Was born in the city of New York in 1684, where he married Miss Catharine Cheeseman, his first wife, by whom he had 8 children, 25 grand children, 23 great grand children, and 3 great great grand children. At the age of 51 he married at Philadelphia Miss Ann Vandam, 19 years of age, by whom he had 17 children, 13 grand children, and 15 great grand children; making in the whole 132 children, of whom 45 are dead (1792) and 87 now living; the greater number of whom reside in Philadelphia. His second wife died in Philadelphia, 1788, aged 72 years and an half. He . . . has often said he thought himself in the prime of life, at the age of 60 years; up till his 81 [st] year, he used to carry, in his hunting excursions, a heavy English musket. He was ever a sweet, temperate and hard working man; and is now a good humoured hearty old man . . . . He knew the noted Pirate Jack, called Black-Beard, and says that an act of oblivion had passed, which permitted all pirates to return to their allegiance; that Black-Beard then came to Barbados where he saw him; this was a short time before that pirate made his last cruise and was killed in Carolina. His grandfather, Mr. Arthur Strangeways, died at Boston, sitting in his chair, at the age of 101 years. The above account was made, September, 1792, and Mr. Hutton died the December following, aged 104 years and 4 months, without any disease except extreme old age. [PP. 54-55.]
