PREFACE. 



In 1880, William S. Wood of Seymore, Ind., compiled 
and published a genealogy of the brothers, Jeremiah and 
Capt. John Wood, and descendants. He gives the birth 
of Jeremiah as being in the year 1678; married 1709; 
died 1730. John, married 1705; died 1725, and tiaces 
the descendants of Capt. John Wood, from his marriage 
with the oldest daughter of Col. Joseph Buckminster of 
Framingham, Mass. ''Married, March 3, 1705, John 
Wood and Elizabeth Buckminster, both of this town," 
meaning Framingham, Mass. 

In his work the compiler gives the names of the chil- 
dren of Capt. John and Elizabeth (Buckminster) AVood, 
but publishes none of their descendants, except those of 
Joseph Wood, a younger brother of Thomas Wood. 
Thomas AVood married Mary Taylor, and they were the 
parents of the twin brothers, John and Benjamin AVood. 

I have labored persistently to find a complete record 
of their descendants, and trust this volume may meet 
with a kind reception. 

The compiler of this volume does not claim perfection. 
It would be impossible to make it complete, as a few of 
the twenty-two branches have passed out of the knowl- 
edge of the remaining families. 

He wishes to thank most sincerely all who have so 
kiudly contributed records and information. 

Portsmouth, X. H., January 1, 1902. 



EXPLANATIONS. 



The figures before the name are the number given that 
name for reference. 

The figures after the name in the record of marriage, 
refer to that person's record in the following number. 

The abbreviations are as follows : b. for born ; m. for 
married; d. for died ; res. for residence. 

The generations are numbered from Capt. John Wood, 
the grandfather of Col. John and Benjamin Wood. This 
is as far back as the line has been traced on the paternal ' 
side, but Capt. John Wood's wife, Elizabeth Buckmin- 
ster's ancestors have been traced back to England. 



WHY THIS GENEALOGY CAME TO BE 

PUBLISHED. 



"There 's a divinity that shapes our ends 
Rough-hew them how we will." 

The writer of this work has had a busy life, and while 
he was general agent of the New Hampshire Statesman 
used to write up special news, and sometimes the indus- 
tries of the towns visited, but never intended to publish a 
book of any kind, much less a genealogy. 

A few years ago he accidentally came across a volume 
•of " Descendants of the brothers Jeremiah and John 
Wood," published by William S. Wood, Seymore, Ind. 
The volume belonged to the Boston Public Library. In 
it he discovered that Capt. John Wood was a direct 
ancestor of the fourth generation back from the writer; 
that the book contained quite a full record of Jeremiah's 
descendants and but little of the descendants of Capt. 
John Wood. The writer determined to secure a volume 
of the work, wrote to tne postmaster of Seymore, Ind., 
and learned from him that its publisher had deceased. 
He then wrote to the printer, " Press of Charles Hamil- 
ton," Worcester, Mass., and learned that they had not a 
copy left. He then visited numerous book stores of 
Boston, new and old, without success. While spending 
a vacation in Hancock, N. H., he accidentally secured a 
copy of the book. While perusing the genealogy he dis-

covered thai it contained the record of Capt. John Wood's 
children and part of his son Thomas Wood's descendants, 
including the twin brothers, John and Benjamin Wood, 
the latter being the grandfather of the writer. He then 
determined to collect, if possible, all necessary data of 
said twin brothers and publish them for the love he has 
for the family, and for the gratification and pleasure of 
the present as well as future generations. 

Benjamin Wood was the writer's grandfather and died 
when the writer was eleven months old. Amasa Wood, 
the youngest son of Benjamin Wood, died in 1875. He 
was the writer's father and the last one of Benjamin's 
children to pass away. Four of the brothers of Amasa 
Wood had emigrated to western New York, Ohio, and 
Michigan before the writer was born. He soon began to 
realize he had quite a task on hand to get started in some 
of the families of both the brothers, John and Benjamin. 
The writer had, while a boy, seen all of Benjamin's chil- 
dren except Buckminster and Jessie. Joseph, the third 
son of Benjamin, went to Michigan. His wife and chil- 
dren all died previous to 1845, when he came back to New 
Hampshire, staying about a year, then he returned to his 
brother dames who lived in Geneseo, N. Y., where he- 
died. In 1850 the writer's uncle, James, came to Alstead. 
The writer could only spend one evening with him. He 
had seen the three daughters of Benjamin, but had lost 
all knowledge of the descendants of Lucy (Wood) Miller 
and Susannah (Wood) Hutchins. He also had but little 
knowledge of many of the twelve children of Col. John 
Wood. lie remembered of his father receiving;; letters-

from Buckminster, from some place in Ohio, and almost 
despaired of ever receiving any information from that 
family. He wrote to his brother, Col. E. E. Wood, who 
has practised patent law in Cincinnati, 0., forty years, 
and found his knowledge of the family was as limited as 
his own. He wrote to the postmaster of Geneseo, N. Y., 
requesting him to deliver a letter to some descendant of 
the late ct Major James Wood." It fell into the hands 
of John Young, Esq., who writes that Gen. James Wood, 
son of Maj. James Wood, was his uncle by marriage and 
had lived in his family for fifty years. This was the 
first ray the writer received from the four Western fami- 
lies, and resulted in his finding 235 descendants of 
Buckminster and Polly Brooks Wood, 170 of whom are 
still alive; most of them in the states of New York, 
Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Michigan. One letter con- 
tained thirty-four names of children and grandchildren 
of Buckminster Wood Darling, a grandson of Buckmin- 
ster Wood. The writer's experience in obtaining inform- 
ation from the descendants of Col. John Wood has been 
very fortunate. When a small boy he used to visit, with 
his father, three of the families in Surry, N. H., the 
Hills, the Browns, where the wife was the first teacher 
of the writer, the Holbrooks, who kept the hotel where the 
large teams from Vermont used to stop for feed or to 
stay over night on their way to market, then in Keene, 
the Babbitt boys, who helped their father carry on the 
farm where now are some of the most pleasant homes of 
Keene, also the two Metealfs, one marrying a daughter of 
Col. John Wood and the other a granddaughter, Harriet

lite after they moved to Lebanon, N. H., and where de- 
scendants are still flourishing in the same line of business 
pursued by father and grandfather; and last, but not 
least, the Willis family. The wife and mother, Betsey, 
a good Christian woman, was the mother of three of the 
daughters, Martha, Mary, and Lois, whom the writer was 
fortunate in meeting at Keene a few weeks since, after 
an absence of forty years. There was the Rev. John 
Wood, only son of Col. John, who passed away July, 
1900 ; the writer visited him in Fitchburg during the win- 
ter of 1889-'90, and whose three daughters live at Wei- 
Lesley, Mass.

the writer did not know where to find even one of Lucy

in either Hartland or Hartford, Vt. He visited Gov. S. 
E. Pingree who is town clerk of Hartford, and through 
his kind services found there were six girls in the fam- 
ily, all born in Orange, N. H., but brought up at West 
Hartford, N't. He found 155 descendants, one living in 
Cannan, N. II., being an own cousin of the writer. 
Another own cousin was found in Deerfield, N. H., a 
daughter of Susannah (Wood) Hutchins, and a third 
cousin in the person of Mrs. Louise Spier, daughter of 
Dr. Jesse Wood.

homestead farm, or the family of Sally (Wood) Huntley, 
who lived in Marlow, N. H., and whose descendants are 
quite numerous in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. 

That the numerous families might have at least a book 
knowledge of each other is reason enough for publishing 
this book. The writer has received a great deal of pleas- 
ure in meeting a few of the cousins and wishes it were 
possible for him to meet them all. He wishes to thank 
sincerely all who have so kindly helped in furnishing val- 
uable information, and trust the book may meet with a 
kind reception. 



CAPT. JOHN WOOD. 

FROM "DESCENDANTS OF THE BROTHERS JEREMIAH AND 

JOHN WOOD." 



John Wood, brother of Jeremiah Wood, married the 
oldest daughter of Col. Joseph Buekminster of Framiug- 

ham, Mass. 

The following is from the Town Records of Framing- 
ham. Mass.: Married, March 3, 1705, John Wood and 
Elizabeth Buekminster, both of this town. 

The great grandfather of Elizabeth (Buekminster) 
Wood, Thomas Buekminster, came to Boston in 1640, 
from England, and is named in the colonial records of 
that year. He was made freeman May 6, 1646. He 
was the owner of lands at Muddy River, now Brookline, 
Mass., where he lived. He died there Sept. 20, 1656. 
He left nine children. In his will he refers to Joseph as 
one of his youngest sons. The grandfather of Elizabeth 
(Buekminster) Wood was Joseph Buekminster, and was 
the fust of that christian name in this country. He mar- 
ried Elizabeth, daughter of Hugh and Elizabeth Clark of 
Watertown, Mass.. in 1665. 

They had two children, Joseph, born July 31, 1666; 
Elizabeth, baptized Nov. 10, 1668. 

The father died in L668. Joseph Buekminster, sec- 



CAPT. JOHN WOOD. 1 1 

oncl of the name, married May 12, 1686, Martha Sharpe 
of Muddy River, now Brookline, Mass. 

They were the parents of Elizabeth (Buekminster) 
Wood, wife of John Wood. 

His father, Joseph Buekminster, was a proprietor of 
land, and pioneer in settling Framing-ham where his 
name is first mentioned in 1693. His oldest child, Eliza- 
beth, married John Wood in Framingham, March 3, 
1705. He was seventeen years selectman, twelve years 
representative to the general court, and many years jus- 
tice of the peace. 

He held several military commissions ; commanded 
a company of grenadiers in Sir Charles Holley's regi- 
ment in the expedition to Port Royal, September, 1710; 
subsequently had the commaud of a colonial regiment of 
militia. 

Tradition describes him as being tall and athletic, of 
great physical power and of resolute will. 

" Anapolis Royal, a seaport of Nova Scotia, at the 
mouth of the river Anapolis which enters into the Bay of 
Fundy 95 miles west of Halifax. It was founded in 
1604 by the French who called it Port Royal." — Johnson's 
New Universal Cyclopedia, page 164. u In the autumn of 
1709, a congress of delegates of all the colonies met at 
Rhode Island and determined on an expedition against 
Canada. The British ministry approved of the proposal, 
and the immediate reduction of Port Royal was agreed 
upon Aug. 1, 1710. 

"Accordingly an English force came over in five fri- 
gates and a bomb ketch. They were joined by the colonial

troops, and started from Boston on the eighteenth of Sep- 
tember, 1710. On the twenty-fourth they arrived. at the 
place. The governor despairing to hold out against so 
formidable a force, surrendered after the firing of a few 
shots. "—Barton's History of N. H., pages 119-120. 

This was the expedition in which Col. Joseph Buck- 
minster took an active part. 

Joseph Buckmiuster, by his first wife, Martha Sharpe, 
had eight children (none by his second wife, Martha 
Dell). Had:

he settled at what is now Woodville, in the town of Hop- 
kinton, Mass., where his descendants now reside. He 
died in August, 1725. His widow married May 6, 1728, 
Josiab Rice of Framingham; he died in 1745, and Eliza- 
beth died several years later. 



Johanna Buckminster, second child of Joseph and 
Martha (Sharpe), b. 1690; m. June 23, 1712, John

than thirty years town clerk ; more than twenty years a 
representative at the general court. He died at the 
age of 83 years, after a long life of public service and 
personal worth. He had Joseph, b. March 1, 1720; he 
was the fourth Joseph Bnckminster in direct succession, 
and the first to enter the ministry ; graduated at Harvard 
college 1739, and was pastor at Rutland more than 50 
years. Rev. Joseph's son Joseph was b. Oct. 3, 1751 ; 
graduated at Yale college 1770 ; settled at Portsmouth, 
N. H. ; was Doctor of Divinity. Rev. Dr. Bnckminster 
gave an address and sermon in the North church, Ports- 
mouth, N. II., Nov. 1, 1789, before George Washington, 
during his visit to New Hampshire.

May 26, 1784; graduated 1800; was ordained over the 
Brattle Street church in Boston, Jan. 30, 1805, not 21 
years old. His father, Dr. Bnckminster, preached the

Deliver. 

Inside. 

December the 18, 171 8. Whithall. 
After my love to you these lines are to inform you that I

not by our often meetings. 
I pray mend these faults. 

And this for my part, 

John Wood, your loven brother. 
And as for my part I would gladly have come to see you this 
fall but your Brother would not, nevertheless I would be very

JOHN AND BENJAMIN WOOD. 

The twin brothers, John (220) and Benjamin (221), 
resembled each other very much. Their parents could 
hardly tell them apart when they were a short distance 
away, and to make sure of the right one used to call on 
them, John— Ben. 

Benjamin, after his return from the army on the Lex- 
ington alarm call, was married and had two children 
previous to his service in the army the second time. 

During his term of service the last time he returned 
home on a short furlough. His brother John proposed 
to him that he would fill his place for a few days, that he 
might stay at home with his wife and children a little 
longer, which he accordingly 'did, John's furlough after- 
wards giving him an opportunity to take his place again 
in the army. 

I herewith publish the Revolutionary War service of 
Thomas Wood (212), Benjamin Wood (221), and John 
Wood (220).

HISTORICAL SERMON. 

The following' is copied from a sermon preached at 
Alstead, N. II., on the first Sabbath in January, 1826, 
with historical sketches of the town, by Seth S. Arnold, 
A. M. : 

44 Thomas Wood of English descent, came from Brook- 
field, Mass., to this town, in March, 17H0. He married 
Molly Taylor of Hopkinton, Mass., by whom he had 
seven sons and three daughters. He took part in the 
war at Bunkers Hill, and at White Plains, before he 
came here. His sons' names were Thomas, Samuel, 
John, Benjamin, Joseph, William, and James. Thomas, 
Jnn., and Samuel continued in Massachusetts. Col. 
John AVood married Lois Olds for his first wife, and 
Widow Hutchins for his second, by both of whom he had 
twelve children ; the youngest is the only son. 

" Colonel Wood held a military commission twenty 
vears. John and Benjamin were twins. 

"Benjamin Wood married Lucy Olds, a sister of his 
brother John's wife, and after her death he married the 
Widow Willis, sister to his brother's second wife. 

44 He had six sons and five daughters. 1 The sons' names 

1 There is no other record which gives Benjamin Wood, twin brother 
of Col. John Wood, more than three daughters. They were Sally 
(Wood) Huntley, Lucy (Wood) Miller, and Susannah (Wood) Hutchins 
and an adopted daughter, Hariot (Wood) Isham. The Joseph Wood 
referred to, who practiced in Alstead about 1776, and William Wood 
"now in Canaan," and James Wood, who practiced in Hartford, Vt., 
were sons of Thomas (212) and Molly Taylor (213) Wood. Dr. James 
Wood above referred to, within the memory of the writer, lived with 
his daughter, Almira, in East Alstead, where he died. Another daugh- 
ter of his was Ann, who married Charles Dwinnell, who used to keep the 
"Sun Tavern" in Keene, N. H. They are both buried in the ceme- 
tery in Keene, N. H. 



26 BKNJAMIN WOOD AND HIS DESCENDANTS. 

were Buckminsler, Benjamin, James, Joseph, Jesse, 
and Amasa. Two of them now live in town. Jesse 
was a physician in the state of New York, and died a 
few years sin.ee. 

"Joseph Wood studied physiek with Doct. Wood of 
Grafton, Mass., and bega« practice in this place about 
1776, where he continued two or three years. William 
Wood came here about 1778, and is now in Canaan, 
iu this state. James Wood married Ann Holland of 
Pelham, Mass., by whom he had four sons and three 
daughters. He studied physic with Doct. Freeland, of 
Sutton, Mass., and commenced practice in Hartford, Vt., 
but has long since discontinued." 

The following is copied from a stone in the cemetery 
in Keene, N. H. : 

"Charles Dwinnell, Died May 28, 1879. Ae. 66 
years, 1 mos. 

" Ann his wife, Died Jan. 24, 187(5. Ae. 79 yrs."

BUCKMINSTER WOOD. 

226. Buckmhister Wood, the oldest son of Benjamin 
(221) and Lucy Olds (224) Wood, was born 
in Brookfield, Mass., April 8, 1776. When he 
was less than four years old, his brother Benja- 
min (228) was three, and his sister Sally (230) 
was ten months old, when their parents with 
their grandfather, Thomas (212), emigrated 
from Brookfield, Mass., to East Alstead, 
N. H. The one hundred miles' journey across 
the country, which must have taken three or 
four days, in the blustering month of March, 
goes to show the heroic nature of our ancestors. 
We find very few records of these families, 
except of births, marriages, and deaths. 

Bnckminster (22(5) married Polly Brooks (227) 
of Alstead, previous to 1800. He moved to 
Orange, Yt., where his daughters, Lucinda (27:5) 
and Sophia (270), and oldest son, Elias 
Howard (278), were born, and he next lived in 
Ludlowville, Tompkins Co., N. Y., and finally 
settled in Avon, Lorain Co., Ohio, where his 
wife, Polly Brooks (227), died, and was there 
buried. After her death he lived in Sandusky, 
Ohio, where he died about 1840, and was 
buried beside his wife in Avon, Ohio.

lie had five children ; the three oldest, Lucinda, 
Sophia, and Elias Howard, raised up large fam- 
ilies of children and grandchildren. Most of 
tliem settled in the states of New York, Pennsyl- 
vania, Ohio, and Michigan. His descendants 
at this time number two hundred and thirty- 
five, one hundred and seventy of whom are still 
living. Many of them did valiant service in 
the Union armies, in the War of the Rebellion.

Buckminster Wood Darling's mother was Sophia 
(276), second child of Buckminster Wood (226) and 
Polly Brooks (227) Wood. He moved on his land in 
Elsie, Michigan, in 1854, when it was wild and unculti- 
vated. He had to back his flour and provisions twelve 
miles through the forests, and experienced all the hard- 
ships of pioneer life. He was constable for several years, 
deputy sheriff fifteen years, and one of the foremost and 
influential citizens of his town and county. He brought 
up a family of eleven children ; all but one at this time of 
writing are still alive. He has had also nineteen grand- 
children, all but one now living.

X. II., at the same time; was pastor at Gilman- 
ton from 18 1.) to 1847; at Ossipee from May, 
1848, to October, 1863; at Ossipee Corner and 
Xorth AVolfeboro from 1863 to 1866 ; Gilsnmfrom 
1866 to 1<S75; without charge there from 1875 to 
1880 ; atWinslow, Maine, 1880-'81 ;Keene, X. H., 
until death. He was converted in the great re- 
vival at East Alstead in 1827, where eighty 
united with the church, ten of whom became min- 
isters. " Having chosen the ministry as his call- 
ing, in September, 1831, he set out on foot for 
Kimball Union Academy, Meriden, intending to 
work his way through college. The first term he 
supported himself, using what he earned during 
the summer, and also performing some manual 
labor at the school. After a little more than a 
year, his health failing from overwork, he was 
obliged to suspend his studies for three years, 
and ultimately gave up the idea of a collegiate 
course. This he termed the great trial of his 



64 DESCENDANTS OF BENJAMIN WOOD, JR. 

life. In 1836 his health had so far recovered 
that he was able to enter the Theological Sem- 
inary at Gilmanton, N. H., and was a member 
of the first class that graduated there." While 
at Gilsum he served the town as superintending 
school committee for six years. His health hav- 
ing somewhat failed, he was obliged to give up 
preaching in 1875, but for thirty-six years pre- 
vious he very seldom lost a Sabbath, and fre- 
quently spoke of his great enjoyment in the work 
of the gospel ministry, and his thankfulness that 
he had been so long spared to do it. It was dur- 
ing the early part of his ministry in Gilsum that 
a parsonage and lot were bought, and through 
his exertions the church edifice largely repaired 
and remodeled, and a new one purchased.

GENERAL JAMES WOOD. 

Mrs. Lydia Weckham Vosburgli (778), adopted 
daughter of Maj. James AVood (234), and who was 
brought up with Gen. James AVood (773), writes of him. 
" He prepared for college in the Geneseo AVesleyan Sem- 
inary, and graduated from the Union College, Schenec- 
tady, in 1842. His war record is known. He was gifted, 
brave, and true. 1 never saw him out of temper in my 
life, sweet and loving always. He was my childhood 
hero and idol." 

John Young, Esq., of Geneseo, N. Y., writes of him : 
" He was my uncle by marriage and lived in my fam- 
ily for fifty years. He was a man of much more than 
ordinary ability, and as a lawyer had few peers in wes- 
tern New York. He died very suddenly, with his har- 
ness on his back. During the AYar of the Rebellion, he 
raised and commanded the 136th N. Y. A^ols., and was 
at Cliancellorsville, Gettysburg, Mission Ridge, Chatta- 
nooga, and with Sherman in his march to the sea. Dur- 
ing the Sherman campaign he commanded a brigade, and 
received at the close of the war the promotion of Brevet 
Major General, U. S. Y. He was delightful in his life, 
a good citizen, and a Christian."

Rev. John Wood (270), in a letter to Rev. Sumner G. 
Wood dated Nov. 29, 1897, writes: "In my early boy- 
hood days, Fast days and Thanksgiving days were days 
of obligation. All good citizens were bound by conscience 
to strict observance according to scriptures as then un- 
derstood and interpreted. The one service on Thanks- 
giving days, and the two services and sermon on Fast 
days were more generally attended by the people than 
the average Sabbath congregation. All were accommo- 
dated in going as they went on foot or ' rode on horse- 
back.' The older children went on foot, the fathers and 
mothers on horseback, and carriages were not then intro- 
duced. My father brought the first wagon into East Al- 
stead. Previous to this we rode to church on horseback, 
father in the saddle and I in his lap, mother behind on a 
pillion (attached to the saddle and the crupper by leather 
strings), and my sister in her lap. Our horse was not a 
large one, though her ability for duty I never heard 
doubted. AVhen on a trot she took special care to plant 
her feet on safe and solid ground. The pommel of the 
saddle, which was my seat, was not soft. In this way we 
used to go a day's journey annually, to visit my grand- 
parents in Winchester, N. H. Keene was the halting and 
baiting place. This mode of conveyance was general 
among the people at that time except in snow drifting 
in winter, then oxen and teams furnished accommoda- 
tions. Foot stoves furnished all the heat in the meeting- 
house, replenished at noon at a neighbor's fireplace, when 
lunch and the sermon were discussed, sometimes rather 
warmly."

The Congregationalist of February, 1899, contains 
an article entitled " Rills from the Hills," which gives a 
short account of the church in East Alstead, N. II.. 
where the two families of Col. John and Benjamin Wood 
were brought up. 

"Bethlehem, though small, gave the world the greatest 
prince it ever saw. So some of our little churches, weak, 
neglected by the larger ones because of their littleness 
and retired situation, have sent forth streams of bless- 
ing that have been a real addition to the world's good. 

"Such a church is that in East Alstead. Organized 
in 1788, the second Congregational church in the town, 
three miles from the parent church, settling its first min- 
ister, Levi Lankton, the following year, erecting its meet- 
ing-house in 1798, which still remains, served by four- 
teen ministers to the present time, and having only 472 
members in all from the beginning, it has left a record 
that some larger churches might covet. Levi Lankton 
closed his labors in 1823, though not formally dismissed 
until 1828. Though a good man, for some reason his 
influence over his people in the last of his life among 
them waned. 

"Additions were few. Irreligion, profanity, and intem- 
perance prevailed. The parish acquired the name of 
'Satan's kingdom,' Satan being the man who kept the 
groggviy near the church. From 1823 to 1826 Rev. S. S. 
Arnold of the parent church ministered for one fourth of 
the lime, so the light never went out of the sanctuary. 
But there were a few praying ones whose hearts were 
almost broken over the situation. In 1826 Moses Ger- 



144 DESCENDANTS OF COL. JOHN WOOD. 

ould, a student of theology with Mr. Arnold, offered to 
o-o over to the East parish and hold meetings every Sun- 
day, and his offer was accepted. 

"For the first few Sabbaths the carpenter's saw and 
plane could be heard on one side of the place of meeting 
and the rattle of toddy sticks upon the other. But God's 
spirit soon came upon the place with mighty power, and 
the whole place was shaken as by a mighty rushing wind, 
with the result of not only bringing into the church that 
year fifty-two members, forty being heads of families, 
but of entirely changing the character of the parish. 
Every corner was reached, and from being a Sabbath- 
breaking, godless community, it became as sober, God- 
fearing, industrious a place as could be found. For 
some years from 150 to 200" were present at the weekly 
prayer meetings held in the afternoon. Mr. Gerould was 
ordained its pastor in 1828, as soon as he had finished 
his studies, and served it in all more than eighteen years. 
During this time and afterwards it was regarded as a 

model parish. 

" Out of that revival and subsequent ones ten ministers 
went forth from that little church to bless the world, as 
well as four ministers' wives. Among the ministers may 
be mentioned Harvey Adams, one of the Iowa band, who 
lived just across the line in Acworth, but who came 
under the influence of this work of grace. While reli- 
gion was the chief business of the people, education was 
not neolected. ' Select schools ' were opened for the ed- 
ucation of the young men and women, who gladly availed 
themselves of the opportunity, and ' subscription schools ' 



DESCENDANTS OF COL. JOHN WOOD. 145 

each year added to the length of the public schools for 
the benefit of the younger ones. Singing schools and 
writing schools brought the privileges of these accom- 
plishments within the reach of all. 

" The pastor's part of this educational work may be 
better understood from a record he has left when in 
speaking of the men who became ministers he says 
' nearly every one I carried to Meriden (Kimball Union 
Academy) the first time, and many other times, and to 
college also. 

4 "Though the town has suffered from the death and 
emigration of many of its best people of former times, 
the light in that old sanctuary has not ceased to burn 
and to brighten many a heart. Nature has done much 
for the village and parish, overlooking as it does War- 
ren's pond and its surrounding slopes, while in the dis- 
tant west is seen the long stretch of the Green Moun- 
tains of Vermont, lifting themselves against the sky.' 1

HENRY WOOD CARTER. 
I. 

1008. Henry Wood Carter was b. in Concord, N. II., 
March 11, 1822 ; m. Caroline A. Leavitt (1009), 
May 2, 1843 ; m. 2d, Julia E. AVilson (1010), 
May 1, 1848; m. 3d, Marion Ardelia Rice 
(1011), Aug. 7, 1859; d. at Lebanon, N. H., 
Feb. 25, 189 7. 

When Henry Wood Carter was quite young his parents 
moved to Warner and followed the business of tavern 
keeping there and at Bradford. When a mere boy he 
was sick a year with rheumatic fever, and while yet very 
lame opened a small fancy goods store in one corner of 
his father's bar-room — as the public room was then 
called. Here young Carter learned the rudiments of the 
business he followed through life. At sixteen he went 
to Concord to travel for Mr. Boyd at $20 per month, and 
later engaged with Roby, Kimball & Merrill, Concord, 
book publishers. He sold from a team to country stores. 
Leaving Concord after a few years he next traveled with 
a big team, for Stephen Thayer of New Ipswich, who had 
thirty teams on the road stocked with essences, extracts,

and notions. After saving a few hundred dollars he em- 
barked in the Yankee notion business on his own account, 
and immediately attracted the attention of customers by 
his gorgeous team, in which he took great pride. He 
first had headquarters at Amherst, where he married his 
first wife, Caroline Leavitt, who died two years after- 
wards. Soon after the death of his first wife he moved 
to Chelsea, Vt., where he married Julia Wilson, and 
after her decease, Marion A. Rice of Chelsea. Mr. Car- 
ter bought the residence where he died, of Hon. A. H. 
Cragin, Aug. 1, 1859, and Lebanon has since been his 
home, although for more than 30 years after moving 
here he spent but little time in town, he finding both 
pleasure and profit in personally conducting his business 
of traveling merchant, in which he had no peer. At one 
time he had three fonr-horse teams serving his customers, 
all of which were the best ever seen in this country in a 
similar business. He was diligent in business, and the 
ostentatious methods adopted by him in his trade did not 
extend to his personal affairs, as he mingled little with 
his neighbors and would never accept the smallest pub- 
lic office. Mr. Carter was naturally strong physically, 
strictly temperate and extremely generous with his rela- 
tives and personal friends. He brought his aged parents 
to Lebanon and their last days were passed in affluence 
and comfort.
