John Northcut, of Kentucky, married Jane Trimble, and settled on Charrette creek in 1820. He was an ardent Methodist, and used to exhort and preach in a style peculiar to himself. He had three daughters, and was very much opposed to their getting married. He was not willing for them to learn to write, lest they should send letters to their sweethearts; but they all contrived to get married in spite of his precautions. The names of his children were Elizabeth, George, John, Polly, Joseph E., Stemmons, and June. Elizabeth married Mr. Keithey, of St. Charles County. George married Kitty Welch, and raised a large family before his death. John married Kitty Kite, of Warren County. Polly married Nathan Keithley, and lives in Lynn County, Missouri. Joseph E. married Miss Welch, daughter of John Welch, of Warren County. Stemmons married a daughter of Henry Welch, of the same county. Jane married James Welch.
