Milo Wilson Nethercutt. Son of Moses F. and Maria Louise Tam NETHERCUTT; great-grandson of Revolutionary War veteran William Nethercutt; father of Mary Bernice Nethercutt Smith; Uncle, Country Doctor @ birth for Merle Mozelle Nethercutt 'Norman'... the founder of Merle Norman Cosmetics, who weighed less than 4 lbs @ birth and was lovingly doctored to life for two weeks by this uncle.

A skilled carpenter, by hobby; but, a teacher and minister by choice. Pastored the Indiana/Illinois circuit of the Christian Church. Avid reader, the source of much of his education, he had a personal library of more than 1000 volumes. He cut good articles from magazines and newpapers and glued them onto the pages of 'mail-order catalogues' to create his own books of knowledge.

Milo's first wife, Etta Nethercutt, as is linked to this page, was born Louretta Cotner, daughter of Easton and Mary Cotner. They married, Louretta and Milo, in 1879. Louretta's death came about with child birth; both, Etta and the infant passed on during that trial.

A friend pointed out that this page doesn't link to his 2nd wife: Hattie Strickland. Author has not found a correct grave for Hattie, even tho she is my great-grandmother. Her own daughter was never sure of her demise. Milo married Hattie about 1891. She was the mother of Mary Bernice Nethercutt; and, she was the mother of a son named Ylo. No I did not mis-spell. There was a question as to the paternity of Ylo, and a soon after divorce. This was a rough 'row' for Milo 'to hoe'.

Milo's third wife, Cora, helped him raise his daughter,Mary Bernice. Mary Bernice really loved this lady; but, cancer took Cora away from Milo and Mary B.

Fourth wife, Fanny, had designed the windows for the church in Carlock, Illinois; a church, for which Milo raised the capital, and gave oversight to it's construction. Nearly 100 years later, sunlight still streams through those very windows.

Milo walked thirty plus miles to the hospital in Peoria, Illinois... the day before he died of pneumonia. I don't understand, great-grandpa, your wife owned one of the newest automobiles in town.

He lies next to his fourth wife; she, next to her previous husband. His grave for forty-eight years, was marked by a funeral home name plaque only, until abt. 1993 when his grandson purchased a stone; and, his great-grandson installed it. The Stumbaugh Cemetery is in a large scale state of dis-repair. Have a few times mowed there... usually local farmers mow it once or twice a year... THANK YOU!
