  1. I recently received a George T. Hussey Special Message Token and I was trying to learn more about George T. Hussey. I did learn from your short article he did retire in 1875 but I have not been able to learn when he was born or died. I am a retired physician and I love to do research but I have reached a dead end and I was hoping you might be able to help me.

      Hi Michael –

      Thank you for your enquiry. Going back to my research notes, “George Tuttle Hussey was born February 27, 1812, the posthumous son of George Hussey II (d. 1811).” He “died July 3, 1890, aged 78, and was survived by his wife, Mary Jane Alexander, and two children, Mary Hussey Blair and George Alexander Hussey.” I do not have in my notes where he was born, nor where he died.

      Hope this helps.

      Kind regards,

      Aaron Packard
