Henry Hutchinson
(August 23, 1835 – May 11, 1913)

Lake City Graphic, Lake City, Iowa, Thurs., May 22, 1913, p.6
Henry Hutchinson, a respected pioneer of Calhoun Co., departed this life Sunday, May 11, 1913 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. T. W. McCrary near Custer, S. Dak. He was born in Cassopolis, Cass Co., Mich., Aug. 24, 1835; was united in marriage to Clara Gregg May 28, 1857 at Brownsville, Mich. And in 1858, in company with his father and brother Norman, came to Calhoun Co., making the trip with ox team. He first settled in Jackson Twp., but soon after the war moved to what is now the Hiler place north of town. He was prominent in county politics for many years. He was one of the first to engage in the merchantile business in Rockwell City, being associated with J. H. Gregg. From there he went to S. Dak., but remained there but a short time, returning to Lake City and engaging in business with M. Lumpkin and later with O. L. White. His faithful companion for over fifty years preceded him to the better land only nine months. To this union were born nine children, three of whom died in infancy. The six living children are Lydia Freeman, Lamberton, Minn.; Genia McCrary, Custer, S. Dak.; Olive White, Rockford, Ill.; Arthur S, Denver, Colo.; Besse Cochrane, St. Paul, Minn.; Bernice McCline, San Francisco, Cal. There are also thirteen grandchildren and four great grand children. Of his father’s family there remained only two sisters, Mrs. Russell of Des Moines and Mrs. Lumpkin of Denver. These with a host of friends mourn the loss of a noble man who has left the impress of his life on the county which has been his home for over fifty years. He united with the Baptist church in boyhood and was a faithful worker in all of its departments until the end. The remains were brought to this city on Wednesday, May 14th and taken to the home of his niece, Mrs. John Oxenford. Funeral services were conducted from the Baptist church Thursday morning by Rev. T. A. Searcy. Music was beautifully rendered by Mesdames Johnson and Colvig and Messrs. Arney and Shaw, with Mrs. Mighell at the organ. The bearers were Messrs. F. M. McCaulley, R. L. Koontz, J. W. Woodward, M. W. Madsen, R. P. DeHart and Geo. D. Corey. The remains were laid to rest in Cottonwood cemetery beside those of his wife. Relatives from out of town who attended the funeral were Mrs. Olive White of Rockford, Ill.; Arthur S. Hutchinson of Denver; Mrs. Besse Cochrance of St. Paul; Earl McCrary of Minneapolis and Mr. and Mrs. J. B. McCrary of Carroll.
