John B. Hudson, born 1770 in the town of Hartland, CT; itinerant Methodist preacher in western New York during the period of this memoir.  Hudson records some of the earliest recollections of the new towns along the Susquehanna in the 1790’s, including Franklin in 1796, Oxford on the Chenango River, Unadilla in 1798; and circuit-riding on the Herkimer & Susquehanna circuits in the first decade of the 19th century. He relates the camp meeting at Owego, in 1807, and other particulars of Tioga County. Very full with observations and opinions on the Baptists and Methodists, revivals, early Methodist leaders including Bishop Asbury, and life on this new frontier.
