The descendants of the Rev. Silas Alexander Hudson (1819-1907) will meet Sept. 5 for the 79th consecutive year. The Hudson-Jones Reunion will convene at 1 p.m. for a potluck lunch at the old New Columbus Schoolhouse, now the private residence of Bill and Faye Prewitt, at 16065 New Columbus Road/KY Rt. 607.
Family memories and genealogy will be shared, and organizers are hopeful that representatives from each of Hudson’s nine descending families will attend. All descendants, and others interested in the history of the Hudson family, are invited.
Lilly Hudson Cooke organized the first reunion of Silas’ descendants in 1932. It was decided early on to call the annual gathering “The Hudson-Jones Reunion” because two of Silas’ daughters married Joneses, and thus, many of the second and third generation carried the surname Jones.
