W. T. HUTCHERSON, farmer, P.O. Petersburg; son of Thomas and Catharine (Philips) Hutcherson; was born in Green Co., Ky., Apr. 6, 1828. He was left to battle with the hardships of the world, without parental care and advice, at an early age. Previous to their death, they had removed to Sangamon Co., Ill., where he spent a great part of his early life. When the Mexican war broke out, Mr. Hutcherson enlisted with the 4th Regiment, I.V.I., under Maj. L. Harris, and served to the close. Mr. H. is one deserving great credit; he began as a poor boy, with limited advantages, and today enjoys a good reputation, and is surrounded by a pleasant family, and owns a beautiful farm, known as Fairview Farm, consisting of 220 acres.
