I wish to find someone who is researching the Hutzler/Hutsler/Hutslar family that was in Frederick County Virginia in 1800-1810. One was named Jacob and he moved to Jay County Indiana. I believe that one was also James, who moved to Orange Co. Indiana and another was Joseph, who moved to Harrison County Indiana. I should like to correspond with anyone researching these families.

Hi Jim,

I am happy to work with you on the Hutslars. I am descended from James H. Hutslar, and am sending you a report on him. He was in Orange County Indiana, as you will see, but gave his birthplace as Virginia. I am 98 per cent certain he was the James Hutslar who died in the Dayton Ohio Soldiers home in 1880, although his birthplace there was given as PA. Va would be easy to mistake for Pa. in old writing. I have suspected the Jacob Yutslar who was in Hardin County Kentucky in 1800 and in Harrison County Indiana in 1807 to be James' father and the Joseph who was in Harrison Co. (born abt 1802) as his brother. I am not sure if the Jacob Yutslar was the same one that went on to Jay County Indiana, or was his father, or indeed, not related at all. Here is my data.


I am in Clarksville Indiana. Where are you?

Jane Sarles


James H. Hutslar married Susan Nelson.[i] He was A wagonmaker. He was born on 10 January 1805 in VA.



He married Susannah E. Mayo, daughter of (--?--) Mayo and ? ?, on 17 May 1835 in Orange Co., IN; Married by Reverend Henley from Bluff Spring Church of Christ.



He appeared on the census of 1840 in Washington Co., IN.[ii] He appeared on the census of 1850 in Greenfield Twp., Orange Co., IN, 1850 Orange Co. IN Census, Greenfield Township, lists James as born in Virginia.[iii]



He was received by baptism on 24 February 1859 in Bluff Springs Church of Chirst, Valeene, Orange Co., IN.[iv] He sold his land in April of 1863 to John F. Hisslop.[v] He married Amanday F. Tovay on 24 June 1863 in Orange Co., IN.[vi] He was excommunicated from the Bluff Springs Church on 25 July 1863 in Bluff Springs Church of Chirst, Valeene, Orange Co., IN.[vii]



He died on 3 July 1880 in National Military Home, Dayton, OH, at age 75. The Probate Court record of deaths in Dayton Ohio, gives James Hutsler as widowed, place of birth Penna., Occupation - wagonmaker. The cause of death was said to be senile Diblity.

Jane,
Yes, I am a Hoosier also. Ft. Wayne, IN to be exact.
I am not sure where James and Jacob come it yet. Jacob Hutzler came from Penn according to the census records. He married Ellenor Davis in Fredrick Co., Va. in 1819 according to:
Some Virginia Marriages 1800 - 1825 Vols 5-10
Ge 975.5
M14so V:5-10
They then moved to Green Co., OH in the Xenia area where most of the children were born. He then settled in Jay Co., IN in 1839 where he lived the rest of his days.
I have seen much confusion about Jacob and Joseph Hutzler with the posted genealogies. That is why I mentioned Joseph Caspar Hutzler. There is probably several clans of Hutzlers out there (WV, OH-IN,and TX) and I don't know how they tie together if at all.
Jacob and his wife Ellenor (Nellie) Davis is seen for both lines on Rootsweb. I have seen the "Biographical and Historical Record of Jay and Blackford Counties, Indiana" pg 494 977.201 J33bi at the Allen Co, IN public library and the Hutzler family is mentioned with the mother being Ellen Davis. So that is my only source.

Jim,
Lucky you are to be so close to the Allen Co. Public Library.
One thing that makes me suspect that my James H. is a brother to the Jacob that married Nellie Davis is that James named his first son Jacob and his second, Joseph. The other Joseph in Harrison County, is also the right age to be a brother to both guys. I can't fit in the Jacob Yutzlar who was in Harrison Co. Could he be the same Jacob who later went to Jay County? Do you know when he arrived in Jay Co.?

Sorry to be so full of questions, but it is so close, and yet - no certainty. Aggravating.

Jane

Jacob Hutzler, farmer and stockraiser, Penn Township, is a native of Ohio, born in Greene County, March 6, 1828, a son of Jacob and Ellen (Davis) Hutzler, the former a native of Virginia, and of German parentage, and the latter of New Jersey, and of Welsh ancestry. They were married in Virginia, and were the parents of thirteen children, eleven of whom grew to maturity, and seven are still living. They were among the early settlers of Ohio, in which State the father followed farming and worked at the cooper's trade until September 1839, when he immigrated with his family to Indiana, and entered 200 acres of land from the Government in Greene Township, Jay County. He cleared and improved his land, and experienced all the hardships and privations incident to pioneer life, going to Newport, Richmond and Muncie to mill, and many other inconveniences. He followed farming the rest of his life, and died at the advanced age of eighty-five years. His widow survived him several years, and died at the age of ninety-one years. They were formerly members of the Methodist Episcopal church, but the time of their deaths were members of the United Brethren church. In politics he was formerly an old-line Whig, but later affiliated with the Republican party. Jacob Hutzler, the subject of this sketch, was the fourth son and eighth child of his parents, and was a lad of eleven years when brought by them to Jay County. Here he was reared amid pioneer scenes, his youth being spent in assisting his father clear their frontier farm. He was married June 12, 1851, to Miss Mary Thomas, who was born near Piqua, Ohio, a daughter of Elias and Amanda (Milner) Thomas, and of German and Welsh ancestry. Of the seven children born to this union, three are deceased--Amanda, who married Stephen Brown, of Montpelier, Indiana, and after her marriage moved to Lohrville, Iowa, where she died January 28, 1886; Margaret, who accompanied her sister to Iowa, and died there November 8, 1881, and one who died in infancy, unnamed. Those living are--Isaac Newton, of Penn Township, married Laura Thompson, of Greene Township; William Elsworth, of Jefferson County, Nebraska; Patience Louisa, wife of Mark Armitage, of Knox Township; and James Harvey. June 8, 1866, Mrs. Hutzler died, and June 30, 1867, Mr. Hutzler married Elizabeth Thomas, a sister of his first wife, and two children were born to this union--Mary A. and Alonzo G. After his marriage Mr. Hutzler settled on an unimproved tract of forty acres, which his father had previously entered from the Government, and here he began making a home out of the dense wilderness. He resided on that farm until 1867, when he sold out an dremoved to Penn Township, and settled on his present farm on section 21, where he had twenty acres of partially cleared land, and again began making a home out of the forest. He has now seventy acres of choice land cleared and under fine cultivation, and well improved, being underlaid with 800 rods of tile. During the late war he served in Company B, Eleventh Indiana Infantry, under General Thomas, enlisting in November, 1863. He participated in the battles of Columbia and Nashville, and many others, and received an honorable discharge ath the close of the war, September 20, 1865. In politics he affiliates with the Republican party.

Thanks, Jim, for the information on the Jay County Hutslars. The local Jacob Youtsler (also spelled Yulstar) was in Hardin Co. KY by 1800 and purchased land in Harrison County IN in 1807. In 1811 he was living "at his plantation" in Harrison Co.

This fellow may have been the father of my James H. (and also of the Joseph who was also in Harrison County (Harrison and Orange Counties are quite near each other). No proof. I still wonder if perhaps the father, Jacob of Hardin and Harrison Counties, came from Frederick Co. VA and was also the father of the Jay County Jacob. No way to know of course. I may try to check out deeds in Hardin Co. KY, to see if I can get a clue. I have seen the Green County Ohio Hutslars. They had a James, too, but he was not mine. Possibly the son of the Jay County Jacob, and possibly named after his brother, my James H. More conjecture.

Jacob and Nellie are buried at Center Cemetery in Jay County.There is another head stone there for Paul A Hutzler and I am trying to make the connection between him and Jacob and Nellie.

I have a Paul that is the great grandson of Jacob Hutzler through Joseph H. and then Francis M. Hutzler. Not quite sure that this is the same one. The dates on the tomb stone work however. Thank you for the great cemetery pics. - Jim
