Thanks, Harold. Evidently we're second cousins! My father, Lewis Alan Cutler, was your grandfather's brother and your great-grandparents (Thomas R. Laura E. Coons)are my grandparents.
I have quite a bit of family history research on the Cutlers if you'd like to share. I am, however, having a tough time with the Coons line. Evidently William Coons, Laura's father, was with the Mormon Batallion and I've looked everywhere (incl. visiting the Batallion headqtrs. in San Diego) and keep kitting a dead end. Have you had success?
Please contact me if you're interested in sharing our family history materials: (801) 226-4748/h or (801) 229-6701/w. Thanks. I look forward to hearing from you. Where are you located?
