Cutler is a small fishing town on the Maine coast between Lubec and Machias.
The story on the Cutler family name is that Abraham Cutler, Susan’s grandfather, emigrated from Russia in the 1920’s but actually entered the United States via Canada. Abraham’s real last name is not known for sure because he either took the last name of Cutler or was given it by an immigration officer. We’ve never been able verify any of the information about Abraham Cutler and he never wrote anything down, but the area of Maine that we are in now has many small seaports and it would have been easy for somebody to take a coastal ship from New Brunswick or Nova Scotia into the US in the 1920’s. Could this be where the family name comes from? Unlikely, but you never know.
