    Jud Baptist Church

    My father, Randolph Wilson was the pastor of this Jud Baptist Church when I was a little girl. The photos are of the church in later years. The picture on the inside is an indication of how old it was at that time. This was taken in the 1990s. It has since fallen in completely. The first one is an oil painting I did of the church for my parents. They are both gone now. This was the only painting I did of this church and so now it is in my home. I hope you put these in Jud Texas Escapes because it would be my way of honoring the people who were such a great influence on me when I was very young. I remember them all and so many things about them. Thank you very much. - Jennifer Holmes, January 31, 2013

    Jud, Texas Forum

  • Dear TE, Just a note to say that I grew up a few miles north of Jud, almost due west and ten miles from O'Brien and east of Kiowa Peak on the Salt Fork of the Brazos. My father worked for an oil company and I attended Knox City schools. I write fiction and have had published many stories, using Jud as a partially fictional town, peopled with colorful characters. These stories are published in small, mostly university literary magazines but I hope one day to put together in a collection.

    Thank you two for the work that you are doing. I think it's wonderful and you should be applauded. I was both surprised and happy to find Jud and other local communities (many which were much larger and more 'alive' in the late 50s when I graduated from HS and moved on). Thank you and best wishes - Jim Finley, Friendswood, Texas, August 15, 2006
