    Joseph I McNutt was the father of Mary Elizabeth Stewart, nee McNutt who married Ernest Monroe Stewart at Baker Springs and settled in Plunkettville OK. Both are buried in the Pleasant Grove Cemetery at Cove AR.
    I am trying to research to find the parents of Joseph I McNutt and thought they might be listed on his death certificate. Otherwise, if I could find a marriage certificate for him and Almeda Tate which would of been after the 1880 cencus as Almeda was listed as a child at that time.
    Any hints would be appreciated.
