died quite suddenly yesterday morning, at the home of his daughter, Mrs.

taken dangerously ill with pneumonia on Saturday last. Dr. Woodard, who

recently departed this life at the advanced age of 87 years, was born at
Canandaigua in 1795.
He was educated at the old academy of the same place, and after acquiring a preliminary education, commenced the study of law and was about to be admitted to the bar when the war of 1812 broke out Mr. Andurs being then a strong and vigorous boy and full of patriotic zeal, he was one of the first to enlist in the service.

After the war he came back to his father's home, and at the age of 23 years was married to Sally Drake.
