HUTT ROLL CALL of HONOR
The number of Hutts, descended from Daniel Hutt, who served in protection of home and hearth is vast. Daniel's vast legacy can be seen in incredible detail at Greg Newton's web site. That information is borrowed here, some is summarized while others expanded upon. Assuredly, there are descendants of Daniel Hutt that have served the nation either missed or not fully noted here. Please send me any corrections or additions.
Gerrard Hutt, son of Daniel, was listed as a Captain of a troop of 75 men in Westmoreland County in 1698.
John Hutt, son of Gerrard III and great-great grandson of Daniel, served twice during the Revolutionary War. First, at age 15, in the infantry and again later on in the light infantry. After a protracted disagreement with the government, he was given a pension one month before his death. His gravemarker in Chillicothe was recently replaced by local chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution, which has been doing this for all servicemen in Chillicothe. John came to Ohio in 1801 and by 1803 was an active voice in Ohio's Constitutional Convention, advocating the stand that Ohio should remain a non-slave state upon statehood. An interesting perspective from the son and brother of slave owners and a former slave owner himself.
Gerrard Hutt, IV, brother of John, son of Gerrard III and great-great grandson of Daniel, also served Virginia during the Revolutionary War.
William Spence Hutt, brother to both Gerrard IV and John, son of Gerrard III and great-great grandson of Daniel, served the Ohio Militia as quartermaster in 1803. He was listed as part of the Ohio Militia as a private during the War of 1812 (listed as serving during the late summer of 1812). Having first been noted in Ohio in 1799 (as a juror in a trial), William served in various government positions ranging from Supervisor of Chillicothe (responsible for maintenance of "streets") to county tax collector. He shortly after moved to (West) Virginia and later to Arkansas.
Corbin Robinson Hutt, son of Gerrard IV and 3rd great grandson of Daniel, was the Captain of his Company in the Black Hawk War of 1832. The Regiment of Mounted Volunteers was called into service of the United States by the Governor of the State of Illinois for the protection of the Frontiers of the State in 1832. Captain Hutt and his company served in the campaign from May to June of 1832.
Steptoe Demerett Hutt, also son of Gerrard IV and 3rd great grandson of Daniel, was a Civil War soldier in the Conferate States Army, a member of Company C, 9th Virginia Regiment of Cavalry. He enlisted in 1861 in "Lee's Lighthorse" Company C from Westmoreland County. Steptoes son, and 4th great grandson of Daniel, Augustine Neal Hutt died June 16, 1862 in Winder Hospital, Richmond, from wounds received near Chickahominy.
Thomas William Hutt, grandson of Gerrard III and 4th great grandson of Daniel, was a major of the militia in Virginia.
John Daniel Madeira, grandson of John Hutt mentioned above, great grandson of Gerrard III and 4th great grandson of Daniel, was an officer with the 73rd Ohio Volunteer Infantry (OVI) which, among many battles, was present at the Battle of Gettysburg. John was commissioned as Captain, Company I of th 73rd OVI in October of 1861, was promoted to 1st Lieutenant, Company I in March of 1862, was detached from his unit a year later as Acting Assistant Inspector General, 2nd Brigade, 2nd Division, 11th Army Corps. He returned to his company a year later in march of 1864 and mustered out New Year's Eve, 1864 at the expiration of his term of service.
John Hutt Robinson, great grandson of Gerrard III and 4th great grandson of Daniel, was Captain of Co. C, 130th Regiment, Illinois Volunteers during the Civil War. Among the many battles, the 130th Regiment was present at the Battle of Vicksburg, Mississippi and spent much of the rest of the war in Louisiana and Texas.
Solomon Spence Robinson, brother of John Hutt Robinson, great grandson of Gerrard III and 4th great grandson of Daniel, also served during the Civil War. "Sol" was originally Captain of Company C, 22nd Ohio Volunteer Infantry (OVI). The 22nd originally formed in Missouri as the 13th Missouri Infantry, but was re-organized as the 22nd OVI. Interestingly, the original 22nd was formed as a 3-month unit in Chillicothe, Ohio, where John Hutt Robinson was born and raised. According to his sister, Fanny (Robinson) Swayne, Spence captured a rebel company and six cannon General Sherman saw him do it and he had him promoted to a major in the service..." The 22nd OVI spent the majority of its service in Mississippi and Arkansas, while General Sherman led the infamous "March to the Sea" through Georgia and the Carolinas. Further research will show whether Fanny's family story holds merit.
Littleton Tazewell Costin, the 5'10" tall, auburn-haired, blue-eyed grandson of Gerrard IV and 4th great grandson of Daniel, joined the 111th Regiment of the 14th Brigade (Westmoreland Co. Militia) in December 1861 and was elected 3rd Lieutenant in 1862. He transferred to Company A, 15th Battallion, Virginia Cavalry in 1862 then commanded Company A after September 1863. Paroled as Lieutenant, 5th Virginia Cavalry on April 9, 1865 at Appomattox Courthouse at the end of the Civil War.
Charles Warren Hutt, grandson of Gerrard IV and 4th great grandson of Daniel, enlisted in the Confederate service as a private in Company K of the 40th Infantry, Virginia Volunteers in 1861 and was captured on July 5, 1863, during retreat after the Battle of Gettysburg. While his cousin, John Daniel Madeira (who was a grandchild John Hutt, the brother of Gerrard IV) was across the battlfield at Gettysburg, it is unlikely they would have been in direct combat against one another based upon the troop locations of Charles and Johns units. It is unlikely they even knew each other, as Johns grandfather came to Ohio in 1803 with his parents moving to Missouri (close to Cairo, Illinois) in the mid 1800s. Charles grandfather, Gerrard IV, had remained in Virginia. On July 10, 1863, the captive Charles Hutt was transferred from the prison at Fort McHenry, Maryland, to Fort Delaware, Delaware, and then transferred from there to Point Lookout, Maryland, on October 26, 1863. Letters he wrote about the camp are part of a book about the camp. He was paroled in May of 1865.
