Meet the family for June 23rd


Conie Pearl Wooden

Anderson and begot 10 Wooden children, with Conie being the first.  Harvey's parents are Andrew J. Wooden and Amanda Johnson.  Harvey was the youngest of 6 children with Joseph R. Wooden the oldest, 18 years apart.


John Baskerville "Jack" Bridgforth
is 115 years old today, born in 1895.  Jack is Andrew and Byran's Granduncle.  He is the older brother of Edward McPhail Bridgforth, Sr., the boys' grandfather, which is probably why Edward named one of his son's after John Baskerville Bridgforth. 


Joshua Miller Wooden

Josh is the boys' 3rd great-granduncle.  He is among the newest additions to the Wooden Tree.  He married Penelope Pope Yager and begot Robert Sanford Wooden 1845, William Hugh Wooden 1851, Feriblee Wooden 1873 and Joshua Hugh Wooden 1882.  That is one heck of a span of kids.
