My g-g-g-grandfather, James Adams (1795-1857) was married three times, first to Frances Herndon ( 1800-1841 ), then to Mrs. Julia Wise Hancock in 1841, and then to Mrs. Martha M. Hudson ( ca. 1797-1870) in 1842. I am trying to determine Martha's maiden name and the given name of Martha's first husband whose surname was Hudson.
Like Martha, James was born in VA . James moved to GA around 1820 and lived there for the remainder of his life, first in Elbert Co. for a couple of years and then in Jasper Co. where his children were born and where he married his second and third wives.. Martha died in 1870 while living in the home of her stepson, William Adams in Newton Co. .
