    • The Cutler Memorial lists Bradley under the unclassified Cutlers:
      Bradley Cutler, Sr., born in Rhode Island, about 1705[?], married Sabra Wade, resided in the north-west part of the State near the Connecticut line. He settled at Sempronius, N.Y., and died in 1878[?]. Had: 1. Phoebe, 2. Otis, 3. Nathan, 4. Bradley, Jr., (who married Thankful and settled at Ilion, N.Y., and had several children, one of whom, George, was postmaster there several years.) 5. Penelope, 6. Charles, 7. Demas, (who resides in Nora Springs, Ia.,) 8. Almond, and 9. Austin.

      It’s been suggested that Bradley’s father was a Justice Cutler, but there are no vital records for Justice Cutler or Bradley or his children in Providence County.

      From the Book of biographies: this volume contains biographical sketches of leading citizens of Cortland County, N.Y. Buffalo, N.Y.: Biographical Pub. Co., 1898, page 496:
      Dwight K. Cutler, one of the most prominent and wealthy residents of this county, residing in the town of Scoot, where he is engaged in general farmin, and in operating a first class scientific dairy, is a son of Nathan W. and Ruth (Whiting) Cutler, and was born in Sempronius, Cayuga County, N. Y., April 27, 1835.
      Bradley Cutler, the grandfather, was born in the State of Rhode Island, was married to Sabra Wade, and came to Sempronius with his family at an early day. He was a mason by trade, but later turned his attention to farming. He was one of the pioneery men of Cayuga County, and was successful in obtaining one of the largest farms in that section. He was a representative man in every sense; he as one of the founders and a deacon of the Baptist Church, the first building being erected on his farm, he contributing the ground and also largely to the erection of the church. He was a Democrat in early life, later a Free-Soiler and Abolitionist, then a Republican, voting for Fremont, the first candidate of that party. He was elected to most of the town offices. He can truly be called a self-made man, one who relied solely on his own judgement, made his own fortune, and was a conscientious, highly honorable citizen. He died in 1864 on his farm at the age of eighty-six, leaving a large family of sons and daughters scatterd over the state and all thorough the West.

      From A Cutler Memorial and Genealogical History, by Nahum Sawin Cutler, 1889, Greenfield Mass. Under “unclassified records”:
      Bradley Cutler, Sr., born in Rhode Island, about 1705, married Sabra Wade, resided in the north-west part of the State near the Connecticut line. Had: 1. Phoebe, 2. Otis, 3. Nathan, 4. Bradley, Jr., (who married Thankful and settles at Ilion, N. Y., and and several chidren, one of whom, George, was postmaster there seversl years.) 5. Penelope, 6. Charles, 7. Demas, (who resides in Nora Springs, Ia.,) 8. Almond, and 9. Austin.

      The ATWATER CEMETERY, was later known as Reynolds Cemetery. Skilton notes it as, "Sempronius Cemetery - not far from the Church." Bradly, Sabra, and several of their children were buried there. It is located in the NW corner of Lot No. 89, 3/4 mile from Sempronius hamlet and church, on the south side of Frazier Road, as shown on page 65, (1904) New Century Atlas of Cayuga Co., NY. Copied 1959 by Leslie Luther, Moravia, NY.
      This cemetery is horribly overgrown, the back part almost impassable with bushes and briars. Here again I found stones down so long they were entirely covered with a mat of myrtle, which went unnoticed unless you just happened to walk there and feel a firmness underfoot.
      The Frank Skilton records contained 27 names, Leslie Luther has 44, and I found 52. By doing this composite list of these three, we have about 80 names. And I am sure there must still be some we didn't happen to walk on. Copied 1962 by Mabel Crosby, Moravia, RD #1.
