CUTHBERT, John A., jurist, born in Savannah, Georgia, 3 June 1788; died near Mobile, Ala., 22 September 1881. His father was a colonel in the Revolutionary army. He was graduated at Princeton in 1805, and ill 1809 became a law student in New York. In 1810 he was elected to the legislature of Georgia, from Liberty County, which he continued to represent for years. During the war of 1812 he commanded a volunteer company to protect the coast. In 1818 Georgia elected her representatives in congress on one general ticket, and Cuthbert was thus chosen. At that time the Missouri question occupied the attention of congress, and Judge Cuthbert took an active and zealous part in maintaining the southern side of it. In 1831 he became editor, and subsequently proprietor, of "The Federal Union," a paper published at Milledgeville, Georgia, and in 1837 removed to Mobile to practice his profession. In 1840 he was elected judge of the County court of Mobile, and in 1852 appointed judge of, the circuit court.
