After this information was gathered for private satisfaction McNutt & Musgrave Bros. decided to furnish their friends and customers this account of the fathers and mothers of our township by having it arranged so it can be preserved for future reference by you and your children and grand children. We also remember that these aged people were friends, neighbors and customers of J. M. McNutt, J. R. Hurst, Wm. P. Musgrave, and Nathan Musgrave, who were our fathers and grandfathers. We believe this record will be appreciated and trust it will be preserved for the longer it is kept, the more interesting it will be.

A Bit of History of the Members of the Firm of McNutt & Musgrave Brothers

Jesse Musgrave was the great-grandfather of all the members of the firm of McNutt & Musgrave Bros. He was the son of James and Hannah Musgrave, and he (Jesse) died in 1808 on the Nuce River in Wayne County, North Carolina. His descendants have been associated together in a business way almost ever since Hutsonville was laid out. The first general store of any importance in Hutsonville was built on the river front just east of the present hardware store. This was a two-story building, with a large pork packing house in connection, and was conducted by Nathan Musgrave, Wm. Cox and Wm. Hurst, the latter being a brother of the late John R. Hurst, and they were nephews of Nathan Musgrave. This firm did an extensive business for the day and continued from about 1837 to 1850. About 1854 W. P. Musgrave, son of Nathan Musgrave, formed a partnership with the late Dr. Meserve of Robinson. Meserve & Musgrave sold drugs in a small building that stood near where the Farmers & Merchants bank now stands. After a short duration this firm dissolved and in 1861 W. P. Musgrave and Wm. Coffin, a brother-in-law, formed a partnership and started a general store on the ground where the present Hurst Bros. store now stands. After one year Coffin withdrew and Dr. Thomas Kennedy, also a brother-in-law of W. P. Musgrave, became a partner. After a short time Kennedy withdrew and in 1864 W. P. Musgrave and John R. Hurst formed a partnership. Musgrave & Hurst continued the business about one year when Isaac Lowe, father of Judge A. L. Lowe, bought Musgrave out. J. R. Hurst continued in business until his death in 1886. In 1885 J. M. McNutt, the son-in-law of J. R. Hurst, bought the stock and building of J. J. Golden where the present firm of McNutt & Musgrave Bros. now does business. In 1897 N. A. Musgrave became a partner of J. M. McNutt and the firm of McNutt & Musgrave did business until Mr. McNutt's death in 1900, when B. O. McNutt, his son, took charge of the McNutt interest, and the firm continued until 1094 when Mahlon Musgrave became a partner, and since that time McNutt & Musgrave Bros. have continued the business.
