INTRODUCTION

 

Monroe, Iowa

July the 11th , A. D., 1915

I want to give a short history of the Woody generation from the time they emigrated to America. It has been about two hundred (200) years. This has been on my mind for some time, and I have gotten all the information I could by talking and writing to old people. I will speak of their customs and religious views. I am eighty-one (81) years old and I came to the conclusion that I could not wait any longer. I hope this will be continued in the future for many generations. This will give some idea of our relation from now on.

(Signed) William Hampton Woody
