Elizabeth Miles married Gabriel Hudgens and was the mother of Edward G. “Ned” Hudgens. When she was widowed, she lived with “Ned” the rest of her life. Elizabeth’s half brother, Thomas J. Miles, married Gabriel’s sister, Elizabeth Hudgens, before the Hudgens’ family migrated from Cumberland County, VA to Robertson County, Ky. Thus, Elizabeth M. and Thomas M. were not only half brother and sister, but also brother and sister-in-law!
