CUTTS, JESSE - Well Known Resident of Juniata Township Passes Away.
Jesse Cutts, one of the olds and most highly respected residents on Juniata township, died at his home four miles west of Caro last Friday morning. Mr. Cutts was born in Lincolnshire, England and was the youngest son among eight children; only one sister, Mrs. Harriet Thayer, of Plainsville, Ohio, survives him. At age 26 years, he married Laura Beckwith, at Hampden, Ohio, but she died eighteen months later. He enlisted in the civil war in 1862, serving 2 years and 10 months. In 1865 he married Miss Anna Whiting, at Chester, Ohio, and in the spring of 1866 they moved to Iowa. In the following fall they moved to their present home in Juniata township, and took an important place in the pioneer enterprises that rapidly changed the wilderness into a prosperous community of well-to-do farmers.
He has been confined to bed for the last five weeks and suffered from a complication of diseases. He expressed a desire to be free from his trouble, and said he was prepared to meet his Saviour. Mr. Cutts was a member of the Methodist church, and will be greatly missed by his many friends and neighbors.
He leaves an aged wife and two children to mourn his loss. His children are as follows: F. J. Cutts, who lives on the farm in Juniata, and Mrs. William Hutchinson of Ellington. They were both with him during his last illness. The funeral was held from the Cutts home in Juniata Saturday at one o'clock, and the body was laid to rest in the Brookside cemetery, Rev. Ostroth, officiating. [7]
