In a book I found in the Birmingham Public library on the Spotsylvania County, VA Allens, I found an interesting paragraph on Asa Allen. It states that he was a witness to a will in 1805 in Elbert Co., GA and in 1810 guardian to orphans of Henry Hudson. Who are these orphans? Is this where the name Hudson Holley Allen comes from? I have searched for more information on Henry Hudson and have had no luck. Does anyone have any clues or suggestions out there? Hudson Holley Allen was born in 1802 so he could possibly be an adopted son.
