About John B Nutter

He was the second child born to Andrew Nutter, Sr. (1791-1855) and Malinda Willis Nutter (b. 1795).

He married Mary Hart on June 30, 1842, in either Harrison County, WV.

After she died, he married Mary Valentine.

He raised his family on Jim Run, which is located above Harmony Church about 4 or 5 miles from Oxford, and about 12 to 15 miles to the north of West Union, in Doddridge Co.

He was a carpenter and farmer. He went together with some other relatives, including Sylvanus Nutter, Eli Hart and Josiah Nutter, and they bought a trashing machine, and they operated a thrashing machine business to thrash grain for other farmers. At first a team of horses pulled the thrashing machine, then later they got a traction engine, and used it to plow snow, cut grain and run the family sawmill on Bear Fork.

He died of a heart attack in the County Store at Oxford, in Doddridge Co.

The Hart Cemetery where he is buried in located on Taylor Drain Road, between Jim Run and Lower Run, in Doddridge Co.
