I'm trying to find the name of the first wife of Laban WOOD as well as the date and place of death for Laban. . He is listed in the 1830, 1840 and 1850 census reports for Morgan County. In 1850, there was no wife present in the household. Laban WOOD married (2) Sarah MILLS on 17 Jul 1853.
Laban's children in his 1850 household were John, 18, Priscilla, 16, Mary, 14, Susannah, 11, Luiza, 9, Hannah, 6 and William H., 2. Priscilla m. 17 Sep 1856 Preston ELMORE while this Mary may be the Mary who married 7 Mar 1853 John ELMORE. It looks as if some of the children were "farmed out" before 1870.
Any help appreciated.
