Judd, Estelle, her sister Ruth and unknown members of the Morningstar Church. Estelle in the front with the locket), her sister Ruth Judd standing to the left. On the back of the photo it says, "Estelle Judd at Morningstar Church with teens. 1919." Around the time of World War One and the great flu epidemic
Judd, Oscar Roy, older  brother of my Estelle. He was born around 1898. This picture was taken around 1908. Roy was a very sensitive soul, who had seen much tragedy in his young life. When he was only 4 years old, he lost his mother to childbed fever. And when he was about 7 or 8, he lost his baby half-sister, Nina, when she was only a month old. Roy, as well as his two sisters, Estelle and Ruth, suffered a great loss when they lost their mother and baby sister within a few years of each other. Roy never really recovered completely from it. Notice the sad or haunted look in his beautiful blue eyes. Roy was a very quiet child who stayed to himself. When he grew up, he eventually married a pretty local girl named Daisy Vaughn. They had around five kids, and when Daisy was pregnant with their sixth child, she was killed by a truck that was barreling down the highway that leads through Thornton Gap. She and her kids were taking a hike one day to a relatives house (from Jewell Hollow Rd). And when they crossed the road that comes over the mountain, the truck hit and killed her and her unborn child. The children witnessed this. Roy was never the same after his beloved wife died, and he never remarried. He was unable to take care of his children, and they had to be farmed out to relatives. He lived a fairly lonely life until his death years later. Yet he was a very kind and gentle man
Judd, William Lee, he ran Judd's country store in Morning Star on Jewell Hollow

Lillard, Silas T. (left) and his brother, Benjamin H. Lillard - They were sons of Leftage Lillard and Hetta Jenkins and both were born in Page County. Benjamin left Page County and was married in Champaign County, Ohio in 1843, later moving to DeWitt County, Illinois about 1859. Silas remained in Page County all his life except for a short time in Ohio just prior to the Civil War. Silas served as the blacksmith in Co. D of the 7th Virginia Cavalry during the Civil War. Benjamin, though too old to serve, had two sons and a son-in-law who served the Union from Illinois. This photo is from a tintype probably taken some time in the late 1860's
