Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am a retired (10 years) college history teacher living in Union MO. I grew up in Kansas City the son of Irvin (Jerry) and Grace Campbell Melton and went to college at CMSU and MU. My wife Karen Hatcher Melton grew up in Union but her father and mother Raymond and Wanda Hutchins Hatcher were from Carthage MO.

Karen and I have one son John and six grandchildren living just a "spit and a slobber" away here in Franklin County.

I no longer drive due to advancing Parkinson's but stay active volunteering at our local hospital's free clinic as a Pharmacy Technician and at East Central College in the summer theater program where I help design and build sets for the musical productions. I keep up with our household grounds and have a small garden and pet rabbits. In cold weather and on rainy days I build paper building models and work on our family's rich genealogy.

RE: Eli and Permelia Hutchins

I finally got my computer up and running. Ok, I have Thad Hutchins' information but am curious which Gary Hutchins you corresponded with. There are two in the Joplin/Carthage area and if you corresponded with one of them, you will already have all of my information. Let me know and we can go from there.

Hutchins line

I would still like to exchange info with you on our common ancestry. Unfortunately I received severe damage to my home in the May 22nd tornado and am waiting for my new computer to arrive. I should have it up and running by the end of the month. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner.

RE: Eli and Permelia Hutchins

I am glad that my work here has helped some researchers out there. I could send you a digital copy of the picture if you would like. The original actually belongs to my grandmother, as they were her grandparents. Let me know if you would like me to do that for you.
