> Thanks for the census info. I do not have other records than family papers so the census is interesting. I have Abram's death earlier than you do. Do you know where the 1910 date came from? I see from your work that you have been at this for quite a while. How closely are you related to this part of your family, if you don't mind my asking? - N. Rose
> Marriage to Lucy 10/10/33
> Lucy died 7/6/49
> Marriage to Nancy 7/6/50
> Abram died 9/25/80

> Their birthdates are:

> Nelson, born May 11, 1835
> Eugene, born December 10, 1836
> Ann Eliza, born January 31, 1839
> Leland, born April 23, 1842

> There is no spelling in the family for Nancy Harper Huchins other than this one. I have this in her handwriting and that of her mother and daughters. I do not know where the source for Hutchinson is, but find that name on the rootsweb site for several entries. If you know, I'd be interested in that source.
