      Jud Smith was born in the town of Southport, now Ashland, Chemung Co, NY, April 14,1818, and is the fourth son of Solomon L and Julia Smith. Solomon L was a son of Timothy Smith, a native of Orange Co, NY and emigrated to Cedar Creek, Chemung Co, in the year 1790. Julia, the mother of our subject, was a daughter of Samuel Seeley, also a native of Orange County, and an early settler in Chemung County, who died about 1822 or 1823. Solomon L Smith died Nov 6, 1847. Our subject began life as a farmer at an early age, in connection with other business interests, such as running oil, grist, saw, plaster, carding, and clothing mills, distillery, and hotel proprietor, with which his father was identified during his lifetime. Was married Jan 26,1849, to Rebecca Mathews, daughter of James Mathews, of Southport (now Ashland) township; to them were born five children, two of whom are married and reside in Ashland. In politics, Mr. Smith is a Democrat; has served the town as supervisor several terms, and in the fall of 1867 was elected sheriff of Chemung County for a term of three years, which office he filled with credit to himself and satisfaction to the people.
