Linda: There were some DUDNEY's that were in Missouri. I have Barnes DUDNEY-Born-1770 in Dorchester Co. Maryland. He had a son named Pearson DUDNEY-Born-1804 in South Carolina. Lived in Henry County, Missouri "Deep Water". Children of Pearson DUDNEY & Mariah were:
1.) Benjamin Franklin DUDNEY-1847-Lincoln Co. Tenn. Died-1902 in Navarro Co. Texas.
2.) William T. DUDNEY-Bon-1848-Lincoln Co. Tenn. He lived in St. Louis Missouri-no other info.
3.) Mary Ann DUDNEY-Born-1850-Missouri
4.) Andrew Bowman DUDNEY-Born-1859-Johnstown, Missouri-Bates County.
Also on the Missouri Census I find: 1860-Abraham DUDNEY-Henry County 1860-Marion DUDNEY-Bates County 1860-Pearson DUDNEY-Henry County 1860-W.DUDNEY-Buchanan County 1870-Andrew DUDNEY-Bates County
Maybe your George P. DUDNEY belongs to one of these? Kay
