Bill Dudley was, from my mother�s recollections, a very kindly man that helped people all over Tazewell.  I took care of the property that occupied Thomas W. Stone's garden area most of my life in Tazewell.  My grandfather Joe Phillips purchased the property where the Thomas W. Stone house stood and built a brick structure.
