Son and the 13th child of Jesse Hutchinson / Mary Hastings Leavitt.

Brothers John, Asa, and Judson Hutchinson are credited with founding the town of Hutchinson, McLeod Co., MN along the South Fork of the Crow River in November 1855.

John was determined to visit Washington, and, if possible, make arrangements for a series of concerts to our brave soldiers on the Potomac. In order to visit the camp, it was necessary that he should obtain permission from head quarters; and he therefore paid a visit to the Hon. Salmon Portland Chase, the able Secretary of the Treasury, who warmly welcomed him and expressed his readiness to do all in his power to forward his views.

War Department 14 Jan 1863
