My Ggrandfather was JOHN MURPHY WOOD, born 1824 in Limestone
Co. Alabama which was Indian Territory at that time. His father (uk) was born in NC and mother (uk) was born in SC. I believe they were both Cherokee Early Settlers. We prrobably decend from Andrew Wood, an Indian trader who was from Virginia in 1673. John was an early Texas Ranger Capt. and foormed the Toby Christian Church in Marble Falls, Burnet Co. Texas. Any information appreciated.
