harles Woodward's origins are unknown. He was born in about 1755, possibly in North or South Carolina, Virginia, or Connecticut, and in 1804 purchased land called Pole Cat Pond in Barnwell District, South Carolina. He married Keziah Morris and they had eight children, all born in Barnwell District. The family lived next door to the Simeon Cushman family, descendants of the Mayflower, and four Woodward children married Cushmans. Charles' probate and estate settlement as well as family plats and court cases have been located, but no hard evidence on where he came from. He died in Barnwell District, now Montmorenci, before 1813. Research indicates that a Charles C. Woodward and his wife Rebecca lived about 20 miles away in Orangeburg District, South Carolina, but it is unknown whether he was related to our Charles.
