Wow! Have been searching for the "elusive" two sisters for some time. Thank you so much for this information. This is
what I love about genealogy-putting the pieces together.
My husband says to say hello-he is descended from James,
his son Wesley, and his son Wesley! James' son Wesley was a cattle broker in Kansas City, Missouri having his own business in the Kansas City Stock Exchange. His wife, Ruth
(Huston) was considerably younger than her husband and lived
there for many years after Wesley's death in 1936.
The irony is we were so close to Jackson some years back-our son is a military historian and lived in the D.C.
area at the time and we stopped in Hocking County to check
out the area that James and Amanda came to Kansas from. May
have to schedule another trip there-we live in Colorado
so its a ways.
Few questions: the obituary for James states that he
was proceeded in death by two sisters-noted that Mary Ann
was still living in 1915 when James died. Do you think that
there was another sister?
Had thought that there might be a connection to some
Woodfords from Wales-do you have info. on that?
Two Federal censuses indicate that James Woodford's father was born in Virginia (and I think Rosaline's indicated the same)-
Another clue-one of James Woodford's sons, David, became
a horse trainer (he trained famous harness horse, Dan Patch
and Preakness winner in 1912). We believe he worked in
Kentucky for a time with a stables partially owned by a
William Catesby Woodford.
Let me know if any of these jog some thoughts. Again, do appreciate the information and time. I'll try and post anything we may find. Please feel free to contact me by
e-mail at email@example.com.
