~Great Uncle~

The youngest son of Francis Benjamin "Frank" & Sallie Gordy Hudson. Irving, as he was known to family and friends, was married in 1919, to Flora Belle Langdon. Together, they had three daughters and one infant who died at birth. To my knowledge they are:

Peggy Elizabeth Hudson 1921
Infant Hudson 1923 1923
Betty Ann Hudson 1924 1944
Juanita Hudson 1926 1995

They later divorced. Around 1940, he married Millie Thelma Holmes. Millie brought 3 daughters and a son to that marriage and she and Irving had two sons together - Richard and Charles. They are connected below. I only met my Great Uncle Irving one time. I was around 8 or 10 and by then so remember him. He was ill so I didn't have the chance to get to know him as he died soon after we met. However, my grandmother always spoke very highly of Irving and Millie both.

Irving was born and raised on a sugar plantation in Bayou Sale, Louisiana called South Bend. Irving's father, Frank Hudson, was also born and raised there as was his father before him. His mother, Sallie E. Gordy Hudson was born and raised on the Gordy Plantation - a neighboring plantation also long owned by her family and involved with the sugar business. After the Civil War, the sugar planting became less lucrative and other crops were tried such as cotton, corn, and fruits. As they became retirement age, Frank and Sallie left the land and Irving and his siblings all left Bayou Sale for other lives. Frank was getting older and was sick so Irving lived for a while in Iberia Parish and took care of his parents. At that time he was working in the Salt Mining business. He moved to Jefferson Co., Texas in about 1918 or 1919 to the best of my knowledge.

Irving had 2 full brothers, 5 half sisters, and 5 half brothers by his father and 2 half-sisters by his mother.
