    Lane Cemetery 
    • Wesley Hudson has a Confederate headstone that is incorrect on almost every count - birth year, death year, and name are all incorrect. The unit he served with also appears incorrect.

      BURIAL: Wesley is buried in the Lane Cemetery, just off Pumpkinvine Rd., GA 120, south of Dallas, GA. Horace Lane, in the 1980's, did much work to rehabilitate the cemetery. In doing this, he placed new stones on the graves of Wesley and Betsy Hudson. Owing to his confusion over Wesley Hudson's name, the name on the stone is incorrectly listed as John Wesley Hudson.

      MILITARY:

      Overview

      Wesley Hudson was born in SC around 1808. At some point, he (and maybe his family) moved to Georgia. Wesley Hudson appears in Georgia by the time of his marriage to Elizabeth Landers in 1831. It is not clear where in Georgia he first landed, or where he was married. By 1840, he is found in Dekalb County, GA. Wesley Hudson married Elizabeth (Betsy Ann) Landers in 1831 and they had twelve children. Throughout the 1850’s and 1860’s, Wesley bought and sold land in the 14th and 17th districts of Dekalb County, which became Fulton County in 1853. This land was primarily located to the west of present day Georiga Tech and just to the west of the Fulton County Prison and Animal Control. Sometime between 1862 and 1866, Wesley and family moved from Fulton County to Paulding County, Georgia. They located in the Pumpkinvine community, just to the south of Dallas, Ga, along present day GA 120. Betsy Ann died in 1884. And Wesley died in October of 1889.

      Connected Families

      In 1850, Wesley appears in Dekalb County surrounded by other Hudsons,many of whom are likely to be related. In the Casey's District, there are several Hudson families. In particular, we find in dwelling 30, Notley Hudson (age 32), in dwelling 36, Catharine Hudson (age 30, inthe household of Zilpha Wood), dwelling 92, Wesley Hudson (age 42),dwelling 94, Jane Hudson (age 60), dwelling 95, David Hudson (age 25). Farther along, in dwelling 111, we find Calvin Hudson (age 21). In addition to the families named Hudson, there are other related families here. In dwelling 93, Laura W. Carter, daughter of Wesley Hudson is listed with her husband Nelson. In dwelling 98, Rosanna Leachman is listed with her husband Matthew. According to the IGI, there is a marriage record in Jackson Co., Georgia in 1839 for Matthew Leachman and Rosiana Hudson. It would make sense that that Jane Hudson is the matriarch of this group and that at least Wesley,Notley, David are all her sons. Maybe. Or maybe they are cousins.In any case, they appear to be connected.

      By 1860, in addition to these families, we also find a Giles Hudson and a Manning Hudson close at hand that could be connected as well. Manning Hudson appears to move into Campbell County, so maybe he’s not quite as connected.

      Rhoda Hudson married John G. Wood in 1866 in Paulding County.However, there is a John G Wood enumerated in 1850 just a few dwellings away from Wesley Hudson in the household of Elias Wood.This could well be another connection.

      David Hudson married an Elizabeth Wood in 1845 in this district. She did not live long and David remarried in 1848. If it could be shown that both John G. and Elizabeth were from the same family, this would help with showing some kind of connection between David’s family andthat of Wesley. It is known that David moved on to Alabama in about 1855.

      Clearly, all of these Hudson families are somehow connected. They also intertwine with the neighbor families. More research is required to sort out the ties. The fact that all Dekalb County records priorto 1842 were lost in a fire hampers our ability to trace this more efficiently.

      On the Landers side, there are some connections floating around as well that I will mention, though these will be followed in more depth in the Landers section. In 1860, Rebecca Landers, age 55, is enumerated with Wesley's family. After some confusion over the relation ship to Rebecca, the 1880 census shows her listed as an aunt, presumably Elizabeth’s aunt. And she is listed as single, so perhaps she is a spinster sister to Elizabeth’s father.

      Names

      There has been some confusion over Wesley’s name. The tradition passed along in the Arkansas branch of the family was that his name was George Wesley Hudson. However, his tombstone, which was placed in the 1990’s by Howard Lane of Dallas, GA, reads John Wesley Hudson.Wesley himself is always referred to as just Wesley in any documents found to date. He confounds the problem somewhat by naming two sons after himself: John Wesley who went to Arkansas, and George Wesley who remained in Dallas. It seems likely that George Wesley was also called Wesley during his life. That would lend some credence to Wesley’s true name being George Wesley. However, since he himself was always called Wesley, until this can be resolved, he will be referred to as Wesley.

      Pumpkinvine Baptist Church

      One of the main places where Wesley’s name can be traced is in thechurch minutes for Pumpkinvine Baptist Church. Over a period of some 20 years, the Hudsons appear quite frequently. Initially, when Wesley joins the church, he is referred to as Wesley Hudson. A year later,in 1867, a J.W. Hudson takes a position on the church committee. This could have been Wesley’s son, John Wesley, since he was of age and had not yet left for Arkansas, but in light of the fact that Wesley was still around, it seems much more likely to refer to him. Most of the other references to him are clearly to W. Hudson or Wesley Hudson and are pretty much unambiguous, since his son was called John and his younger son, George Wesley, called Wesley, was not yet of age.

      Wesley Hudson served on a number of church committees and was often called upon to visit and talk with church members who had gone astray and then to act to either include or exclude them from the church.He, himself, became the target of this same kind of activity. On 14 Feb 1874, Wesley Hudson acknowledged before the assembly that he had been drinking too much. Apparently this was resolved, since he was not excluded from the fellowship.

      On 16 Dec 1876, Wesley Hudson and Matilda Moore were excluded from the church for living in sin. At first, I believed this must be a clue that Elizabeth and Rebecca had died and left Matilda and Wesley alone. But, the 1880 census shows both of them alive and well. I do not understand quite what would have caused this exclusion without also estranging Elizabeth. I believe at that time that Wesley moved his membership to Dallas Baptist Church. On 17 Nov 1877, the church recevied a petition for restoration from J.W. Hudson. John Wesley Hudson had already gone to Arkansas by this time, so this is somewhat confusing. Wesley had been excluded from the fellowship and would need a letter of restoration before he could transfer his letter of membership to another church. But, if this is a reference to Wesley,it goes back to the confusion over his name.

      According to Franklin Garrett's Necrology, at one time, Wesley Hudson owned all of the property around the present (1932) site of Simsville in Fulton Co. More interestingly, Garrett describes the origins of the City of Atlanta, grown up around the "Terminus" of the Western &Atlantic Railroad. Wesley Hudson is listed as one of the pioneers inthe area to sell land for the initial right-of-way from the railroad's crossing of the Chattahoochee River to its Terminus in Land Lot 78,District 14, approximately at the current intersection of Foundry St.and the W&ARR.
