Northcutt or Northcott?

So which is it – Northcutt or Northcott?

Well, the truth is…. it’s both.  Like many families before the times when legal birth certificates pretty much set things in stone, different family members would often vary their spelling of the names – and this certainly applied to the most literate of people as we (Soap, Soape and Swope, for example are all of the same line in this genealogy).

The family history of the Northcutt / Northcott line in these pages appears to begin with Hosea Northcutt, of whom we know almost nothing.  We have a little more information on his son William, on whom most of this genealogy is based.

William Northcutt and Sarah Williams had five children that we know of.
