Thursday, May 21, 2015 Lilly Hutchison (1898-1989)

Lilly Hutchison was born on 9 October 1898 at the family home on Lockhart Street in Stonehouse, Scotland, to Alexander and Jessie (Semple) Hutchison. She was their second child born after the family returned to Scotland. Her father was a coal miner at the time of her birth. In 1901 the family lived at 31 New Street in Stonehouse and Alex continued to work in the mines.

On 21 July 1904 the family boarded the Anchor Line's S/S Furnessia in Glasgow to return to the United States. They arrived in New York City on 1 August and likely took the train to Kirksville, Missouri, their intended destination.

When the 1910 U.S. federal census was enumerated the family lived in Novinger, Missouri. Lilly lived with her parents ten years later and they remained in Novinger. By 1929 she went by "Lillian" and not "Lilly," the name her father listed when he registered her birth. At that time she lived in Kansas City, Missouri, at a boarding house on 917 Locust Avenue. It was the same boarding house at which her sister Maggie, and Maggie's future husband, William Bruce Melching lived.

On 27 June 1929 Lilly married Andrew Jackson McDaniel in Jackson County, Missouri. He was two years younger than Lilly and she fibbed a bit about her age, listing 1902 as her year of birth. In 1930 Andrew lived alone in another boarding house in Kansas City. I have been unable to find Lilly in the 1930 census.

By 1935 the couple lived in Memphis, Missouri, which is near the Iowa border. In 1940 they lived at 112 North Bever Street and had a daughter. Interestingly, Lilly's Social Security number was issued in Arizona before 1951. However, her last benefit check was mailed to an address in Memphis, Missouri.

Lilly (Hutchison) McDaniel died on 31 January 1989 in Memphis and was interred in the Memphis Cemetery.
