  • Notes 
    • Joseph was born in Burke Co., NC and married Christina Cope [?] there about 1830. He continued to live in Burke Co. where his first seven children were born, until about 1845/1846 when he moved to Macon Co. His last five children were born in Macon Co. (or Jackson Co., formed from Haywood and Macon counties 1851).

      Jackson Co., NC, history has Joseph as one of the original petitioners for the creation of Jackson Co. from Haywood and Macon Counties. The petition was filed with the North Carolina General Assembly on December 10, 1850. In 1851 he was appointed the keeper of weights and measures for Jackson Co. 22 Mar 1853 Joseph was elected standard keeper for Jackson Co., NC. [source: William M. Helms]

      Joseph Strutton appears as head of family on the 1830 Burke Co. Census Index living in a household adjoining Richard Strutton (son of Absalom, Sr., son of Hezekiah Strutton). Absalom, Sr. is listed on the same census about a mile down the road. The only Strutton heads of families I have found so far in Burke Co., NC are Absalom Strutton b. 1774 (1810 & 1820 census); Richard Strutton, his son (1830 census); and Joseph Strutton (1830 census). Absalom's son John has left Burke Co. for TN by 1830. Absolum, Jr. does not appear on the 1830 census in NC but does apparently appear in Blount Co., TN that year. The proximity of Joseph to other Strutton families indicates some type of familial relationship, but the direct connection between Joseph and other Struttons has not been established.

      It is possible that Joseph was the son of Joel Strutton (son of Hezekiah Strutton and brother of Absalom, Sr.). No information has been discovered yet about Joel and his family other than a listing as head of family on the 1810 Federal Census Wilkes Co., NC. He is shown with one son under 10 years of age. This could be Joseph. Any information helping to establish such a connection would be welcome.

      1850 Macon Co., NC Census lists Joseph Stratton, age 48 - would make birth date 1801/1802.
      1860 Jackson Co., NC Census lists Joseph Strutton, age 51 - would make birth date 1809.
      1870 Jackson Co., NC Census lists Joseph Strutton, age 61 - again would make birth date 1809.
