I’m currently researching one of our oldest (almost) confirmed ancestors. His name was David NUTT. According to an old diary entry from a grandson, he was born to MCNUTT parents. It seems he changed his name sometime in the late 1700′s. As it pertains to Orange County, NC, he was the sheriff (exact year unknown) in the range from 1770′s to 1790′s. Several sources say he was born in Maryland in 1746 and traveled to Pennsylvania, then North Carolina. I am trying to find out more about his early years in hopes of finding out about his parents or siblings. They are listed in several sources, but I can’t find any records of them. David married Rachel CATES, who later moved to Bedford county, Tennessee. “
