To All Relatives:
I see there are many of us.There are 3,013 listings of
Judys in the White Pages all over America.
This message is intended to address all Judys and those
who descend from the Judy families all across America.
Do you think there is enough interest to get relatives
to pool their resources into having a updated version
of the Carlock book published, but corrected in many ways?
Everybody would have to do their part from their branch.
This is too big of a project for any one person or even
a group of people.A volunteer group would not work.
It would have to be professionally done.What is the
verdict on this?
As for me, I descend from the following:
8th great grandparents - Jakob von Tschudi / Elsbeth Schwab
7th great grandparents - Nichlaus von Tschudi, Sr. / ???
7th great grandparents - Weinbert Tschudi, Sr. / A. Reiniger
6th great grandparents - Martin Tschudi, Sr. / Eliz Tschudi
5th great grandparents - Martin Tschudi II / Anna Boni
4th great grandparents - Johann Tschudi, Sr./ John Judy, Sr
3rd great grandparents - Richard LeMaster Judy, Senior
2nd great grandparents - Richard LeMaster Judy, Junior
1st great grandparents - George Franklin Judy
Grandparents- Clyde Theodore Judy
Anna Belle Cullison
My Parents- Claride Richard Judy
Dorothy Louise Holitzke
Martin Tschudi, II and Anna Boni came on the sailing ship,
Sally, that landed at the Port Of Philadelphia in November
10, 1767.It is not known how long they stayed in the
Philadelphia area before moving to Reading, Pennsylvania,
as he had a brother Johannes Tschudi who came before him
in 1749 with his father and had already settled in the
area.They lived only 10 miles apart.
In 1784, the family of Martin Tschudi, II began to move,
surely, but slowly.From the area of Reading, Pennsylvania
they went to Fort Pitt, then to Harpers Ferry, then down
to North Mill Creek, West Virginia, then on to Giles Co.,
Virginia, then on to Flemingburg, Kentucky, then on to
Mount Sterling and Winchester, Kentucky.Nearly all of
the family went, but with the exception of Samuel Tschudi
and Martin Tschudi II.Samuel stayed with his Uncle Johannes in the Reading, Pennsylvania area, helping him
run the General Store and Martin Tschudi II stayed behind
as well, as he was a cooper and did not want to be a farmer
or face the Indian threat.
Johann Tschudi, Senior must have wanted to move his own
family after their mother, Anna Boni Tschudi died in 1793
in Kentucky.He went to Greene County, Ohio in 1795 and in the Beavercreek Township area to find a place for the family
to live, returned to Kentucky in 1797 and moved his own
Johann Tschudi, Sr., Jacob Tschudi, Senior (brother) and
Nancy (Judy) Hatfield (their sister) all came together in
the early 1797's or before 1800 to settle in Greene County, Ohio, while the rest stayed in Kentucky.
Upon the death of Johann Tschudi, Senior, known as John Judy, Senior and Phoebe LeMaster Tschudi - Judy, in 1841 in Peoria, Liberty Township, Union County, Ohio.The children of Johann (John) and Phoebe stayed in the area until 1856
and all moved except Jesse Judy and the two Judy sisters,
who married Wilson brothers and lived in the Plattsburg,
Ohio area.Jesse remained in Union County, Ohio.
These are my direct connections.However, we all branch
out and we are all related, but one must find out "HOW?"
IF YOU HAVE A GOOD SUGGESTION OR ADVICE ON THIS NEW ENDEAVOR
I WOULD LIKE TO HEAR FROM YOU.I DO NOT WISH TO BE THE
CHAIRMAN OF THIS COMMITTEE, AS I DO HAVE A LOT TO DO AS IS.
Thanks for your time in reading this message........
