Biography

Possibly the son of Sarah Woodrow (b. 1807), Br. Richard lived with the Shakers from 1831 to February of 1853. As a Shaker, he worked as a carpenter. He was employed in the hardware business in Philadelphia, where he lived from approximately 1860-1900. On December 26, 1859, he married Elizabeth Paul (d. 10/7/1904, buried in Upper Greenwich, NJ). They had two children, Mary and Paul, born before 1870. The Shaker Museum owns several objects made by Brother Richard, including woodworking tools, worsted combs, and a shoemaker's workbench.
