Their Story:

Frank Hutton never married. I have been told he was a prospector and worked in the Goldfields in several capacities. A common story is that Frank would walk from the Goldfields to Capel to visit family. Later in life he worked on farms in the Capel area and lived on Goodwood Road on a property on the opposite side of the road from brother Thomas property.
