HUDSON, H. C. (?–?). H. C. Hudson, government official, was in Texas in 1835 and was present at the San Felipe meeting discussing the Anahuac Disturbances. He was appointed second judge of Austin Municipality by the provisional government of Texas in the fall of 1835 and on January 13, 1836, was made comptroller of the treasury, a post he held until October 22. Sam Houston nominated Hudson for district attorney of Fayette County in December 1836. In the summer of 1837 he had a law office with Josiah Crosby in Washington-on-the-Brazos.
