I am looking for details about my great-great grandfather, Philo Ward WOODRUFF and his parents were George WOODRUFF married to Mary Joseph (?).
He was born about 1850s in Massachusetts (no town or county) Guessing at this approximate date by his marriage date where he is listed as 'Of Age'
Philo was a mariner albeit merchant or military & left the USA @ what age not known and dies abroad. He
The only information that I have documented, is that on his marriage certificate (he married outside the USA) and there he lists down his birth place as Massachusetts (no town or county) and further more states that his parents were farmers there.
Unfortunately, this vague piece of information is all that I have.
