Lucien A. Nutting was a carpenter by trade, and for some years followed that occupation in the town of Farmington, but now devotes his entire time to his trade in the town of Baraboo. He and his first wife had but one child, she dying when Clarence N. was only three weeks old, and since then he has been married twice, his third wife having borne him one son, Charles, who resides near Seymour. Clarence N. Nutting attended the district schools in Farmington, as well as a high school in Fort Atkinson, and made his home with his grandfather from the time he was three weeks old until his marriage, when he rented and bought land in Jefferson county, and resided there six years. At the end of that time he located on his present farm in Greenville township, a well-cultivated tract of 127 acres, which he devotes to dairy farming, making a specialty of Holstein cattle, and White Chester and Ohio Improved hogs. He is independent in his political views, voting for the man from whom he thinks the community can get the most benefit. Nutting was married March 9, 1898, to Cora Potter, who was born in Jefferson county, June 20, 1878, daughter of Ferman and Jane (Cory) Potter, the former a native of New York State and the latter of England. They came to Wisconsin about 1846, and here Mr. Potter became well known and highly esteemed, accumulated property and continued to work his farm until his health failed, at which time he went to live with his son in Oakland township, where his death occurred. His widow now makes her home with Mr. and Mrs. Nutting. The latter was the fifth of a family of seven children.
