1895: Sheriff Hutchinson; My kind of lawman

Back in the old west, public hangings were a regular occurrence. Apparently they were also common in the "old east" as verified in this article wherein Sheriff Bob Hutchinson meted out a punishment to fit the crime. The Hutchinson family has a splendid historical heritage in the Mercer County area, especially in Hamilton Township.

Hi Tom: My grandfather, David S. Hutchinson came along later and also was a Freeholder. He died in 1912 at the age of 82. He grew up in Hamilton Township and was a descendant of Jonathan and Rachel Hutchinson. Regards
