Prof. Steven is not to be confused with Stephen Woodworth, fiction writer of novels such as "With Red Hands", "Through Violet Eyes", and "From Black Rooms".

These are the two Woodworths that seem to show up in what seems like thousands of places when one does a Google on "Woodworth".

  Woodworths of the Mohawk Nation We have a professor from the Mohawk nation, and a picture of a "Woody Woodworth" in full regalia.  The latter picture was taken in Nov 1997.  Unfortunately, the "real" name of this Woody is unknown.  He's a Mohawk Indian that was living in the San Antonio area.  Anyone know the name of this Woodworth?  Let me know.

Stephen is descended from "William, English soldier of Quebec"
  Selah Woodworth, d July 4, 1825 Only known Woodworth to meet tragedy while celebrating the 4th of July.  One wonders what happened to Selah's little girl.  She went on to marry and one of her descendants is our Jane Cooper, who is listed on the Walter Descendancy Lines page.   This 1825 clipping is from the Leader Herald newspaper of Fulton, NY.
