Suiter genealogy

john suiterThis is a portrait of my father as a young man. On the cardboard folder is written "John Suiter high school grad Flint Central 1935."

Yesterday I posted some family history from his mother's family. Here is a list of of my father's male ancestors.
  • Jacob Suiter b. 1770 PA

  • Israel L. Suiter B. 1810 OH

  • James P. Suiter b. 1840 OH

  • Charles L. Suiter b. 1878 MI

There is a Suiter Family Association and I have an old copy of their directory, from which I copied this list. Jacob Suiter and his descendants are referred to as the Lawrence County Ohio Suiters.


  1. I am a descendant of Jacob Suier - Lawrence County Suiters. Would like to trade information. Advise if interested. ohbeachlover@bellsouth.net

  2. I am married to a probable descendant of Jacob Suiter. My husband and I are both from Lawrence County, OH. I would love to do a geneology for his family. Contact me at psuiter@adelphia.net

  3. I'm a descendant of John Suiter, born in Isle of Wight County, VA in 1700. Any idea how I can get in touch with this Suiter Family Association? msuiter111@aol.com

  4. I am too a descendant of the Suiters family from Lawrence County OH. vernajwagner@yahoo.com

  5. Thanks for your comments! Don't miss my other posts on the Suiter family.

    It's always good to hear from other Suiters.

  6. The Suiter Family Association is on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/351248231615105/

  7. Jacob Suiter is my gggg grandfather. Jacob had several children. His son Philip Jacob is my ancestor. Much of the family settled in LeClaire Iowa and there is a museum there that has an exhibit about his days as a riverboat pilot. I live in Yorktown VA

  8. Jacob was my gggg Grandfather also. My uncle Glen was the last male Suiter to live in Lawrence county to my knowledge (now in Florida). My mother is now in central Ohio near me.

    1. Thanks for you comment. Jacob has so many descendants!
