William Hudson Family, ca. 1900


This photo, taken ca. 1900 in Pulaski County, Kentucky, features members of the William and Josephine Hudson family. The submitter writes: "Both William (seated in the rocking chair at right) and Josephine (standing at the center of photo) were born in the 1860s. Others in this photo are Nannie Hudson, my mother, standing at far right; Nannie's brothers, John, Steve, Will, and Hector; and Nannie's sister, whose name I cannot remember, is seated at left. This cabin was the old Hudson homeplace, located near the Civil War battle site at Fishing Creek or Mill Springs. Nannie was born in November 1884, and died in 1978 at age 94. She was 16 years old when this photo was taken. Two other children were born after this photo was taken."
