Samuel H Cutler Cleveland, Ohio Land Deeds

13 Feb

My mysterious ancestor, Samuel H. Cutler, born somewhere in New York around 1819 and showing up suddenly on the 1850 US Census in Elbridge, Onondaga Co, NY with a wife, Amanda (nee Davis) and a two-year-old daughter, Mary Alice. Mary is purported to be adopted.

In June of 1853, Samuel enters into a land contract for a lot in Cleveland, Ohio and in the end of November, sells his interest in that lot.

On 26 APR 1861, he buys a lot in Cleveland from William Fiske and wife for 250.00$. Below is the original deed from FHL microfilm:

On 31 DEC 1862, Benjamin Walker Ellison (21 years old) and Mary Alice Cutler (Mary is only 14 years old) get married by a reverend for the Western Seaman’s Society.

The next day, New Year’s Day, Samuel goes into the courthouse and records that he sold his lot for $250.00 to his wife Amanda Cutler.

Mary and Benjamin move to Oakfield Township, Kent County, Michigan sometime in 1863. Samuel H Cutler registers for the Union draft out of Oakfield Township in July of 1863.

Then he disappears.
