Looking for Wesley Hudson of Owen County KY

Journal by jqvalle

Wesley Hudson was listed in the 1850 US Census as living in Owen County, KY at age 40 years with his wife Mahala or Mahulda with children Mary, John, Lucinda, James, William and Thomas. Their marriage date is possibly 12/28/1838. They had another son born in 1861 or 1862 named Warner. Mahala or Mahulda was listed on the 1870 US Census in Owen County, KY as Hulda, head of household with Warner age 9 years. I do not have a death date or place for either Wesley or Mahala (Mahulda). I have some sketchy information about Wesley's father, possibly named William who lived in Virginia before bringing his family to KY. I believe Wesley may have been born in Virginia. Mahala or Mahulda's maiden name was possibly Skiles. I have been unable to determine which Skiles family in Owen County, KY to which she belonged. She was Wesley's third wife, he and his first wife Sarah Bohannon of Shelby County KY (marriage date 2/22/1827, having divorced. His second wife was Martha Thomas with whom he also had children (Benjamin Franklin, Margaret and Sallie). I do not know what happened to Martha.

Where did you find the information on Martha Thomas? Benjamin is my great grandfather. I have been trying to find some information on this side of the family.

I found this information on Ancestry.com. A cousin of mine put this info in her tree on Ancestry. Evidently she had family information from a bible or from family stories. The date of Benjamin's birth appears to occur during the time Wesley Hudson was married to Mahulda (Hulda) Skiles. Benjamin is listed in the 1860 census as being 6 years old and living with Hulda and Wesley Hudson. I have not been able to find any other reference to Martha Thomas in census records or other trees. If you would like, I can get in touch with my cousin and see if she will correspond with you about what information she has.
