The Nutting Family Papers contain account books and family letters from the mid 19th-century. The account books are from Truman Nutting's shop and mill in South Amherst, and the letters trace the westward movement of family members as they left Amherst for Ohio.
The Nutting Family Papers consist mainly of a series of letters and two account books. The letters are from the children of George Nutting, written as they and their families moved westward and settled in Ohio. These letters provide important insight into the family and to the history of northeastern Ohio. The fifty-five letters, dating from 1836 to 1857, also provide information on South Amherst and its people. There is a calendar of the letters available.
The account books are from Truman Nutting, a plane and tool maker in South Amherst. One book dates from 1833-1851, with a second volume overlapping the period 1845-1851, and are of great value as insight into the economics of skilled craft work during the first half of the nineteenth century. The account books have a modern index.
