Frank A. Hutton

In 1860, Frank Hutton was 17, and lived with his family in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. He enlisted in the 110th Pennsylvania Infantry in December 1861. The 110th moved into the Shenandoah Valley, and was attacked by Stonewall Jackson on March 23, 1862 at Winchester, Virginia, suffering heavy losses. The 110th moved over to Fredericksburg in May, and had another encounter with Jackson the next month at Port Republic. Hutton was discharged on June 12, 1862. He enlisted in Stewarts Infantry Regiment on July 16, 1864. Hutton was discharged on November 14, 1864. He finally joined the 56th Infantry on April 13, 1865, and took part in the events leading up to Lee’s surrender. Hutton was promoted to corporal in May, and mustered out in June 1865.

After the war, he married Florence Longwell, and had two daughters. They were in Grundy, Missouri in 1870 — along with Florence’s father James Longwell — and in 1880 the Guadalupe Valley, Texas. Hutton died there in 1886, at the age of 42.
