Does anyone have info on this family?
Mr _____ Wood was born 17__ and died pre-1842. He married Mary "Polly" _____ (b.ca.1801-living 1889). Mrs Mary "Polly" Wood is listed in the 1850-1870 Clarke Co GA census and the 1880 Oconee Co GA census. In 1850, Benjamin McRee (age 83) of Clarke Co GA gave to Polly Wood "for natural love and affection"-six acres of land in the Wildcat District of Clarke (now Oconee) Co GA. Benjamin McRee's will and estate records do not mention Polly Wood so I do not know what her relationship was to him. Children:
1.Frances J Wood (b.ca.1820-liv 1889) md 1839 Clarke Co GA to Thomas Kines (d.pre.1850). Census: 1850-70 Clarke Co GA; 1880 Oconee Co GA.
2.Martha Ann Wood (b.ca.1822-liv 1897 Oconee Co GA) md 1841 Clarke Co GA to Jacob Burger (b.ca.1820-d.1864). Census: 1850-60 Clarke Co GA---I can't find her in the 1870 or 1880 census. Several of her children married in Greene Co GA in the 1870's.
3.William Wood (b.ca.1825-d.190_) md 1847 Clarke Co GA to Mary Loving (b.ca.1827-d.191_). Census: 1850,1900 Clarke Co GA; 1870 Oglethorpe Co GA. In 1889, Mary "Polly" Wood and Frances Kines mortgaged their 6 acres in Oconee Co to William Wood-he was to build them a house on their property for $50-to be paid at the death of Mary "Polly" Wood. In 1914, William's widow Mary Loving-Wood and her son William M Wood sold the six acres in the Wildcat District of Oconee Co GA known as the "Polly Wood tract" to C R Ward.
