Notes for George Tucker:

 

GEORGE TUCKEROF "Milton-Next-Gravesend." (ENGLAND)"George Tucker, ist, of "Milton-next-Gravesend," was a man of note in that ancient place. Queen Elizabeth conveyed the manor to George Tucker in 1572.The first charter of the incorporation of the Towns and Parishes of Gravesend and Milton was given July 22, 1562, in the fourth year of Queen Elizabeth, and there were ten Jurats appointed of whom George Tucker was the second.  A second charter was given June 5, 1568; of the twelve Jurats George Tucker was the fourth. In 1572-3, Sep. 3. Of the twelve principal inhabitants of Gravesend and Milton, George Tucker is mentioned as third.In 1634 a third charter was given, and Henry Tucker, supposed youngest brother of Robert, was the fifth of the twelve Jurats.

Notes for Moses Hudgens:

 

Robert HUDGINS was a shipbuilder and merchant based in Liverpool, England, having moved there from Wales. Robert sponsored his four sons William, John, Lewis and Robert as ship's captains plying the trade lanes up and down the east coast and the Caribbean. They had a shipyard in Mathews Co. VA and one in Barbados at least. Incidentally, there was a branch of the SEALES family in Barbados, and still is. The four sons left England in 1743 with their families to settle on the Piankatank River in Gloucester Co. VA (likely now mostly in Mathews Co. since it split off of Gloucester Co.) They engaged in plantation operation, shipbuilding and shipping and eventually acquired most of the shore of the Piankatank River from Gwynn's Island to Hampton in Gloucester Co. There is still a plantation home in the area called 'Clifton' which is still occupied, I understand. As the family grew, some went down the coast thru the Carolinas to Georgia and Florida. Some of those turned the corner and moved across the south into Ark and TX. At least three families came thru the Cumberland Gap into TN and KY. One branch went to KY first and intermarried with the HUNTERS, BOONES and the TUCKERS (at the moment I'm thinking my branch) before moving back down to White Co. TN. Another settled where the Memphis Airport is now before moving to southern ILL. What is now South Marion, IL was at one time called Hudgens City.

Notes for Frances Hudgens:

 

Bushwacker Bill Wilson, through his mother (my great- great- grandmother) Frances Hudgens Wilson Allen Malone, was of Welsh extraction. The surname HUDGENS is of Welsh origin; spelled originally Rhwwttchen, which means "Lord of the Far Sea". The Welsh clan moved from Wales to Liverpool, England in the 1600's, where they began to spell the name phoeneticaly the way it was pronounced in English (also Hudgins and Hutchins).

Notes for William Wilson:

 

The Story of "Bushwacker" Bill Wlson

 

Valentine Allen married Catherine Ellen Fore in Phelps County, Missouri in 1861. His half-brother was Bushwacker Bill Wilson (They had the same mother, different fathers). Bill Wilson was somewhat of a local folk hero of his time. During the Civil War, Bill Wison returned to his Missouri home after an abscence to discover that a renegade band of Union Soldiers had allegedly looted and burned his homestead to the ground. Though that part of Missouri was considered a neutral territory, there were a lot of Confederate sympathizers in the area, and Bill Wilson was thought to be one. Bill was also rumoured to be associated with Quantrell's Raiders , the Jesse James gang, and Genuine Jim Jamison, among other outlaws. Union commanders had suspected Bill Wilson of being a horse-thief and a Southern guerilla sympathetic to the Confederacy. This resulted in his home being burned by Union soldiers. After this incident, Bill Wilson became known as "yankee killer" and "Bushwacker Bill" in his exploits to avenge his family. He hid out in a large cave in the area and sought his revenge under cover of darkness in many instances. He organized a gang of bushwackers to ambush Union wagon trains. By the end of the Civil War there was a price on the head of Bushwacker Bill Wilson. Valentine Allen and his half-brother Bill Wilson were eventually arrested, though Valentine was cleared of any wrong-doing and Bill Wilson presumably escaped. Bushwacker Bill Wilson eventually met his demise when he himself was "bushwacked" by two bounty hunters in 1869. The bounty hunters were later convicted and hanged for the murder of Bill Wilson, a hero to his family and many of his neighbors. http://www.2computerguys.com/lineage/bushwacker.html

Notes for Samuel A Strawhun:

 

Another, more infamous relative was Samuel Strawhun (Strawhan, Strawn, Strawhorn). Related to the Paulsell and Hudgen families of Phelps County Missouri, Samuel was a "notorius desparado with many notches on his gun." In 1869, he crossed the famous Wild Bill Hickok who had just been elected Sheriff of Hays, Kansas.

 

"...as Hickok settled a disturbance in a saloon, Samuel Strawhun (variously spelled) drew on him. Same result. Hickok pulled the twin Colts and put two shots into Strawhun before he could pull the trigger."

 

Shortly after assuming office, in August 1869, Hickok took on a gang of drunks who were shooting up the streets of Hays City. The revelry was halted when Sheriff Hickok fatally wounded ringleader Bull Mulvey. About a month later, a similar riot erupted in John Bitter's Beer Saloon, but once again Sheriff Hickok killed the ringleader, shooting Samuel Strawhun in the head.

 

Sometime toward the end of 1867 records show that Hickok was in Hays City Kansas, working as a deputy U.S. Marshal and, apparently, no longer working with the Army. In September of 1867 Hickok was involved in one of his most famous shootouts. A man named Samuel Strawhun, a well known Hays city ruffian, decided to "clean out" one of the local saloons. As city Marshal Hickok moved in to stop the trouble. Hickok warned the armed and dangerous man to cease causing trouble. Strawhun refused, made a move for his gun and was promptly shot through the head by Hickok. Hickok had to shoot another man, in performance of his duties, named Mulvey who was another town troublemaker. In neither of these actions was any blame laid upon Hickok. On the contrary, he was applauded. Many attempts upon Hickok's life were made during these days. He developed habits, of personal safety, to protect himself. He would walk down the center of the street, eyes darting back and forth. No one was allowed to get too near. If he noted a lot of noise and disturbance coming from a saloon, he would turn sharply from his path, push the saloon doors open hard enough to cause them to slam back against the walls, and then faced the noisy crowd. He would then inform them to quiet down, and then leave as suddenly as he had arrived. Seldom did he have to repeat himself. The local newspaper wrote, "Hays city is under the guardian care of Wild Bill, is quiet, and doing well". There is also a confrontation, between Hickok and five cavalry troopers, that is somewhat in dispute as to the exact facts of the event. It is generally conceded by historians that Hickok was attacked by the five troopers. The result of that attack is that one, possibly two, of the troopers were killed by Hickok. How or why the confrontation occurred, and the exact sequence of events are in not known. Since no official action was taken by the Army, against Hickok, it must be assumed that he acted in self-defense.

 

1869 Samuel Strawhun shot by Sheriff Wild Bill Hickok

 

Just after midnight, Ellis County Sheriff Wild Bill Hickok and his deputy respond to a report that a local drunken ruffian named Samuel Strawhun, a teamster, and several drunken buddies are tearing up John Bitter's Beer Saloon in Hays City, Kansas. When Hickok arrives and orders the men to stop, Strawhun turns to attack him, and Hickok shoots him in the head. Strawhun died instantly, as did the riot. Such were Wild Bill's less-than-restrained law enforcement methods.

 

Famous for his skill with a pistol and steely-calm under fire, James Butler Hickok initially seemed to be the ideal man for the sheriff of Ellis County, Kansas. The good citizens of Hays City, the county seat, were tired of the wild brawls and destructiveness of the hard-drinking buffalo hunters and soldiers who took over their town every night. They hoped the famous "Wild Bill" could restore peace and order, and in the late summer of 1869, elected him as interim county sheriff.

 

Tall, athletic, and sporting shoulder-length hair and a sweeping mustache, Hickok cut an impressive figure, and his reputation as a deadly shot with either hand was often all it took to keep many potential lawbreakers on the straight and narrow. As one visiting cowboy later recalled, Hickok would stand "with his back to the wall, looking at everything and everybody under his eyebrows just like a mad old bull."

 

But when Hickok applied more aggressive methods of enforcing the peace, some Hays City citizens wondered if their new cure wasn't worse than the disease. Shortly after becoming sheriff, Hickok shot a belligerent soldier who resisted arrest, and the man died the next day. A few weeks later Hickok kills Strawhun. While his brutal ways were indisputably effective, many Hays City citizens were less than impressed that after only five weeks in office he had already found it necessary to kill two men in the name of preserving peace. During the regular November election later that year, the people expressed their displeasure, and Hickok lost to his deputy, 144-89. Though Wild Bill Hickok would later go on to hold other law enforcement positions in the West, his first attempt at being a sheriff had lasted only three months.

 

Quoted from BLOODLETTERS AND BADMEN

 

"Sam Strawhun earned his reputation as a gunfiughter and killer in Hays Cty, Kan, just after the Civil War. He was a vicious, rowdy drunk who shot first and asked the name of his victim later. Hays was a wide open cowtown for a number of years but a Vigilance Committee soon hired Wild Bill Hickok to keep the peace and the shootings abated. Strawhun was order to leave town and, angered by the directive, proceeded, with Joseph Weiss, to beat up a vigilante named Alonzo Webster." "Webster grabbed his pistol and shot Weiss; Strawhun fled, going to Ellsworth. The outlaw returned to Hays on September 27, 1869, still brooding about his exile. He entered Bittle's Saloon with about eighteen cowboys, old friends, and the mob began to shoot up the place. Bittles sent for Hickok, who arrived in a jovial mood." "At first, Wild Bill tried to fake Strawhun out of any gunplay. the gunfighter and his friends were then in the street, having taken all the saloon's beer glasses with them. HIckok ignored Strawhun's threat: 'I shall kill someone tonight just for luck!' The marshal smilingly collected several beer glasses from the drunken cowboys and took them back to the saloon. Strawhun followed him."

 

"As Hickok stood at the bar, staring into a mirror, Strawhim threatened to break every glass in the place. Wild Bill's lips curled into an ugly snarl,'Do, and they will carry you out.' Hickok, watching in the mirror, saw Strawhim step behind him and reached for his pistol. The marshal whirled about, gun already in hand and shot Strawhun dead."

 Samuel never married. It is believed he is buried on Boot Hill in Hays City, KS. Charles McCain writes: "History in the county does not reflect how Sam became a gunfighter or

  what happened to place him on that path!" SOURCE: Charles Roland McCain - researcher
