Of course, Woodhull is a great name for a a sailor before the coming of iron and steel.
But, there is some confusion as to dates in his life other than his death.
Fond-A-Grave had his birth as unknown. One source had him born in 1832 and his son Maxwell Van Zandt Woodhull in 1834. Not likely. I saw a picture of him and he was fairly old when it was taken (probably about the time of the Civil War).
Fold 3 had him born April 2, 1813. The marker on the Arlington National Cemetery flagpole says he was 1832-1863. An account of his death that I read put his age at fifty.
I'd have to say he was born in 1813 and entered naval service in 1832. Death was February 19, 1863.
