8B. Patrick Woods born 18 June 1820 in Howard County, Missouri, died 27 February 1904 in Hardy County, Montana, married 4 October 1841 in Howard County, Missouri to Elizabeth Terrill born in 1824, died in 1859 in St. Joseph, Missouri. in 1816 with family and friends, (the Woods family) moved from Kentucky to Missouri. There they built a fort to protect their families from the Indians and settled down to civilize this virgin land. The Woods family prospered in Missouri. They had extensive land holdings dealing in small grains, garden produce and fruit orchards. In approximately 1862, the wife and mother, Eliza Woods, died and in 1864 when it became apparent that the Civil War was imminent, rather than take sides, Patrick Woods moved with his family of nine children to Montana.
Cornelia had married Harry Neafus and Laura had married Thomas Thorp just before they left for Montana and the two sons-in-law also accompanied them. While on the trip, the two married daughters cared for the smaller children and a former slave, a negro woman, was the cook. They left St. Joseph, Missouri, the early part of May, 1864, for Virginia City, Territory of Idaho. When they reached their destination in September, 1864, Virginia City was in the Territory of Montana. The United States Congress had formed the new territory while they were enroute.
The wagon train in which they traveled consisted of four units, each unit having twenty-five wagons. The wagons were waterproofed and the gears fastened so they would float. They were pulled by oxen.
While they were in the Black Hills, Patrick Woods and his son, Victor, got mountain fever and Victor died. A boy belonging to another family on the wagon train was herding horses and was killed by the Indians. Many times their horses and catttle were stampeded by the Indians but they were never attacked. They had plenty of provisions and weren't bothered too much as this was a large train. After reaching Virginia City, they stayed there until the spring of 1865. Then they scattered to different places.
The William Bullard family and the Woods family moved to Helena as the two men were partners. Sometime during the winter of 1865, William Bullard was killed and Mrs. Bullard and son,
Bill moved into the Woods home. Later Mrs. Bullard and Patrick Woods were married.
