    Died Feb. 12, 1897 in the town of Milton at the residence of her son, Mr. B. F. Hudson, Mrs. Lucinda Hudson in the eighty-fifth year of her age. Deceased was born in Chatham, N. Y., in 1812 and was married to David B. Hudson on 1837; came to Wisconsin in 1844 and settled in the town of Milton, having previously spent several years in Western New York.
    She was the mother of eight children, six of them still live; viz., John W. of Madison, Louis B. of Aurora, Ill., Albert C., Elijah and B. F. of Milton, and George W. of Minneapolis.
    Some five years since deceased was left a widow, since which time she has made her home with her son B. F. on the old homestead.
    Great changes have come to this community and state during her stay here. At her coming the country was new, the soil was in its native condition, producing grass and flowers. But few homes were erected and but little of the soil was made to produce the necessities of life. But at her decease cities and villages have grown up and the fields under the hands of the husbandman are made to produce an abundance for the comfort of man. Mother Hudson has done her part in bringing about this great change.
    She was a woman little in stature but possessed of a great loving heart always ready to make sacrifices for the comfort of those to whom she was called to minister.
    Thus one by one the early settlers are passing away. Monday the funeral services were conducted at her late residence and her remains laid by the side of the companion of her youth in the Milton cemetery, Rev. W. T. Millar officiating.
