The story begin in America, in the year 1754. The Widow Mary Hutchison, with her two sons, William and James. James being born in 1743.In County Antrim,Ireland. His father was William and he died in Ireland. Before, they began their trip to America. They traveled with other Hutchison family members and Matthew and (Jane Brown)Kelly and their children. In a collection of brief notes on the history of our family, written by Rev. Joseph Hutchison, of Jeffersonville Indiana in 1892 it was recorded the following:
My great-grandfather Hutchison was born,lived and died in Ireland. Most likely in County Antrim. though my grandmother Hutchison talked to me about Londonderry, and I had the impression that both families lived near there. My father told me that the tradition of the family was that the family came from England into Ireland. It is also written that we were linen manufacters from Scottland. James was Rev. Joseph Hutchison grandfather.
The Ship Trip:
The families travel together, they evidently had a rather rough trip, since it took 16 weeks in crossing. They were reduced to the extremity of securing drinking water by catching rain in blankets.
When they came through the Deleware River they settled in a Irish settletment in New Chester Pa. After the war of 1776 some of the Hutchison and other family members traveled on to Ohio. It was there in Fredricksburg, that James Hutchison died and is buried, Jane lived for many years longer and is also buried , using the same headstone as her husband. Daniel became the first sheriff of Holmes county, you can read his story at his name. Does anyone have a picture of him. Please share it with me.
There is some discrepency in the record of the Kelly family. Accouring to William Hutchison, there were 3 sons and 2 daughters. William and Matthew were soldiers in the Revolutionary War.Daniel Kelly resided in PA. Jane that married our James Hutchison, and Nancy whom lived in Pittsburg and married Thomas Ge(i)lfellan.
We have eight brances from James and Jane. Their journey leads to a part of who we are today. Please take the time,read some of the history that I included on some of them If you have any stories you would like to share please send them to me and I will include them. I think it great when you have a personal story and not just a name. Let's share. I am now working on my other branches, so I will be adding information that I have received. When you visit this page, please let me know what you think. 2003 a family quilt was made with pictures of our elders. The 2004 family reunion was held in Centerville, Iowa. Where we went to all of the cemeteries and took pictures of headstones through out the area. The 2005 reunion was again held in Des Moines, Iowa. 2006 Family Reunion was held in the Des moines area Jean and Louis Grill held the 2007 reunion. In 2008 we will be celerbrating Nola Hutchison's 90 birthday and we will hold the reunion at the same time. At this time I believe it will be in Racine, WI.in August. We expect a big turn out. It really is nice seeing everyone.
The Spoon holder sets on my table today it sat on Daniel, Andrew and Amos table. I am one lucky person.
