I am looking for Alexander Woodside Born 28. 2. 1833 Married Matilda Nicholson 6.8.1834 - 24 - Jan 1900. They had 13 children and I have 3 of their children's information and families.
Please if you have any information please contact me soon. I will be going to Northern Ireland in a Months time to do some research so any pointers will be great. Thank you for your time.
Kathryn Sears nee Beattie My Mum is Margaret Woodside.
I too have heard this rumour from my Mother about being related to the Gaults but have not yet made the connection. I found this on another website. Rootsweb.com
Jul 1999 00:34:29 -0500 From: "C.William Gilbreath" To: WOODSIDE-L@rootsweb.com Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Thomas and James Woodside of County Antrim , Ireland and South Carolina Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1" My ancestor , THOMAS WOODSIDE , came to the United States in the early 1800's , supposedly settling first in the Charleston , South Carolina area. THOMAS was married to a woman named JANE. THOMAS' brother JAMES was married to AGNES GAULT , supposedly JAMES' cousin.JAMES and AGNES raised their family in South Carolina , while my ancestor THOMAS and wife JANE went to Wilkinson County , MS where they raised their family and died. Some of their children , including my ancestor , JANE WOODSIDE , were born in Ireland , while others were born in SC. I am looking for anyone who has any knowledge of these Woodside families. Recently , I was told that there is a book called "The Wham Family History" , in which the following was stated: "Two brothers , William and Joseph Wham , with their father , mother , and their families and two older half brothers,Thomas and James Woodside , came to the United States from Belfast , Northern Ireland on or about 1806. They were shipwrecked and landed at Cuba where they stayed for six months. From there they went to South Carolina .Later they moved to Chester , South Carolina before going upstate to Greenville." Can anyone help me establish the validity of the above claim? Does anyone know where I might find this "Wham Family History"? This is the first time I have ever heard of any connection between the Woodsides and the Whams. ANY help , no matter how semingly insignificant , will be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Sandra Gilbreath iated. Thank you.
