Biographical note from "Guide to the Hutcheson and allied families papers 1836-1997; bulk 1920-1949" "Captain Joseph Chappell Hutcheson, Sr. Captain Hutcheson was born in Mecklenburg County, Virginia on May 18, 1842 to Charles Sterling and Mary Hutcheson. In 1861 he graduated from Randolph-Macon College in Boydton, Virginia and immediately enlisted in Co. C of the Twenty-First Virginia Infantry, CSA; he served under General T.J. Stonewall Jackson in the Shenandoah Valley campaign of 1862. In July of 1862 he obtained a substitute, John Kohlup, who subsequently deserted. J.C. Hutcheson, Sr. reenlisted in October 1864 and was elected 2nd Lieutentant and subsequently 1st Lieutentant of Company E of the 14th Virginia Infantry Regiment. At the Battle of Dinwiddie Courthouse, March 31, 1865, he was promoted to Captain of Company E. The recording of that promotion has been lost. After the war he entered the University of Virginia and graduated with a law degree and came to Grimes County, Texas, in 1867 to begin his law practice with brother, John William Hutcheson. Hutcheson relocated to Houston in 1872 and remained for 52 years. His law practice thrived and he was elected to the Seventeenth Texas Legislature in 1880. He drafted the act establishing the University of Texas, was a father for the development of the Houston ship channel and played a leading role in the expansion of trade and commerce of Houston. He served in 1890 as chairman of the State Democratic Convention and was elected twice to the House of Representatives. Hutcheson married Mildred Carrington in 1867 and with her had eight children, five surviving infancy: Elise (Mrs. E.Y. Chapin), Mary, Stella (Mrs. L.M. Dabney), Mildred (Mrs. P.C. Clymer), Katherine, J.C. Hutcheson, Jr., Charles Sterling Hutcheson, Allen Carrington Hutcheson. Mildred C. Hutcheson died in 1883 and Capt. Hutcheson married Elizabeth Palmer Milby in 1886. Their children were Palmer Hutcheson and Rosalie Hutcheson (Mrs. L. Bosworth). He died on May 25, 1924 at his summer home on Signal Mountain near Chattanooga, TN."
