Cutshaws of Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan Updated July 16, 2004
About Our Family Research
We've been searching for information on the Cutshaws that live in Indiana and Michigan. We think they came through immigration at Richmond, VA (a number of Cutshaws are scattered throughout Va and bordering states.) The oldest name we have been able to find in our direct line is Franklin Benjamin Cutshaw. A cousin has found that he was born in 1837 in Bath, Ohio. Supposedly he is the twin of Benjamin Franklin Cutshaw but we don't have any documents on that yet. He married an unknown Swem, had a least one child-my grandfather, Walter Ernest Cutshaw. Walter married Edna Joy Teall and they had three children: George Leon (Michael), Ray, and Ella Dora. My grandmother, Edna, was born in 1892, my grandfather,Walter, was born in 1872.
