My lineage also comes from John Nutting and Sara Eggleton. The little I know is that he had 8 children including John (b1651) who married Mary Parker. John had at least one son, Ebenezer (1666 who married Lydia____.
They had another John (born 1709) who married Hannah Read. They in turn had a son Thomas (born 1758) who married Sybil Prescott. Thomas served 3x in the Revolutionary War. He had a son Jonas (1783) who married Mary(Polly) Spaulding. They had 6 children including my Great,great, grandfather (maybe it is three greats!) Hiram Nutting (1812) who married Aseneth Tenney, a descendent of Thomas Tenny and Ann Mighill who settled Rowley, Mass. in 1638.

I would love any additional information or clarification you might have. I am anxious to fill in all the other branches of the family. I found quite a bit of info through I also received much information from a cousin who researched the family while living in New Hampshire.

Gary, do you know how to obtain the book you mention?

Hope to hear from you. Linda

SAMUEL NUTTING was sibling of: John Nutting, Jonathan Nutting and possibly others. SAMUEL NUTTING married JANE HUNNEWELL IN 1728 and had 10 children. Lived in Watertown, Mass. One of their children was JOHN NUTTING born Oct.16, 1730 in Watertown,Mass. This is my ancestor. He married SARAH LEONNARD Dec.17,1772 in Watertown.

He had siblings: Samuel, died without children, Nancy, never married, and _________, father of Samuel F. Nutting & Nancy Nutting of Richmond, Indiana, (lived there in 1860). DAVID NUTTING married JANE HANCOCK Dec.23,1812 in Greene Co.Tenn. and had a son,GEORGE WASHINGTON NUTTING, born Oct. 1813. Need place born, siblings, name of 1st wife (have been told he had 5 wives).

I'm a descendant of Abigail Nutting and Joseph Whitney.They were my 7th great grandparents. Joseph was the son of Joseph Sr. & Rebecca Burge Whitney of Watertown & Chelmsford,MA. I believe that Abigail Nutting Whitney was the daughter of Ebenezer and Ruth Nutting.I have her as being born in Groton,MA on Feb 8th though I don't know what year. She and Joseph Whitney Jr. were married I believe in Groton,MA on Dec. 6th, 1737.
Any information you might have would be very very appreciated as this is all I have on my Nutting line.
