The following information extracted from the Grayling, Crawford Co., MI Newspaper Avalanche. NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication:
-Mrs. Dr. WOODWORTH left on last Saturday, for an extended visit to New York, her old home, and to attend the commencement exercises at Brockton Female Institute, where Miss WOODWORTH has been attending school, and will graduate at the close of this term. (25 Jun 1885)

-Last Tuesday evening being Mrs. W. M. WOODORTH's birthday a pleasant party was held at her residence in honor of that event. (18 Feb 1886)

-Last Friday was the fifteenth anniversary of the wedding of Dr. and Mrs. WOODWORTH, but the reception arranged for was postponed until Tuesday evening, on account of the death of the late Mrs. MICHELSON. The attendance was large and the "crystal" presents were both numerous and costly, claiming the admiration of the guests as well as the recipients. The evening was passed in pleasant conversation, and in quest of partners for supper, when a collation was served that would have done credit to Delmonico, or some other chief of the cuisine, after which all depated for their homes with pleasant anticipations as to future weddings, and celebrations, whether of wood, tin, china, crystal, silver or diamond, which we hhope may all be realized. (9 Mar 1893)

-Miss Grace Louise WILLIAMS, a cousin of Dr. W. M. WOODWORTH, of this place, was married yesterday, at her home in Sodus, N. Y., to Eli R. SUTTON, Assistant Corporation Council, of Detroit. (2 Jul 1896)

-Dr. WOODWORTH has the pleasure of entertaining his son Charles, from Pueblo, Col., with his wife and three children, and his daughter, Miss Jennie, of New York. (27 Aug 1896)

-Mr. and Mrs. A. W. EVANS, of Savannah, N. Y., are visiting with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. J. ROSE, and her sisters, Mrs. EVANS and Mrs. WOODWORTH. (4 Feb 1897)

-Mrs. A. J. ROSE and her daughter, Mrs. Dr. WOODWORTH, and Mrs. D. L. WHIPPLE joined the W. R. C. Society, last Saturday. (2 Sep 1897)

-Dr. Wm. WOODWORTH returned from Marshall, Tuesday evening, where he was called to attend the funeral of his daughter-in-law. (24 Feg 1898)

-Miss Jennie WOODWORTH, of New York, is visiting her father, Dr. W. M. WOODWORTH, the first time in five years. The long seperation adds, if possible, to the pleasure of her coming. (29 Aug 1901)

-DIED - At his home in this village, Wednesday Nov. 1st Wm. M. WOODWORTH M. D., aged 76 years. The deceased was born at Pompey Hill, Onandaga Co., N. Y., in 1829, where his young life was passed until his graduation from the Acadamy at Elbridge, when he continued his studies at the University of Michigan, graduating from the medical department, with high honor, in 1853, since when his life has been devoted to his chosen profession. A close observer, and a thorough student, he has ever kept abreast with the times, and fully up to the wonderful advancement in medical and surgical science, being only satisfied to hold his position in the front rank, which he had early attained. He came to Grayling in 1882, and is therefore one of our oldest pioneers, and probably no man in the county had a wider acquaintance or was held in higher esteem: A man wonderfully sensitive, and with most tender sympathy, he has ministered to the needs of our people, regardless of self, and finding greatest joy in the relief of his suffering fellows. A thorough christian gentleman of the old school whose active life has been an elucidation of the principles he professed. He had lived his life, and blessed death, though sudden, came unfeared, and he has entered into rest. He had attended to his usual professional work on Tuesday, feeling in usual health, and made his last call in the evening, after which, with friends who called, and with his wife, the time until eleven o'clock was passed in pleasing sociality. Soon after midnight he was attacked though seeming slight, with gastritis, and a little after two raised to a sitting posture on the bed, and fell forward to the floor. Friends were called, but life was extinct when he was placed back upon the couch. Besides his wife and daughter Louise he leaves his oldest son, Charles, located at Larkspur, Col., Elmer, at Wheeling, Ell., and a daughter, Jennie, at New York, born of a former marriage, who will receive the deepest sympathy of our whole people.

"Only waiting! Peaceful old age
In the twilight sits alone.
And the voice so sweet and tender
Seems to catch an angel's tone.
Only waiting for a summons_
Hark! the Angel's silvery wings
Rustle in the holy stillness;
List! the joyous song it sings.

They are here: Oh, bliss! Oh, rapture!
See, the Savior bids thee come
On the shining, golden stairway,
Voices whisper, 'Welcome home!'
Home at last; at rest forever!
Free from every care and pain.
In the bright, eternal city,
Old age did not writ in vain." (7 Feb 1884)

-DIED -
September 28th., at the home of her daughter; in Savannah, N. Y., Mrs. Fanny ROSE, aged 70 years.
The sad news as above was received here Monday morning, and though it was known for some days that she was critically ill; yet the blow came as it always does with a crushing suddenness. Fanny DOUGLAS was born in Savannah, where she died, April 27th., 1832, and was married to Asa J. ROSE in 1851. After the war of the rebellion, through which the husband and father served with honor, while the patriotic mother cared for the little ones without a murmur, they moved west and in 1881 located in this village, where they have ever held prominent place in society and in the affections of our citizens until the death of Mr. ROSE, in 1897. Since that time Mrs. ROSE has divided her home life between the children here and those in New York. A number of years ago an accident rendered her unable to continue the full social life of the past, but the love of her many friends tendered her such kind attention as made her last years pleasant, even with the intense physical suffering at times endured. She leaves two brothers, and two sisters, and her children, F. B. ROSE, of South Butler, N. Y; Mrs. Ida EVANS, of Oakland, Cal.; Mrs. Jeannette WOODWORTH, Grayling; Mrs. Katharine EVANS, Savannah, N. Y., and Fred G. ROSE, Waynesburg, Pa.
Her body was brought home yesterday, accompanied by F. G. ROSE and Mrs. Katharine EVANS, and will be laid beside her husband in our cemetery this afternoon, the funeral services being held at 2 o'clock.
"Not dead but entered into life!
The warfare past, the victory won;
Oh friends who loved her, try to say
'Dear Father may Thy will be
She lives, she lives forever." (done,') (2 Oct 1902)

Winfield Louis EICKHOFF was born in Grove, Allegany County, N. Y., Dec. 4th., 1877. He came with his parents to Michigan, who soon after settled in Grayling, in 1892. He united with the Protestant Methodist Church when twelve years of age, and with the M. E. Church, by letter, in 1892, of which he remained a loyal faithful member. Wherever he was he identified himself with the church interest, being prominent in all church work. He loved the Sunday School, the prayer meeting, class meeting, Epworth League and the Young Men's Christian Association, and was highly esteemed on account of his pure life, his manly christian character, and his activity in all their helpful work. He was a member of the graduating class of the Grayling High School of 1897. He also graduated from the Bliss Business College of Flint, Michigan, last June. Soon after he accepted a position as instructor in the Bliss Business University, in Anderson, Indiana. He had found his chosen work and was putting his whole heart in it, and was hopeful and ambitious for the future, and was growing in the esteem of all connected with the University, when death found him, and The Lord Jesus took him to his eternal home. The saddest feature was that his father, mother, sister and brother, and the christian young lady to whom God had united him in unity of heart, could not be present to comfort him in this final struggle.
