Dead Fred's Genealogy Photo Archive, a free, fun photo genealogy research web site devoted to helping you visualize your heritage!

Dear readers,

Please help us keep DeadFred alive. 90% of our expenses are supported by donations averaging $5. Not many visitors contribute. If each visitor reading this right now gave $2, our fundraiser would be done by the time you finish reading this. That's right, the price of a large can of soda would do it.

If DeadFred is helpful to you, please take a moment to help us. We are a very small group of volunteers serving thousands of readers daily with very little outside support. DeadFred is a place to share and discover the faces of your ancestors. The funds we receive go toward maintaining and improving your chances of discovery. Please help us so we can continue to help you.

Thank you,
Joe Bott

Comments: Thomas Nuttall (Nee: ) | United States | 1851-1900 | Comments: This portrait of Mr. Thomas Nuttall appears as frontispiece illustration to The Gardener's Monthly, vol.II, no.1, January, 1860. There is a biographical sketch of him on pages 21-23 of that volume. See that reference for more details. Mr. Thomas Nuttall was born at Settle, in Yorkshire, England in 1784. He received a rudimentary education and was apprenticed to a printer. Later, at the age of 22 he immigrated to the United States and began a business in Philadelphia, PA. He had a great interest in natural history and botany. From 1808 forward he increased his knowledge of botanical science greatly. He conducted many plant gathering expeditions into the American wilderness and also had a fondness for American Indians. In 1818 he published ''Genera of North American Plants.'' In 1822 he was appointed Professor of Natural History at Cambridge, Massachusetts. He published other works in botany and also in ornithology. In 1833 he returned to Philadelphia. In 1842 he returned to England on account of the death of his uncle, who had bequeathed him property. He retired to a small estate in Rainhill in England and devoted his time to horticulture and floriculture. He died at age 75. That is all the information I have on him.
