I am Researching The Following Surnames: Hudson, Tunnell, Lucas, Large, Norton, Feagins, Luster & McGee. I have Traced my Roots to My Gr -Gr- Great Grandfather James Hudson. He was born in Virginia. He Married Susan (last name unknown) from North Carolina. He was Born abt 1796. He is listed in the Tennessee 1820 Census and it states his age and does not mention where in Virginia he was born. He Died in 1880 in Kingsport, Tn. A stone wall that I ran into is, His Son George Washington Hudson. He was Inducted into the Army During the Civil War. My dad's Great Aunt Told his Father that he was Taken away By Confederate Solders & He Was never heard from again. He is not listed in the 1870 Census, But His Wife, Susan Large Hudson and their children are. In the 1860 Census, George W. Hudson Jr's name, at least his Family's name, was spelled "Hutson" and Remained that way atleast through the 1920 Census. James Hudson's Spelling of his last name always remained "Hudson". The Social Security Administration Told My Grand Father Walter Neil Hudson that he would have to change the Spelling to what it is now in order for him to get his Social Security Benefits. So, there may be FamiIies that have the name Spelled "Hutson" that maybe descendants of James Hudson.If anyone can contribute to This Family Tree, Feel free to E-mail me. Check out the Genealogy Reports, They have more information than the GedCom tree.
