Is "John Norwood" John Cobb Norwood? He would have been married to Mary Elizabeth Norwood and had a daughter named Johnnie Norwood?

Mary and John Norwood would be my gg-grandparents and I would love to use some info from your lineage if this is indeed the correct Norwood!

My name is Dianne Norwood Worth -- I am daughter of Burdette and Isolene Norwood. You may or may not remember me -- I remember you and your sister Donna. Johnnie and Burdette were brother and sister. I just recently started working on a family tree at I live in Mesquite, TX at present time and just decided to see what I could find online -- mostly because I am younger than most of my first cousins -- your mother Bernice and I would have been first cousins -- and I don't even remember her. I have said we need to have a reunion someday, so we can all get to know each other. My brothers are Richard and Jerry and Ronald Glenn Norwood, my sister is Nadine Norwood. I believe Nadine and Bernard are around the same age, Richard and John were about the same age; I remember Ben, Henry, George Merle, John, Ruth, Ruby and Bernard and Mary Gladys. I think Donna is about a year or 2 older than me (I just turned 60). I know Joe Shadoin (Ben's son) was about the same age as my brother Ronald Glenn. Do you have a family tree started? Is it public or private?

John Cobb Norwood and Mary Elizabeth Norwood Norwood were my grandparents. Yes, Mary Elizabeth was a Norwood and married a Norwood. Their children were Jack (real name was Ed Foster Norwood) Willie C. Norwood, and my daddy - Burdette Barnes Norwood (born 4/15/1909 and died 2/18/1989); Johnnie Susan Norwood Shadoin, Alabama Norwood McDonald, and Minnie B. Norwood Kelley. John Cobb Norwood and Mary Elizabeth Norwood are buried at Old Union Cemetery near Benson,Louisiana -- about 12 miles south of Mansfield, LA. Other members of the family buried there are Jack; Willie, Burdette and his wife Isolene, Alabama and her husband Rayburn McDonald, and their children, Eldon Ray, and Vernon. I believe Johnnie Shadoin is buried in the Benson cemetery, just a few miles away. I believe Minnie B is buried in or near Conroe, TX.

You are correct -- John Cobb Norwood was married to Mary Elizabeth Norwood - she was a Norwood and married a Norwood.
They had 6 children -- 3 boys and 3 girls. The girls were Johnnie Susan; Alabama; and Minnie B. The boys were Jack (Ed Foster was his name, but was called Jack), Willie, and Burdette (my father). Jack Norwood was married to Myrtie Kynard - they had no children; Minnie B was married to Roscoe Kelley - 3 children -- Annie Ruth, Harvey, and R B; Willie was married 2 or 3 times - had one daughter Billie Jean. Alabama was married to Raburn McDonald - had 5 kids - Vernon, Morris Troy, Eldon Ray, Joyce Fern and Willie Faye. Burdette Norwood was married to Isolene Brown - had 5 kids - Frances Nadine; Jerry Hugh, Richard Colvin, Theresa Dianne, and Ronald Glenn. Johnnie was married to A J Shadoin --her children were Henry, Ben, George Merle, John,Bernard, Mary Gladys, Bernice, Ruth and Ruby (all that I can remember).
