This William Hutchison, born ca 1715 and died before Nov. 10th, 1787, was the father of Joseph Hutchison (variously, Hutcherson, Hudson). Joseph Hutchison was born about 1756 in Loudoun County, Virginia; he died May 15, 1842, in Hudsonville, Breckinridge County, Kentucky. Joseph was 86 years of age at the time of his death. For proof of Joseph's paternity, see documents I shall mention herein, including Loudoun County Deed Book L, p. 169, deed dated 20 Jul 1776. In this deed, the land owner, John Augustine Washington of Westmoreland County, Virginia, leased 150 acres to farmer William Hutchison (Joseph Hutchison & Susannah Dodson). Susannah was Joseph's wife.

This William Hutchison's wife was NOT Jane Waugh. Her name was Sarah (maiden surname unknown). No other marriages of this William Hutchison of Loudoun County, Virginia, have been discovered. In a plea to the probate court of Loudoun County, Sarah, wife of William Hutchison (deceased), asked the court to appoint Joseph Hutchison the "rite of admst" on the estate of "my beloved husband Wm Hutchison. " Signed: Sarah Hutchison and Wm Chamblin (Chamblin was probably a witness and/or court clerk). [See: Miscellaneous Administration Papers, Loudoun County, Virginia, Oct. 10th 1787.]

Joseph Hutchison was appointed by the court as the administrator of the William Hutchison (deceased) estate. However, he appealed to the court to have others, whom he named, appointed as administrators of the estate in lieu of him. He indicated that his wife, Susannah Hutchison, was likely to expire which was making it difficult for him to comply with his duties as administrator of his father's estate. [See: Papers filed with JUDGMENTS, etc. Jan-Mar 1792, Loudoun County, Virginia, request dated Feb. 12th, 1792.]

The documents settling the William Hutchison estate were presented to the Loudoun County Court 21 Jan 1793, by Wm. Bronough and Ben. Grayson, administrators. The estate settlement was recorded Feb. 11, 1793. [See: Loudoun County, Virginia, Will Book D, p. 299; Estate of Wm. Hutchison.]

I noted that none of the buyers at the auction of the personal property of William Hutchison (deceased)were named Waugh.

There was at least one other William Hutchison in Loudoun County in this era. I have not performed any research respecting other William Hutchisons of Virginia of which there were several.

There was another William Hutchison in Loudoun County, Virginia, in the late 18th century. When searching at Ancestry for William Hutchison, see in "Stories and Publications," this book: James W. Head. HISTORY AND COMPREHENSIVE DESCRIPTION OF LOUDOUN COUNTY, VIRGINIA. Washington, D.C.: Park View Press, 1908, p. 135. The entry states that a William Hutchison was commissioned as an Ensign in June of 1781 and that he was a son of Benjamin Hutchison.

This was not William Hutchison, born 1715, as he was about 66 years of age in 1781 and too old to receive an officer's commission.

The book was also published at Provo, Utah, by The Generations Network, Inc., 2005.

Evan Price left a will dated 22 June 1754 in Westmoreland County, Virginia. (See: Fothergill's WILLS OF WESTMORELAND COUNTY, VIRGINIA 1654-1800.) He named his wife, Sarah, to receive land and other estate during widowhood; daughter Sarah Hutcheson was named; a son named John to receive land upon which William Hutcheson lives; son Evan the home plantation; two daughters, Mary and Grace Price and the two sons the residue of the estate.

I suspect but cannot yet definitively prove, that William Hutchison's (born 1715 and variously mentioned as: Hutchison, Hutcherson, Hutchinson, Hutcheson) wife, Sarah, may have been the daughter of Evan Price, mentioned above as "Sarah Hutcheson." This claim, however, is mere speculation at this juncture. At least, that is a line of research which I am now investigating since William Hutchison, born 1715, was known to have married a woman with the given name of Sarah.

Evan Price was deeded land in Loudoun in 1761, 280 acres of a tract he and John and Robert Popkins had purchased from Josiah Clapham. (Josiah Clapham was Joseph Hutchison's commanding officer during the Revolutionary War. I, Francis Keenan, retrieved these records from NARA.) At the same time, John Popkins was deeded 141 acres and Robert Popkins another 141 acres of the same tract.

Joseph Hutchison and John Popkins were witnesses on the will of Peter Romine written in 1787. This information was what had led me to speculate that Joseph Hutchison's (1756-1842) mother may have been a Romine.

Since Evan Price and William Hutchison appeared in Loudoun County about the same time and within a few years after the death of the Evan Price in Westmoreland County, VA, it may be that William and Sarah came from Westmoreland County. Joseph Hutchison, if born in 1756, was born before Loudoun was formed from Fairfax County in 1757. If William Hutchison, father of Joseph, came from Westmoreland County, he may have been the son of Andrew Hutchison who came to Fairfax County in the mid 1740's.

Several family trees (which are unsourced and not documented thereby not reliable sources)at report that Peter Romine's daughter, Sarah (born abt. 1756), married a man with the surname ... WEST. If this information is credible, it was likely that this Sarah was NOT the wife of William Hutchison (born 1715)as he was much older than this Sarah and because there are reports that this Sarah Romine had married another. For proof that Peter Romine had a daughter named Sarah, see:

King George II of England. Later named Leesburg because the signer of the
Declaration of Independence and several members of the Lee family lived nearby.

BIO: Joseph Hutchison- Hudson (name changed to Hudson). The man who founded
the town of Hudson, Kentucky was born to William and Sarah Hutchison in 1754
in Loudoun County, Virginia. He was married to Susannah Dodson in Loudoun
County, Virginia and had two little daughters by her. He was the Sheriff of
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
of Virginia. One was for 620 acres on Simpson Creek in Nelson County,
Kentucky , and another 560 acres on Jack Creek in Nelson County, Kentucky.
This record can be found in the Kentucky Historical Society, Vol 12, Surveys
2925 and 2926.
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.

The first born to Hanna and Joseph was Deborah. The information you have posted was known to me and published in my book, Joshua Shelby: Ancestors and Descendants. See my message dated 29 Nov. 2002 on the Shelby surname message board at, msg title ... Proof of Paternity.

Are you related to the Hoskinson lineage or to the Hutchisons?

Thank you for the prompt reply to my question. I have been in contact with a lady from Arizona who also descends from the Hoskinsons in Breckinridge County, Kentucky. She is engaged in research concerning this Hoskinson lineage. If you wish, I shall be happy to forward her postal address. She only uses the computer at the library. She has connected the Hudson/Hoskinson to more Hoskinsons in neighboring Hardin County, Kentucky.
