Southern school (early 19th century) ELIZABETH CUTTINO SMITH, circa 1825
oil on canvas, framed, unsigned
H30" W25"

Provenance: Elizabeth Cuttino (1773-1827) was the daughter of William Cuttino (b. 1747) and his wife, Mary Elizabeth Coon (b. abt. 1753), both of Georgetown, South Carolina. William Cuttino, who was a member of the Winyah Indigo Society, was the grandson of the French Huguenot, Pierre Cothonneau (d.1746), who immigrated to South Carolina with his father Jeremie in 1687. Pierre was naturalized in 1696-1697. William was the treasurer and "builder" of the Antipedo Baptist Church of Georgetown, which was constituted in 1794 and built by 1804. According to family history, two of William's homes still stand in Georgetown, with one at 417 and the other at 421 Prince Street.

Elizabeth married Major George Savage Smith (1765-1817), who was generally known as Savage Smith, in Georgetown in May of 1795. Savage was the son of the merchant George Smith (1722-1786) and his wife, Elizabeth Waring (1732-1792), both of Berkeley County, South Carolina. Savage Smith served as president of the Antipedo Baptist Church in 1805; the Smiths and Cuttinos are buried at the Old Baptist Cemetery in Georgetown.
