The Hudsons that I am speaking of are black.  Based on family reunion pictures you can tell that they are decendants of mix blood.   Most of them are very fair skinned.  I am a direct decendent of Louis Prince who by the way is Hattie (Prince) Hudson and Gracie (Prince) Coleman father.  Gracie is my father's grandmother, thus making Louise his great grandfather.  I'll check with some of my cousins and see if I can get Horrace's father and mother's name.  By the way I am also researching the Maury surname.  My dad is a Maury and I am having a problem finding my granddad's family line.  I was however able to trace Joe A. Maury from the Colored Troops
regiment in Mississippi.  My grandfather is originally from Shaqualak and he may still have relative in that area, any help you can give me will be greatly appreciated. Email....... Paula Posted Jan. 28, 1999
