I am researching the descendants of William Miller and Alfred Hudson of Sampson, NC. They were half brothers. I am also interested in information about the Johnson families of Sampson, NC as both William and Alfred married Johnson sisters. About 1833 William Miller and Alfred Hudson left NC and moved to Georgia where they lived for awhile. By 1850 both families were in Coffee County, AL. After the war between the states Alfred Hudson and three of the sons of William Miller moved to Leake and Neshoba counties in Mississippi. The families moved to Marion county and were found there by the 1900 census. We think it was about 1885. I have been able to find much information on the families of George W. Miller who was my great-grandfather, John James Miller who married Mary Jane (Polly) Hudson one of the daughters of Alfred Hudson and David L. Miller. I have some information on Mary Jane Hudson, Isaac Coleman Hudson, Temperance Hudson, John Hudson, William F. Hudson and Andrew Jackson Hudson.
On Sunday July 1, 2001 we will have a Miller/Hudson family reunion at the Dixie Community center near Hattiesburg, MS.
We have been having a reunion ever first Sunday in July for as long as I can remember. Our families are now and always have been very loving and devoted to each other.
On the Miller side of the family we have had many ministers. Almost all the older generations of Miller men had Rev. in front of their names.
