    John C. Hutcherson, who is one of the leading attorneys of Glasgow, Kentucky, and a descendant of early pioneers of the state, is a native Kentuckian, born in Barren county October 25, 1860, the son of Cyrus B. and Lou Ann (Burks) Hutcherson, who were also both natives of Kentucky, born in Green county in 1824, and in Barren county in 1828. respectively. After their marriage, which was solemnized in Barren countv about the year 1848, they settled on a farm in the northeastern part of the county, about thirteen miles from Glasgow, where they afterward made their home until their deaths, the mother dying in 1891 and the father surviving until 1906. They were members of the Methodist Episcopal church, South, and were among the best and most highly respected citizens of the county. The father was a farmer and trader and became well-to-do. He was considered and was in very truth one of the progressive and substantial men of his county until the war, which almost completely ruined his fortunes. He and his wife were the parents of four children, namely: William G., who resided on a part of the old homestead; Lizzie, who is unmarried and makes her home with her brother on the old farm; John C., the subject; and Lula B., who is a missionary in South America.


    John C. Hutcherson, the immediate subject of this review, was reared upon a farm and received his education in several institutions, —the Glasgow Normal School, The Southern Normal School and the business college at Bowling Green, Kentucky, graduating from the latter in 1885. Subsequently he engaged in teaching school for two years and at the same time read law. In the fall of 1887 he went to Bowling Green and pursued his law studies under Mitchell & Du Bose, attorneys of that place. In December of the following year he was admitted to the bar and soon afterward began the practice of his profession at Glasgow, continuing alone until 1889, when he went to Harlan Court House, Harlan county, and formed a partnership with Judge John R. Sampson. This partnership, however, bad been only of short duration when Mr. Hutcherson withdrew and removed to Middlesborough, Kentucky, resuming the practice of his profession at that place. On the incorporation of the town of Middlesborough into a city, in 1890, Mr. Hutcherson was elected city attorney and for two years served in that capacity. His second identification with Glasgow dates from the year 1893, and he resumed and continued his practice here until 1895, when he was elected county attorney, and served one term of four years. In 1903 Mr. Hutcherson formed a partnership with George T. Duff, of Glasgow, and has ever since that time continued in practice with him here.

    Mr. Hutcherson was married at Columbia, Adair county, Kentucky, July 17, 1889, his chosen lady being Miss Ida E. Lyon, who was born in Adair county April 26, 1861, the daughter of James D. and Mary F. (Jones) Lyon, of Adair county. To this union have been born seven children, namely: Fannie L.. Lyon B., John K., William R., James B., Ida E. and Cyrus B. Mr. and Mrs. Hutcherson are members of the Methodist Episcopal church, South, and the former is a member of the fraternity of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. He stands as one of the progressive and public-spirited citizens of the county and enjoys the respect and confidence of all who know him.
