My 2nd great-grandmother, Jane Herns Boice (& family) was enroute back to Kirtland, Ohio from Pike County, Illinois when she died & was buried in "Hudson" in February 1840. Cause of death was said to be "Consumption" and effects of childbirth (my great grandfather Benjamin was born in Pike Co., Illinois in October 1839). I suspect family was traveling by wagon (?Canal) and she might not have been buried in a cemetery. I would like someone familiar with the area to tell me what Hudson (township or village) was like in the 1840 time frame. I think township is a more likely place of death, as my 2nd great-grandfather John Boice remarried and his 2nd wife who wrote his life history and compile a journal otherwise describes east coast places and their Canada origins as "townships. Thank You!!
