2015 Reunion Registration Form

Plans have been made for the Twenty-second Biennial McCutchen Trace Reunion. We will be gathering in Nashville, Tennessee on Aug. 7-9, 2015 at the Hampton Inn & Suites Nashville – Airport Hotel, 583 Donelson Pike, Nashville, TN (615) 885-4242. Ask for the McCutchen Reunion group room rate of $109.00 per night plus tax. The room rate includes a complimentary hot breakfast, high-speed Internet, fitness center, and airport shuttle.

Autosomal DNA

Autosomal DNA testing is the latest breakthrough in genetics and can be a useful tool in genealogy. In 2009, 23and Me launched their test dubbed “Relative Finder”. Following on their heals in 2010, Family Tree DNA launched “Family Finder” and in 2012, Ancestry launched “AncestryDNA” which was at the time more affordable solution. Since then prices have dropped and all three offer the test for $99.

Query: McCutchan Children

This photo of McCutchan children was purchased from the Antique Mall in Lexington Va. The dealer, who was selling it, purchased it at auction in either Augusta or Rockingham Co., VA. It is a daguerreotype with the writing on the back. While it is faint, you can plainly make out “Annie A. or H. McCutchan”, “Peach Grove, Virginia”, “Middlebrook” and “ Augusta County”. The boys names are not legible. The image likely dates to the period 1848 – 1855.
