Calvin Granger Sutliff (17 Apr. 1808 – 2 Feb. 1852), attorney and abolitionist, was the fifth of six surviving children of Samuel Sutliff Jr. and Ruth Granger Sutliff. Like his two closest older brothers, Milton and Levi, and his younger brother Flavel, Sutliff was a lawyer, and for a time was his brother Milton’s partner. He later formed a law partnership with John Hutchins Also like his brothers, he was active in the abolitionist movement. Unlike Milton and Flavel, Calvin did marry, in 1844 to Hannah Bennett, with whom he had several children. Sutliff’s life ended suddenly and tragically when exposure to weather caused a cold, which later progressed into influenza. History of Trumbull and Mahoning Counties (2 vols.; Cleveland, OH: H. Z.
