Biographical Sketch of D. L. Sutherland, Jefferson Township, Johnson County, Missouri
From "History of Johnson County, Missouri," by Ewing Cockrell,
Historical Publishing Company, Topeka, Cleveland, 1918.
D. L. Sutherland, ex-judge of Johnson county and formerly one of the prosperous stockmen of Jefferson township is now a resident of Windsor, Henry county. He was born in 1846 in St. Clair county, Missouri, the son of Uriah L. and Margaret J. Sutherland. Uriah L. Sutherland was the son of Daniel Sutherland, who was a native of Logan county, Ky., and of Scotch descent. Daniel Sutherland served in the War of 1812. His son, Uriah L. Sutherland, came to Missouri from Kentucky in 1838 and settled in St. Clair county on the farm where his son, D. L., the subject of this review, was born eight years later. Judge Sutherland was reared and educated in St. Clair county, Missouri. In 1868, he came to Johnson county, after selling a small farm of 30 acres, which was located in Vernon county, Missouri, and had been given him by his grandfather. With the proceeds from this farm in Vernon county, D. L. Sutherland purchased 40 acres of land in Johnson county, where he be gan farming and stock raising. The farm cost him $25 per acre. He was employed by "Jim" Wall, a pioneer trader, to buy cattle and from "Jim," Mr. Sutherland borrowed $80, with which he bought 42 head of hogs. He fed these hogs and later sold them for $250, which he immediately invested in calves. From this humble beginning began one of the most remarkable careers in the stock business in the state of Missouri. Judge Sutherland states that he never kept book of his finances, but in some way he always came out ahead at the close of each year. He invested his savings from time to time in land and at one time was the owner of nearly 3000 acres of land in Johnson county. He gave each of his children 80 acres of land and livestock sufficient to obtain a start in business, when 21 years of age, and thus his original holdings have been decreased. He is at present the owner of a splendid stock farm in Henry county, near Windsor, to which city he and his wife moved about 9 years ago and where he is engaged, with his sons, in the stock business hadling black Aberdeen Angus cattle. At the time of this writing, they have a herd of 125 cows, which is the largest in this section of the state. Practically all the Sutherland farm is grass land. It is exceptionally well improved and there are seven tenant houses on the place, which are occupied by his assistants. In 1871, D. L. Sutherland was united in marriage with Elizabeth Garrett, the daughter of J. W. and Ann Tanda Garrett. To Judge D. L. and Elizabeth (Garrett) Sutherland have been born seven children: James O., a prosperous stockman residing near Windsor, Mo., a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this volume; Leland B., Windsor, Mo.; Sam H., Windsor, Mo.; Mrs. Margaret Botts, Mangum, Oklahoma; Mrs. Edna Ruffin, at home with her father, Windsor, Mo.; Eldon E., of Johnson county, and Roland G., of Pettis county, who are associated with Judge Sutherland in stock raising on the farm in Henry county. For many years D. L. Sutherland was a magistrate in Johnson county and he served faithfully and well as judge of the county court in Johnson county. In that, he imitated his father, who for several years prior to the Civil War was a highly respected judge in St. Clair county. Judge Sutherland is a stockholder in the Citizens Bank of Windsor, Missouri. He is a man possessing many qualities worthy of the greatest respect and consideration and no life within the past decade in the state of Missouri has been more remarkable, more full of suggestion for the youth of today. Judge Sutherland and his estimable wife are always "at home" to their numberless friends, welcoming all who come to visit them at their beautiful residence in Windsor.
Daniel married Mary Elizabeth Garrett, daughter of James Washington Garrett and Ann Tandy Perry, circa 1870 in Johnson Co., Missouri. (Mary Elizabeth Garrett was born in Sep 1850 in Johnson Co., Missouri and died after 1910 in Windsor, Henry Co., Missouri.)
