Data on Sarah Matilda Hudson:
Note: [vla] Above I have listed Sarah's birth year as 1859. This is the year the Phythian Home gave the C. H. Bradshaw Funeral Home and is in their records of her death. If one notes the 1860 and 1870 census records for Sarah's family respectively, she is 4 years old and has a younger sister who is 2 years old; and 13 and 11. Their parents were married 19 December 1855 in Daviess Co., KY. From this data I conclude Sarah was most likely born in 1856.
