Edmonson Cutsinger, of the firm of Thompson, White & Co., was born near Edinburg, March 1, 1845, the fourth child and second son born to Samuel and Elizabeth Cutsinger. He had the advantage of a common school education, and was reared a farmer, which has been his life occupation. Upon arriving at his majority he began life for himself. He now owns a large farm near Amity, this county, which is well stocked, he being one of the prominent stock feeders of the county. He became interested in the starch factory at Franklin, in 1883, to which town he moved in March, 1883, and where he has since resided. He is one of the successful businessmen of the community, and a liberal contributor to all public enterprises. Politically, he is an aggressive democrat. He was married, July 5, 1866, to Miss Clara E. Carroll, who was born October 22, 1847, in Bartholomew County, Ind. To this union three children—two sons and one daughter—have been born: the daughter, Claudia B., survives. Mrs. Cutsinger died October 22, 1885. She was a worthy member of the Christian Church. Mr. Cutsinger is largely acquainted in central Indiana, and is highly esteemed.
