Offutt Family Genealogy

Confederate Offutt's

Confederate Flag

By the time the Civil War started the Offutt Family had spread out from Maryland moving in almost every direction. Because of this Offutt's were found on both sides of the conflict. One can only wonder if they knew that members of their extended family faced them across those many fields of battle as the war continued. Some were killed in battle, others were killed by disease even before they reached the fields of conflict. Others fell to disease after the war had ended.
