R. B. McNutt was a Citizen of the Republic of Texas. He has a special insignia on his grave.
According to Myrtle McNutt Rhodes,
--he was born near Globe Creek which was in or near Mooresville, Maury County, TN.
--He was called Brice; some may have called him R. B. McNutt. --In April, 1934, at the age of 8, he came to Texas with his parents.
--An 1850 Austin County census listed Robert B. McNutt (a farmer), 24, Elizabeth 26, and Sarah, 1 month, at one household. Also in the household: August, a 21 year old laborer from Germany (born about 1829).
--Robert Brice McNutt and his wife remained at the old homestead after Major McNutt moved near Hutto. Sempronius soon became a ghost town due to the railroad by-passing it. Robert B.'s family and Elizabeth McNutt Levy's family soon moved to larger towns, Brenham, Bellville, and Chapel Hill (from Williamson...")
--Nathan W. Bush (his wife's brother) sold the land to Robert Brice for $426.65 on February 8, 1853. Description of the land: part of a half league of land granted to John Fitz-Gibbons by the government of Mexico and lying in Austin County on the south side of Piney Creek (more specifics available); 284-1/2 acres.
--He may have died once yellow fever since there was an epidemic in the area around the time that he died.
