Neil Allen Woodington–A Privileged and Troubled Life

April 3, 2017

Today would have been the 90th birthday of my 2nd cousin, 1x removed, Neil Allen Woodington. We share the common ancestry of Moses Woodington and Henrietta Munson. I am a descendant of their son Furman’s branch; Neil was a descendant of Furman’s brother, George Franklin Woodington.

Neil had the privileges of education and opened doors but he was not able to hold on to those as he aged. He had three marriages and three divorces, spent time in prison in Wisconsin, and died at the relatively young age of 62.

My cousin and genealogy buddy Lori Hahn from Me. Here. Right Now., contributed an excellent article about Neil’s life and struggles. It is well-documented and an interesting read. I hope you will take time to learn about his life.
