Daughter of Jess and Effie Hudson

In the Okmulgee Cemetery is this small, flat stone next to the headstone for her father, Jess Hudson.  Her mother was Effie A. Ray Conner Hudson Tucker. They had just recently moved to Okmulgee from Butler Co., Mo, and were living in a canvas tent made from the cover from the husband's teamster setup and wagon when she gave birth.  Unfortunately, Dorothy did not live long enough to enjoy the prosperity moving to the booming region would bring the family in the next decade.  Jess himself would die suddenly in a gas line explosion in Bristow in 1929.
