     John WOODSON John was born about the year 1632 at Fleur de Hundred or, as it was sometimes called, Piersey's Hundred, a plantation on the south side of the James River, in what is now Prince George county, Virginia. 1

With the exception of his remarkable preservation from the Indians, during the massacre on the 18th of April, 1644, nothing is known of him until 1679 when (as stated in William and Mary College Quarterly, Vol. XI) he is enumerated among the "tithables" at Curles, a plantation on the north side of the James River, above Fleur de Hundred. 1

He was married probably about the year 1654 but the name of his wife has not been handed down to us. He died September, 1684. "On August 20, 1684, he made his will which was proved October 1, 1684. In it he mentions his wife without giving her name, and two sons, John, and Robert ' who hath labored for himself three years.' He mentions also son Robert's two children, Jane and Samuel; and brother Robert's five sons, John, Robert, Richard, Joseph and Benjamin, designating the eldest as cousin John Woodson, meaning nephew, as was the custom then."(Wm. & Mary Qtly., V. XI.) 1
