#52ancestors Week 22 “So Far Away”

This weeks topic is “So Far Away”

Something to listen to while you read.

In 2011 my son and I began our European vacation. We left Dallas/Fort Worth Airport at 4:05 PM Friday August 5th and arrived at London Heathrow Airport at 9:00 AM Saturday August 6th. Roughly 10 hours between our door and London.

Not to far away in 1613 Francis Hutchins was born in Cornwall England. Francis arrived in Virginia in 1654. It probably took him 50-60 days to travel to Nansemond, Virginia.

Francis’s son Richard Hutchins (1658-1429) was born and died in Lower, New Kent, Virginia.

Richard’s son Francis Hutchins (1682-1774 ) was born and died in Lower, New Kent, Virginia

Francis’s son Francis Hutchins (1710-1750) Francis was a popular name at the time, was born in West Branch, Isle of Wight, Virginia and died in North Carolina.

Francis’s son Lewis Hutchins (1936-1805) was born in Albemarle Parish, Surry, Virginia and died in Montgomery, Georgia.

Lewis’s son Zachariah Hutchins Sr. (1774-1843) I have not been able to verify where Zachariah Sr. was born, it was probably in North Carolina. He died in Paragould, Arkansas.

Zachariah’s son Zachariah Hutchins Jr. (1815-1865) was born in Paragould, Greene, Arkansas. I have not been able to find where Zachariah Jr. died. It would be somewhere between Jack and Fannin County, Texas.

Zachariah’s son Lewis Hutchins (1638-1917) was born in Arkansas and died in Savoy, Texas.

Lewis’s son Johnny Calvin Hutchins (1882-1956) was born in Fannin County, Texas and died in Whitewright, Texas.

Johnny’s son Elijah Larue Hutchins Sr. (1907-1973) was born in Savoy, Texas and died in Grand Prairie, Texas.

 Elijah’s son Elijah Larue Hutchins Jr. (1930-1985) was born in Savoy, Texas and died in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Finally I was born in Berlin Germany in 1961 and made it to Grand Prairie in 1963. What took 309 years I was able to backtrack in 10 hours.

What no pictures! 😮
