Biography

PLEASE DISCUSS SIGNIFICANT CHANGES TO THIS PROFILE WITH THE PROFILE MANAGERS. This corrected profile of William Hudson represents a great deal of work by several researchers.. Many if not most published family trees have confused and / or combined two different William Hudsons. The profile managers have worked to provide the correct documented line -- if you have conflicting information, please discuss with profile managers before making a change. Thanks !!


This is the profile of William Hudson, father of Ursula, Cairy, and Polly Hudson, and possible father of William Hudson Jr and Samuel Hudson.

CAUTION: Lunnenburg / Brunswick / Mecklenburg records show BOTH a William Hudson who was married to a Susanna and a William Hudson who was married to a Sarah. Often these two men, with the same name, living in the same area, have been confused by genealogists. After considerable effort, there now seems to be a clear document trail to correctly identify these two different men, "Cut and paste" work seems to be continuing to spread the old confused information which either mixes up these two men or combines them as if they were one man.

Documents that offer support / proof that this William Hudson was son to Peter Hudson, is provided at the end of this bio.

In addition, we have included some notes from some of the excellent research * by Wilborn researchers) that linked Samuel Hudson to son William Hudson and on to Cairy Hudson Wilborn and Polly Hudson Wilborn have also been included below the bio notes.

I leave these notes here it here for now since the Wilborn property in Mecklenburg provides a powerful proof to show that the William Wilborn who is selling some of his father's (Peter Hudson's) property is the same William Hudson whose daughters married the Wilborn brothers.

2015 work confirmed earlier work ( 2010 ) that Peter Hudson was father to "this" Wm Hudson. (In doing this, of necessity, a fair amount of info on the other William Hudsons was developed , which has also been added to WikiTree)


{ William Hudsons father, Peter Hudson, 1695 - 1752 was born in Henrico County VA . He was most likely the son of Robert Hudson }and is listed in the Peter Hudson Will. The DAR also accepts the evidence that this William Hudson (specifically , the William Hudson who is father to Ursula Hudson who married James Pool) is indeed the son of Peter Hudson.

DAR has approved Wm Hudson and Sarah's service to count for DAR membership: On April 9, 1782, Mecklenburg County, Virginia, William and Sarah (though she is unnamed) contributed for Continental use 7 cwt Beef, 7 cwt Flour, and 4 ½ bushels of corn (Mecklenburg County Court Order Book 5, p. 126)

On April 10, 1782, Mecklenburg County, Virginia, William and Sarah (though she is unnamed) contributed about 350 cwt of beef on the hoof during the Revolutionary War, for Continental use (Order Book 5, p. 134). This qualifies him to be a patriot, by DAR standards.

William’s sister Judith Harris and Thomas Wilbourn appear in the same lists of contributors. Thomas’s two sons William and Jeremiah marry William’s two daughters Cary and Polly, respectively. So this patriotism was a family affair.

DAR has approved this service:


Additional Bio Notes

W T Pool note; in order to prove which Wm Hudson was son of Peter and father to Ursula, Cairy, and Polly we (several Pool / Hudson / Wilborn / Harris researchers) had to research a number of William Hudson's. Some of this is now posted on wiki tree for use for other researchers. (some additional information has also been published at various other genealogical web sites).

1. Peter Hudson, 1695 - 1752 was born in Henrico County VA . He was most likely the son of Robert Hudson. In 1723 he married Martha Briggs in Halifax VA. He died in Halifax County in 1752 and Martha died in 1774. The Rev War Pension documents and family Bible list 8 children, with Rebekah (Rebecca) being the eldest and William Hudson being the eldest boy .

2. William Hudson is believed to have been born in VA, probably in Halifax Co. He is estimated to have been born in about 1730 (was adult at time of his father's Will). Ursula Based on. William Hudson died in Edgefield SC in 1813; he was living there with his other two daughters and their husbands (Wilborn brothers). William Hudson probably had other children ( likley Wm Jr and Samuel) but only three are know for sure to be of this family: Cairy Hudson, Polly Hudson, and our Ursula Hudson.


This William Hudson is the father of Ursula, Cairy, and Polly Hudson (and with less firm proof, of Wm Hudson Jr and Samuel Hudson).

Below are facts that are beyond question (documents fully support), using them we were able to eliminate a number of "false" William Hudsons. (these facts eliminate all other known candidates for the Wm Hudson that was father to Ursula, Cairy, and Polly Hudson, This choice for ancestors of Ursula Hudson is consistent with the D.A.R. 's ancestry; since the work was done independently, that adds to our confidence that we have it right.

1. William was born in c 1730. William Hudson (assuming Peter Hudson is father) ... ( he may or may not be the Wm Hudson who died in 1813. In Edgefield SC. ) 2. Documentation of land deeds prove this Wm Hudson was son of Peter Hudson (see below for documentation) 3. Wm he was living in Mecklenburg in 1782 , the year that his daughter married James Pool == see census data below: 4. gave land to 3 dau and sons in law in SC in 1809 5. gave slaves to dau (same slave seen in Mecklenburg VA and ties father of Ursula/ Cariy/ Polly to the Wm Hudson who was previously shown to be Peter Hudson's son) 6. death date unknown, but after 1809 (not the Wm Hudson that died in the same Edgefield Co SC in 1813 different children

SUMMARY: Evidence is provide below: That William Hudson is son of Peter (known because he is shown selling portions of the Peter Hudson tracts of land). That he is the same William Hudson who married Sarah (co sign deeds, Sarah's maiden name unknown) That he is the same who owned land by the Wilborns (future sons in law) on Bluestone Creek, (deeds) That he is the same who was brother to Judith Hudson (daughter of Peter Hudson)(Will) The same that is linked to the Pool's (Wm Hudson and Alexander Pool are witness to Wm Harris will)(Will) The same shown to own slave "Barnett" in Meckelnburg and later , in SC , gives that same slave to his daughter Polly.(tax record, deed) The same as father to Ursula, Cairy, and Polly (Polly proved by slave gift, Polly's sisters Ursula and Cairy (various spellings) are proved by a gift of land by Wm Hudson in 1809) --

This links Peter Hudson, Wm Hudson, Ursula / Cairy / Polly Hudson (although I think there is evidence that Wm Hudson Jr and Samuel Hudson may belong in this chain, I don't think those remain speculative)

==============

DOCUMENTATION TO PROVE WILLIAM HUDSON IS SON OF PETER AND FATHER TO URSULA, POLLY, AND CAIRY: note these references are from genealogy.com, but the same references are available at World Connect, and at ancestry.com

1.Proofs that Wm Hudson is son of Peter This Wm Hudson is shown in deeds selling off portions of thte 3200 acre tract of land that once belonged to his father Peter Hudson (see Peter Hudson's Will)

Evidence of Wm Hudson as son of Peter Hudson October 3, 1758: William Hudson of Lunenburg Co. sells to Peter Fontaine of Hanover Co., for £100, 400 acres lying in Lunenburg Co. on north side of Stanton R. on upper side of Buffalo Cr., being part of tract granted to Peter Hudson, decd, and containing 3280 acres on 24 Aug 1754 and adjacent lands of said Fontaine and James Hudson; signed William (X) Hudson; acknowledged Oct 3, 1758 (Deed Book 5, p. 316; Order Book 5, p. 115) May 15, 1760: William Hudson of Lunenburg Co. sells to Filmer Wells of Halifax Co. for £70, 400 acres, being part of 3200 acre tract lying in Halifax Co., bounded and beginning at a white oak in the line of Richard Smith, thence southward etc. and adjacent lands of Wm Drew; wit: Edward Booker, James Mauraw (sic), Elijah Hunt; signed: William (X) Hudson and Sarah (X) Hudson (Deed Book 2, p. 1 connecting William Hudson to 1 Peter Hudson. (from Genealogy.com) Now this is a copy from another researcher of a deed from Charlotte Co. V 3 Aug 1771 Patent Arthur Griffin Junior, (Anthony Griffin) ....1350a Charlotte Co VA on the brs. of Buffalo Creek adj. *William Hudson*, Fontaine, Williams, Ashworth, Cornish, Binton/Burton & Richard Hudson...Whereas by Patent 24 August 1754 granted unto Peter Hudson dec'd containing 3280 Acres in Charlotte formerly Lunenburg County And whereas Peter Hudson & Robert Hudson Executors &c of the sd

CONNECTING WM HUDSON TO PETER HUDSON AND JAMES POOL (husband of Ursua Hudson) Will of Wiliam Harris ties Wm Hudson to Peter Hudson via Peter's daughter Judith Hudson Harris, and to the Pool family via Alexander Pool, brother in law to Wm Hudson's daughter, Ursula. Judith Harris (daughter of Peter Hudson and brother to Willam Hudson)-- William Hudson is executor. Alexander Pool was a witness to this will . Alexander Pool was James Pool's brother ( James is the husband of Wm Hudson's eldest daughter Ursula). Note that Alexander Pool, after he moved to NC, named a child for Willam Hudson.

2. PROOF WILLIAM HUDSON IS HUSBAND TO SARAH AND OWNING LAND ON BLUESONE CREEK (where the Wilborn family lived) from "Genealogy.com" February 14, 1791: William and Sarah Hudson sell 400 acres to Samuel Hudson, for 500.00 pounds, on the Branches of the Middle Bluestone Cr., bounded by Chavis, Winn, and Glaspie. Wit: John McGuire, Thomas Graves, William Graves; signed: William X Hudson and Sarah X Hudson (Deed Book 8, p. 159)

December 4, 1804: William and Sarah Hudson sell 324 acres to Samuel Hudson, for 350.00 pounds, on the Middle of Bluestone Cr. bounded by Jacob Chavis, Th. Vaughn, and Samuel Hudson. Wit: Howel (sic) Rose, Robert Harris, William Thomas. Proved by oaths of Robert Harris, William Harris, and Howel (sic) Rose; signed: Wm X Hudson and Sarah X Hudson (Deed Book 12, p. 232)

Since these deeds are located near William and Sarah’s property. most interpret this as selling land to their son. But this is less than "proof" so we leave it as a "speculative" connection to a son..

3, Records of the Slave Barnett were noted by two sharp eyed researches. This is a vital reference because it can be used to link the Mecklenburg Wm Hudson to Ursula Hudson Pool, Cairy Hudson Wilborn, and Polly Hudson Wilborn. (I would reference the original researcher if I knew the name, excellent work here) from genealogy.com

Photocopies of these documents are available at the following web sites:

  • ancestry.com
  • the 1790 Tax List of Mecklenburg County, Virginia, and again in 1799

(http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1790PersonalB/21.jpg)

later, in 1809 in a Edgefield SC Deed, Wm Hudson is shown to give that same slave to daughter Polly Hudson Wilborn.

also in 1809 in a deed recorded in both Edgefield and in Laurens SC, Wm Hudson gives land in SC and NC to daughters Cairy, Polly, and Ursula. (Polly being shown to be daughter of Wm Hudson who owned slave Barnett; now Cairy and Ursula are shown to be daughters of the same William Hudson


QED ( I hope)


+++++++++++++++++ FOLLOWING IS A PREVIOUS PROOF / DISCUSSION by Wm T Pool, ...WHILE, FOR THE MOST PART, THIS IS A DUPLICATE ON KEY POINTS, WE RETAIN IT BECAUSE IT DOES CONTAIN SOME ADDITIONAL POINTS OF EVIDENCE THAT MIGHT BE OF USE TO RESEARCHERS.

THE FOLLOWING IS NOT CURRENT, IT IS A PREVIOUS WRITE UP, LEFT FOR REFERENCE

the following are old notes, for reference only (since it may be of use to researchers) ... it is being left "for now" on the thought that it may be useful reference if family trees are downloaded and merged which have previous research, now known to be wrong.

ONCE ANY "QUESTIONS / CHALLENGES" TO THIS PROFILE HAVE BEEN RESOLVED, THIS SECTION SHOULD EITHER BE DELETED OR MERGED INTO THE MAIN PROFILE.

the best current information is contained in the section above


Many men were named William Hudson: There are multiple William Hudson's (at least 3, see below for a Wm Hudson that died in Lunenburg VA in about 1811) and keeping them straight has been a challenge. In reviewing my old (2010) notes, there are strong reasons to doubt that the Wm Hudson that died in Edgefield in 1813 was the same as Ursula's father (one significant item is that the 3 Hudson women living nearby were not mentioned in the will). update, additional work confirms that the 1813 Wm Hudson is a different man.

timeline (subject to revision) for Wm Hudson, father to Ursula

  • 1732 (or earlier) birth, estimated based on 1753 probate of Peter Hudson Will, Wm Hudson must have been over 21, born in 1832 or earlier (given
  • 1760 est date of m arriage to Sarah. 1758 OCT 1758 Deed does not mention wife, 1860 Deed does mention her.

* 1809 or later death after 1809,( likley not too much later) see deeds dated 1809. James Pool research group concluded that the Wm Hudson who died in 1813 in Edgefield was a different Wm Hudson Wm Hudson is positively the father to Ursula, Polly, and Cary. Other children remains speculative at this time.

Some Additional Notes:

  • Most likely father is Peter Hudson, however, this again is not positive as of the writing,.
  • gave land in SC and NC to 3 daughters as shown in the following deed:

laurens co, sc deed book J, page 146, 1809, william hudson to my son-in-law james pool and dau ursula; my son-in-law william wilborn and my dau cary; my son-in-law jeremiah wilborn and dau polly of edgefield dist, sc 1--two tracts on the beaverdam creek of reedy river; 2- two other tracts in rutherford co, nc on simms creek of little broad river. wit: anderson crowder, joseph field. john lyon, j.q.e.d.

Notes from Belva Cauthen From: belva cauthen <belvacauthen@yahoo.com> Subject: [HARRIS-HUNTERS] also re harris/ watson/ poole/ ragsdale/ hudsonva/ sc part two Date: Mon, 31 Dec 2007 12:24:37 -0800 (PST) as also indicated, william hudson was also one of the executors of william harris/ judith hudson's 1778/ 1779 mecklenburg co, va will and, again, this is indicated to have been the william hudson, who was the son of peter hudson, sr and who was also the father of judith hudson harris.

then, it is also definitely indicated to have been this same william hudson's daughter ursula hudson, who married james poole in 1782 in mecklenburg co, va and, then, william hudson and his son-in-laws: james poole; william wilborn; and jeremiah wilborn were in laurens/ edgefield cos, sc by 1809 or earlier, per this laurens co, sc deed.

here is the info re james poole and ursula hudson poole, daughter of william hudson and this deed can also be found in the laurens co, sc records book 1785-1820 by sara nash.


According to his Revolutionary War pension application, James Pool was born 5 April 1746 (or 1756) in Brunswick County, Virginia, and died 29 July 1839 in Laurens County, South Carolina. He married 07/11/1782 Mecklenburg County, Virginia, to Ursula Hudson, daughter of William Hudson of Laurens County (25). 1809 Novemeber 28, Wm. Hudson to son-in-law James Pool & my daughter Ursula Pool, son-in-law Wm Wilbon & my daughter Cary, son-in-law Jeremiah Wilbon & my daughter Polly of Edgefield District- Deed of Gift, two tracts on Beaverdam Creek of Reedy River, bounded south on Allen Mitchell, east on John Taylor, north on John Lyles, west on Thos. Williamson; 2) other tract in Rutherford County, North Carolina, on Simms Creek of Little Broad River. Witnesses: Anderson Crowder, Joseph Fields. John Lyon, J.Q., Edgefield District; recorded 18 April 1810


here is the laurens co, sc version of the same deed in the laurens co, sc records book by sara nash:

THE FOLLOWING IS THE BASIS OF THE SPECULATIVE IDENTIFICATION OF THE WIFE OF THIS WILLIAM HUDSON AS DAUGHTER OF WILLIAM HILL

The Wm Hudson who was married to Sarah (maiden name unknown) was father to Ursula , Cary , and Polly Hudson is a different man.

old notes---

William Hudson Deed 1804 (comments written by Belva Cauthen - 11/09 email) . . . . this 1804 mecklenburg co, va deed i am going to cite, and which, again, i found per my recently studying these somewhat later mecklenburg co, va deeds and records on microfilm at a library here in jackson, this deed pertains to william hudson and his wife, sarah.

Update- note that the land location is same area that the Wilborns lived in Mecklenburg VA. Two Wilborn brothers, William and Jeremiah, married two of William Wilborns daughters --- this nearby property offers strong support for connecting this William Hudson as the father of Cairy and Polly Hudson (who married the Wilborn brothers)

this is from this indenture is made this fourth day of december eighteen hundred and four between william hudson and his wife sarah hudson of the county of mecklenburg and mecklenburg co, va deed book 12, page 232, december 4th, 1804, state of virginia of the one part and samuel hudson of the same county and state aforesaid for and in consideration of three hundred and fifty pounds of current money of virginia to him in hand paid by the said samuel hudson doth hereby acknowledge hath given granted bargained sold, etc the said samuel hudson his heirs and assigns forever one certain tract or parcel of land being in the said county of mecklenburg and containing three hundred and twenty four acres and bounded as follows to wit beginning on a ______ of the middle bluestone creek and bound by jacob chavas line, thomas vaughan's line and samuel hudson's line to the said creek and then up the creek as it meanders to the beginning, to have and to hold the aforesaid granted bargained and sold land and premises, appurtances unto the said samuel hudson his heirs and assigns forever.........signed: william hudson, with a mark; sarah hudson, with a mark. update notes: Ties William Hudson and wife Sarah, and the Bluestone Creek property owned by the same Wm Hudson whose daughters Polly and Cairy married Wilborns (Pollyand Cairy are proved in other documents to be the sisters of Ursula Hudson Pool)

witnesses were: howell rose; william harris; and robert harris (the Hudson / Harris connection is well documented by researcher Belva Cauthen as well as the connection to James Pool, husband to Ursula Hudson.

at a court held for mecklenburg co, va on the 8th day of april, 1805, this deed was proven by the oaths of robert harris, william harris, and howell rose and ordered to be released.

======= ===========

the Wm Hudson that left a Will is a different line, the following is inserted to help prevent confusion between these two men, both of which lived in Edgefield Co SC at about the same times. THE FOLLOWING REFERENCE IS A DIFFERENT WM HUDSON, THE ONE THAT DIED IN 1813 -- THIS OFFERS EVIDENCE THAT HE MAY BE THE SON OF ISAAC HUDSON, HOWEVER, I HAVE NOT DONE ENOUGH WORK TO POSITIVELY CONFIRM THIS There is a Will of a William Hudson on the South Carolina Archives. http://www.archivesindex.sc.gov/onlinearchives/Thumbnails.aspx?recordId=301107 This also mention son Isaac. Which I believe you can connect back to this William and Isaac Hudson line. I================

as noted above, a lot of the Proof on William Hudson was done by Wilborn researchers, here are some notes:

This from the family of William Wilborn found on Genform.genealogy.com. Cordial greetings,

Here are the children of William and Cairy (Hudson) Wilbourn, Edgefield District, SC, and later Yalobusha County, MS.

Peter Hudson Wilbourn sued his own mother in 1831, after the decease of his father and her husband William Wilbourn.

The links in the chain for me work out like this:

William Wilbourn m. Cairy Hudson - Champion m. Elizabeth Ann - Amonet m. Maggie Nancy Gray - William Harvey m. Frances Victoria Daniel - my grandmother (All Wilbourns)

PETER HUDSON WILBOURN V. CAIRY (HUDSON) WILBOURN

SON V. MOTHER

The source of these two documents is found in the Probate Court, Edgefield District, Case # Equity 397. But the case is long and involved, stretching 40+ single-spaced pages. For family researchers, the next two documents provide all the data we need in the elaborate case.

In this highly abbreviated document, I can find no date, but it’s in 1831, to judge from other documents in the case. Peter Wilbourn hires the law firm of Bauskett and Wallace and asks the court to the issue an injunction against his mother Cairy Wilbourn, for mishandling the estate and deflating its value during its sale (as Peter saw things). This complaint says that his father and her husband William died on March 24, 1828.

This document includes yet another copy of William's will.

Go here for two copies of the will in a post dated May 28, 2009, by JA.

http://genforum.genealogy.com/wilbourn/messages/79.html

Finally, note that Cairy's daughter Elizabeth is married to William Webb. Also, In the copy of the will, the nickname Kitty disappears and the formal name Catherine appears. The nickname Jiny is found, but not Jane, so Jiny and Jane are the same person; Jiny is just a nickname. It should not be transcribed as Jurey or Jerry.

The document reads:


Edgefield In Equity

Peter H. Wilbourn, Exor & others vs Cary Wilbourn, Exor & others

Bill for Account, Relief and Injunction

The State of South Carolina Edgefield District In Chancery

To the Honorable the Chancellors of the said State

Humbly complaining show unto your Honors your orators and oratrixes, Peter H. Wilbourn, William Webb and Elizabeth his wife, Catherine Wilbourn, and the four following minors John Wilbourn, Mary Wilbourn, Dicy Wilbourn and James Wilbourn, who sue here by the said Peter H. Wilbourn their guardian and next friend,

That William Wilbourn late of the district and State aforesaid, departed this life on or about the twenty fourth day of March in the year one thousand eight hundred and twenty eight leaving a last will and testament in which he disposed of his property as follows, "My wish and desire is that my beloved wife Cary Wilbourn, do have the plantation and tract of land whereon I now live, which is the whole of my land, one half of the mill on Cufferton Creek, also all my stock of horses cattle, hogs and cows, one negro boy by the name of King, a woman by the name of Lucy and her three children, all this property I give my wife during her natural life or widowhood, and in case of either I wish the whole of the property sold, on a credit of twelve months and equally divided among all my children including the heirs of Champion Wilbourn I do also appoint Betsey Ann Wilbourn guardian for the three children she has by son [sic] Champion Wilbourn. My will and desire is that the whole of the rest of my property be sold immediately after my death on a credit of twelve months and after paying all my just debts be equally divided between all my children viz, the heirs of Champion Wilbourn, Elizabeth Wilbourn Peter H.

And to the execution of the said Will he appointed his wife Cary Wilbourn and your orator Peter H. Wilbourn Executrix and Executor, and also appointed them guardians to the five last named of his children . . . .

June 20 and 21, 1831. This highly abbreviated document is in the middle of an estate fight between Peter H. Wilbourn and his mother Cairy Wilbourn. It is included here because it shows the minor children’s ages and the date of Jane Wilbourn’s and William Newman’s marriage: December 10, 1831.

Minor children’s ages:

John 20 Mary 17 Dicy 14 James 13

The document reads:

Edgefield In Equity

Cary Wilbourn & others

Answer of adv

P. H Wilbourn

Cary Wilbourn & William Newman & others

Wardlaw & Wardlaw & Butler & Griffin

Filed in my office 21 June 1831 Whit. Brooks C.E.E.D. [= Court of Equity Edgefield District]

The State of South Carolina Edgefield District In Equity

To the Honorable Chancellors of the state of South Carolina.

. . . The joint and separate answer of Carey Wilbourn & William Newman & Jane his wife to the Bill of Complaint of Peter H. Wilbourn, William Webb & wife & others . . .

. . . One of the said children Jane is married to Wm Newman, John is in his twentieth year, Mary in her seventeenth, Dicy in her fourteenth & James in his thirteenth year. It is true these the said children have not been sent to school for the last year & the present, but the reason was that there was no school in the neighborhood, & their property is not large enough to board them out, without extravagances . . .

. . . The Defendants further answering say that William Newman the respondent since his marriage on the 10 of December 1829 has resided in the family of the respondent Carey Wilbourn & at her request has the general charge of her plantation . . .

END OF TWO DOCUMENTS

Note that in all the William Wilbourn documents the number and names of his children are given. The data are specific. Once again, go here for two copies of his will, in a post dated May 28, 2009 by JA:

8. The following post is a distillation of a 20+ page research file based on other documents like deeds.

1. CHAMPION:

He’s my direct ancestor, so his data are not included in this post (too much).

2. ELIZABETH (c. 1800-1860s?)

She was born about 1800, in Edgefield District, South Carolina; she married William Webb, per her father’s probate, as follows:

Her father William’s will was drawn up May 3, 1827, and it does not mention her being married. But the Mill Case provides a hint. Though undated, it is likely in 1828, probably around June, for that's when the case was initiated. It was adjudicated by June 19, 1829. The key document says she’s now married to William, so they married between May 1827 and about June 1828 (June 1829, at the very latest). The passage reads: “William Web [sic] and Elizabeth, his wife, formerly Elizabeth Wilborn” (sic).

As to their date of death, William Webb does not appear in the 1850 Census, Yalobusha County, Mississippi, while his wife appears alone, so he may have died in Alabama in the 1840s, where they had resided before 1850 (some children are said to be born in AL). She also appears in the 1860 Census, Yalobusha County, but not in the one in 1870, so she may have died in the 1860s. However, more research may reveal that she (and her husband) lived longer.

3. PETER HUDSON(1804 to 1839?)

He was born on June 12, 1804, Edgefield District, South Carolina; he married Elizabeth “Betsy” Getzen on November 17, 1830, in the same place. Per the Loose Paper Files in the Edgefield County Archives, on August 19, 1839, Edgefield District, South Carolina, Samuel P. Getzen was appointed guardian for Susan and Mary Wilburn (sic), who are Peter H. and Elizabeth Wilbourn’s two children. Elizabeth Wilbourn signed the consent to appoint Samuel as guardian. This probably indicates that Peter had died just before this date. Elizabeth died in Barnwell, South Carolina, in February 1897, per a researcher who descends from Peter and Elizabeth.

It's clear now that Peter Hudson Wilbourn was named after his great-grandfather (possibly his great-uncle of the same name): Peter Hudson. Great-grandfather Peter's son was William, who was Cairy's father. Go here for a transcription of Peter Hudson's will:

http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=findem&id=I10953 <http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op=GET&db=findem&id=I10953>

4. CATHERINE (c. 1806-1807 to ? )

She was born ca. 1806-1807. Her nickname was Kitty, per her father’s probate and lawsuit over his estate. If anyone out there has looked into this family line, please share.

5. JANE (1809-1891)

She was born November 1, 1809, in Edgefield District, South Carolina, and died February 25, 1891, in Desoto County, Mississippi. Her nickname was Jinny or Geney or Genny, etc. This nickname has been mistakenly transcribed online as Jurey (Jerry). However, a lawsuit answers the question.

William Newman (Cairy's son-in-law) and Peter H. Wilbourn are attacking each other over William Wilbourn’s estate. Part of the relevant document, dated May 29 and 31, 1831, says Genny is married to William Newman, and we know Jane was, so this is legal confirmation of Jane’s nickname. The passage reads: “Peter H. Wilburn (the defendant) . . . Genny Wilburn (the wife of complainant) . . . ."

Therefore, Gurey / Jerry does not exist as a child of William and Cairy.

In any case, Jane married William Newman on December 10, 1829, in Edgefield District. William Newman was born December 4, 1804, in Edgefield District; and he died February 23, 1836, in Yalobusha County, Mississippi, where his probate was initiated. Jane then married John Bratton, who was born about 1810, in Kentucky, and died May 17, 1876, in Desoto County, Mississippi. Jane died February 25, 1891, also in Desoto County.

6. JOHN (1812-1882)

He was born February 29, 1812, Edgefield District, South Carolina. He married Mary Elizabeth Tullis April 9, 1834, in Yalobusha County, Mississippi. He died at his home in the Wayside community, west of Scobey, in Yalobusha County. He resided in the same community. Mary Tullis was born June 19, 1829, and died January 16, 1909, a daughter of William Tullis and his first wife Nancy Truitt. Both John and Mary are buried in the John Wilbourn Cemetery at Wayside, but John’s gravestone is broken across the death date, making it illegible.

7. MARY (1814 to 1860s)

She was born 1814, in Edgefield District, South Carolina; she married Ebenezer Minter. Researcher Chris Morgan writes: “The marriage of Ebenezer Minter and Mary Wilbourn is recorded in the index to Yalobusha County Marriage Book A,” (Yalobusha Bound, page 521), but he does not offer the date (or I couldn’t find it in his book of 1200+ pages). She died in the 1860s, in Texas, for she appears in the 1860 Census, but not in the one for 1870. Ebenezer died after 1880, for that’s when he last appears in the censuses, at 69 years old, a widower, in Texas.

8. DICY (1817 to 1890s?)

She was born 1817, in Edgefield District, South Carolina, per her father’s probate. She married Elias E. Gentry on February 12, 1835, in Yalobusha County, Mississippi. Chris Morgan, in Yalobusha Bound, page 563, writes: “Elias E. Gentry died in 1886; Dicey Wilbourn . . . died in the 1890s.”

9. JAMES MONROE (1819-1876)

He was born April 28, 1819, Edgefield District, South Carolina, and died January 8, 1876, in Hardy, Grenada County, Mississippi. His wife Ann Elizabeth Tabb was a daughter of John H. Tabb and Sarah Locke. Ann was born February 28, 1820 and died September 21, 1882, in Panola County, Mississippi, probably on her son Jesse’s farm, where she was living, per the 1880 Census.


I hope these data help all Wilbourn family researchers. I post it in a forum, to get maximum exposure and to have full access.

wilbourn/messages/121.html Let’s get back to William and Sarah Hudson. WILLIAM William was born by 1732 in Henrico County, Virginia. He married Sarah (maiden name unknown so far), after October 3, 1758 and before May 15, 1760, probably in Lunenburg County, Virginia. He died after November 28, 1809, when he wrote up three deeds of gift, in Edgefield District, South Carolina.

More about him: He was of age (not a minor) when his father Peter’s will was written in 1752 and probated in 1753. So he was born by 1732, or several years earlier, for he may not have been the youngest child. On October 3, 1758, Lunenburg County, Virginia, William sells 400 acres. A wife is absent from the standard deed’s dower relinquishment section. Though sometimes documents are inconsistent, this absence indicates he was not married by that date. Yet he sells land May 15, 1760, and his wife Sarah is named in the dower relinquishment section. So we now know he married between those two dates, certainly before May 15, 1760. If he was born before 1732, he was getting close to 30 in 1758-1760, mature indeed for a single man at that time in history.

William outlived his wife. That’s why she doesn’t appear in the deeds of gift, November 28, 1809, to his three daughters in Edgefield and Laurens Districts, South Carolina. If William Hudson was born around 1730 and he died after November 1809, then he was at least 79 years old at that latter date.This is about the age of Thomas Wilbourn when he died (two of Thomas’s sons married two of Hudson’s daughters). And Thomas’s wife Hannah Lamkin died when she was about 89-90.

SARAH We don’t know very much about her. The census records of her grown child Polly (Hudson) Wilbourn strongly suggest Sarah married William in her mid-teens. She died before November 28, 1809, when her husband William Hudson’s three deeds of gifts were written to their three daughters, but she is not named in them.

On April 9, 1782, Mecklenburg County, Virginia, William and Sarah (though she is unnamed) contributed for Continental use 7 cwt Beef, 7 cwt Flour, and 4 ½ bushels of corn (Mecklenburg County Court Order Book 5, p. 126)

On April 10, 1782, Mecklenburg County, Virginia, William and Sarah (though she is unnamed) contributed about 350 cwt of beef on the hoof during the Revolutionary War, for Continental use (Order Book 5, p. 134). This qualifies him to be a patriot, per DAR standards. William’s sister Judith Harris and Thomas Wilbourn appear in the same lists of contributors. Thomas’s two sons William and Jeremiah marry William’s two daughters Cary and Polly, respectively. So this patriotism was a family affair.

She married James Pool, who was born April 5, 1746 or 1756, Brunswick County, Virginia (his grave marker says 1756). He died July 29, 1839, Laurens District, South Carolina. James and Ursula married July 11, 1782 (see links below). It is also said she was born January 1, 1762. This is consistent with her parents’ range of marriage years (1758-1760). She died November 25, 1846, Laurens District.

More about them: James and Ursula had nine kids. He names them in his pension application, namely Rebecca (born 22 April 1783), William (born 2 February 1787), Salley (born 9 March 1789), Polley (born 23 June 1791), Gabriel (born 9 November 1793), Betsey (born 6 November 1796), John (born 16 July 1799), and James Jr (born 15 March 1804). He started selling these lands in 1809, first to son William Pool

In the 1810 Census, Laurens District, Capt. Wm. Robertson's Company, p. 28, James Pool is the head of household. Males: one is 1-16; one is 16-26; and two are 45+. Females: two are 16-26; one is 26-45. There are three slaves.

In the 1820 Census, Laurens District, James Pool is the head of household. There is one male 16-18; one is 16-26; and one is 45+. Females: two are under 10; four are 10-16; and one is 26-45.

In the 1830 Census, Laurens District, p. 224, James Pool is the head of household. There is one male under 5; one is 15-20; one is 20-30; one is 30-40; and one is 70-80. There is one female 60-70. There are four slaves.

We include one deed because it names William Wilbourn, our direct ancestor. July 10, 1810, James Pool sells to John Pyles for $45.00, 20 acres on Beaverdam Creek of Reedy River, bounded on WM WILBORN, Wm. Arnold. Witness: Wm Arnold, Micajah Jones. Z. Bailey J.P.; dower relinquished by Ursula Pool; Benjamin Arnold, J. Q.; recorded 3 September 1810

Here is a transcription of most of it.

2. CARY She is our direct line, so more details about her interesting full and rich life can be found here: http://genforum.genealogy.com/wilbourn/messages/124.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/ wilbourn/messages/124.html

3. MARY / POLLY Her census data in Edgefield District, South Carolina, and Taliaferro County, Georgia, vary in her time of birth. The 1810 Census says Polly, though unnamed, lives in Jeremiah Wilbourn’s household and is between 16 and 25 (birth range = 1785-1794). The 1830 census has her down as 30-39 (birth range = 1791-1800). The only puzzle is her mother Sarah Hudson. How old was she while giving birth to Polly? See Polly’s census section, below, for a discussion. We also look at Jeremiah and Polly’s possible marriage dates in that section. In any case, since Jeremiah appears in the deeds for the first time in 1809, in Edgefield District, as a buyer, not a seller, it could be that he and Polly moved there from Mecklenburg County, later than the rest of his Wilbourn family, who moved there before February 1799. For all we know, Jeremiah and Polly may have helped her elderly father William Hudson move there, before November 28, 1809, when he left them a deed of gift. But all of these details are an unsolved mystery. Jeremiah died before November 2, 1829, when his will was probated, in Taliaferro County, Georgia. He predeceased his mother Hannah who lived to an advanced age. He may have predeceased his father Thomas, who died before March 20, 1830. It is not known yet when Mary (Polly) died.

Go to this link that has a list of names and nicknames, and Polly can indeed be a nickname for Mary. http://genealogy.about.com/library/bl_nicknames.htmhttp://genealogy.about.com/library/bl_nic knames.htm Censuses: The 1810 Census, Edgefield District, puts Jeremiah in the 26-44 years old column (birth range = 1766-1784). The unnamed adult female is in the 16-25 age column (birth range = 1785-1794). They have only two girls under 10.

If Polly was born in 1785, then her mother Sarah got married in her mid-teens. This was done often enough, back then.

Specifically, Sarah married William Hudson before May 15, 1760, because she first appears in a deed’s dower relinquishment section dated then, in Mecklenburg County, Virginia. If Polly was born in 1785, then her mother Sarah must have been a mid-teen when she married, for she was giving birth to Polly while Sarah was in her early 40s. This young age of marriage and late age of child birth were done often enough back then. So things work out. We cannot find Jeremiah and Polly in the 1820 Census. They may have been in transit to Georgia in that year, for Jeremiah drops out of the records back in Edgefield South Carolina, after 1817. Any help would be appreciated in finding him in the 1820 Census.

Before November 2, 1829, Jeremiah died. So he does not appear in the 1830 or 1840 Censuses. A search for him “confirms” his absence in those censuses.

The 1830 Census, Taliaferro County, Georgia shows a Mary Willbourn between 30 and 39 years old (birth range = 1791-1800), and this seems too young to be Polly, unless she and Jeremiah got married around 1806-07 and she was a mid-teen. This is a definite possibility. In that case, her mother Sarah Hudson was giving birth in her mid 40s, if she married in her mid-teens, before 1760. That is also a possibility. Or maybe the census taker marked Polly down in the wrong age column. In any case, if Jeremiah and Polly got married around 1806, they may have moved from Mecklenburg County, Virginia, southward to Edgefield District, South Carolina, with her father William, who left Mecklenburg after 1804 and arrived in Edgefield before 1809.


To finish out the 1830 census, living with Mary are 2 boys 10-14, and 1 boy 15-19, and no girls. Jeremiah’s daughters were not minors when he died. In fact, they were married. So they had left the household in 1830, which confirms this census. But Jeremiah indeed has two minor sons (Thomas and George) and one non-minor son (James) at his death (see his probate at the Thomas Wilbourn link, below). So we have some matches with this census and his probate, for age of maturity or majority was a little more fluid back then, than it is today. This is the right Mary (Hudson) Wilbourn and her family, in the 1830 Census.

In the 1840 Census, District 11, Columbia County, Georgia, a certain Mary Willborn appears, between 60 and 69 (birth range = 1771-1780). Mary lives with 1 girl 15-19 years old, and 2 boys, 20-30. But more research needs to be done to establish her possible move to this county. Mary is a common name, and other Wilbourns, not immediately related to our lines, lived in Columbia County. Plus, there are mismatches with the known facts about Jeremiah Wilbourn’s family. Therefore, we don’t believe this census is about Jeremiah’s family, but we place it here only for your consideration.

More information about Jeremiah and Polly, such as their deeds and probate, can be found in the post on the descendants of Thomas Wilbourn and Hannah Lamkin, here: http://genforum.genealogy.com/wilbourn/messages/125.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/ wilbourn/messages/125.html Before you click on the link, however, you can peruse Polly’s father William Hudson’s deed of gift to her on November 28, 1809, in Edgefield District, South Carolina. It says she’s his daughter and married to Jeremiah (Deed Book 30, p. 40).

5. WILLIAM JR We only know for sure that William Hudson has a son of the same name because he is sometimes called “Senior.”

It is not clear if the following documents concern William Junior, but they could be. http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1789Land/11.jpghttp:/ /www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1789Land/11.jpg At this link William Hudson has no land in 1789.

Note that he is a constable. http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1799LandB/11.jpghtt p://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1799LandB/11.jpg William Hudson is a constable, so he’s likely the same one whose personal property was assessed in 1799 (see 1799 Personal in the http address).

6. SAMUEL HUDSON He is not legally proven to be William and Sarah’s son, but strong circumstantial evidence supports the relationship. It is not clear to us when he was born, but since he was getting involved with land transactions in 1791, he reached his majority by then. So he was born around 1770. He married Nancy White February 8, 1790. He died between June 20, 1828, when his will was written, and August 18, 1828, when his will was recorded. More about them: One person who links William and Samuel together is the slave Lucy. See more about her, at her own post here: http://genforum.genealogy.com/aa/messages/2532.htmlhttp://genforum.genealogy.com/aa/m essages/2532.html We have not traced Nancy White’s ancestry, so we don’t know when she was born. But surely she’s around the same age as her husband, probably a little younger, so she was born in the early 1770s.

The next two deeds show William Hudson and his wife Sarah selling to his (probable) Samuel on Bluestone Cr., Mecklenburg County, Virginia, exactly where the Wilbourns lived. This setup gives Cary and Polly, two daughters of William and Sarah, ample opportunity to marry the two Wilbourn boys William and Jeremiah.

However, let’s focus on the two deeds to Samuel for now. The X means they signed with their marks.

February 14, 1791: William and Sarah Hudson sell 400 acres to Samuel Hudson, for 500.00 pounds, on the Branches of the Middle Bluestone Cr., bounded by Chavis, Winn, and Glaspie. Wit: John McGuire, Thomas Graves, William Graves; signed: William X Hudson and Sarah X Hudson (Deed Book 8, p. 159)

December 4, 1804: William and Sarah Hudson sell 324 acres to Samuel Hudson, for 350.00 pounds, on the Middle of Bluestone Cr. bounded by Jacob Chavis, Th. Vaughn, and Samuel Hudson. Wit: Howel (sic) Rose, Robert Harris, William Thomas. Proved by oaths of Robert Harris, William Harris, and Howel (sic) Rose; signed: Wm X Hudson and Sarah X Hudson (Deed Book 12, p. 232)

Since these deeds are located near William and Sarah’s property – indeed were their property – we can assume Samuel is their son. But so far no record has ever surfaced that legally proves his parentage. For all we know at this point, Samuel could be William’s nephew. http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1790PersonalA/18.jp ghttp://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1790PersonalA/18.j pg (William Senior and Samuel are both assessed on May 10) http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1799LandB/10.jpghtt p://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1799LandB/10.jpg (second name from bottom) http://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1799PersonalA/16.jp ghttp://www.binnsgenealogy.com/VirginiaTaxListCensuses/Mecklenburg/1799PersonalA/16.j pg

wtp note: see NC historical maps; the two William Hudsons who died around 1810-1813 in Edgefield were different men. Maps show these two men lived in very different areas of NC. Belva Cauthens notes remain valid; map helps to prove that the "NC" / "Allen cinnectged" Wm Hudson is a different man - not the son of Peter Hudson. 13 Ancestry.com, Public Member Trees (Provo, UT, USA, The Generations Network, Inc., 2006), www.ancestry.com, Database online.
