Gilbert Clutter, one of the few remaining old pioneers of this
county, is a Kentuckian by birth, born February 6, 1815, in Bourbon
County. He is the oldest of nine children, only himself and youngest
brother now living, born to John and Mary (Gilchner) Clutter, with whom
he removed to Warrick County , Ind., about the year 1823. Gilbert
Clutter was raised from early boyhood in Boon Township, this county, and
in fact this township has been his home for over sixty years. His
education is of the common school order, being mostly acquired after
becoming man grown. Selecting farming as his vocation through life, he
has steadily followed that occupation, and while he has not become
extremely wealthy in so doing he has become the owner of a comfortable
home and a good farm of 172 acres. He is a firm advocate of the
principles of the Republican party, and during the trying times of the
late war was a stanch supporter of Lincoln's administration. At the age
of twenty-two years, Mr. Clutter was married to his first wife, who died
December 12, 1868 , leaving the husband and two surviving children a
record of true Christian life. December 21, 1870, Mr. Clutter married
Sarah J. Day, by whom he is the father of one daughter, Eva. Both he and
wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
