Looking For Info on Guptons in GA, NC, and VA
Posted by: Joy Taubl (ID *****1824) Date: April 30, 2006 at 13:26:49

Hello, My name is Joy Taubl. I have been conducting research on the Guptons for several months and have just found this forum. I'd like to see if anyone has further information on my branch.

As far as I know, William Gupton Sr. came to VA from Belfast and his descendants lived in Old Rappahannock and Richmond Counties for several generations. Then around 1760 or 1770 someone (I can't recall who right now) moved to NC, first in Bute County then in Franklin County after Bute was abolished and split into 2 new counties. After that, at some point Sidney Louis Gupton and his son Morris Elmo Gupton (separate or at the same time, I do not know) moved to GA, I believe to Bullock County, but maybe Screven County. My great grandmother, Helen Gupton, was the daughter of Morris Elmo Gupton. Here's my line (what I have so far):

Helen Gupton

Her parents were:
Morris Elmo Gupton
Belle (Fannie May) Powell

His parents were:
Sidney Louis [or Lewis] Gupton
Carol

His parents were:
Elijah Albert (E. A.) Gupton Jr.
Mary Ann Aycock

His parents were:
Elijah Albert (E. A.) Gupton Sr.
Frances House Leonard

His parents were:
John Gupton
Nancy Bridgers

His parents were:
Stephen Gupton III
Nancy Ann Portes [or Portis]

His parents were:
Stephen Gupton Jr.
Magdalene Garland

His parents were:
Stephen Gupton Sr.
Elizabeth Hartford

His parents were:
William Gupton Sr.
Elenor

Any information anyone can provide would be helpful, but I specifically need more info on Sidney Louis Gupton, as I have little on him. Thank you in advance.
