Re: FAMILY HISTORY OF OSCAR WOODRUM FROM WEST VIRGINIA

In Reply to: FAMILY HISTORY OF OSCAR WOODRUM FROM WEST VIRGINIA by RUSSELL G. WOOODRUM of 737

Hi Russell,

I, too, have Woodrum ancestors, so we may be cousins. My great grandmother was Mary Elizabeth Woodrum (b. 1847 in VA), daughter of Bird Woodrum (b. abt. 1810 in VA). I just tried to e-mail you using your old address, but the delivery failed. Do you have a new e-mail?

Here is info I found on Ancestry.com (I think Becky Falin's research is as valid as any I've seen). Let me know if this helps and if you think we might be related.

Best regards,
Barbara

This database contains my ancestors and their descendants and contains all the information I have as of the date above. I've added in documenation to entries and all new entries are referenced, but there are some older entries for which I do not have references. You will want to verify information found here. If you find errors or omissions, please let me know so I can correct them. I would love to post pictures of people in the file also (you will be referenced).
