Frank Hutson

A representative farmer and stock buyer of Marion township, Fayette county, Ohio, is Frank Hutson, who is known as one of the alert, progressive and successful agriculturists of his county. His whole career has been devoted to agricultural pursuits, and the years of his residence in the county where he was born have but served to strengthen the feeling of admiration on the part of his fellow citizens, owing to the clean and wholesome life he has led and the worthy example he sets to the younger generation. He is descended from a pioneer family of the county, a family which has always stood for righteous living. Although still a young man in years, he has already demonstrated his right to be included among the best farmers of his township, and it is safe to predict a prosperous future for him.

Frank Hutson, the son of Rufus and Emma (Vesey) Hutson, was born March 6, 1884, on the Nathan Vesey farm. His father was a native of Jeffersonville, Ohio, and was a lifelong farmer and prominent citizen of the community in which he lived. Rufus Hutson and wife were the parents of three children, Homer, Edward and Frank.

The district schools of the county were attended by Frank Hutson during his boyhood days, attending the Klever school and later the Fairview school in Wayne township. As a lad he assisted his father on the home farm during his minority and, marrying at the age of twenty-two years, at once began the management of his father's farm. This he has been successfully operating for the past eight years with a success that shows that he is a man of ability and wise discretion. In addition to his regular farm duties, he is largely interested in the buying and selling of live stock, a venture whch has proven very profitable to him. His farm is well equipped with all of the latest machinery for scientific agriculture, and by keeping in close touch with the best agricultural literature of the day he secures the maximum results from his efforts.

Mr. Hutson was married October 10, 1906, to Jessie E. Thompson, the daughter of George and Ella Harley, and to this union has been born one daughter, Helen Elizabeth.

In the success of the Democratic party Mr. Hutson has always been much interested and, while favoring all measures tending towards good government, yet has never been active in political matters. He and his wife are faithful attendants of the Methodist Episcopal church. Fraternally, Mr. Hutson holds his membership in the Knights of Pythias. He is a man of essentially domestic tastes and is devoted to his home interests, taking an intelligent and personal interest in everything pertaining to the welfare of his community, and he is regarded as a man of high ideals and strength of character. He is a genial man, easily approachable and gives stability to the locality where he has chosen to live.
