Ok I have an Imac but Microsoft Office version does translate this. I got
the family group sheet. It must be just for Fred, since it does not mention
Dorothy. Parents are Frederick Charles Woodrough (1874- no date of death)
and Katherine Gulick, Fred was born in Hawaii. It's got to be the same
family, since Japan is mentioned. If he mentioned the code work and/or his
sister Dorothy, it is definite. She married a newspaper man, my uncle, who
worked for the Advertiser in Tokyo. Here tis J.H. Slavens,1150 Pinnacle Rd.
Henrietta NY 14467 I would be very interested in receiving material. Is the
address in the SSi is Evelyn Woodrough's address? Or do you have the correct
address?
REPLY
Yes, I just got the package and I certainly appreciate all the information.
It clarifies the family stories about Aunt Dorothy. "Twelve Events That
Changed Our World" by George Walton, "Infamy" by John
Toland and "At Dawn We Slept" by Gordon W. Prange mentions Dorothy Edgers and
Fred Woodrough. I'd give a pretty to have an description by either Aunt
Dorothy or Fred on their work in Naval Op Their contributions were
invaluable, as Americans knowlegeable not only about Japanese but about the
culture. I did not know that their mother was Japanese
(Japanese-American?),although I had been told about some Asian ancestry, but
did know about their dad teaching for years at a Tokyo University. Dorothy
and Newton had no children, don't know about Fred. I must contact the Edgers
side of the family with your info. My mom(Jane Edgers) met Dorothy in Tokyo.
At that point Dorothy was married to uncle Newton Edgers.Mom remembered her
as being intelligent and wonderfully chic. Mom was still in Tokyo with Dad
(US diplomat) on Pearl Harbor Day but it looks like Dorothy and Newton got
out one year before. Good thing, journalists that stayed ended up in bad
prisoner of war situations.Mom insisted that Dorothy, Newton and father
Frederick Charles Woodrough all did intelligence work for the USA before
1941. As I said before, I'd love to have a memoir on their intelligence
work.

Biography*2001  This man and his sister were educated in Japan. Apparently their father was a teacher there. As a result both Fred and his sister were fleuent in Japanese.They worked for the government as translators during WWII. They are mentioned in "At Dawn We Slept" which is the story of the Japanes attack on Pearl Harbor. They saw the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor coming through memos they translated, but it was the weekend and they could not convince anyone.

Here is an excerpt from "The Japanese Story of the Battle of Midway":The arduous task of translating this document was accomplished by Mr. Fred Woodrough, Jr., of the Office of Naval Communications. Mr. Woodrough accompanied the Naval Analysis Division to Japan where he served as the Senior interpreter and translator of that group.

Residence1936 He lived in 1936 at 3828 Reading Road, Avondale Cincinnati, Hamilton County, OH; This home belonged to his wife's parents. It seemed strange that Laura Hollmeyer would get the house when there were two other living siblings. MVW asked Laura Steneck about this. Here is Laura's response:
Well....here's my take on the situation: Louis ups and dies, leaving his widow, Catherine and daughter Adaline to live at 3828. Now 1st child Harry August predeceased his father by 2 years (died in 1913), and the other son, George was married with 6 children when Louis died; probably had a rather large house already! So that leaves Laura & Addie. Well, believe it or not, ADDIE got the house! I don't think Laura inherited until Addie died, although Laura and Jay were living there...and Addie died at 3828. Now Addie was left quite well off when Will Cochran died, so she may have transferred 3828 to her sister, so long as she could continue to live there until her death. Addied died in 1946. She was "laid out" in the music room at 3828. I remember going over there for her "wake" with mother and daddy. LGS.6

Anecdote*1979  In 1979 at Fred Woodrough Letter, Silver Spring, Montgomery County, MD, From a letter dated December 31: "Jay Woodrough was a very affable person, most enjoyable to be with and a wonderful conversationalist. He did have one fault: vulnerability to alcohol. I first met him in Los Angeles when I arrived in this country in 1930. He was visiting my Aunt Lutie Clemson, as was I. He, my uncle Howard (my father's and the Judge's brother) and I toured the Grand Canyon area that summer, but before we left on that trip, Jay disappeared from the Clemson household for about four days -- apparently on a binge. He was that type of alcoholic. At all other times, you could not find a finer gentleman. Laura was not with him on that trip so I did not get to meet her until about 1932-3, when my father and I went to Hamilton. She was a wonderful lady in every sense of the word, with firmness and gentleness. Some time later, I visited with John, your father in law, in the Reading Street house. We lived it up, but good, and I think it took all of Laura's influence to keep the family from being kicked out of one of the country clubs., (The Cincinnati Country Club?)
John and I and our dates took it upon ourselves to go swimming in the Club pool at 4 am., and in other ways to make a general nuisance of ourselves. A couple of nights later, we decided at about 2 in the morning to drive to Chicago to go to the World's Fair. We were thwarted in this attempt, and I don't recalll what the direct obstacle was unless it was a sudden discovery that we didn't have enough currency with us.
We saw Jay and Laura another time. They had moved to an apartment by then, and Jay was not well. She was the same lady as ever. Evelyn was with me by then - it must have been in the fifties. We were driving to Columbus to pick up my mother at the air port - she was flying in from Japan. In any event, John, Laura and Evelyn and myself went out to dinner at a hotel. That was the last time I saw any one of them. I did try to call John on at least one other occasion - it must have been in the early to mid sixties, but could get no answer from the number in the book. Subsequently I was told that he was in very bad health then.
There is a thing that comes to mind. With all of his fine gentlemanliness, Jay did, I think, have some bigotted thoughts. Though not much of a churchman himself, he seemed to be very anti-Catholic.
Am I correct in my recollection that your mother-in-law is Catholic and that Jay could never get over his son marrying a Catholic?"9

Birth*5 March 1813 Joseph Woodrough was born on 5 March 1813 at Birmingham, Warwickshire, England.2,1,3 
 He was the son of Joseph Woodrough and Sarah Dodd.1

MARRIAGE*7 September 1845 He married Agnes Moreman, daughter of Richard Moreman and Mary Richards, on 7 September 1845 at Arlington (West Cambridge), Middlesex, MA, Joseph Woodrough and Agnes Moreman published intention of marriage Sept. 7, 1845. Apparently they did not know one another in England and both immigrated independently before 1845. The population of West Cambridge was 1,363 in 1848 making a meeting rather easy. 
Death*9 June 1889 He died on 9 June 1889 at Woburn, Middlesex, MA, at age 76 Joseph's will is recorded in Hamilton Co. Ohio. 1893 but his death was recorded in the Woburn Massachusetts death records.4

Woodrough and James R. Woodrough, now therefore I the said Joseph Woodrough being of lawful age and sound and disposing mind and memory do make the following disposition of my estate. I direct that after my death my wife Agnes Woodrough shall have the use of the income of said twenty three thousand dollars or so much thereof as shall remain at the time of my death as also the increased income if any during her lifetime. Upon the death of my said wife I give the said sum of twenty three thousand dollar or so much thereof as shall remain at the time of my death and any increase thereof to my daughter Mrs. R. W.

Nichols, Thomas M. Larkin and E.B Thomson.4


 
EMAIL*2004  In 2004 Laura Steneck made an educated guess about the early Woodrough family: Henshaw & Woodrough. Here is what I have "discovered" so far: There were 3 handsaw makers (factories?) in BIRMINGHAM, England. There had been others, but they had gone out of business before Woodrough, Clemson or Henshaw were born) Richard William Henshaw married Ann Hyde (his father was Thomas and mother was Maria) on 17th June 1829 at St. Martin's, BIRMINGHAM, WARWICKSHIRE ENGLAND! (He was abt. 29 years old.) (Wm. Clemson born May, 1821 Sutton Coldfield, WARWICKSHIRE ENGLAND) Christened at BIRMINGHAM. (Jos. Woodrough born Mar. 1813, BIRMINGHAM, WARWICKSHIRE ENGLAND) Richard & Ann Henshaw, with son Frederick (age 5) immigrate to the US on 10 Sept. 1841, aboard the ship "England", landing at the port of New York. (Woodrough immigrated about 1843) (Clemson immigrated abt 1842) 1844 (?) Woodrough & Clemson leave Welch & Griffiths and establish "Woodrough & Clemson" (Woodrough being older, named first) April 17, 1848 an ad appears in the Bangor, Maine Daily Whig & Courier: "Henshaw & Woodrough" 36 Congress St. Boston. (Henshaw being older, thus named first) 1850 Census, Richard and Ann Henshaw living in Boston. (Joseph Woodrough & William Clemson living in West Cambridge)
1854 an ad appears in the Scientific American Journal: "Machine Ground Circular Saws (patent applied for). Mill men would do well to try these saws, are perfectly free from thin or thick places, can be used thinner and with less sett. and run faster than any other hitherto made. All diameters and thicknesses warranted perfectly true. HENSHAW & CLEMSON, 31 Exchange St., Boston" (Henshaw being older, thus named first. Did Clemson take over Woodrough? or did Woodrough sell his partnership?) 1860 Richard & Ann Henshaw still living in Boston; Woodrough in Hamilton Ohio; Clemson in Orange Co., New York.
There has to be a connection back in the old country! All of these former partners grew up in BIRMINGHAM, WARWICKSHIRE, ENGLAND! Charles Griffiths (of Welch & Griffiths) was born in Birmingham, Warwickshire England 28 June, 1808 and christened at St. Martins, BIRMINGHAM, WARWICKSHIRE ENGLAND,lived and died in West Cambridge, Mass.???? No wonder Clemson and Woodrough both got jobs at Welch & Griffiths! Clemsom's date of arrival in the US ( as well as Woodrough's) has not been established positively! Clemson's date was taken from the history of the Clemson's in the Ontario & Western magazine (copied from files in Tarpon Springs, Fl) I know for a fact that Amelia Wright, parents and siblings arrived in the US June 13, 1842 and it is said that Clemson "followed her"..guessing he also arrived in 1842/43. Henshaw, Clemson, Griffiths and Woodrough are all connected in Warwickshire England!
Joseph Woodrough PROBABLY arrived either late 1842 or early 1843, and went to work for Welch & Griffiths (saw makers) as soon as he arrived. Chas. Griffiths, after all, was christened at the same church as Woodrough (Clemson & Henshaw) so W & G PROBABLY provided jobs for men who came from their parish (hometown) in England! Welch & Griffiths was established in 1830 (according to an ad, which said "since 1830") Have not yet discovered Welch's first name, but did find Griffiths. Now, Amelia (married Clemson) came over in 1842 (June 13th, to be exact) and Wm. Clemson supposedly followed her..... so he PROBABLY arrived late 1842, early 1843 also! (Imagine that! Wm. Clemson was chasing a 15 year old girl!!!!! And he an "older" man of 21!) Now Richard HENSHAW, another member in this tangle, immigrated on Sept. 10, 1841. (joins in partnership with Woodrough, took over the Sutton Hdwe. Co. which becomes Henshaw & Woodrough sometime before or during 1848) Nothing available online about old companies and when they began and ended. Such a list would be useful! LGS. 
Employment1843 He was employed by He worked at Welch and Griffith hand saw manufactory in Arlington Massachusetts.

CENSUS1850*6 September 1850 He appeared on the CENSUS on 6 September 1850 at West Cambridge, MA; He is shown living with his family and two young men both of whom are shown as sawmakers. It appears that Joseph came to the United States already well-trained in his business and rented rooms to employees, Howard Nash and Duncan Mc Farland. The Woodrough home was not far from the Clemson/Wright home.

From the small shop in West Cambridge, the business was moved in 1852 to Woburn, where it occupied the old factory of the Goodyear Rubber Company. A year later Mr. Woodrough withdrew from the firm and the name became Henshaw & Clemson.5 
Employment*1854  In 1854 at Cincinnati, Hamilton County, OH, He was a partner at Woodrough and McParlin making saws. The Centennial Review of Cincinnati gives an interesting account of the Woodrough and McParlin Company saying: They are manufacturer of saws, plastering trowels etc. located on the S.E. corner of 6th and Hoadly St. "This house was the first to engage exclusively in the manufacturer of saws in the west. It was established in 1854. Located in a five story building they employeed 150-175 skilled operatives. The speciality of the house is a process for tempering saws and plastering trowels which has gained for the manufacturer both reputation and sale. They trade with all states of the union and a flourishing branch has been established at 19 Lake Street in Chicago. Among the prominent manufactureres of Cincinnatti, this house stands without a superior and has been for many years noted for its enterprise and consistent prudent management.6,7
BUSINESS*1857 He was in business in 1857 at Hamilton, Butler County, OH; According to "A Concise History of Hamilton, Ohio", Stephen D. Cone - 1901- pg.306: In 1857, Joseph Woodrough, Michael McParlin and Henry C. Dunn, under the firm name of Woodrough, McParlin & Dunn, opened a saw factory on the upper hydraulic, in the old cotton mill building. At this date they employed twenty hands and manufactured saws to the amount of $20,000. per annum. Late in the sixties the establishment was removed to Cincinnati." 
CENSUS1860*1860 He appeared on the census in 1860 at Butler County, OH; The census shows the Woodrough family living with three people who were likely boarders: Richard Smith, 20 a saw maker born in England, Thomas Bowe, 18, saw maker born in England and Marja Bryan, 23 a female born in Massachusetts. A neighbor, Mr. Hammill (from Ireland), also housed a number of saw makers and machinists from England, all in their 20s.8 
Biography*1862  In 1862 he started his business in Worchester Massachusetts and later moved to Hamilton, Ohio and from there to Cincinnati. His family lived next door to the Beckett Paper Company in Hamilton, Ohio in what Judge Woodrough (his grandson) called "a little cottage."9 
City Direc1862  In 1862 at Cincinnati, OH, there was a listing in the Cincinnati City Directory - pg.341: Woodrough, Joseph [Woodrough & McParlin] res. Hamilton, O. Woodrough & McParlin [Joseph W. Michael Mc P. & Henry C. Dunn] Manufacturers of Patent Ground Saws, 10 W. 2d. 
City Direc1863  In 1863 at Cincinnati, OH, there is a listing in the Cincinnati City Directory - pg. 360:Woodrough, Joseph [W. & McParlin] res. Hamilton Woodrough & McParlin [Joseph W., Michael P. & Henry C. Dunn] saw manuf. 10 W. 2d. 
PATENT*23 July 1864 He received a patent on 23 July 1864 at Cincinnati, OH; In the middle of the 19th century Joseph was granted a number of patents for saws. Here are two of them:54827 - Joseph - Saw Teeth 61014 - Martin & Woodrough (Joseph) - Saw Teeth.10 
City Direc*1868  In 1868 at Middlesex, MA, he is shown on the city directory; The city directory for Middlesex Massachusetts lists a saw manufacturer named Henshaw and Co. at the location of the later Woodrough Company at Railroad St, East Woburn. A Google search turned up a reference to Woodrough Pond (historical) Middlesex County Massachusetts MA Latitude: 42.472222 N Longitude: 71.138889 W Lexington Quadrangle, it seems that the pond (now gone) was once the source of water that flowed down a mill race to power the saw making machinery.11 
CENSUS1870*1870 He appeared on the census in 1870 at Hamilton, Butler-St Clair Township, OH.12 
LOCATIOND*1871  In 1871 at Cincinnati, OH, Woodrough and Mc Parlin was located at #12 and # 14 West 2nd St. in Cincinnati. 
City Direc1874  In 1874 at MA the saw manufacturer now called Woodrough and Co. at Railroad St in East Woburn. A map also shows the J. Woodrough residence.11
Note*1875  The precise location of the Woodrough Massachusetts factory was discovered on an old area map. Apparently, there was a pond known as Woodrough Pond that sent water down a mill race to drive the manufacturing equipment. in 1875 at MA.13
WOODROUGH POND

City Direc1877  In 1877 at MA it appears there are two saw makers at same location. First is called Clemson and Co. and the second is Woodrough. D. McFarlane is with the Clemson firm, and he later joined Woodrough in Cincinnati. Also Joseph is listed as a voter in Woburn.11 
CENSUS1880*1880 He appeared on the Census in 1880 at Cincinnati, OH.14,15

City Direc1883  In 1883 at Montvale, Middlesex, MA, The Massachusetts Woodrough Company is no longer listed. The saw company is now called Clemson and Company. The location is the same, but the street name changed from Railroad to Montvale Ave.11 
City Direc1886 He was in city directory in 1886 at MA; There is a saw company now called Woodrough and Clemson located on Montvale Ave. This is likely Herbert H. Woodrough now in business with Richard W. Clemson. Both men would eventually build large winter homes in Tarpon Springs Florida. The Clemson home remains in Tarpon Springs in 2006. The Woodrough home was torn down.11 
Will*19 March 1889 He left a will on 19 March 1889 at Montvale, MA, Whereas I, Joseph Woodrough of Montvale in the State of Massachusetts have sold and conveyed to Louis Duhme of the city of Cincinnati Ohio and to Rufus L. Woodrough of the city of Chicago Illinois each the one half of my interest in the business stocks, credits? machinery, goods, chattels; stocks, promissory notes, property and effects of the firm of Woodrough and McParlin now doing business in the City of Cincinnati State of Ohio, and in the perpetual leasehold estate on the southeast corner of Sixth and Hoadly streets in said city of Cincinnati upon which the place of business and manufactory now stands for the sum of twenty three thousand dollars and whereas the said sum of twenty three thousand dollars represents about or nearly my entire estate remaining after having made provision for my two sons Horace M. Woodrough and James R. Woodrough, now therefore I the said Joseph Woodrough being of lawful age and sound and disposing mind and memory do make the following disposition of my estate. I direct that after my death my wife Agnes Woodrough shall have the use of the income of said twenty three thousand dollars or so much thereof as shall remain at the time of my death as also the increased income if any during her lifetime. Upon the death of my said wife I give the said sum of twenty three thousand dollar or so much thereof as shall remain at the time of my death and any increase thereof to my daughter Mrs. R. W. Clemson, my son Herbert H Woodrough and my son Rufus L. Woodrough share and share alike. In witness whereof I have hereunto set my hand and seal this 19th day of March in the year 1889. Witness B. W. Nichols, Thomas M. Larkin and E.B Thomson. 
NEWSPAPER*1892  In 1892 at NY there was a newspaper account telling how the National Saw Company was formed; 1892 - Olean Democrat, Olean New York, February 4, 1892:
"THE SAW TRUST - How it Prevents Foreign Competition and Disposes of Its Surplus The movement which brought about the consolidation of all of the concerns making saws in the United States, was begun nearly two years ago. The first step taken was the consolidation of the Wheeler, Madden & Clemson Manufacturing company, and the Monhagen Steel works, both at Middletown, New York; the Woodrough & Clemson company, of Boston, and the Woodrough & McParlin company, of Cincinnati, into one corporation under the name of the National Saw company. It was believed at the time, and it was so announced to the trade that this combination was to be independent of all others, and would compete vigorously with the latter. When, however, the Disstons, of Philadelphia, had secured control of the Richardson Saw company, of Newark, N. J., and several other smaller companies, it was found that they were the organizers of the National Saw company, also, and that they had thus gained control of all the factories of any importance in the United States. 
Residence*27 January 1893  On 27 January 1893 at Montvale, MA; A Mrs. P(R?).W. Clemson was shown living with the family. No mention of wife. (I do not know what this means.) Found this residence information at Largo FL Lib 1997.

    CORRESPONDENCE
    "The Way Saws are Straightened"
    Messrs Editors: Permit me to correct your reply to "P. D. G. of New York" on page 13, current volume of the Scientific American. The writer, as well as other members of our firm, is a practical sawmaker. Circular saws, 6 by 12 inches face, slightly convex, are straightened on an anvil by hammers weighing from 8 to 10 lbs. One hammer is used for this purpose which is called the "cross faced hammer". It strikes a blow one inch long and three-sixteenths of an inch wide. With it we work on the high places and twists of the plate. The other we term the "round-faced hammer", which makes a blow in shape and size of a five-cent silver coin (if you can recollect that!), to stretch the steel in whatever way needed to stiffen (straighten?) the saw after being buckled. There is such a machine as you describe, used by Waterman of Brooklyn, N. Y., to chill saw plates, after which he straightens them as above.               Woodrough, McParlin & Dunn

A year later, he was elected a Texas state judge. Following his term as a state judge, he served as County Attorney of Ward County, Texas until 1897 when he returned to Nebraska to practice law until his appointment to the federal trial bench in 1916 by President Woodrow Wilson.

Death*15 May 2007 She died on 15 May 2007 at Clearwater, Pinellas County, FL, at age 67 Dear ones, Laurie died at 5:08 this morning. Susie came in at 1:00 am and she and Dad and Ron were with Laurie. She had been sleeping since 10:00 AM on Sunday and was not able to communicate during the last 24 hours. She is finally at rest after a long ordeal. All of her children were in this past weekend to see her.
Susie is staying a week or so and she and I will try to help Ron sort things out. Its very sad, but I think all of us were able to say what we wanted to her and she was able to finish the work she set for herself. She did a wonderful job of transcribing the Wimmer diaries, and also the diaries of her grandfather as well as the Woodrough Story, but her greatest accomplishment was the transcription of the Shoebox letters and the integration of them with the love letters. Seldom does a family have a window into the thoughts of their ancestors. We do and I think these letters will be even greater treasures for the kidlets as they mature.
I'll keep you posted on plans as they develop. Love to all and be grateful for a life well-lived by Laurie. Margot.

Note* He August 2007. I've always wondered where the middle name of Duhme came from. I still do not know, but the name of a prominent store selling silver, gold etc. in Cincinnatti was Duhme and Co. Herman Duhme was forn in 1819 in Germany and his shop became the "Tiffany" of Cincinnati. He died in 1888. His business continued 1896 when the name changed to the Duhme Jewelry Company run by Herman and Oscar Keck.

Employment*1919 He was employed by President; Monitor Stove Company
Louis D. Woodrough, president of the former Monitor Stove and Range Co., once the nation's largest manufacturer of furnaces, died yesterday at Jewish Hospital. Mr. Woodrough, 87, lived at the Oak Pavilion Nursing Home 510 Oak Street. He patented a special pipeless furnace just before World War I. "The furnace" revolutionized heating in farm and country homes," F.C. Baer, a close friend and former business associate, said. The furnace had one register which circulated warm air up into the house. Cool air went down, around the casing, cooling the furnace, Baer said. In 1917 nearly 40,000 furnaces were sold by the Monitor Co., the largest number in the country that year, according to Baer. But the aging plant on Gest street in the West End where the furnaces were made closed in 1922, and Mr. Woodrough went to work for the Sunbeam Furnace Co., in Elyria, Ohio. He held executive positions with other furnace companies, and in his later years worked as a business broker and marketing specialist. Text of obituary for L.D. Woodrough in 1919 at Cincinnati, OH.5

CENSUS1910*1910  In 1910 I printed out the page and the line 93 that is Rufus Lee. I just cannot figure out where he is in 1900! NO ONE seems to be able to locate him!
I've written to Linda to see if he just MIGHT be living with Jean's father, John, in Cincinnati, as her mother died in 1890 and she might be living there and taking care of him! Amazing that Rufus got out of the "traveling agent" business and went to work managing a brick company in Indianapolis. It appears that they are living in a "rooming house" in 1910. (note from LWS)

UNITED STATES PATENT OFFICE
JAMES R. WOODROUGH, OF CINCINNATI, OHIO, ASSIGNOR TO WOODROUGH & McPARLIN, OF SAME PLACE. DESIGN FOR SAW-HANDLES. SPECIFICATION forming part of Design No. 11,603, dated January 13, 1880.
Application filed October 22, 1879. Term of patent 7 years. To all whom it may concern: Be it known that I, James R. Woodrough, of Cincinnati, Hamilton County, Ohio, have originated and designed a new Pattern for Handsaw- Handles, of which the following is a full, clear, and exact description, reference being had to the accompanying d rawing, making a part of this specification. My design consists in the application of an ornamental head to the front end of a saw-handle, &c.I prefer to carve the head from the same piece of which the handle is constructed; but it may be made of a separate piece of wood or metal and attached to the handle, should the manufacturer so desire, and still fall within the scope of my design. What I claim as my invention, and desire to secure by Letters Patent, is --A design for handsaw-handles, consisting of the ordinary form of handle, its front end being provided with an ornamental head projecting from said front end over the blade of the saw, substantially as shown.
JAS. R. WOODROUGH.
Attest:JNO. W. STREHLI, E. H. FOSTER.
Here is a description in 2001:
WOODROUGH & MCPARLIN. Detailed panther head carved into both sides of the applewood handle. Patent date ink stamp still remains clear on handle, Jnr’y 13, 1880. Logo with panther on blade is fully readable and clear. This saw is in great condition and is the early panther type with the more detailed handle carving. A very rare Cincinnati saw in top shelf condition. Certainly one of the finest available.

  1. [S43] Violet B. Jersey, "LDS Record", Annotation: In 1951 information was submitted to LDS regarding the Wilson/Woodrough family. It was based upon information of a Miss Isobelle Beardsley. The information was entirely accurate. It can be inferred that this Miss Beardsley was perhaps the child of one of the Wilson girls listed in the family. Perhaps she was the child of Isobelle Wilson (or her sister's child).

    Violet B. Jersey submitted the information to LDS and claimed to be a fourth cousin of the Woodrough family shown on her sheet.
