  • "about eighty, she, in a great degree, lost her sight; about ninety it returned. Her hair changed a few years ago from white to dark brown. I have seen her and conversed with her. At this advanced age she did not appear to be weary of the world."-Journal, vol.iii, p. 66.

The following story appeared in the Village Record, of Hightstown, New Jersey, dated 20 Nov 1857:

Mr. Editor: On the farm now owned by Isaac Goldy, near Milford, about 2 ½ miles from Hightstown, there is an ancient burial ground, wherein several of the old owners of the soil thereabout found the last resting place of their earthly remains. From a tombstone in that place I copy the following, verbatim et literatu: "Sacred to the Memory of Ann Hutchinson, Relict of Wm Hutchinson Esqr. departed this Life Jany. 4th 1801. Aged 101 years 9 Months and seven days. She was mother of 13 children, and Grand Mother and great grand mother, & great great Grand Mother of 375 Persons." I give also the punctuation and Capital letters.

... we perceive that she was born on the 17th day of March 1699, and consequently lived in three different centuries, i.e. she was born on the 17th, lived through the whole 18th, and died in the 19th century. A very lengthy article might be written upon the times, the scenes, and changes through which she passed, and which she witnessed; but those conversant with history can fill up the great space of her life with general incidents to suit themselves. I will only mention a few facts in connection with her history, and that of her family. She was the wife of Wm. Hutchinson, Esq, a Justice of the Peace under the crown and government of England. ... Ann Hutchinson retained her faculties to the last, and could see to thread a needle or read without spectacles when in her 101st year. The family have been remarkable for longevity. ...

Her son, Joseph, started the Methodist movement in the area. Mrs. Hutchinson's gravestone, a lonely one in a large field, can be seen in Etra today.
