In the 1870 census have a John Hutchinson born 1870 in Brooklyn to Hugh Hutchinson and Elizabeth __ .I tried to follow him in the 1900 census (etc.) and found a John Hutchinson maried to a Sarah/Sadie. Do you think this John in 1870 is the same John as in 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930 census records?I don't want to just guess.
