I realize this reply is long overdue for you. Elizabeth Cordelia Wood was my Great Grandmother. I am researching Spruce M Wood and have been for years. Elizabeth's mother was Mary Manada. In the 1880 U.S. Census Mary's father was listed as Virginian and her mother Indian. As Dana has told me Spruce married Mary during the wagon train to Texas from Missouri. Dana didn't know why Nancy Parsley didn't go to Texas on the wagon train. By the way it was illegal to marry a native in Missouri so Spruce would have had to marry Mary in Oklahoma or Texas.
