My mothers Woodard connection was Kedar(Kader) Woodard and Emma Lynch Woodard. Kedar Woodards parents were Henry Woodard who married a Sally Massey both of them from Johnston County NC and died before l904 before my mother was born to Elijah Lynch and Louisa Strickland 1904 Mother was adopted and raised by the Kedar Woodards after her mother died in child birth. Emma Lynch Woodard was sister of Elijah Lynch who died 1930 in Smithfield NC. Old folks home I think.
These Woodards and Lynchs and Masseys lived in Boonhill Township Princeton North Carolina.
I do not know of any Dickerson connection or Franklin County
NC connection to these people. I was told the Woodards came from Virginia early on to NC. Maybe they came by the way of Franklin County NC but I do not know.
Good Luck and Good Hunting! I am, Sincerely, Westa Talton Morris 10/7/2000 NNVA Mawpar@aol.com
