Udston was off Farm Road 229 ten miles northwest of Crockett in western Houston County. It was established in the late 1880s and acquired a post office in 1887 with L. W. Baker as postmaster. At its height around 1890 the settlement comprised a general store, two cotton gins, and a number of houses. The post office was closed in 1894, and by the mid-1930s the town no longer appeared on highway maps.
