Charles and Susan are also my third great-grandparents.
William's wife's name is a mystery to me. he had three children: a son named Martin and two daughters: Susan and Cynthia. Martin died in 1841 and his wife was named Elizabeth. There were a series of court causes, with Martin on one side and Cynthia and Susan and their husbands (Charles Woods and Philip E. Davis) on the other. These cases pertained to Martin's taking advantage of their father, who was (for lack of a better term here) senile.
Regarding Charles's rank in the War of 1812. I found a military land bounty on the GLO-BLM website that states he was a Corporal. I, too, wondered about his being a General, and I found no proof of that. There was a General Charles Woods, but he was from Ohio and this was in the Civil War.
