Burke County, NC, WOOD/WOODS of the Revolutionary time period:
Henry Woods, came from Orange County, NC, just after the Rev.; he was a RevWarVet, too, and at Battle of Guilford Court House.
He married: Nancy Butler. Issue: Nancy, m. Wm King; Soloman, Isaac, Joseph, James, Henry, Jr., m. Catherine McDougal.
Henry had 50 acres on Sandy Run, living near James Ross, William WOODS, and Timothy WOODS.
Samuel WOODS....born in Albemarle, VA, ( but this citation notes there was also a Samuel WOODS, Jr. living in Rowan county who was the son of a Samuel and Ann Woors of Coldwater Creek, and this Sam was a brother of Andrew Woods--the author didn't think that the main Samuel Woods of this citation was that man, so there must have been two Samuel Woods).
Anyway, the Sam Wood (this IS listed in parentheses) of this citation lived on Muddy Creek of Burke Cty, and he served as a Captain in the militia of Charles McDowell's Burke regiment; Sam saw battle at Kings Mountain--and he played a critical role.
In 1790, he is lited with 5 boys and 5 girls on the census.....says he went to Madison Cty, KY which later became Garrad Cty, KY. There are DAR records on this family, too.....they say that Woods' wife, Margaret, died in 1800 in KY and that Woods then moved to TN with his son, John...first to Williamson Cty and then to Carroll Cty in 1820. He died in Carroll Cty, TN, 1825 and may be buried at the old Ferguson Cemetery in Livinia.
Some children were: Martha, b. 1770; Margaret, b. 1769; Samuel, b. 1776; Daniel, Mary, Jane, John, b. 1774; David, William, Oliver, b. 1783.
