In the death of James W Hudson, which occurred last Monday evening at his home a few miles west of this place, our community and Warren County, lost a good honorable citizen, who was esteemed as much as such by all who knew him. Mr Hudson was born in Culpeper County, Virginia, march 22, 1822, and when nine years of age, he came with his parents to Warren County, where he has ever since resided. He united with the Baptist church and was always a true conscientious christian. By industry and practical judgement he accumulated a well earned competency farming, which enabled him to retire and take life easy in his declining days. He was aged 71 years, 4 months, and 2 days, and on October 17th, 1844, was married to Miss Eliza B Reynolds, who now survives him. By this happy union, they were blessed with 15 children - 11 of whom survive him and all are grown. Tuesday afternoon short services were held at the house of Rev. Farry after which his remains were brought to this place and interred in the cemetery, witnessed by the bereaved relatives and a large concourse of sorrowing friends. Our sympathy with the many friends goes out toward the widow and children. The pall-bearers were Messrs. W Kent, A Hinz, Thos. Archer, Geo. Bast, J V Hayes, and John Brandt.

Enlisted CSA 4/17/1861 in Company G, 7th VA Infantry, Kempers Brigade, Pickett's Division. Wounded Gettysburg 7/3/1863.
