"FLETCHER HUTTON, deceased, is numbered among the honored pioneers of Lee County, and the history of this community would be incomplete if this record of his life was omitted....

The childhood days of our subject were chiefly spent in Pennsylvania, he being nineteen years of age when the family came West. In the experiences and hardships of pioneer life he bore his share and aided in the arduous task of developing a farm. Throughout his life he followed agricultural pursuits and so successful was he in his business dealings that he became the owner of over six hundred acres of fine land....

The death of Mr. Hutton occurred at his home on the 20th of May, 1879, and was deeply mourned by all who knew him. He was a valued citizen of the community who took an active interest in all public affairs pertaining to the welfare of the county and was held in the highest regard for his sterling worth. Of the Methodist Church he was a consistent and faithful member as was the first husband of Mrs. Hutton, and both the brothers were stanch Republicans in politics."
