3-4-6-6 Samuel Woodworth, Sr., b May 16, 1772 at Lebanon, Conn., m Lovina Babcock. He d at Otsego, Ind. in 1846. She d at Otsego, Ind. 1844. Otsego is two miles southwest of Hamilton, Ind. Both buried in North Otsego Cemetery. She b Jan. 29, 1772. Lived in Utica, N. Y.; near Tunkhannock, Pa., and Windham, Pa. 1819 near Ketchumville, N. Y. where he owned a large farm (now called the Woodworth farm) and for a time at Centre Lisle, N. Y. with his son Asahel (3-4-6-6-3). Spring 1843 went with his wife to Otsego, Steuben Co., Ind. and lived with his son Barzilliel and his daughter Sally who m Levi Gates.
Lovina’s mother’s maiden name was Janes and came from Pittsfield, Mass. She married Wm. Babcock against her parents’ wishes –(a run-away match) and her parents never forgave her. It is supposed they located in East Haddam, Conn. where Lovina was born and later m Samuel Woodworth (3-4-6-6) and located for a time at Hebron, Conn. where Samuel (3-4-6-6-2) and Asahel (3-4-6-6-3) were born. The Samuel Woodworth bible is in possession of Elizabeth Dolly, Hamilton, Steuben Co., Ind.
Lovina’s (Lovina (Babcock) Woodworth) grandchild Nancy Adelia Lobdell (3-4-6-6-3-6) writing, says:–“I do not know where grandfather and grandmother went, but I remember very well the morning they started from Centre Lisle, N. Y. Brother Niles (3-4-6-6-3-i) carried them and what goods they wished to take, in a lumber wagon to Ithaca, N. Y. where they went on a boat of some kind across Cayuga Lake, then by canal as far as it would take them on their journey. It was in the month of May and I think in 1843. I well remember what grandmother said, as father (Asahel 3-4-6-3) helped her in and tucked the blanket around her. She grasped his hand and said: `Farewell till we meet at the judgment, I have buried my five boys. I shall never see them again,’ the tears running down her cheeks and father and Niles and all of us crying too. She did not want to go I think. She died that summer.”

Cabinet maker by trade. He was very industrious, working day and long into the night at his trade as cabinet maker and undertaker.
