"Edwin S. Hudson, son of Seth C. and Lucy Hudson, was born in this town July 2 1842. When a youth, he thirsted for knowledge, was a close student, and improved every opportunity of acquiring information. To the call of his country he gave an attentive ear, and enlisted in the Tenth Vermont Regiment, Company C, August 2, 1862.
