Hudson Photos

Jeremiah Hudson


Jeremiah Hudson, brother of Richard (see previous photo) was one of the eight children of Richard Hudson and Margaret Finucane. He was born about 1830, probably in Duagh, Co. Kerry. It's believed he may have spent part of his childhood in Ballyeagh (near Ballybunion), Co. Kerry and in Tralee, Co. Kerry before the family eventually settled in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry around the 1840s. Jeremiah emigrated to the United States in 1860.

After about four years in the States Jeremiah married Martha McLoughlin who was born either in Ireland or in Pennsylvania. The eldest three of their five children were born in New Jersey before the family settled in Chicago where Jeremiah worked as a plasterer and where he died in 1905.
