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.

Let me know if this genealogical tidbit has helped you with your research!

yes yes yes....This maybe the John Wooding, brother of Robert I been looking for. There are so many Robert, John Wm, Nathaniel Henry through our history. Do you have anything else on this individual and his children, one of which may have been named after John's brother Robert. He may have also a wife or companion Sukey HILL.

While in VA, John helped with land surveys and documented in Library of VA. Then he disappeared except for in his brother's will.

Checking that area now for more information...This may have been the breakthrough I been looking.
