Col. Sam Hutchinson, long time resident of this community, (Monmouth), died at his residence on North Third Street on Thursday 18 February 1886, aged seventy years, after an extended illness from heart trouble. He was buried at Kirkwood the following Saturday, the exercises being conducted by Dr. W.T. Campbell, assisted by Dr. T.H. Hanna.
Colonel Hutchison was born in Paterson, NJ, 28 June 1816, the son of James C. Hutchinson, who came with his family from Harrison county, Ohio and landed at Oquawka, more familiarly known at that time as "Yellow Banks", on the second day of June 1833 and located on lands in the east part of Henderson county, then a part of Warren.
In 1842, Col. Hutchinson was united in marriage with Miss Martha A. Graham, daughter of William Graham who had come from Todd county, KY and settled in Henderson county in 1835. To Col. and Mrs. Hutchinson were born six children, five of whom were living at the time of his death, - Mrs. William Firoved, Mrs. Isaac Woods, Mrs. William McCoy, Mrs. J.C. Wallace and William G. Hutchinson, the only son who lived on the old home farm.
Col. Hutchinson settled on and cultivated a farm northwest of Kirkwood until 1879, when he moved to Monmouth. He was for several years president of the Henderson county agricultural society and also helped organize the Old Settlers' Association of Warren and Henderson counties, having been elected to his second term the fall previous to his death.
He was a member of the Second United Presbyterian church of this city.

HISTORY OF MERCER AND HENDERSON COUNTIES pub. H.H. Hill, 1832
Samuel, the second son of James Hutchinson, was born June 28, 1811 (*should be 1816} and began life as stated in story of James Hutchinson. In 1842 he was united in marriage with Miss Martha A. Graham, a native of Todd county, Kentucky, and the eldest daughter of William M. Graham, Esq., who emigrated to Henderson county, Illinois in 1835; she was born September 23, 1823. Mr. Hutchinson since his advent into this county in 1833, spent his life up till the fall of 1879 on and near his first location in Sec. 1, T 10, R 4p and Sec. 36, T 11, R 4, actively engaged in farming and stock raising, and so well did he succeed that on retiring from the farm he was able to wisely apportion off to his family and set apart to his own use about 600 acres of good land. During his residence in this county Mr. Hutchinson took active part in its business affairs. His great circular wolf hunt organized and carried out was the means of ridding the county and its early settlers of a number of those audacious and sneaky posts. On that occasion many more scalps might have been taken but for the excitement created over the twenty or thirty deer which were also surrounded. Mr. Hutchinson affirms that he brought into this county the first combined reaper and mower that did successful work (though the writer was informed that Seth Oaks was the first to introduce that kind of a machine into this township if not in the county). In 1879 Mr. Hutchinson moved to his pleasant home in Monmouth, especially to secure needed rest for his wife. His children are; Ellen (deceased) in her lifetime the wife of Mr. John H. McDougall; Sarah, now Mrs. William Firoved; Elizabeth J., wife of Issac Woods; Samantha S., now Mrs. William McCoy; Mary A., wife of John C. Wallace, and William G., his only son now on the old home. Mr. and Mrs. Hutchinson and family are members of the United Presbyterian church, and he is a staunch member of the old democratic party. (page 1367)
