My record indicates that Michael Du Bois Woods lived to be 100
His father was Pierre Du Bois whose father was Charles Du Bois De Fiennes and on back to the year1080. The relationship takes us to Knights Templar, Baldwin I King of the Holy Land.
From Michael Du Bois Woods we travel down to Richard Woods, then Sir JohnWoods whose wife was Isabella Bruce ( and she can be traced to Robert The Bruce King of Scotland. There are several JohnWoods and then an Alexander Woods
From What I can gather between Sir John Woods and Alexander Woods your family branches off and the s is lost and changed to Wood. Sir John Woods traveled to Ireland with Cromwells Army to capture Ireland and he and his wife stayed there. The Town of Meath comes up in our records also.
Thus it appears we are related.
If you travel back to Robert the Bruce and his grandparents. His grandmother was a Le Clare and her Father and grandfather were two of the Barons who forced King John to sign the Magna Charta.
The De Finnes, DuBois, and Le Clare's all came over from France with William the Conqueror and fought at the Battle of Hastings to capture England. For that they received land from the new King.
The Le Clare's were also descendents of Charlemagne.
