A woman named Nancy Stafford identified her mother as
Judy, when Nancy was getting married in Switzerland in the
1880s. No further identification has ever been given. We are working
on a life of Nancy Stafford, and we think her mother was
Judy Williams, who appears on the 1870 census as Juda,
married to James Williams, and lived in the Pennick area of
Brunswick. Judy (Juda) gave "nurse" as her occupation.
We think it is possible that Judah (Juda, Judy) gave
birth to Nancy and another daughter named Cornelia, born
about 1854 and 1850 respectively, on Cumberland Island, Camden County.
Daughters Cornelia and Nancy were eventually removed from
Brunswick to go to school in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Another
identifying detail is that Primus Mitchell of High Point,
Cumberland Island, where he is buried, swore in court (1906) that he knew
Nancy and Cornelia to be daughters of Robert
Stafford of Cumberland Island. We think Primus
Mitchell may have been brother of Juda (Judy, Judah).
We seek confirmation from descendants of Judah (Juda,
Judy). Nancy's descendants live in England, they plan a
visit to the United States next year and would like to meet their kinfolk.
