The descendants of the Rev. Silas Alexander Hudson will meet at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 2. The reunion will begin with a potluck lunch at the old New Columbus Schoolhouse, which is now the private residence of Bill and Faye Prewitt, 16065 New Columbus Road/KY Rt. 607, near Corinth.
The Hudson-Jones Reunion is thought to be the oldest, on-going family gathering in Kentucky that is documented with annual records. Lilly Hudson Cooke organized the first reunion in 1932 and the family has met on the Sunday before Labor Day each year since. Several of Hudson’s daughters married into the Jones family and so it was decided to call the gathering the Hudson-Jones Reunion.
Hudson was born on the Scott/Franklin County line near the communities of Switzer and Stamping Ground in 1819. He moved to Eagle Creek near Corinth in 1844 where he lived until his death in 1907. Organizers of the event are hopeful that representatives from each of Hudson’s nine descending lines will attend.
All descendants and others interested in the history of the Hudson family, are urged to attend. Teresa King is president of this year’s event. For more information, call Georgia Green Stamper at 859-264-0465 or via e-mail at Georgia at georgiagreenstamper.com.
