Narrative written by Vic Brauchi :
“Memphis, Tennessee was hit with a fever epidemic and was to be quarantined. A.J. Hutchison and daughters Minnie and Cora went to stay with his sister and her husband, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin R. Gill, who we believe lived in Horn Lake, Mississippi. This was in 1879. While there, Mrs. Hutchison died, on Dec 18. A little over a year later, on February 3, 1881, A.J. Hutchison died, leaving Minnie and Cora orphans. Minnie was eight years old and Cora was five. The girls went to live with their aunt and uncle, Mr. and Mrs. Edwin R. Gill at Horn Lake Mississippi.”
