Query: John Hutchens, Wayne County

               Trying to find out who the parents were of John Hutchens, who was born in Surry County, NC, on Dec. 20, 1816, and moved to Wayne County, IN, at the age of 3 with his parents.  John lived in Wayne County from 1820 and was educated there.  John was from a Quaker family. 
                He married Nancy Brown on Oct. 5, 1838; she was also a native of NC, but was living in Ohio. They moved to Andrew County, MO, in 1841 and improved a farm.  Then in 1854 he and Nancy moved to the Glenwood area in Mills County, IA. They farmed 170 acres there.
                Nancy died Nov. 16, 1857, and John married Eliza Brower. There were 13 children as a result of these two marriages.  One son David, son of Nancy and John, was my wife's great-grandfather. 
Thank in advance for any help you can provide.
