Does anyone have a complete list of the children and their mothers, of William Perry Wood (1822-bet 1910-1920)? I would like their b/d deaths and spouses if possible.

Would William have been born around Feb. 1823? This William died April 1850. If this is your guy I have the Pedigree of him that goes back to the mid 1600's. Just let me know.

The first part is right--he was born ca 1822. According to census records, I have his death as sometime between 1900-1910.

Thank you but this list doesn't line up with the 1860, 1870 or 1880 census listings I have for this family. What are your sources?

Re: William Perry Wood's children

This is what I have on William's children:
Mary Wood, b. about 1838
Margaret Wood, b. about 1843
W. Stringfield Wood, b. January 1845
William Henry Taylor Wood, b. about 1847
George Washington W. Wood, b. December 1848
John Asbury Wood, b. about 1851
Isabella Artie Ingabo Wood, b. about 1853
Mont Goldman Wood, b. about 1855
P. D. Wood, b. about 1857
Zebulon Baird Vance Wood, b. August 1859
William Perry Wood, Jr., b. about 1861
Javan W. Davis Wood, b. about 1866

The mother of those children was always listed as "Jane" in the census for 1850, 1860 and 1870.

In the 1880 census, William is married to Emily and has:
Posey C. Wood, b. about 1879 in GA
Italy A. Wood, b. May 1880 in GA

In the 1900 census, William is married to Emaralis Mathis and has:
Pauline Wood, b. August 1896
Lillie Wood, b. January 1899

Javan W. Davis Wood is also shown as Govan. He married Jemima Selina Hooper on September 16, 1883, and they had Ethel Jemima Wood on December 15, 1888. However, I assume they divorced because she later married someone else. In 1880 Javan/Govan was living with his father and the new wife, Emily.

Does this match up with the information you have?

Dan: I have William Perry Wood married to Mary London on 28 Dec 1838 and they had one child, Mary P. born 1839. He then married Jane Barnes and they had Margaret born 1843; W. Stringfield F. Wood b. Jan 1845 married Sarah Ann Wood.; William Henry Taylor Wood b. 1847married Elisabeth O. Long; George Washington W. Wood born Dec 1848, married three times, first to Rebecca Brown;John Asbury H. Wood b. 1852 married Mary A. ______; Isabella Artie R. Wood b. 1853 (not sure if she married, had two daughters that went by Wood; Mont Golman Wood b. Sep 1854, m. Cloa Jane Brown; Parryju D. Judy Oldfield Wood, b. Dec 1856 (not sure she married, but had 5 children); Zebulon Baird Vance Wood b. Aug 1863; javan D. Wood b. 1865.

William Perry's third wife was Emma C. Mathis who he married on 12 Feb 1898. I have them with 2 children, one born before they married; Pauline J. Wood b. Aug 1896 and Lillie Wood b. 1899.

This family had all sorts of names according to my Father. He said all of them had 5 given names and when I was a child, he could quote their names.

Thank you Naomi. But it appears that he might have had a 4th wife? I find no William Wood/s in Jackson co., NC in the 1880 census--but in Rabun co., GA there is a William P. Wood, with wife Emily, son Govan W.P. (19) son Posey, 1, and daughter Italy, 4 mos. Is this the same family? If not, where is he in 1880?

Re: William Perry Wood's children

Yes, it does look like he had a fourth wife. Which would be the Emily in 1880 census. I checked the marriage records of Rabun Co., GA and W. J. Wood married Emily Page on 26 Jul 1877, by John Coffee, minister of the gospel. This is the right bride name and the ages of the two younger children would fit a marriage in 1877. I would say that the William P. Wood in Rabun Co., Georgia in 1880 is him. The son in 1880 was Govan W. D. Wood and Govan D. Wood married Jemima Hooper in Jackson Co., NC 16 Sep 1883. He died before 1910 and she married a Johnson and lived in Hendeson Co., NC.

I don't find Posey or Italy in 1900 census.

I will post his "notes" here, as well as Govan D. Wood's.
The 1870 census William Wood family does not match exactly the l860 W. P. & Jane Wood family.

l860 is: W. P. WOOD, 38, male
Jane WOOD, 39
P. WOOD, 21, female
M. WOOD, 16, female
W. S. WOOD, l4, male
W. H. WOOD, l3, male
G. W. W. WOOD, ll, male
J. (or T.?) A. H. WOOD, 9, male
J. (or T.?) A. R. WOOD, 7, female
M. G. WOOD, 5, male
P. D. WOOD, 3, female
Z. B. V. WOOD, l0/l2, male

1870 is: William WOOD, 46
Jane WOOD, 50
Ibby WOOD, 16, female
Asbury WOOD, l7
Coleman WOOD, 12
Parryju(?) WOOD, 9, female
Goldman WOOD, 8, male
Z. B. V. WOOD, 6, male
Javan D., WOOD, 4, male
Taylor WOOD, 22, farm laborer
Elizabeth WOOD, l8, keeping house (evidently, Elizabeth is the
wife of Taylor Wood. Is Taylor their son?)

These have to be the same family that was listed above in the l860 census. This is obviously the family Daddy always talked about where each child had up to 7 names. He would call them for us, but the only one I remember was "Sweet Mary Modena Elizabeth Ann Wood." Stringfield also had a long one, but I don't remember it. The ages are off in l870, but the Z. B. V. Wood, age l0/l2 in l860 and age 6 in l870 has to be same person.

The booklet that I got from Earl Wood has William Pery Wood married to Mary London first, Jane Barnes second and Emaralis Mathis third. According to his birth year and the marriage year to Mary London, he would have been only 16 when he married her. It also said he was married 5 times. It lists his family like this: (The last two on the list are by the third wife.)

Mary P. Wood, b. 1839
Martha Jane Wood, b. 1841
W. Stringfield Wood, b. Jan 1845, md. Sarah (Sallie) Jane Wood
William Henry Taylor Wood, b. 1848, md. Elizabeth Long
George Washington Wood, b. 1849
John Asbury Wood, md. Mary A. ______
Isabella Artie Ingabo Wood, b. 1855
Judy Oldfield Wood
Mont Goldman Wood, b. 1859, m. Jane Brown
Zebulon Baird Vance Wood, b. 1860, m. Sarah Long
Marion D. Wood
William Perry Wood, Jr.
Golman Wood (He is obviously the Mont Goldman above. ng)
Javan D. Wood
Polly Y. Wood
Lillie Wood


Do I have the right marriage for Jemima? The Jackson Co., NC records
have Jemima Hooper (21) m. Govan Woods(21) (b. 1862) 16 Sep 1883.
Jack William Hooper was the bondsman. Wendell Hooper has Jemima born
2 Apr 1833. Since Andrew & Margaret were not married until 14 Oct
1837, Wendell's Jemima must not be their daughter.

In the 1880 census, Jemima Hooper, age 25, was "sister-in-law" and
living with John & Laura E. Wike.

Wendell has Jemima S. Hooper married a second time to ??? Johnson. So
does the Patti Poitinger papers.

I did find a Jemima Johnson in 1910 census in Henderson Co., NC, with a dau, Ethel, the right age.

1910 Henderson Co., NC - Flat Rock - 303/300

JOHNSON, Jamima, widow, m. 3 yrs, 1 child, 1 living,b. NC, both parents b. NC
WOOD, Ehtel, dau, 21, Single, b. NC, both parents b. NC

1920 Henderson Co., NC - Hendersonville - 67/69

GLOVER, Jeff, 30
GLOVER, Ethel, wife, 31, b. NC
GLOVER, Geraldine, dua, 6, b. NC
GLOVER, Maxaine, dau, 4, b. NC
GLOVER, J. Davis, son, 2, b. NC
JOHNSON, Jemima, mother-in-law, 63, widow, b. NC, both parents b. NC

1930 Henderson Co., NC - Hendersonville - 53/54

JOHNSON, Jemima S., 75, widow, married at age 25, b. NC, both parents b. NC
GLOVER, Jefferson D., 39, married at age 20
GLOVER, Ethel, wife, 40, married at age 20, b. NC
(5 children)

Where did I get a child, Jim Glover Wood, for her?
