Palatinate of the Rhine (14th - 18th C)
Jacob (1Isaac) Hutto of South Carolina
Jacob Hutto was born in 1736 in Orangeburg Co SC. Date of birth is calculated from the 1739 land grant which lists the then youngest son as age 2. Jacob grew up in the ethnic German community, attending St. Matthews, the local German language Church.
Before 6/1753, Jacob was married in Orangeburg Dist. SC to Margaret Tshudy b. c. 1737 in Orangeburg Co SC. Evidence of this marriage comes from the Giessendanner Record of First Communion, Whitsuntide 6/3/1753.
If Margaret Tshudy was a first wife as is believed, she died before 5/1759 when Jacob was married in Orangeburg Dist. SC to Margaret Diedricks ch. 9/14/1741 Orangeburg Dist. SC. Evidence for this marriage comes from the 1759 will for Margaret's grandfather, Johannes Diedricks, which states his "Beloved grand daughter Margaret now the wife of Jacob Hottow of Orangeburg."
During the Revolutionary War, there are two records where a Jacob Hutto served both sides: one in the South Carolina Militia and one in British units which were raised in the Colonies. Were these two different individuals or was this one person? Note, many individuals served on both sides during the conflict. Evidence for Jacob s/o Isaac as the Patriot comes from his age; as a grown forty-four year-old man would be less likely to serve in a regular unit but would be more likely to serve in the local militia. Additionally, Jacob s/o Isaac received a land grant in Orangeburg Co SC in 1788. Was this his war bounty land from the Federal Government?
Jacob and Margaret are enumerated in the 1790 Orangeburg Dist. SC Census. One adult male is also enumerated who could be son Jacob, Jr.
Jacob is found in the 1800 Orangeburg Co SC Census. However, the female found with him would have been born after 1775. Information from the censuses indicates that Margaret died before 1800, and possibly Jacob remarried. Jacob is believed to have died after 1800 in Orangeburg Co SC.
