Hudgins genealogy I don't know if you got my first message. Benjamin J. Hudgins was my 5th great grandfather through his daughter Delilah Hudgins who married Dillard Brooks, and through their son John Hudgins Brooks who married Nancy Ann Polson of Jackson co Alabama.
RE: Benjamin Hudgins Hello again,Cheryl, I forgot to tell you on my previous message that Nancy Ann Polson who married John Hudgins Brooks was first cousins to Susan Caroline Proctor Hudgins who married Benjamin Franklin Hudgins. Nancy Ann Polson was the daughter of Lucy Davis Polson. Susan Caroline Proctor Hudgins was the daughter of Nancy Davis Proctor. Lucy Davis Polson and Nancy Davis Proctor were sisters and the daughters of William Davis and Mary Ann Black Fox, daughter of Cherokee Chief Enoli Black Fox...... I saw where Benjamin Franklin Hudgins and Susan Caroline Proctor were in the 1900 Chickasaw Nation Census. Have you seen that? I have heard that Benjamin,Delilah and your Phillip's mother Martha Ellis Hudgins had some Cherokee blood Have you heard this ? You can email me at Jenniferpage53@Yahoo.com
I hope it is the "Bess Hudgins" for whom you were searching. Frankly, I had my doubts when I took the photo for you. As I recalled at the time, the spousal name (which you mentioned in your note) was something other than William.
