The above record should read

WJ Woodford was in local govt. for about 40 years, I am told . So, it seems WW is incorrect and WJ Woodford is correct. Here's a note from my brother re a plaque he inherited , and he tells us it says WJ Woodford. Weird no one picked up typo before. I may have mentioned, the John Woodford next to him is his brother.

It is of interest to note that the next WJ Woodford after the person we are talking of , went on to become Post Master of Nfld. I actually visited his office in the old General Post Office on Water St. around 1959-60. He was named after the WJ [WW] that started this discussion.

I know, as the WJ Woodford from 1960 was my Grandfather, and the WJ Woodford from 1898 was his uncle." I have a brother , WJ Woodford in Alberta, and he has a son too. His name-you guessed it-WJ Woodford, now
