* * * OUR HUDSON FAMILY * * *

My maiden name is HUDSON, so I guess this is my most dedicated area of research. I hope to learn where our family was before New York in 1776 -- possibly England?

Our earliest known is Eleazer HUDSON born 9 Feb 1776. From the 1880 census of his daughters Caroline & Julia it is known he is born in New York. He is listed on the 1799 Blooming Grove, Orange Co. NY Tax Assessment Roll with house & lot. He is living in Blooming Grove (1800 census), Angelica, Allegany Co. NY (1810 census), & Goshen, Orange Co. NY (1820 census). Eleazer is on the Company Muster Roll, Quarantine Ground, Staten Island, New York, Consolidated Regiment of Infantry commanded by Lieut. Col. Michael Smith, New York Militia, as Private in Captain John Dunning's Company, War of 1812. He was appointed September 7, 1814 & according to his record which I located at the National Archives in Washington DC, he deserted on September 29, 1814. I have to believe that he wanted to be back home with Abigail, their 6 children & because the 7th was on the way. Might it also be that Abigail wasn't well, since she died not long after in Feb. 1816?

Eleazer was first married to Abigail (unknown), born 5 August 1781 in New York.
Their children:
Oscar HUDSON born December 22, 1801 married (1) Margaret JESSUP (2) Mary E. MCLAUGHLIN COREY; died June 1, 1879
Amanda HUDSON born June 13, 1803 married Shubael I. DIMOCK; died June 3, 1844
Caroline HUDSON born Apr 26, 1805 married Edward CARR; died August 28, 1887
Vinson Clark HUDSON born February 27, 1807 married Roxyann (unknown); died Sept. 28, 1844
John Riggs HUDSON born December 23, 1810 - no information
Julia Ann HUDSON born August 8, 1812 - married Elisha McGOWTY; died after 1892
Sally Mariah HUDSON born May 15, 1815 - no information

Abigail died 24 February 1816 of pleurisy & on April 12, 1817 Eleazer married Elizabeth CONNOR at the First Presbyterian Church in Goshen, Orange Co., New York.
Their children:
William HUDSON baptized December 4, 1819
Hector HUDSON baptized November 8, 1825
Mary HUDSON baptized November 8, 1825

Eleazer died October 5, 1823 of intemperance and Elizabeth was still living in Goshen as of the 1840 census.
