Harry M. Cutter was born in the midst of the civil war in the year of 1863 in Wayne Co., Ohio. He was born to Samuel J. and Christina Stucker Cutter, Samuel lived on the land that his father settled in 1821. There is where Harry could have been born.

Harry took to wife Sarah Jane Starrett daughter of Charles B. and Sarah Sterling Cutter on the 25 of October 1883. Sarah went by her middle name Jane. I find her in the 1900 and 1910 census with Harry listed as Jennie.

Harry  and Jennie had three children they are as follows:

John B. S. Cutter,came along in May of 1885 Wayne, Co., Ohio. John married Edith B., surname not known at this time.

Next  to enter the family fold is a little girl named Christina S. and she was born in Homesville, Holmes Co., Ohio on 3rd of Oct in 1889. Christina would become my great-grandmother when she married Arthur C. McCartney of Holmes Co. Ohio on 4 Jul 1908 in Prairie Township, Summit County, Ohio.

The baby of the family is Lois H. who came calling about 1898. Lois married  John Pitz about 1914. It is with Lois and John that we find Harry living with in 1930.

The Cutter name traces back to New England in the 1600’s and Starrett is either Irish or Scottish.

I found this obituary at Rutherford B. Hayes Presidential Center, there are many obituaries contained in this repository and they are adding more. Drop in and see what you can find! The actual copy came from the Wayne County Public Library Genealogy and Local History Department.

Happy Hunting!
