John T. Hudson (1811 - April 16, 1887) was an American politician from New York.

Life[edit]

He lived in Buffalo, New York.

In November 1846, he was elected on the Democratic and Anti-Rent tickets a canal commissioners. Under the Act of May 6, 1844, there were two canal commissioners to be elected to a four-year term beginning on February 1, 1847, but at the same State election the voters ratified the New York State Constitution of 1846 which extended the terms of the incumbent commissioners until the end of 1847, calling for a new election in November 1847. Thus Hudson could not take office for his elected term. However, shortly before the State election, Commissioner Jonas Earll, Jr. had died, and Hudson was appointed on December 3, 1846, by Governor Silas Wright to fill the vacancy and remained in office until the end of 1847.

In 1854, he was appointed by President Franklin Pierce Collector of Customs at Buffalo.

He was a delegate to the 1860 Democratic National Convention.
