The children's names came from the 1860 census and 1870 census records.

Louis Judt was a blacksmith living in Fulton. Next door to Louis Judt in the 1870 census, was his brother, William Judt, and family. He was 47 years old and a cabinet maker. His wife was named Catherine, and they had one daughter at home, Amilia, age 17.

In the 1880 census, Mary E. Judt is listed as head of household. All children except Edith still at home.

In the 1900 census, John Judt and his sisters Susan and Minnie are living together in Fulton. He is listed as working in a store.

In the 1910 census, same living arrangement, John is listed as a hardware merchant, the sisters as millinary. Their house was on Nicholes Street in Fulton. Their sister, Frannie (Mary Francis) Forrestal, is now living with them.

In the 1920 census, John is 60 years old. He is still working as a hardware merchant. Three sisters, Frannie, Susan and Minnie are still living with him.

Daughter Edith married Josiah Cumberland, probably around 1878.
Josiah's parents were James and Hannah Cumberland. James and Hannah had 4 children, Josiah (born 1854), Uriah (born 1855), Annie (born 1857), and Matilda (born 1861). This family was from Pennsylvania and probably came to Callaway County between 1862 and 1875.

Louis Judt died Apr. 1, 1874. He and wife Mary Elizabeth Herring were buried in the family plot at Pioneer Cemetery in Fulton. We did not find their stones, but this cemetery has been vandalized over the years and many stones have been destroyed.
