Thank you for your reply.
So far, all of my Woodruff's have lived in and around Byromville in Dooly County, GA. I've really just started researching. The fartherest I have been able to trace is Reuben Portlock Woodruff b.1853, married to Anna(Annie) Williams b. 1859. The only children I know of, as yet, are Oscar V. b.1879 d. 11/17/1938 and T. P. Woodruff(b. ?).
I had thought Portlock might be a family name and a possible connection.
