Hi I just found your post. My GGGrandgather married Nancy Wallace Overby, widow of Woodson. Also mother of Elizabeth Jane and Martha Ann Overby. Woodson I think died in 1844, and Nancy married Edward George Eastham of Halifax County, VA on May 5,1846 in Halifax County, VA. They had a daughter Frances Parmer (Palmer) Eastham on Jan 16, 1847 in Halifax County, VA and they left within a year for first Tennessee........had son William Thomas born 1849, TN, followed by Charles, born 1850 OH. They moved on to Ottumwa, Wapello, IA and was one of the first families into Iowa after it become as state. However Nancy died in 1853. The daughters with Woodson are as follows: Elizabeth married John Wilson Shaver. ; Martha married Mark Williams 06 Aug 1859.
If you would email me at I will send all information I have. I don't know much about Woodson except someone who is a relative of Elizabeth's side who died years ago told me "when he died the slaves maned and cried and sang for days" no idea what plantation he was the overseer on at all
