Description: Historical Note: The banking and commission firm of Ball, Hutchings, and Company was created in 1854 by the partners John Henry Hutchings, John Sealy, and George Ball. When the bank of McKinney and Williams closed, the firm's good will passed to Ball, Hutchings, and Company, which later came to be known as the Hutchings-Sealy National Bank. During the Civil War the firm moved to Houston, where the partners were active in importing arms and other war material, exporting cotton, and running the blockade on a large scale.
