John HUDSON was born in Aug 1832 in probably Duagh, Co. Kerry. He died on 20 Apr 1907 in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. He was buried in Riverside Cemetery, Oshkosh.
John emigrated to the United States in 1852, living initially in Philadelphia before settling in Oshkosh in 1857. It is known that he worked as a coachman for a Dr. Eaton in Oshkosh and for the North Side Hospital, also in Oshkosh. Apparently John visited Ireland 11 times after moving to the States, his last visit being in 1877 during his his mother's final illness (he is listed as the informant on her death certificate). His grandniece Esther Peil (née Hudson) of Racine, Wisconsin, remembered John as a tall thin man with a beard.
John never married. He died in the Oshkosh poor house where it appears he had been living for a number of years (he was listed as a pauper there in the 1900 census).

'unknown' HUDSON (female) was born in Co. Kerry. She died.
We know of 'unknown's existence from a letter written by Tom Sheehan (1900-1981) of Kilbaha in 1981 to his relative Bill Hudson of Florida. In the letter Tom writes "Edward Hudson had 2 sisters, one was married to Brian Cunningham, Johanna, and she had a sister that died very young." Unfortunately we have no further information on this sister.
