32. Margaret CUNNINGHAM (Johanna HUDSON , Margaret FINUCANE , John? ) was born about 1 Oct 1858 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She was christened on 3 Oct 1858 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. She died on 1 May 1925 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

Sponsors at Margaret's baptism were William Hudson and Mary Hudson.

Margaret married John HANRAHAN, son of Patrick (Paddy) HANRAHAN and Margaret CONNOR, on 22 Feb 1887 in Moyvane, Co. Kerry. John was born about 1851 in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes (Moyvane), Co. Kerry. He died on 20 Feb 1919 in Kilbaha, Moyvane, Co. Kerry.

John's father, Paddy, was probably a brother of Michael Hanrahan who married Margaret's aunt, also named Margaret Cunningham.   

Witnesses to the marriage of Margaret and John were Myles Kearney and Kate Hanrahan. After their marriage, Margaret and John lived near the Scraghan River in the Gale Valley, just below Kilbaha. They later moved to Kilbaha.

According to the 1911 census Margaret and John had 12 children born alive, but only eight were alive in 1911 (all the children listed in the 1901 census were alive in 1911).

I was told John and Margaret died within a week of each other in the flu epidemic of 1918. However John died in 1919, the cause of death being "probably heart failure", and Margaret died in 1925 of a cerebral haemorrhage.

Marriage Notes:

William grew up in South Philadelphia. He graduated with a degree in civil engineering from Princeton University in 1914. During World War II he served as an ensign in the Navy, after which he returned to engineering work. In 1923 he settled in Owings Mills, Maryland; and in 1926 he switched career and went into investment banking, eventually setting up his own company. He retired in 1959.

William's son Bill remembered his parents taking him and his brother Paul on a trip to Europe as children (from passenger lists on the Ancestry wbsite I have since discovered that this was in 1929). They visited Ireland where he remembers meeting relatives, including members of the Tralee Hudson family (who lived on Strand St.). William later named his newly-built home on Caves Road in Owings Mills 'Tralee' after his relatives' home town.

William (Bill) Joseph HUDSON was born on 17 Dec 1922 in Baltimore, Maryland. He died on 27 Aug 2008 in West Palm Beach, Florida. He was buried in Our Lady Queen of Peace Cemetery, Royal Palm Beach, Florida.

Bill grew up in Baltimore and finished high school there in 1941, after which he attended Princton University. His studies were interrupted when he enlisted in the U.S. Navy in December 1942. Having a talent for languages, he was sent to study at the Navy's Japanese Language School in Boulder, Colorado, graduating in March 1944. He was subsequently sent to the Pacific island of Peleliu to assist in the transportation of Japanese prisoners of war to Pearl Harbor and survived an attack on his ship by Japanese planes on the way back to the U.S. Back in Pearl Harbour, Bill was put to work compiling a two-volume dictionary of Japanese military and technical terms, a job that took him eight months. After the Japanese surrender in August 1945 Bill was sent to Japan where he was involved in repatriation of Japanese prisoners of war. He then spent two months in Guam before returning home in February 1946. He resumed his studies at Princeton and in June 1947 graduated with a degree in linguistics, after which he entered the financial securities business as a salesman, working with his father. This was followed in 1952 by employment as a stock analyst with financier Robert R. Young. Bill spent his later years as a private analyst and investor in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Bill spent more than half a century tracing his Hudson family history. Beginning his research in 1956, he visited Ireland 29 times, succeeding in tracing his Hudson ancestors back to the 18th century and uncovering numerous branches of the family in Ireland, the United States and Australia. Bill put his findings together in a number of volumes, copies of which he donated to Tralee and Listowel libraries in Co. Kerry. His works comprise:

The Hudsons of County Kerry and their Descendants (in the National Library of Ireland in Dublin as well as in Tralee and Listowel)
The Hudsons of Tralee (more recent than the The Hudsons of County Kerry above; Tralee and Listowel only)
The Hudsons of Kilbaha North (more recent than the The Hudsons of County Kerry; Tralee and Listowel only) and
The Hudsons of Ballyeagh (more recent than the The Hudsons of County Kerry; Tralee and Listowel only)

Bill also researched the history of ownership of land in Kilbaha, the townland where his Hudson ancestors settled, and the results of this study (title unknown to me at present) may also be viewed in Tralee and Listowel libraries. Note that advance notice needs to be given to the above libraries in order to take a look at these works.

I will be forever grateful to Bill for his generosity and help with my Hudson research.
