ANDREW J. HUDSON. Although Jackson Township, Newton County, Arkansas, is well known for the push, energy and enterprise of its farmers and stock-raisers, Andrew J. Hudson stands in the van in that direction, and through industrious and honorable efforts is now the owner of a good farm of 300 acres with 00 acres under cultivation. He is a native of this township, born December 14, 1853, and here grew to manhood and received his education. In the year 1875 he was married to Miss Mary M. Dupee, a native of Morgan County, Tennessee, and the daughter of William and Mariah Dupee, natives of Tennessee. The parents were married in the latter State, but about 1858 they came to Newton County, Arkansas, where Mrs. Dupee received her final summons. Mr. Dupee is still living and is a prominent farmer of Boone County. He is a worthy and earnest member of the Missionary Baptist Church and a man highly esteemed in the community.

To Mr. and Mrs. Hudson have been born an interesting family of nine children: Nancy, William Samuel, Letha Penina, James Carroll, Columbus M., Wiley Andrew, John Floyd, Luella Ann and Grover Cleveland. After the war Mr. Hudson lived near Mount Parthenon for five years and then moved to his present farm where he has resided since. He is one of the most extensive farmers and stockraisers of the county and one of the county’s substantial and worthy citizens. Industrious and enterprising he merits and has the respect and esteem of all. Socially he is a Master Mason, a member of Buffalo Lodge No. 366. He is next to the youngest child born to the marriage of the late Samuel Hudson (see sketch) . In his political views he is a stanch advocate of Democratic principles, and his first presidential vote was cast for Grover Cleveland in 1892.
