I am looking for a John Wood b. abt 1837-1840 that was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada. He married Matilda Jane Mabee in 1865, and had several children, Lewis A, Mary M, Lois Anna, Susan Elizabeth, Edward E, Alice Maud.
The last known place for him is Kansas, or possibly Kansas City Missouri. His daughter Alice Maud was born in 1874 in a place called Plowboy, Kansas. His occupation is listed as "Paymaster of railroad construction gang" The 1881 Census of Canada shows Matilda as a widow.
I'd like to find more information about John Wood, possibly a death certificate, or place of burial.
