|The Search for Walter
Woodworth's England Origin ... John Brennan's Trip Reports:
In 1999, John Brennan of NY and member of the Rootsweb Woodworth
genealogy list, went to England on business and did some research on
Walter in his spare time. He found two Walter Woodwards in the
Gloucestershire/Liverpool/Cheshire area around 1606 who could possibly
have been a parent of our Walter, but nothing beyond a possibility. His
"trip report" research and conclusions are in the Rootsweb archives at
the following URLs:

WOODWORTH MANUSCRIPT available through LDS
Unpublished Walter Woodworth manuscripts
Maurice Woodworth, James Pearce, and Jeanette Behan released
unpublished manuscripts sometime in the late 1970s or or early 1980s at
locations around the US that form the basis of Jeanette's book, but to
which she later added much more information and updated material in her
Volume 1. What is different from her book is that her Volume 1 listed
generations 1-6, and the manuscripts covered generations 1 through 12 in
separate volumes based on the sons of Walter. Susan Moore lists
here the information regarding those manuscripts. These can be ordered
as "loaners" from Salt Lake City to local LDS history centers:
WOODWORTH ONLINE LIBRARY
The Woodworth Family Newsletter Jeanette (Woodworth) Behan
(deceased) published a series of twelve Woodworth newsletters, beginning
in 1984 and ending in 1986.
Descendants of Walter Woodworth, Scituate, Mass. by Elijah B. Woodworth, published in 1901 This book, despite the title, is not the genealogy of Walter Woodworth, but rather of James Woodworth, great grandchild of Walter Woodworth (Walter 1> Benjamin 2> Benjamin 3> James 4 ). Downloadable book in PDF format. Good information for 4th generation James down. The book is fairly short ... 40 pages or so but graphics turn it into a fairly large 1.3 meg file. Clarifying further, the book lists the children of Walter, but does not show the children of Walter's son Thomas nor who he married, does not show the children of Walter's son Joseph nor who he married, does not show the children of Walter's son Isaac nor who he married, etc.
Samuel (the poet) Woodworth's "Woodworth Book" Contains many of Rev Samuel Dean's errors, but still good info on other matters. (PDF file) The foreword by Sam's grandson states that it is obvious that Samuel just had a fresh read of the error filled Samuel Dean's book.
Life and Descendants of Selah Woodworth, 1750 - 1823, by Leon R. Brown, 1940. Complete book shrunk down to "only" 13.2 megs in a PDF file. Not OCRd, but has good resolution for "zoomability", or enlarging using PDF's zoom-in feature.
Crossing the Plains (PDF file. ) James Woodworth's diary of his 4 month wagon train journey to California. Downloadable complete book. Using a US atlas map and James' descriptions, one can follow the actual route used by James' wagon train.
The Ledger of Lott Woodworth. The business ledger of Lott Woodworth (Maj), woolen manufacturer, of Cambridge, NY. Line is Walter 1, Benjamin 2, Caleb 3, William 4, Lott 5. Book is deteriorated and varies in legibility. Book handed down to the webmeister and brothers Bill and Kirk.
The Diary of Deacon
Elihu Woodworth 1835-1836 Paul Bumpas had this on
his genealogy web site until it went "down". Paul has given
permission for this web site to host the Elihu diary.
