I'm not related to the following person/people, and have no further information about them, but I thought this may be of interest to someone:
THE WEEKLY REVIEW (Reidsville, Rockingham County, North Carolina)
April 10, 1889
-Col. John E. WOODING, a native of Halifax county, Va., but who had for at least thirty years made his home in Milton, died quietly at the home of his son, Mr. R. S. WOODING, last Friday evening at the age of seventy-nine years. Col. WOODING was a quite remarkable man, he possessed a fine intellect, had an almost perfect memory, kept well posted on all topics of current interest, was well read, and we think one of the most interesting conversationalists to whom we ever listened.
