Henry Woodcock was a Sheriff and was away from home a lot of the time. He was very strict with his wife and children. When his children by his first wife, Deborah, would see him leave home they would grab their Step Mother by the hand and go round and round they were so happy to see him leave. They loved their Step Mother and were very good to her.
Henry was a constable when he was in Arkansas, I'm not sure where. He was a circuit preacher in Arkansas and was a 3rd Degree Mason. [Matter.FTW]
My great grandmother told some stories about Henry, he was a strict disciplinarian, one time she decided to put barrel staves in the bottom of her dress so she would look like a Southern Bell and Henry caught her sitting on the stairs. Her pantaloons were showing and he told her that was indecent and gave her a whooping for it.
My great grandmother's name was Evaline Coques Woodcock but Henry liked to call her Coke. One time Henry was headed to the back yard to bury a jar of gold coins and Coque was following him and he told her to get back in the house!
It was believed that Hiram Wright who married Mary Jane Woodcock got the money because he was a soldier from the south and seemed to have an awful lot of money for a soldier in those days. Hiram is the one after Henry's death in 1867 and after the Civil War who got the supplies together and led the wagon train across the plains to New Mexico, then California, then to Oregon, and finally MT. Hope, Washington (about 30 miles south of Spokane, Washington). Hiram and Mary Jane Woodcock Wright, Evaline Coques Woodcock Frazelle, and Rosanner Ellen Woodcock Lee all went to MT Hope and all three sisters are buried in the MT. Hope Cemetery with their husbands.
The Wrights were very prominent in the community and still have descendants living there today.
Henry died of either a brain annurism or a stroke. He was down working in the mill (probably a Griss mill for grinding grains) on a River in Arkansas. He came up from the mill on the river complaining of an extremely terrible headache and died soon thereafter.
As I mentioned before, I have a pair of his cuff links and shirt stud but the interesting thing is my great aunt put a note with these items with the quotation "Grandfather John Woodcock's dress cuff links & shirt stud". That is very curious to me and I am wondering if Henry Woodcock wasn't John Henry Woodcock. A lot of people in those days went by their middle names.
She had copied all the family from the family bible around 1922 or 1923 and the listing she put down from the Bible was Henry Woodcock. Not all the names nor all the birth dates that I have agree with the information from Family Tree Maker CD's.
