MCNUTT, ELIZABETH (177?–?). Elizabeth McNutt, one of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred colonists, received title to one sitio of land in what is now Jackson County on July 21, 1824. The census of 1826 listed her as a widow, aged over fifty. She had two sons and five daughters and owned fifteen slaves. Noah Smithwick listed her as one of his patrons from Fort Bend County.
