Thanks for your response, Keith,
Besides John Hutson's 1850 household in Randolph County NC, I have just this deed of gift in Randolph County NC, to Susannah Hutson, by her father, Robert Wilson, of Moore County, NC.
Do you think Susannah's father fits into the family you are studying? I would love to have both parents and siblings for her. That may give me a clue to where Philip Edward Hudson/Hutson and his family were for the 1870 census. I found them in Henderson Co. TN, for 1860. They were back in Randolph County NC during the Civil War, but returned to live in Decatur Co. TN, by 1880. I need to confirm two brothers, Robert Lee Hutson/Hudson and John Thomas Hutson/Hudson as children of this Philip Edward Hutson/Hudson to be certain this is my line. They would both be in his 1870 household.
