Shutt Families of Muhlenberg County, Ky
Posted by: David Byron Ratliff Date: April 06, 2001 at 07:08:00
  of 333

The below information I transcribed from the 1850 Census of Muhlenberg County, Kentucky. I copied all the information on the family SHUTT listed as living in that County in 1850. I suspect Abraham Shutt, listed in dwelling 264 is the father of my Great-great Grandfather Abram N. Shutt, but Abraham is also, old enough, according to the Census data to be Abram N. Shutt's Grandfather. Next door in dwelling 263 is Jacob Shutt, but Jacob is listed as being born in Maryland. I believe, despite Jacob being born in Maryland and Abraham being born in Pennsylvania, that Jacob and Abraham are brothers. In fact, I believe all the Shutts in Muhlenberg County are related, even though some are born in North Carolina. Several Shutt families live next door to each other, as in the case of Abraham and Jacob, and usually this indicates close family ties. Below are all Shutt families in Muhlenberg County, in 1850:
