      1898 Woodworth family history has this:
      John Woodworth, b. Lebanon, CT., Jan 31, 1746, moved early in life to Dorchester, NH, where he with his brothers had bought a tract of land containing 300 acres. Mrs. George H. Woodworth, of Hebron, NH., gives the following account of him "He was a small hare-lip man, very active in the church and exemplary in life. he was the first Town Clerk of Dorchester and he held that office for many years. In 1822 he moved with his children to Ashtabula Co., O. When he was ninety years old he was visited by one of his old friends from Dorchester, whom he entertained by felling a large tree in the woods, that the friend might report to his old neighbors what a sturdy man he still was. He married Sarah Ingraham, whose family lay claim to the township of Leeds, England, worth thousands of fortunes. John d. 1840. Children --
