Hello. I requested this new forum and now we have it. It is up to us to get it going.
This is what info. I have:
Thomas Walter Pudge b. Feb. 5, 1858 in Much Cowarne, Hereford, England. He was a twin and had an older brother who would inherit the family farm. He was on a hunting outing with his father and when they cane to a barb wire fence they placed their firearms next to the fence. While climbing it, one firearm went off and killed his father. His brother was furious and vowed to kill him (his brother knew he would inherit the place and wanted no competition from the favorite son). Thomas (T.W.) fled the UK and came to USA. In the USA he met and married Mary Lavada Scoville b. May 1875. They lived in Kansas and reared 9 children. Mabel E. b. Feb. 1890 KS, Flossie B. b. Dec 1892, Harry W. b. April 1894, Raymond Earl b. Dec. 1897, Elmer Virgil & Frederick James (Twins) b. 1902, Salome Alice b. May 10, 1905, Delores A. b. 1908 and Mary (Lucile) born 1911. Mary (Lucile) is the last surviving child of this generation. She currently lives in Kansas (where all this children were born). She is a great woman.
Mary Lavada (Scoville) Pudge was a midwife and delivered many, many babies in Kansas. She and her husband raised their children on their land (homestead act - free land). They imported Percheron stallions and mares and had a breeding facility there. I hope this gets everyone started. e-mail me or post to your hearts content.
