Insert from biography online;
Andrew Jackson served as the 7th President of the United States, from 1829-1837. Along with Rachael, he served as guardian of several wards or orphaned children. Not all resided at The Hermitage. Andrew Jackson Hutchings (1812-1841) was the grandson of one of Rachel's sisters and the son of a former business partner of Jackson's. His parents died by the time he was five. In 1817, Hutchings lived at The Hermitage. He attended school with Andrew Junior and Lyncoya, a native American orphan, and then attended colleges in Washington and Virginia while Jackson was president. In 1833, he married Mary Coffee, a daughter of Jackson's friend John Coffee and the young couple moved to Alabama.
Rachel Jackson's sister is Katherine who married Thomas Hutchings of Pittsylvania Co VA, son of Christopher.Another reference from history I have read indicates Katherine remarried after Thomas died and had the twins late in life and could not nurse them both. Hence the child given to Pres. Jackson.Also John Hutchings was well known to have been Pres. Jackson's business partner until his death Madison AL.Pres. Jackson is from the Wax Haws as are the Hutchinson/ings/ins/ens.Also in history and I am sorry to say I didn't note the book that Pres. Jackson's Mother remarried her brother in law Lasley(many spellings)after the death of her sister.
Young women in those days didn't stay single for long and often married relatives of the deceased husband.
Pres. Lincoln's grandfather General Abraham Lincoln came from the Wax Haws.
