(FYI Cross posted on New England Genealogy group; it was suggested I also post it here) Hi All :) I am trying to find more information of James Hudson, who came to Boston in 1642. His wife was Ann ____ and they had James Hudson who married Mary ____. James Hudson (jr) and Mary had Eleazer Hudson who married Deborah Ford; they had, Judith Hudson (who was a twin), Judith married Jonathan Butman (Bootman) and they had a son, Jonathan Butman (Bootman) who married Hannah Griffin. Jonathan and Hannah had Judith Butman who married 1st Peter Barren (aka LeBarron) who died sometime during the Revolution (I cannot find evidence that they had children?); Judith then married in Gloucester, Obadiah Witham; they removed to Portland, Maine where they had my 3rd Great Grandfather, John B. Witham. (other researchers have cited that Judith and Obadiah had other children (Lydia?) but I cannot find any records for them. Obadiah died right before John was born. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less
