Hudson Photos



Patrick, pictured on the left, and Frank Hudson were sons of Richard Hudson and Margaret Finucane, and brothers of Richard and Jeremiah (see previous photos). Patrick was born in 1838, possibly in Tralee, Co. Kerry, while Frank was born about 1831, probably in Duagh, Co. Kerry. The family eventually settled in Kilbaha, Newtownsandes, Co. Kerry. In 1853 Patrick and Frank emigrated together to the United States. Patrick was only 15 years of age.

Patrick joined the US Marine Corps where he spent his entire career, which included service in the Civil War. In 1885 he married Anne Carroll whose parents were from Co. Wexford. Patrick and Anna had four children and lived in Philadelphia. Patrick died in 1914.

Frank also saw service in the Civil War. Later, in 1869 in Philadelphia, he married Margaret Finnegan, believed to have been a cousin (her family changed their name from Finucane to Finnigan after their arrival in the U.S.). Frank and Margaret had seven children. Frank worked as a plasterer in Philadelphia and died there in 1898.
