- Aug 4, 2001Greetings Ron,
Could I ask you what the basis of your Carmel research was? Maybe
we could throw out a few names of folks from Carmel to see if they
are in your bio-files.
I came across this blurb in the Bend Bulletin on Feb. 12, 1913:
"Mrs. L.P. Hudson, mother of C.S. Hudson, who has been visiting at
her son's home here for several months left Sunday morning. From Bend
she goes to Oklahoma City."
So Donald was a cousin to C.S. Bend, cashier and co-director of the
First National Bank where he worked for a year. I knew there had to
be a connection. Aunt Sarah was probably headed back to the Blandings
in Lawton. Do you think there would be an article in the Lawton
newspapers about her return?
C.S. Hudson began building a house in February of 1912, which was
completed in June of that year. Chances are Donald stayed in this
house while in Bend:
"Work was started Thursday on the foundation for another handsome
residence in Bend. This will be the home of C.S. Hudson, which will
be built at the corner of Ohio and Front streets, on lot 7 of block
4. It will be an eight-room frame building, two stories high, and
will be modern in every way. The cost will be about $2,000. The
contract has been let to J.W. Dimick and construction will be carried
on as rapidly as possible. The location is one of the best in town,
along the riverfront and affording a fine view of the mountains."
I have a fuzzy microfilm copy of the completed house.
Do you think this house is still standing?
