Name: Cutshaw, William

Unit: 175th, Co. K Private

Death:

Cause/Notes:

Addenda: CUTSHAW, William (Newport Twp.) <span style="font-size: small">His brother Shannon died but William did not. He was married to Susannah Blair and they had a large family of children. He was from Newport Twp and his pension file shows him as of the 175th OH, Private, Co K. William actually died at the train station in Tulsa OK while he and his wife were waiting for the train to return them to Marietta after being in Tulsa visiting their daughter per the widow's file for Susannah. He is buried at City Cemetery in Tulsa. A photo of his headstone is available on line. Have never figured out why he is listed as having died during the War. There was no other William Cutshaw in his unit or in the Newport area???? Just one of those mysteries for which we will never have an answer! Shannon and William were sons of Conrad Cutshaw and Margaret (Glasgow Dunfee) as was my great grandfather, Henry Hoblitzell Cutshaw aka Marcellus/Cell/Zell/Sell Cutshaw who married Sabra Elizabeth Robinson. -- Submitted by Carolyn Westberry</span>
