Woodhull, Alfred Alexander, a physician,
the son of Rev. George S. Woodhull, a
Presbyterian minister, was born at Cranbury,
N. J., March 25, 1810; graduated at
Princeton in 1828, and soon after began the
study of medicine. He received the degree
of M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.
After a year as a resident physician
in a hospital in Philadelphia, he began
the practice of his profession at Marietta,
Pa., removing in 1835 to Princeton, where
within a year he contracted a fever which
occasioned his death October 5, 1836. He
was a member of the Presbyterian Church.
Although but twenty-six years of age, he
had so secured the confidence of his fellows,
both as a Christian man and a skilled
physician, that his death was greatly lamented.
