I am looking for more information on Gertrude "Gertie" Judd that married an unknown Crawford. She is the daughter of Milton William Judd and Sarah C. Floyd Judd of Columbia, Adair Co., KY. Gertrude is listed in the Bullitt Co., KY 1910 census as being a widowed and having 1 son Harry Crawford being 11 months old. She is listed as a servant in the household of William Hobbs.

In the 1920 Spencer Co., Camp Branch, KY census she is listed as a housekeeper along with her son, Harry Crawford who is now 10 yrs old in the household of Ernest C. Wood, MD and his wife Bertha Wood. I can't find Gertrude after the 1920 census but do find her son, Harry in the household again with Ernest C. Wood, MD and his family in the 1930 Bloomfield, Nelson Co., KY Census. He is listed as a roomer in their household.

I am looking for information on what happen to his mother, Gertrude Judd Crawford who is my great aunt. Is she buried in the cemetery that her son, Harry and his wife (Elzabeth Wheeler Crawford) are buried in also in Bloomfield, Nelson Co., KY. It is the Maple Grove Cemetery and Harry worked after he retired at the Houghlin Funeral Home until his death which was in 1987. His widow, Elizabeth lived to be 7 months short of turning 100 yrs old she died April 28, 2002.

According to Gertrude Judd Crawford's fathers (Milton William Judd) pension file from the civil war she was born October 8, 1881 and had 10 siblings. I know the siblings are correct but not positive about her birth date as some of the census shows it could be a few years either way. Her siblings were: (1)Martha "Mattie" married Robert Holt, (2)Mary "Mollie" married Charlie Hawkins (this is my great grandparents), (3)Milton "Frank" married Minnie Vaughn, (4)Dollie (NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HER), (5)William "Will" (NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HIM), (6)Ellis (NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HER), (7)Laura Darnell "Nell" (NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HER), (8)Fannie had a son Paul Judd was the mayor of Frankfort, KY, (9)Charles married Alice Ann Unknown (NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HIM) and (10)Fred married 2 times had one son by his first wife (NEED ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON HIM). Any help or leads with any of these people would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!
