Line of Descent from
Robert Wheaton, Immigrant about 1636,
to Lulu (Woodruff) (Lezenby) Gilday (1877-1953)
Woodruff Ancestors

Thomas Woodruff, of Gloucestershire, England, his wife Edith and their children, Thomas, Edith, John and Isaac, and servant Alice Harvey, departed from London some time between 19 August and 7 September 1678, on the Success, Stephen Nichols, Master. They had another child, Mary, born at sea. They arrived at Salem, New Jersey, on April 1679.[1] One possible explaination for the long voyage is that they could have stopped in Bermuda or the Caribbean on the way. Thomas and Edith are the probable ancestors of most of the Woodruffs of south Jersey, including Enos. However, I have not been able to document the connection. Enos could be a grandson of one of Thomas Woodruff's sons.

The line of accent from Samuel Barker Woodruff to Enos Woodruff has been reported in the application for membership in the Sons of the American Revolutiuon, of Henry Haas Umberger, Junior, which provides a clear "roadmap" this web page follows.


FOURTH GENERATION

ENOS WOODRUFF was born about 1719, and died at Greenwich, Cumberland County, New Jersey, on 23 December 1795. He married on 14 July 1745 SARAH4 WHEATON (Noah3, Samuel2, Robert1) a daughter of Noah and Sarah Wheaton . She was born at Salem County, New Jersey, before 20 December 1715 (her father's will) and died at Greenwich on 6 January 1799.[2]

Enos and Sarah (Wheaton) Woodruff both lived long lives in Greenwich; their children are remembered in their wills.

Enos Woodruff and his wife Sarah Wheaton had the following children:[3]

  1. ABNER5 WOODRUFF b. at Greenwich on 14 July 1745; d. there on 28 December 1795; m. at Cumberland County on 15 October 1766 PHEBE EWING, b. at Greenwich on 14 May 1746, d. there on 26 January 1801.
  2. ENOS5 WOODRUFF Jr. b. at Greenwich on 12 April 1751.
  3. SABRA5 WOODRUFF b. on 1753; m. at Greenwich on 5 January 1785 BENJAMIN PECK.
  4. MARY5 WOODRUFF m. ________ SAYRE.
  5. SARAH5 WOODRUFF m. at Cumberland county on 5 August 1775 DANIEL MASKELL.

FIFTH GENERATION

ENOS5 WOODRUFF, Jr. (Sarah Wheaton4, Noah3, Samuel2 Robert1) was born at Greenwich on 12 April 1751 a son of Enos Woodruff and his wife Sarah Wheaton. He died at Greenwich on 19 September 1805. He married at Greenwich on 16 August 1788 MARY FOSTER. She was born on 1761 and died at Cumberland, Cumberland County, on 12 May 1829. Mary married second at Cumberland County on 13 December 1808 DAVID MILLS.[4]

Enos Woodruff fought in the American Revolution, serving as an Ensign in the Greenwich Company, Second Regiment, Cumberland County militia, recorded on 7 April 1783.[5] It is not clear from this record when he enlisted and when he was discharged; only that he was in the militia at the end of ther war. After the war, at the age of thirty-seven, Enos married twenty-seven year old Mary Foster. Enos died at the age of fifty-four, leaving his forty-four year old wife with sons aged ten and four, perhaps others. Three years later widow Mary (Foster) Woodruff married David Mills.

I do not have any further information on the David Mills family. As Enos died without a will, I do not have a list of children from that source. I only know about two sons because applicants for membership in heritage societies have used these two sons to trace their descent from Enos Woodruff, Revolutionary soldier.

Enos Woodruff, Jr., and his wife Mary Foster had the following children:

  1. ENOS6 WOODRUFF III b. at Greenwich about 1794-5; d. there on 18 November 1874; m. at Cumberland County on 3 January 1816 RHODA JONES, d. at Greenwich on 24 April 1862.[6]
  2. JOSEPH WEST6 WOODRUFF b. at New Jersey on5 August 1801.

SIXTH GENERATION

JOSEPH WEST6 WOODRUFF (Enos5, Sarah Wheaton4, Noah3, Samuel2, Robert1) was born at New Jersey on 5 August 1801 a son of Enos Woodruff, Jr., and his wife Mary Foster . He died at Bridgeton, Cumberland County, on 19 June, 1874. He married at Trenton, Mercer County, New Jersey, on 2 February 1833 MARY P. BARKER. She was born at New Jersey on 30 May 1800 and died at Maurice River, Cumberland County, on 20 November 1866.[7]

When Joseph Woodruff was four years old his father died; three years later his mother remarried, and he grew up in the home headed by David Mills. When Joseph was twenty years old he married twenty-one year old Mary Barker.

According to census records, the Joseph W. Woodruff family lived in Hopewell Township, Cumberland County, in 1840,[8] in Cohansey Township in 1850, and in Bridgeton in 1860. This does not necessarily mean that the family moved, as Cohansey Township was created in 1848 from part of Hopewell Township, and in 1865 merged with Bridgeton Township to form the city of Bridgeton. Joseph was described as a farmer in the 1850 and 1860 censuses, a lumber dealer in 1870.

The 1850 Census reported the Joseph Woodruff family in Cohansey Township as follows:[9]

Line Name Age Sex Occupation R.E. Birthplace Other
14. Joseph Woodruff 49 M farmer $5500 NJ
17. Mary P. Woodruff 50 F NJ
18. Ruth M. Woodruff 20 F NJ
19. Nathaniel F. Woodruff 18 M NJ
20. Samuel Woodruff 13 M PA school
21. Martha F. Woodruff 7 F NJ

The 1855 New Jersey State Census reported the Joseph W. Woodruff household consisting of four males and two females,[10] which suggests that oldest daughter Ruth was no longer in the home.

The 1860 Census reported only one child still at home. That census reported Joseph Woodruff, 59, farmer, Mary, 60, his wife, and Martha, 18, working as a domestic. Joseph must have been a prosperous farmer, as he reported real estate valued at $10,000 and a personal estate of $20,000.[11] The very next entry in the census was for son Samuel Woodruff, 22, farmer, wife Martha, 19, and Eva, 1.[12] Son Nathaniel Woodruff, 26, farmer, was reported at Queen Anne's County, Maryland (Millington Post Office), with wife Susan, 26, and a couple of farm hands. He had real estate valued at $3000 and a personal estate of $1500.[13] I have not been able to find daughter Ruth in this census. Like her brothers, she may have married, but I do not know her married name.

By the time of the 1870 Census all the children had left home. Joseph Woodruff, 69, lumber dealer, and Mary, 70, continued to live in Bridgeton.[14] The children were also reported in that census:

Daughter Martha Woodruff married about 1870-1 Daniel Barber, a veteran of the Civil War. Joseph Woodruff died in 1874. The 1880 Census reported widow Mary Woodruff living with her daughter and son-in-law, Martha and Daniel Barber, and their one year-old daughter, at Millville. Daniel worked in a glass house.[17] Son Nathaniel had moved to Camden, Camden County, New Jersey, where he lived with his wife and four children and worked as a grocer.[18] Son Samuel continued to live at Bridgeton, where he was reported with his wife and four children. He continued to work as a watchmaker.[19] Mary (Barker) Woodruff died in 1886.

Joseph Woodruff and his wife Mary Barker had the following children:[20]

  1. RUTH M.7 WOODRUFF b. at New Jersey about 1829-30.
  2. NATHANIEL FORBES7 WOODRUFF b. at New Jersey on 11 May 1833; d. at Bala Cynwyd, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, on 23 January 1905; m. SUSAN GOODWIN FOGG, b. at Salem County on 1833, d. at Camden on 22 January 1889. Children of Nathaniel and Susan:
    1. Frank Woodruff b. on 1860, d. on 19 March 1880
    2. Mary Emily Woodruff b. at Queen Ann's County on 29 July 1862, d. at Glendale, Los Angeles County, California, on 31 March 1953; m. Elmer Baird Riggs b. at New Jersey on 9 March 1862, d. at Glendale on 18 January 1928.
    3. William Woodruff b. at New Jersey about 1864-5.
    4. Clement H. Woodruff b. at Cumberland County on 8 May 1869, d. at Pennsauken, Camden County, on 19 September 1954.
    5. Preston Woodruff b. on 1878, d. on 22 January 1897.
  3. SAMUEL BARKER7 WOODRUFF b. at New Jersey on 10 July 1837.
  4. MARTHA F.7 WOODRUFF b. at New Jersey about 1842-3; m. Daniel Barber, b. at New Jersey about 1849-50. Child of Martha and Daniel:
    1. Sabra Barber b. at New Jersey about 1878-9.

SEVENTH GENERATION

SAMUEL BARKER7 WOODRUFF (Joseph6, Enos5, Sarah Wheaton4, Noah3, Samuel2, Robert1 ) was born at New Jersey on 10 July 1837 a son of Joseph West Woodruff and his wife Mary Barker . He died at Trenton on 12 March 1888. He married on 20 January 1858 MARTHA HATTIE REEVES. She was born at New Jersey on 26 August 1839, a daughter of Lemuel and Mary (Powers) Reeves. She died at Atlantic City, Atlantic County, New Jersey, on 20 November 1916.[21] Martha may have married, after 1888, ________ DEMARIS, who died before 1900.

Samuel Woodruff and Martha Reeves both grew up in Cumberland County, and lived there all their lives. Samuel was described in the 1860 census as a farmer, in 1870 as a watch repairer, in 1880 a watchmaker, and on his death record in 1888 as a jeweler.

In 1860 Samuel and Martha and their one-year-old daughter Eva, were living at Bridgeton in close proximity to Samuel's parents; at least they are next to each other on the census record.[22] The 1865 New Jersey State Census reported the Samuel Woodruff family at Bridgeton, consisting of 3 males and 3 females.[23] This corresponds to the information we have on this family from other sources.

The 1870 Census found the growing family at Bridgeton as follows:[24]

Line Name Age Sex Race Occupation R.E. P.E. Birth
38. Woodruff, Samuel 32 M W watch repairer $500 NJ
39. Woodruff, Martha 31 F W keeps house NJ
40. Woodruff, Eva 12 F W NJ
1. Woodruff, Ida 11 F W NJ
2. Woodruff, Henry 8 M W NJ
3. Woodruff, Joseph 5 M W NJ
4. Woodruff, Lemuel 3 M W NJ
5. Woodruff, Frederick 1 M W NJ

The four oldest children were all in school.

Eva married in 1875, Ida in 1877. The 1880 Census revealed a Samuel Woodruff family on Elizabeth Street, Bridgeton, of about the same size, as older children had left but new ones had been born:[25]

Line Name Race Sex Age Related MS Occupation B FB MB
20. Woodruff, Samuel B. W M 42 M watch maker NJ NJ NJ
21. Woodruff, Martha H. W F 40 wife M keeps house NJ NJ NJ

23. Woodruff, William H. W M 7 son S NJ NJ NJ
24. Woodruff, Lula A. W F 3 daughter S NJ NJ NJ
25. Woodruff, Edna R. W F 5/12 daughter S NJ NJ NJ

The record also stated that Frederick and William attended school, Frederick could not write, and Edna was born in December. Of the other children in the 1880 Census:

This Woodruff family evolved significantly in the twenty years before the next available census. Joseph married about 1886-7, Frederick married about 1887-8, Samuel, the father, died in 1888, Lula married in 1892, Willard in 1894. The 1900 Census found them as follows:

In the 1910 Census I can locate Mattie and seven of her children as follows:

  1. EVA R.8 WOODRUFF b. at Bridgeton on 4 December 1858; d. at Millville, Cumberland County, on 20 December 1934; m. at Cumberland County on 19 September 1875 SAMUEL K. BRAUN, b. at Dreiten, Bohemia, Austria, on 10 May 1855, d. before 1920.[43] Children of Eva and Samuel:
