Reverend Sutton's gentle spirit and mild temperament endeared him not only to his congregation but also to the other citizens of the town as well. In the December 19,1902, issue of THE ENTERPRISE, it stated, 'Methodists here do not rejoice alone at the return of Reverend Sutton. He has made a fine impression during his pastorate this past year.' The church records show that the church saw phenomenal growth while he was here, with sixty-nine new members added to the roll!

Reverend Sutton left Williamston in 1904, but his health began to fail and by 1920 he had to retire. He died in 1937 in Fayetteville.
