McNutt Family Info:
W. H. McNuTT, M. D. The medical profession of Roane county is ably and worthily represented by Dr. W. H. McNutt, of Harriman, who since 1905 has been engaged in practice in this prosperous city. He is by birth and training a Tennessean, having been born at Kingston, Roane county, March 22, 1857, a son of James W. and Catherine (Hors- ley) McNutt, and is a member of a family that has been long identified with the best interests of the Big Bend State.
The McNutt family was founded in America by the great-grandparents of Doctor McNutt, natives of Ireland, of Scotch-Irish descent, who emigrated to this country prior to the War of the Revolution, and settled in the colony of Virginia. There was born George McNutt, the grandfather of Doctor McNutt, who became one of the most prominent figures of his day. He migrated to Tennessee in early manhood, and participated actively in the Revolutionary and Indian Wars, became one of the founders of the First Presbyterian church of Knoxville, to which city he came in 1790, and took an active part in its affairs, being a member of its official board. With General White and John Adair he built the fort in that city, and in 1794 became one of the trustees of Blount College. James W. McNutt, the father of Doctor McNutt, was born in Knoxville, Tennessee, in 1816, and received his education in Washington College, near Bristol, Tennessee. He became an early physician, being one of the first graduates of the Nashville School of Medicine, and studied under the preceptorship of Doctor Ramsey, the noted state historian. For years he practiced his profession in Kingston, and had patients all over the surrounding country whom he visited on horseback. In addition to following his profession, he was engaged in farming, owning a large tract of land, and prior to the War between the States was the owner of a number of slaves. Before the war he supported the principles of the Whig party, and after the close of hostilities transferred his support to the democratic organization and was known as one of the influential men of his community. For years Doctor McNutt was connected with the Masonic fraternity, and his religious support was given to the Presbyterian churc-h, in the faith of which he died in 1881. He married Catherine Horsley, who was born in Maury county, Tennessee, and died in 1867, and they became the parents of three children, of whom two are living: W. H.; and John P., an attorney at Rockwood, Tennessee. The sister, Anna, wife of Thomas Littleton, of Kingston, Tennessee, died February 27, 1906. The maternal grandfather of Dr. W. II. McNutt, a native of England, was a miller by vocation, and owned one of the first mills in Maury county, in which section he died.
Dr. W. H. McNutt secured his Bachelor of Arts degree at Maryville College in 1881, and in 1890 was graduated from the Medical Department of the University of Tennessee, at Nashville. After his graduation from this institution he entered upon the practice of his profession at Knoxville, where he continued for eight years, and then removed to Kingston, where for some time he was physician of the State Penitentiary, and also was engaged in private practice for one year. In 1905 he came to Harriman, and this city has since been his field of endeavor. The medical practitioner who would succeed must possess many qualities of mind and heart not included in the curriculum of the schools and colleges he may have attended. In analyzing the career of the successful physician, it is invariably found that a broad-minded sympathy with the sick and suffering and an earnest desire to aid the afflicted have gone hand in hand with skill and judgment. Dr. McNutt is fortunate in possessing these characteristics, and by energy and application to his professional duties has built up an enviable reputation. A
hile a resident of Kingston, he served for several years as county physician, was for two years city physician at Knoxville, and is now city health officer of Harriman, having also served as county health officer of Roane county. He has shown an active and intelligent interest in the work of the various medical organizations, and has also been interested in fraternal movements, being a member of Southgate Lodge, No. 569, F. and A. M., and of Chevalier Commandery, No. 19, of Knights Templar. He gives his allegiance to the Democratic party, with which he has been identified since becoming a voter, and while a resident of Kingston acted in the capacity of postmaster for four years. With his
family, he attends the Presbyterian church. Vol vm— 15
In 1886 Doctor McNutt was married (first) to Miss Minnie Lowery, who died in 1898, leaving one son: Frank, manager for the Acme Milling Company, of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Doctor McNutt was married (second) March 15, 1898, to Miss Eva Andrews, daughter of Dr. W. W. Andrews, who was a practicing physician in Wisconsin up to the time of his death, in December, 1895.

|Mary Lois||RE: Last Message Robert Alexander Early|
Sorry, I thought I had replied to you some time ago on your private e-mail address that you provided to me. We do not have a bible record unfortunately, and the only records we have are the census records and his marriage record. I would think that the consistency of his date of birth in the census records over the years would help to validate his birth date. If I find anything else I'll be happy to let you know. He was quite alert mentally all of his life.
Lots of illness in our family now and it's been difficult to find time for genealogy recently and could be for some time... sorry for the delays. Mary
