Mr. McNutt was born in Rockbridge county, Va. , in 1790, and removed to Wythe county, Va., about 1815, where he taught a school and was pastor of ' 'Anchor and Hope Cfatrch.” The house of worship, built of logs, still stands on the McGavock lands, near Max-Meadow. Here the elder Mc- Gavocks, many of the Kents, Crocketts, Grahams and other Presbyterian families were accustomed to worship. The name is singular. This part of the valley of Reed creek was called

24 The McGavock Family.

the ” Valley of Contention and Strife,” two parties bitterly and long contending at law for the ownership. One of them, as he closed his survey, striking his staff in the ground exclaimed: ' Here is my anchor and hope; here, in this valley of contention, I end the strife.” Hence the name; and on that spot, the start- ing point and terminus of that survey, the church was built. Mr. McNutt was also pastor of New Dublin Church, having been installed over it in 1S16. His pastorate over these churches closed in 1828, when he removed to Rockville, Ind., where he died 21 January, 1869.

For nearly fifty-five years they lived together, happy in each others esteem, confidence and love. As wife, mother, neighbor and Christian she was an example and pattern for all. After years of slow wasting and much suffering, patiently borne, she died, 6 January, 1876. ' Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her.”

The following sketch is condensed from an article by another:

son county, Tenn., 27 July, 1796, trained in the best schools of his time, at one time a pupil of the celebrated Gideon Black- burn, D. D., completing the full course at Cumberland College, Nashville, and reading medicine in the office of Dr. Roane, he graduated at the Medical University of New York in 18 19, and immediately afterwards settled in Franklin, Tenn. He soon laid the foundation of confidence in the hearts of the people, which grew with his years and was maintained to the last. His con- geniality, liveliness, entertaining conversation, and stia-viter in modo made him a pleasing companion, welcomed in every social circle; and these qualities stood him in good part in his profes- sion, eminently fitting him for practice among the gentler sex. He was remarkable for his politeness, to the young as well as to the aged, alike at home and abroad.

” By the unanimous voice of the Williamson County Medical Society, notwithstanding his reluctance to occupy positions of prominence, he was made its President, which post he filled with signal dignity and ability.

“A decided and consistent Christian and member of the Pres- byterian Church, he filled his place sans penr et sans reproache.

” Having retired from the active duties of his profession upon the completion of its fiftieth anniversary, and being past three- score years of age, he spent the remaining years of his life in quietude, but not in indolence, at his home near Franklin, Tenn., amid his children and grandchildren, at whose hands he received respectful veneration and loving attention up to the time of his death, which occurred May 15, 1881.”

county, Yu., 31 January, 1794, married Amanda P. Harding,

23 October, 1S23. She, the eldest child of John Harding and

Susannah {nee Shute), was born 23 October, 1807, and died 24 October, 1873.

“Francis McGavock came to Nashville, with his parents, when but two years old, and was educated at its University under Dr. Priestly. In early life he had charge of the State Office for the registration of lands. For half a score or more of years he was Clerk of the Chancery Court at Nashville.” An intimate friend says of him: “He was a man of large public spirit and strong personal attachments, a true specimen of the Old School gentleman. Dignified in bearing, but kind of heart, the unworthy approached him with awe, his equals with respect- ful ease. Hospitable almost to a fault, and ever ready to extend the hand of help to the needy and worthy, he lived as near the ' Golden Rule ' as any ever did.”

By his energy and industry he added largely to his estate, being possessed at his decease, which occurred 23 December, 1866, of valuable houses and lots in Nashville, and lands in Davidson and Cheatham counties, Tenn.

A custom of Mrs. McGavock's vve note with pleas- ure, and commend to all who have the means of doing likewise. It has been her habit for years to take to her house from two to three orphans, generally from the asylum in New Orleans, to act as household servants; at the same time educating them, giving special attention to their religious training, and when they are of age paying the outfit agreed upon, and finding them suitable homes and employment. We have seen the fatherless and motherless little ones as happy as larks, and as gentlemanly and ladylike in their deportment as the most fastidious could desire.

Mr. McGavock was a successful farmer on a large scale, and in his dignified but pleasing manners reminded one of a gentle- man of the olden time. He has always avoided public life, the comforts of home and the retirement of private life being more congenial to his tastes. He died 7 June, 1893.

Joseph Cloyd, 80, son of David, born in that part of Mont- gomery which is now Pulaski county, Va., 11 May, 18 13, mar- ried, 23 May, 1838, Mary E. Byars, daughter of Col. William Byars and Elizabeth {nee Beatty). She was born in Washing- ton county, Va., 23 October, 1813.

In departing from the plan of not putting under a head num- ber, and not recording a second time the name of one who is without children, I do so in this instance, because Joseph Cloyd deserves a prominent place in the history of this family, and because of the intimate and friendly relations between him and myself. I lived in his house two years, was his pastor six years; he largely aided and warmly befriended me in times of trouble and difficulty, and so I learned to know and appreciate his worth as a Christian and a friend, his usefulness as a citizen and an

officer in the church, he being a Ruling Elder in the New Dublin Church, of which I was pastor from 1866 to 1872. Major Cloyd was one of the most experienced and successful farmers and graziers in Southwest Virginia, and was one of the first to introduce thorough bred Durham cattle in that section of the State. His excellent judgment, large experience, and untiring industry procured him the position of Purchasing Agent for the Southwestern District, from the Confederate Government, with the rank of Major, which office he ably filled, holding it until the close of the war. His wife, Mary, in her sphere was his equal, and, co-operating together, the good estates each inherited have been largely increased. Not blessed with children of their own, the children of others, already largely benefitted by them, have reason to rise up and call them blessed. Major Cloyd died 19 July, 1884. Mrs. Cloyd died 23 May, 1892.
