Info from Iggy:
Alfred Eugene ""Alf"" Woodard (May 13, 1869 - Nov. 14, 1946)

"My Grandfather Alfred. E. Woodard was born 13 June 1869 in Sutton, Brome county, PQ, Canada to Carlton Sylvester and Sarah Ann Hurlbut Woodard.The family moved to Iowa after the Civil War stopping first in Jasper County and then on to Pocahontas County and then finally to Webb, Clay County.

He married my Grandmother Myrtle Mae Logan 5 February, 1902 in Fergus Falls, Minnesota. They had two children, Floyd Eugene Woodard and Orpha Leola Woodard Dann

Near the end of his life, he and my Grandmother sold their farm outside of Webb and moved to a house in Marathon, Iowa; the family story is that it was bought with my grandmother's "egg" money. As well as being an efficient farmer, my grandfather was also a skilled mechanic and blacksmith. He prided himself on his skills as a farrier and many of his neighbors came to him to have their horses shod and his small smithy on the farm. He had many tales of the pioneering days to tell as well as having a rather mischievous streak as a prankster. He also used to make up rhymes to help his children learn math. Most of this I know from my father as I was a year old when he passed."
