I'm trying to link my Robert Wood (gg grandfather) to the Sullivan County Wood's.
According to his death certificate, Robert was b.18 Aug 1846, d. 14 Nov 1914 in Great Bend, Susquehanna, PA. His parents are William Wood and Sarah Cristle (Crissell) both of Sullivan County.
He m. Maria Jennie Hughes in 1872
They had the following children:
James E b. abt 1872 in Pennsyvania
Sarah Anna b. 6 Sep 1876 in Great Bend, Susquehanna, PA
Maria Jennie b. 4 Apr 1878 in Great Bend, Susquehanna, PA
Alta May b. 12 Jan 1881 in Great Bend, Susquehanna, PA
Charles Robert b. 8 Aug 1887 in Great Bend, Susquehanna, PA
Willis Burman b. 1 Aug 1890 in Great Bend, Susquehanna, PA
I've found several census records for a Robert Wood of the correct age in Ulster and Sullivan counties but nothing conclusive and some of it conflicting with the death cert:
In 1880 in Wawarsing, Ulster, NY:
James Wood b. abt 1814 in CT
Sarah Wood b. abt 1822 in New York
Samuel Wood b. abt 1840 in NY
George Wood b. abt 1845 in NY
Robert Wood b. abt 1847 in NY
(This is interesting because Robert's first son was James E. This conflicts with the death certificate, but the death cert was filled out by Robert's daughter. Could she have the name wrong??)
1860, Fallsburg, Sullivan, NY
Isaac Dewitt b. abt 1825 in NY
Sally Dewitt b. abt 1825 in NY (could this be Sarah Wood?)
Samuel Wood b. abt 1840 in NY (same age as above)
George Wood b. abt 1845 in NY (same age as above)
Robert Wood b. abt 1848 in NY (abt same age as above)
William Wood b. abt 1853 in NY
Seems like pretty compelling info to link to the family of James Wood (did he die? leave? could his middle name have been William?)
in 1870 in Fallsburg, Sullivan, New York
Isaac Whiteman, b. abt 1803 in NY
Sarah Whiteman, b. abt 1830 in NY
William H Wood b. abt 1850 in NY (could be age is wrong?)
Robert Wood b. abt 1848 in NY (same age as above)
Then I find Robert in Great Bend, married to Maria Jennie Hughes.
If anyone has info on these families, please respond to this post or contact me directly!
