I am a Wood descendant . I am researching my Wood roots, but for the moment I am looking to connect with my 1st cousin who I have never met. She was born, I think about 1947 or 46, to Helen and Dale (Marion) Wood near Redwood City., CA. I believe her mother's maiden name was Cutting or Downs. Her birth name was Linda Wood. When she was very young, her parents divorced and Dale moved to South America. I have a few baby pictures of her. Can anyone help me find her? Thanks!

I am trying to link Wood Families from Maryland, Virginia and North Carolina using y-DNA.  The data base on FamilyTreeDNA has grown to the point of being useful for linking paper trails. I encourage all of you to have a male Wood family member tested, and add your Information to the Wood-Woods Family Project.

I am trying to reconstruct a family line with scanty information.  My last Wood ancestor I have information on was I. Thomas Wood, born in Bunkle, Berwickshire, England in 1813, married Isabella Hall Sewell in 1849 on Charles St in Baltimore, died c. 1880.  All the family genealogy was divided and the Wood genealogy went elsewhere years ago.  All I know is that through him , we are related to Rogans, Owens and Warfields (no particular order) and ultimately to Bowies and some connection to Jim Bowie.  I have followed dozens of possibilities but nothing works out.  I would be ever so grateful if anyone recognizes a connection.  Anne

HI Tina, I would be more than happy to help you with the Wood Family. My email address is,  please email me and I will get the information on my Wood Family. If you can give me anymore information on William  Riley Wood, it would be helpful.It is very possible he is part of  my Wood Family, we have a lot of Riley in the family, as my 6th great grandmother is a Riley, so there was a lot of the males whose first or middle name was Riley.  Nancy

Nancy (Featherly Stump) - I would like to contact you about your Wood family.  I have a brickwall.  William Riley Wood's parents were supposedly killed in a fire and he was raised in an orphanage.  He was born 22 FEB 1858 in Illinois He married Ellen D. Cannady in Illinois after 1878.  I have seen his parents listed as Joseph Wood and Sallie in some trees, but no information about them.  1900 census has them in Cherokee & Walnut Townships, Payne, Oklahoma Territory  .   Tina

Still looking for ANY information on Franklin Frazier Wood who married Sarah Ann Wilson.  He spent most of his life in Gonzales, Texas.  Served in Civil War.  Is buried in Gonzales Masonic Cemetery in the large Wood plot.  He was born in either Tennessee, Georgia or Alabama in 1810.  Know he lived in LaGrange, Ga.?, Tallapoosa and Texas.  Any connection whatsoever would be greatly appreciated.  Have tried for years to find information on him.  He was my gr. gr. grandfather.  Have family bible where he gave it to his daughter-in-law Eliza Jeter Wood.  She had married his son, Wm. B. Wood who died in his mid 30's.  Am in mid 70's so need some info desperately.
