I am looking for information on John Wood who married Sarah Cabell, probably in Dutchess Co. NY. FamilySearch says they wed abt 1801, but not sure about that because of conflicting birthdates for their son Talmadge (1802 vs 1813). Talmadge married Lydia Mosher (b. 1806) in 1839 in Stanford, Dutchess Co. Lydia's older sister Lois, b.1790, married my gggrandfather Levi Bunnel in 1813. Lois later married a Wood whom I believe was connected to Talmadge's family, but I cannot figure out how. Does anyone know of this Wood family? I cannot find a death date for John's wife Sarah. Perhaps my Lois later married Talmadge's father, John Wood? Hope someone can help me with this puzzle. Thanks... Jackie

I cannot help you with John Wood and Sarah Cabell. However, I think you have stumbled into my family. At that time several members of my Wood family lived for a while in Dutchess County. Jonathan Wood (b.1760) married Rachel While who was born in Dutchess County in 1764. They both died in Mt. Gilead, Ohio. Their son Israel (1797-1874) was born in Clinton County, NY and died in Mt. Gilead. Israel had several Mosher cousins who also lived in Mt. Gilead. These Woods and Moshers were Quakers and are descended from John Wood who died in Portsmouth, RI in 1654/55.

James, Thank you for your reply. I have a hunch that our families may be connected as I just learned that my John Wood was born in NY (Dutchess Co.?) same time period 1776; Sarah abt 1780, also NY. Curious to know if you have a John Wood born around that date... I think my best bet is to look at those Quaker records. I just might get lucky :-)

I saw that you have an Israel Wood b. in New York, d. in Ohio. Do you have a wife's name for him. I have been looking for my Israel Wood, b. abt 1800 in New York. He married a Julia Watkins but that's all I know about him. He and Julia had at least 2 sons, Sidney and Seth. These families lived in Galen, Wayne County, New York.

If you have any information on Israel Wood or Julia Watkins I would love to hear from you. Thanks,

Louise
