David Mudd is the son of John and Sue Hagan Mudd. Several of David's family lines came to Kentucky in 1792 with pioneer groups to Holy Cross located in Washington County. David has two Higdon bloodlines; both come from the John and Millicent Bowling Higdon line.
One line leads down to his great grandfather James Leonard Mudd, who was the son of William Andrew Mudd and Mary Elizabeth Higdon Mudd. She descended from William Higdon, son of John and Millicent.
The other line comes down to his great grandmother Martha Elizabeth Burtle Mudd. She was the daughter of Harrison and Mariah Burtle. This line also originates from William Higdon, son of John and Millicent.
David has lived on the same family farm all of his life. The farm was given to his grandfather Dent Mudd in 1935 as a wedding present by Bamberry Higdon. The land is part of a grant given to Thomas Higdon, father of Bamberry.
David works for Houchens Industries, based in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Houchens is the largest 100-percent employee owned company in the nation with some operations in Canada. They deal in retail grocery, warehousing, insurance, construction, recycling and manufacturing. The company also owns Commonwealth Tobacco based in Reidsville, North Carolina. David has been with the Houchens for twenty-two years.
