Hi WOOD researchers,

I've been trying to link my Wood loose end -- Joshua WOOD to a family
for some time. He was born c.1785 in VA (age 55 in 1850 Census, 65
in 1860 Census) and died in Barbour County WV in 1865. He married
Jane STEPHENSON d/o James and Rachel (DAVIS) Stephenson in Pendleton
Co. VA in 1810. There were four children: James, Hester, Joshua and
Cyntha.

Could he be part of this family? His son Joshua Wood jr. named his
first daughter Theresa (1848-1894) which seems to be an uncommon name
and I wonder whether it might point to some relationship with these
Woods?

I will look for the Cartmell reference mentioned by Mike Foreman, but
if you have the information for the generation preceeding Joseph
Wood could you post it to me?

I would really be happy with any help on this Wood family of mine,
and will share what I have on the families of Joshua and his
children.

Thanks,

Margaret Lew
