Can anyone help me? I have hunted for 20 years for relatives of Benjamin Woodruff, born 1772, married Judah or Cynthia_____ born 1777. I do not know of any of their children except for Joseph Tinsley Woodruff born 1807 died
1857, married Eliza Ann Ragan. I have considerable info on Joseph Tinsley's and Eliza Ann's children on down.

I would like to find out about Benjamin's family and his parents; through the years, I have consistently heard Major
Joseph Woodruff and Mary Forester named as Benjamin's parents. Whenever I have researched this name,Benjamin has never appeared as a child. I am at a total loss. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it so much, and I will be happy to share my information with you all.
Thanks, jwh

I am researching the Ragan family line and have some information on your Joseph T Woodruff. Elizabeth Ann Ragan daughter of Hamilton Ragan and Keisha Hendon born 5-22-1813 in GA she died 10-01-1858 in GA. Elizabeth Ann Ragan married Joseph Tinsley Woodrub 11-25-1829 in Walton County GA. He is the son of Benjamin Woodruff and Judah England and was born 4-17-1807 in GA and died 11-25-1859 in GA - Joseph Woodruff probated and handled the estate of his wife's father Hamilton Ragan. He had at least one brother Clifford Woodruff . Any information shared would be greatly appreciated! Also I have a photo of the Woodruff family taken in Walton County abt 1900.

Benjamin Hill Woodruff is my grandfather, married to Eula Mae Dollar. His parents are John W. Woodruff and Frances (maiden name unknown to me). They lived in Meriwether County, GA. Could they be possibly related? Any information will be greatly appreciated. Patnhermie@aol.com

Benjamin Woodruff was my great, great, great, great grandfather. According to my info, he was born 05/17/1772; not sure where. He married Cynthia Judah England (10/04/1777 - 1820) and they had two sons, Reuben Nicholas Woodruff (born 1796, possibly in Va., died 1872) and Joseph Tinsley Woodruff (04/17/1807 - 11/25/1859). Reuben married Frances Loucinda Roseberry and they had at least 7 children, with one of them being George W. Woodruff, my gf's gf, who died in the Civil War. After Cynthia Judah England died, the same year Benjamin married Sally O'Kelly and had 10-11 other children by her. In regard to Benjamin's father, I believe it was Clifford Woodruff. He was born around 1735. It has been suggested that he came from Va. Regardless of where he was born, he bought 200 acres of land in Oglethorpe Co., Ga. on 12/08/1795. He died there just before 09/09/1840 at the age of 104. His will was processed in Oglethorpe Co. He was married to Sarah Burdett. Does this info help you? I am trying to learn more about Clifford-where he was born and who his parents were. No luck thus far. DWH

I saw your post on Benjamin & Joseph Woodruff families. Would you mind scanning the photo you have and sending it to me? We share the same Woodruff lineage from Benjamin Woodruff and Judah England on back. I have been unable to get past Clifford Woodruff whom I believe was born in VA in 1735 and died in Oglethorpe Co., GA in 1840. Do you have more info? Thanks.

Hello: I am a person of color looking to communicate with other Ga Woodruff's. My Woodruff's were in slaved in Merriwether co in Grantville later of Coweta co. There was a slave on Johns His list of slaves that match the 1840 birth date of Oran. Oran Woodruff had a brother Joseph, and Bella, and possibly mother Bettio. I also have a Great Uncle by the name Ben on some documents and Glen on others? I have made more the one trip to Newnan, Coweta co. and none to Merriwether. I would like to hear from you if possible.
