        In Jan 1912, he had surgery for appendicitis in Batesville AR and
        seemed to be regaining his health.

         By March 1912, however, his incision became infected and by late
        May, he passed on. His farm was sold to a man from Alabama for
        $5,000. Woodford's widow Nancy continued to farm along with
