    Notes 
    • (This was found on a website somewhere and pasted into my notes. I am not the author)
      It is commonly reported that Irene was the daughter of Pleasants Woodward. However, since she was born between 1792 and 1795, she would have appeared on the 1800 census as age 0 - 10. His census listing reports only one child in that age range and as his daughter Winifred Woodward was born about 1798, she would also fit that age range. Letters of Woodward descendants from the late 1800's which contain family history do not give Irene as the daughter of either Pleasants Woodward or Jordan Woodward. It is certain that Irene is the granddaughter of Cristopher Woodward and evidence exists to suggest that she is the daughter of Mary Woodward, the subject of a court case involving Nathaniel Jones in Wake County Court Minutes, March 6, 1793. She retained the sirname of her mother, Mary, youngest daughter of Christopher Woodward. The name of the child in this court case is not recorded and there are no records to prove that she is the daughter of Nathaniel Jones. It is possible that Irene is a daughter of Jordan Woodward who moved to Anson County. It is very unlikely that she is a daughter of Pleasants Woodward.

      Mary, daughter of Christopher Woodward, is often confused with Mary, daughter of Richard Woodward, who married Young Utley in Wake County 20 October 1806 with Richard Woodward as Bondsman. From a deposition dated Nov. 30, 1809 Michael Duskin, Jr., J.P. of Wake County testified: "On October 20 last, he was at the house of Richard Woodward who lives near the line of Tennessee and Kentucky, where Polly Utley, the reputed wife of Young Utley of this State and County resided at that time." Based on his testimony, both the House and Senate of North Carolina passed and act titled, "A Bill to Divorce Young Utley of the County of Wake from his wife Polly." (GASR Nov.-Dec. 1811, Box 1, folder: "SB 14 Dec.). The proceedings of this case alternately refer to her as Mary and Polly Woodward.
