There appears to be mostly census data, some shown below,  and not birth or marriage records on familysearch.  Maybe you can try plugging in the childrens names in the free search tool at:  https://familysearch.org/  and see if you can find out anymore.

He was a widower in 1880.

Thanks Chris.  I'm new at this.  I've gotten from my father, Kenneth Winfred Hudelston Jr. back to 1870, in which I think William and Maria are 5th generation back.  I couldn't get any further back in time, such a novice.  Your record of 1850 in Greenport makes perfect since.  I think William in Greenport has parents who maybe immigrants.  Also the variation in spelling is touch, seems I have a family line that changes spelling over time.  There may be an "e"  on end of surname early on???  Today it is spelled as above.  Again, THANKS!!    Patricia Hudelston McLaughlin
Your welcome.   Spelling variants are often caused by census takers who often wrote what they 'heard'! and not because the individual spelled it out for them.

And then sometimes its a transcription problem where the cursive, hand written records are difficult to read.  Even Hoyt has variants - Hoit, Hoite, Hoyte, etc.

Happy Hunting
