Historical and Biographical Information

Thomas McClung McCutchan was born in Lexington, Virginia on May 5, 1859 to Albert and Margaret McCutchan. He married Annie Elizabeth Vent on February 16, 1882 in Sangersville, Virginia and the couple had several children together. In 1905, the McCutchan family moved to a farm in Loudoun County. In 1914, the family relocated to Fairfax County, renting Cornwell Farm in Great Falls, Virginia, and moved into the old brick farm manor. The family stayed there for four years, moving in March 1918 to a house on River Bend Road owned by Frank Beaver. The McCutchan family farmed in the Great Falls area for many years. Thomas McClung McCutchan died at his residence in Great Falls on December 28, 1940, and is buried at Arnon Chapel Cemetery.
