A few photos from the Hutchinson side. Benjamin Hutchinson was born in Columbia Co., NY and apparently moved to Erie Co. in that state before 1832. He is said to have died in 1857 although where he was residing at that time is a mystery. A number of his descendants ended up in Adams Co., Wisconsin and I have seen speculation that Benjamin relocated with them in the 1850’s although proof is lacking.
Benjamin and wife Laura (Ticknor) had a grandson, Moses Gardner Hutchinson (son of Lenardo Hutchinson), who appears to have used his middle name more than his first name although he does appear as Moses G. in one census. Moses Gardner Hutchinson was born in 1850 and died in Adams Co., WI in 1924. A photograph of him is identified on the back as Gardner Hutchinson.
The family photo collection has photograph identified as “Bert” Hutchinson. This Bert would appear to be a son of Almond Hutchinson. Almond was another of the children of Benjamin and Laura, a brother of Lenardo and uncle to Gardner. Almond resided in Adams Co., WI, then in Mauston, Juneau Co., although his death occurred in South Dakota. Almond Hutchinson’s family in 1870 included a “Burtis” Hutchinson, age one year, and in 1880, in an appallingly bad census enumeration, what appears to be “Birtin” Hutchinson. Presumably, this is the Bert Hutchinson in the next photograph, who would have been a grandson of Benjamin and Laura.
Next we have brother and sister Howard and Millie Hutchinson, children of Moses Gardner Hutchinson. They were great-grandchildren of Benjamin and Laura. Millie married my great-grand-uncle, Jasper Oakes, and died when she was not yet thirty.
