enjamin Alphord Woodward's records cannot be found in Wytheville,
Virginia, because the courthouse was burned during the Civil War. Neither were state records on his name located.
Current information indicates that many Woodwards still live in the area, but Benjamin's family left for Texas by
way of Mobile, Alabama. They were farmers in Robertson County, Texas, and Benjamin died while on a trip to Waco,
Texas, in about 1870, and was buried in an "East Waco" cemetery. His son W. H. "Hal" Woodward was buried in the
Hollywood Cemetery in Houston. The family moved westward and settled in Utopia, a small town west of San Antonio,
and soon moved west again, settling in Alpine in the Big Bend area. John Franklin bought land south of Alpine, and
lived there for the rest of his life. A William Woodward, possibly related, wrote a will in Jefferson County,
Tennessee, on September 11, 1812. His wife was Elizabeth and their children were Abraham, William, Benjamin,
Jesse, and Anna. It appears that Abraham may have been named for his grandfather Woodward. Source: Tommy R. Woodward.
