     CHARLES WOODBURY, section 6, Porter Township, was born in Windsor County, Vt., Sept. 11, 1834, and is a son of Earl and Abigail (FROST) WOODBURY, who were also natives of that State. Earl WOODBURY was a farmer by occupation, and remained in his native State until 1849, when he came to Wisconsin and purchased 160 acres of land in Porter Township, which he improved , and on which he remained until 1862, when he sold out, and in the village of Cooksville engaged in the mercantile business, which he followed for about three years, and then lived a retired life. Politically, he was a Republican, and was a firm believer in the principles of that party. By the union of Earl Woodbury and Abigail FROST there were seven children, namely: George, who resides in California, Ellen, now the wife of Benjamin HOXIE, who resides in Evansville; Ryland, now residing in Evansville; Henry, deceased; Charles, the subject of our sketch; Mary Jane, deceased; Josephine, the wife of Hosea DOW, residing in Duluth, Minn. The father of these children passed to his final rest in June, 1880, at the age of eighty, and was interred in Waucoma Cemetery. The mother's death occurred Sept. 27, 1871, at the age of seventy-three.

Charles WOODBURY, the subject of this sketch, received a common-school education in his native State, and came with his parents to Wisconsin in 1849. He remained at home, assisting his father in the cultivation of his farm, until the age of twenty-one years, when he engaged as a clerk in a store at Cooksville, where he has since continued to reside. After a four year's clerkship he purchased a half-interest in a store at that place, where he remained for about two years. He then sold out and engaged in farming which occupation he continued until 1864, when he enlisted in Company K, 2d Wisconsin Cavalry, and served until Aug. 20, 1865, when he received his discharge and returned to Cooksville. On his return to the village he purchased a stock of general merchandise, and with the exception of about six months, he has since engaged in the mercantile business. On the 31st day of December, 1857, Mr. WOODBURY and Sarah Elizabeth BROOKS, a native of New York, were united in marriage. One daughter came to bless their union, Mabel, born March 19, 1869, yet residing at home with her parents.

Mr. WOODBURY is now doing a thriving business in the mercantile line, and carries a complete stock of merchandise. For eleven years he was Postmaster of Cooksville, and is at present Clerk of the town of Porter, an office which he has held for six terms. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and politically, he is a Republican. His first Presidential vote was cast for John C. Fremont, in 1856. He has always been an active worker in the ranks of his party, and has always been very liberal with his means for its support, and for the advancement of all public enterprises. Few men enjoy the confidence of the community in which they live in a greater degree than Charles H. WOODBURY.
