John Robert Woodruff
Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1857
Franklin County
Kentucky, USA
Death: unknown
Sangamon County
Illinois, USA

Oldest son {second born} of William Marsh and Margaret Jane Tanner Woodruff. Brother to Elizabeth[passed away in Franklin Co, Frankfort KY. at the age of 3 was the oldest sibling}, Anna, Mary Frances, William M. Jr., George T., Alice B., Josephine, and Benjamin F. Woodruff.

John Robert moved as a very young child with his parents, Grandmother Mary Petty Woodruff, Uncle Thomas Woodruff, Other uncles and aunts, from Franklin Co., Frankfort KY., to Sangamon Co Springfield Illinois.

I don't believe he ever had a picture taken.

It is said that John Robert Woodruff was found dead of snake bite, when he was about 20 years old.

I have run across some confusion about if his first name is John or Robert. I discovered that on the 1870 U.S. Federal Census He is listed as John age 13, born in KY. So I put John as the first name. I was unable to locate John Robert on the 1880 U.S. Federal Census. I will keep looking for more info. 
Note: He is listed near & with Thomas Jacob Woodruff. There is no marker for John Robert.
