Hi, Mary Ann -

Which of Robert's children are you descended from? He's also in my direct line from Rowland Sr. I come through Robert's daughter, Elizabeth "Betsy" Judd who married Thomas Williamson. Which child of Robert's do you descend from?

Jane

Robert son of Rowland. I am trying to connect Robert to Rowland with some type of proff.
Robert married Rachel Greer daughter of Benjamin Greer they also were in the same area. Have you ever seen a will for Rowland?
Robert's son John Greer Judd,Benjamin F.,Jefferson D. my granddaddy was Hurshel my mother was Lillian Judd.
John left Ky and went to TN . My bunch were born either in Overton or Putnam county Tn Putnam was made a county from Overton and several other large counties.
so nice to hear from someone thru Robert.

Just for information, we are also descended from Robert Judd and Rachel Greer through their son James. James married Nancy Feese in Adair County, Kentucky on 26 Nov 1823. Some time later they moved to Indiana and then on to Des Moines County, Iowa (near Burlington) where they lived the rest of their lives. Many of their descendants live in southern Iowa and northern Missouri. Don't know if I have any information that you might need, but would be glad to share.

Hi, Mary Ann, Jo, and Everyone -

Sorry to be late in replying - but my genealogy work is usually relegated to weekends when I'm not doing my 9 - 5.

If Rowland Sr had a will, I don't recall mention of it anywhere in all my searching that I could go back and find. I quickly checked in the book "Judd" by Peggy Gregory and didn't find mention of a will per se either. Quoting the book: "Rowland Judd gradually disposed of his land. One of the last recorded deeds was dated 4 May 1801 when he sold twentyfive acres of land for $25.00 to John Judd. (Note: Book Ref 22 "Deed of Sale from Rowland Judd to John Judd," 4 May 1801, recorded Aug term 1801 by oath of Rowland Judd Jr; Deed Book C-1, pp 247, 248., Wilkes County, N. C. Courthouse). His death occurred in Reddies River, Wilkes Co NC on 25 Oct 1806." So perhaps a letter to the Courthouse could result in something. I have read in the Wilkes Co Genealogical Society bulletins that Rowland's property, real and personal, was sold in a sheriffi's sale a couple of years before his death but for what reason I don't know. I can locate this for you if you wish but it willl take a little time. I have a lot of the older bulletins which actually gives quite a bit of interesting information on the Judds, Greers, Willcoxsons, etc.

To again quote the "Judd" book: "The Green County probate records do not have an inventory or administration of the estate of Robert Judd, so it is presumed that before his death, he had disposed of his property".

Elizabeth "Betsy" Judd and her husband, Thomas Williamson, were not documented in the Judd book, however, being my lineage, I can provide that for anyone interested. Many of the Judds and Williamsons moved to Crawford Co, Indiana and other counties and then to Illinois and some on to Iowa and further. Elizabeth and Thomas settled in Knox Co, Ill, just 50 miles from Burlington, and there were several Judd relatives in Knox so Elizabeth had "family" nearby.

It's a very interesting family.

Jane

Hi Lorna

I don't know if I gave you this information or not. I received it from cousin Roger Shell who was able to go to England and look up information going back 3 more generation.

The parents of Frederick William Judd b: March 30, 1811 in St. Margaret's, Westminster, London, England were:

William Judd b: April 17, 1785 in Stretton-on Densmore, Warwick, England, d: March 22, 1862 in Sussex Road 17, Islington East, St.Mary, Middlesex, England and was married on February 2, 1806 in St. Margaret's Westmininster, Middlesex, England to Mary Richardson b: bef. 1790 in England d: August 18, 1855 in 4 Gloucester Street, Regent's Park, St. Pancras, Middlesex, England. Children: William James, George Stephen, Frederick William, Maria, Caroline Sarah, Sophia Elizabeth & Louisa A.

William Judd's parents were:
John Judd b: abt September 23, 1759, m: October 10, 1780 in Stretton-on-Densmore, Warwick, England to Elizabeth Green b: before 1765. Children: Elizabeth, John, William, Richard, Thomas, Lucy, George and Joseph.

John Judd's parents were:
Thomas Judd b: before 1740, m: before 1757 in Warwick, England to Elizabeth ? b: before 1742. Children: Elizabeth, John, Thomas, Joseph, Betty and James.

It was Frederick William Judd's sons Frederick Charles, Henry/Harry, Walter Robert, and Frederick Richard who came to Canada in the 1870's.

It would be great if anyone had information connecting our family to the Judd's who went to the United States.
