History of Kentucky The Blue Grass State, Volume III Illustrated, The S. J. Clarke Publishing Company, Chicago-Louisville, 1928.

Robert L. Northcutt is engaged in the general practice of law and natural talent and acquired ability have placed him with Lexington’s leading attorneys. He was born November 8, 1873, on the home farm in Grant county, Kentucky, and his parents, Jefferson P. and Lucinda (Webster) Northcutt, were natives of the same county. They were members of pioneer families of that section of the state and had three sons of whom Robert L. is the eldest. The others are: William A., who married Effie H. Burnett; and Fred D., whose wife was Miss Stella Franks. Jefferson P. Northcutt was a prosperous farmer and stock raiser and gave his political support to the democratic party. He was born in 1857 and his demise occurred in 1903. His wife was born in 1841 and passed away in 1915.

Mr. Northcutt was reared on his father’s farm and attended public and private schools of Williamstown. He read law under the direction of John T. Shelby, in 1910 was admitted to the bar and began his professional career in Lexington as a member of the firm of Shelby, Northcutt & Shelby, with which he was connected until April 1, 1920. Since April 1, 1920, he has been associated with George R. Hunt and James R. Bush. They maintain offices in the Security Trust building and a large and important clientele is indicative of the prestige enjoyed by the firm of Hunt, Northcutt & Bush.

On April 20, 1903, Mr. Northcutt married Miss Leila Dooley and they have become the parents of a daughter, Shelby Lee. Mr. Northcutt is a member of the State Bar Association and American Bar Association. He casts his ballot for the candidates of the republican party.
