     John WOODSON was born circa 1657/58 at Curles, Henrico County, Virginia. He was the son of Robert WOODSON and Elizabeth FERRIS. John WOODSON died circa 1715/16.
     John WOODSON This is the "Cousin" (nephew) John Woodson mentioned by his uncle, John Woodson, in his will dated August 20, 1684. He was born, probably about 1658, at Curles in Henrico county, was a merchant by occupation and married Judith Tarleton, daughter of Stephen Tarleton of New Kent county. There is a looking-glass which formerly belonged to Charles Van Der Veer Woodson of Prince Edward county, which bears this inscription: "This glass belonged to Stephen Tarleton who was my great-grandfather, and died in the year 1687. I have had the present frame put on it this 14th of December, 1794. Signed, Charles Woodson." 1

"In 1712 Judith Tarleton Woodson relinquished her dower right in land deeded by her husband John Woodson, merchant of the parish and county of Henrico. He made his will in 1715 and was dead in 1716." (Wm. and Mary Qtly.) 1

"Burke gives but one family of Tarletons in England; to which belonged Sir Banister Tarleton, the British Ranger during the revolution. They were seated at Lintwardine, County Hereford, and bore for arms, gules, a chevron; erminos between three cinquifoils, or: Crest; on a wreath between two ostrich feathers, arg, a mural crown, thereon a leopard's head. Motto: Post Nublia Phoebus. There is no doubt that it was into this family that Sir Tholllas Fleming married before emigrating to Virginia. (Americans of Gentle Birth, V. 1. p. 360.). 1 He was Merchant Of The Parish And County.
