About Our Family Research
Aunt Mary Cutler(Dickey) Landrum began researching our ancestors before I was born. Mother and I continued intermittently, along with cousin Joseph H. Howard (his mother was Letitia Dickey Howard) who went for his father's side. I have attended a couple of Dickey/Howard reunions, but my age (73) and health preclude any further long trips. We have one famous ancestor: Manasseh Cutler, who was written up in the Encyclopedia Britannica, and was pictured on a U.S. Postal stamp in 1937, along with Rufus Putnam, with whom he pushed through the Northwest Passage Treaty to open up land for ex-Revolutionary War veterans and their families, mainly in Ohio. He founded Marietta College. Manasseh Cutler was a doctor, a minister, a Revolutionary War chaplain, a friend of the Frenchman, Lafayette, and a self-taught botanist.
