Birth: Mar. 28, 1699
Death: Jan. 4, 1801

"On the Isaac Goldy farm, near Milford, about two miles and a quarter from Hightstown, there is an ancient burial-ground, wherein several of the old owners of the soil of East Windsor and members of their families found the last resting-place for their earthly remains. The following is from the tombstone of Ann Hutchinson, who was buried there: Sacred to the memory of Ann Hutchinson, Relect of Wm. Hutch'nson, Esqr., departed this life Jan'y 4th, 1801. Aged 101 years, 9 months, and seven days. She was mother of 13 children, and Grand Mother and great grand mother & great great Grand Mother of 375 Persons."
~ "History of Burlington & Mercer Counties, New Jersey", by Major E. M. Woodward & John F. Hageman, publ. 1888, pg. 765, East Windsor Township
Pg 758:
The children of William and Ann Hutchinson numbered thirteen and the latter was grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother to three hundred and seventy-five persons. five of their children were sons and eight were daughters. From the latter have sprung number families bearing the names of Tindall, in the neighborhood of Hamilton Square; English and Laird, about Englishtown; Ely, Wilson, Moore, Taylor, and others, in the vicinity of Hightstown; and Kinnan, Bennett and others, of New Brunswick. The marriages into families of these names took place about a hundred years ago. With later generations came the names of Cubberly, Dey, Moore, Taylor, James, Hartman, and others, and now, besides hundreds of Hutchinsons in the vicinity, the descendants of William and Ann Hutchinson may be found in almost every family in the section. Although only a little more than one hundred and eighty-three years have elapsed since the birth of Ann Hutchinson, her descendants are numbers by thousands. Among these long well known as residents on the old Hutchinson tract may be mentioned William R. Hutchinson, Daniel P. Hutchinson, and the late ex-State Treasurer Rescarrick M. Smith.
A (second) tract near Etra was sold to William Hutchinson. Hutchinson's wife, Ann, born in 1699, died in 1801, having lived to be 101 years old. She left 375 descendants. Her son, Joseph, started the Methodist movement in the area. Mrs. Hutchinson's gravestone, a lonely one in a large field, can be seen in Etra today.

. . . There were three brothers in the itinerant ministry, Sylvester, Robert, and Aaron. An old preacher whom time has shaken by the hand, who was well acquainted with the Hutchinson family, says they were born in Burlington County, New Jersey. There was a very large family of them. Their grandmother lived to a good old age. On her tombstone is the following inscription:
In Memory of
Mrs. Ann Hutchinson
Relict of William Hutchinson,
Mother of thirteen children,
Grandmother and Great-great-grandmother of upward of three
hundred children.
She died,
Aged a hundred and one years, nine months, and seven days,
in January, 1801.

Since the Rev. Noble W. Thomas gave me this description I find that Bishop Asbury names this extraordinary woman, and the epitaph upon her tombstone. The bishop says that at "about eighty, she, in a great degree, lost her sight; about ninety it returned. Her hair changed a few years ago from white to dark brown. I have seen her and conversed with her. At this advanced age she did not appear to be weary of the world."-Journal, vol.iii, p. 66.

What a remarkable woman! Sounds like she did indeed have a "long life and a merry one"! My husband is one of her descendants. She is truly an important part of the history of New Jersey.
