According to a Nutter genealogy in my possession, Ann Copen was the second wife of Thomas Nutter. She was the "daughter of William Copen, who owned a farm in Elk District."
I'm very interested in Thomas Nutter. I'm descended from Levi Nutter of Nutter Farm, Ritchie County. I believe Levi was the uncle of Thomas. Levi was a son of Matthew Nutter of Harrison County. Thomas Nutter is said to have walked to Kanawha County at the age of 11, seeking employment where his older brother worked at the Kanawha Salines (Malden).
The genealogy says Thomas Nutter first worked on a steamboat (probably in the transport of salt). "After he married, he operated a cooper shop for several years, barrels for salt and other commodities all being made by hand in those days... He was a very active Republican... at one time nominated for sheriff but was in the Home Guards and as a colonel of Militia, he declined the honor." Nutter was a member of the Home Guards from 1861 to 1865. He was a member of the AC Church. (Do you know what denomination that is? It is unfamiliar to me.
With his first wife he was father of eight children. With Ann, his second wife, there were other children.
I'd love to hear from you. Do you know much about Thomas Nutter?
