Hi, Sherry!
I am not aware of a sister to Creed named Judith, but you probably know that his mother was named Judith (Wills), so a sister of that name is not out of the question. My list of siblings comes from the will, so she is not included.
Creed left Claiborne Parish, probably after the death of his wife Eliza Coleman Thompson, and settled in Union County AR. That is just across the AR/LA border. Creed married Henrietta Driskill, sister of Legross Driskill, who married Creed's daughter, Judith Ann Eliza Thompson. He died in 1841. Confused? (me too) I have looked for any record of Eliza's death in Claiborne Parish, but have found nothing. I'll keep Judith in mind while I'm looking. I'm hoping to go up there (Union County AR)this month, and I'll try to drop down to Homer LA as well.
