Scope and Content Note

This series is composed largely of material collected by Dr. Cuttino in preparation for the publication of History of the Cuttino Family (1982). The bulk of the papers is original and photocopied correspondence (1795-1982) the earliest of which are: a letter (1795) from Savage Smith of Georgetown, S.C., to Reverend Richard Furman, concerning his forthcoming marriage to Elizabeth Cuttino, oldest child of William Cuttino; letters from Peter Cuttino, brother to Elizabeth, to the Reverend Iverson Brooks (photocopies, 1822) and the Reverend Peter Ludlow (1828); and a series of letters (1828-1829) from Archar Benjamin Smith, son of Savage Smith and Elizabeth Cuttino, to his first wife Mary DeWees. Remaining general correspondence is that between G.P Cuttino and persons knowledgeable in Cuttino family history.

Family records include a photocopy of the certificate of sale of land lot no. 88, Georgetown, S.C., to Elizabeth Coon Cuttino (Mrs. William Cuttino), 1816; the transcript of the will of Henry Cuttino (1854) reproduced in the History of the Cutting Family; recollections of Thomas Peter Smith, ca. 1900; application to the South Carolina Huguenot Society; and a "Genealogy of the Cothonneau Family." Also found in these papers and reproduced in the history is the Cuttino coat of arms and photographs of Cuttino ancestors. A ledger book entitled "Swinton of Swinton" relates the family genealogy of Josephine Saluda Swinton (Mrs. David S. Cuttino, Sr.).

Miscellaneous materials included in this series are news articles and obituaries, family reunion information, "family trees," Confederate States of America muster rolls, material concerning Revolutionary War hero Denis Cotteneau, and a history of Ile de Re', the ancestral home. Short manuscripts written by various family members and two Bibles complete the series.
