Maryville Record, Friday, March 4, 1904

Sunday night at 11:30 o'clock occurred the death of Hugh L. McNutt, one of Blount's highly esteemed and prosperous citizens at his home three miles from town. He was born May 6, 1834 and was therefore 69 years, 9 months and 22 days old at the time of his death. He was married to Amelia E. Tipton March 13, 1856, who died nearly three years later. Two children were born to this union: Mrs. Arch Hitch and Mrs. Sam Clark. On December 19, 1860 he was married to C.J. Ambrister, who survives him. Eight children were the result of this union, seven of which survive him, the first dying at the age of one year. He and his wife were members of Mt. Lebanon Baptist Church for many years, but frequently during his illness, expressed his intention of moving his membership to Maryville Baptist Church. Mr. McNutt was a good citizen, and a token of the esteem which the people held him was the large concourse of friends who met at his home Tuesday to pay the last tribute of respect to him. The funeral services were conducted by Rev. W.L. Cates, Pastor of the Baptist Church, assisted by Dr. Wilson and Rev. H.A. Goff at the home, afterwhich the large funeral cortege moved out to Magnolia Cemetery where the remians were tenderly laid away in the silent city of the dead.
