All I know is that Moses Houston, son of Thomas Houston & Mary Patterson, married Ann Dudley, daughter of Christopher Dudley.
The Gillettes also have a Dudley connection in that John Gillette (died 1752) son of John Gillette, married Sarah Dudley, daughter of Thomas Dudley and Elizabeth Jarrott. When John died, his wife had already died & his mother-in-law had lost her husband the same year & married John Backhouse. They applied for guardianship of the two Gillette orphans, named Sarah & Elizabeth & I believe it was granted. Both of the girls lived to marry.
Sorry to be so long to answer. I had lost track of this site.
