Search George Hudson Slash Cottage Cemetery:

George Hudson had been buried near his home which he called Slash Cottage, as it was within the so-called Slashes of Hanover and close to Slash Church. Sir John Clay, the first Pastor of Winn’s Baptist Chapel, died and was buried along the path to the mill, next to the grave of his father-in-law George Hudson. Hudson’s Widow Sarah Elizabeth (Jennings) Hudson died in 1782 and was interred next to her husband and John Clay, her son-in-law. The mill on the Hudson-Clay property likely survived throughout 1781 as it was not visible from the dwelling or the graveyard, and further, Lord Cornwallis had written from Steele’s Ordinary on Ridge Road on June 1, 1781:
It is hoped that no soldiers will destroy the bolting Cloths or anything belonging to the mills of the country, as it is of great importance to the Army, having them fit for use.
