Alfred Smith Woodward was born 3 May 1863 at Cascade Locks, Oregon, the third of five sons born to John and Sarah Ough. His father, John Woodward had fought in the Indian wars, the last being the Modoc war of the Klamath area of southern Oregon and northern California and had homesteaded the area of their home at Cascade Locks, Oregon. His wife Sarah was the daughter of the pioneer Ough family of the Washougal, Wash. area. She was a sister of Grace Latourelle, wife of Joseph Latourelle of pioneer fame, and also a sister of Mrs. … Dunn who lived with her husband on the high ridge east of Troutdale and northeast of the Ed Woodward place, at one time in early pioneer days.

In early boyhood Alfred lived with his uncle, Joseph Latourelle and family, his father and mother having separated, leaving the boys for the father to care for. While living with the Latourelle family he attended the Mountain school mentioned in Lydia Ostrand’s historical sketch of this pioneer era. The school house as he remembered it, was near the west line of the James Deaver farm and east and a little north of the William Croston house on what was probably Painter property at the time.

Alfred, or “Al” as he was familiarly known, grew to manhood in the Latourell Falls-Cascade Locks area and was one of the organizers of the Latourell Falls wagon road and Flume Co. and helped to build the wagon road and flume from Latourell Falls to Brower, a small sawmill town near the westerly foot of Larch Mountain. These were constructed as toll facilities but were financial failures as about the only traffic on the road was the supply and mail wagon operated by “Uncle Joe Latourell and by the early closing of the Brower and Thompson Lumber Co. which was the only source of traffic for the flume.

He was married on October 22, 1888 to Amelia Elizabeth Campbell, daughter of a pioneer family who had crossed the plains by wagon train. Their first home was on the old Knapp place about a mile west of Brower where the first child, Cecelia Mildred was born April 24, 1890. They next moved to house No. 2 in the mill town of Brower where Roy E. was born January 7, 1892. Al was working as edgerman at the Brower and Thompson mill at the time. Later he was foreman of the mill at a magnificient salary of $50 per month. William “Bill” Burkholder worked in the yard at the mill, putting the lumber down the chute into the flume which carried the lumber to the drying yard and planing mill at Latourell Falls. The capacity of the mill was about 50,000 board feet daily and Bill, with very little assistance, put the entire product down the chute into the flumes.

In the summer of 1895 Al was working for a time with Uncle Joe’s seining crew on Smith Island about opposite Rooster Rock and living at Latourell Falls. Here Alice Hilda was born May 23, 1895. In the fall the family returned to Brower where Al resumed his work at the mill until 1897 when he moved to Palmer’s mill, where Ada Gertrude was born November 11, 1897. From Palmer’s mill the family moved back to Brower and then to Maffat’s Mill where a son, John Lester, was born February 21, 1900. John lived only one month, dying on March 21, 1900.

The family moved to the old Adler farm near Corbett in 1900. Here Alfred Howard was born September 21 , 1901, Stanley on May 2, 1907, Lynn Addison on May 28, 1911 and William Forrest August 18, 1914. William lived but a few days passing away on August 21, 1914. Cecelia, who was then Mrs. Earl Williams, died during the flu epidemic on November 8, 1918 and is buried at Mountain View Cemetery on the Evans place in the same plot with John and William who had died as infants. Stanley died May 27, 1940 at Portland and his ashes occupy a vault at the Portland Mausoleum.

“Al” served as County Road Supervisor at Corbett for 20 years before his death there July 2, 1942. During this time he saw the completion of the road to the top of Larch Mountain, which had been his favorite dream for many years. Completion of this road was particularly pleasing to him as it followed very nearly the route he had chosen for it. After his death Amelia went to live with the eldest son, Roy, at South Bend, Pacific county, Washington. She passed away at a nursing home near Pe Ell, Lewis county, Washington November 26, 1946. both are buried in Douglass Cemetery near Troutdale.

Living members of the family July 1962 are: Roy E. at South Bend, Pacific county, Wash., Alice H. (Mrs. A. J. Landeen) at Portland, Ada G. (Mrs. Roy Stokes) Seattle, Wash. Alfred H. “Fred” at Waldport, Oregon and Lynn A. near Los Angeles, California.

Obituary: Alfred Howard Woodward 80, died March 31, 1982 at the Newport Community Hospital. Woody was born September 12, 1901 of his mother Amelia Elizabeth Campbell and father Alfred Smith Woodward.

He was of a pioneer family, starting with an Englishman named Richard Ough marrying Princess White Wing. They had several children, with one of their daughters Running Fawn, marrying into the Woodward family.

Woody attended Oregon Agricultural College, which is now Oregon State University. While attending school he became a very good baseball pitcher, and you will find his picture at the men’s gym in the Hall of Fame.

After leaving College he played baseball for several different clubs. It was a Sunday afternoon’s outing for him to play ball and his father to sit in the stand to watch his son.

Woody worked for the County of Multnomah at Corbett, Oregon for about ten years, leaving the area during world war two to work in the Douglas Aircraft plant in Southern California. He then took up the trade of carpentry for his life’s work, and pursued this trade until his retirement.

He arrived back in Oregon in 1952 where he soon met and married his wife Flora. For over 27 years Flora and Woody have made their life together – living most of it at Waldport.

Woody always had his flower and vegetable gardens, he definitely had a green thumb. His vegetables were always abundant and healthy and his flowers were the most beautiful on the block. He helped many people – too numerous to mention by name. He would take care of someone’s yard or garden, he would repair their cupboards, or maybe their plumbing.

Woody was a good man and all who knew him loved him very much. Survivors include his wife Flora Lee of Waldport, his brother Lynn of Elsinore, California. Two daughters: Dorothy Clark of Mulino, Oregon and Jessie Cooper of Burntwoods. Three step children Melvin Hiller of Annapolis, Maryland; Darlene Hiller of Spokane, Washington and Jerry Hiller of Corvallis, Oregon. He had numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
