Myrna Wood is contributing small vignettes gleaned from the pages of the book Two Hundred Years of Hudgins 1776 - 1976, by Charles Proctor

  • Lois Annie Hudgin, b.1878, told her son Charles Proctor, author of "200 years of Hudgins 1776-1976" that when she was a little girl her task was to walk up the road to get the mail. She was warned not to walk under trees because of lynx. She knew she was half way when she passed the three Sycamore (also called Buttonwood) trees.
    One of these Carolinian zone trees still stands on Babylon Road.
    Lois Annie's route would take her up Ostrander Point Road and along Babylon Road to County Road 13 - a long walk for a young girl!
