Hi, seeking info on daughters of Rev Joseph Spriggs of Va. Lucy Spriggs married Adam Wade Nowlin and they are found on 1880 Dallas Texas Census with her sister Josephine & husband William Love Vaughan. I am seeking proof of dau for William Love & Josephine Vaughan. [Mabel Vaughan born Jan 1882 Dallas, Texas]
Will paste info on Williams line and Josephines death.


The Cutlers were from Boston Mass-
The names seem to have been well known there.

The Rev Dr. Timothy Cutler, who died in 1765, was President of Yale and Rector of Christ [the Old North] Church Boston.

Dr. William Cutler, the first of the name in Virginia came from Boston and settled in Dinwiddie County, Virginia. A memorial breast pin of him and his second wife, which descended to Mrs. John W. Galusha says, “Dr. William Cutler died May 11, 1836 aged 70 years – his funeral was held by the Rector of Bath Parish June 26, 1836 [Parish Registration]. His will dated Dec 9, 1833 and Recorded in Dinwiddie July 18, 1836 – In his will he leaves Wm H Brodnax in trust for his daughter, Maria Love and her children due the death of his son-in-law Theodoric Love. He also mentions his children John H. Cutler, and Susan G. Mason.

ps They owned many properties in Oak Cliff- but I have not been able to trace them. Have wondered if donated to the schools or YWCA. Thanks, Doris
