Hi, Ed

Will Book #2 (1803-1814)

WOODBURN, John, Town of Alexandria, Washington Co., Pa. (p. 335)
Dated: 13 Dec 1811 Probated: 28 Jan. 1822
Exec: Sarah WOODBURN, James STEPHENSON, Joseph ALEXANDER
Wit: James MAYES, William CARRAL
Bene: Wife: Sarah; Sons: William, Robert, John, James;
Dau: Margaret
Acct #: W-13-1822

Note from me: Alexandria would have been what is now West Alexander, Washington, PA

Will Book # 1 (1776-1803)
John WOODBURN is mentioned in the will abstract of a Samuel CAHOON: "Mentions: Lawsuit of 'John WOODBURN of Charlestown' "

Will Book #4 (1823-1832)
Penina WOODBURN is mentioned as the daughter of John CONKERLING in his will, Morris Twp. WOODBURN must have been her married name because none of the other daughters mentioned do not bear CONKERLING as a surname.

Will Book # 5 (1832-1841)
In the will of John MILLIGAN of Finley Twp., 1827, a Joseph WOODBURN is mentioned:
Mentions: "Alexander NEVILL appeared for Andrew ARMSTRONG [a no-show witness]. John WOODBURN attested to John McMILLEN's handwriting."

And that's it. Hoping this assists you, even in a small way. Good luck!
