Mr. Woodruff was eighty-nine years of age and for sixty years had been a resident here. He came from Connecticut and settled here on what is now known as the Seneca Moore farm.

He was a republican in politics and always evinced the liveliest interest in the national affairs. Mr. Woodruff leaves five surviving children, Rev. Almon Woodruff, of eastern New York; William Woodruff, of Keene; Mrs. Hattie Wallace, of Fulton; Mrs. Althea Soule and John Woodruff, of Daysville.
