Thomas James Hudson, b. 25 September 1866, Smith Co., TN, d. 3 April 1938, Alvarado, Johnson Co., TX; m. 6 November 1887, Carthage, Smith Co., TN, Mary Byron Caruthers, b. 18 May 1870, Carthage, Smith Co., TN, d. 5 February 1951, Fort Worth, Tarrant Co., TX, d/o Benjamin Allen Caruthers and Martha? ----

John William(s) Hudson, b. ca 1796, d. ca 1849, Wilson Co., TN; m. 1820 Campbell Co., TN, Nancy Ann Davis, b. 1806, Wilson Co., TN, d. 1845, Wilson Co., TN

My uncle, Malcolm Howard Hudson, founded the Hudson Family Association (HFA) and over the years I have started with his work and added to my database from a wide variety of sources including the HFA. An important caveat, it is unsourced but I believe accurate in many cases. One thing I would like to achieve is correct a very major error in a published mistake my uncle made just before his death. Although he said he was "speculating or making an educated guess", he included in his pedigree a link from this GG Grandfather to a George Hudson and Mary (Molly) Berry. This link has since been proven in error by my DNA tests. His book, "Hudson's my Father Never Knew", has become the source for an extreme number of on-line "family files". Many can be found in the LDS database both on line and in heir fiche around the world. It is likely that this error will continue to be perpetuated forever.

As of now, I have not been able to find the correct link beyond John William Hudson, but I have several DNA cousins out there and that is my goal.

I would be glad to offer what I have on an individual basis to any inquires on the Hudson surname including the Hudsons of Chesterfield, Amelia, and Hanover. I also have a very complete file for the descendants of Edward D. Hudson and Mary Ann Wheat.

I also have extensive number of individuals in the Hutchins/Hutchens line. I have everything published in Rita Hineman Townsend's 5 volumes of "Hutchins/Hutchens - Descendants of Strangeman Hutchins". To this I added my uncle's work in this line plus contributions of many others.

Hi Jim, do you have a GEDmatch we could compare? I have a sneaking suspicion your John William and Nancy Davis are the parents of my John Crockett. I'd love to compare our DNA and see!!

Hi Jim, I sent you a message nearly 2 months ago, was just curious if you'd looked at John Crockett Hudson. He is my 3rd ggf and is a brick wall for us - we can't figure out where he came from. I'm wondering if your John William Hudson and my John Crockett Hudson were father and son....mine's mother's name was supposedly Nancy. Also, I'd be willing to compare DNA with you on GEDMatch, Ancestry, or Family Finder. I already have a match to several Wilsons and Hudsons from Rutherford County.

Hi Jim,

I'm also a Hudson descendant, looking to break a brick wall of my gggf Alfred Moore Hudson and his father John Hudson. If you could check out his page and see if it rings any bells, I would sure appreciate it! Thanks! -Summer :)

Hi Jim, Very glad to "meet" you. I'm also an HFA member and have contributed to the Bulletin on my MD & DE Hudsons. My line is from Henry, Accomack VA thru Mary (1728 MD), wife of John McCabe (my DAR DE ancestor). Also happy to share with you or others.

Hi Jim,

This is the farthest back I've gotten on that line: http://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Hudson-3597 John Hudson Sr.

Anything you care to add would be great!

Any questions... Just ask, if I don't know I may know someone whom does.

Hi Jim,

If you lowered your privacy level one notch to show family tree the relationship finder would work. Chances are good that a majority of Hudson, Burton, Baker, Girdler, Rainwater, etc. families in the Cumberland Gap area (Kentucky, Virginia, Tennessee) are relatives of mine. Many of these families arrived in the Southern Colonies or were Native Americans. Pedigree charts always need to be sourced. I'm partial to FamilySearch due to they tell me where the record came from. Sadly, the Civil War lost many records forever...
