On 17 Dec 1895, Charles married Sara Dearing. Sara was born March 1878 and died 08 Mar 1932 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Canada at the approximate age of 54.
The Judins along with their sons, Carl Henry and Frank Leon were in Collegeport, Matagorda County, Texas by March 14, 1910 as the names of C. H. Judin and wife appear on the Hotel Collegeport register. They were probably there to enjoy a meal. The sons attended the Collegeport School.
Their son, Carl Henry Judin was born 09 May 1895 in Michigan and died 02 March 1972 in Houston, Texas at the age of 76. Frank Leon was born 01 Jun 1905 in Berry County, Michigan and died 15 April 1984 in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Canada at the age of 85.
The last known mention of their names in a Collegeport news column was in July, 1915, so they must have left the area shortly after that time. Many families moved from the area during that same time period.
Below are various items scattered through the Collegeport web page that give a small insight into the lives of the Judin family. Mr. Judin was quite resourceful and had many different responsibilities while living in Collegeport.

When you read this, forget the Collegeport of today and think only of the Collegeport of 1910 for all this copy is from the columns of the Collegeport Chronicle of that year.
Work on the roads and repairing bridges and washouts has kept overseer Judin on the alert this week.

Sportsmen G. A. Lake and W. L. Green donned the
garbs of the real hunter and hied themselves away last Friday to Mad
Island lake and in an hour's time they had a bag of 23 teal duck
when night drove them in. It is not known what liquid refreshment
they indulged in on this trip--but they saw millions of duck. They
only reported 23 taken because of the fact that game warden
Judin is a determined protector
of the game in our midst, and believes in rigid enforcement of law.

Central avenue was treated to a new dress by our efficient road master C. H. Judin on Saturday, which was a very substantial improvement needed since the recent rains.
Our constable, Judin, got busy last week--serving subpoenas--and never let up until he had 15 jurors under the mandate of the court. Fifteen full grown jurors from our little burg make us look like everyone has gone a-fishing. Don't hit us so hard anymore constable!

THOUGHTS--WHERE A STAR FELL
The Collegeport Industrial League, once with ninety members, now gasping for breath with three members: S. W. Corse, Hugo Kundinger and H. A. Clapp. For the interest of the readers I give a list of names of those who were members of the league and community. Events long forgotten will return. Memory of folk well known will come back and reappear, bringing happiness and sorrow. Where are these folk this day? Dead, gone back to their home in the north, a fine type of Americans who had they stayed might have built a town.
Read the list: Theo Smith, W. H. Travis, H. A. Clapp, F. House, L. E. Liggett, H. N. Sholl, Dr. Knight, C. E. Judin, Chas. Pierson, Wes Miller, O. B. Kone, W. B. Gaumer, E. C. Van Ness, A. J. Palmer, Ed Olson, Arthur Morris, H. P. Socks, Burton D. Hurd, C. E. Sterling, Dr. Darling, G. E. Lipsett, J. D. Evans, I. N. Glasser, M. L. Herbage, A. F. Livers, M. A. Travis, W. N. Glasser, J. H. Adams, N. C. Sweet, C. B. Dirke, Geo. A. Lake, O. S. Leach, Cletus Jones, W. W. Wilkinson, Thomas Jones, D. H. Morris, William Pfeiffer, W. R. Cobb, E. L. Ives, George Black, Mac Jones, T. McM. Clark, W. S. Wright, E. L. Gable, Frank Ocutt, H. C. Harrington, G. A. Delaplain, O. Gabelman, Henry Kahnt, G. S. Welsby, J. W. Grimes, L. C. Sellers, Ed Wilder, E. T. Carey, D. E. Hurd, J. W. Maples, L. S. Hutchinson, Robert Murry, E. C. Hoffhines, D. Sachett, J. W. Hansel, W. S. Elmer, Dr. Pridgeon, M. A. Nelson, George Brown, Robert Price and E. A. Holsworth.
Mrs. Roy Nelson brings me a paper printed in Kindersley, Saskatchewan, Canada, which gives an account of the death of Mrs. Chas. Judin. The Judins built the house north of the Holsworth home and lived there several years. Mrs. Judin was a very fine woman, who enjoyed the love and respect of those who knew her and all the early settlers will learn with regret of her passing. Carl Judin lives in Hartford, Conn., while Frank lives on the farm near Kindersley. Mrs. Judin was 55 years of age and died in the local hospital following an operation. The funeral services were held in St. Paul's United Church and interment in the Kindersley cemetery.
