1786 Reverend McCloskey accepted brother Joseph's invitation to preach and began to preach at Milford. "Joseph Hutchinson's was quite a rendezvous for the weary itinerants, and being near the line between `East' and `West' Jersey, the preachers on the two charges would sometimes meet here.". "Robert Hutchinson, with three brothers, Ezekiel, Sylvester, and Aaron, all four of whom later became preachers, went over to Uncle Joseph's to `have the 8small-pox,' as they were accustomed to call it in `olden time'. While there they met with a number of traveling preachers. Ezekeil Cooper, J. M'Claskey ... and Robert Sparks ... among them. They became wonderfully attached to them; and their preaching and conversation made impressions which resulted in their conversion. During the year a class was organized ... among its members were Joseph Hutchinson and wife. This brother was very zealous and ... erected at Milford, almost entirely at his own expense, a house of worship for the despised band.". [11]

1786 William Hutchinson's son Aaron converted to Methodism and was immediately taken on the preaching circuit in West Jersey by M'Closkey. He was then told to return to preach at his Uncle Joseph's house. "It was a great cross to the youthful soldier. But a few months since he was converted; and no opportunities for study, ... And then to open his commission among his own kindred too. But he lifted his cross and stood up, and preached from Isa. ii. 3. They were all astonished at the marvelous manner in which God assisted the stripling. His mother, especially, wept profusely during the whole service.". [12]
