Fudge family

 Family

According to the historical sketch of the family by Joe Fudge found in the collection, the Fudge family migrated from Hanover, Germany to Pennsylvania about 1760. In the following decades, family members migrated into Maryland and Virginia. The Fudge family took an active part in frontier settlement in Virginia, West Virginia, and Ohio, and those living in Virginia fought for the Confederacy during the Civil War. A Fudge in-law, Jacob Persinger, was captured as a boy by Shawnee and raised by them until he was about 20 when he was returned to his family.
