About Our Family Research

I am Researching the following Surnames: Hudson\Hutson, Tunnell, Norton, Feagins, Church\Churchill, Large, Luster & McGee. I have traced my Tree to My Gr Gr Great Grandfather James Hudson. He was born somewhere in Virginia abt 1797 & Died May 1880 in Hawkins County, Tn. He married Susan (last name unknown) from North Carolina. He is listed in the Tennessee 1820 Census. It states his age but does not mention where in Virginia he was born nor anything about his Parents. He died in 1880 in Kingsport, Tn. His Son George Washington Hudson Sr either was drafted or he joined the Army during the Civil War. My Great Great Aunt Told my Father that he was taken away By Solders & 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 Sr's name was spelled "Hutson" and the spelling remained that way at least through the 1920 Census. James Hudson's Spelling of his last name always remained "Hudson". It was told to me that the Social Security Administration told My Grandfather 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. It would be greatly appreciated.
