Hudson, Indiana Historical Events

Pfingstag Family
In 1911, Richard J. Pfingstag, his wife Emma Maria (Mosshammer) and their children moved to Hudson from Kentucky. This family was descendent from Elizabeth Clark, one of Hudson's original families.
Three of the children; Herbert John Pfingstag, Carl Jesse Pfingstag, and Paul William Pfingstag went on to graduate from the United States Naval Academy and, at the time of World War II, became Captains. At the time, they were known as the first 3 brothers ever to be Captains at the same time in the US Navy.

Around 1840, Elizabeth Clark (nee Nunamacher in 1804) and her eight children moved to what is now called Hudson, Indiana. In 1869, with a few others, she helped plat the town which was originally called Benton (or North Benton).
Many of her children settled around Indiana and southern Michigan, with several staying in Hudson. After the children married, some returned and there are still descendants living in Hudson today. (3/2000)
