  2. 9.  Cassa Ann NUTTER was born 16 Mar 1833, Harrison Co, (W)VA (daughter of John C. NUTTER and Emily C. VINCENT); died Bef 1911.

    Other Events:

    • Residence: 1853, Doddridge Co, (W)VA
    • Census: 1860, Doddridge Co, (W)VA
    • Census: 1870, 1880, Southwest District, Doddridge Co, WV

    Notes:

    It has been incorrectly reported by other researchers that Cassa Ann Nutter's husband was C. W. Stewart. But marriage and census records show that Cassa Ann Nutter, daughter of John C. Nutter and Emily Vincent, was married first to Andrew Jackson Adams, and then to George H. McQuain. The wife of G. W. Stewart was instead Cassandra (aka Cassa or Cassie) Nutter, b. ca 1845 in Ritchie Co, daughter of John Nutter and Mary Mounts, who later married Enoch N. Hobbs.

    1860 Census, Doddridge Co, Virginia (now West Virginia), enumerated on Jul 7 1860:
    A. J. Adams (male), 27, farmer; Cassa, 25; S. T. (male), 2.

    Cassa Adams, 45; son Selathiel T, 22, farmer; wife Suseanna, 20; son Walker S, 3.

    No entry was found in the 1900 Census for Cassa or for her second husband, George H. McQuain. Minnie Kendall Lowther's "History of Ritchie County," p. 236, reports that Cassa married and moved to Ohio and had died prior to that book's 1911 publication. But no Ohio connection has been found for her or either of her husbands, and it is possible that Cassa Nutter was confused with Cassandra "Cassie" Nutter, who did marry and move to Ohio.

    Notes:

    We have found several discrepancies in the research done on this family:
    (1) Jacob Nutter is listed by Minnie Kendall Lowther (HRC, p. 236) as one of the children of John C. Nutter & Emily Vincent, but not by Don Norman. We have found no other reference to this Jacob Nutter.
    (2) Conversely, Don Norman lists Joseph Skelton Nutter and Avery Fillmore Nutter among their children, but Minnie Kendall Lowther does not. Joseph does appear twice as their son in census records, but Avery appears only once and is listed as a grandson. Avery's death record identifies his father as John Nutter, but does not name his mother.
    (3) Lowther identifies one of John & Emily's children as Thomas Nutter, while Norman identifies him as William Thomas Nutter. This appears to be the same person.
