    • DEATH: "Paulding New Era - A Sudden Death - Written for the New Era

      Old Aunt Betsy Hudson, the wife of old Uncle Wesley Hudson, on the 16th of this inst. after eating her supper as heartily as usual went into the other room and took her seat by the fire and stuck her feet up to warm them and told some of the family to hand her the camphor. The old man reached on the mantle and gave her the camphor bottle. She swallowed a little of it and it seemed to strangle her. The old man turned off to weaken the camphor a little and she was dead in five minutes. She was an old mother that every body liked that was acquainted with her. She had been a consistent and orderly member of the church for something like fifty years and was a devoted Christian ;and while she is dead here and taken from our midst we believe that she is alive spiritually though we all sympathize with old Uncle Wesley and all the bereaved family." - Paulding New Era, 21 Feb 1884

      Some people have claimed that Elizabeth Landers died as early as 1870. In fact, her tombstone says her death was ca. 1875, but it is a replacement tombstone. The fact of the matter is that she is enumerated with Wesley in the 1880 census living in Fulton County. A notice of her death is found in the Feb 21, 1884 edition of the Paulding New Era newspaper. It says that Elizabeth Hudson, wife of Wesley Hudson died on Saturday, the 16th of February, 1884.

      Death certificate of J.W. Hudson says his mother's name was Susan Landers.
