THE WOODSON FAMILY PAGE

When I was a young child, my great grandmother, Ellen Woodson, was still alive. She was lovely.  Her hair was as white as snow.  Ellen Woodson had an ample lap, The best place for a young great granddaughter to ask question.  In June of 1959, Ellen Woodson came to CONNECTICUT on a Greyhound bus, all the way from Calgary, Canada, to visit me .  Ellen convinced the bus drive to drop her off directly to my house so she would not have to wait at the bus station for someone to pick her up. She was almost eighty years old.  A great big bus drove right up to my house and out came "ATCHEE."  Which is what the entire family called Ellen. 

"ATCHEE" was born in Marshall, Missouri, on October 19, 1881 to David Meade Woodson and Nannie Adams.  Shortly after she moved to Frankfort, Kentucky, where her father became city assessor engineer for several terms.  David Meade Woodson's father,  Richard Kidder Woodson, was deputy United States assessor for Jessamine County in Kentucky.   Richard Kidder Woodson's father was Samuel Hughes Woodson, United States Senator from Kentucky 

The Woodson line continues back through United States history back to John Woodson, MD,who was an original settler of and surgeon to the Jamestown, Virginia colony..   The Woodsons, an original American family are kin to peole like DOLLY MADISON, Thomas Jefferson, and Jesse Woodson James.  Ellen Woodson could trace her lineage back to Dr. John Woodson and before, to European Royalty. 

I ASKED MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER WHO HER DADDY WAS. 

SHE REPLIED:

"JUDY, MY DADDY WAS

A KENTUCKY BLUE BLOOD"
