    In the 1920 census, the child named George Brown seems to match the child named Loren Hudson in 1910.  But the more exact report of relationships in 1930 changes the dynamic some.

    The 1930 census reports two children as Gertie's sons under the name Hudson.  In the 1920 census, Otto and Daniel were reported as sons of Archie with the name Brown.  Now it is clarified that they are his stepsons.

    Oran should be 22 in 1930 and likely out of the home.  18-year old Otto Hudson, who was called Otto Brown in 1920.  The closest match for George Brown in 1920 , age 4 months in 1910, and we would expect him to be out of the home in 1930.  Since Lester would be 10 years and a few months, he should still be in the home, so it appears George and Lester are the same child of Daisy V.

    Since Daniel is named Hudson in 1930, this would lead to the conclusion that Dan Brown in 1920 is Daniel Hudson of 1930.  Daniel Hudson would have been born about 1912 or 1913.  This would enable us to put the death of his father Lemuel Hudson at or after 1913.

    In the list of children below, Daisy is the daughter of Daisy V  Kemp Brown.  The younger children are Gertie's children.  Because of this information, I can deduce that Orin is Gertie's son.  This would explain the close ages reported in the 1920 census compared with the children of the 1910 census.  (See Notes for Archie Brown.)
