Stutson, Nelson, a minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church, was born at Monson, Mass., Sept. 20, 1829, and was converted when about nineteen. He was educated at Wilbraham, graduated from college in 1858, and joined the New England Conference in 1859. In 1869 he spent three months in Europe to recruit his health, but it continued to decline until he died, April 16, 1871, at Springfield, Mass. Mr. Stutson was a man of many rare and valuable qualities. See Minutes of Annual Conferences, 1872, p. 48.
