About The Hudson/Williams Family Tree
Greetings Dear Family,

WHAT A BLAST!!  That's the best way to describe the HUDSON FAMILY REUNION recently held in 
Schaumburg, Illinois on July 12-15 2018.  Over 50 family members attended to share in the 
celebration.  States represented were Illinois, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Alabama, Missouri, Georgia, 
Michigan, Wisconsin, Tennessee, Florida, Virginia, California and 2 cousins even flew in from 

Thursday night was our paint and sip party where everyone expressed their artistic abilities on 
wine glasses, beer steins and rocks.  We ate, laughed and got to know each other.  At Friday's 
picnic we danced, played games and of course...ate!! Saturday night's Family Celebration was very 
special.  We took time to honor our Ancestors Richard and Arkansas Hudson but gave a special 
acknowledgement to our "Living Legends"; our most senior family members in attendance.  Hand-made 
(by me) African-print stoles were draped over our loved ones by an immediate family member.  Those 
honored were:  John Luther "Buddie" Hudson, James E. Haynes, Sr., Rita Williams Haynes, Mary George 
Riddle Hudson, Gwendolyn Hudson Lazard, Herman West, Ann Hicks Davis and Theresa Williams Keene. 
What an amazing homage to our loved ones.  If you're not sure how each of them fits into the 
family, search their name on this site.  After the celebration, we ate (of course), danced and 
enjoyed making memories at the photo booth.  Sunday morning some of us worshipped together at my 
church, Destiny Church and then many hit the road home.  It was a fun-filled, family good time.  


Quick shout out to the committee who helped jumpstart this and then to my immediate family; 
Vincent, Jordan and Bria Hailey.  Vincent cooked and did anything I asked, Jordan came in a week 
early and helped immensely and Bria designed the t-shirts and our amazing reunion program. Thanks 
to everyone who helped in any way to make this reunion a success.  Additional shout out to Sherry 
West Jackson and Camelia Hudson.  Sherry was key in getting the Mary Hudson Norris descendants to 
attend and pulled together all their photos.  While Arthur Hudson's family couldn't attend this 
year, Camelia provided the photos, keeps Tribal Pages updated and even ordered t-shirts and 
programs for her siblings and father Fred Hudson; Arthur's only living child.

For those who did attend, please upload your photos.  I've created a picture folder titled Richard 
and Arkansas Hudson 2018 Reunion.  You can upload directly from your phone with the Tribal Pages 
App. If you have questions let me know.  Share this site with other family. We're hoping the next 
reunion will be even bigger.  If you'd like to host in 2020 let us know.

Enjoy your day, share the love, and be blessed! 

Hugs and Kisses!
