The Woodrough family has an interesting history that is a demonstration of how a lowley immigrant butcher can make it BIG by hard work.

The WOODROUGH branch of my family tree.
Why did the immigrant ancestor change the surname from WOODROFFEto WOODROUGH? Heaven only knows! It would have been much simpler had hechosen WOODRUFF because that is the way most people spell it after hearing thename for the first time.I never could understand why someone reading the surname, then calling italoud, would pronounce it WOODROW? Rough - rhymes with dough? Ahhhhh,the confusion of the English language! And I'm not sure our immigrant ancestorhad anything to do with changing the spelling of the surname. It's just one of thosethings that happened when people arrived in America.The WOODROUGH branch of our family tree continues to grow and it wasthe birth of my great-nephew that prompted me to put together this narration.When I started this project, I wasn't sure that I had enough time left to complete it,but God has blessed me abundantly and all that's left to do now - hopefully - is get itprinted and into the hands of all family members.I dedicate this "work of love" to my wonderful, patient husband who has notonly had to take care of the house and me during my illness, but has allowed me tospend time each day typing, scanning, copying, deleting, etc. And then, at the end of the day he'd sit and listen to what I wanted to do the next day, God willing! Hehadn't a clue what I was talking about, but he listened anyway - and cheered me on!To little Stephens Blakely Woodrough III - this one's for you, too!Laura Woodrough Glass-Steneck February, 2007
