Bio and Links
Bio Photo Started doing this after the death of my first parent. I found it impossible to find people to tell them of her passing. Then experienced a letter to her, 2 yr after the passing.

This got me to wondering what else I didn't know about my own family and so started digging and running into relatives that were doing the same. I started in 1994, but they had been doing it before that and kept me encouraged.

I've met so many wonderful people in my search, and love the stories that have come from it. I'm still learning but will share what I have if you want to come along on the journey

The cross in my profile (2015) is in memory of all the resting places not respected @ St Joseph Church Cemetery and what the future has in stored for the remaining markers

RE: Matthew A. Hudson/Hutson
Yes, I am a cousin! My Grandmother was the daughter of Smith Hudson who was the son of Richard Hudson. Richard was the first person to come to Paris, Portage County, OH and settle there. I have researched all the way back to a Matthew Hudson, b. 1736 & d. 1799 in Blair County, PA. I'm still researching Matthew to see where he was born and anything I can find on his parents. So far, no luck, but I will continue to search.

Matthew A. Hudson/Hutson
Hello. I am researching Matthew A. Hutson/Hudson and was wondering where you came up with the birth date of 1736 and if you have a place of birth. Thanks.

RE: Charles W Rust and Eliza Benson Rust
Hello cousin,

Here is a link to Eliza Benson Rust's profile on my tree on I am not sure if you need an account to access it. I do have the 1880 US Census attached to her also. It looks like the 2nd Josephine Rust is a granddaughter, but not sure who she belongs to. Let me know if I need to make a copy of the 1900 census.

Charles W Rust and Eliza Benson Rust
The following is copied from the Find-A-Grave profile of Charles W Rust
Find A Grave Memorial# 22836627

Birth: Jan. 30, 1833
Ohio, USA
Death: 1905
Adams County
Illinois, USA

Eliza Benson Rust (1832 - 1905)

Charles H Rust (1858 - 1913)*
Minnie Rust (1882 - 1883)*
Baby Rust (1887 - 1887)*
Warnie Rust (1892 - 1893)*
Pearl Rust Langdon (1895 - 1923)*

Now this is what I have found:

According to 1900 US Census Eliza Benson Rust is the mother of 5 children and 5 children living. And from my research I have found these names which are listed here:

John W Rust 18541922
George Washington Rust 18561927
Charles H Rust 18581913
Sarah Minerva Rust 18631936
Josephine I Rust 1867

According to the 1900 US Census for John he had lost 1 child and George Rust had lost 2. Pearl is the daughter of Charles H Rust.

Does everyone here agree? Thanks.
