Captain John Woodman was born on 24 April 1740 at Kingston, Rockingham County, New Hampshire. He was the son of Joshua Woodman and Eunice Sawyer. Captain John Woodman was baptized on 27 April 1740 at the First Church of Kingston, Kingston, Rockingham County, New Hampshire,, by the Rev. Joseph Secomb. On 21 October 1762 at Hampstead, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, John married Sarah Page, daughter of Nehemiah Page and Mary True. Captain John Woodman and Sarah Page lived in 1764 at New Gloucester, Cumberland County, Maine, where he was a housewright and a farmer. He became a leader of a group of townsmen who objected to continued use of their tax money to support an orthodox Congregationalist minister. This was finally settled in 1790 by an act of the Massachusetts General Court. At this time, he and 72 others were incorporated into the Baptist Religious Society of New Gloucester and Gray. While not an ordained minister, John often preached in New Gloucester and near by towns. He was a veteran of the Revolutionary War. Captain John Woodman served about 1777 as on War Committees in New Gloucester, Maine. He died on Monday, 21 March 1808 at New Gloucester, Cumberland County, Maine, at age 67 years, 10 months and 26 days.
