Marriage of Oscar & Sara

November 6th, 2010

Oscar H. Woodward Sr., my grandfather, was the youngest of eight children born to Daniel Russell and Laura (Davis) Woodward. In 1906 when the family was residing in Franklin, New Hampshire, Oscar’s sister Grace worked at the orphanage there. One of her associates was Sara Waddell from Maitland, Nova Scotia. The evening that Grace invited Sara to dine with the family was the beginning of a grand love affair. Oscar became smitten with Sara almost immediately. Sara moved to Belmont, Massachusetts to be closer to her sisters. The couple were married in Watertown, Massachusetts, on 28 September 1907 by Rev. Charles Day of Watertown.
