Andy, Unless I missed something it appears that the Nutt Chronicles book of Irene Amato has 41 pages of data on the family of William Henry Nutt. Quite a lot it would seem, but you are right that she cites very little documentation. Incidentally her previous book in an appendix has a list of references although they are not tied to specific pages and they seem to end with William H.'s parents' generation. A Few references relate to the McCown and Spears families.

In my info, I have a Feby Nutt as a syblling of Sampson, William, Robert, Josiah, and John Nutt. Is this perhaps Thomas "F". Nutt? I am of the Robert Nutt and Julia Jenny Denny lineage.

Robert M. Feby Nutt

Beth, do you have any dates for your Robert M Nutt, or the name of his spouse? ccording to Irene Amoto's NUTT CHRONICLES Sampson McCown Nutt's son Robert had a middle initial "G" not "M", was b. 2-24-1830, d. 12-12-1812, and m. Susan Cochran. Do these data fit yours?
Incidentally there were a great many Sampsons and which is which seems confusing.

No, Feby Nutt was probably not Thomas F. Nutt since, again according to Amato, Sampson McCown had a daughter Feaby b. ca. 1836 and m. Humphry Scroggins.

This is the info I have exactly as it is written from my mother: (Again, it may be correct, or incorrect)
Samson McCown Nutt b. 1802, d. 1882; m March 7, 1822 to Mary Spears, m. Mary Morrison Nov. 22, 1862, m. Caroline West July 18, 1875. Born in Lancaster County, SC. Children born to this union were:
John, Feby, Robert, William, Sampson Jr, Martin, Josiah, 1 unknown.
Under Robert Nutt, the info she has reads:
b. October 3, 1851; d. June 12, 1892 (Fordyce Ark.) M. February 8, 1887 to Julia Jenny Denny, daughter of Julia and James P. Denny (my maternal gg grandparents). I know this is a lot, but if our info is incorrect, we want to desperately to correct it! Thanks so much for your help!

Robert b. Oct. 3, 1851, md. J.Jenny Denny 0n Feb. 8, 1874. She was the daughter of Julia Denny. I don't know fathers name. Robt. died June 12, 1892. Jenny died March 20, 1920. Their children were; Dora, Nora, Cora, Samuel, Sidney, Jennee. Hope this helps. Joyce

Your info was very helpful. (I think this is ed who responded to my original message.) If so, I found Irene Amato's two books on the Library of Congress site, but I am not able to obtain them through the LOC. I found a few sites that sell out of print books, and they are currently doing a seach for me to find a copy. I would very much like to get the Nutt Chronicles book for my mother. If you have any suggestions other than what I have done, please let me know! Thanks for ALL of your help!

d 1757 m. Elanor ? they lived in Orange County, VA. He might
have been married a second time to Elizabeth Wran or Rowan.
William Nutt, III married Mary McCowan whose parents were Elizabeth born in Tyrom, Ireland
