    Notes 
    • The Headstone for Sarah Stedman is inscribed wife of Calvin Judd and 1835-1906. The 1880 census identifies that Sarah A. Judd was born in New York to New York born parents. Genealogies of Calvin Judd identify that, after Calvin's first wife died in 1871, he married again. They list a Widow Phelps and Sarah Stedman. I believe - bur cannot yet prove -  that Widow Phelps and Sarah Stedman are one in the same.

      The only Sarah Stedman born in New York about 1835 was the daughter of William and Priscilla Stedman of Oneida County, New York. In the 1860 census, Sarah is living with the family along with a Franklin Phelps, age 30, born New York.

      In the 1870 census, I could not located a Sarah Stedman, born about 1835 in New York; however, I did find a Sarah Phelps who appears to be a widow with a 7 year old daughter. She is living in Southington, Connecticut, with a Willis B Wheeler and wife Elizabeth and children. They were also born in New York and Elizabeth would be the same age as Sarah's sister Elizabeth.

      She was proven as the wife of Calvin Judd through the 1900 census where Sarah A Judd, mother-in-law, born March 1835, NY, was living with the Alexander J. and Angie H. Graham family in Bristol, Connecticut.

      Further research is required to determine if I have correctly identified Sarah's parents.

      In addition, I also searched for a Phelps who is recorded to have married a Sarah Stedman. I think, if this scenario is likely, that either the Franklin Phelps living with the Stedmans in the 1860 census, or one of his family, could have been her husband. I determined that Franklin was likely Truman Franklin Phelps, son of Asa Phelps and Elmira Andrews, born in 1830 in Herkimer County, New York. He did enlist in the Civil War as a Private and rose to the rank of First Lieutenant. He did survive the War and lived in Minnesota until at least 1910. There is no evidence that he married. However, he is missing from the 1870 census.

      I would like clues to verify or dispute all of these circumstantial identifications.
