> Hi, I'm new to this list. I have been researching my mat. gfather's line and can not get back more than to my gg-gfather, Jesse J Woods, b:10/8/1854, d:6/2/1916 in Goin, TN. The 'story' goes that Indians found him in the woods and named him Woods, but I'm not so sure I believe that. He was married to Nancy J Edwards, b:5/8/1850, d:6/8/1937 in Goin, TN. I doubt anyone on this list knows anything of them, but if they do, I'd love to hear from you! :-)
