Keziah HUTCHINSON born 1807 married William Dickinson SIMS in Monroe Co OH in 1825. They moved to Auburn Twp, Richland Co (now Crawford Co) OH before 1830. Who were Keziah's parents? A possibility is James HUTCHISON who owned the property adjoining William and Keziah (HUTCHINSON) SIMS in Auburn Twp. James was listed as 60-69 in the 1830 Census and 70-79 in the 1840 Census. Keziah's much younger sister, Rebecca HUTCHINSON, born 1824, married James MALONEY in 1846 in Crawford Co OH. Other potential siblings include: Sarah HUTCHINSON (1810-1851) married Enoch BAKER. Charles HUTCHESON (born about 1818) married Nancy King in 1849 in Crawford Co OH. Susanna HUTCHINSON (1818-1871). According to the 1850 and 1860 Censuses, Susanna was an idiot. She was living with Charles and Nancy (KING) HUTCHESON in 1850 and with James and Rebecca (HUTCHINSON) MALONEY in 1860.
