Surnames: Wood, Keen
I am looking for relations to Benjamin Franklin Wood, born in Indiana or Kentucky 3-30-1858. His Mother's name was M. F. Keen(Aunt Fannie). Mary F. Wood? moved to Missouri and married a FM Keen. Fannie was born we believe 2-9-1838 and died 2-20-1898, buried in Sparta Missouri we believe in a Masonic cemetary. Thanks in advance.
Below are some paper clippings we have found.

From the Warrensburg paper, (I don't remember the exact name of the paper and the clipping was found already clipped, so there was no date.)

Death of Mrs. Keen
Mrs. M.F. Keen of Sparta, Christian county, died at her home there yesterday. Mrs. Keen was 60 years old and leaves a husband and four children. She had been a member of the M.E. church south for many years and was at one time a resident of this city. The funeral will be held at Sparta tomorrow morning at 10 o'clock, and will be conducted by the pastor of the M.E. church South at Sparta.

From the Sparta paper, (again no name or date).

Obituary
Died Sunday night Feb. 20, 1898, at her home in Sparta Mo., Mrs. Mary F. Keen, aged 60 years and 11 days.
Mrs. Keen was born at Cleveland, Ohio, Feb. 9, 1838, and while yet a child removed with her parents to New Orleans, where she grew to womanhood. From New Orleans she went to New Albany, Indiana, from which place she came to Missouri. She was married to F.M. Keen in February 1867 and together they have lived in southwest Missouri until they were separated by Mrs. Keen's death as above stated Mrs. Keen united with the Cumberland Presbyterian church when young and has been a life-long christian, and when death called for her she said she was ready and willing to go. The funeral services were held in the Presbyterian church, conducted by Rev. W.C. McCluer, Wednesday and the remains were laid to rest in the Masonic cemetery, by a large crowd of sorrowing friends relatives. She leaves a husband and a son B.F. Woods, of Warrensburg, MO, to mourn her death. Aunt Fannie as she was familiarly known, will be sadly missed by her many friends here. She also leaves an adopted infant which she loved dearly as if it had been her own child.

CARD OF THANKS
F.M. Keen desires to extend his sincere thanks to the kind friends who so faithfully watched and cared for his wife during her late illness and death and their assistance and sympathy in her funeral services and burial.

It is very possible that Mary F Wood is the daughter of William C Wood. William was born in Kentucky 1823 and died before 1880. His wife's name was Martha J. Bell. The last census I found him in was 1870. He had a daughter Mary F. Wood born in 1854 in Missouri. (William and his wife Martha had at least 9 other children) I believe he had a brother Benjamin. I'm just putting this part of the family together and not positive about Benjamin.

I see you have had another reply which should confirm much that you have asked. Mary Francis was born in 1838 and was the daughter of jonathan Stoddard Wood. Either way all the Wood that basically came to America entered through New York. They nearly all started here as Wood even though some later allowed the s to be added.

I don't suppose you have any knowledge of the Wood family in Kentucky who moved to Missouri. I'm stuck trying to find William Charles Wood born in 1823 - who was his father born in Kentucky and any other background information. I have the forward information because they moved to Texas.

I'm stuck!

A little short for time right now but here is some info that you may check that may prove to be of help to us both. My Wood is from all over the US as Wood were the pioneer sort.


Sorry I can't be of more help right now. I am an associational missionary and the moments for a while are a little scarce.

The Wood Families of Orange County, NY

There were several Wood families in early to mid 18th Century Goshen Precinct that may or may not have been related. As far as I know, no one has yet published a genealogy of all, or most of them. This paper attempts to put down in one place what I have been able to collect, in the hopes that it will be of help to some researchers and that it will garner corrections and additions from those who know more about some of these people than I do.

Major sources for this paper are: Descendants of Edmund Wood in America, compiled by F. Douglas Halverson, typescript, 1949, (NYPL APB p.v.55): An Account of Data Gathered on the Family of Timothy Wood and Related Families in Orange County NY by Marie Ferguson, 1954 typescript in NYGBS manuscript collection; a series of four articles by Matthew Wood, “The Descendants of Timothy Wood of Long Island” in the New York Genealogical and Biographical Record, Vol 132, numbers 1-4, January through October 2001. and papers in the Elizabeth Horton and Helen Predmore collections at the Orange County Genealogical Society (OCGS) Matthew Wood has carefully examined the earlier literature and corrected many errors. Much of his work, however, concerns Woods not connected to Orange County. Elizabeth Horton was the leading Orange County genealogist in the 1950s; she interviewed and corresponded with many descendants as well as consulting primary sources and she was descended from Jonathan Wood for whom she sought unsuccessfully to find parentage. Helen Predmore was a later Orange County genealogist whose work is not as well documented but who did a better job of arranging neatly the material that she had.

These are the progenitors that I am dealing with here:

Part One: Three brothers, all sons of Jonas Wood of Jamaica

1. Daniel Smith Wood, of Warwick

2. Timothy Wood, of Goshen

3. John Wood, of Ulster Co

Part Two: Probably three brothers, ancestry unknown
4 Jonathan Wood

5 Vincent Wood

6 Israel Wood (Goshen)

Part Three. Miscellaneous
7 Israel Wood (Brookhaven)

8 Luke Wood

9. Maj. John Wood, Goshen, of the Battle of Minisink

Part One
Earlier genealogists had believed that the first Woods in Goshen, Timothy and Daniel were the sons of Timothy4 Wood of Huntington (Edmund1, Jonas2, Jonas3). Matthew Wood argues convincingly, that they descend from Timothy2 Wood (Edmund1). He was baptized in Halifax, Yorkshire, 12 July 1622, was a landholder in Hempstead, when it was founded on Long Island in 1644, then moved to Huntington about 1658, where he died in 1659/60.

Let’s pause for a moment and consider the relationship of these places on Long Island to Stamford, CT which contributed many of the earliest settlers to Goshen, among them Finch, Holly; Knapp and Seely. Stamford had been settled in 1641 by a group of puritans from Watertown/Wethersfield, CT who left because of religious differences with the majority. But by 1644 the citizens of Stamford could no longer agree with each other and a group of 23 families followed their religious leader across the Sound to Long Island. This group included four Woods: Edmund, Jeremiah, Jonas (from Halifax) and Jonas (from Oram). The Stamford group are identified first with Hempstead, which probably extended to the North Shore. A deed for the area that became Huntington was given by the Indians in 1646 but it does not seem to have been settled until 1653; the earliest records are 1657. In 1658 Huntington applied to be annexed to the New Haven Colony and the two Jonas Woods were sent to negotiate. The point of all this is that there were doubtless many connections between Huntington and Stamford, just 12 miles away across the water, and this may help to explain the substantial movement of people from this area to Goshen where they mingled and intermarried with the somewhat earlier settlers from Stamford.

So our Timothy Wood moved to Huntington about 1658, shortly after it had been settled by a group from Stamford that included his brother Jonas. Timothy was probably married to a daughter of John Strickland of Huntington and the latter was granted administration of his estate on 31 Jan 1659/60. Several years later, Strickland moved to Jamaica, Long Island, and Timothy’s children probably went with him. These children were John and Jonathan Wood, who owned adjacent land, and Jonas Wood, who owned land nearby. We are interested in Jonas and will now follow his descendants.

Jonas Wood3 (Edmund1, Timothy2)was born about 1657, probably in Hempstead, and died in 1731. He spent his entire life in Hempstead where he was a farmer, tanner, bone-setter, miller, lawyer, land speculator and activist in town church and military affairs.[2] He married by 1685; his wife, by 1700 (perhaps earlier), was Deborah Smith, sister of Daniel Smith ca 1663-1754 of Jamaica. Children:[3]

i. Jonas, baptized by 1688, living in 1726 when his father made his will, but no further record.

ii. Daughter, b by 1693, m Samuel Denton of Jamaica. They both died before1726, leaving a son Daniel who was in Goshen by 1733. His will of 7 Nov 1750 mentions his wife Sarah, dau Sarah, sons Samuel, Gilbert, Joseph, James, Jonas, John, Daniel and Thomas. Executors: sons Samuel and John, and brother-in-law Daniel Everett.

iii. Susannah

iv. Deborah

v. Daniel Smith, b ca 1700

vi. Timothy, b ca 1703

vii. John, b ca 1706. He married in Jamaica about 1730, Hannah Coe, and about 1745 moved to Little Worth in Ulster County. This location has not been identified but was probably in Hamptonburgh or Blooming Grove, which later became part of Orange County. In his 1750 will, John named his brother Timothy one of the executors.

viii. Mary, b ca 1709. Matthew Wood believes she was the wife of Nathaniel Roe (see my Roe Family) who lived on Long Ridge near Daniel Smith Wood and named a son Jonas.

The rest of this section will be devoted to the descendants of 1. Daniel Smith Wood, 2. Timothy Wood and 3. John Wood.

1 Daniel Smith Wood, b ca 1700 or 1701, d in Florida, Goshen Precinct 1774. About 1728 he m1 Mary Oldfield of Long Island, dau of Richard Oldfield and Jane Thurston, and came to Goshen about the same time. He m2 Jan 1751, Mary McDowell Thompson, widow of Captain --- Thompson, and had children by both wives. In 1737, Daniel bought, allegedly for a dollar an acre, a 200-acre farm on Long Hill from George McNish. Witnesses were Samuel Clowes, Jr. and Robert Coe. These were all families with which the Woods had been associated in Jamaica. The farm stayed in the family for over a century.

An abstract of his will follows:[4] Oct 1 1773. Daniel Wood of Florida, Precinct of Goshen, Orange Co….I leave to my son John Wood £5. I leave to my son Jonas Wood all the parsonage lots of land which I purchased also a gun which he now hath. I leave to my sons Andrew and Daniel Wood all the farm where I now live. I leave to my son Andrew six head of horned cattle also a saddle and bridle. I leave to my daughter Mary Hutron a cow and a heifer. To my daughter Elizabeth Poppino £4. To my daughter Deborah Baylie £3. I leave to my well beloved wife Mary the use of the house where I now live and four milk cows to be supported for her, and bread and meat sufficient, and a negro wench Phoeb. Also the bed and furniture belonging to it whereon we lye, and my side saddle and a cupboard and the benefit of the labor of my negro man Cuff. The rest of my movables to be sold and the money paid to my three daughters. After the death of my wife the things belonging to her and the two negroes Pheba and Cuff are to be sold and the money paid to my three daughters….Ananias Whiteman and John McCamley executors. Witnesses: Jonas Roe, Joshua Whiteman, Ruth Jayne. Proved 16 Nov 1774.

She d in 1770 and he m2 in 1775 the widow of Dr. Thomas Vandervoort of Warwick, formerly Ariante Ten Eyck of Somerville, NJ, daughter of Matthias Ten Eyck and Eleanor Tunison.[5] In the 1775 tax assessment, John Wood was an assessor for District 5 which was around Wickham’s Pond and Bellvale Valley. John was listed next to Phoebe Jennings. Arianta Vandevoort was located in District 2 which included the village of Warwick.[6] John was again made assessor for the eastern district in 1787. John Wood in Sugar Loaf. Children by Elizabeth Jennings:

Children by Mary McDowell Thompson:

16 Dr. Daniel Wood b 29 Jun 1751 in Florida, NY; d 3 Oct 1843 at Moravia, Cayuga Co, NY. In 1776 he was a physician and surgeon in Warwick, then served four weeks as a surgeon in the Rockland Co Militia. The next year he was appointed Lt. and then Captain in a Continental regiment, serving until 1779. George Washington gave him a letter acknowledging with deep appreciation the splendid care he gave to wounded and sick soldiers. After the war he moved to Montgomery Co, residing in Palatine and Canajoharie for 14 years, and then to Sempronius in Cayuga Co where he resided until 1830. After that he returned to Warwick, but receiving land on account of his war service, he returned to Cayuga Co, where he died. Daniel Wood, on 24 May 1792, married Kathrine Krause, born of German parents in the Mohawk Valley. She was married in the home of her father in Palatine, NY by a minister of the German Reformed Church. She died 3 Dec 1848 at St. Johnsville, NY.[15] Children:

Joseph T. Holmes. John Wood moved in the 1820s to Illinois where he founded Quincy, IL, naming it after John Quincy Adams whom he greatly admired. He lived there for some time in a log cabin before building what was long the finest house in Quincy, which ultimately became the home of the Historical Society. “John Wood might appropriately be called ‘the grand old man’ of Quincy … ambitious, public spirited, honorable, and intelligent, with great natural ability, and so commanded the respect of the entire community, and in public affairs is conspicuous in any history of Quincy.”[16] John Wood was elected Lt. Governor of Illinois and on the death of the governor, 18 Mar 1860, served until the inauguration of the next governor in January 1861. He also served as mayor of Quincy. He was one of the founders of the Congregational Church in Quincy and gave to the city, Woodland Cemetery where he and his two wives, his father, and children and grandchildren are buried. Children:

1 17 Andrew Wood, 1751 – Sep 1782, m in Nov 1774 Mrs. Elizabeth Wood Liester, no relation. She was born in County Longford, Ireland in 1748. In 1766 at the age of 18 she married Rev. Robert Liester, a Church of England clergyman. Shortly after the marriage he went to England to purchase books. After putting the books on ship for return, he went ashore and was never again seen although his wife and relatives searched for him a long time. Finally, through correspondence with someone in the household of the Clinton family in Little Britain, who had gone to Orange County from County Longford in 1729, Elizabeth obtained a post as governess, arriving in 1767. She was said to be “a well educated lady, an expert needlewoman. She made DeWitt Clinton’s first white linen shirt with frills.”[18] After living in this country for seven years, she married Andrew Wood, first obtaining the consent of Hudson Presbytery which declared her legally free.

At the outbreak of the Revolution, Andrew Wood became a private in Col John Hathorn’s Fourth Militia Regiment in Capt. John Sayre’s company; later in the company of his uncle, Capt Richard Bailey, and as a sergeant under Capt. Colvill Shepard. While her husband was absent with the militia, Elizabeth was left alone at her home in Florida with her small children and a colored girl. The neigborhood was terrorized by Claudius Smith, the loyalist robber who lived in the mountains nearby. He sent word to Mrs. Wood that he might come to her home any evening but he never did. Mary Armstrong, who later married Elizabeth’s son James, remembered being taken by her family to the jail at Goshen and being lifted up to see the brigand through a peep hole after he was captured.

Andrew took over his father’s farm south of Florida, but in 1782, he died, probably from wounds sustained in battle, and was buried in the Florida Presbyterian Churchyard. Elizabeth declared that she would not marry again until her children were educated and grown up. In 1806 she married, in the Warwick Reformed Church, David Lawrence, who lived across the road from their farm and whose wife, Elizabeth Poppino, (146), had died. David died in 1816 and Elizabeth brought back her widow’s third of his farm to her son, James Wood. She died in 1826.

A newspaper clipping about Mary Wood, on her 97th birthday, said that “she has always resided in the County which gave her birth, and within three miles of her father’s residence….She has mingled with young people of three generations and has enjoyed their pastimes, though protesting against many of the innovations of the modern family….Her genial spirit and wonderful cheerfulness is largely owing to the promises of God’s work stored in her memory, and to the many hymns learned at different periods of her life.”[21] Children of James and Mary:[22]

5 Vincent Wood, 20 Apr 1760 – 20 Jul 1830, m ca 1786 Elizabeth Durland, 2 Jul 1767 – 29 Sep 1835.[45] She was the daughter of Charles Durland and Jane Swartwout of Chester and the sister of Mary Durland who m Jonathan Wood (4). This has led some to believe that Jonathan of Minisink and Vincent were brothers, though I have not seen any documentary evidence to prove that. Vincent was the brother of Israel Wood (d 1811) of Warwick as indicated by Israel’s will.

The notebook of Jonathan Elmer, minister of the Florida Presbyterian Church in 1750-1757 mentions four Woods: George Wood, Israel Wood, Daniel Wood and Alexander Wood.[46] Daniel Wood would be our #1. George is a not unlikely father of Vincent since he named his first son George. But Jonathan and Israel also named sons George.

Vincent Wood was an early teacher—perhaps the first teacher—at the school in Sugar Loaf. He was a beautiful penman and a mathematician. He bought 62 acres of land from Elijah Marvin and other land from Josiah Howell.[47] He witnessed the will of Samuel Raynor in 1788, John Bradner in 1790, Nathan Marvin in 1808, and was co-executor along with Daniel Poppino of his brother Israel Wood in 1811. His own will, made 4 Sep 1829 and probated 19 Oct 1830, named five sons and eight daughters. Executors were sons George and Joseph plus Jesse Wood, Jr. Esq.[48] Children:[49]

There is a tradition, disbelieved by later genealogists, that the first Israel Wood was the son of the Earl of Warwick and he came over from England with the Duke of York.[60] In any event, Israel Wood settled in Brookhaven, L. I. He had three sons who are associated with Orange County.

I’m not sure what the connection is but there was a will (Liber 41, p 99) for Luke Wood of Cornwall, made11 Jul 1871 proved 6 Jun 1878, in which he named his wife Elen, son Eli Wood, and son-in-law William C. Edwards as executors; and named childred Eli, George, Ira, and Townsend Drew, and dau Mary, wife of William C. Edwards.

9. Major John Wood. I haven’t seen that anybody has figured out the ancestry of this John Wood, whose fame rests on his survival of the Battle of Minisink. His story has been told many times, here in an interview with his son, Solomon C Wood.[76] “The first I knew of my father’s early life he was a bound out boy to Nathaniel Roe, in the neighborhood of Chester, a blacksmith, who agreed to send him to school. He was kept in school two or three days then given a whipping. All the education he received afterwards was what he picked up….He became a large land owner and possessed about two thousand acres at his death. He owned two farms in Orange County, three sections of land in the western part of the state consisting of 640 acres in the town of Sterling, six or seven miles from the city of Oswego. On one of his Orange County farms he had a sawmill and gristmill; the other was the homestead in the old town of Minisink which I inherited, on which was 50 acres of timber.

“My father was twice married. By his first wife he had three boys and one girl, namely William, John, Robert and daughter, Hannah. She used to go by the name Nauchie. She married Benjamin Sawyer. They lived at Carpenter’s Point (now a part of Port Jervis) and from there removed to the town of Goshen in the Drowned Lands, four miles out of Goshen village…..

“At the battle of Minisink with the Indians under Brant my father was captain of a company….When the militia got out of ammunition they were forced to retreat. When they reached the river my father was so thirsty and weak when he drank the water he fell from his weakness…..When he recovered sufficiently to stand Brant himself discovered him….An Indian made a thrust at him with a spear which he fended with his arm and the spear glanced off and struck his head, cutting it open. The Indian was about to make another thrust when father raised his hands imploringly which Brant mistook for a Masonic sign of distress. Brant caught the spear with one hand and took his other hand and gave him the grip, and that confirmed the chieftain that they were about to murder a brother Mason….He was with the Indians 48 days on the tramp [to Canada] almost starved to death and reduced to a skeleton….He was then put in prison in a dark hole underground….Father was in that dungeon nine months and held a prisoner four years and nine months. The British kept him some time after peace was declared owing to the influence of Brant….I understand that when he was discharged he hired a vessel as far as he could go homeward by water and brought several children with him, one of whom, William Downley, he taught the blacksmith’s trade.

“During his absence my father’s wife remarried, supposing him dead. After the death of his wife he married Hannah Carpenter, a sister of Benjamin and Solomon Carpenter. I was named for Solomon Carpenter who was my uncle. Hannah Carpenter’s brothers were Michael, William, Benjamin at Carpenter’s Point, and Solomon and James of Goshen. I was the only child by that marriage and was born at Goshen the 19th of August, 1794. I am the offspring of old parents, my father having had several grandchildren before I was born. I think I was about 14 years old when my father died. He was buried in the old burying grounds on the hills at Goshen [Slate Hill Cemetery].

Most accounts believe that John Wood m Hannah Elliott, they had four children, and while he was in Canada she m Reuben Hopkins by whom she had several more children.[77] However Elmire Conklin, in OCGS Quarterly Vol 33, No 2, p 19, has argued convincingly that his first wife was -- Thompson, probably the daughter of Major William Thompson and Ann Moore. She cites letters from Solomon C Wood to Lyman Draper stating that "Major Wood for his first wife married a Miss Thompson" and that shortly after he returned she died on Long Island. He m2 Hannah Carpenter, by whom he had only one son. John Wood wrote his will 20 Aug 1797, naming all his children; it was proved 18 Aug 1810.[78] Children by -- Thompson::

91 John Wood, bap 16 Jul 1775

92 Robert Wood, bap 17 Aug 1777, will made 18 Feb 1811, proved 7 Oct 1811.[79]

93 William Wood, had sons Robert and Daniel.

94 Hannah Wood, d 25 Sep 1830 at age 59 of palsy, m at Goshen Presbyterian Church, 7 Jun 1789, Benjamin Sawyer, b 1774. Her father didn’t leave her much since she opposed his second marriage. They were registered as members of the Goshen Presbyterian Church 6 May 1816. Their children, baptized 30 Jul 1816 were: Moses, Elizabeth, Benjamin Franklin, Harriet, and Robert Wood.[80]

Child by Hannah Carpenter:

95 Solomon Carpenter Wood. 19 Aug 1794 – 4 Jan 1885 in Bangor, WI, After both his parents died, Solomon went to live with his uncle and guardian James Carpenter. At the age of 18 he enlisted in the army and served in Staten Island during the latter part of the War of 1812 but did not participate in any battles. Upon attaining his majority, he Inherited $30,000 made up of two farms and personal property in Goshen. On 3 Apr 1823 in Goshen, he married Susan McCoy, dau of William McCoy. They lived for two years on his Goshen farm, then moved to his other farm on Big Island where he farmed and had a brick yard and saw mill giving employment to a large number of men. Susan died 1 Apr 1840, age 35, after bearing nine children. In 1861 he moved to Wisconsin where he lived with his daughter, Mrs. William Sawyer.[81] Children (not in order):

[5] Ferguson, op cit, p4, quoting Rev. James W. Wood’s history discusses both marriages. The will of Richard Jennings of Goshen, 26 Jan 1760 (in Fernow’s Calendar of Wills, p 213) names as executors his wife, son-in-law John Wood, and John Carpenter. The will of Matthias Ten Eick of Bridgewater, Somerset Co, NJ (Calendar of NJ Wills, 6:389) mentions Ariante and her children. See also will of John Wood, Liber A, p 253 and in Early Orange Co Wills, OCGS, part 2, p 21, where he names his wife Oriant and children. A post-em on WorldConnect’s “Ten Eyck Families and Their Connections” notes that Thomas Vandervoort was the son of John Vandervoort and Antje Ten Eyck. Another son, John, m Christian Bradner, dau of Colville Bradner Jr.

[8] Liber A, p 234, John Wood, Jr. of Warwick. If his widow Phebe marries, all to be sold to support his children in their minority and any residue to be divided equally among his four sons: Jonas, John, William and George. He also gave Jonas a mare colt that he purchased from Robert Armstrong Esq., and a calf and sheep. Executors: Robert Armstrong, Esq. and Jeffrey Wisner; witnesses William Armstrong, Samuel Johnson and David Bailys. These were all people who lived up toward Florida and are mentioned in my other Warwick genealogies. A note from Helen Predmore says Phebe m2 Adonijah Middaugh.

[9] Tombstone behind the barn per letter of Kurt Seligman of Sugar Loaf to Elizabeth Horton, 17 Jul 1952. Seligman gives dates of 1779 –1863 for Jesse Wood and 1782 – 1821 for Abner Wood. The latter does not agree with the date I have cited for him.

[10] Ruttenber, p 575.

[11] Info on Jesse and his descendants from RootsWeb World Connect, Quackenbush Family.Elizabeth Bigger’s tombstone, per the Seligman letter above, lists her as wife of Jesse G. Wood; there was also a tombstone for John Bigger, 1778 –1849, her father perhaps.

[12] Information on this line is from Jeff House (JeffHouse@aol.com) who can continue the line down to the present day.

[15] This account is from both Halverson and Ferguson. Mrs. Ferguson says that Daniel married a second time to a Catherine, surname unknown and that his son John was brought up in the home of his cousin James Wood in Warwick. A letter to Mrs. Horton from a descendant, Thomas F. Dunn, Jr., 8 Apr 1948, based on his research at the Newberry Library, says Katherine died in 1803 when her son John was only 5 and legend has it that she never learned to speak English.

[16] Journal of Illinois State Historical Society, XVI-1 and 2, “A Little Girl’s Recollections of Quincy” by Mrs. Selby, quoted by Ferguson.

[17] Much of the above is from the letter cited from Thomas Dunn, grandson of Daniel C. Wood.

[18] This whole account in from Ferguson.

[19] From a family register reported by Ferguson, who descends from this line.

[20] See my Armstrong Family

[21] Quoted in Ferguson, op cit.

[22] This list is from Ferguson, citing Rev. James W. Wood’s family records. Halverson lists two more: Sarah Wood, 1802 – 1864, m Thaddeus Scott; and James Wood, Postmaster of Florida 1842-45, d in April 1853. The latter, at least, seems unlikely, as there already was a living James.

[23] Per Halverson. Ferguson says she m Horace Mosher of Elmira, NY.

[24] Most of the details of his life are from a lengthy obituary in the Allentown Chronicle, book shelf scrap book, Easton Public Library, PA.

[25] Widow of Andrew Wood (17). Myra K. Eichberger (myra@pocketmail.com) in a letter to me 25 May 2001, reported that old family genealogy notes said that her ancestor Eliza Totten was orphaned and taken in by grandparents named Wood.

[26] 1850 Census, OH, Richland Co, Springfield Twp, page 175. Ferguson says he was a minister in Steubenville, Jefferson Co, OH. Perhaps he went there first.

[31] This line is detailed in a biography of Richard L. Rood in Ruttenber, op cit, following p 562.

[32] His will, Liber 27, p 533 OCGS p 18), Goshen, proved 1 Nov 1770, names children Jacob, Benjamin and John, Mehitable, Mary and Bathsheba.

[35] John Littell, Genealogies of First Settlers of Passaic Valley, 1852, pp 488-9. Littell carries the genealogy down to about 1852.

[36] All of this is from notes of Elizabeth Horton. She says the second marriage is from the records of the Ridgebury Presbyterian Church, however all I find in the published book is mention of Mary Oakley becoming a member by certificate 2 Jun 1808. However, the will of Augustus Oakley, Liber D p 225, mentions Mary and three Wood children; and Administration papers for Mary Green, deceased, Adm. Liber F, p 236, named her surviving children. Mrs. Horton also had bible records for Jonathan Wood’s family, listing birthdates of the children.

[47] The above is from Helen Predmore’s notes.

[48] Vincent Wood of Warwick, Liber I, p 146, abstracted in Early Orange Co Wills, p 274

[49] Details on the children and their families are mostly from Elizabeth Horton’s notes.

[50] Thomas Jackson’s will of 12 April 1845, proved 27 Oct 1856, (Liber W, pp 1-8) mentions his wife Sarah, Thomas J. Howell and Elizabeth Conklin, and if all deceased, property to children of his brother James Jackson by his first wife. They are listed in the probate records. Elizabeth Horton reports (ca 1950) a Wood bible with the children of Vincent Wood and a Jackson bible in possession of Mrs. Oscar Bertholf of Warwick The latter stated that Sarah Wood died 16 Apr 1872, age 71-5-5 , was m 8 Feb 1816 to Thomas Jackson, b 17 Mar 1785,d 22 Sep 1856, age 71-5-5. They had no children but adopted her nephew Thomas J. Howell b 7 May 1823. He m 22 Nov 1855 Matilda C Post, b 30 Jul 1828. The bible also gives the record of Sarah Wood Jackson’s niece, Elizabeth C. Conklin, dau of Maria Wood.

[51] Liber 34, p 359, Will of George W. Wood of Chester, NY, made23 Mar 1870, proved 23 Apr 1872, mentioned wife Milla and 9 children; two sons, Thomas E and George W, Jr.named executors

[52] One of her correspondents, Arthur Dean Wood, said that he descended from an Israel Wood, b in 1750, son of Nehemiah Wood of North Castle, Westchester Co.

[53] Liber D, p 474, abstracted in Early Orange Co Wills, p 117. Executors were his brother Vincent Wood and Daniel Poppino.

[54] These children in this order with birth years are reported in the George Wood bible, in Rowlee genealogy listed below.

[55] Birth dates calculated from tombstones in Wood Family Cemetery, between Chester and Florida on state road..

[56] Willard Winfield Rowlee, Lieut. Heman Rowlee (1746-1818) and his descendants, Ithaca, NY, 1907, pp 48 and 54. This book gives all the children of George and Sally and also the birthdates of his siblings from his family bible.

[57] In Wood Family Cemetery. Guardianship papers (Liber E, pp 60-62,) issued to Susan Wood, mother and Israel, brother, 17 Jan 1847. Children from these papers and census records. Susan's parentage is from Nancy Rood [hattier@worldnet.att.net] who has been working on the Tompkins family.

[58] In 1863 NYC Directory per Elizabeth Horton. He was not found in directories after that and no death records in NYC or Goshen. Susan was supposedly buried in the Wood family cemetery but no stone was found for her or John. The 1840 Census showed John R. Wood in Goshen with wife and 4 males and 1 female.

[59] Lewis Wood’s obituary was in the Middletown Times Press of 10 Dec 1907 and listed three daughters: Ella, Mrs. Frank H. Westervelt and Fanny E, Mrs. David Jones of Jersey City and Ina, Mrs. Charles Tompkins of Chicago.

[60] See Ruttenber, op cit, p 570, who cites an obituary for his grandson, Jesse C. Wood. This includes the genealogy down to Jesse.. Elizabeth Horton cites collections of the Newburgh Historical Society for this information, which I am using here, though I have not seen the original.

[61] Alexander Wood, millright, Precinct New Windsor, Ulster Co, Liber 24, p 440, abstract in Early Orange Co Wills, part 1, p 11.

[62] For details of this family see Marie Ferguson, “A Short History of the McCamley Family” in Warwick Historical Papers, Vol 1, pp 119 –134.

[63] Liber J, p 91. Details of children are from Donna Barraclough-Little on RootsWeb WorldConnect who continues the line for further generations..

[64] According to Elizabeth Horton, Gidney, not John, m Philena Stanton.

[65] Warwick Historical Papers, pp 84-5.

[66] She also asks if he might be the Abner who m Hannah Knapp, b 1786. dau of Jabez and Hannah Holly Knapp. I think she would obviously be too young for him.

[67] Elizabeth Horton refers to Israel’s unrecorded will which was made in Goshen 26 Aug 1774 and proved 26 Jun 1792.

[68] These dates are from Donna Barraclough-Little on RootsWeb World Connect. However she confuses him with the Israel Wood who d 1812 and married Anna Randel. The children listed here are those that Barraclough-Little attributes to Benjamin.

[69] Info from Elizabeth Horton. Birth dates calculated from tombstones.

[70] Birth dates calculated from tombstones in Warwick Cemetery.

[71] Info on this family is from Elizabeth Horton and her correspondence with Arthur Warner, a descendant who had pages from a family bible.

[72] Liber G, p 57, made 5 Nov 1822, proved 19 Nov 1822, abstract in Early Orange Co Wills, p 201 There are several genealogies of the Benedict family on RootsWebWorldConnect that bring this line down to the 20th century .

[73] From a family bible register according to Lois Wood Griesenauer, 409 Imperial Drive, O”Fallon MO 63366, a descendant who is researching this line. In a letter to me 30 Mar 1998 she said he lived for a time in a home in Newtown which belonged to Timothy and Judith Wood and she cited Matthew Wood’s belief that Luke was a son of Benjamin Wood and Catherine Covert of Long Island and apparently a descendant of Edmund Wood.

[74] Info from Lois Wood Griesenauer

[75] For a detailed genealogy of the Barton family see: George E McCracken, “Roger Barton of Westchester Co, NY” in NEHGR, Jan and Jul 1953.

[76] The Independent Republican, Goshen, 26 Jul 1922, an article by W. H. Nearpass reporting an interview with S. C. Wood, age 90, in 1883.

[77] Her maiden name is found in baptisms of two children of Reuben Hopkins and Hannah Elliott on pp 107 and 117 of Coleman’s The Early Records of the First Presbyterian Church at Goshen, NY from 1767 to 1785, 1934, reprinted by OCGS. The will of Joseph Elliott of Montgomery, made 1 Jan 1798 (Liber B, p 31, p 36 in Early Orange Co Wills), names Reuben Hopkins as executor, suggesting that Joseph might have been Hannah’s father.

[78] Liber D, p 309, p 105 in Early Orange Co Wills.

[79] Liber D, p 454, p 116 in Early Orange Co Wills. He named his brothers and sisters and two sons of brother William; He presumably was unmarried.

Classification: Query
Surnames: Frazee Case
Thanks for the lead. I'll take a look and see if I run across anything you can use as as well while I'm digging around and will let you know. None of these names ring a bell. We have Zumwalt, Bell, Ridenhour, Sutton, Jennings McCracken Smith, Jones in our tree.

I do show an unnamed Miss Case married to an Aaron Frazee II who was born around 1812. I believe they were located in Pennsylvania. I didn't follow the line down because they weren't directly related. Just in case you are interested.
