Who was the Hutcheson or Hutchison who could have married a Mary Thomas, possibly in Barony, Glasgow, Lanarkshire around 1810-1820?
We now know that Mary died in Davidson, Tennessee in 1868. Some time before the discovery of her death and burial dates by another Thomas family researcher, I found her in Tennessee in the 1860 census, along with her second husband Robert Mcguigin, living in the household of Neil Hutchison, who seems to have been her only child.
Mary married her second husband Robert Mcguigin (spelt McQuiben) 17th November 1838, Gorbals, Glasgow. The record of Mary's second marriage (Scotland Select Marriages, 1561-1910) gives her as Mary Thomas but, it was common for Scottish women in widowhood to revert to their maiden names. (Mary was descended from a family of Thomases who lived in Stirlingshire, Perthshire and Dunbartonshire in the 18th and 19th centuries. I am descended from her brother Walter. We know a great deal about other members of the Thomas family but less about Mary.)
We have never been able to pin down the name and dates of her first husband and her marriage to him. This may well have been because Mary's family of origin seemed to veer between conventional Presbyterian parish churches and less formal congregations whose records are harder to find when they exist at all. Given that Mary seems to have had only one child (who lived to adulthood, anyway) by her Hutchinson husband, it may be that he, the husband, died early in their marriage, perhaps because of some accident or maybe from illness. If you have a Hutchison forebear who married a Mary in the early 1800s, 1810-1823, perhaps think about whether he could be this chap.
