Next sister of Abigail's was Esther Judson Curtis, born in 1660, who married Benjamin Curtis in 1680/1. Benjamin was born in 1652 and died in 1733. They had 3 or 4 children, (depending upon which Ancestry tree you look at,) and when Esther died in 1713, she was buried in the Old Congregational Burying Ground in Stratford. Benjamin remarried the next year. I have not yet been able to see the connection between Benjamin and Abigail's husband, Josiah Curtiss (1662-1745), since they had different parents. But families in the same community with the same name mean they probably are cousins of some level at least.
The next birth that Abigail's mother had was twins. In Oct. of 1664, probably on the 27...Joshua Judson and Ruth Judson Wells were born. Joshua has little information given about him, except that he may have married in 1695 to a Deborah Clark. The Ancestry trees say he lived until 1744, dying in Young, Texas. It is always possible, but since I love Texas history, I wish I knew how he fitted into it. At what time might he have gone all the way from Connecticut to Texas? No answers at this point.
His twin sister Ruth Judson Wells, married Samuel Wells (Welles) (1662-1733). They had 2 daughters and perhaps other children which aren't recorded through Ancestry. Ruth died in 1744 and is buried in Center Cemetery in East Hartford, CT.
Her marker says:
Here was Buried ye Body of Mrs Ruth Wells the widow of Mr Samuel Wells Dec. who Died May ye 2d 1744 in the 80th Year of her age.
There was a Capt. Samuel Wells who lived and died just a few years differently than our Samuel, and his wife was also a Ruth Wells. However, they are buried in Glastonbury cemetery, Hartford County, CT.
I just looked to see if this Samuel Wells (husband of Ruth Judson) was related to Rebecca Wells Judson (who married Capt. James Judson.) It looks like they were brother and sister. There may need to be some clarification still.
RebeccWell Judson's fine-a-grave site says:
From the Book "Descendants of William Judson of Connecticut" compiled by Linda-Jeanne Dolby:
Daughter of Thomas Welles and Widow Hannah Tuttle Pantry. She was from Hartford, CT and was the granddaughter of Governor Thomas Welles of Connecticut.
She married James on August 18, 1680 and bore 9 children; 4 sons and 5 daughters.
Her Stone reads: "Here lyes ye body of Mrs. Rebekah Judson Who Dyed Nov. ye 5th, 1717 Aged 62 years."
I just updated my post about Rebecca Wells Judson and her husband James Judson. New information says they have 9 not 7 children.
And the last sibling before Abigail was Phebe Judson. She was born on 29 Oct 1666, and only lived until 1 Nov. 1676. Her ten years of life were in Stratford, Fairfield CT.
So I'm satisfied at exploring the big family Judson, for now.
