      William Hudson was a witness to a will of a George Whidbe.
      Per Jack Saunders:
      "This is the last record I have found of him. I have seen no record of his wife Rebecca in NC and assume she may have continued to live in VA while he established a plantation or something. I suspect William died in NC, and I believe someone told me there was some record, but I've not yet found any. In any case, at some point after 1722 Rebecca married John Copeland, a man she and William had sold land to on May 4, 1700. Her will was made on Jan 13, 1735 and probated on Feb 17, 1735. She left all of her property to William and John Hudson. These were her grandsons."
