Audley Fleming Dudley was the second son of George William Dudley and Belle (Fleming) Dudley. He was born on June 21, 1877 in Easton, Talbot County, Maryland and he died on September 1, 1916 at age 39, of Pulmonary Tuberculosis at Saranac Lake, New York.
He married his first cousin, Katherine C. Fleming, in Baltimore, Maryland in 1904. They had one daughter, Mary Virginia Dudley born on November 20, 1905 in New York City, New York.
Audley, a musician, and his brother, George Nabb Dudley, performed with Sylvester "Vess" Louis Ossman in the Ossman-Dudley Trio of phonograph fame. One of their records, recorded for Columbia Record Company, was the St. Louis Tickle in 1904. He and his brother George also had a music store in New York City.
There was an article written in the "Hobbies Magazine" by Jim Walsh, that appeared in the February 1953 issue regarding the history of the Dudley's in Talbot County, Maryland. It reads as follows: "George N. was born in Baltimore, Maryland, and Audley F. was born on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. Their grandmother had her plantation on the Eastern Shore. Their grandfather was a member of the House of Representatives. Colonel Tilghlman, of the Eastern Shore, wrote two volumes of "The History of Talbot County,' which mentions the Dudleys. He knew my husband's father, who was a trainer of racing and pacing horses and drove a high-wheeled sulky. He built a half-mile race track on the old estate. George's father had a stock farm and owned an offspring of the famous race horse, 'Hannibal.'"
He leaves a brother, George Nabb Dudley, 1876-1963; his wife Katherine C. Fleming; and his daughter Mary Virginia Dudley, 1905-1964. The services were held at the Episcopal Church in Washington D.C. The burial was in the family cemetery, possibly the Historic Spring Hill Cemetery, Easton, Talbot County, Maryland, USA; however, we also were told the burial was in Bathesda, Maryland.
