See bio info under her second husband Rufus Gorton and under her daughter Mahala Collier. She married first in NY Elijah Chadwick and had numerous children. She married second Rufus Gorton. They had one child, George Lafayette Gorton.

Louisa Wood(w)ard Chadwick Gorton is buried in Meech/Cabot cemetery in Wheatfield Twp, Ingham County, MI. She died January 19, 1861 at age 67 years, 1 month, 17 days.

Found a 20 year old family group sheet with her parents given as Joseph Woodard and Rachel Towner. It also gave a son Joseph who was born c 1813 and married Eliza. (This son/wife is suspect, however, and probably wrong.) This parental assignment is comfortable with the 1830 census in which Louisa Chadwick is next door to Joseph Woodard.

Daughter Rachel Chadwick Simons witnessed Mahala Chadwick and Henry Collier's marriage.
