GEORGE FRANKLIN HUDSON and 1st wife SARAH ANN CAIN are my husband's great-great-grandparents. His next ancestor was Charles Cain Hudson, Sr.

George was 83 years old when he died. He is buried next to his first wife Mrs. Sarah Ann Cain Hudson.

Hudsonia, Georgia is now the community of Grange in Jefferson County on Highway 88 E. Hudsonia was pretty much destroyed during General Sherman's march to the sea during the War Of Northern Aggression.

Our "Great Great Grandfather Tree" from your oak tree is doing well in our back yard. I can't wait for it to start producing acorns. This way your memory lives on in our hearts. God bless,
