I am Chester Woodbury's great granddaughter. While researching this house, where my grandfather, Charles Goodrich Woodbury, grew up, I noticed a mis-entry. The name in picture caption and on historical marker are incorrect. Mr Woodbury's middle name was Downer, so information should read "Chester D. Woodbury" rather than "Chester E. Woodbury."
