Judd - Norton family of Schell City, Missouri

Judd - Norton family of Schell City, Missouri

I found this photograph in a flea market in Little Rock, Arkansas. The photographer was "Tussey, Schell City, Mo.".

The inscription on the back is rather confusing, it says "Grand Pa & Grandma Judd his two sisters & husband of Aunt Mollie Norton - Aura's father (unknown word).

Researching this my first impression was that one of the men is the husband of Mary Salina Judd (26 Feb 1839 - 29 Mar 1920) which would be James Norton (10 Mar 1832 - ?) because they have a daughter named Aura Belle Norton (born 1876).

I would think that the other man is David George Judd (grandpa) and his wife Annie E. Ewing (grandma). I think they may be listed as grandma and grandpa because it was perhaps written by a child of David's son Milton C. Judd who lived in Little Rock where the photo was found.

This would mean that the other women are Mary Salina and other sister Malinda Ann Judd (9 Nov 1841 - 14 Aug 1910). Malinda or Melinda was married to John M. Evans and died in Nodaway County, Missouri.

All of these Judds are descended from Milton Judd and Sophia Houser.

With a little more research someone could probably positively identify all the persons in the photograph.
