      Jehiel 'Smith' Judd and his wife Harriet Throop were married in Washington Grove, IL on December 30, 1841.

      A brief history regarding Jehiel Smith Judd who went by "Smith" Judd. He was the son of Cyrus "Truman" Judd and Elizabeth Smith. "Smith" Judd was born in 1818 in Weybridge, Addison, VT. His family migrated to Winnebago County, IL in the late 1830s. His sister Mary Elizabeth Judd married George W. Simpson, who also settled in Cedar Falls.

      The Simpson's children were: Mary Elizabeth (m. Reuben Middleton Squier), Laura E. (m. Benjamin Squier), Charles Henry, Horace Warner (m. Harriet Rice Davis), Newell Franklin (m. Mary Amelia Davis & Lois Jane Reeves) and Cyrus Truman (m. Julia Hitchcock). I also have info about the children of Cyrus T. and Julia Simpson, some of whom stayed in Cedar Fall.

      "The remains of J. S. Judd, whose death we noted last week, were buried in a place of his own selection, on his farm near Fernandina, Florida. Mr. and Mrs. Judd left this place last November to occupy their winter home, fitted up by him during his stay in the South the previous winter, but took a severe cold before starting, from which he suffered all through the winter, till taken with "hemorrhage of the head" on the 18th, and from which he was so greatly weakened before the physician arrived, that death resulted two days later. He was 67 years old and had been a great worker, and accumulated a handsome property, notwithstanding a loss of all his available cash, about $17,000 through the short-lived bank of Cedar Falls. Mr. Judd was a consistent Christian and was a member of the Congregational Church of Cedar Falls and a liberal giver to its support. A few years ago he gave a tract of land to Grinnell College and had hoped to be a party to a new Congregational Church in Cedar Falls. By his energy and good management, he had partially recovered from his heavy financial loss and was getting in condition to spend his declining years with ease and comfort. His Cedar Falls home was the pretty villa nearly opposite Ex-Mayor Markley's. It was patterned after a similar cottage on the California Coast. This community will long mourn his loss."
