Query - Hutchins

Seeking info on Joshua HUTCHINS (1760-1821) of Bakerstown (later Poland and Minot), Maine. He married 12-Dec-1788 at New Gloucester to Lydia PRINCE (1767-1839) and had the following children all born Bakerstown/Poland/Minot: Jonathan b. 1789, Isaiah b. 1791, Martha b. 1793, Rhoda b. 1795, Polly b. 1797, Isabella b. 1799, Olive b. 1803, Harriet b. 1806, Beulah b. 1808, Rachel b. 1810, and Rufus b. 1813. Three of the daughters married VERRILL boys.

Local history says he was a Rev. soldier and pensioner, but I have been unable to verify his service or locate a pension file. He is NOT Joshua HUTCHINS of Kennebunk. He is perhaps a brother or cousin to Benjamin (1756-1811) HUTCHINS of Bakerstown who m. 1790 at New Gloucester to Nancy RIDER and/or Joseph HUTCHINS (1764-1839) of Bakerstown (later Hartford) who m. 1794 at Turner to Sarah/Sally RUSSELL.

Would like to locate ancestry as well as connect with other descendants.
