I am researching my father's family. We have successfully traced his family back to Jesse Wood (D.O.B. 1805?) married Rebecca?. Jesse was living in Guilford County in 1840 and 1850 with is family, the family moved to Ashe County by the 1860 census.
Recently I made a trip to High Point Public Library and found land records that indicated that Jesse might be the son of Clement Wood who married Anne Fields in Randolph County, NC. The land in question seems to be on the border of Guilford and Randolph Counties.
If anyone has additional information on this wood family, I would like to compare notes. Thank you.
