Bio and Links
Bio Photo My name is Sarah Alexina (Lexie) Henry Van Pelt and I grew up on the George McNutt farm 5 miles east of downtown Knoxville, Tennessee along the river. George McNutt settled the farm in the late 1700's and direct decendants have been on the farm since. There is a McNutt Family Cemetery on the farm. I have the information on all the family members buried there.

Other family members are buried in both Old Grey Cemetery, Lynnhurst Cemetery and Highland Memorial Cemetery. As I have time I will be adding these as well.

I have taken photos in Hillcrest Cemetery in Augusta, GA. I am not related to any of the ones I have added in Georgia so if one is your relative please let me know and I will be happy to transfer the memorial to you.

I would be happy to share information on my family. Anyone may use any picture that I have taken. I'm more than happy to contribute.

RE: McNutt Family
Dear Lexie,

I have been meaning to get back in touch with you and get you some of the research that I have done and current also. So funny that you have done the Ancestry test. I originally tested at FTDNA, my favorite testing company, but just yesterday, I sent in my dna to Ancestry! I dislike some things about Ancestry, but decided to take advantage of the things that I do like in spite of the things I do not like.

I have a lot going on right now, but after this coming weekend, I will be avoiding distractions and focusing on the task of clearing my mother's possessions from her home and getting the house on the market. When I take breaks, I will be using them for genealogy/dna, so hoping that you and I can really make some headway.

Have you any knowledge of a connection between your George and the McKnitts of Manokin Hundred, Somerset Co. MD? I am becoming more and more suspicious. Our DNA may help us out. I was working on a presentation for our family reunion, but spent too much time on my presentation on Sarah Ann McNutt's husband's family (Kinsey) and did not get the McNutt one completed. I hope to work on this and see where it leads.

Sometime between now and the time that our DNA test results show up, let's find a time to chat by phone. So excited that you contacted me again!

McNutt Family
Dear Lexie, Thank you so very much for offering all of this information. I am a descendant of James McNutt and Mary Sharp. I believe James to be related to George McNutt (who m. Isabella Callison) in some way, but have not been able to figure it out yet. I manage a number of DNA profiles of McNutt descendants, and at least one of them matches a descendant of George). I would love to know if other McNutt descendants have tested their yDNA or autosomal DNA.

RE: White McNutt
I posted a picture for Rosa Chamberlin. I was at the cemetery the other day and looked for Anna Haas McNutt but didn't see her. I haven't been through the entire cemetery, so maybe I will come across her some day. Debi

RE: White McNutt
I found Rosa Chamberlin, wife of N. W, McNutt. You can't see the lettering very well. Anna Haas is already in find a grave. She is buried with Hermann Haas. Does this help? I haven't been to the cemetery in a while. I still have pictures to upload before I get more. Let me know if you need anything else.

Hi Lexie,
In the Augusta area are Newman, Tucker, and a little bit of Groover and Pritchard. Do you ever go to Aiken County? I have a lot of gaps over there for Jack's and Barbara's relatives. That would include: Taylor, Cushman, Woodward, Odom, Dunkley, Shipes, Padgett and Hair.
Most of my mom's relatives are in south Georgia and my dad's too except a line from the Charleston area. Some of the Groovers and Pritchards moved to Augusta though.

RE: Gannon/Hillcrest
When it comes to an obituary, "a native of..." generally means born there. By the same token, the city byline doesn't mean where they died, but it means where they resided. A friend who used to work at a newspaper told me this. That's one reason I don't use the byline city as the place of death, unless the obit specifically states they died in the same city.
