|Birth: ||Sep. 15, 1840|

My Great-Great-Grandfather. Andrew was the only child of Samuel Nutter and Hattie Green of Nutter's Fort in Virginia (now West Virginia). Some time after their marriage in 1834, Samuel and Hattie moved west to Wyandot County, Ohio. In 1840, Andrew was born and Hattie died (either in childbirth or soon thereafter). Samuel left his son with neighbors, Artemus and Jerusha West, and returned to Virginia for unknown reasons. He never returned. Artemus West died not long after and in 1848 Jerusha married David Reed. In 1854 the entire family (including Andrew... now known as Andrew J. West)moved to Starke County, Indiana. He served in Co. K of the 13th Indiana Cavalry during the Civil War, along with the brothers of his future wife, Amelia Scott. Andrew and Amelia married in 1867. They had three children (Billy, Alice, and Albert) before moving to Wisconsin, where they had seven more (Jennilin, Minnie, Alta, Otto, Andrew, Sam, and Cora). Albert (Alice's twin) died as an infant, but the rest of the children married and scattered across the upper Midwest. On April 19, 1923 both Andrew and Amelia died, just 32 minutes apart... neither knowing the other had passed. Their children had them buried side-by-side in a custom made double vault.
Mr and Mrs Andrew J Nutter died at Hudson on Saturday, April 19. Amelia M Scott was born in Elkhart County, Indiana December 6, 1848 and at the time of her death was in her 75th year. She grew to womanhood in Stark County, Indiana and was united in marriage to Andrew J Nutter March 3, 1867 and passed away April 19, 1923 at 6 p.m. Four brothers in Indiana survive her.
Andrew J. Nutter was born in Wyandot County, Ohio, Sept 15, 1840 and moved with his foster parents to Indiana in 1854. He enlisted in the Civil War and served two years in Co K of the 13th Indiana Cavalry. He was wounded at Jacksonville, Florida and served several months in a hospital. He was married to Amelia M Scott March 3, 1867. To this union, nine children were born. William L, who died two years ago last fall; Mrs. Alice Julia Wise of St Paul; Mrs. Jennilin Yoder of Havre, Montana; Mrs. O.E. Peck of Havre, Montana; Mrs. G.H. Welkos of Havre, Montana; Otto D Nutter of Menomonie; Andrew J Nutter of Hingham, Montana; Sam Nutter of Haugen; Mrs J.H. Edwards (Cora) of Hudson. (The obituary mistakenly lists Mrs. O.E. Peck as a daughter and omits Mrs George A Manley - Minnie.)
Mr and Mrs Nutter spent a long and happy life together and as they lived so they prayed to die and God in his mercy answered their prayers, he preceding her by only 32 minutes. The bodies were taken to Knapp, where they are sleeping in the same concrete vault constructed at the request of their children.
Funeral services were held at 10:00 a.m. at the M.E. Church at Knapp, Rev. C.O. O'Beirne of the Baptist Church speaking words of sympathy to the heart broken children and many sorrowing friends.
Many, many years, their lives bloomed together;
With the snowdrifts of winter, they faded;
With the buds of spring, they died,
and we buried them together;
Laid them at rest, side by side.
