David Nathaniel Cutts
9/17/1889 - 9/29/1924
(Shown at age 26)
David Nathaniel Cutts was born on September 17, 1889 in Calhoun Co., Florida and died on September 29, 1924 in Gadsden Co., Florida. He lived to be 35 years old.

He was called "Sweetie". He married Annie E. Cooper, they had two daughters, Thelma Lucille Cutts ( 1/11/1918 to 9/2/1980) and Emily Ellen Cutts 2/17/1923 to 12/16/2004).

My mother said that he lost the eye while working in a grocery store in the Altha vicinity. It seems that Coca Colas were originally just shelved and sold at room temperature (making them somewhat volatile since manufacturing wasn’t as closely controlled back then). He was placing Cokes on a shelf about face high when one “exploded” resulting in glass shards being embedded in his eye. Story told by J. Mulder Brown
