CHARLES HIRAM WOODWARD
Charles H. Woodward, born in New York, September 9, 1827, was the third son of James and Laura Read Woodward. He grew to manhood in New York, along with his older brother, James and his sister, Samantha. When he was five years old, his mother married Mr. Zelotes Powers May 12, 1832. By this union there were three children: Ambrose, Laura Jane and Hyrum Zelotes.
Mr. Woodward always spoke in the highest terms of his stepfather, Mr. Powers, and he was especially attached to his youngest sister, Laura Jane (Churchill), with whom he always kept up a correspondence until the time of her death.
Mr. Woodward, was a large man, six foot or over and well built. In his younger days he was athletic and powerful. He claimed at one time to have cradled ten acres of wheat in one day on a wager. He was a splendid carpenter and builder and a man above the average of intelligence. He was a firm believer in education and gave his children all the advantages possible for a man in his circumstances. His oldest son, James Adolphus, was especially educated that he could assist the others, which he did until they were all grown. In fact, he was head of the family for many years before his father died.
Besides being a carpenter, Mr. Woodward was a farmer and spent most of his time at that vocation during his early married life. He married Maria Annie Kronkright in New York about 1849, and to them were born eleven children. About the year 1854 the family moved to Wisconsin near the town of Sparta. Here they continued at farming until the year 1876, when they moved (upon invitation of his older brother James who was a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in that neighborhood), to Utah where he remained until the time of his death.
Mr. Woodward was, in some respects a peculiar man and he allowed his pecularities to turn him against the mother of his children so about the year 1880 he sent his family to his son, James Adolphus, who was then living at Willow Creek, Montana, and the family was never again united. He then married Mrs. May Evans, of Mount Pleasant, Utah, a widow with three children, and to them were born: Charles Clyde. His wife soon died and he married a third time, an old maid, with whom he lived until his death which occurred in Salt Lake City, Utah Feb. 6, 1907.
