My great Grandfather was George Sutton, champ around 1917 and 1918. My Dad just gave me what we think are my grand Fathers pool cues. I would like to hear from anyone that can tell me how I can verify that these are in fact George Sutton’s cues. Waiting to hear.

I would suggest finding a billiards historian that may have pics of your great-grandfather and see if you can match up any of the cues you have to those in the pics.
Mike Shamos is a historian and writes an article or two in Billiards Digest, maybe you should get in touch with him.

Victor Stein, author of The Billiard Encyclopedia, would be another source. A third might be Mark & Connie Stellinga. Contact them at www.billiard-antiques.com. (http://www.billiard-antiques.com.) If I remember correctly, didn't you bring your grandfather's cue down to Chris' Billiards, in Chicago a couple of years ago? If so, I talked to you, took a look at it, and thought it was really cool! Didn't it have his name engraved on it?
