During the course of some of my research, I've come across the following mentions of Cutts' in "The Family Letters of Thomas Jefferson."Granted, some of these are just blurbs, but I think it's pretty cool, regardless.I come from Robert Cutts, b1619, and I believe this Richard Cutts came from his line, as well(?).
These letters are referring to:
*Richard Cutts (b.1771) - Maine Congressman, Republican 1801-1813, Superintendent General of Military Supplies, 1813-1817 and then Second Comptroller of the US Treasury 1817-1829 *wife, Anna Richard Cutts (sister of Dolley Madison - wife to President James Madison, 4th President of the US)
My favorite has to be the line where my ancestor is mentioned alongside greetings to the President (James Madison?): **From Thomas Jefferson to his granddaughter, Ellen Wayles Randolph:** "PS My friendly respects to the President, and homage to Mrs. Madison and Mrs. Cutts." & "Mrs. Madison will leave Philadelphia tomorrow and be here with Mrs. Cutts."
**From grand-daughter Ellen Randolph to Thom. Jefferson:** "Mrs. Cutts I have not seen since I received your last letter."
**From Thomas Jefferson to his daughter, Martha Jefferson Randolph:** "We have little company of strangers in town this winter.The only ladies are the wives of Messrs. Newton, Thruston, W. Alston, Marion, Mumford, Blount, Adams, Cutts and Mr. McCreary, expected."
