph Dugan, 2nd son of Sutton, enlisted in Co D, 29tg Reg in the Civil War and was discharged 10AUG1865 at New Orleans, LA. His eyes were affected during the war, consequently he was nearly blind for over 30 years. He was known around the community as "Blind Dugan".
