Meet the family!

orcutt-family-tree-for-webpage-001This is the story of one Orcutt family in America. Having arrived by 1663, the generations saw most of American history firsthand. Throughout the ages, the Orcutt’s appear to have been hard-working, god-fearing, responsible citizens.

A couple themes might be found throughout the generations. From the time that fourth-generation Caleb proudly passed down his joining tools, the Orcutt men seem to have been skilled carpenters. Secondly, in many cases, they seem to have attracted wives from interesting, respected families. For this reason, where possible, information has been included about the maternal lines that have contributed so much to this family tree.

  1. Welcome to the geneablogging community! William Orcutt and Mary Lane, as well as John Washburn and Elizabeth Mitchell, were my 9th great-grandparents. I am descended through John and Mary (Beal) Orcutt and Samuel and Deborah (Packard) Washburn. I’m looking forward to your blog posts for more insight into my collateral lines.

  2. Thank you so much for all this information. I share this line of Orcutt’s. Henry Orcutt, brother to Orson, is my Great-Great Grandpa. I appreciate all the research and information you have provided. I look forward to more! 🙂
