A Woodward family genealogy chart


Carrie Lyles Traylor's Woodward bloodline is CAPITALIZED. Her other ancestral bloodlines are printed bold.

William B Woodward, Jr emailed me that we descend from Abraham Woodward, who migrated from London to Maryland in the early 1700s, and from there, my ancestor, Thomas "The Regulator" Woodward went to Fairfax, VA, and from there he went to Fairfield County, SC. William B Woodward, Jr also emailed me a link to my cousin General Thomas Simpkins Woodward's story at http://www.mont.mindspring.com/~jtu3/wood/27.12.20.1858.html , from which I obtained information for the chart below. "THE AMERICAN OLD WEST: WOODWARD'S REMINISCENCES" at http://www.mont.mindspring.com/~jtu3/wood/contents.html contains more writings of General Thomas Simpson Woodward, who was born about 1797, and said the name Woodward means "protector of woods".
