THE WESTERN STAR, 11 June 1909
Obituary of LUTHER H. NUTTER
Luther H. Nutter was born in Wyandotte county, Ohio, May 14, 1846, and moved with his parents to Decatur county, Iowa. From there he moved to Davis county, Missouri.

Several years later, he was married to Maggie Cline on July 3, 1872, when he moved to Harrison county, Missouri, where he lived 22 years. Then with his family he moved to Harper county, Kansas, where he resided for a number of years. Five years ago, he moved with his family to a claim 3 1/2 miles northwest of Coy, Oklahoma, where he continued to live up to the time of his death; which occurred on May 31, 1909.

He was 63 years, 2 weeks and 3 days old at the time of his death. He leaves a wife and seven children to mourn their sad loss, two children having preceded him to the great beyond. They were all at his bedside at the time of his death, except one daughter, Mrs. Chas. Cron, of Eureka, Ind., who came later but was too late to see her father alive. He also leaves two sisters, Mrs. Mary McAllister and Mrs. Sarah Lawrence, who were at his bedside when the Angel of Death came.

Funeral services were held on Tuesday, June 1, conducted by Mr. Miller of Lookout. Interment was made in the Lookout cemetery. Mr. Nutter was a
man of exemplary habits and an honest, upright citizen. He was respected by all who knew him. He will be missed in our community by all his neighbors as well as by his immediate family. May the Lord, who doeth
all things well, comfort them in their great sorrow, and may they all meet him at the resurrection.
Mrs. Maggie Nutter and children and Mrs. Mary McAllister and Mrs. Sarah Lawrence wish to thank all of their friends who so kindly assisted in the care of Mr. Mutter during the illness preceding his death.
