      yes, i'm confused, but thanks for the info. i've had my james hudson married to sarah elizabeth myatt, d/o kendrick, but you're telling me that my james was married to elizabeth myatt, d/o alexander? my james went to arkansas, where he died in dallas county in 1853. i don't have when or where his wife died. may ancestor, james's son, was born 1832 in dickson co., tn. his brother, james f. jesse hudson was b 1831 in tennessee, so i suppose james hudson had married myatt by 1830 or so?

      most genealogy sites have alexander myatt's daughter dying in mississippi. that can't be the case if she's my james hudson's wife. she died in arkansas.

      any help here would be greatly appreciated.

      hi jess. thanks for your response.

      i, too, have relied on others in my attempt to piece together my hudson/myatt family. that is one reason i contacted you -- i wanted to verify what information i had.

      i can share some info that has been verified: the names of their children and their spouses. much of this comes from james's will and census forms in arkansas.

      their children: william "billy" j. hudson, b 1816 nc, m milley yates (d 1836) and julia myatt; elizabeth hudson, b 1819 nc, m moses a. short, john m. myatt and william proctor; sarah hudson, b 1823 nc, m benjamin winstead; henry w.m. hudson, b 1828 graves co., ky, m elizabeth clifton; james f. "jesse" hudson, b ca 1831 tn, m susan short; and mordicai hudson, b 1832 dickson co., tn, m lucinda bettis (my relatives).

      speculation is that his first hudson children were by a previous wife and that the last two were our myatt's children.

      i guess you are correct, elizabeth myatt hudson could have moved to mississippi after james's death so she could be near relatives.

      here's one thing i have:
      Hudson Family Association has James`s wife as Elizabeth Myatt, d/o Wyatt and Mary. First wife was listed as Elizabeth Camp, m 1802 North Carolina.

      One source has james's first wife as Elizabeth Frey, possibly the one b 1794 Germanton, Stokes Co., NC.

      thanks, too, for sending ruth pruett's info. i, too, have worked with her. we're related through the hudsons, myatts and the nixes. i'm not related to her cliftons.

      i've always questioned james's supposed marriage to sarah elizabeth myatt. i think your theory is more correct. i just wish i knew for sure. i thought the hudsons would be easy to research as they are a common and famous name, and even have a hudson family association. not so!

      my hudson ancestor, mordicai's son, george washington hudson, married a lee, whose family was far easier to track. her father (an relative of robert e.) fought for the union in the confederate state of arkansas. go figure.

      anyway, thanks for your help. i often wonder if james hudson wasn't orphaned, which was the reason that public records of his early years are lacking.

      fyi: ref alexander myatt's mother, elizabeth allen.

      i'm related to allens on a couple of sides of my family -- lee and sasser. theses allens go back to george and beyond. anyway, princess diana was also related to george allen. she's my 10th cousin.

      i wouldn't be surprised to learn that elizabeth allen is connected to this allen family. i'll be looking in the future.

      sorry. i got my allens mixed up. my tibbitses were the ones related to george allen. that bunch was in new england.

      anyway, my sassers and harbins and lees were all related to allens, so i bet there is a connection between elizabeth allen and the lees and harbins. i relate to the sassers through my 2g grandmother, who married a bowers. the sassers and lees do have a common relative, though. it gets confusing.

      i have my james with only six children: all accounted for in his will by name or child's name -- william, elizabeth, sarah, henry, james and mordicai. some have confused william's son -- james's grandson -- as a son.

      i don't know the month of birth for james jr, but mordicai was born in 1832. henry was born in 1828, supposedly in graves co., ky. william (1816), elizabeth (1819) and sarah (1823) were born in nc. i'm told these four had the same mother and that james and mordicai had a separate mother.

      i don't know of a margaret jane hudson, but my mordicai had a daughter named margaret e. -- his first born -- so i guess it's possible.

      james hudson's children married the following: william -- milley yates and julia a. myatt; elizabeth -- moses a. short, john m. myatt and william proctor; sarah -- benjamin winstead; henry -- elizabeth clifton; james -- susan short; and mordicai -- lucinda bettis.

      it's funny about genetics. i favor mordicai hudson more than any other relative i've seen, though my hair is much lighter. it's spooky how similar our eyes, nose, forehead and even widow's peak are alike. even my hair flips out in the back on the left side like his.

      did you ever get to look at my lees? there are two branches of them, but they eventually loop back together. just about all of my dad's people were english and baptists, and came from nc/va. he only had one branch -- tibbitts -- that was from new england, but that ancestor eventually moved to georgia; one -- vandever (dutch) -- that came in new amsterdam (new york), but that ancestor made it to sc; and a couple -- sparks, jones, hudgens -- that came in through maryland. (i read somewhere that most marylanders were catholics. i don't know about mine.) the md bunch went to nc/tn/ar. my others went from the carolinas to ga/al/ms/ar.

      my mother's people generally came in through pennsylvania and were scots-irish/english/welsh -- presbyterian and quaker. they pretty much stayed up north in the pa/in/il areas.

      i haven't been able to track my bowerses beyond nc. the bugger is that the name can be english, scottish or german. my dad claimed it was english. i've pretty much tracked all my close relatives -- except the hudsons and moores -- back to europe. these three branches have given me fits -- seemingly disappearing around 1800 in al and nc. i'm also trying to determine if my 3g grandmother on my dad's side was a gill, giles or something else. she was born 1810 in sc.

      yes, morgan is my james hudson's grandson, william's son. he's mentioned in james's will.

      margaret hudson ain't mine. she appears to have been the child of sarah elizabeth myatt, whom i mistakenly listed as the wife of my james. my james was born 1785 in nc, according to census info. he listed his wife as betsey or elizabeth in his will. that's what bothered me all these years -- how could he have been married to sarah elizabeth myatt, unless she went by a nickname for her middle name. didn't sit right to me. i think you're right about elizabeth, d/o alexander myatt. her birthyear is correct, too -- 1805.

      Yes, that is the family of Catherine Sheppard Clifton Leigh if we are on the right track. I did not get that information from either of the two books I mentioned. I think some of it was from The Booker Collection. I live too far from North Carolina to go to Raleigh to do research. A descendant of James Kirby Clifton does get to Raleigh and has shared her documents and information with me.

      Bailey Clifton may have been the son of John (1740-1790) and Winnie (1775) Clifton. I found today that he married Riney Alford and had at least four children, Thomas B., Isaac Simon, Peter A. and Robert Earl. He died in Tennessee. I don't know how/if this John and Winnie fit in with my ancestors in Southampton Co. VA.

      Myatts of interest related to Clifton, Hudson and Nix families:
      1. Lucinda "Lucy" Myatt, daughter of Wiley Myatt and Mary "Polly" Swanson. Lucinda married James Kirby Clifton in Dickson Co. TN

      2. Cynthia Adeline Bullock, daughter of James William Bullock and Lydia A. Myatt married Burrell A. Clifton, son of James Kirby Clifton and Lucinda "Lucy" Myatt

      3. Julia Ann Myatt, daughter of Reddick Myatt and Elizabeth Ann Wiley. Julia Ann married William J. "Billy" Hudson (son of James and Elizabeth ? Hudson) in Dickson Co on 16 SEP 1837. Their oldest child, Frances Caroline Hudson married James Bennett Nix

      4. Sarah Elizabeth Myatt, daughter of Kendrick Myatt, Sr. and Elizabeth "Bettie" Harmon. Elizabeth married James Hudson 20 FEB 1831 in Dickson Co. TN - Probably second wife

      5. John M. Myatt, son of Kendrick Myatt, Sr. and Elizabeth "Bettie" Harmon. He married Elizabeth Hudson, daughter of 4. James above on 29 OCT 1837 in Dickson Co.

      Most descendants of James Hudson who moved to Dallas Co. AR with the Cliftons think his wife, Elizabeth, on the 1850 census was second wife, Elizabeth Myatt. His daughter, Elizabeth Hudson, married John Martin Myatt in Dickson Co. TN; then Moses A. Short probably in Graves Co. KY; third William Proctor in Dallas Co. AR.

      James first wife was evidently named Elizabeth. It is confusing. Some say his first wife was Elizabeth Clamp born in NC. I don't have any proof of that. Of course, Elizabeth Myatt was born in N.C., also. Elizabeth Myatt Hudson was probably the mother of James' youngest son, Mordica (Lucinda Bettis); and step mother of William J. (Julia Ann Myatt); Elizabeth (Myatt; Short; Proctor); Sarah (Benjamin Winstead); Jesse (Susan Short); and Henry (Elizabeth "Lizzie" Clifton).

      I have probably thoroughly confused you but yes, James Hudson and daughter, Elizabeth, married the Myatt brother and sister, children of Kendrick Myatt, Sr. This is what I have but these people are not my line and there may be mistakes. I keep trying to find out more on James Hudson and Sarah Hudson Clifton's parents and siblings.

      "When Squire Ramsay came to what is now Dallas County, in 1842 (then Clark
      County), he found nothing but Indian trails, traveled by horseback, with four families
      in the Tulip settlement- Presley Watts, Henry Gray, James Kennedy and Moses
      Overton; a few bear hunters- Colbreath and his son, near Squire Ramsay's home,
      and Doris and his sons, on Cypress Creek; the Rux Farm overseers, Maj. Owens,
      and Messrs. Hudson, Strong and Joe Gray, elsewhere. In 1843 they came in rapidly
      from Virginia, North Carolina and Alabama. There was but one house from Princeton
      to Malvern sites, and the Choctaw Indian hunters roamed over the country. Bears,
      deer, panthers, wild-cats, catamounts and elks were common. Deer were thick, as
      hogs and turkeys wouldn't get out of your way," says the old carpenter, Squire
      Ramsay. Indian trails ran from Arkadelphia to Pine Bluff, up the Saline to Little Rock,
      and to Ecore a Fabre- now Camden. Many came in 1844, and from that on to the
      war. Little Rock was the nearest first market; Camden, about 1845; Malvern, in 1875;
      and Fordyce, in 1882."

      Notes for MORDECAI (MORTICIA) HUDSON:
      5/2010 Jessie Adams said Sherrie and I went on our trip through part of the south
      and I went to the places in Arkansas where Papa and Mama grew up and also to
      Mississippi (Greenville, the county seat of Washington Co.) where Mama was born
      and where your Mom found our g/grandparents' marriage record several years ago. I
      went to the court house where they told me their records went back to only 1890
      because of the great Mississippi River flood that destroyed all their records. They
      were first destroyed during the Civil War when the North burned the entire town, then
      everything between the war and flood were destroyed. The marriage record I was
      looking for was in 1870 and I knew it was somewhere because your mother told us
      the story of finding it in the basement in an old box of records. In their public library I
      found an index of marriage records for that period of time and there it was listed. On
      the front of the book there was a notation saying the record was not with the regular
      marriage records but was at the court house in a book labeled "colored" although the
      people listed were not all colored and included many people living in rural areas.
      This may be the reason it survived the flood. Sure enough I went back and asked for
      that book and they looked at me strangely (I forgot to mention there was not one
      white person working in that part of the courthouse that I saw). I found the record
      immediately and now have a certified copy--it was exciting to know that your mother
      was there holding that same document several years ago. It was not an easy find for
      me and sure wasn't for her and your dad (who must have had the patience of Job).

      unit served in McRae's, Cabell's, L. C. Gause's, and Roane's Brigade. It skirmished
      in the Indian Territory, saw action at Devil's Backbone, and later participated in the
      fight at Jenkins' Ferry. The regiment was included in the surrender on June 2, 1865.
      The field officers were Colonels Iverson L. Brooks, A. G. Greenwood, Asa S. Morgan,
      F. P. Yell; Lieutenant Colonels James P. Stanley and John C. Wright; and Major
      Samuel Gibson.

      Individual Fact: Marriage record is Lurilla
    • Source: Rodney Bowers

      hey jessica. i'm sending you a response from the hudson family association, but first wanted to mention a couple of things.

      my 2g-grandmother, who married john bowers, was ellen sasser, the granddaughter of elizabeth barber (1777-1850), daughter of abraham barber, b ca 1754 anson co., nc. the ingrams mentioned in the following were related to my lees. also, not the spelling of the following barber relative:

      The following was taken from a paper written by Evalyn Barbour, daughter of Noah Barber, August 1935 at Wadesboro, NC. The first record of the Barbers in Anson County, so far as deeds show, was of Abraham Barber who by purchase in 1787 acquired lands on Big Brown Creek about 7 miles from the mouth, formerly owned by the McClendon Family -- it is not known at present (1935) where Abraham Barber came from, but it is thought that he may have migrated from Connecticut, neighborhood of Windsor or Simsbury, shortly after the Revolutionary War. He was probably married there, or wherever he was living prior to 1787. His wife was Rhodah_______?. In 1790, he received a grant of a hundred acres adjoining his own land and touching "Ingrams Path," which it seems was a path or short cut, down to Browns Church, which was probably the church this family attended. They were Baptist by denomination. In 1791 he acquired an additional 150 acres from the McClendons, adjoining his own land and that of Samuel Hough, Goluld, Burwell Lanier and John Gollson. In 1792 his family consisted of daughters Elizabeth, Anna and Polly and sons, John, James, Abraham and Noah, who was born that year. Deed Book B#2:87, D&E:7; C#2:1.

      here's the hudson family info:

      The Hudson DNA project has one donor who descends from James Hudson through his first wife. But, he's not doing genealogy any more and no-one that I know of has, as yet, found parents for James Hudson.

      That said, we (I'm giving you some benefit of my HFA hat as well) feel James descends from Isaac Hudson (b c1700 VA). Isaac's two known sons were: John (b c1739VA d1814NC) and William ( b c1740 VA); we cannot rule out other issues. These two sons married daughters of Robert Allen (Elizabeth md John; Susannah md William). Isaac, John and William moved from VA to Bute/Warren Co, NC. Isaac reportedly returned to VA then moved back to Bute/Warren by 1760.

      At some point, John (son of Isaac), moved to Wake Co, NC from Warren Co, NC. John's issues were: Isaac, Drury, Thomas, Jesse, John & William. John, Drury, Isaac & Thomas appear in the 1790 census for Wake County. John (son of Isaac) was a Revolutionary War soldier.

      William (son of Isaac) does not appear to have gone to Wake Co; he reportedly died in Edgefield, SC. Issues of William were: Isaac, Allen, William, Winnifred, Lucinda, Elizabeth & Susannah.
