The McNutt Family History of Saugus, Massachusetts
We are in an update mode as of this date. To make sure nothing goes wrong there is now a subdirectory Archive If something goes wrong of if you think an error has been made check out the Archive. The stuff there is just as my father prepared it. The new information comes from a variety of sources and it's pretty difficult to do the kind of academic qualification that I'm used to in other fields. Dad had a lot more time than I do right now. Doug McNutt March 2002.
This brief history of the McNutt family of Saugus, Massachusetts, has been prepared so that members and descendants will have information about their ancestors and family relatives. It was written by my Grandfather, Homer E. McNutt in the mid 1980's. (That's Ross' grandfather and my dad, DPM) Two generations of the family lived in Saugus from about 1890 until 1968, with members and descendants now widely scattered throughout the United States. Most of those who lived in the town received their education at the Saugus High School between 1890 and 1945, and at some time were associated with the Cliftondale Methodist Church.
Most of the information about the family for the 19th and 20th centuries was obtained from family members who lived during the 20th century. Early family history was obtained principally from printed references
To read copies of e-mails we have received from other McNutt's and related families press McNutt related E-mail traffic received and sent. Warning the file is getting large and it is unedited and uncensored. Someday I will get around to organizing everything everyone sent me and trying to make sense of it all, but until then it is presented in a "raw" format only. If you would like to share information on your family it can be sent to Ross McNutt at Ross and it will be included in the file in the future.
Many visitors get here via a link from Heartland/Meadows. If that's not where you came from it's worth a peek.
