902 will dated 27 Aug 1813 Greensville Co., VA Woodruff, William (I1725)
 
903 Will in 1862 lists wife: Judith. Adm is Nathaniel Clegg

Who was his father? This is one of the great mysteries of the genealogy of the Chatham Co. Avents. Many say his father was Joseph Avent, brother of the John Avent who founded Avent Ferry, and son of William Avent and Sarah Massie of Northampton Co., NC, but this is clearly in error, as there is documentation that the elder Joseph Avent died around 1781, 15 years before the younger Joseph's birth.

Joseph Avent (1740-1781), brother of John, and his wife Julianne (last name likely Jean/Gean) likely had 3 sons: John, William and James. It appears that James moved to SC by 1789, so the most likely candidates for father of this Joseph are John or William. William seems to be the strongest candidate - see his record for more information.
