In the HX of Hiram, Portage Co., Ohio, I find an Elisha HUTCHINSON by 1802.He came from NY along with Mason TOLDEN & Elijah MASON fromCTSupposedly they cleared land and then returned for their families. Elisha Hutchinson m/ 1796, a daughter of Mason Tolden. However, have no hint as to Elisha's beginnings.Was he also originally from CT?? My line is a Benjamin HUTCHINSON m/Nancy Smith in 1819 in Portage Co., OH. My brick wall is parents and siblings for Benjamin.Was he kin to the above Elisha or a different family??
In the 1820 census for Springfield, Portage Co., OH I find James listed as 20001020010 Benjamin 0001000100. Are James & Benjamin kin or just in the same town at the same time?? Any assistance appreciated Audrey
