I was married to one of the descendants of Rowland Judd for 14 years and did a lot of genealogy back to Rowland when I went on today, it is like looking at someone completely different. I'd not looked at any Judd research since divorcing my ex 14 yrs. ago and I had given him piles of research I'd done. I understand your problem with all the different stories. I had the book Judd and it was helpful at the time. Good luck! There are some good records in TN.
