1894 Graduation Photograph of George E. Hutchins; Haverhill High School, Haverhill, Massachusetts


1894 graduation photograph of George E. Hutchins, a student at Haverhill High School, Haverhill, Massachusetts.

The photograph was taken by the Waldon Smith studio of Boston, Massachusetts.



This photograph was found with those of five other Class of 1894 graduates of Haverhill High School.

The other students are Bertha Maude Charlesworth; Amy Gertrude Foss; Jessie Mabel Gale; Charles Howard Nichols or George Munroe Gage Nichols; and Lillian Mae Pettengill.  Click on the name for more information on that person.  
The 1894 graduation program appears at the end of this post.

From online research, hopefully correct: [corrections welcome!]

George E. Hutchins was born 31 May 1875 at Haverhill, Massachusetts, the son of Emileus and Elizabeth Jane (Yeaton) Hutchins, who were born at Cape Porpoise, Maine, and New Castle, New Hampshire, respectively.

George's paternal grandparents were Joseph "Skipper Joe" Hutchins and Catherine (Fletcher) Hutchins.  His maternal grandparents were William C. and Maria (White) Yeaton.

On 23 November 1898, George married Grace S. Trafton, who was born 13 February 1874 at York, Maine, the daughter of Benjamin F. and Julia A. (Young) Trafton, who had apparently moved their family from Maine to Haverhill, Massachusetts, at least for a while.

George E. and Grace S. (Trafton) Hutchins lived at Haverhill, Massachusetts, where they raised at least three sons, all born in the early 1900s.

The Censuses of Haverhill, Massachusetts, from 1900 to 1940 indicate that George worked successively as a civil engineer, a Haverhill alderman, civil engineer, and Haverhill assessor.  He was also a cartographer.  One of his 1909 maps of Haverhill, Massachusetts, is held in Special Collections at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.
