Could you tell me if your grandpa earl was EARL or Irl? If your Grandpa was Earl,then you are from one of the two sons of Thomas Andrew Coultrup, if your grandpa was Irl Reginald , the second, *his father was also named Irl Reginald* then you are from the son John Hudsons line.
Thomas Andrew Coultrup born - 9/10/1814 in East Church, Kent England. He married Racheal Louisa Dubois on 10/11/1853, in RockRun, Illinois.Thomas Andrew was a blacksmith. Rachel was a widow, and had three children from her previous marriage.These children were: William, Catherine, and Rachel.Ihave a 1860 census with this family, if you would like acopy, please let me know.
The children of Thomas Andrew and Rachel were as follows: 1. John Hudson - born Feb. 1855, Illinois * Santa Clara Co,CA Coultrups are from this line, and this is my husbands line. 2. Thomas Charles - born July 1858, Kansas
John Hudson's family is my husband Jeffs line. So if you would be able to tell me which spelling you have for Earl/Irl, or maybe where he lived, then I can give you exact info.
