I'm sorry to say I don't have any idea. I'm still trying to figure out what my line is.I'm not sure how Nicholas Dudley might be related to me, if at all, and I don't know who any of his family are.
There was that one cryptic obit I attached to my message that mentioned the different statesWilliam Reilly Dudley lived, some with his parents, but it didn't mention his parents by name.I was only guessing it might be Nicholas because of another family tree I found that had William Reilly Dudley listed as a son of Nicholas.
My 4th great grandfather, whom I believe to be Samuel Dudley, may be a sibling of Nicholas but I know very little about Samuel either. I am only piecing together evidence that Samuel and Martha Sherrill, are my 3rd great grandfather, Jesse Byrd's parents.I don't know for sure who Samuel and Martha's children are or who Samuel's parents are. Jesse Byrd may even be a grandchild of Samuel and Martha or their baby.I wish you luck this has been a very difficult line for me to find information about also.
