Hi, I am trying to trace my husband's Hutchison line, and I can't get past William A Hutchison, who was born in 1844. A census record lists his birthplace as IL, but all other records tie him to TN. I can't find any info on siblings or parents, other than possible birthplaces for his parents. Census records list his father's birthplace as Paris or France, and his mother's as NC. His name is sometimes spelled "Hutcheson". His wife is Emmeline Tucker. They had several children, among them is Jacob Harvey Hutchison, who is my husband's GGGrandfather.
I'm really stumped on this. I know there are a lot of Williams and that certainly complicates the search. Also, the possible birthplace for his father is throwing me off. Any help or info that I can find would be much appreciated.
