Woodbridge Bodwell (1812-1897)

Woodbridge purchased the Hartford, Conn. drugstore of Lee and Butler about 1840 and sold it three years later to his brother George.

Woodbridge Bodwell, son of Augustus and Olive (Buck) Bodwell was born July 12, 1812, in Farmington, Conn., and took his
preparatory studies under Simon Hart.

After graduation from Yale Medical School, he practiced medicine and kept a drug store in Farmington until 1873 and then
spent the remainder of his life in Falmouth, Kentucky where he died January 25, 1897 in the 85th year of his age.
He joined the Methodist Chruch in Farmington soon after its organization, but in February 1843 became a member of the Congregational Church.

He married in September, 1843 Sarah Elizabeth, daughter of Timothy G. Hull, a farmer of Farmington. She died in 1886. They had a son
and two daughters, of whom two daughters were alive in 1903.
