Re: Michgan Woodworth
I have this Bio on Mary that is posted on the web. Not in my family line that I know of.
The lady who became Mrs. Woodworth January 15, 1850, was known in her maidenhood as Mary Orcutt, and was then living in Jackson. She was born near Rutland, Vt., in 1829 and is a daughter of Zebina and Mary (Hall) Orcutt, both Vermonters. Mr. Orcutt died in Pennsylvania and Mrs. Orcutt in Chicago, Ill. Dr. Woodworth and his young wife began life together in a modest residence in the village of Leslie, forty years ago, and have labored together to establish a pleasant home which without pretensions to elegance, is encircled by an air of culture and refinement and a delightful retreat from the work and worry of the outside world. The Doctor has secured a comfortable competence and owing to his advanced age, he is now gradually withdrawing from professional duties, and is preparing to spend the evening of his life in quiet retirement. The union of this couple has been blessed by the birth of five children, namely: Mary, Zach, Blanche, Ward and George. The last named child died at the age of two and one-half years, but the others are living.
Dr. Woodworth is personally one of the most agreeable of men, genial and companionable, a man who never fails to make friends wherever he goes. The family occupies a high position in the social circles of this county, and the Doctor's children are helping to reinforce the social prestige which their parents have established. The name of this skillful and useful physician will be held in remembrance long after he has been gathered to his fathers.
