Brief History

 

George was the oldest of the Udall brothers to stay at home and help his mother after father John Udall passed away in 1801.  His family lived at home, and in 1819 he and Jesse took over the farm and its rent during mother Catherine’s declining years (perhaps on account of her advancing insanity).  When George and Ann Bellingham had children and married, he was by all appearances a prosperous farmer and leading citizen of the community.  By 1823, however, they were no longer paying the lease, and had declined from “farmers” to “farm laborers”.  And by 1829 the family fortunes were much different.  George’s brother Jesse had sent his family to the parish Union House while he sought his fortune in America , and his mother had just died, poor and insane.

 

Things did not get better for George in the long run.  Though several of his children lived to adulthood and had means (and one of them, Gaius, was prosperous), George lived alone in a Union House throughout his old age.

 

Describing the family’s descent from prosperous farming decades later, George’s great-nephew David King Udall said, “some of his sons drank the place up and then had to work for a living.”  This points to both alcoholism and sloth, and a persistent refusal to own up to their responsibilities.
