    • JOHN S. JUDAY. Among the old, intelligent and representative families of this part of Indiana is the one of which our subject is a descendant, and in tracing back the genealogy of the family we find that the ancestors came originally from England. John Judav and his wife Catherine were born on British soil about the middle of the eighteenth century, and about the year 1771 came to America and settled in New England. Their son Henry was born in Washington county, Md., May 15, 1772, and about 1800 the latter married Elizabeth Delkert, who was born in Rockingham county, Va., May 28, 1782. After marriage they resided in Greenbrier county, W. Va., and there three children were born: a daughter, Catherine, and two sons, John and David. In 1810 they left the Old Dominion and settled in Preble county, Ohio, where five more children were born: Solomon, Jacob, Sarah, Balser and Adam. The father and mother with their children, John, David, Balser and Adam, moved from Ohio to Elkhart county, Ind., in October, 1836, and the father died in this county May 11, 1849, when seventy-six years, eleven months and twenty-six days old. The mother died in the same county on September 15, 1846, aged sixty-four years, three months and seventeen days. The following is the record of the eight children residing in this county: Catherine was born in Greenbrier county, W. Va., April 21, 1802; married Michael Ott in Preble county, Ohio, about the year 1823, and the following year moved to Elkhart county, Ind., where her death occurred on June 23, 1863, at the age of sixty-one years two months and two days. To her marriage were born eight children: Elizabeth, Abraham, William, Susanna, Sarah, Daniel, Mahala and an infant. John Juday was born in Greenbrier county, W. Va., November 18, 1805, and married Susanna Rookstool in Preble county, Ohio, December 23, 1832. He and his wife moved to Elkhart county, Ind., in October, 1836, and his death occurred in Syracuse, Kosciusko county, May 19, 1887, when eighty-one years six months and one day old. Ten children were born to them as follows: Henry, Alfred, Elizabeth, John, Adam, George, Amanda, Thomas, Benjamin and Samuel. The father of these children settled in the woods of Benton township and cleared up a farm of 200 acres. He was a member of the United Brethren Church, and a most worthy citizen. Solomon was born in Preble county, Ohio, August 9, 1810, and was married in the same county to Miss Elizabeth Grisson January 1, 1829. They moved to Elkhart county, Ind., and he died in that county August 9, 1880, when seventy years of age. To his marriage were born these children: Sarah, John, Mary A., Milton, Adam, Rebecca, Catherine, Susanna, Louis, Emma and James. Jacob Juday was born in Preble county, Ohio, May 14, 1812, and was married in the same county about 1835 to Miss Mary A. Rex. He moved to Elkhart county, Ind., in June, 1838, and died in that county June 28, 1863, when aged fifty-one years one month and fourteen days. Nine children were born to them, viz.: Elizabeth, Nancy, Catherine, John, Franklin, Delilah. Nathaniel, an infant son, and Isabella. Sarah Juday was born in Preble county May 15, 1815, and was married in the same county to John Wentz in 1835. In 1866 she and her husband moved to Elkhart county, and there her death occurred on February 27, 1882, aged sixty-six years nine months and twelve days. To them were born seven children: Henry, Catherine, Sarah, Jacob, Elizabeth, Mary and Martha. Balser Juday was born in Preble county, June 23, 1818, and moved to Elkhart county, Ind., with his parents in October, 1836. He married Miss Anna Price, April, 1843, and his second marriage was to Miss Elizabeth Helsel in 1848. His death occurred in Elkhart county, Ind., March 14, 1883, aged sixty-four years eight months and twenty-one days. He was the father of twelve children: Matilda, Henry, Nelson, Jane, Ellen, James, Thomas, Ira, John, Amanda, Chauncy and Ida. Adam Juday was born in Preble county October 3, 1823, and moved with his parents to Elkhart county, Ind., in October, 1836. He was married to Miss Magdalina Ebert June 28, 1848, and to them were born ten children: Vandaline, Marion, Noah, Sabina, Ellen, Alice, Emma, Wesley, Alonzo and Milton. Solomon Juday, son of Henry Juday, and father of our subject, was born in Virginia and moved to Ohio at an early day, settling with his father in Preble county. He married Miss Elizabeth Grisson, and the children born to this union are mentioned above. For six or seven years after marriage Solomon Juday resided in Ohio, but he came to Elkhart county, Ind., in the fall of 1835 and settled in Benton township. He cleared up a good farm of nearly 182 acres, and at one time owned 260 acres. However, he sold eighty acres of this, but still had a fine farm left. He was one of the most esteemed citizens of the county, and no man stood better in the estimation of all. His son, John S. Juday, subject of this sketch, was born on a farm in Preble county, Ohio, January 20, 1831, and was brought to Indiana when a child of five years. As a consequence nearly all his recollections are of Elkhart county, and he has known no other home. He attended the old log school-house in the district, and while young killed many deer on the land now farmed by himself and neighbors. When twenty-five years of age he married Miss Levina Finley, daughter of Orrin Finley, who was a native Vermonter and who settled in La Salle county, Ill. Two children were born to this union: Dora M., who died at the age of two years, and James O. John S. Juday worked in La Salle county, Ill., two years and then made a settlement in Elkhart county, Ind. His wife died three years after marriage, and Mr. Juday's second marriage was to Miss Sarah A. Peoples, daughter of Francis and Mary Peoples. Two children blessed this union: Salena A. and Minnie A. Our subject bought his present farm in 1868 and settled on it in 1870. It then consisted of forty acres, and to this he has since added eighty acres and now has 120 acres of good farming land. He has a good brick residence, substantial barn, and everything about the place indicates a progressive and prosperous owner. He is a public-spirited man, has taken an active interest in having good schools in his community, and is a member of the school board. His children are all well educated. His son, James O., is a farmer in La Salle county, Ill. He is married and has two children. William Peoples, grandfather of Mrs. Juday, was born in Pennsylvania, where he followed farming and where he married a Bohan. Six children were given them. Eliza, Hannah, Francis, John and William are remembered. Mr. Peoples passed away in his native State. His son Francis, father of Mrs. Juday, was born in Lancaster county, Penn., December 9, 1813, and like most of his ancestors before him was a farmer. He went to Ohio when a young man, or in 1835, and married Miss Mary Kindig, who was also a native of Lancaster county, Penn., born March 11,1816, and the daughter of Henry and Madaline Kindig, both of whom were originally from Lancaster county, Penn., but early settlers of Montgomery county, Ohio. To Mr. and Mrs. Peoples were born seven children: Henry, Sarah A., Selina , William E., John F., Ann M. and Aldis A., all natives of Montgomery county, Ohio. In 1859 Mr. Peoples came to Indiana and settled on the farm where his widow now resides. There his death occurred April 17, 1891. He was a worthy and honored citizen. Both Mr. and Mrs. Peoples were baptized in the German Baptist Church August 17, 1862. Mrs. Peoples is still living and is quite advanced in years.”
      “Mr. Ott had no education but was an American pioneer backwoodsman. He reared a large family with the expenditure of very little money, relying on what he could raise, and the gun for support. His settlement was about twenty miles west of Dayton, near Lewisburg, Preble Co., Ohio, and he was one of the first men to settle in that county. The ancestors of the Hepners and the Judays were also pioneers in the same county.”
