    1. [HALSTEAD] WOODRUFF - HALSTEAD Family Photograph
    2. Shelley Cardiel via
    3. I've "rescued" an old photograph identified as that of Charley WOODRUFF and his wife Matie which was taken at the Hutchings Railroad Photo Car Studio. Their Studios traveled by rail all over the country so it could have been taken any place. It appears to have been taken in the 1880's with the couple appearing to be in their 20's at the time. In addition to their names, someone has written "From a Chippewa friend to Ruth - With Love and Gratitude to Gene". Appears to suggest that it was a gift to Ruth and Gene and that Charley and/or Matie may have been from "Chippewa"? Based on limited research I was able to locate the following regarding this couple: Charles A. WOODRUFF Jr. was b. 14 Nov 1861 in Virginia, the son of Charles WOODRUFF (b. abt 1834 in Chemung, NY) and Emily HALSTEAD (b. 19 Nov 1836 in Minisink or Port Jervis, NY - d. 1864 in VA). Charles was the youngest of 4 children, his three older siblings were, Estella, Frances, and William WOODRUFF, born between 1855 and 1859. Charles married Martha THOMPSON. Charles died 9 Jul 1909 of Tuberculosis in Springfield Township, Bradford Co., PA. Census records provide the following details: 1900 census of Chemung, NY: Charles WOODRUFF, age 39, born Nov 1861, married 13 years, born VA, parents born PA, a Farmer Martha WOODRUFF, wife, age 32, born Feb 1868, married 13 years, no children, born NY, parents born PA/NY Celia THOMPSON, sister-in-law, age 46, born NY, parents born PA/NY, a Dressmaker + 1 Employee I am hoping to locate someone from this family so that the photograph can be returned to the care of family. If you are a member of this family, or you know someone who might be, please contact me. Thanks, Shelley

Author: hbowen871 Surnames: Classification: queries Message Board URL: http://boards.rootsweb.com/surnames.halstead/506/mb.ashx Message Board Post: I'm looking for any information regarding Eliza Halstead Ferrell of Boone Co, WV and her husband Morris Ferrell. She was born about 1833 in Logan County, WV to parents Joseph Halstead (son of Amos Halstead) and Margaret Brown. The couple had three children: Emmeline (1854), Ruth (1858) and Morris (1860). Morris (Sr) disappears between the 1860 and 1870 census but I cannot find a death certificate, I am not sure if he died (Possibly during the civil war? Family lore has it he was a confederate soldier however I cannot find any record of this) or if they divorced. The last time I can find Eliza Halstead for sure is the 1870 census living in Sherman, Boone, WV with her three children. There is however and Eliza Ferrell living in the Weston Hospital in 1880 who died there in 1899. This is the only Eliza Ferrell I can find in the WV death records the correct age but of course, no parents listed as she died at the hospital, so no idea if this is even the same Eliza A. Ferrell. Does anyone know anything about this Eliza Ferrell, her husband or her children? Important Note: The author of this message may not be subscribed to this list.
