My family descents via John Josiah (1859) Hudgens. Many descendants still reside in the same area and many are burried in Brooklynn Cemetery, Opp (Coffee Co) AL.Can anyone speculate who the parents of John (1828) Hudgens is?I suspect it is John (1806) and Mary (1807 "Mary Polly Hannah COURTNEY) Hudgens... but looking for verification and generations before them.
