About Samuel Hutchins (Hutchings), Sr.

There is considerable confusion between the lineage of this Samuel Hutchins and Samuel Hutchins of Haverhill, MA. Both men have a claimed birth date of Aug. 20 1682, and both were supposedly married to a Hannah Merrill, and lived within 50 miles of each other. Both men also have some of the same claimed descendants. However, these appear to be two separate men, with separate sets of siblings. The two Samuels should not be merged, pending the sorting out of their proper descendant lines.
