Most Wanted: Erastus WOODWARD
I am looking for Erastus WOODWARD, from Hartland, (Windsor County) Vermont. He was the brother of Gideon WOODWARD, also from Vermont. In 1850, Erastus joined his brother and both are listed as "miners" on the North Fork of the American River in the 1850 federal census. According to Gideon's "biography," both embarked on a general trading business and gold-dust exchange, "which they found very profitable." I have no other information on Erastus and wonder if he died in California or moved to another state. If anyone knows what became of him, I would love to hear from you!
