Ellen Hutchison married Pittsburgh lawyer Edwin M Stanton.The Hutchisons were said to be descendents of Meriwether Lewis or so says Benjamin P Thomas who wrote the book STANTON The Life and Times of Lincolns Secretary of War.
I have been working on this for years and the Pittsburgh Hutchisons might be connected to Lt Col Leven Powell of Middleburg VA in Loudoun County.
The reason I say this is a Jacob Myers was said to be the largest landowner in Kentucky and Lt Col Leven Powell was the second largest landowner in Kentucky. Historians are very firm that these to families were completly unaware of each other.Well, I have traced the Myers Iron Works in Kentucky to the Breckinridge family of Senator John Cabell Breckinridge and his grandson Vice President John Cabell Breckinridge who I understand ran against Abraham Lincoln.
I am looing for any Hutchison families in Loudoun County VA.
