Re: Stokes County, NC
Hello Patricia, Irecently found some Guilford County records online for aWm Hutchinson (spelled variously). I did not know which Wm this was, but didn't want to lose the records and since my tree is private, felt comfortable adding it without spreading possibly inaccurate information. This may not be our William, but here are the records....

From other peoples lines I have Jeremiah, Joseph, Anna, William "Buck", Andrew and Daniel as his children with wife Marah.There is a William of the correct time frame, who in later life was sued by wife Molly(could this be Marah) for divorce. The divorce mentions that she is supported in this claim by a son Daniel . Either Wm was not a nice man or had some dementia in later life and changed his personality. I found this in someone's writings on divorce in early NC by web search of books.
I know that William had more children than I list and I have seen that they are named in his estate. I haven't seen the estate and can't find it in a search on familysearch.org. Do you have the estate papers of William b abt 1752? I have never seen them, only references to them. I am descended through his son Jacob who moved to Wilkes County, NC.
