I am looking for MOSES H. HUTTON, born in Virgina in 1817. His wife's name was MARY and she was also born in Virginia. His parents were born in Virgina, THOMAS C. HUTTON MARY HILL.

My mother was Anna Mae Hutton Heck, whose father was Thomas James Hutton of Dayton, Ohio. I believe
you are my mother's sister. I found a reference to Capt. Mosees Hutton while searching the DAR website.
The entry reads "Jacob Fisher: enl. 1778 Hardy Co. Va F-S15120 R980, Capt. Moses Hutton Vol 1781 under
Capt. Daniel Richardson in Co. of Light Horse." I have been searching for Judy Hutton, who is my aunt, for some
time. If you are she, I would love to hear from you. Sharon Heck Saylor

Dear Sharon,

Yes, I am your Aunt Judy. I have done a lot of research on the Hutton family and will be happy to send it all to you. Some of it is very interesting.

I see your mother's brother Ed quite often. In fact we are going to visit him in April. We e-mail almost daily. I have been trying to find out information about you mom from him, but he has forgotten most of the things I am interested in.

Regarding Capt. Moses Hutton, I'm not clear if he is in our line. I have a Thomas C. Hutton married to Mary Hill in Va. that is prior to 1813. I have documentation for that far back. Thomas' son Moses H. Hutton was born in Va. in 1813. Thomas and his wife Mary were born in Va. which would take them back to late 1700s.

Your mother's mother Marie Hardesty was a DAR member, so you have a revolutionary war veteran in your direct line. I may have more information on that next week.

I also have some early pictures of your mother and her mother that I will be happy to copy and send to your also.

Write back,

Hello Judy!

I'm so happy to hear from you. I didn't realize the Marie Hardesty was a DAR member. I am also in direct
I am also in direct line for the DAR on my father's side. Frederick Woolf, who came over with LaFayette to
fight. Thank you so much for filling me in on that.

I, too, have a picture of you when you were about two years old in front of an old car, and I believe I have
your father's old camera, which, if you want, I can send to you.

I have information also on Lt. John H. Hutton, who served in the Civil War under then Col. Philip H. Sheridan, Second
Michigan Cavary. I have a copy of the battle report that Sheridan filed. John H. was given Honorable Mention, and I
believe Uncle Eddie has the original commendation. I did belong to the Palm Beach County Geneology Society, and they
had a copy of the index of the "The War of the Rebellion" which is an official record of Union and Confederate Armies,
compiled by Brig. Gen. Fred Ainsworth. The actual volumes are at Florida Atlantic University where I work, and I was
able to get a copy of the battle report there.

I didn't realize the Uncle Ed was still alive. Please give him my regards. Any information you want about my mother,
just let me know. I have some old picture of Grandma and Grandpa Hutton
which I have enlarged and copied. You may be interested in having copies.
I got them when my brother, Jimmy, died. Jimmy died in September, 1998.

Claudia is now living in Sacramento, CA, Teresa is in Mississippi, and I believe
Michael is dead, but no proof.

Also, I got copies of Grandpa and Grandma's death certificates, and Grandpa Hutton's
parents were John Hutton and Margaret Odem. Grandpa was born in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Grandma's parents are harder to find. Grandpa Brown was a Confederate, and according
to her death certificate, her mother's name was Barbara Kirtz, place of birther, just "Indiana."
I know they lived on a farm there. But, as I understand it, Grandma Hutton told me that when
he returned from the Civil War, his wife had died, and he apparently used to sit out on the porch
and see visions of her coming down the hill from the family cemetery, so he moved north to Indiana.
Not sure if he lived in Georgia (which Grandma said), or Alabama, which apparently Grandpa Tom told
my mother. Mother has it recorded in the Bible that Grandpa Hutton gave her in 1947 that Grandma
Hutton's mother's name was Anna Belle Brown. May she's the one that died, and Barbara Kirtz was the
second marriage.

I'm just now getting back to my research, as I just graduated from Barry University in Miami. I didn't
have time to spend until now.

My home address is 8383 Bonita Isle Drive, Lake Worth, FL 33467, (561)433-5866, and my e-mail address at
FAU is, and at home

I know this is long, but I had so much to say. I'll send you copies of what I have also.

So good to hear from you.

Love, Shari (I've been called Shari for years!)

Dear Judy,
I have a Moses Hutton who lived in Washington Co, Virginia from 1784 to 1849. He was married twice, first unknown, second Nancy Zink. He had 16 children! Also I have a Thomas Hutton who lived in Washington Co, Va in the earliest records. This is not the same family that was in the Va area that is now West Virginia. I think that is a different branch.
I have very good ancestry and descendency, but the father of Moses Hutton is still a mystery to us. My email address is Please contact me if you think we can help each other. Diane
