|There is no proof that Lydia Frances Hutto is descended from this Lewis family. Connections between the Lydia Lewis who married Jacob Hutto, Jr. and this Lewis family are based solely on conjecture and are included here to stimulate further research.|
Lydia (4James Simeon, 3James, 2William II, 1William) Lewis of South Carolina
There is no proof that Lydia's last name was Lewis. However, there are reports of land transactions in South Carolina connecting the Hutto and Lewis families. And, the Christian names Lydia, Simeon, Thomas, Alexander, and Galloway appear in the James Simeon Lewis family. The following is my current hypothesis:
Lydia Lewis was born in about 1785 in New Hanover Co NC. In about 1800 probably in South Carolina, Lydia married Jacob Hutto b. 1773 Orangeburg Co SC.
The Lydia who married Jacob Hutto immigrated between 1816 and 1819 with her family to Wayne Co MS. Lydia last appears in the 1840 Wayne Co MS Census where she is recorded as Head of Household. Living with her are four sons and two daughters. Lydia's date of death and place of burial are not known.
Born c. 1785 New Hanover Co NC
Migrated c. 1790 with family to Robeson Co NC
Married c. 1800 in South Carolina to Jacob Hutto b. 1773 Orangeburg Co SC
[The writer] will look for [the] source that shows Lydia's maiden name to be Lewis (I think it was a deed). Some of her brothers moved down to southern MS about the same time. One of them was Walden [NO], another Simeon. I still haven't been able to prove her parents.
Immigrated after 1816 to Wayne Co MS
Died after 1840 Wayne Co MS
