I am looking for Dudleys.
My Grandpa Dudley always said his family came from Old Virginia and were Black Welsh.
He told me just once that his Grandma was a fullblood Indian.
The line following that I have established is from the Federal Census Records;
Preston Dudley b. about 1809 in SC living in VA m.Eleanor ? b.about 1800>
son Hiram Dudley b. about 1830 in VA living in VA m. Hannah ? (maybe Wallace) b. about 1838 in VA >
son John Harvey Dudley (Harvey) b. 6/8/1854 in VA lived in Cabel Co. WVa d. (in IN probably)
m. Minerva Johnson b. about 1856 in OH d. Kitts Hill Lawrence Co OH marrage at Leatherwood, Lawrence Co. OH>
son William Harvey Wallace Elsides Dudley b. 1875 Leatherwood Lawrence Co. OH d. 1950-51 Marion, Marion Co. OH m. Lucinda Corbin b. Leatherwood, OH d. (both) buried Myrtle Ridge Cem. Lawrence Co, OH >
Norris P. Dudley
William O. Dudley
Leafa Dudley Rife
Charles G. Dudley
Mayme Dudley Lust
Wendel Marion (changed to Patrick) Dudley
Naomi A. Dudley Nichols (my mother)
The names of the children and dates from the progression of the Census Data match up so far as I can determine but, I have proven this line no further than I show.
I have a portrait of ggfather John Harvey and gfather William taken in New Albany, Delaware Co,. IN circa 1900.
Try my e-mail once again- firstname.lastname@example.org
I tried to send you an e but am not sure of your e-addy.
Please send me a good e-addy as I have a few things that may help you.
I don't like this posting thing for some theoritic/assumptive items. Some folks take assumptions to the bank.
Looking to hear from you,
Brammer, Corbin, Asher, Web, Williams, Johnson, Earles and Bowman are the major associated familys that I am familiar with.
There was a lot of migration of Dudleys that moved in the general direction of SC, TN to VA then WV then OH then to IN.
