St. Mary Parish
Louisiana, USA
Death: Aug. 19, 1905
Washington County
Texas, USA

Caroline is the daughter of Benjamin F. and Mary Ann Gordy Hudson. She was born and grew up at Bayou Sale, La, where her father had sugar plantations. She had 6 brothers and 3 sisters. They are to my knowledge:

Elizabeth Hudson Gardner 1840 1927
Charles Hudson 1845
Francis Benjamin "Frank" Hudson 1846 1919
Mary Ann Hudson 1848 1923
Florence Evelyn Hudson Mahon 1850 1936
John Gideon Hudson 1853 1880
Everett Hudson 1855
Blount Robertson Hudson 1858 1889
Benjamin, Jr. Hudson 1859 1901

On 20 Mar 1860, she married William Henry Bassett, Jr. They had 2 daughters and 3 sons. They are:

Mary Bassett 1861
William Henry, III Bassett 1863
Caroline "Carrie" Bassett 1865 1946
Benjamin H Bassett 1866
Livingston Bassett 1870 -

I have records that show William was serving in Louisiana during the Civil War and died from an injury sustained there. That is probably why he's buried in another location than his family. Caroline is my great grand aunt.

Be at peace eternally Aunt Caroline...
