I came across a reference, and can't remember where, that some Wood graves were moved to make way for the Greenville-Spartanburg airport (in S.C.). I'm trying to locate the graves of Benjamin Wood and Alsey Abigal Duncan Wood, my 4th great-grandparents. Does anyone know if their graves were moved to the Wood's Chapel cemetery? When I looked at the tombstone transcriptions in the Wood's Chapel cemetery (online) I noticed there were a lot of unmarked graves. Also, I'm trying to find out anything I can about Benjamin's service in the Revolutionary War. Benjamin was the brother of the Rev. Henry Wood, who founded Wood's Chapel, and was also in the Rev. War.

The only information I have about Benjamin Wood's rev. war experience is from the book on the Wood family, Our Time in History, by James Paget. It's stated in the book that Benjamin Wood served as a private in the 1st Company of the South Carolina Continental Troops. My e-mail is: croberts47@sc.rr.com
Rhita,I would like to hear from you if you have any further information.

Rhita,
I have seen two references to Benjamin Wood's Revolutionary War pension application but when I sent off a request form to National Archives, I got the response that one could not be located. Have you seen a copy of his pension application anywhere in your research? If so, could you point me in the right direction? I do have a copy of his service record, but I would dearly love (and will glady pay) to get a copy of the pension application.

The DAR Index shows he didn't receive a pension--at least from the gov. Maybe he received one from the state he served in.
He may have applied to the government but was refused. I have a copy (from National Archives) of an application that was refused (different man) but it doesn't give much info--his age, when & where he applied and the refusal--he wasn't in the Continental Line of the Army. He was in the Militia. You can contact the DAR http://www.dar.org/ and obtain a copy of a woman's approved application who submitted him as her Patriot for membership. I will send you via my other email some instructions for when you get to the site. Also in some large libraries there are DAR Lineage books that list the members and their connection to the Patriot. Ancestry.com has DAR Lineage info--if you are a subscriber.

Benjamin Wood is also my fourth great grandfather. His son, William Jackson Wood, was my third great grandfather. Was anyone able to get any information about his serving in the American Revolution, is he listed with a DAR, and if he is buried at Wood's Chapel Cemetery in Greer, SC? Any information you may have on this side of the Wood family would be very appreciated.

Are you sure about the birth date? The revolutionary war ended in 1783

I am looking for info on a Benjamin Wood (1760 in Granville, NC-8 Dec 1838 in Spartanburg Co., NC); he is the two son of Penuel and Constance Wood; married in 1788 Asley Abigail Duncan; he is already identified as a patriot with the DAR as a private with the first Company of SC Continental Troops.
