These records was set forth by the hand of Jessey Dudley in the year of our Lord Dec-9-1922 and to him goes the credit for their keeping to the best of his knowledge, his records were handed down to his first born son Charles Henry Dudley who has faithfully kept them to the best of his knowledge. And they will be kept and handed down to all the Dudley progenitors to come. In God we trust. Amen.This family record answers a lot of questions, but also raises a lot of new ones. Some of the information probably doesn't pertain to my Dudleys at all. Still, I have plenty of new clues to pursue.
This is truly a family treasure and I am honored to be the keeper of it, at least for my generation. It really makes me feel a connection to the past. It is clear that Jesse and Charlie intended for this information to be shared with their ancestors and I will be scanning the information to share with others. I will also make sure that the information is properly preserved.
