I have a great, great, great grandmother named Susannah Hutchinson who is listed in the 1820 U.S. Census, Vigo County and the 1830 U.S. Census for Vermillion County Indiana. She has been transcribed by one person as Jeremiah Hutchinson in the 1820 Vigo Census. She is buried in the very old part of Helt's Cemetery. I have a picture of the stone with her name, year of birth and date of death. She was born 1780 in possibly Vermont and died April of 1830 in Helt's Prairie, Indiana. She is not only a true "Pioneer of Indiana", but the mother of one of the area's noted citizens, Volney Powers Hutchinson, who married Mary Jane Armstrong (Denehie). Volney had a sister named Viola who married Thomas Aldridge or Oldridge and moved to Conway Arkansas.
We have been looking for the name of Volney's father or Susannah's husband for a number of years. Volney was orphaned at 12 years of age and apprenticed out to become a carpenter. We are unable to locate a court record or any information concerning Volney's father.
Does anyone have information that may help us? We believe Susannah's maiden name was Powers. Viola was born 1811 in Vermont, Volney was born 20 April 1818 in Ohio.
