In Reply to: Woodward (Caven) TX to MS in 1840s by John Flannery of 67

Caven Woodward, if I'm not mistaken, had the ranch on the west side of the Frio River across from the Blackallers and the Hilers. James Harrison Blackaller cowboyed for Louis Oge and possibly one of the Woodwards before he started his own ranch--and, in later years, sold them some horses. I expected to find one or more Woodwards buried in the Frio Town cemetery. I did not. I didn't look in Sabinal or Uvalde but some of those cemetery rosters are on-line. There is at least one Caven Woodward buried in Uvalde County but the one I know about would have been a son or grandson.

The only lead I can think of besides that is to search the Frontier Times magazine. It's searchable online but you have to either go find a library with that old collection or buy the back-issue reprints to get much info. There's a hardcover index for it that covers later issues. Anyway, that little magazine is full of information about John and Caven Woodward and Louis Oge and all those old South Texas ranchers.

If you have trouble breaking into all that information, email me and I'll try to dig a little and do what I can. I don't think we're related but our ancestors certainly knew each other.

By the way, Louis Oge is said to have "taken in" my Blackaller ancestor as an orphan (his daddy was killed in SA in 1852--circumstances unknown). If so, I thank your family on behalf of my family. I'm serious.
