Death: May 18, 1847

A pioneer of Clinton county, Ind., and a man of more than ordinary gifts and ability, we deem worthy of mention in this volume. He was born in Warren county, Ohio, March 8, 1810, and there spent his early manhood as farmer, and later as tanner for his brother, John FUDGE. August 18, 1834, he was married to Mary SMITH, of Greene county, Ohio, and came to Clinton county, Ind., the same year, settling upon the farm now owned by Henry MAISH, Sr. Here Mr. Fudge lived, tilling his farm and clearing away the wilderness about him until called to the ministry in 1847. He had been an ardent worker in the Methodist Episcopal church from the time of his conversion in Ohio, and enjoyed the confidence and respect of his brethren and friends outside the church in such a degree that, long before his entering the regular work of the ministry, he was called from far and near to conduct funerals, marriages and other religious services. As a revivalist, he was especially gifted, and Methodism owes much to his ability, and has hardly seen his equal as an organizer and leader. Many of the older residents yet living in Clinton county bear testimony to his sterling worth and integrity as a citizen. He was the father of several children, of whom Catherine Elizabeth was the first wife of Henry MAISH, whose biography is given above. His untimely death occurred at Battle Ground, Ind., March 18, 1847, from that dread disease, black erysipelas, and his remains were placed in the old South cemetery at Frankfort. His widow died May 28, 1863, and her remains were interred by his side.

Although above bio gives Warren Co.,OH as place of birth, his family did not move from Virginia until 1817.
