Ms. Woodruff, I hope I responded to your question years ago, but if not, I certainly apologize. Yes, ma'am we all came from Newton County, via Oglethorpe County. My great, great grand father was James Monroe Woodruff- Porterdale and he & William Woodruff were brothers. The bulk of our side of the family are buried at Salem Methodist Church( Campground) off Hwy 162, between Conyers and Porterdale. My grandfather- William A. Woodruff migrated to Macon with Bibb Mfg. and my father James A. Woodruff to Fort Mill, S.C. & Springs Mills. The rest of us scattered across the south, but if I can help with any info. from this branch, please let me know.
