      John Elder Robison.

      One very curious note about William and his wife, Sarah Allen. They named one of their children
      Shadrach. Where did this name come from, as it was not found in the ancestors of William Woodson's
      family, but is found in the MIMS family. Robert Woodson, brother of William, had a daughter Elizabeth
      who married Shadrack MIMS as his 2nd wife. Elizabeth was the greatgrandmother of Jesse and Frank James.
