Woodard (1888-1974).  Andrew J. Woodard owned and resided at Spring Hill about a mile east of Stafford Courthouse, but moved to Denver, Colorado in 1932 for his health.  He married Maggie Gallahan and was buried in Denver.  Many of the Woodard family lived near Aquia Creek in Stafford and the surname sometimes appears in the early records as “Woodyard.”  Some of the Woodard family were noted watermen.
