I have seen several postings from Woodrow information seekers-I hope this helps some of you
I am a new reader of Quaker-Roots @roots web.com and started reading messages posted re Woodrow.They are part of my ancestry.
In several of your posts you asked for sites to help in your research.
LDS(Latter Day Saints) has a great FREE site at family search.org
You can get a free 14 day trial to ancestry .com
Have you tried just using your search and putting in the name and place? You can often get a number of sites from which you might get a clue
My Woodrows were Quakers in Burlington,NJ and then into Chester County,PA / you can get some good info from putting into the search Chester County PA Genealogy
Having said all that,I do think some of my info may help you get some clues although my Info on the Woodrows stops in 1750-1785 when a daughter Lydia(my ancestor married a Filson)
The first in America that I have in in 1673(But I have his parents,etc back to Scotland as far back as 1519-1548),Here goes:
Simeon Woodrow: A weaver by trade but is shown in PA records as a farmer)

He and Catherine had 7 children:
ISAAC - ( my line) born 1707 married Mary Cheevers 9/16/1726 in Concord PA.,died 1758 in West Fallowfield,Chester County,PA

Hope all this will help you and if this is part of your line and you want the line back in Scotland up to these I can e-mail you.
I am still searching for the graves of the Chester County Woodrows and since I live in Chester County,Pa,I hope to find them soon
Good luck wit your search.
