Several sources indicate Dudley was born in Vermont, New Hampshire or Canada (Quebec province). The following link is helpful in explaining the reason for the discrepancies:

Siblings preceding and following Dudley were born in Canada; it's most likely 100% probable Dudley was also born in Canada.

His Civil War draft registration also states he was born in Canada:

The obituary has some inaccuracies. Dudley and Hannah were married in Ashtabula County, Ohio on October 14, 1847. They probably moved to Oakland, Jefferson County, Wisconsin shortly after their marriage:

before moving to Hancock, Waushaura County, Wisconsin and eventually back to Jefferson County, Wisconsin.
