In an 1880 US Census entry, the occupation of Daniel Card is listed as "Works in Woods." What does that mean?
Where I grew up, the word "woods" was a synonym for forest so I immediately thought "Works in the Forest". If that's true, what kind of work was he likely doing in the forest? Lumbering? I also see how "Works in Woods" could be another way to say "Carpenter".
The census entry is from Pennsylvania. You can see on the image that many others who lived near him had the same occupation.
