Hudson, Thomas J., lawyer and member of Congress, was born Oct. 30, 1844, in the State of Indiana and reared on a farm. He was an ambitious boy and wished to go to school, but was forced to earn the money for his expenses himself. When he was twenty-one years of age he decided to go West and located in Kansas in the spring of 1866. He engaged in farming for four years, then studied law and commenced practice in 1870. Mr. Hudson took an active part in the political life of the community and was elected to the Kansas state legislature. He was elected county attorney three times and served several terms as mayor of his city. In 1892 he was nominated for Congress by the Democratic and Populist parties, though he was elected as a Populist and always acted with that party. After serving one term he resumed his law practice at Fredonia, where he still lives.
