Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 291, Honey Creek Township, White County, Indiana

"LIEUTENANT JUDSON S. PAUL was born in Muskingum County, Ohio, September 1, 1838, and is the sixth of the seven children born to JACOB and ELIZABETH (HARDING) PAUL, natives of Pennsylvania and Virginia, and respectively of Welsh and English descent. At the age of five, in 1807, JACOB PAUL was taken to Morgan County, Ohio, by his parents, and was there reared, educated and married, and for many years followed farming. Subsequently, he came to White County, and purchased property in the village of Bradford or Monon, where MRS. ELIZABETH PAUL died, a member of the Baptist Church, and since then MR. PAUL has resided with his children, at present making his home with JUDSON S. The latter received a good education in the common and high schools of his native State, and worked with his father on the farm until 1861, when he entered MILLER's ACADEMY, in Guernsey County, Ohio, and interrupted his studies there in August, 1862, by enlisting in Company C, One Hundred and Twenty-second Indiana Volunteer Infantry. At the organization of this company, he was elected Second Lieutenant, and he was with his regiment in all its engagements until June 15, 1863, when he was taken prisoner at Winchester, Virginia, and sent to Libby Prison; thence to Macon, Georgia; thence to Charleston (where for a time the prisononers were placed under fire of the Federal fleet, then shelling the city), and then to Camp Sorghum, near Columbia, South Carolina, from which prison MR. PAUL and others made their escape November 15, 1864, and by nocturnal and secret travel made their way to a point about 200 miles north in Cherokee County, where they were re-captured by THOMAS's legion of Indians, taken to Greenville, South Carolina, and placed in jail, from which they were released by the jailer's daughter, only to be re-captured three days later. In March, 1865, MR. PAUL was sent to Richmond, was paroled April 2, and discharged May 15, 1865. In the fall, he came to Union Township, this county, and engaged there with his brother in farming and stock-raising until the fall of 1868, when he bought the farm in this township on which he now lives. December 4, 1868, he married ANNA McCUAIG, a native of Washington County, Ohio, who has borne him five children - HARRIET, WILLIAM J., DANIEL, JAMES and JOSEPH E. LIEUTENANT PAUL is a member of the G.A.R, and in politics is a stanch Republican."
