Bio and Links
Bio Photo I am intrigued with researching my ancestors and enjoy helping others with their research as well. I grew up in California and Arizona and moved to northwestern Arkansas in 1984. When I began researching, I was very surprised to learn my grandfather (whom I had never met) was born in Washington County, Arkansas, and then moved to the Oklahoma City area. From then on I was hooked on genealogy research.

RE: Rettie Hudson
The links on Rettie's memorial are in the correct order, so the edit is not right. I didn't want to have to deny the edit, if you will just delete it.JD

Rettie Hudson
I've added the spouse links for Frank Hudson as first and James Mallory as second husband.
If I accepted the edit as is, then James would be listed as first. That is why I asked to remove the edit. Thanks for getting my attention on this so I would dig deeper and add more information to her bio. JD

James Mallory
Rootsweb: ID: I59082
Name: James Franklin Mallory
Sex: M
Birth: 2 SEP 1876 in Salem, Missouri
Death: 1 SEP 1965 in Joplin, Jasper County, Missouri
Burial: Antioch Cemetery, Everton, Dade County, Missouri


Family members and friends knew James as 'Coot'. While it is said that Coot was born in Salem, Fulton County, Arkansas, he was actually born in Missouri (county unknown). Coot died at 88. His Funeral Home Record showed:

"b. 2 Sep 1876, AR, d.1 Sep 1965, Jasper Co, g. Antioch Cemetery, "Laborer" h/o Gladys: s/o Wesley and Esther Gipson Children: Hulcie, Stockton, Ca. Ted, Fresno, Ca., Boyde Oroville, Wa., Leona Gillaspy, Everton, Mo., Clara Withrow, Joplin, Mo., P earl Watkins and Lemmie Chadwick, Fresno, Ca., Cleta Pierson, Council Bluffs, Ia.

Coot first married Fannie Ellen Funk and when she passed away he married Retti Hudson and helped raise five of her children. Then, when he was 70, James was married for a third time, to a gal whose given name was Gladys on April 20th 1947.

Rettie Hudson
Rhetta Byrket first married Abram Frank Hudson 7 Jul 1901. I haven't found a death certificate or a memorial for him.
She married James Mallory 11 Apr 1918. They must have gotten a divorce by 1947, he married a woman named Gladys. Maybe Rhetta took the name Hudson back and that's why she is buried under that name.
I have added the marriage information for Rhettie to her memorial.
Please remove the edit as findagrave has it listed incorrectly. If you find any more information on Abram Frank Hudson, death certificate or burial site please let me know. JD

I just reviewed the added info and find she was only 14 years old when she died. I should be able to rectify this at the cemetery.
