I'm looking for info on Martin WOODRUFF b. aoround 1795 in Bohemia. According to his obit in the Appleton, WI newspaper, he came to the States in 1854, settling in Milwaukee. He has one daughter that I know of: Mary Woodruff Peshek Jolley. He spends the last 20 years of his long life in Green Bay, WI where he dies in 1899 at the age of 104! I can't find any other sources to document his age, wife, or other children. There is another Martin Woodruff that keep popping up in the Green Bay area married to Ann, but the birth dates do not line up. Also, the name Woodruff sounds very English, not German or Slavic, so he might have changed it. I've seen variations that sound similar such as Wotrufe, Votorov, Watruba, etc. Any help would be amazing!
