Loudoun County, Virginia. He served in the American Revolution in 1777 in the
Virginia Militia and saw service under Capt. Alexander McNickin, Major George
WEST, Col. Josiah Clepham and General Dark. He was in action in the battles
at Brandywine and Germantown and then was discharged. He was drafted again in
1781 by Col. Francis Peyton but was excused from service by recruiting five
men to serve in his place. Throughout the years of 1780 and 1781 he collected
beef, wheat and clothing for the Army.
On March l, 1799, Joseph Hutchison received two Land Grants from the State

Kentucky , and another 560 acres on Jack Creek in Nelson County, Kentucky.

Joseph Hutchison's wife, Susannah, died in Virginia. He then came West
with his children to Bourbon County where he married Hannah Hall on May 21,
1798. She was 25 years of age and he was 44. He and Hannah raised a large
family whose names were; Esquire Hines, Sam Jefferson, Theopolis Hall,
Elizabeth, John, James, Nance and others. The spelling of the name was
changed to HUDSON after he moved into Breckenridge County. The Hudson Family
believed in the younger generation living with the older generation and caring
for their elders. Joseph's son, Esquire Hines Hudson and his wife, Ramma
lived in the house with Joseph and Hannah as did Esquire's son Joseph and his
wife Margaret HOSKINSON. My mother, Wilma Drane, remembered going to visit her
great grandfather, Joseph HUDSON, when she was a little girl. He died when
she was 10 years old. My Mother was related to him through her grandmother,
Margaret HUDSON McGuffine. I, the writer, am descended through Joseph's son,
Esquire Hines, through his son, Joseph, through his daughter, Margaret who
married Dr. Thomas McGuffin of Constantine, through their daughter, Pearl, who
married William Robert Drane, through their daughter, Wilma, who married my
father, Stephen Steimer of Pennsylvania. Written by Mrs. Theodore John
Kreatschman, nee Doris Jean Steimer, Grandaughter of William R. Drane.
