Walter B Parker married Mary Jane Wood abt 1857 in, all likelihood, Bedford Co TN. The records of Bedford TN before mid 1861 have all been destroyed. This family moved first to Texas and then on to Oklahoma with most of Walter Parkers Brothers. Mary Jane Wood is the Daughter of Andrew C Wood b.abt.1794 in South Carolina. He appears on the Tax list of Bedford in 1836 and is on the Census of Bedford in 1840, 1850, 1860 and 1870. In 1850 his wife was Nancy b.1800 Georgia.
One of his other Daughters was Eliza H Wood who married Thomas B Hastings and they moved to Newport, Attala, Mississippi between 1870 and 1880 and on to Holmes, Mississippi where they spent the rest of their lives.
The other children were Sally Wood b.1828, Kinard Wood b.1831, Sarah Wood b.1833, Wallace Wood b 1834-1837, Elizabeth b.1840 and Clementine Wood b.1847. None of these children can be tracked with Certainty.
One or two researchers have claimed that Wallace Wood was the Wallace E Wood who later lived in Jefferson Co KY and died there in 1913 and who’s parents were Andrew C Wood and Nancy Weeks. However he is listed in various records as being born in Alabama and his 1865 Marriage to Mrs Fannie Holmes/McKinney says his parents were born in Kentucky. I would be most interested in finding someone who has some external information on this family other than similarity of names.
