Finding Our Warrick County, IN Ancestors

Clutter, Gilbert

Transcribed from the book "History of Warrick County" by Goodspeed, Chicago: Goodspeed Bros., 1885, p. 141, submitted by Judy.

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.
