Orange Co., NC record showing Chamberlain and John Hudson in Orange Co., 1784. From, "Orange County, N.C., Abstracts of the Minutes of the Inferior Court of Pleas & Quarter Sessions, 1777-1788," Alma Cheek Redden, reprinted Southern Historical Press, Inc., 1991:

pg. 27

24th May 1784 Court

"Ordered following Jury or any 12 lay out & mark the most convenient way from Shallow Fork of Haw River to the County Line towards Fayetville, to wit, Wm. Oneal, Wm. Gwinn, John Hatson [my note: Hudson?], Samuel James, James Ozburn, John Gwinn, Chamberlain Hutson, Anthony Cable, Henry Straden, Christopher Holt, Thos. H. Perkins, Jno. Albright, John Holt, jun., Lodowick Albright, Mich'l Cockletrees, Lewis Garner & make return next Court."

This places the Hudsons on the Haw River in Orange Co. w/ the Gwins. This part of Orange Co. broke off to form Alamance Co. in 1849. This Haw River area of Alamance/Orange is in the nw quadrant. Orange Co. was a part of Granville Co.

Couldn't find any Hudsons in the earlier Orange Co. court abstract book (1752-1766.) The records for 1767 to May 1777 are missing.

Did she have a brother who was the Rev. James Gwin also in Sumner Co., TN? (Yes)

b ca 1757, see IGI records for SC. This James Gwin had a dau. also named Margaret b. 1800 who m. Alexander de La Plaunche Duval in Sumner Co. in 1818.

Ref. see Duval records.

The Hudson Family Association has her father as Edwin Gwin.
