Walter Hutchinson of Brooklyn, New York, b. 1894, m. Anna Kennedy
Posted by: Pauline Lynn (ID *****2152) Date: February 17, 2012 at 07:12:50
  of 3884

Dear Hutchinson family member,

I have a child and a man and am not sure whether or not they are the same person. Walter Hutchinson (b. about 1895) was the son of John Hutchinson and Sarah of Brooklyn. Then there is a Walter Hutchinson born 18 April 1894 of Brooklyn who married Anna Kennedy. Is this one and the same Walter Hutchinson? What do you think?

IT HAS NOT BEEN PROVEN THAT THE WALTER HUTCHINSON, SON OF JOHN HUTCHINSON AND SARAH OF BROOKLYN, WAS THE WALTER HUTCHINSON WHO MARRIED ANNA KENNEDY AND WERE OF BROOKLYN TOO.

In 1930 Walter Hutchinson was no longer living with his parents. There is a [married couple] Walter J., son-in-law, and Anna living with the Kennedy family. I assume Anna's maiden name was Kennedy.

REGISTRATION FOR DRAFT FOR WORLD WAR II
In April 1942 Walter J. of Brooklyn registered for the draft. Here is the information from his World War II draft card.

(ancestry.com, World War II draft registration, 1942.)

DEATH
The social security death index has:
Walter Hutchinson
born 18 April 1894
died May 1971; last residence Brooklyn, Kings County, New York
Walter's social security card was obtained before 1951.
(ancestry.com accessed February 2012.)

With the April birthdate, this was the same man who registered for the draft.

BURIAL
unknown
Where was he buried?

My interest in Walter Hutchinson is that he descends from the Harrison family. I am following descendants of James Harrison (b. 1730s) of County Monaghan, Ireland. If these connections are made correctly, Walter's great grandmother was Mary Harrison who married Alexander Hutchinson. Mary or "Mrs. Alexander Hutchinson" was the daughter of James Harrison. (Green-wood cemetery, Brooklyn.)

Thank you for your help with Walter Hutchinson.

Polly
