Juda "Judy" EATON31 was born about Oct 1770 in Virginia.31 She died on 15 Jun 1854 in Whitley County, Kentucky.31 From Penny Walters Towater:

Was she an Eaton, married first to a Sexton, or was she a Sexton, half-sister to an Eaton???
The facts:
(1) Her marriage bond called her Juda SEXTON. She was abt. 24 years old when she married James Rogers, a little on the old side for a first marriage. James was even older, possibly married before.
(2) Judy and James lived around the Sextons and the Eatons in Whitley Co.
(3) Juda was a big Sexton name. She had a son named Prior, both a Sexton & Eaton name.
(4) She was William Eaton's sister. (Full sister? half-sister? step-sister?) If she was born October 1770, and William Eaton was 78 on July 7, 1849, they may have even been TWINS. If that was so, she was definitely an Eaton, and she married a Sexton before she married James Rogers.
