In Reply to: Looking for information on Allen S. Cutts by Anna Schmerbauch Cutts of 431

Hi Anna,
A portrait of Allen Sherrod Cutts hangs in my in-laws' dining room in Augusta, Ga. He was my husband's great grandfather and was Lieutenant Colonel Allen Cutts of the Sumpter "Flying" Artillery. According to what I've read, the artillery was in nearly every battle fought by the Virginia army including Gettsysburg, so most likely the reference to Cutts that you found, is this man. There is a wonderful recount of the movement of the artillery at www.sumpterartillery.com/History.htm He did not die during the war, but returned home to Georgia.

My husband's mother's maiden name is also Allen Sherrod Cutts (yes, a woman named Allen, which is just the kind of thing to throw people researching). She was named for her father, Allen Sherrod Cutts, son of the Civil War Cutts. Her father died in the 1919 influenza epidemic before she was born, later that year.

If you are interested in knowing more, I can ask my mother-in-law! Susan Willingham (married to Allen Sherrod Cutts Willingham)
