Surname Saturday – Cutter, Davenport and Butterfield Families of Elkhart, Indiana

My hubby just finished a monograph on the Cutter, Davenport and Butterfield families who lived in the Elkhart, Indiana area from the 1860s to the early 1900s.  Utilizing a variety of sources he documented the lines of this family as well as their occupations in running a livery stable, building Napanee Dutch Kitchenets, and running a company that developed Alka Seltzer. The appendix is seventeen pages of obituaries, wedding announcements and photos of tombstones.  Copies of this monograph will be sent to several historical societies and libraries in the Elkhart area. 


  1. Congrats! I didn't know about the Alka Seltzer connection. Bet that will add to local history and interest!

  2. An example of the fun facts found when working on genealogy. We also remember the Napanee Kitchenette units.
