Hudson – Duke Family


     I am a descendant of probably most of the Hudson's in  Clover Hill Cemetery.  A Hudson Heritage Book was written up in 1979 for our family.  Many of my early descendants -- John Hudson and wife Martha and John Hudson and second wife Willie are buried here. 


     John Hudson was my great grandfather...his son Walter was my mother's dad.  My great Grandpa John Hudson had 16 children by his two wives.  He lived in Georgia and Alabama before he settled in Texas.  Hubert Hudson was my Great Uncle and he died 12-20-1978 according to my Hudson Heritage book.  Also Sibyl Hudson was Hubert's wife and I checked the Texas Index records online and she died on August 1, 1991.

                This is a photo of my Uncle Floyd who was my mothers brother and this other couple is Uncle Hubert Hudson and Aunt Sibyl at a family reunion--not sure of the date but it is sometime in the 1960's or early 70's. My mother did not date it.

     Una Hudson (1906-1930) buried there. She is in my Hudson book and she was the wife of Ottis Hudson and he remarried after she died and he moved on to Brenham, TX.

     It made me sad when I saw the Hudson twins with no names or dates but they are also in my Hudson Heritage Book: twin boys and they died when they were 6 days old and were the sons of Una and Otis. There is not a date when they died but I suspect that it could be why Una died so young in 1930.

     Annie M. Duke was a Hudson. She was my great Aunt Ann. She was a marvelous lady and she was close to my Granddad Walter Hudson who is buried in the Robinson Cemetery. I never knew Aunt Ann's husband as he died in 1939.

                This is my Granddad Walter Hudson and my Aunt Annie Duke. I am not sure of the date but that is really an old car sitting there. My mother did not date this one either. Hindsight comes too late.
