I'm looking for Jack D Hudson, b ca 1885 in Kennedale, Tarrant, TX. He was married to my grandmother, Lillian May Williams in 1910, and had four children - Lola Mary, James O, Theda L, and my mother, Malvina Phoebe Hudson. Hearsay is that he spent time in Jacksboro, Jack Co with his cousins and brothers Abb, Les, and Ben. I believe that Abb was Albert who was married and had only one child, Mary Ruth or Mary Jane. I haven't been able to determine who his other brothers were. When Jack and my grandmother, Lillian, divorced ca 1924, he married again to 'Edna' - previous name unknown. Jack's occupation when he married Lillian was 'odd jobs'. Then I heard that he worked an auto dealership sometime in the early 1900's. Does any of this sound familiar to you? If it does, would you please contact me at my e-mail address - I need information. Jack has been an elusive person. Thanks so much, Venee.
