Descendants of Ward Hudson Generation No. 1 1. WARD HUDSON (RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1735 in Virginia, and died 1793 in Lunenberg Co., Virginia. He married MARTHA HUDSON 8 August 1761 in Amelia Co., Va. She died in Lunenberg Co., Virginia. Notes for WARD HUDSON: Deed Bk 8, page 80...Lunenburg county, VA. "This indenture made 9 Dec 1763 by Robert Melon of the Province of North Carolina to Ward Hudson of Nottoway Parish in Amelia Co. for the sum of (Pound sign) 53, 530 acres of land lying in Lunenburg Co. bounded & beg'g at a corner of Edward Hatchett on Irby's branch & adj. lands of Crymes, Edmonds, Ingrams, Gafford & Roberts.

EDWARD HARDING, 14 December 1793, Lunenberg Co., Virginia. Notes for EDWARD HARDING: There is a STRONG chance that this man is the son of Thomas Harding and Phoeby Beasley. vii. NANCY HUDSON, m. (UNKNOWN) EDWARDS. 6. viii. LAMECK HUDSON, b. 22 September 1780, ?Lunenberg County? Virginia; d. 22 October 1844, Ebemezerl, Wilcox County, Alabama. Generation No. 2 2. JOHN HUDSON (WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born 1762 in Virginia, and died 1790 in Lunenberg Co., Va. He married MARY BEASLEY 1781 in Lunenberg Co., Va, daughter of ROBERT BEASLEY and BETSEY WILLINGHAM/WINNINGHAM. She was born Abt. 1765 in Lunenberg Co., Va, and died Aft. 1830 in Oglethorpe County, Georgia. Notes for JOHN HUDSON: Some say that John was a Private in the Rev. War., that due to the hardships he suffered, he died young. It is known he died in 1790, in Lunenberg Co., Va. leaving a wife, Mary, and four children, Frederick, Rolin/Rowland/Robert, Mason Ward, and Elizabeth. The children are named in his will, of which I have a copy. John married Mary Beasley, 1781, in Lunenberg Co., Va. Years later, in Noxubee County, Ms., court records will prove the relationship between he and his great grandchildren, children of John Hudson and Elizabeth Beasley. Court records address the estate of John Hudson in Lunenberg Co., Virginia. 7, Lunenberg county, VA: Recorded in Oglethorpe county, Georgia and Lunenberg county, VA..... Oglethorpe co. in the State of Georgia...Know all men...John Hudson late of Lunenburg Co. VA dec'd by his last will 15 June 1790 did unto his wife, Mary Hudson, now Mary Ward...during her natural life grant a tract of land lying in Lunenburg county on the waters of Couches Creed containing 200 a adj. Colo. Edward Jordan, Shadrack Clark, & at the death of said Mary Hudson, now Ward, it to be equally between his 4 children, Frederick, Robert, Ward & Betsy Hudson all now having reached lawful age & wishing to dispose of our rights to the aforesaid land which will arrive to us at the death of Mary we the said Frederick, Robert, Ward Hudson & Nathaniel H. Smith in right of my wife, Elizabeth Smith formerly Elizabeth Hudson appoint Frederick Hudson Power of Attorney to convey our rights & interest in & to the aforesaid land in fee simple. 28 Nov 1815 Wit: Joseph Vinson Signed Robert Hutson Ward Hutson Nathaniel H. Smith Power of Atty certified before Joseph Vinson, Esq. JP in Oglethorpe Co. Ga 28 Nov 1815... Received in Lunenburg Co. 23 Dec 1815 by William H. Taylor [One might note that the wording indicates that at this point in time, the mother was still alive. The HFA shows her dying in 1815, based upon this "land sale."] The fact that the mother is living next door to son, Ward Hutson, in the 1830 Oglethorpe county, GA. census proves that she did not die in 1815. Notes for MARY BEASLEY: Mary is believed to be a daughter of Robert and Betty (Willingham) Beasley. If this proves to be true, she would also be a sister to William Beasley who married (possibly 2nd) Nancy English. She married 19 years after the named Robert and Betty married, in the same county and State. Other Willingham researchers show her as a daughter. [I lack positive proof....ear] Widowed in 1790, she remarried 1793. Her second husband, Seth Ward, was a brother to Samuel Ward who had married Edith Hudson, a sister to Mary's deceased husband. Seth is believed to also be a "cousin" of John Hudson, as John's grandmother is reportedly a Ward. Mary and Seth moved with the four children by John Hudson to Oglethorpe County, at least it was there in 1800 that Seth is shown as guardian of the two oldest sons, Frederick and Roland/Rowland Hudson. Then in Jan. of 1802, he is shown as guardian of Ward Hudson,(named as Mason Ward Hudson in will), orphan of John Hudson. John Beasley is shown as surety for that action, which makes the question, was this man, John Beasley, a brother of Mary? Interestingly enough, either thru omission, or non concern, no guardianship has been "reported" for the daughter, Elizabeth, who ultimately married Nathaniel Harrison Smith. HFA records indicate Mary died in 1815. This is based upon a land sale in Virginia of John's lands?....this is a false belief. The 1830 census of Oglethorpe County, Georgia show Mary Ward living next door to Ward Hudson, actually he is listed as "Hutson", with her age being "under 70". Her husband, Seth Ward, had died in 1826. His will in Oglethorpe Co., Ga. named John Hudson, son of Frederich Hudson, as executor. Beasely and Ward surnames in Lunenberg Co., Va, in late 1790s are in association in court records of that County. Robert Beasley is the name that appears on several Ward documents. Also, on Ward Hudson's will, the name of Sam Ward appears. Back then, all these families were already intertwined. Children of JOHN HUDSON and MARY BEASLEY are: 7. i. FREDERICK HUDSON, b. 1783, Lunenberg Co., Va; d. 1841, Noxubee Co., Ms. ii. ROLIN/ROWLAND HUDSON, b. 1784, Lunenberg Co., Virginia; m. CANDIS. Notes for ROLIN/ROWLAND HUDSON: ************** Somewhere, I picked up that this man was to have had some 14 children?? There is a will on file, I don't have a copy in Barnwell county, S.C......and, I did locate a notation in the War of 1812 pensions (I think it was pensions, at least it was dealing with the War of 1812......) That was shown as: ROLEN HUTSON 2 REG'T (2 BATTALION, OSWALD'S,) SOUTH CAROLINA STATE TROOPS. Again, this need much work. [This is the man the HFA shows as a brother.] ************ November 1999......It is my belief that this family is the incorrect tie from this name on down.....I am going to move this family out of this line up, and set them up "on their own" locate the "John Hudson, b. 1800" you need to go to the index. [Again, the "now detached family" came from records submited to the HFA, and until I can personally prove them, I have them seperated. Records indicate to me that the person over in S.C., Rolen Hutson, is in fact a seperate individual, not this Robert Hutson. Somewhere in my notes, I have questioned the ability to have married and had two children and still be under "guardianship" of Seth Ward, so in my mind, the dates and events regulated to the S.C. person just do not fit.] *********** 1815, there is a land sale in Lunenberg county, VA. of the land that John Hudson, father of "the correct" Robert/Rowlin/Rolin/Robin Hutson/Hudson, had left to his wife, Mary Hudson (now Ward) that document, Robert Hutson had requested that his brother, Frederick act as attorney on his behalf, as did the other two siblings, Ward Hudson, and "Nathaniel Smith, in right of my wife, Elizabeth." The document was originated in Ogelethorpe county, GA., and filed in both States. Also recorded in Lunenberg County, VA. is the record of the wives signing away their dowrey rights...the names of the wives stated: Candes, wife of Robert, Lucy, wife of Frederick, Jane, wife of Ward. In these documents, the surname is spelled both HUTSON and HUDSON. Candes is shown signing her dowery rights in Jasper County, GA. in 1817. The 1820 census of Jasper County, GA. shows: Page 188, line 309... Robert Hutson..300010-0001 This equates to: three males under the age of 10, one male25-44, and one female 25-40. Now, to "find" the rest of the story!! More About ROLIN/ROWLAND HUDSON: Fact 1: notes state that 1sr wife was Candes, 2nd wife, Sarah, left 14 children 8. iii. MASON WARD HUDSON, b. 22 February 1787, Lunenberg Co., Va; d. 6 September 1860, Monroe/Clay Counties, Missippi. iv. ELIZABETH HUDSON, b. 23 March 1789, Lunenberg county, VA; d. 23 June 1861, Stephens, Oglethorpe GA; m. NATHANIAL HARRISON SMITH, 24 November 1808, Greene county, Georgia; b. 1781, Dinsiddie Co., Va; d. 28 January 1836, Stephens, Oglethorpe GA. Notes for ELIZABETH HUDSON: Marriage is shown as Nathaniel Smith to Elizabeth Hutson, in DAR book for marriages in Oglethorpe and Greene counties, GA. Contact with Feb. 2001 gave me the dates of birth and death as well as burial information. This info. came from a FTM Vol13, #406. Both are buried in Smith/Sanders Famly Cemetery on Salem road, near Stephens, GA. 3. ROLIN/ROWLAND HUDSON (WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1765 in Virginia, and died 1810 in Oglethorpe Co. Ga. He married DOSHA HARDING 14 January 1806 in Lunenberg Co., Virginia. She was born in Virginia, and died in ?Georgia?. Notes for ROLIN/ROWLAND HUDSON: From the Oglethorpe Co., Ga. Minutes Court of Ordinary, 1813-1830 we find the following, without a date as to when recorded: "Ordered that Josheph Hubbard be & he is hereby appointed quardian for Robert Hudson & Ward Hudson orphans & minors of Roland Hudson dec'd. & Thomas Moody & Martin J. Davenport & Jacob Wise came into Court & entered theirselves in the sum of six thousand dollars for the faithfull performance of the above trust." (The above was transcribed by myself [ear] from a photocopy sent from Ray Brown, of Ga. who is a descendent of Dosha Harding Hudson Hubbard. Jan. 1999) Another piece, also undated.... "On the petition of Daniel Dupree agent & Joseph Hubbard in wright of his wife administrator of the estate of Roland Hudson dec'd Stating to the court now seting their verifibility (?) & con___ses of an order of court to divide the negro property among the several distributees in interest in said estate & the court percieving the ______ for such an order in order to make such division--Direct that the prayor of the petitionors _____ in terms of ________. & Geo (?Hedspeth), P Compton, Saml Ward, Wm M Stokes, John Moody, Phil Burford & Thos Duke, Esq. is appointed to make said Division." [Note that the above states "several distributees".....does this indicate other children, or include the widow?][I would vote for "include the widow"] Now, we have a the Inventory of the negroes belonging to the minors of Roland Hudson dec'd, also the hire of said negroes by the guardian, Dec. 29th, 1814...Rec'd of Daniel Dupree, agent for Dosha Hudson, late Dosha Hubbard adminstratix of Roland Hudson, dec'd for Robert Hudson...and then, for Ward Hudson. Recorded 10th of May 1815. Children of ROLIN/ROWLAND HUDSON and DOSHA HARDING are: i. ROBERT HUDSON, b. Abt. 1807. Notes for ROBERT HUDSON: Only because his name appears "first" in the court records did I show Robert Hutson/Hudson as being the first born. As his mother remarried in 1811 in Oglethorpe County, Ga., we can assume that his father had died possibly in 1810. As the parents married in 1806 in Lunenberg County, Va., neither of the children were very old when their father died. There is a marriage record for Robert Hudson and Nacy Ward, Nov 4, 1834 in Oglethorpe County, Ga.If this is the correct man, then he may have been the male listed in the 1830 census in the household of Joseph Hubbard, his step-father. As there is a tie amongst the Ward family and this line of Hudson, it makes sense that he would have married a cousin. At this writing, April, 1999, these are considered only clues, as this is not yet proven. Nor is the marriage of the brother, Ward Hudson/Hutson shown under his name. Another entry in the marriage books of Oglethorpe County, Ga. for a Robert Hudson has him marrying in December 19, 1827, Lucinda Beadles Stewart. Again, if this is the man, then this one would have been his first marriage?? (check for a son of the other Ward Hudson...) ************ Book #2 1815-1830 Oglethorpe Co.

Notes for WARD HUDSON: Listed as Ward Hutson on the 1830 Oglethorpe County, Ga. census, shown to be between the age of 20-29, with a wife, age 15-19. Some distance away was Joseph Hubbard:0001001-00001 which indicates one male between the age of 15-19, one male age 40-49, and one female, age 20-29. Doshia married in 1806 Roland Hudson, so it is apparent that she is not listed here. She married Joseph Hubbard in 1811, Oglethorpe County, Ga. after Roland had died. A marriage record of a Ward Hudson and Demaris Goolsby is recorded to have taken place 10 Dec. 1828. It is a good bet that this will be this Ward Hudson, son of Roland Hudson and Doshia Harding. Late 1998, in contact with Ray E. Brown of Georgia...he thought Doshia was a child of Rolin Hudson, and sent me what he had copied from the records of Oglethorpe Co., Ga. Keep in mind that records exist on both Frederick and Ward Hutson/Hudson showing both spellings. Our subject, this Ward, will be a 1st cousin to Frederick and (Mason) Ward, sons of John Hudson of Lunenberg Co., Va. ********** Inventories and Returns Book, Oglethorpe County, Ga.: 1815......Ward hudson's negroes Big Nancy & Jacob to Henry Allen.........$47 Paschal to "Do "Do....................... 10 Caroline to Joseph Hubbard for her "expeninses" Signed, Joseph Hubbard Guardain and then......

RICHARD (V) HUDSON (WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born in Virginia, and died 1841 in Wilcox Co., Ala. He married SUSANNAH PARROTT 1797. Notes for RICHARD (V) HUDSON: Although HFA records show this Richard Hudson to have died in Ga. in 1841, I believe he will be found to have died in the same county as his brother, Lameck Hudson, which was Wilcox Co., Alabama. Will Book 2, Wilcox Co., Alabama, pg 216.......Richard Hudson died intestate in Wilcox Co., Rowland W. Hudson appt. administrator...5 Jul 1841.

Longmire, Sr. and Henrietta Maria Belcher. Generation No. 3 7. FREDERICK HUDSON (JOHN7, WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born 1783 in Lunenberg Co., Va, and died 1841 in Noxubee Co., Ms (Source: Court records show Frederick active June of 1841.). He married LUCY GREER Bef. 1805 in Greene/Oglethorpe Co., Ga, daughter of WILLIAM GREER and JANE HAYNES. She was born 14 February 1785 in Georgia. 1800, Frederick and his brother, Roland/Rowland, were appointed a guardian in Oglethorpe Co., Georgia, Seth Ward, husband of their mother. (Mary Beasley Hudson married Seth in 1793, after their father had died in 1790.) First found on tax rolls 1805, Greene Co., Georgia. Most records of Fredrick and Lucy married life are unavailable. However, a Warranty Deed which is recorded in Greene Co., Ga. states the following: Abram, Henry and William Greer, Jr., of County of Greene in consideration of the good will we bear our sister, Lucy Hudson, freely give unto Frederick Hudson and Lucy, his wife, of Greene County, lawful parts and rights as heirs of William Greer's, Sr., (deceased) lately of Greene County, Georgia 122 acres on waters of Fisher's Creek on line of Academy land thence south adjoin the heirs of Jonas Greer (deceased) being part of the tract of land held and owned by the said William Greer Sr. deceased at the time of his decease, July 30, 1814. Witness: Parmenas Haynes Signed: Abraham Greer Absolum Autry Henry Greer William Greer William Greer Recorded Oct. 18, 1814 Family history states that 1815, he and his siblings sold their deceased father's land in Lunenberg Co., Va., and this leads to the speculation that Mary had died. However, Mary Ward (Mary Beasley Hudson Ward) will be found living next door to Ward Hudson (Mason Ward Hudson) in Oglethorpe County in the 1830 census. There is an Indenture signed by Frederick Hudson in Green Co., Ga. "for the consideration of the sum of four hundred and thirty dollars to him in hand" land lying in Oglethorpe Co., on waters of Sandy Creek....containing 150 acres, "to have and to hold..." recorded April 8, 1817. He sold to Barnabus Arthur. Census Records of Greene County, Georgia for 1820 show that in Frederick Hudson's household were two boys, over 10 yr and under 16, and one man, over 26 yr and under 45, one girl under 10 years, and one woman,over 26 and under 45. Slaves were recorded as being numbered ten, three males under 14, two males under 20, one female under 14, two females under 20, one female under 45, and one female over 45. The 1828 will of Seth Ward names "John Hudson, son of Frederick Hudson, of Oglethorpe Co.", as co-administrator of his estate. By the summer of 1827, Frederick is guardian of one, if not all, of his sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Mary Greer Ragan and Jerimiah Ragan's, daughters. As Mary had died late 1826 and Jerimiah died early 1827. These records are in Greene Co., Georgia. 1830 census of Greene Co. Ga. shows that in the household of Frederick there was one male 20-30, one male 50-60, two females 10-15, one female 15-20, and one female 40-50. Seventeen slaves are listed. (By this time both John and Mary have married are living in their own homes. It is believed that the extra females shown are the nieces of Lucy, orphans of Mary and Jerimiah Ragan.) Court Records of Noxubee Co., Mississippi indicate that Frederick was there as early as April 1837 where he was appointed guardian of Lucy Sophrona Ragan, the youngest dau. of Mary and Jerimiah. Land records show purchase of land in 1838, located R14 T17, sec. 19 and 30, purchased from the Robertson family. Noxubee Co., Ms. court records also indicate that Frederick was still alive as late as June, 1841. His estate was introduced for Probate in Jan. 1842, with his son, John as administrator. Frederick was involved in the estate of a "Scott", an unknown as of this writing, (June,1997). Mention is made in court records of Nox. Co., Ms. ( In the 1840 census, a J.B. Scott is shown next door to John Hudson.....) Although in a book, Tombstone Inscriptions of Noxubee County, it is shown that Frederick died in 1838, this is in error. He is said to be buried in the Hudson Family Cemetery, on the Hudson Plantation, in Shuqualak, Mississippi. Having visited the cemetery, I found no tombstone. It is said that many tombstones are missing from this cemetery. Several dates written in that same book are known to be in error. It is not known from where the information was taken. One should also remember that Shuqualak did not exist until around 1855. Although the families lived in that area that is now known as Shuqualak, land records show that Frederick purchased some distance north, northwest of his son, John Hudson, who purchased the land where the Hudson Family Cemetery is located, T13R17, sec. 21. Also, remember, Lucy S. Ragan, his charge, is recorded to have purchased from a store in what is now Gohlson, just to the west of now Shuqualak. She later married H.O. Beasley, who was living in Parkesville. [Henry Oscar Beasley, younger brother of Elizabeth, wife of John Hudson.] DB 24, page 8 This indenture made 21 Dec 1815 by Frederick Hudson for himself & as attorney in fact for Robert Hudson, Ward Hudson & Nathaniel Smith who intermarried with Betsy Hudson to Leonard Crymes of Lunenburg Co. for the sum of $200.00...convey 200 acres of land lying in Lunenbrug County on the waters of Couches Creek, it being the same land where on John Hudson dec'd...their father died....containing 200 acres bounded on the North by lands of Labon Coleman, East by legatees of John Smith dec'd, South by Edward Jordan & West by said Leonard Crymes. Signed: Frederick Hudson for myself & as Atty for Robert Hudson Ward Hudson Nathaniel Smith Ack: 23 Dec. 1815 & ordered recorded.... Notes for LUCY GREER: From two sides of this family, written many years ago, it is stated that Lucy Greer Hudson was born in Georgia. Then, the death location is in debate, as one side says she died in Georgia, the other, in Mississippi. No mention of Lucy in court records of Noxubee County, Ms. have been located. Her name is not on the land records of Frederick Hudson, of 1838, and his Probated estate was divided between three children, John Hudson, William Hudson's estate, and William Bird in right of his wife, Mary, in 1841. The marriage is acknowledged in a document where Lucy's brothers give to their sister land: Warranty Deed, located in Greene Co., Ga.

MASON WARD HUDSON (JOHN7, WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born 22 February 1787 in Lunenberg Co., Va, and died 6 September 1860 in Monroe/Clay Counties, Missippi. He married JANE C. HAYNES 19 February 1805 in Greene Co., Georgia, daughter of HENRY HAYNES and SARAH GREER. She was born 25 August 1785, and died 28 June 1862 in Monroe/Clay Counties, Missippi. The following was located in a book of exerts from GA. records: "Hudson, Ward, minor orph of John decd, Seth Ward apptd gdn, John Beasley sur. 1/19/1802 Oglethorpe Co. <Ga> Minutes of Inferior Court."

Ward and his wife, Jane/Jennie, are buried in what is now Clay County Ms. (it was in Monroe County). The Hudson family cemetery is about 30 yards south of the Clay/Monroe county line and about 100 yards west of the Derricot road which is along the Tom Bigbee river. Dr. Henry Haynes Hudson came to Texas in about 1865 and died soon after, in Colmesneil, Tx. His son, Forrest Henry Hudson moved to South Texas and is buried in the Three Rivers cemetery. His son, Fred Warren Hudson died recently (now 1998) and is also buried in the Three Rivers cemetery. ********** 1830 census of Oglethorpe County, Georgia.....Ward Hutson 2121001-0111001 and next door: Mary Ward....this has to be his mother, Mary Beasley Hudson Ward. Age is "under 70", (it is believed she was born abt. 1765?) Although HFA shows an Elizabeth Hudson who married George L. English in 1825 as dau. of Frederick Hudson, it will be found that she is actually a dau. of Ward Hudson and Jennie/Jimmie/Jane Haynes. This Elizabeth signed with her siblings when they deeded land to their mother. (July 1998)....from Juanita Donaldson.....rec'd family group sheets on Ward Hudson and information stating she had found the following in The Georgia Genealogical Magazine, Winter, 1983, page 43: #206....Fredrick, Robert [Rolin], Ward and Betsy Hutson, (orphans) Interestingly enough, I had just rec'd that same info thru email stating that they rec'd one draw. ****************************************** 1 Oct 1860...Monroe County, Ms....the children of Ward Hudson executed a deed to their mother, Jane C.

Gideon **************************** *possibly a son of another daughter, one who also married English. 1830, Census of Oglethorpe Co., Ga 2121001-0111001 Notes for JANE C. HAYNES: This one is somewhat confusing. Marriage records have been recorded with the name of "Jimmie", "Jennie", etc......One descendent has her name as Jane C. Haynes, 25 Aug 1785, d. 28 June 1862, in Monroe/Clay Counties, Ms. She is buried in Clay County, as is her husband, Ward Hudson. Another descendent has her name as Irene Jane Haynes, b. 28 Aug 1788, d. 17 June 1862. At this time, July, 1998, I do not have a "correct" answer...(ear) Children of MASON HUDSON and JANE HAYNES are: i. ELIZABETH HUDSON, b. Abt. 1807, Oglethorpe county, GA; m. GEORGE LEWIS ENGLISH, 31 October 1826, Greene Co., Georgia; b. Abt. 1790. Although HFA has this Elizabeth Hudson as a dau. of Frederick Hudson, she is not his daughter. Ward Hudson lived adjoining parcel to Parmenas English in Oglethorpe Co., Ga. Parmenas is the father of this George Lewis English. ******** Aug. Possible ggggrandmother!! Has writings of her own grandmother who named Elizabeth as being a daughter a Ward Hudson and that his mother was "the widow Hudson". Thru another, I have George L. English in the Chickasaw county Ms 1850 census: George L English, age 60, Farmer, b. in GA Elizabeth, age 43, b.

HUDSON: Found in the household of Nancy (English) Beasley on the census of 1850 in Noxubee County, Ms. with the spelling of surname as Hutson, age 30, b. Ga. also in her household was Henry Ann Hutson (Hudson), her grandson, son of her deceased daughter, Sarah Annie Beasley Hudson. The 1860 census of Noxubee County shows in Household # 876/856 R. J. Hudson, age 40, Farmer, B. in Ms. He is the last entry on the page, and the next page continues with: Household #877/857, Martha Hudson, age 42, b. Ga. with Ann E. Haynes, age 18, b. Ms. and John English, age 13, b. Ms. in her house. [Could this John English be a nephew of Robert J. Hutson?] In the 1870 census, in Household # 27/28 is Robert J. Hudson, age 50, b. Ga. with Martha Hudson, age 50, b. Ga., and then a Virginia Holes, age 13, b. Ms. is in School. In 1860 and 1870, the residence is in/near Summerville, which was to become Gohlson.

More About DICEY WARD: Burial: Towaliga Baptist Church Cemetary Notes for DR YELVERTON THAXTON: Sept 2, 2000.......after reading this man's name in several documents over the course of my search/research, I now find that he was "related"...although I haven't yet pinpointed how this WARD family further back ties into us. Although some believe that Martha WARD married Richard Hudson IV, we haven't found her family as of yet. Yelverton Thaxton will be found in Oglethorpe and Greene counties, GA during the period that Frederick Hudson was selling some of his land, as Yelverton was a witness to some of the actions. This Dicey Ward's mother, Yelverton's wife's mother, was Edith Hudson, sister to John Hudson, who died 1790 in Lunenburg county, VA. therefore, this Dicey Ward Thaxton would be a 1st cousin to our Frederick Hudson! Just remember to watch who the witnesses are on documents...... ****************** Children of DICEY WARD and YELVERTON THAXTON are: 26. i. CHARLES CLAY9 THAXTON, b. 1808, Georgia; d.

She was born 10 November 1807 in Georgia, and died 19 November 1870 in Noxubee Co., Ms. 1830, Census of ?Greene Co., Ga? 100 010-100 01 1850, Census of Noxubee Co. lists only four children at home, Wm. , John H., Oscar F., and Hosia W. Odd, but the 1850 census of Noxubee county, Ms does show Elizabeth in the census, it also notes that William Beasley Hudson "had married with-in the year", leading one to believe that perhaps on the day the census was recorded he was not actually living in her household, but being reported to have been there the "official day" of the census. The date the information was recorded was 18th of October, 1850. No mention of a wife for W.B. Hudson is given on the census....wonder where he was when this was given, or, where he married...his first wife's name was Jane Elizabeth English, now, to find which English family. [note made Nov. 1999...I had not realized the notation was on the census until today?] 1850 Noxubee county, Ms..... Household # 665/665 Elizabeth Hudson, age 52, b. Geo William Hudson, age 21, b.

Geo [Although it has been proven that this family could read and write, the census taker did get that last name "wrong"...Osia Cincinatus Ward the correct name. Also, Elizabeth remarried in 1850. Her marriage is recorded in the marriage license books of Noxubee county, Ms. She married Isaac Hudson. One side of the family states that Elizabeth married "John's cousin, Oscar." However, I think that maybe they got that named mixed up? Family lore has it that Elizabeth and Isaac did not stay married, that they separated....and that he was the grandfather of "Hudson Strode". [Hudson Strode was a professor at the University of Alabama.] Elizabeth and Isaac Hudson are not found in the 1860 census of Noxubee county. Elizabeth is found in the 1870 census. Where did they go for a short period of time? [Did they go to Georgia? A Captain Isaac Hudson, of Georgia, is reported to be the grandfather of Hudson Strode, who was born in Illinois.

She married WILLIAM "BILLIE" BYRD/BIRD 6 June 1825 in Greene Co., Georgia. He was born Abt. 1801 (Source: 1850 Census, Noxubee Co., Ms). Court records granted equal distribution of slaves to William Bird in right of his wife, Mary, from the estate of Frederick Hudson. Highly suspected that another daughter existed...Lucy S. Bird married John Wingo. The name Lucy Sophrona would be a family name, that of a cousin. No proof to this thought, but it is very possible.....John Wingo was present and purchased at Hudson estate sales. Notes for WILLIAM "BILLIE" BYRD/BIRD: Marriage records, Greene Co., Georgia.....June 6, 1825, William Byrd married Mary Hudson. 1842, William Bird, in right of wife, Mary, inherited equal 1/3 share of slaves of estate of Frederick Hudson, Noxubee Co., Ms. William Byrd married Mary Reynolds, 28 Jan 1847, in Noxubee Co., Ms....and in 1848 went to court to gain guardianship of his own children. 1850 census of Noxubee Co., Ms gives his name as Billy Bird, age 49, born in Ga.

WILLIAM HUDSON (MASON WARD8, JOHN7, WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born 1814, and died 6 September 1860 in Monroe County, Mississippi. He married NANCY SUE COLLIER 26 October 1835 in Oglethorpe County, Georgia. Malcolm Hudson made notes that this is the line of Joel Robertson. There seems to be a problem here. If he died in Sept. of 1860, how did he sign the deed in Oct. of 1860? Unless he had signed prior to that date, and the others signed, then it was recorded on that date??

He married (2) ELIZABETH Abt. 1856. She was born Abt. 1824 in Mississippi. Found in the 1850 census in Chickasaw Co., Mississippi, John Hudson and his family lived next door to William Hudson, believed to be his brother. Chickasaw County is a neighboring county to Monroe County, where Ward Hudson and his family is listed. The 1870 census of Prairie Township, St. Charles, Arkansas County, Arkansas shows a John Hudson, believed to be this John Hudson, living near his brother, Beasley Ward Hudson. From Philip Hudson, I have learned that "John" was married twice. In the 1870 census is a completely "different" family than found in the 1850 census, this may be a solid explanation?

WILLIAM BEASLEY HUDSON (JOHN9, FREDERICK8, JOHN7, WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3,RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born 10 June 1829 in Oglethorpe County, Georgia, and died 19 April 1877 in Shuqualak, Noxubee County, Mississippi. He married (1) JANE ELIZABETH ENGLISH Abt. 1850. She was born 16 October 1829 in ?Georgia?, and died 27 January 1852 in Shuqualak, Noxubee County, Ms. He married (2) SARAH ELIZA WATSON 23 November 1854 in unknown, daughter of CHARLES WATSON and MARTHA RUSSELL. She was born 14 January 1833 in Alabama, and died 24 April 1872 in Shuqualak, Noxubee County, Mississippi. He married (3) FRANCES E. LAGRONE 16 February 1873 in Noxubee county, Mississippi. He married (4) CYNTHIA B. GARNER 14 February 1877 in Carroll County, MS. I find it odd that our bible records show that W.B. Hudson's first wife, Elizabeth English, died, in 1850.....when the Tombstone Inscription book from Noxubee Co., Ms show that she died 27 Jan 1852......also, family history states she died one short year after her marriage? Nov. 1999.....Just noticed that William B. Hudson is shown in the household of his mother, Elizabeth, aged 21 on the 1850 census. Although recorded in the month of Oct., the census "official date" was sometime earlier in the year. It is possible that he was not actually living there at that time, that he was already married, living someplace away? We have yet to discover where he married his first wife, Jane Elizabeth English, nor have we discovered her parentage. (It was "noted" by a check mark that he was "married within the year") Am beginning to lean toward possible parents being Parmenas English and wife. Parmenas English, there was two of them: One, a brother to Henry English, who was father of Nancy English Beasley, the other, a nephew (I think, I can't remember right now, will have to look to be positive.] of the older Parmenas. Remember, this family has a history of marrying cousins. The book of Tombstone Inscriptions for Noxubee county show a wrong date for the death of William B. Hudson, it shows April 24, 1872, which was the date for Sarah Watson who died at the birth of my grandfather, Isaac L. Hudson on that date. 16 October 1850, 1st married Jane Eliz. English per bible records November 1850, Wife, Jane Eliz. English, died per bible records 23 November 1854, 2nd married Sarah E. Watson, mother of his children 24 April 1872, Sarah died in childbirth of I.L. Hudson 16 February 1873, 3rd married Francis E. children 14 February 1877, 4th married Cynthia B. children More About JANE ELIZABETH ENGLISH: buried Hudson Plantation, Shuqualak, Ms some believe this to be a dau. of Parmenas English and Sarah Haynes?

He married LOUISIANA ELLIOT 24 August 1851 in Noxubee Co., Ms, daughter of TAVENOR ELLIOT. Original court records viewed in Noxubee County, Mississippi give the full name as Frederick Hudson Bird when his father received guardianship of his own children after the death of their mother. The guardianship was 1848, however the father had married in 1846....this induces the theory that Mary Hudson Byrd/Bird had died 1845-46. Marriage records of 1851 show the name as Frederick H. Bird. ************ April, 2001......... located a query on GenForum dated 1999.......has this family.

From grandson, John Ellis Hudson of Columbus, Ms., we find that "Captain Jack" moved his family to Ethlesville, Alabama, a short distance from the State line, not too far from Columbus, Ms. Captain Jack was a colorful character, to say the least. He worked for a while in Shuqualak for the Nunn company, but is remembered for delivering mail to the rail station/train as it came thru the community of Ethlesville. Apparently he became an alcoholic with a "mean streak" and is mentioned as the reason the two brothers, Charles Gibson, and Isaac Lafayette, left Shuqualak for Hill county, Texas in 1888. On a knoll, in Ethlesville is a church with a cemetery. Here you will find both Captain Jack and his wife, and several other members of her family buried. At one time, Robert J. Hudson (named after Robert J. Hudson, son of Ward Hudson) and his family lived across the road from the church. Robert's widow, Betty, sold the home place and moved into Mississippi.

ISAAC LAFAYETTE HUDSON (WILLIAM BEASLEY10, JOHN9, FREDERICK8, JOHN7, WARD6, RICHARD5, RICHARD4, RICHARD3, RICHARD2, WILLIAM1) was born 24 April 1872 in Shuqualak, Noxubee County, Mississippi, and died 8 March 1944 in Knox City, Knox County, Texas. He married CARRIE ELIZABETH PATE 28 November 1898 in Hill Co. Texas, daughter of WILLIAM PATE and FRANCES THOMPSON. {Mrs. Hughes} She was born 1 September 1879 in Goodwater, Coosa Co., Ala, and died 3 October 1948 in Knox City, Knox Co., Texas. Ike Hudson, age 16, and his brother, Charlie, age 18, left Shuqualak, Noxubee County, Mississippi in 1888 for Hill County, Texas. It is told that the reason for their leaving was that their brother, Jack Caleb, was mean to them. Their mother died at Ike's birth, and their father died when Ike was seven years old. The census of 1880 shows them in the household along with their siblings, and Jack as the head of house. It is told that a Negroe family stayed with them after the Civil War to care for the children. One story is that upon returning to visit about 1925, as Ike neared the doorway of a house on the old family farm, a Negroe woman came running out, shouting "My baby, my baby, my baby's come home!!" This was told by Ike's youngest daughter who had accompanied him on that trip. Not having located any court records, it is also told that both Ike and his brother, Charlie gave their shares of the farm to their sister, who at the time had become a widow, with a child to raise. Another story is that upon landing at the train station in Hill County, Ike and Charlie had ten cents between them. They spent it on a Coke while waiting to be picked up. It is believed that they came to Hill Co. to live and work with/for a cousin, Henry Greer. As of this writing, which Henry Greer this is to have been has not been discovered. Ike's oldest son, Ike, Jr. relates that they actually went to work for someone else. The brothers met and ultimately married sisters, Charlie married Mattie Pate, and Ike married married Carrie Pate. Visiting the family farm in 1995 and 1996, I walked into the family cemetery, located in sec. 21, T13 R17, Noxubee County, Mississippi, just about a mile south of Shuqualak. The ground surrounding the cemetery is a farmed field. Nearby, on another piece of ground, in sec. 20, which is recorded to have been a part of the Hudson lands, is a family who owns their own land, and their name is Hudson. This family is a black family. As I was with others who did not wish to stop in the rain, I did not investigate as to who they really were. I would like to believe that they were the family that helped raised my grandfather. 1917 found Ike and his family moving to Gillespie Community in Knox County, Texas. He bought the Rawlings' farm, about 1 1/2 miles SE of the Gillespie Baptist Chruch and 1 mile west of the Thorp Methodist Church. Due to the drought, in 1918, Ike and four of his children went back to Hill County to pick cotton while his wife and the younger four stayed home. From memories of Neoma Hudson Savage: Carrie Elizabeth Pate came with her parents and grandparents to Hill County from Alabama in 1881. Her mother had three sisters and twelve brothers. May, 1998.....from aunt Lillian Rae Hudson Verhalen: Moma's grandmother is to have been Cherokee. Her mother's mother? Anyway, it was thru her mother, and it was her grandmother, not sure which one.

She was always available to nurse any family member who needed her. She loved to travel on the Greyhound Bus, a and knew people in every town. The following is from her own writings: My first recollection is moving near Penelope, where my sister Ruby was born in 1905. When Ruby was 18 months old she died of pneumonia and typhoid fever. She is buried in Cotton Wood Cemetery, where our oldest brother who was still born was buried in 1898, William Travis. Papa sold our place near Penelope and rented a place in the Barton Community, between Penelope and Malone. Eniver Bets was born June 6, 1907. When she was six weeks old, Papa rigged up a covered wagon with a grub box on the back and we set out for Rochester, Texas to Uncle Charlie Hudsons. We stayed there a while and went on up to Hollis Okla. to Grandma Pate's, Uncle Luther Pate, Uncle Hunter Pate, Aunt Lina Jenkins, Aunt Zue Hagains, Aunt Hattie Jones, they lived in dugouts. Then we went back to Rochester. While we were gone, their daughter, Fannie, had died and "Pete Ike" had been born, Sep of 1907. We were gone six weeks on that trip. Years later, I mentioned something of the trip, like on my 4th birthday, we ate dinner at Mama"s half sister, Annie Smith...Moma didn't think I could remember, but I did.
