These are the personal histories of three of my paternal ancestors - Oliver Hunt Dudley, Joseph Smith Dudley and DeVere Snow Dudley. Oliver played a significant role in the early history of the Mormon (LDS) Church. Joseph "freighted" on the Montana Trail and was once charged with murder - an episode I don't believe he ever fully recovered from. DeVere was a colorful eccentric, with a stubborn streak. Without exception, they were compelling, provocative and just plain interesting. They have my admiration for their tenacity, toughness and character. I salute them here.
