This is clearly JOHN "Stomping John" WOFFORD Sr, one of the "Spartanburg Five" who fought in the Rev War, son of Absalom Wofford & Sarah Hosey, who married Eleanor Sarah Bushrod.
A couple of JOHN WOFFORD Sr's daughters & sons married children of James Bennett Sr. Mark and James Bennett witnessed John's will. The James Bennett who witnessed the will is either James Bennett Sr, or his son James Jr who married JOHN WOFFORD Sr's daughter Precious/Priscilla.
JOHN WOFFORD Sr's son ISAAC WOFFORD, who is mentioned in the will, married JANE/JEAN/JENNIE BENNETT, daughter of James Bennett Sr.
I also have seen JOHN WOFFORD Sr's death indicated as 1812 Madison Co AL, but have never been able to find any records or a will to prove it--have you?
To me, this will proves that JOHN WOFFORD Sr died in Spartanburg SC, not Madison Co AL. However, there is a slight possibility that JOHN WOFFORD Sr wrote his will in Spartanburg SC, died 1812 in Alabama, and the will was probated 1813 in Spartanburg. But I have not found any evidence that would support this theory.
There seems to be a great deal of misinformation and conjecture about this particular family. I have never been able to find any records in SC or MD for JOHN WOFFORD Sr's parents Absalom Wofford & Sarah Hosey, or his wife ELEANOR SARAH BUSHROD.
