Hutto in Colquitt Co., GA

One of the ALGER families I am researching in Colquitt Co., GA is Wilson Alger, b. 1832. He married a Mary (last name unknown) in 1857 BUT they had a son named Joseph HUTTO Alger, born abt. 1859. They show up on the Colquitt Co., GA census for 1860; Wilson age 26, wife Mary age 25 and son Joseph Hutto age 6 months.

Wison Alger, along with his six brothers, all fought for the Confederacy. Six of the seven died in the war, including Wilson, who died Sept. 1, 1863.

I have been trying to find what became of his young widow and child. I believe it is likely that HUTTO is a family name on his wife's side. It is an unusual name to give their son as a middle name unless it is a family name. Perhaps it is Mary's maiden name. Does any of this sound familiar to you?
