Albert Parish Woody sketch in History of KentuckyS2

Albert Parish Woody is one of the youngest county highway engineers in Kentucky. He took the engineering profession while still in college, and practically all his time and service for a decade have been given to railroad and other engineering service. Mr. Woody, whose home is at Mayfield, was born at Cynthiana, Kentucky, January 13, 1893. His grandfather, Albert M. Woody, was born in Belfast, Ireland, in 1828, and when a child was brought by his parents to America. The family settled at Tuscola, Illinois, where Albert M. Woody was reared and married and where for many years he conducted a mercantile establishment. Later he removed to Long Beach, California, and spent his last days at Lacombe, Alberta, Canada, where he died in 1915. Horatio A. Woody, father of Albert Parish Woody, was born at Tuscola, Illinois, in 1864, was reared in that vicinity of Illinois, and for a number of years was a traveling representative for the Cincinnati Coffin Company, covering as his territory Kentucky, Tennessee, Alabama and Arkansas. He died at Greenville, Mississippi, April 22, 1920. He was a republican in politics and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. While on a visit at Cynthiana, Kentucky, he met Miss Anna Harriet Parish, and they were married there in 1891. She is still living in Cynthiana where she was born in 1864. The only son of his parents Albert Parish Woody acquired his early education in the public schools of Cynthiana, and also attended Smith's Classical School and graduated from the Cynthiana High School. Mr. Woody completed his junior year in Kentucky State University at Lexington, leaving college in 1912. He is a member of the Sigma Nu college fraternity. In the meantime he had acquired much valuable training for two years in the engineering department of the Louisville and Nashville Railway, and from 1912 to 1914 was in the engineering department of the Virginian Railway. Following that for three years he was an engineer for the Kentucky State Road Department, and in 1917 was put on the large staff of engineers employed by the Interstate Commerce Commission in estimating the valuation of the railways. He performed this work with headquarters at St. Louis until December, 1917, when he was appointed to his present duties as county road engineer of Graves County, with an office in the courthouse. Mr. Woody is a certified member of the A. A. E., is a democrat, a member of the Presbyterian Church, and is affiliated with Mayfield Lodge No. 679, A. F. & A. M., Mayfield Chapter No. 69, R. A. M., and Mayfield Lodge No. 565 of the Elks. At Mayfield in 1917 he married Miss Mary Elizabeth Ridgway, daughter of J. W. and Blanche (Kendall) Ridgway, residents of Mayfield. Her father is a well known business man, a member of Lochridge and Ridgway Hardware Company. Mrs. Woody graduated from St. Vincent's Academy near Louisville. The only child of their marriage is Billee Annette, born June 3, 1918.
