Jude was an African American woman born about 1808. I believe Burgess Harelson Byars was the slave holder of Jude.

1850 District 14, Warren, Tennessee
Slave schedules 1850 for Burgess Harelson Byars: (this one not readable on ancestry) but the index says: F42, M"0", F"0", F13.

1860 Warren, Tennessee
Slave schedules 1860 for Burgess Harelson Byars: F52, M30, M26, F23. I believe the F52 is Jude and the F23 is her daughter, Nancy.

1870 McMinnville, Warren, Tennessee
Jude 60, appears as a domestic servant in the home of RC Lane with her daughter, Nancy 26, enumerated in the next home as a servant to J C Akin. Jude is listed as a widow, born in Tennessee.

1880 Mcminnville, Warren, Tennessee
Jude age 72 is living with the daughter of Burgess Harelson Byars, Mary Byars Fuston. Her daughter Nancy 39 appears also. I believe Nancy is the 13 yr. old in 1850, 23 yrs. in 1860, 26 yrs. in 1870, and 39 in 1880. Jude is listed as a widow, born in Tennessee.

Would welcome contact with any descendants of Jude and Nancy. Burgess Harelson Byars was my 4th great grandfather.
