I am still trying to find more information on Charles B. Wood, particularly his parents. He was born around 1857, and various records have him being born in different states. The 1900 census lists his birthplace as Indiana, the 1910, 1920, 1930, and 1940 census' lists his birthplace as Illinois, and one of his son's death certificate lists him as being born in Missouri. He married Laura Alice Proctor in Wise County, Texas in 1882. They had at least four children, Willie Gayle, Mary Edna, Charley Proctor Wood, and Earline Wood.
By 1900, Charles is living in Oklahoma with a lady named Maggie and his step-children. He died around 1940 in Oklahoma.
Any information about him or his parents would be appreciated, as would any advice on how to find his parents with very limited information.
