One set of my ancestors is Jacob HUTCHINSON and Eliza CROSBY of 1800's Winchester, MA. Jacob is descended from George, arriving 1630 MA Bay Colony. (Eliza is descended from Simon CROSBY (son) 1600's Billerica, MA).) So, those 2 names are 2 of my main researchers. One of the mysteries I have is whether Eliza's ancestor, Simeon CROSBY, b~1760 MA, fought in the Rev. War. When I asked this on the Rev. War List, researchers several sites and some Google / Books I should look at. I saw the CROSBY name mentioned maybe 6 times and there was a Simon, but I don't know whether he was Simeon CROSBY.
What I've never done good research on is whether the HUTCHINSON men of Charlestown, Woburn, and Winchester, MA, fought in those early Wars. But, if I look at the sites recommened this past week, I'll probably find the HUTCHINSON name mentioned a half-dozen times.www.rootsweb.com

P.S. I just noticed I posted on this thread before; I'll go look to see what I said.
P.S.2 The related names to the above names are KIDDER and RICE, etc. There are KIDDER, RICE, CROSBY, and MOORE books, but I know of no HUTCHINSON book. Part of the problem is that there were about 6 HUTCHINSON patriarchs in the MA Bay Colony.
