Joellen -- a couple of things to correct my previous posts as well as to add to the children of John Brown and Lelia E. (Crane) Woodyard.They had two other, older daughters who must have died in their teens:Alice B. Woodyard who was born in 1902 and Elizabeth Hamilton Woodyard born in 1904.Then they had Ruth, Ellen, Howard and James.
Also, Jeremiah Chase Woodyard was the son of Jeremiah and Hannah (Chase) Woodyard and his wife Ellen Mariah Brown who was the daughter of John and Susan (Green) Brown (try to avoid any "color" commentary there).He was a wool dealer in Athens County.
His father, Jeremiah Woodyard was the son of James and Anna Maria (Root/Routt) Woodyard and the grandson of Jeremiah and Elizabeth (Thompson) Woodyard and of John and Mary (Withers) Routt of Fauquier County, VA.Elizabeth Thompson Woodyard was the daughter of James and Susannah (Jarboe) Thompson of St. Mary's County, MD.
Jeremiah Woodyard was the youngest son of Henry and Margaret (Martin) Woodyard of Charles County, MD.Henry was the elder son of John Jr. and Jane (Browne) Woodyard; John Woodyard Jr. was the immigrant from Norwich, England.
Let me know if you want particulars such as dates & places.
