Woodruff, Albert, traveling salesman, was born in Jackson county, West Virginia, March 4th, 1829, and remained a resident of that state until 1865, when he moved to Christian county, Illinois, where he remained six years, working at the carpentry trade. In April, 1871, he came to Clay county and located in Spencer and followed his trade for about ten years when he entered in partnership with Ackley Hubbard and engaged in the furniture business, subsequently selling out; he was in the millinery trade for two years. Since disposing of this he has devoted his time and energies to selling nursery stock for the past six years. During the late war he was a member of Co. C, 140th W. Va. Infantry, and was a member of one of the militia companies sent to Ohio at the time the confederate troops under Morgan made a raid through that State. He has been married three times. He has four children, Olivia, Mrs. C. M. Whitman; Alice G., Mrs. A. Wettstien; Lona, Mrs. H. Kunath and Homer, at present attending school at La Porte, Indiana.
