- The only places that I've seen Susan/Susannah's parents given as Christian and Margaret are on rootsweb trees, so right now her parentage of Susannah is just a theory. Note that her birth date is NOT possible next to her daughter's. She would have had her child Susanna at age 6 or so. I just can't add on what I may be her parents' cousins ancestors without being more sure of what's going on here.
Margaret Toot's parents seem to have been David Dutte (1729-1801) and Catherine. Note these problems, though: her birthdate here is an estimate by Sonne; according to her, she was confirmed in 1783 which, if that was at age 16, places her birth at abt. 1767 or so. Her sister Sarah was confirmed at age 16 (1788), which Sonne confirms from her tombstone.
There are old stories that Christian King did marry a Toot, fwiw. Parthemore, in abt. 1895, says that he married "Maria-Magdalena" Dutte, and gives Maria-Magdalena's birthdate as 1746. This seems to conflate her (rightly or wrongly) with her sister--whom Sonne has married to a John Kessinger. A date of 1746 would certainly solve the age issue relative to her daughter Susannah. But, if this is the same Margaret, her parents David and Catherine were married in 1755--Parthemore does not give this date. I've seen 1746 as her birthdate repeated elsewhere too, but in all cases it is unsourced.
There is a chance that two different Margarets are referred to here. Note that Parthemore says that Margaret's father David immigrated with a father named not David but Jonas, which is different than what I've seen elsewhere for this famiy. Were there two Dutte families? Was there another Dutte immigrant? I've never seen any other documentation for a Jonas Dutte anywhere.
Conclusions, at this stage: if Christian King is indeed Susan/Susannah King's father, I'd theorize either that 1) Susannah was the child of Christian's first wife, who might have been born in 1746; or 2) there are two Dutte/Toot families with different Margarets. In any event, there is presently no evidence for either theory.
