    And still more;

    I have now found an entry on Ancestry in the US Social Security and Claims Index for Stella Mae Hudson, father Lewis Brady and mother Mamie L Horrell, born 20 September 1921 in El Paso, Texas and died 16 November 1990. The original SSN is from 1948 and was given in the name of Stella M Hudson at that time. This ties into a marriage record for 7 April 1986 in Grant, Washington where James F Hudson marries Stella M Brady. This suggest they got together in the 1940s when one or both may have been married, but only married nearly 40 years later.

    The obvious question is why the Brady name? According to the Ancestry family tree the maiden name of Mamie Horrell was Brady. Her husband was Louis Horrell. It is possible Stella switched the Horrell and Brady names when she applied for her SSN in order to cover her tracks. James F Hudson died in 1993 and there is a gravestone for both Jim and Stella pictured on Ancestry which I seem unable to copy and load.

    I am now pretty satisfied that Stella chose to disappear, possibly when she met James Hudson, and that she stayed with him for over 40 years. Who knew what in the family is another and interesting question. .
