JAMES HUDGENS III The Bachelor

 This proves to me that the James III Hudgens son of our James II Hudgens (1773-1858) could NOT be the James Hudgens(1805-1881) who had family in Williamson County Illinois and died there.
I had been told from folks when I first started my search that James III Hudgens died a bachelor of cancer.
Then I was told this:
 No, I had not heard that James III and Mary were twins, but twins “run in the family.”  Many instances of twins, but then there were many pregnancies in those days.  Neither James III, nor Mary, ever married.  My mother said that James III was unusually tall, and is buried in the Hudgens Cemetery in Cheatham County.  I haven’t been there lately to double check, but will go later this fall and do so.  I believe you had stated somewhere that he was buried in Ill.  Am I correct?  I do not know what was the cause of James III’s death.  I saw one Census where James III and Mary were living with their parents, and both were 45 yrs old.  So maybe they were twins.  They were the only people in the household besides the parents.  I append all the Census records, and other data to my records to back up what is in the record.  Later will go back and scan in wills, etc. plus photos.
