Re: WOODARD of Culpeper & Rappahannock Co.
Thank you for the interesting family tradition about William Woodard. While I am fairly certain that there are some elements of truth in this story, we will never be able to verify most of this anecdotal information because this Woodard family left very few court records during the 18th century.
However, per my previous post (#1371), William Woodard, Sr. was married to a woman whose Christian name was Jane, not Annie, in 1793 and 1797. This statement can be verified from court records.
