In Reply to: Andrew J. Hutchinson, Albany, NY m ____.Brooks by Jo Anne of 3884

Jo Anne,

So you are saying that Andrew Jackson Hutchinson not only married Marietta Brooks (which he did), but the also had a daughter named Marietta (b. 1865)?

What are the dates that he or his brother was a prisoner at Andersonville Prison? "Andrew Hutchinson" who was born in Washington County, New York, was mustered out on 10 September 1863. He had enlisted November 1862. (See source below.)

Andrew Hutchinson had an uncle, George Hutchinson, who served in the Civil War in the cavalry as a blacksmith. I have no other details on that military service.

Here below is what I have on your ancestor, Andrew Jackson Hutchinson.

compiled by Richard Belding Gilbert and father, Peg Kenaga, Polly Lynn, and Jo Anne

Richard Belding Gilbert or his father, Richard L. Gilbert, determined that Andrew Jackson Hutchinson was
the son of James Hutchinson and Frances Percy.

1840 U.S. federal census, seek a James Hutchinson in Washington County, New York

1850 Albany ward 8, Albany County, New York
James Huchison [sic] 37, Blacksmith, born New York
Fanny Huchison 36, born New York
Jhon Huchison 17, Moulder, born New York
Andrew Huchison 14, born New York
Robert Huchison 11, born New York
Hannah Huchison 8, born New York
Eliza Huchison 6, born New York
Matilda Huchison 4, born New York
James Huchison 2, born New York
(Polly Lynn looked this up in, U.S. federal census for 1850, 21 February 2013.)
Note this James Hutchinson in Albany was born about 1813 and was a blacksmith. Blacksmithing was the trade of two of the brothers of the James Hutchinson of Argyle. Both John Hutchinson and George Hutchinson of New York City were blacksmiths. (See under their biographies.)

1860 U.S. federal census for Albany ward 6, Albany, New York
Jas Hutchinson, 43, born New York
Fanny Hutcinson, 45, born New York

plus people with the surname Cain, Boyle, Miller[s], Hull, Barter, Williams, Kercy, Furman, and White[s].
(U.S. federal census, library edition, accessed by Polly on 21 February 2013.)

Peg Kenaga writes, "The 1860 census James and Fanny Hutchinson have a very large family, plus boarders. The family includes their married son John F and his wife Margaret and their son Samuel. Their son Andrew and wife Mary Etta (1st marriage for Andrew, no wife in 1870, and new wife Mary in 1875 and 1880 censuses). Their son Robert, and his wife Sarah and their son James. I have determined this by following the sons, their wives and their children. Looking at the 1870, 1875 and 1880 censuses, there are a few issues. Andrew is married, widowed and remarries. It looks like he has a stepson, and several children with second wife. In the meantime James and Fanny have children listed as theirs, but Fanny is probably too old to have one or two of them. The question becomes are they taking care of Andrew’s kids, or someone else’s." (Peg Kenaga, e-mail to Polly, 4 March 2013.)

Did Andrew Jackson Hutchinson marry twice? Relative Richard Belding Gilbert tells that he married first Marietta Brooks. I have found an obituary for the widow of Rev. Andrew J. Hutchinson, but this wife was Julia E. Brown. Was she his second wife?

Andrew served in the Civil war. New York Civil War Muster Roll Abstracts tell that Andrew Hutchinson 25 was born 1837 in "Washington Co." Andrew Hutchinson enlisted 21 November 1862, and mustered out 10 September 1863 at Albany. He served in Company B, New York 177th Infantry Regiment. (New York Civil War Muster Roll Abstracts, 1861-1900,, for Andrew Hutchinson 25, accessed 25 February 2013.) Jo Anne writes that he or a brother was an inmate at Andersonville Prison. (Jo Anne,, Hutchinson forum, message posted 22 September 2001, accessed 5 March 2013.)

The 1863 directory for Albany lists Andrew, his father, and other Hutchinsons.
Andrew Hutchinson, engineer, h. 154 Orange
James Hutchinson, blacksmith, 154 Orange
It appears that in 1863, Andrew and his father were living together.

Other Hutchinsons were Thomas and William and 154 Clinton Ae. David and DRW were grocers at 123 Bowers.

In 1865 Andrew J. Harrison and his wife had a daughter named Marietta Hutchinson. (Jo Anne,, Hutchinson forum, message posted 22 September 2001, accessed 5 March 2013.)

Marietta Hutchinson had Brights disease. (Albany Rural Cemetery, burial cards, library edition, accessed late February 2013.)

On Christmas 1868 Marietta Hutchinson died. She [was not] buried [until] 19 May 1869. Was she buried earlier and then reburied on 19 May 1869? The lot she was last buried in belonged to [her father] Sam Brooks. (Albany Rural Cemetery, burial cards, library edition, accessed late February 2013.)

1870 census
Andrew is listed with no wife.
(Peg Kenaga, e-mail, 4 March 2013.)
Find this record.

Peg Kenaga has found Andrew Hutchinson with his "new wife Mary in 1875 and 1880 censuses". (Peg Kenaga, e-mail, 4 March 2013.)

On 23 October 1883 at Albany Hall, son, Charles Brooks Hutchinson, married _____ O'Hagan. On the marriage record he gave his parents' names as Andrew J. Hutchinson and Marietta Brooks. (Joan Alexander, "Re: Andrew J. Hutchinson, Albany, NY m ___,Brooks," posted March __., Hutchinson forum, accessed 3 March 2013.)

See her obituary.

Was Andrew Jackson Hutchinson a Methodist minister? If so, it was he who performed his [great] niece's wedding.

"The wedding of Miss Caroline Vandermore, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George Vandermore of Second Street and Mr. Richard L. Gilbert, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Gilbert of Shelter Island, will take place this afternoon at the home of the bride. Miss Ruth Gilbert, a sister of the bridegroom will be bridesmaid, and Chester Vandermore, a brother of the bride will be best man. The Rev. Andrew Hutchinson of Akin, the bride's cousin, will perform the ceremony. (Richard Belding Gilbert, researcher. He quotes a newspaper clipping he owns, dated 10 June 1911. He posted the announcement on World Tree, Belding family tree, accessed February 2013.) According to the wedding announcement, Rev. Andrew Hutchinson was of Akin [New York].

Was the reverend Andrew Jackson Hutchinson? Yes, I think so because I found an obituary for a Mrs. Rev. Andrew J. Hutchinson. Does the J. stand for our Jackson? The husband of the deceased had been a Methodist minister. We know our Andrew Jackson Hutchinson died on 14 December 1911 (Richard Belding Gilbert). Did his wife outlive him by 31 years? The obituary for her was published on 2 January 1943 in the Times Record Troy N.Y.

He died in 1911. The 1912 city directory for Albany tells, "Hutchinson Andrew R died Dec 14 1911." (City Directory 1912 Albany,, accessed February 2013.)

Andrew J. Hutchinson was buried at Menands Cemetery, Albany Rural Cemetery.
(Polly, search through Find A Grave, accessed on 25 February 2013.)

Albany Rural Cemetery maintains burial cards. The pertinent card give the following information supplied by relatives:
"Andrew J. Hutchinson"
born in the "United States," died "Rensselaer, N Y"
d. 1433 Broadway, Rensselaer, NY
d. December 14--1911
date of interment: dec. 17, 1911
[cause of death] Arterio Sclerosis [age] 74y 8m 9d
In whose lot was he buried? Hutchinson & Haley, lot 647, lot 105 [?, one of these is a section number.]

Was this our Andrew's third wife?
"Deaths Obituary Funerals"
"Julia E. Brown Hutchinson."

"Julia E. Brown Hutchinson, widow of Rev. Andrew J. Hutchinson, died at the Hagamon Farm, Greenville, Thursday. [So she died Thursday, 31 December 1942.] Mrs. Hutchinson was the youngest daughter of the late William Henry and Eve Ann VanDecar Brown. She was born at Nassau on Nov. 6, 1855."

"Mrs. Hutchinson was one of the oldest alumnae of the New York State College for Teachers, having been graduated with the class of 1875. She taught for several years in schools for Rensselaer County and at Troy Conference Academy, now known as Green Mountain Junior College, at Poultney, Vt. After her marriage, she served with her husband at numerous charges of the Troy Methodist Conference, including Johnsonville, East Greenbush and Guilderland. Her published poems received much favorable comment. For several years she spent winters in Florida and for a period of six years, following the death of her husband, she made her home at New York with a nephew, Allen B. Flouton."

"Survivors are a brother, William A. Brown, [of] Rensselaer [Rensselaer County, New York], and a sister, Mrs. Rossa Gardner, Schodack Landing [probably New York]. There are also several nieces and nephews. The funeral will be held tomorrow afternoon [Sunday, 3 January 1943] at 3 p.m. from the Tebbutt Memorial Chapel, 176 State Street, Albany. Dr. W. Earle Ledden, pastor of Trinity Methodist Church, Albany, will officiate. Burial will be at the East Greenbush Cemetery." (The Times Record, Troy, New York. Saturday Evening, 2 January 1943.)
