Research Notes

Middle initial is A.[6] or R.[7] Consistently R. in all Company A Remarks.

There are seven George Cutlers in the 1870 Boston, Massachusetts city directory. Tracking him down is proving difficult.

Our George is not the George A. Cutler, child of Annie Skillings and Nathaniel Cutler of Exeter, New Hampshire who passed in 1864. Could he be John G. Cutler, child of Ann and Rufus Cutler of Exeter, New Hampshire? Find a Grave reveals the G. to stand for Garrison.
