Default J.S. Judd and the Parker 20 bore

Stories are just stories, but it would be interesting if G.S. Judd is recorded as ordering a Parker 20g

Since I live in KY, I did a little looking on Google. I found that Maysville(on the Ohio River), not far from Cincinnati, has a Court St. G S Judd owned an insurance and collection agency during that time period. There was also a listing for him in a German business listing at the same time as having a machine factory and steam engine business in Maysville. Owens & Barkley (Frank Owens and Henry C. Barkley) Opened a General Store (listed as a Cash Only store) late in the Civil War. They later were listed as a well known shoe sales and service outlet.

Given the business holdings of Judd, and the fact that O&B (their original name) was a well established general merchandise seller, the story rings completely true. The cornpone dialect was a common affectation of the time.

Given the fact that Cincinnati, Louisville, Paris KY, and Lexington were hot beds of trapshooting from the 1870's thru the 1930's, it would not be surprising that Judd may have been familiar with the better shooters of the day, and that could well have included Parker representatives such as duBray. He lived in the right location at the right time and had the right resources to be involved.

He was possibly a participant at the Bandle Arms Co. Tournament in Cincinnati, July 1887
