ELIJAH HUDSON & MARGARET DEAVER
married on 28 Feb 1828 in Pocahontas Co., Virginia
Elijah and Margaret are my 4th great granduncle and aunt. He is the son of Richard H. Hudson and Elizabeth Redding/Redden. She is the daughter of James Deaver and Sally (maiden name unknown) or Catherine Bird. There is conflicting evidence as to her name.
According to the West Virginia, Marriages Index, 1785-1971, they were married in 1828, in Pocahontas County in what would have been Virginia at the time.
NOTE: West Virginia separated from Virginia and became it’s own state in 1863.
Spouse's Name:Elijah Hudson
Marriage Place:Pocahontas, West Virginia, United States
Here is the image from the marriage register.
Elijah & Margaret are indicated in red. I do notice that two other surnames (indicated in green) from our family show up on this page. McClintick and another Deaver. I need to find out if they are connected.
Elijah and Margaret had 11 known children: William, Harriet, Laura, Warwick B., Davis, Geo. M.D., Nancy Jane, Isabella Susan, Paul McNeel, John Lechter and Sarah. I have a LOT more research yet to do on this branch of our family.
I have information (not verified), that Elijah died in 1881 at the age of 79, and Margaret died in 1889 at the age of 82. They may be buried in the Hudson Cemetery, Green Bank, Pocahontas, West Virginia. Here are links to the memorials, Elijah #41809590 and Margaret #79239034
One source used for some of this information is the book Historical Sketches of Pocahontas County, West Virginia, by William Thomas Price, published in 1901.
