Biography of William & Newton R. McCutchan
Tompkins County, NY Biographies





McCutchan, William and Newton R., were the sons of Robt. McCutchan, who came to the town of Dryden in 1807, and settled on lot forty two, where his sons now reside, owning the homestead in common. The boys were educated in the common schools, but were self made men. At the age of fifty five Newton married Alvina Morris, daughter of Levi Morris of Ithaca. The brothers have 164 acres of some of the best farm lands in the town, raising hay, grain and stock, paying special attention to dairying. They are recognized in their town as substantial, conservative farmers, men of ability and high integrity, whose lives have proven their word to be as good as their bond. The family came from Glasgow, Scotland, and settled in Saratoga county, N.Y. The grandfather, George McCutchan, served in the continental army for six years, and Robert McCutchan took part in the war of 1812. The sons inherited the best of the Scottish traits.
