*When the land office was opened for "the new purchase," on the 3d of April, 
1769, there were many applications made for this location. In all of them it is called either old Muncy town, Shikellimy's town or Shikellimy's old town. It is referred to as a locality in hundreds of applications for land in the valley. Shikellimy's town was on the "Joseph Hutchinson" and "Michael Weyland " warrantee tracts, from  which the title can be readily traced to the present owner. Thousands of Indian darts were plowed up there, and once when blasting at the stone quarry a grave was uncovered in the solid rock, in which was found the skeleton of an Indian. — Linn's Annals of Buffalo Valley, page 3.

About Joseph's parents - When JOSEPH HUTCHISON was born in 1685, his father, DAVID, was 35 and his mother, AGNES, was 33. He had one son with Mary in 1740. He died in 1747 in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, at the age of 62.
