- X. Theodore Barber
Judge, William Quan (13 April 1851–21 March 1896), Theosophist, was born in Dublin, Ireland, the son of Frederick H. Judge (occupation unknown) and Alice Mary Quan. In 1864 his father, now a widower, emigrated with his children to the United States, eventually settling in Brooklyn. Although the Judges faced hard times as immigrants, William was able to finish his schooling before settling into employment as a law clerk in New York City. Learning law on the job, he was admitted to the State Bar of New York in 1872, the same year he became a naturalized citizen. Two years later he married Ella M. Smith. Living in Brooklyn, the couple had a daughter who died of diphtheria in infancy....
