Capt James M Hudson
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: Mar. 15, 1852
Garvers Ferry
Westmoreland County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: 1931

Son of Thomas Hudson and Mary Kunkle/Kunkel. He married 1) Katherine Nancy Bowser, daughter of Noah and Catherine Bowser, in 1874; they had six children; and 2) Mary Brodhead in June 1909; she was born in Kittanning, daughter of Frank and Sarah (King) Brodhead, and granddaughter of George Brodhead, being a descendant of General Brodhead. By this union there is one child, Paul Brodhead.

James Hudson was only a boy of nine years when he began work on the Allegheny River as a cook and working up until he became captain and pilot of steamboats. He was a resident of South Buffalo Township and moved to Kittanning in 1901, where his business headquarters were. His firm, J. M. Hudson & Sons, dealt extensively in sand and gravel and owned several barges, one steamboat, hoisting apparatus and sand dredge, being well equipped to handle the large business they have built up. Captain Hudson is a representative member of a family whose operations on the Allegheny river have made them well known over all this part of Pennsylvania. From 1864 he and his brothers were interested in oil boating, and they have all acquired extensive interests on the river, owning so much stock in craft of all sorts that it is said their investments constitute two thirds of all on the river outside of Pittsburgh.
