Dose this sound like your guy. Without any additional information this is who I came up with. I know in Tennessee many families were split because of how Tennessee was laid out at the time. The Tennessee river was the dividing line part of northern Tennessee was union and southern part confederate. So truly families were separated.
Name: John A Hutchison Enlistment Date: 15 Nov 1861 Enlistment Place: Camp Jim Davis, Macon Co., Tennessee Enlistment Rank: Private Muster Date: 15 Nov 1861 Muster Place: Tennessee Muster Company: E Muster Regiment: 7th Battn Cavalry Muster Regiment Type: Cavalry Muster Information: Enlisted Side of War: Confederacy Residence Place: Smith County, Tennessee
Hope this helps,
Please clarify what that document is and where you found it. It looks like an inmate history for one of the Old Soldier's Homes that were established for former Union soldiers sometime after Civil War, and the person that it is a record for was living in New Hampshire. That doesn't sound like a match for a Confederate from Tennessee.
Thanks for your quick response. I have found some additional information - maybe it will help. John Hutchison was married to Hulda L. Byerley on June 5, 1860 in Benton, Marshall, Kentucky. His death certificate says Johnson City, Washington County File #291. He had a son named Robert E. Hutchison. It appears he is buried in Mountain Home National Cemetery, Mountain Home, Tennessee.
He was living in Benton, Marshall, Kentucky when he was married in 1860. His death certificate says Registration District, 911
Also, it appears that in 1880 he was married to "Hannah" it looks like in Smith Precinct, Marshall County, State of Kentucky,
Thanks for your assistance
Please specify which side he fought on. As Elliot pointed out, the state was rather divided.
Dear Ms. Crawford,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Confederate Organizations in the War Department Collection of Confederate Records (Record Group 109) that includes Tennessee - Seventh (Bennett's) Battalion, Cavalry AND Eighth Cavalry - Compiled Service Record of Hutchison, John A and Tennessee - Twelfth (Green's) Cavalry - Compiled Service Record of Hutchison, John. We also located Carded Records Showing Military Service of Soldiers Who Fought in Volunteer Organizations During the American Civil War in the Records of the Adjutant General's Office, 1762 - 1917 (Record Group 94) that includes Hutchison, John - Age [Blank], Year: [BLANK] - Eleventh Cavalry and Hutchison, John - Age [Blank], Year: 1865 - Ninth Cavalry.
