HOMER J. NORTHCUTT is a son of B. J. and Roxy (Callahan) Northcutt, and
is one of a family of eight children, four boys and four girls, all of
whom are living but one boy, who died when an infant. He was born near
Dry Ridge, Ky., November 16, 1872, and reared on a farm until the age
of sixteen, when he began to work at the carpenter's trade. Two years
later, when he had thoroughly learned the trade, he began as a contractor,
and now, at the age of 28, is one of the largest contractors in the
northern part of the state. He is also an architect, and furnishes plans
to his customers on application. Many of the handsome buildings with
which this issue of the Courier is illustrated are modeled and built by
him. Among them being the Baptist Church at Dry Ridge and the Methodist
and Christian Churches in the same town. He also built the fine residence
of A. C. Franks. He was educated in the common schools. He was married
May 7, 1896, to Miss Della Hendrix, of Gallatin county. In politics he is
a Democrat. He is a member of the Improved Order of Red Men, Oswego Tribe,
No. 37, Dry Ridge, Ky., and served six months as Sachem, the highest office
in the lodge, his term ending March 1, 1901. His father is still living,
at the ripe of age of 83.
