A sailor and native of the whaling island of Nantucket, ‘Capt. Thomas G. Macy came west following the Civil War. He was elected the pioneer Coroner of Weld County in 1884 and our records indicate that he conducted his first funeral service on April 6, 1886. Frederic J. Allnutt, born in England, came to Colorado as a young man. Desiring a college education he enrolled at the Normal School now the University of Northern Colorado. Frederic boarded at the Macy home and helped Capt. Macy in the undertaking business. Frederic married Capt. Macy’s daughter Anna and joined his father-in-law at Macy’s Undertaking Company in 1900. Anna and Fred’s son, John, joined his father and grandfather in the business in the 1920’s and son, Lloyd, in the 30’s. Jack and Bill Allnutt joined their father, John, in the 1950’s, becoming a fourth generation funeral service firm.
