Woodward Family Tree

Welcome graphic

Welcome! This is a geneaological website for one of the many branches of Woodwards that are direct descendants of Capt. Henry Woodward, hero of the French and Indian War; Captain of the Virginia Militia, and colleague of General George Washington.
 
I have been working on gathering records and putting a family tree together, so that our heritage will not be forgotten in the generations to come. This is a work in progress, and I will be continually adding information to this website.
 
Any and all questions are welcome, just visit the contact page and send me an e-mail. If you are a researcher, or are looking for information pertaining to one person of our family tree, I would like to hear from you.
 
It has taken years to gather the information together to link us to our common ancestor, Capt. Henry Woodward. In addition to names mispellings, wrong birth and death dates, and the hundreds of family trees on Ancestry that have false information, I have run into brick walls left and right concerning the death of Capt. Woodward. How could a man; a hero of the French and Indian War, who was awarded large land grants for his services; just disappear, with all records ending at 1758?
