Carter G. Woodson connection
A family member has requested that I investigate a possible connection that her family might have to Carter G. Woodson's mother. The claim is that her grandmother, Mary Riddle, is the sister of Ann Eliza Riddle. Let me say that I am extremely skeptical of the connection mainly because of her age, anything is possible. The information I have is pretty sketchy right now. I found a family tree on the web and I am wondering what these reference and ID numbers mean. I don't understand the reference to slaveowner Thomas Henry Hudgins. How does he fit in to all of this? I do not know what sources were used to put this family group together. I know that Woodson referenced his parents and some of his uncles in his writings but I'm sure if he what sources were used for all of this information.
