||3-6. The Judsonís and The Osbornís|
~1805 - Connecticut, USA:
Cornelius Judson was born in Connecticut around 1805, possibly in Fairfield County where there was a concentration of several Judson families in the early eighteen hundreds. Before he was two years old Corneliusí parents moved to New York State, probably to Chenango County in south-eastern New York where six Judson families lived in 1820, including Phylo Judson, an uncommon name that showed up a couple of times later in Corneliusí family.
By 1830 Cornelius had married and was living in Wysox in Bradford County, Pennsylvania, which is located about fifty miles southwest of Binghamton, New York. Cornelius became caught up in the westward expansion that spread Americans of European ancestry across the continent.
- [Us Censuses]
Cornelius Judson was born in Pennsylvania ca 1805.
Cornelius married, probably in Pennsylvania, when he was about 25, ca 1830. His wife's name was shown as Jerusha on the 1850 Census, but on all subsequent censuses his wife was called "Lucy". >
It is possible that Jerusha died young and that Lucy was his second wife. It is also not unlikely that she simply disliked her name and preferred to be called Lucy.
Sometime between 1837 and 1843, Cornelius and his family moved to Winslow, Stephenson, Illinois where they farmed. They may have lived in western New York for a while around 1834 since their son>
, William, was born there. By the time of the 1850 Census they had 6 children. A 66 year old lady, Amelia Judson, lived with them. She may have been Cornelius' mother. Forty-one year old Betsy>
Judson also lived with them. She may have been Cornelius' sister.
In 1850, the Judson's lived only a few farms away from two families of Lincoln's, and these may have been cousins, both of the Judson's and of Abraham Lincoln.
Sometime between 1850 and 1860, Cornelius moved his family to Nora, Jo Daviess, Illinois, where he continued to farm. His son Horace and his new wife also lived in Nora in 1860. It is not clea>
r whether they moved there before or after Horace's marriage.
In 1870, Cornelius was still living in Nora, Illinois. The census shows his occupation as "Retired Mechanic", so he may have got out of farming during the previous ten years. He and his wife a>
nd one of their daughters, "Justy" [Jesta?], lived next door to their son, Horace.
There is no trace of either Cornelius or his wife Lucy in the 1880 Census. It is likely that they both died at some time in the ten year period.
