He writes "If think I am more Woodworth than Collins as I was brought up by my grandfather Benjamin (3-4-6-7) of Columbia, Conn., substantially until I was ten years old, so I am acquainted with all their foibleb, fancies and their rugged honesty of principle. I am now boarding in the beautiful village of Batavia, N. Y. where I have lived since 1869, all alone-no family or relatives except second cousins luring in Victor, N. Y." He also writes: "When I was a fellow living with my grandfather Benjamin (3-4-6-7) at Columbia, Conn. there used to be Woodworth relatives living in Nova Scotia, that used to visit in Columbia, and Lucy Woodworth Hills (3-4-6-7-7) at one time when a girl went to Nova Scotia and staid a long time with them." The Woodworths went to King's Co., Nova Scotia, from Lebanon, Conn. in 1760 and settled with others upon lands vacated by the deportation of the French Echidnas who were expelled some twelve years before.
