I have many of the same names in my Wood/Heath files.
From the Isaac Wood Biblel:
This is an exact copy from the Isaac Wood Bible:

Isaac Wood was born December 26th, 1729
His wife Rachel Ramah was born March 1st 1774. *1
James their son was born 1763 July 29th.
Elizabeth was born 1765 November 14th.
Susanna was born 1767 March the 20th.
John was born 1770 May the 27th.
Daniel was born February 22, 1773.
Ann was born October 1st. 1775.
Joel August the 24th. 1778.
William June 1st. 1781.
Isaac June 9th. 1784.
Jacob the youngest August the 1st. 1787.

Isaac was born in England and died April 21st. 1803. Rachel Ramah or Ramey as it soon was spelled in America, was born in France. The Rameys were Huguenots and settled in what is now Warren County near Front Royal.
In the hopes that this may be helpful to some who read these old records, I am going to include the marriage records of the children of Isaac:
James, born July 29th. Married Elizabeth Gillespe.
Elizabeth, b. July 14th., 1765 m. Thomas Gillespe.
Susanna m. Leonard Miller.
John m.(1) Elizabeth Harper in Pendleton County.
(2)Mary Hornbeck in Randolph County.
Daniel m. (1) N. Carr. (2) Sarah Ramey.
Ann m. Michael Miller in 1797.
Joel m. Ann Miller 1797.
William m. Mary Conn.
Jacob m. Rachel Ramey. *2

Isaac Wood lived in Rockingham County before the Revolution. After that he was in Pendleton County, or he may always have lived in that part ofRockingham which became part of Pendleton. Some of his children were on Brushy Run in 1790. Isaac has a short Revolutionary service.

*1 This date appears to be a typo. Should be 1744.

*2 Jacob WOOD m. Rachel RAMY 25 Oct 1808 in Clark County, KY

I do hope this helps you

Sorry I can't help you. I have Wood family in Mo. but don't recognize any of the names on your list. Maybe you could help me though. My grandmother, Maude Blanche Hancock's mother, was Lucina(Lucinda) Poindexter from TN, father's name John C. Poindexter. I'm trying to find her maternal family, and have no first names. Only the last name of Craig, from ?. Do you have any information that could help me? Thanks.
