2.12.1.8. David Connel Combs (1902-1986)

David Connel Combs was born on 2 December 1902 in Missouri to Leslie Carl and Georgia J. (Connel) Combs. His parents were living in Jackson, Missouri, in 1900 so it is likely that is the town in which David was born. The family had moved to Memphis, Missouri, by 1910 and remained there after his father died in 1923.

David, who went by Connel, married Ruth Hutchison on 15 January 1929 in Kansas City, Missouri. They lived in that city their entire married lives. In 1930 Connel worked as a salesman for a radio station but the next year he worked in the order department of Stromberg-Carlson Telephone Manufacturing Co. Perhaps the Depression caused the fortunes of the new technology company to sink because in 1939 Connel was hanging awnings. I believe he worked for the same company, Baker-Lockwood Manufacturing Co. where his wife worked in a clerical position. He was still working there in 1940 as a laborer. By 1959 he and Ruth lived 744 East 71st Terrace and Connel worked as a building contractor.

The couple had no children and Connel died on 10 March 1986 in Kansas City. He was interred in Forest Hill Cemetery. His wife died in 1993 and was buried beside him.

2.12.1.8. Ruth Hutchison (1905-1993)

Ruth Hutchison was born on 11 November 1905 in Missouri, most likely in Novinger. She was her parents' eighth and youngest child. She lived at home with her parents and siblings through 1920 but by 1929 she had moved to Kansas City, Missouri, and lived at 917 Locust Street.

She married David Connel Combs on 15 January 1929 in Kansas City. They lived in the same city the rest of their lives and lived in several rentals before owning their own home at 744 East 71st Terrace. Ruth worked for several years as a stenographer for Baker-Lockwood Manufacturing Co., a maker of tents and awnings. She and David had no children.

David died in 1968 and Ruth on 22 December 1993 in Kansas City. They are buried together at Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City.

2.12.1.7. Jane Hutchison (1903-1959)

Jane Hutchison was born at her parents' home on Canderside Toll in Dalserf, Scotland, to Alexander and Janet "Jessie" (Semple) Hutchison. She was their seventh child and the last born in Scotland. She was called Jeanie as a young girl, but for most of her life was called Janie by friends and family.

When Jane was just over a year old the family returned to the United States. They boarded the Anchor Line's S/S Furnessia on 21 July 1904 in Glasgow and arrived in New York City on 1 August. Their intended destination was Kirksville, Missouri. In 1910 the family lived in Novinger, Missouri, and Jane's father worked as a coal miner.

Jane never married and lived in Novinger for the remainder of her life. Her father died in 1927 and her mother died in 1942. I assume Jane lived with Alexander, her unmarried brother. She died on 28 January 1959 and Alexander died the next month on the 25th of February. Jane died of coronary thrombosis and bronchial asthma

Jane Hutchison was interred in Novinger City Cemetery near her parents. Her brother was buried in the family plot as well.

Daily Illinois State Journal, 27 December 1966

2.12.1.6. Joseph Hutchison (1901-1966)

Joseph Hutchison was born on 12 February 1901 at the family home on New Street in Stonehouse, Scotland. His parents were Alexander and Janet "Jessie" (Semple) Hutchison. His father worked as a coal miner at the time of Joseph's birth. When the 1901 census was enumerated, the month after Joseph's birth, the family lived at 31 New Street in Stonehouse.

On 21 July 1904 Joseph, his parents and siblings boarded the Anchor Line's S/S Furnessia in Glasgow. They arrived in New York City on 1 August and stated their destination was Kirksville, Missouri, which was where Jessie's mother lived.

In 1910 the family lived in Novinger, Missouri and continued to do so for at least the next twenty years. By 1930 Joseph was 19 years old and worked as a coal miner along side his father and two older brothers, Alexander and James.

By 1935 Joseph had moved to Springfield, Illinois, though he continued to work as a miner. According to Ruth Anna (Richardson) Hutchison's obituary, they married in 1938 in Missouri, and they lived at 519 South Edwin in Springfield after their marriage. In 1948 the couple lived at 2441 South 5th Street in Springfield. At the time of his death, he and his wife lived a 6 Bel Air Drive. He had left the mines and was working as a state government employee. He began as a clerk and later became an accountant for the State of Illinois, Department of Revenue. The couple had no children.

Joseph died in December 1966 in Macon, Georgia, and was buried at Rochester Cemetery in Rochester, Illinois.

NOTE: It is entirely possible that Joseph was married and divorced once before he married Ruth Anna Richardson. If so, his first wife was Edna L. Ridgeway (1905-1976) and they likely married between 1925 and 1930. In 1925 Edna lived in Hannibal, Missouri, and worked at a shoe factory. By 1930 a Joseph and Edna Hutchison were living in Chicago. He worked as an assembler for Western Electric and she she worked as an assembler at a toy factory. They boarded at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Markl on 2153 Adams Street. This Joseph Hutchison was born in Scotland, his parents were born in Scotland, and he became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1904, which would be correct for our Joseph Hutchison.

In 1932 Joseph and Edna lived in Taylorville, Illinois, and Joseph worked as a miner, which was an occupation more in keeping with his past history.  It should also be noted that James Hutchison, Joseph's brother, also lived in Taylorville. However, by 1935 Edna was back in Hannibal, Missouri, and worked for International Shoe Co. No husband was listed at the same address. In 1940 Edna lived with her parents and listed her marital status as divorced. So the time frame for the divorce was likely between 1932 and 1935, which would also make it possible for this Joseph Hutchison to be our Joseph.

What makes this theory interesting is that Edna had a son named Harold "Hank" Hutchison. In 1930 he lived with his maternal grandparents, Samuel and Sarah (Whitaker) Ridgeway, in Hannibal. He was listed as six years old on the 1930 census. It is possible the he was an illegitimate son of Edna's born before she married Joseph Hutchison or it could be his child. We just don't know because no birth record has been located. According to the Social Security Death Index record for Harold, he was born on 3 September 1923.

Edna (Ridgeway) Hutchison died in 14 December 1976 in San Francisco, California. Her son, and possibly Joseph's, married Virginia Martin on 25 March 1950 in San Francisco. They had one child named Jana. Harold died on 16 August 1991 in Sweet Grass, California.

In order to conclusively determine if Joseph Hutchison, son of Alexander and Janet (Semple) Hutchison, was the same Joseph Hutchison that was briefly married to Edna Ridgeway, a marriage record needs to be located. The date of the marriage would also indicate whether Harold Hutchison might be Joseph's child. What weighs against this theory is no child was mentioned in Joseph Hutchison or his wife Ruth Anna (Richardson) Hutchison's obituaries.

2.12.1.5. Andrew Jackson McDaniel (1900-1974)

Andrew Jackson McDaniel was born on 9 November 1900 in Missouri to John William and Mary Elzena (Huggans) McDaniel. It is likely he was born in Sand Hill, Missouri, which was where his parents lived a few months before his birth. His father was a farmer.

By 1910 the family had moved to Jefferson, Missouri, and by 1920, the family had moved to Memphis, Missouri, and his father worked as a carpenter. By 1929 Andrew had moved to Kansas City and lived at 916 Charlotte Street.

He married Lilly "Lillian" Hutchison on 27 June 1929. However, the next year, when the U.S. federal census was enumerated Andrew lived alone in a boarding house at 407 9th Street, East, in Kansas City. He worked as a barber.

By 1935 he and Lilly had moved north to Memphis, Missouri, and in 1940 they lived at 112 North Bever Street, had a three-year-old daughter, and Andrew owned his own barber shop. His Social Security card was issued before 1951 in Arizona. However, his last benefit check was mailed to an address in Memphis, Missouri in 1974.

Andrew Jackson McDaniel died on 9 February 1974 and was interred at Memphis Cemetery.

2.12.1.5. 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.

Kansas City and Prohibition

Missourians rejected statewide prohibition in three separate referenda in 1910, 1912 and 1918. Carrie Nation, the famous face of the temperance movement, was actually arrested in Kansas City for smashing liquor bottles with a hatchet. The 18th Amendment imposed prohibition on Missouri in 1919. But Kansas City remained largely unaffected.

The city was run by Democrat brothers James and Tom Pendergast during prohibition. Thanks to the Pendergast machine prohibition simply never existed in reality. The bars were kept open and the liquor flowed. The federal prosecutor was on the Pendergast payroll and never brought a single felony prosecution to trial under the Volstead Act.

The editor of the Omaha Herald, remarked, "If you want to see some sin, forget about Paris. Go to Kansas City."

That's what Kansas City, Missouri, was like when Maggie (Hutchison) Melching and Ruth (Hutchison) Combs lived there.

Prohibition was finally repealed in 1993.

2.12.1.4. William Bruce Melching (1907-1989)

William Bruce Melching was born on 5 June 1907 in Kansas to Joseph Nelson and Mary Margaret (Havener) Melching. In 1910 the family lived in Big Hill, Oklahoma, and his father worked as a general laborer on a farm. By 1920 the family had moved back to Kansas and lived in at 529 West Third Street in Junction. William's father listed has occupation as a hay baler. When the 1925 Kansas state census was enumerated William's father was dead and the family lived in Denton, Kansas. William and his older brother worked as laborers to support the family.

By 1930 William had moved to Kansas City, Missouri, and boarded with a family living at 917 Locust Avenue. His future wife, Maggie Melcher, also had a room there. William worked as a laborer in a garage. The 1931 Kansas City directory indicated William lived at the same address in 1931 and worked as a salesman for Consolidated Motors. He remained at the same address in 1933 but worked as a collector for Edward Kramer & Edwards. The next year he moved to 20 West 9th Street.

William married Maggie "Margaret" Hutichson between 1935 and 1940. When the 1940 census was enumerated he and Maggie lodged at 3220 Harrison Street and William worked on the production line at an automotive plant. By 1955 he and Maggie had moved to 331 North White Avenue and he worked for Chevrolet Motors.

William Melching died on 21 August 1989.

Maggie (Hutchison) Melching Obituary

Margaret H. Melching, 98, southwest Kansas City, died March 5, 1994, at a hospital in Memphis, Mo. Graveside services will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday at Forest Hill Cemetery. The family suggests contributions to the Scotland County Memorial Hospital, Memphis. Mrs. Melching was born in Lanarkshire, Scotland; grew up in Novinger, Mo.; and lived in this area most of her life.

She formerly worked for the Kansas City Life Insurance Co. Her husband of 58 years, William B. Melching, died in 1989. Survivors include two nieces.

2.12.1.4. Maggie Hutchison (1895-1984)

Maggie Hutchison was born on 14 December 1895 at her parents home on King Street in Stonehouse, Scotland. She was their first child born in Scotland after they returned the previous year. Maggie's father was a coal miner at the time of her birth. In 1901 the family had moved to 31 New Street in Stonehouse.

On 21 July 1904 Maggie, her parents and siblings boarded the Anchor Line's S/S Furnessia in Glasgow to return to the United States. They arrived in New York on 1 August 1904 and likely to the train to Kirksville, Missouri.

When the 1910 U.S. federal census was enumerated, Maggie and her family lived in Novinger, Missouri. She was 14 years old and her older brothers, Alexander and James had already joined her father in the coal mines.

By 1920, Maggie had moved to Kansas City, Missouri, and was a boarder at 1703 Independence Boulevard. She worked as a stenographer at a letter shop. When she moved to Kansas City, she began going by Margaret instead of Maggie, the name her father provided on her birth registration. In 1924 she lived at 1444 Admiral Boulevard and worked as a clerk for the Chamber of Commerce. I like thinking of Maggie as a single girl in the big city during the Roaring Twenties.

Six years later when the 1930 census was enumerated, Maggie was 35 years old and boarded at a house at 917 Locust Street.She did clerical work for an insurance company. Coincidentally, her future husband also boarded at the same address. Perhaps this is how they met?

Maggie Hutchison married William Bruce Melching some time between 1935 and 1940. She was approximately 12 years older than her husband. He worked on the production line at an automotive plant in 1940. Maggie worked as a typist at a life insurance company and they rented a room from Mr. and Mr. McLain at 3220 Harrison Street.

In 1955 the couple was listed in city directory. They lived at 331 North White Avenue.

William Bruce and Maggie (Hutchison) Melching had no children.

Her husband died in 1989. Maggie died on 5 May 1994 and was interred at Forest Hill Cemetery in Kansas City, Missouri.

2.12.1.3.1.1. Joseph Clyde Northen (1946- )

Joseph Clyde Northen was born on 15 November 1946 in Georgia to Ernest Edward and Lila Jeanette (Barker) Northen, Jr. His father was an Army Chaplain at the time of his birth. His paternal grandfather was also a minister.

On 15 June 1952 Joseph, his mother and two older siblings boarded the U.S. Naval Ship General Maurice Rose, which was a transport ship, in Bremerhaven, Germany. They arrived on 23 June in New York City. At the time the family returned to the United States, they were living in Catlett, Virginia.

In 1955 Joseph's parents were living in Newport News, but on 23 July 1956, Joseph, his mother and two older siblings flew from San Francisco to Honolulu. My assumption is they were on their way to Japan to join Joseph's father. His mother returned to Honolulu alone from Tokyo in 1957.

By 1968 Joseph was a senior at the University of Richmond in Richmond, Virginia. He was studying to receive a Bachelor or Arts degree in Music and participated in intramural, University Choir, Men's Glee Club, Baptist Student Union, and the Ministerial Association.

Some time after he graduated Joseph met and married Kathy Ann Sauerwein. In 1985 when her father died, the couple lived in at 1238 Belvedere Drive in Charleston, South Carolina. By 1988 they lived in Danville, Virginia, where Joseph Northen served as the Minister of Music at the First Baptist Church of Danville for 25 years before he retired in 2013.

Joseph Clyde and Kathy Ann (Sauerwein) Northen had one son.

Kathy Ann Sauerwein was born on 9 April 1950 to John Otto and Rachel Ilene (Hutchison) Sauerwein. I do not know where she was born only that her parents lived in Iowa City, Iowa in 1951.

In 1965 the family was living in Jacksonville, Illinois, and Kathy Ann was a freshman at Jacksonville High School. She was also a member of the variety marching band. Her 1968 senior yearbook, The Crimson J, survives. Kathy Ann graduated cum honore, was a member of the orchestra and marching band, the chaplain of the National Honor Society, staff member of the Herald and Inkblot, in the cast of the senior play, won a John Phillip Souza award, chosen to play in a band on the European trip sponsored by Illinois Music Educators' Association, the recipient of an Illinois state scholarship and a Baptist scholarship, and was awarded two scholarships to MacMurray College -- one music and one scholastic  -- and planned to major in music.

By 1985, the year of her father's death, Kathy Ann, had married Joseph Clyde Northen, who was a Baptist minister. The couple lived at 1238 Belvedere Drive in Charleston, South Carolina, and had a son. In 1993 the family lived in Danville, Virginia, and two years later Kathy Ann's mother died in Danville.

In Danville Kathy Ann was the organist and pianist for the First Baptist Church of Danville. As late as 2013, Kathy Ann (Sauerwein) Northen and her husband were still living in Danville.

2.12.1.3.1. John Otto Sauerwein (1917-1985)

John Otto Sauerwein was born on 10 September 1917 in St. Clair County, Illinois, to Otto Wigand and Elizabeth Catherine (Blum) Sauerwein. In 1920 John and his parents lived on Main Street in Lenzburg, Illinois, and his father was the manager of a soft drink parlor.

John's father died in 1922. Eight years later he, his mother and sister lived at 10 North Main Street in Marissa, Illinois. His mother took in laundry to make ends meet. She rented their home for $5 per month. Ten years later John was 22 years old, lived in Old Marissa, Illinois, with his mother and sister. Old Marissa is less than a mile north of Marissa. He worked as an instructor at the local recreation center. His mother did housework in private homes and his sister was a folder at a shoe factory.

By 1951 John had married a young widow whose maiden name was Rachel Ilene Hutchison. Her first husband had been killed in World War II, according to my Grandmother. John had taken a job with KE-M Company as an operator and the family lived at 123 High in Iowa City, Iowa. By 1955 the family lived about 100 miles south in Keokuk, Iowa. They lived at 1902 Orleans Avenue and John remained with KE-M Company working as a laborer. In 1957 the family lived at the same address and John continued to work for KE-M Company.

Rachel Ilene Htchison was born on 1 July 1922 in Novinger, Missouri, and was the only child of James and Emma Frances (Hanlin) Hutchison. She was born the year after her parents' marriage. Between 1922 and 1928 Rachel and her parents moved to Taylorville, Illinois.

In 1930 Rachel and her parents lived at 811 West Franklin in Taylorville, Illinois, and her father was a coal miner. She was a senior at Taylorville High School in 1940. The Drift school yearbook described Rachel as "ambitious...persistent...Rachel has consistently made good grades during her four high school years. Commercial work is her particular field."

yearbook, The Drift, page 84

Rachel was also a member of the Girls' Athletic Association in high school. The purpose of the organization was to develop better lives by learning how to be "square" and how to be good losers as well as good winners.

During her senior year in high school, she continued to live with her parents at 718 West Franklin in Taylorville. According to my Grandmother, Rachel married about the time World War II began. Her social security application indicated she changed surname to Montgomery in December 1942. I assume this was her first husband, who was killed during the war.

After his death she married John Otto Sauerwein by 1951. The couple lived at 123 High Street in Iowa City, Iowa, in 1951. Her husband remained with the same company, but moved to Keokuk, Iowa, by 1955 when the coupled lived at 1902 Orleans Avenue. They were at the same address in 1957. It does not appear that Rachel worked during her marriage.

By 1959 her husband worked for the Illinois state government and the couple lived at 1034 Dayton Street in Jackson, Illinois. The next year they had moved to 906 Grove Street and her husband worked at a power plant.

John Sauerwein died in 1985 and Rachel in 1995. Her residence at the time was Danville, Virginia, which is where her daughter lived. Rachel Ilene (Hutchison) Sauerwein was buried in Memorial Lawn Cemetery in Jacksonville, Illinois.

2.12.1.3. Emma Frances Hanlin (1900-1983)

Emma Frances Hanlin was born on 19 March 1900 in Missouri, most likely Adair county, to Andrew James and Sarah "Sadie" Melviney (Darnell) Hanlin. Three months later, when the 1900 census was enumerated, the family lived in Benton, Missouri, and her father was a farmer. In 1910 her father rented a farm in Nineveh, Missouri. However, by 1920, though the family remained in Nineveh, her father worked as a watchman for a coal company.

On 3 September 1921 Emma Frances married James Hutchison in Novinger. She and James had a daughter the next year. Rachel was born in Novinger, Missouri, which would indicate James and Emma Frances moved to Taylorville, Illinois, between 1922 and 1928. James worked as a coal miner his entire working life.

Emma Frances and her family lived in several rented houses on the west side of Taylorville, but by 1940 lived at 718 West Franklin in a home the family owned. Her husband had only worked about half the year in 1939.

Emma Frances (Hanlin) Hutchison died in November 1983. At the time of her death she lived in Jacksonville, Illinois. She was buried beside her husband in Novinger Cemetery.

2.12.1.3. James Hutchison (1893-1970)

James Hutchison was born on 16 August 1893 in Streator, Illinois, to Alexander and Janet "Jessie" (Semple) Hutchison. He was their third child and second son. He shared a birthday with his older brother, Alexander, and his father was a coal miner at the time of his birth. Before James celebrated his first birthday, his family traveled to New York City and boarded the Anchor Line's S/S Ethiopia. They arrived in Glasgow on 14 February 1894 and lived in Scotland for the next 10 years.

When the 1901 census was enumerated, James attended school and the family lived at 31 New Street in Stonehouse. While in Scotland four siblings were added to the family. On 21 July 1904 the family boarded the S/S Furnessia in Glasgow and arrived in New York City on 1 August 1904. They likely took the train to Kirksville, Missouri, their destination.

When the 1910 census was taken James was 17 years old and worked in the coal mines along with his father and older brother. On 5 June 1917 he registered for the draft, lived in Novinger, Missouri, and worked at the Kansas City Midland Coal Company. He was described as being of medium height and build with dark blue eyes and black hair.

He was inducted into the U.S. Army on 13 May 1918 and served as a private in Company A, 34th Infantry Division. He arrived oversears on 18 August 1918 and was honorably discharged on 19 June 1919. The division never fought as a unit during the war, though some elements were sent to other units to support their final operations. By 1920 James Hutchison was back in Novinger, Missouri. He lived with his parents and siblings and worked as a miner.

On 2 September 1921, James Hutchison and Emma Frances Hanlin received a marriage license in Kirksville, Missouri. Both applicants stated they were over the age of 21. They were married on 3 September by Glen A. Lewis, minister, in Novinger. They had a daughter in 1922.

Between 1922 and 1928, the couple had moved to Taylorville, Illinois, which was about 225 miles east of Novinger. The couple lived at 406 West Poplar and James worked as a miner. In 1930 they lived at 811 West Franklin, a home they rented for $16 a month. In 1932, they lived at 720 West Franklin, and by 1940 they owned their own home at 718 West Franklin. The home was valued at $1,500. James continued to work as a coal miner. He had worked 26 weeks in 1939 and his income was reported as $750.

They remained at the West Franklin address when James registered for the World War II draft. He worked for the Peabody Mine Company, at their No. 8 mine. James was 49 years old and his appearance was described as 5-feet 9-inches tall, 170 pounds, blue eyes, brown hair, and a light complexion.

James died on 10 September 1970. At the time of his death he lived in Jacksonville, Illinois. He was buried in Novinger Cemetery in Novinger, Missouri. His wife lived another 13 years.

314 Engineers, 89th Division in World War I

Alexander Hutchison served as a private with the 314th Engineers Regiment, which was attached to the 89th Division during World War I. Among the Missouri State Archives holdings is a pamphlet entitled, From Camp Funston to the Rhineland with the 314 Engineers, 89th Division, Army of the United States, 1917-1918.

After reading this pamphlet, I learned the 89th Division was organized in 1917 and most of the men were drawn from Kansas, Missouri, Colorado, Nebraska, South Dakota, Arizona, and New Mexico. Specifically, the men of the 314th Regiment came principally from Missouri. Alexander was inducted into the Army on 2 April 1918, left camp and traveled to Europe via Hoboken, New Jersey, and Halifax, Nova Scotia, for England aboard the S/S Carpathia. They arrived in Liverpool on 24 June and went by train the same day to Winchester Rest Camp. Four days later they entrained for Cherbourg, disembarking on 29 June and marched to an American rest camp in the vicinity of Cherbourg. On 30 June they entrained for the Training Area, arriving 2 July at Humberville and marched to quarters.

A vigorous course of training was undertaken. The 89th Division was the first American division to move up to the line by truck transportation. They relieved the 82nd American Division in the Lucey Sector northwest of Toul. During their relief of the 82nd, central parts of the sector were subjected to a severe bombardment of mustard gas by the Germans. It was the 89th's baptism of fire.

The Engineers regiment was stationed at Lagney, near division headquarters, and spent most of its time working on construction of a second position, or main line of resistance, constructing strong points, building concrete pillboxes, dugouts, putting up entanglements and in gas-proofing dugouts and doing other engineer work in the front line position.

On the morning of 12 September 1918, the 89th Division commenced its first offensive, in company with three other divisions, they began the St. Mihiel Offensive. The division captured all of its objectives and established its record as a reliable fighting division. The Engineers were assigned to each infantry brigade for wire cutting, demolition, forward road work.

The general situation on 1 November 1918 was the the enemy was endeavoring to withdraw from France and Belgium and was using desperate efforts to stop the pressure coming up from the south and applied by the American Army. If the Americans were permitted to get to the Meuse, it was clear they could cut important southern railways the Germans needed for their retreat. The 89th Division jumped over the top of the trenches that morning; by afternoon the Heights of Barricourt were in their possession. It is said that Marshall Foch stated, when he received this news, "the war is over." The fighting continued day and night but the Germans were pushed across the Meuse.

During the battle the Engineers were on road construction and maintenance, doing emergency work necessary to ensure the advance of artillery and ammunition and rationing of the troops. Bridges were rebuilt, old roads repaired, new ones made and information secured in regard to Meuse river crossings. Foot bridges for the passage of the infantry were built at Stenay and near Pouilly, two pontoon rafts were constructed, ferrying two infantry regiments across the the Meuse the night of November 10-11. A floating balk and chess bridge was also built.

After Armistice Day, the 89th Division entered Germany on 4 December and became an occupation army stationed neard Kyllburg. The Engineers' work involved building construction, supervision of public utilities and repair and maintenance of roads.

2.12.1.2. Alexander Hutchison (1891-1959)

Alexander Hutchison was born on 16 August 1891 in Streator, Illinois, to Alexander and Janet "Jessie" (Semple) Hutchison. He was their second child and oldest son. His father was a coal miner and the family likely lived in Coalville, a company town, just outside of Streator. Before Alexander turned three years old, the family returned to Scotland, arriving in Glasgow on 14 February 1894 aboard the Anchor Line's S/S Ethiopia. They boarded the liner in New York City.

In 1901 the family lived at 31 New Street in Stonehouse. Alexander attended school with his brother, James, and sister, Maggie. Alexander and Jessie's family returned to the United States in 1904. On 21 July they boarded the S/S Furnessia in Glasgow and arrived on 1 August, landing in New York City. They told customs officials their destination was Kirksville, Missouri.

By 1910 Alexander was 19 years old and worked along side his father in the coal mines. He lived with his parents and siblings, which included six younger brothers and sisters, in Nineveh, Missouri. On 5 June 1917, Alexander registered for the World War I draft. He worked as a miner for the Kansas City Midland Coal Company in Novinger, Missouri, and was described as being tall with a medium build, light blue eyes and dark brown hair. He had not disabled in any way.

On 2 April 1918 Alexander was inducted into the United States Army and served as a private with the 314th Engineers. The unit was attached to the 89th Division and saw action in Europe, arriving on 12 Jun 1918. He was honorably discharged on 26 May 1919.

When the 1920 U.S. federal census was enumerated, Alexander was working as a coal miner and living in Nineveh with his parents and most of his siblings. Only sister, Maggie, had left home. After his father died in 1927, Alexander moved to Taylorville, Illinois, He lived in a boarding house rented by James Dickerson. He continued to work as a coal miner. His brother, James and his wife also lived in Taylorville. James was also a miner.

By 1940 he was back in Novinger and lived with his mother and sister Janie. He worked as a loader in the coal mines. Neither he or his sister ever married. They lost their mother in 1942.

Alexander died on 25 Feb 1959. According to the Missouri State Archives, he died out of state, which is why he does not have a Missouri death certificate.  Alexander was buried beside his parents in Novinger Cemetery.

Children of Alexander and Janet (Semple) Hutchison

2.12.1.1. Jessie Hutchison (abt 1889-abt 1891)

Janet's obituary said, "one child preceded her in death." My grandmother, Alice (Muir) Jennings' genealogy notebook indicated that child was named Jessie and she was their first born child. The notebook also said Jessie died at 18 months. Therefore, the dates I have listed are merely my best guess; no documents have been located to date to support them. The only evidence little Jessie ever existed are Jessie's obituary and my grandmother's notebook.

2.12.1. Alexander Hutchison (1861-1927)

Alexander Hutchison was born on 29 October 1860 at his parents home on Galston Road, which was located in the village of Hurlford, Riccarton Parish, Ayrshire, Scotland. His parents were Alexander and Lillias (Ewings) Hutchison. His father was a coal miner at the time of his birth. When the 1861 census was enumerated the family lived in Galloway's Land in the same village.

They remained in Hurlford in 1871 but lived in Portlander Rows, which may have been housing associated with the Portland Colliery Company, Ltd. in the village. By 1881, the family had moved to Loudoun Parish and lived at 52 North East Loudoun Rows. Alexander was 21 years old and worked in the coal mines along side his father.

Alexander Hutchison, who went by Alex, arrived in New York City on 23 March 1882 aboard the Anchor Line's S/S Anchoria. He traveled steerage. His parents and brother, Joseph remained in Scotland. Why he chose to settle in Streator, Illinois, is unclear. We do know that at least one of the collieries advertised their jobs at the railway station in New York.

Alex and Jessie Semple were married on 2 January 1889 in Streator, Illinois. Both of them lived in the same town at the time of their marriage and Alex worked as a miner. The couple had two sons when they lived in Streator.

On 14 February 1894 Alex and his family arrived in Glasgow, Scotland, aboard the Anchor Line's S/S Ethiopia. They had traveled to New York City to board the passenger liner. The next year the family lived at 20 Swinhill Colliery in Dalserf. Alex paid an annual rent for the home of 3 pounds, 11 shillings and worked at the Swinhill Colliery. Between 1895 and 1901, the couple had three more children.

When the 1901 census was enumerated, the family lived at 31 New Street in Stonehouse. Alex worked in the mines as he did for the remainder of his life. The couple moved back to Dalserf before 1903 where another child was born.

The next year Alex and his family returned to the United States to live. They boarded the Anchor Line's S/S Furnessia in Glasgow on 21 June 1904 and arrived in New York City on 1 August. They listed their destination as Kirksville, Missouri.

The couple had their youngest child in 1905, which made for a family of seven children, who lived to adulthood. When the 1910 and 1920 censuses were enumerated Alex and Jessie lived in Nineveh, Missouri.

Alex died on 19 May 1927 of chronic myocarditis at the age of 64. His doctor had been treating him since the beginning of the month. He was buried on 21 May 1927 in Novinger City Cemetery.
