Jeff, thanks for responding to this question. Here is what I have on him.

John Samuel Woodall was born 19 Apr 1861 in Decatur, Morgan Co, GA &
died 19 Dec 1940 in Waltreak, Yell Co, AR. He married Lucy Ann
WILLIAMS, 23 Oct 1884 in Scott Co., AR, daughter of David WILLIAMS &
Lucretia PRICE. She was born 29 Dec 1869 , Scott Co, AR & died 26 May
1945 in Waltreak, Yell Co, AR.

In the 1900 U. S. Census, it states that they had 6 children, named:

Susan L. WOODALL, daughter, b. in Mar 1886

Mary D. WOODALL, daughter, b. Mar 1888 (my grandmother). She married
Ollie Cornelius MORRIS.

John D. WOODALL, son, b. Sep 1890

Lilley T. WOODALL, daughter, b. Mar 1893

Joseph W. WOODALL, son, b. Jan 1897

Ether P. WOODALL, daughter, b. Nov 1899

Also living in the household was John Andre, step-father, b. June 1826
in Germany, & cam to the United States in 1832.

Susan F. Andre, mother, b. Feb 1837. I believe her maiden name was UTLEY

Then in the 1930 U. S. Census, - Dwelling #42, Samuel S. WOODALL, head
of household, rents farm, white, 68 years old, married, married at age
23, can read & write, born in AL, father born in GA, mother born in TN,
speaks English, farmer, general farm, not a veteran. Lucy A. WOODALL,
wife, female, white, 60 years old, married, married when age 15, can
read & write, born in AR, father born in TN, mother born TN, speaks English.

So, I believe these are the same people, my Great-grant parents.

I believe John S. WOODALL's dad was Joseph. I am seeking information on
him and his family also.

What does BMD mean in your message? I hope that I haven't bored you.

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

The marriage was of Barber Surgeon John Woodall and his wife Sarah. An extraction on this original record can be found on this website: http://www.familysearch.org<http://www.familysearch.org/<http://www.familysearch.org<http://www.familysearch.org/>>; This primary and secondary record from St. Peter Cornhill's Parish which we personally viewed gave other details such as John's occupation, etc.

His wife's name has never been found on any document. Her name is still unknown to this day. There is no sort of documentation of the identity of the father of John Woodall born approximately 1678. It is true that we do not even know where John who left his 1750 WILL was born. We as researchers of Woodall's who were originally from Virginia for many years (speaking for others such as Verna Perier, Ruth Mason, Steve Woodall & Andy Marshall) believe it is most likely that he probably was born in either MD, VA, or ENG but then there is no document to be found in any courthouse, library, bible record etc. to support this theory.

On the Woodall DNA Project website to this date there are 14 different DNA results. Remember Wood(h)all was a place name, which would explain most different DNA results. Also on the Woodall DNA project website DNA results will show that there were at least 2 William's in VA at the same time and there are two different Woodall Families who attended the St. James Parish In Goochland County.
