That whole Indian legend on Juda Valentine is not true. My children descend from Bobby Lee Parton born 1948 to Avie Lee Caroline Owens
born 5 Oct 1923 to Rena Kansas Valentine born 1902 to Lloyd Henry Valentine born 6 Mar 1874 to William R. Valentine born 12 Dec 1854 to William (Billy) Valentine born June 19, 1827 SC who married Mary Ann Shamblin born ca 1827 AL.This is the family your Juda comes out of. No Indian there, only legend.
The Indian was suppossed to come in on Mary Ann Shamblin's side, but one has not been found. Mary Ann was the dau of Aaron H. (Holland?) Shamblin born 1805-1810 VA or TN and Juda Bright born May 1815-1816 TN or AL. Your Judy was really Juda and named for this Juda.
Aaron H. Shamblin born 1895-1810 was son of John Shamblin who died ca 1842 Knob Creek, Sevier Co, TN and his wife Eleanor. John is assumed to be son of William Chamblin/Shambllin whose will was 4 Feb 1791 and had wife Sarah. I believe William's will was somewhere in VA.
Juda Bright's ancestry, minus an Indian, can be found at http://gendex.com
How the Indian legend ever got started, I will never know. Mary Ann Shamblin appears to have been the only child for Aaron Shamblin and Juda Bright. A picture of Juda Bright is in the Sevier Co. Tenn heritage book.
