About Capt. Joseph Woodford

Joseph Woodford married Rebecca Newell on 23 January 1700 at Farmington, Hartford County, Connecticut. She was daughter of Thomas Newell and Rebecca Olmstead. He wrote his will on 10 December 1701 and it was probated on 25 October 1710.

The Newell house stood facing North Meadow Lane, now Farmington Avenue. The Woodford house faced on Waterville Road. Joseph Woodford and Rebeckah Newell were next door neighbors. The marriage of Rebeckah Newell and Joseph Woodford began a line of several generations of family members who lived in the Newell-Woodford house at what came to be called Newell Corners. In 1706, Joseph and Rebeckah sold their property to Rebeckah's brother, Samuel Newell, and moved to Avon, Hartford County, and to Northfield, Massachusetts.

Joseph Woodford served as a Captain in the 15th Regiment of the Connecticut Militia.
