Whole Photo

Scott Hawley tells us that he is not related to this woman in any way.  The photograph was found in the collection of Scott's Great-Grand Aunt, Grace Hafford Ankrom, who identified the woman as a neighbor of the Hafford family who lived on Delaware Avenue in Columbus. Scott goes on to say, "Actually, if a descendent of any of these folks notices these pictures and wants them, they can contact me. I would just want to see how they are related for proof."

Martha Ellen Woodward was the daughter of C. A. and Margaret (_?_) Woodward, born Christmas day (December 25), 1860 at Terra Alta (?), Maryland; died February 11, 1920 in Columbus.
