Hi ,My name is Kathryn and i have just started researching my family history,My Grandfather comes from U.S.A but moved over here to Australia when he got married, my Dads Australian and so am I.
I have only been able to find out as far back as my great great grandfather.His Name was James Milton Clutter, i'm unsure of his D.O.B or D.O.D, or the name of his wife, He had 2 sons one i'm sure was Harry Clutter and the other was Paul Howard Clutter (my great grandfather)Born 17th July 1895 and died 1980 in Virginia ( i'm sure he had a farm there)Paul Howard Clutter was married to Lillian Hariet Ruff (daughter of Frank.R.Ruff and mother unknown).they had 2 Children Viola Clutter born January 1918 and Paul Howard Clutter Jnr born 6th Febuary 1920 in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania.Lillian Died in 1928 age 33 from a heart condition when Viola was 10 and Paul Howard Jnr 8years old. Paul Howard Clutter Snr then went on to marry his second wife Ella Ehrlich who had a son from a previous relationship Lester, Paul Howard Clutter Snr adopted Lester and therefore Lester also had the last name Clutter but isn't actually blood related. Lester ended up Marrying Virginia and had 4 children Christine, Randall, Bruce and Wendy Clutter all born sometime in the 1950s ( as i said earlier these "Clutters" are not actually blood related but the information may help with my search). The 2 Children Viola Clutter and Paul Howard Clutter Jnr from Paul Howard Snr first marriage to Lillian Ruff, Viola Clutter married Fred Bailey and had 4 Children Patsy, Jimmy, possibly Fred Jnr?(unsure) and Billy Bailey. Paul Howard Clutter Jnr (my grandfather) moved to Australia When he married my Grandmother Jessie Margaret Cantwell,My uncle Robert was Born in U.S.A and my Dad here in Australia But they did go back to U.S.A when my Dad was little and Lived in Cleveland Ohio But then moved back to Australlia for good.
If anyone has any information on my line of Clutters it would be apprieciated as i can't seem to trace back further than my Great Great Grandfather.
