Surnames: Hutchison, Melcher, Muir, Semple
I am looking for information on the family of Alexander Hutchison. He was born on 29 Oct 1861 in Ayrshire, Scotland to Alexander and Lillian Hutchison. He immigrated to the U.S. about 1881 and was a coal miner. He married Janet "Jessie" Semple (who sometimes went by the last name Muir) on 2 Jan 1889 at Streator, La Salle, Illinois.

They had two children in Illinois:
* Alexander born 16 Aug 1891
* James born 15 Aug 1893

The family returned to Scotland and lived at Stonehouse, Lanarkshire, Scotland, which was where wife Jessie was from. They had 5 more children:
* Maggie born 1895
* Lilly born 1898
* Joseph born 1901
* Jane "Janie" born 1903
* Ruth born 1905

They returned to the U.S. sometime before 1920. And lived in Adair County, Missouri.

I am looking for information on son, Joseph's wife, Ruth A, and for information about about Maggie's husband, somebody Melcher.
