Hutchinson was a resident of Mill Creek Township.
According to records, his first name was Ezekiel,
and his last name was spelled two different ways, as
both Hutcheson and Hutchinson. In 1811, Ezekiel
purchased 400 acres of land in the Mill Creek
Township. On this property, he opened a tavern and
hotel called the Golden Lamb. This establishment was
a resting point for travelers between Cincinnati and
Hamilton, Ohio. In 1817, Hutchinson had a new
neighbor who brought problems. His name was David
Cummins, who bought four acres of land and opened a
tannery on this property. Disputes started when
Cummins bought rights to water on Hutchinson’s
property. The rights gave Cummins the amount of
water that could pass through eight three-quarter
inch holes in a piece of wood. During a hot summer
the holes were plugged, disputes erupted and the two
went to court. Hutchinson had to pay 9,000 in
damages, and Cummins paid 4,000 in damages. With the
cost, Hutchinson had to sell the land Jacob Hoffner
in 1936. With the land Hoffner created “One of the
finest estates in the country."
