Solomon S. Hudson

Hudson, Solomon S., of East Haven, son of Calvin and Philomelia (Powers) Hudson, was born in Athens, July 22, 1836.

He was an industrious pupil of the public schools, and made the best use of his limited opportunities to obtain an education.

At the early age of nineteen he took to himself a wife, and with this responsibility commenced to clear a farm in the unbroken wilderness, carrying his worldly possessions on his back. In this enterprise he was engaged five years, when he was summoned to the field by the outbreak of the civil war. In 1862 he enlisted in Co. A, 10th Regt. Vt. Vols. He remained in the army about three years, most of the time on detached service, and was discharged when the regiment was mustered out. Returning to his farm at the close of the war, he remained there until 1886, when he moved to his present location in East Haven village, and has since been engaged in general trade.

Mr. Hudson has held many responsible positions in town, having been for many years justice of the peace and selectman. He represented East Haven in 1880, and under a Republican administration received the appointment of postmaster, a position which he worthily filled for six years.

In 1855 he married Eunecia L., daughter of Russell and Almira Hosford. She died Jan. 29, 1881. He contracted a second alliance with Lydia Gero, daughter of Holden and Viantha Partlow.

Mr. Hudson has received the first three degrees of the Masonic fraternity, and is a member of Island Pond Lodge, No. 44. He also belongs to Erastus Buck Post, GAR, of that place. He stands prominently forth in the community as a moral, industrious and energetic man of good judgment and ability.
