A Day for Honoring Veterans

November 11th, 2010

Oscar H. Woodward, Jr., was a member of the U.S. Marine Corps during World War II. I remember how handsome he appeared in that magnificent uniform. I also remember that when he was home on furlough he would count out pennies to purchase bubble gum. The bubble gum family contests were so much fun, e.g. until my Mom used kerosene to get the gum off our faces, hair, and clothing ;-).

My cousin, Bill (son of Richard and Irish (Ford) Woodward, and my brother, Peter served in the Army during the Berlin Crisis.

My great grandfather, Daniel Russell Woodward severed in Company E of the 16th New Hampshire Regiment during the Civil War.

Newspaper Clippings

Woodward Family Reunion

Don’t you just hate it when you find newspaper clippings that contain no documentation, e.g., no date and the paper is not named. My family is notorious for clipping and snipping, but not telling. Clues for approximate dates (at least a year or range of years) sometimes can be found. The accompanying clipping describes a Woodward family reunion in Milford, N.H. I know the reunion took place after 24 May 1952 when my younger sister was born because although her name is miss-spelled (Gail not Gale) and the hosts were Robert and Kathy Smith. Kathy had been in the foster care of my grandmother and grandfather and was always very much a part of the family. I expect the reunion occurred about 1953.
