Daniel A Woodward
The East Liverpool Tribune

The remains of Captain Daniel A. Woodward of the towboat Volunteer, who died a the city hospital early Saturday morning (Mar. 10, 1906) after a brief illness of appendicitis, were taken to Charleston, W. Va., Saturday night for burial. Capt. J. A. Woodward, a cousin of the deceased, accompanied the body.

On account of Capt. Woodward’s debilitated condition no operation was performed on him by the local physicians. He had been a riverman almost all of his life and was well known up and down the river.. He was master of the Charles Brown until lately when he resigned to take charge of the Volunteer. He was a member of the Pilot’s association and one of the most valued men in the employ of the Pittsburg & Monongahela Coal and Coke company. He is survived by a wife and four children, who reside in Charleston.
