preface. 



The comi:)iler of this book is not a i^rofessional genealogist, and lias 
not tried to follow prescribed custom, but rather his own idea of wliat 
such a work should be. It is hoped that, with a careful reading of the 
explanatory notes, it may be an easy matter for any one to grasp the 
intent of the book on first examination. 

We are painfully conscious that many family records are incomplete, 
the fault for which depends mostly on descendants who neglected or 
declined to respond to requests for information. Effort was made to have 
every i-ecord complete, and brief sketches have been included whenever 
possible. 

Mention should be made of valuable assistance rendered by many 
members of the family, which has been greatly appreciated by the com- 
piler, and without which the undertaking would have been almost a 
failure. In justice, therefore, to those who have thus kindly aided, we 
desire to ascribe the success of this work. They are too numerous to be 
named in detail. A few, however, have really been co-workers, without 
whose aid little could have been recorded. Mrs. Tlieodore S. Wood of 
Westminster, Mass. ; James B. Wood and his brother Albert, of Concord, 
Mass. ; Charles P. Wood of Gardner, Mass., and his brother. Cyrus K., of 
Athol Centre, Mass.; Edward S. Tillotson of Wethersfield, Conn., and 
Samuel R. Hey wood of Worcester. These are all representatives of what 
might be called the New England branch. The Pennsylvania branch, so- 
called, was formed by the migration of Samviel Wood (son of Nathan) 
and his family in 1809 to East Smithfield, Penna. From him as ancestor 
sprang up a race, numerically composing nearly half the names in this 
history, and to the compiler, who is of this line, and the entire Penn- 
sylvania branch, the New England relatives were entirely unknown, and 
the same condition was true vice-versa. This genealogy will serve to 
introduce them to each other, and perhaps make each of us prouder of the 
fact that we are members of so worthy a clan. 

The publication of this book does not conclude the voluntary labors 
of the compiler. As Historian of the Smithfield branch he proposes to 
continue the records and if those who read the book will supply informa- 
tion regardmg any family not herein complete, it will be carefully record- 
ed and a revised edition of this book published later with complete in- 
formation. If life is spared, the year 1909, which will witness the centen- 
nial celebration of the Smithfield branch, would be a very appropriate 
date for the issiie of a revision, and the compiler now pledges tliat if 
health permits he will publish a completer book to be ready for distribu- 
tion Sep. 4, 1909. With this in mind all interested persons are urged to 
commtmicate any errors or omissions discovered in this book, and subse- 
quent changes as they occur, to the compiler.

Corrected Errors and Changes. 



The printing of so man^ names and dates necessarily involves many 
errors, either in nialvinj? copy from poor manuscript information, or in 
type setting. There are probably many eri-ors in the book not yet revealed; 
but a careful examination has brought the following to light. The 
reading as it appears here in italics is correct and changes should be made 
in the body of tlie book to correspond. Some deaths have occured since 
the book went to press whicli are noted here.

g-eplanatorij. 



Readei's will be aided in the examination by noticing the following 
points : Each generation constitutes a division ; succeeding generations 
are carried forward in numerical, and family order. A light faced figure 
preceding the name of a child indicates that there is no further record. A 
black faced figure sliows that this cliild married and had a family which 
will be found in the next generation under the same number. A star 
following a name indicates that the person is dead, and usually that death 
occurred before a marriageable age ; particulars and date if known are 
given in foot notes. A dagger f indicates a personal history, which will 
be found in the foot notes. No family record is carried to next genera- 
tion unless there was issue, and sufficient information to make a respecta- 
ble showing. Note particularly the following : 

The names of husband and wife are put in black face tyi^e, so that 
they may be quickly and easily recognized. While " no abbreviations" 
is the rule, there is an omission of connecting prepositions in statistical 
information whenever possible to save space. In reading they should be 
supplied mentally. Wherever no state is named, 3Iass. is always intended. 
Wherever " Svdthfield" occurs it means " East Smithfield, Bradford Co., 
Pa.'' These occur so frequently that it saves much valuable room to 
omit. In giving the ancestral line after the name, William 1, is omitted, 
because it seems entirely superfluous to use it. It should be mentally 
supplied to every name in the book. N. f . r. means no further record. 



First Generation* 



William Woocl, born in England in 1582. Married, date 
unknown, Margaret . Emigrated from Matlock, Derby- 
shire, England, in 1638, and went to Concord, Mass., where he 
was one of the first settlers. His wife died Sept 1, 1659, and 
he died May 14, 1671. 

History cites the fact that he filled many important offices 
in the town. For a full sketch of his life see appendix. 

2 Michael Wood, born in England. 

3 Ruth Wood, probably born in England. 



Second Generation. 



Michael Wood, {William'^) was born in England, prob- 
ably at Matlock, in Derbyshire. No record of the date, or of 
his marriage to his wife Mary. Neither can any record be 
found of the birth of any of his children, except two. It is 
probable that Abigail was the oldest and Jacob the youngest. 
In just what order they should come is entirely a matter of 
conjecture. The three last are probably correct, as any one 
could easily surmise. On the first settlement at Concord 
Michael had a house and lot near the common. Later he 
settled upon the farm now occupied by Samuel Dennis, where 
he died May 13, 1674. His death must have been sudden, as 
he left no will. There is no record of his wife's death. His- 
tory says he was heavily interested in the iron works at Concord. 

4 Abigail Wood, born Concord, April 10, 1643. 

5 John Wood, Concord, date unknown. 

6 Nathaniel Wood*, Concord, date unknown. 

7 Mary Wood*, Concord, date unknown. 

8 Thomson Wood, Concord, date unknown. 

9 Abraham Wood, Concord, date unknown. 

10 Isaac Wood, Concord, date unknown. 

11 Jacob Wood, Concord, March 3, 1662. 
Natbaaiel died March 7, 16B2 ; Mary died April 24, 1663, 



10 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 



Ruth Wood, ( William'^ ) was born in England, probably 
at Matlock, in Derbyshire. She married at Concord, date un- 
known. Captain Thomas Wheeler. He bought 800 acres of 
land north of Groton in 1674, granted to the Flints of Concord. 
He commanded the company at Brookfield in August, 1675. 
He died Dec. 10, 1676. Ruth's death not recorded. 

12 Thomas Wheeler, born Concord. 

13 Nathaniel Wheeler*, Concord. 

Nathaniel probably never married. He died Jan. 16, 1676. 



Third Generation* 



Abigail Wood, {Michael^) was born in Concord, Mass., 
April 10, 1642. Married May 24, 1667, Stephen Hosmer, son 
of James and Alice Hosmer, born Concord, Oct. 27, 1642. 
Abigail (4) died Jan. 5, 1717. Her husband, Stephen, died 
Dec. 15, 1714. 

14 Mary Hosmer, born Concord, May 2, 1668. 

15 Abigail Hosmer, Concord, Nov. 6, 1669. 

16 John Hosmer, Concord, Aug. 31, 1671. 

17 Ruth Hosmerj, Concord, Aug. 28, 1675. 

18 Dorothy Hosmer, Concord, Dec. 10, 1677. 

19 Stephen Hosmer, Concord, June 27, 1680. 

20 Hannah HosMERf, Concord, Dec. 10, 1682. 

21 James HosmerI, Concord, June 27, 1685. 

+ No further record of Ruth. Hannah was married March 8, 1711, to John Buss of 
Lancaster, Mass. No further record of James. 



John Wood, {Michael'^) place and date of birth unknown. 
Married Nov. 13, 1677, Ehzabeth Vinton of Concord. John 
(5) died Jan. 3, 1728. His wife, Elizabeth, died April 8, 1728. 

22 Elizabeth Wood, born Concord, July 15, 1678. 

23 John W^ood, Jr., Concord, Nov. 13, 1680. 

24 Abraham Wood, Concord, Aug. 17, 1682. 

25 William Wood, Concord, Mar. 4, 1687. 

26 Ruth Wood*, Concord, Feb. 11, 1692. 
* Ruth died Nov. 10, 1715. 



THIRD GENERATION. 11 



8 



Thomson Wood, {Michael"^) place and date of birth un- 
known. He married Martha , date unknown. There is 

a record of two children, and nothing further. It is supposed 
that he left Concord and settled in some other town, at present 
unknown. 

27 Martha Wood, born Concord, July 4, 1696. 

28 Mercy Wood, Concord, Nov. 13, 1698. 

It is possible that his name was Thomas, instead of Thomson. The Concord records 
show as above recorded. This family is the only one about which nothing is literally 
known. We have been unat>le to pick him up in any of the surrounding towns, and prol)- 
ably his history is lost for all time. 



9 

Abraham Wood, {MichaeP) place and date of birth un- 
known. Married Sarah , date unknown, probably about 

1682. He was a prominent citizen of Concord and spent his 
active life there. He was town clerk from 1701 to 1703, and 
selectman from 1701 to 1704. It is likely that after his son, 
Abraham, returned to Sudbury to live Abraham and his wife 
went there also, to spend their declining: years, as their deaths 
are recorded in that town. Abraham died Sept. 12, 1746, and 
his widow, Sarah, Feb. 24, 1748. 

29 Abraham WooDf, born Concord, April 16. 1684. 

30 Mary Wood, Concord, June 25, 1686. 

31 Sarah Wood, Concord, Sept. 11, 1692. 

32 Rebecca Wood, Concord, Dec. 23, 1693. 

33 Samuel WooDf, Concord, Oct, 17, 1697. 

34 Abigail Wooof, Concord, Sept. 27, 1699. 

+ In the Concord., Mass.., Birihs; Marriages and Deaths^ published by the town of Con- 
cord about 1895, on page 57, will be found the following record copied from the Concord 
Registers, Book II, and made by Thomas Brown, the town clerk, who was succeeded by 
Abraham Wood (9). ^^ Abraham TFood, son to Abraham Wood and Sarah, his wife, dyed 
February ye 1th, 1697-8" 

This record was a puzzle to the compiler because, if true, it destroyed the succession 
of the Abraham family and would throw out the compiler's family line from the William 
AVood family descent. After very careful search of all ordinary records the probate 
records were examined in detail and here we found positive proof that the entry in the 
Concord Register was an error. A careful reading of Abraham Wood's will (a true copy 
of the original, which is presented in the appendix) ought to convince any one of the cer- 
taintj' of our proof. It will be noted that he wills to every member of his family, except 
Samuel (33), and specifically notes his grandsons, children of his well beloved son, Abra- 
ham, which is evidence sufficient to declare this entry an error. As we find no further 
record of Samuel, it is probable that it was Samuel who died, and the year 1698. 

Abigail married John Booth. No meution of any person named Booth appears in the 
Concord Register and neither the Sudbury nor Concord records show this marriage or the 
death of either. It is probable that Booth was a temporary resident, and they must have 
been married in an adjoining town, as seemed frequently to be done in those days. That 
the marriage was a failure, is explained in Abraham's will, Nothing further is known. 



12 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 



10 



Isaac Wood, {Michael'^) place and date of birth unknown. 
Married Elizabeth Merriam, date unknown. Had four chil- 
dren. Elizabeth died May 12, 1717, and Isaac married (2) 
April 20, 1722, Susanna Biscon, by whom he had five chil- 
dren. He died at Concord, January 11, 1740. No record of 
wife's death. 

35 Isaac Wood, Jr. t, born Concord, 



36 Mary WooDf, Concord, Mar. 17, 1689. 

37 Elizabeth Wood, Concord, April 8, 1693. 

38 Jonathan WooDf, Concord, Jan. — , 1699. 

39 Mehit ABLE Wood t, ) ^ , t i i i-to4 

40 Michael Wood, '' f Concord, July 1, 1724. 

41 Samuel Wood, Concord, April 22, 1726. 

42 Martha Wood, Concord, Jan, 29, 1728. 

* 43 Susanna WooDf, Concord, Aug, 19, 1732. 

t No record appears of the birth of Isaac, Jr., but a will of Isaac Wood, Jr., is recorded 
in Cambridge, dated Aug 25, 1T27. Probated Sept. 11, 1727, in which occur the following 
bequests : (1) To my honored fathar, Isaac Wood, 40 shillings a year, and a decent burial, 
if his own personal estate will not provide it. (2) To my two sisters, Mary Daney and Eliza- 
beth Lee. (3) To the children of my sister, Mary Daney. £20. (4) To the child of Eliza- 
beth Lee 420. (.5) To my brother, Jonathan Wood, aU of my land, also all my movable 
estate, both within doors and without. 

It is evident from' this that Isaac never married, and that he died between Aug. 25 and 
Sept. 11, 1727. 

Mary married January 12, 1707-8, to Joseph Daney of Concord. No further record ap- 
pears, but the fact is verified by Isaac's will, and also Jonathan's. 

Jonathan lived single and died about Sept. 20, 1758. His will, written Sept. 18, 1758, 
was probated at Cambridge, Sept. 25, 1758, and contains the following bequests : (1) To 
my sister, Mary Daney (2) To my sister, Elizabeth Lee. (3) To my brother, Michael 
Wood. (4) To the children of my brother, Samuel Wood, to be paid to their guardian. 
(5) ro my sister, Martha Sleeper. (6) To my sister, Susanna Whitcomb. (7) To my 
??^v^',5' ^^^^ ^®?- '''^ To my cousin, Bathsheba Lee. (9) To my cousin, Elizabeth Lee. 
(lU) lo my cousin, A\ oodis Lee. These cousins are all children of his sister, Elizabeth Lee. 

hince Jonathan probably mentioned every living member of the family in this will it 
IS rair to assume that Isaac's wife, Susanna, died previous to 1758 ; also, Mehitable. No 
certain record can be found of Samuel's marriage. He died before 1758 and left children, 
busanna must have married a man named Whitcomb, but no record can be found. 



11 

Jacob Wood, {Michael") born Concord, March 3, 1662. 
Married, April 15, 1697, Mary Wheeler, daughter of John 
Wheeler and Sarah Larkin. She was born in Concord, Sept.

44 Jacob Wood, born Concord, Nov. 3, 1698. 

45 Mary Wood, Concord, July 14, 1700. 

46 Ephraim Wood, Concord, Feb. 4, 1702.

48 Hannah Wood, Concord, Aug. 29, 1705. 



FOURTH GENERATION. 13 

12 

Thomas Wheeler, {Rzith^) bom Concord, date unknown. 

Married Sarah , date unknown. He died Jan. 9, 1676, 

and his widow died Feb. 1, 1676. The Concord records show 
the following- children born to Thomas and Sarah, and the 
editor assumes that they are correct, as belonging to this 
family. 

49 Joseph Wheeler*, born Concord, Aug. 18, 1651. 

50 Ann Wheeler*, Concord, Dec. 22, 1653. 

51 John WHEELERf, Concord, Feb. 18, 1655.

* Joseph died-Mar. 16, 1677 ; Ann died Mar. 20, 1677 ; Mary died May 26, 1668. 

t John married Dec. 28, 1678, to Sarah Stearns. He died Sept. 27, 1713. Ruth married 
Jan. 10, 1709, to Eleazer Robbins. The entire Wheeler record is uncertain, but supposed 
to be correct, according to Concord records.

tled in Stow, but moved in 1756 to Westminster, where on 
Feb. 10 he purchased from Daniel Goodnow the large estate 
composed of lots 28 and 67. This property is still in the fam- 
ily, having descended to Ahijah and Theodore S, who now 
occupies it. Nathan Wood is probably the most noteworthy 
man in this book in many ways. He was the progenitor of 
more than one'half the descendants of this Wood clan, his son 



22 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

Samuel alone standing sponsor for more than nine hundred 
known as the Pennsylvania branch. He was a man of highest 
character, upright, devout, patriotic, christian in spirit and in 
life, and to his honor be it said that his descendants have been 
worthy and christian followers of this most illustrious parent. 
His marked personal qualities seemed to impress his fellow- 
townsmen forcibly at an early day, and won for him their regard 
and confidence. Within a year of his settlement there he was 
elected one of the Standing Committee of the township, and 
after the Act of Incorporation took effect, was five years chosen 
assessor and nine years selectman. He was the first repre- 
sentative to the Colonial Legislature and was a member of that 
body when it convened at Salem in Oct., 1774, and converted 
itself into the first Provincial Congress, thus leading the revolt 
which resulted in the independence of the Colonies. He was 
also a delegate to the two succeeding Provincial Congresses. 
He thus goes down to posterity as one of the first legislators 
of this great republic. He was a deeply religious man and 
always stood steadfast and true to the cause of civil and relig- 
ious liberty. He was an earnest worker in the church, in which 
he held the office of deacon. His wife was also a woman of 
great self-reliance and force of character, and highly esteemed 
for her many virtues. Their solidity of character has been well 
depicted in many of their descendants. Nathan died June 18, 
1777, and his entire family were present at his burial. His 
widow married Nathan Howard and died Mar, 20, 1819.

him : " Hon. Ephraim Wood was bred a shoemaker. Had no 
other education than that offered by the common schools of the 
day. Though he did not possess what are called brilliant tal- 
ents, he had a calm, considerate mind and sound judgement. 
As early as 1771 he was chosen town clerk, selectman, assessor 
and overseer of the poor; and re-elected twenty-seven years, 
and for much of the spirit of those times we are indebted to 
him, as history will fully show. He was one of the first jus- 
tices appointed by the council after the secession from British 
authority and held the office during the remainder of his life. 
From Feb., 1776, to 1798 he married many couples. He was 
also one of the judges of the Court of Common Pleas. The 
American Revolution called into exercise his active and vigor- 
ous powers, and as a magistrate and in various departments he 
rendered important service to the country. In domestic life his

adjoining Ahijah's. He died March 23, 1846, aged 90. She 
died Feb. 7, 1839. Abel was one of the most prominent men 
in Westminster in his time. History says : " He was foremost 
in everything designed to promote the welfare of the commu- 
nity." His interest in patriotism, philanthropy and religion 
was intense and sincere. Like many others of the Wood fam- 
ily he was an excellent singer and taught the first singing school 
in the town. He held for many years the most important offices 
and went as representative to the General Convention for four 
successive terms. In 1805 he received a commission as justice 
of the peace. He was deeply interested, probably through the 
natural family patriotism, in the militia and rose to the rank of 
lieutenant colonel of the Fourth Massachusetts regiment in 
1802, and at the opening of the war of 1812 received a colonel's 
commission. He was not called into the tented field, however. 
As his honor shone in the community so did that of his family, 
and his character is reflected through the succeeding generations.

ville, Holden. Here her married life was spent, seven child- 
ren born. After nearly half a century her husband died and 
the remainder of her life was spent with her children in Michi- 
gan and Worcester, the last eight years with her daughter 
Myra Davis in Worcester. She celebrated her one hundredth 
birthday in 1895, and her portrait herewith presented is from 
a photograph taken on that day. At that time she retained her 
faculties to a wonderful degree. While her hearing and sight 
and powers of locomotion were impaired to a considerable de- 
gree, they were quite as good as with many of less years. 
Her memory of past events however was phenomenal, and 
conversation with her on early times was extremely interesting. 
She had lived under every president and remembered distinctly 
the impression produced on the country by the death of Wash- 
ington, also the fact that her father and others wore crape at 
that time. She and her husband were passengers on the first 
railroad train from Worcester to Boston in 1835. At the period 
of her centennial, her direct descendants included eleven grand 
children and seven great grand children. Up to her 96th year 
she could walk comfortably on the street. She joined the Con- 
gregational Church early in life and continued a faithful mem- 
ber to the day of her death. She lacked but eight days of be- 
ing one hundred and three years old at her death, which occur- 
red at the home of her daughter Myra, in Worcester, July 4, 
1898.

anchored in Calcutta harbor SeiDt. 21, where they stayed one 
month and then proceeded to Bombay, where they arrived Nov. 
28. and at once entered upon their missionary work. After a 
time her health failed, but she recovered and resumed work with 
unfaltering zeal. On the morning: of Feb. 5, 1831, at 6:30 she 
gave birth to a son, with no apparent signs of serious conse- 
tjucnces. An unforeseen change soon occurred and she died 
three hours later. Her funeral was held at 5 P. M. the same 
day. Myra had been an enthusiastic christian worker before her 
marriage. As the result of the religious interest she awakened 
in her Sunday School class, the year she was married, and 
among her neighbors, over one hundred persons were convert-

and consecrated christian woman, was written by Rev. M.

and Hannah Clark. (John Clark was born April 21, 1746,. 
served seven years in the Revolutionary war and spent his last 
years with Muses in Smithfield, and died there Oct. 1, 1827. 
Hannah, his wife, was bom Feb. 16, 1747, and died July 21, 
1823.) He returned at once with his wife to Smithfield and 
made for himself a home in the primeval forest, on the south- 
west part of the 400 acre tract of land which his father had 
boujjht of Isaac Shepard, of Milltown (now Waverly). It was 
all forest and heavily timbered. Like his brothers he was 
brave, healthy and industrious. With courag-e, and little else 
except a wife, he built a cabin of logs for his home and began 
to fell the forest, burn the timber and prepare the earth to yield 
them their support. He spent more hours in labor than many 
others of his time. His wants did not surprise him. He antici- 
pated them. His life, like his father's, was one of hard strug-- 
gle, but he succeeded in creating a fine farm out of a wilder- 
ness, and his late years were years of pleasantness and peace. 
As a citizen of the embryo town of Smithfield he did much to 
promote its early prosperity. He was a religious man and 
punctually attended the evening meetings which at this time 
were held in the cabins of the early settlers. Missionaries came 
frequently from the eastern states and preached to the assem- 
bled settlers. During this early period Moses thought he had 
a call to the ministry. Uncle Joel writes, " I remember his 
first effort m this line. It was in my father's cabin. I remem- 
ber his prayer and sermon. I think father was favorably im- 
pressed by his performance, but he soon changed his mind and 
concluded he was mistaken about the call. His reason as ex- 
plamed to a minister who asked the ground of his change, was 
that he could not see much in a text of Scripture that ministers 
found there and told in their preaching. He was conscientious 
m his view of duty and preached until convinced of his mistake 
and then he qint and resumed the even tenor of his way'' 
Uncle Joel also says. He was the foremost farmer in the 
ownship. His remarkable industry was finally rewarded by 
he best cultivated and most productive farm in that section. 
He raised the most corn to the acre and the finest cattle, which

which he became so celebrated that his opinion was sought in

are not surprised that Moses became the leading man during 
his active life in this new town, practically founded by his 
father. The hardships of his early life, however, made him an 
old man before his time, and he was not permitted to live out 
the average period of his ancestors. He lived long enough, 
however, to see nearly all his children married and to trot some 
of his grandchildren on his knee, among whom was the writer 
of these lines. He died April 9, 1852, aged 63. The home- 
stead fell to Richardson, with whom his mother lived for a 
time. She then went to the home of her oldest daughter, Lois 
(Holmes), who lived on the hill near the centre (as the village 
proper was called) and here she spent her last days, passing 
away March 1, 1855. Her death and funeral are the earliest 
recollections of the writer, then a boy of six years. He well 
remembers the funeral, which occurred March 3, in a snow 
storm, and the journey to the cemetery was in sleighs. 

Of the family of Moses Wood it may justly be said that the 
five boys all became strong men. Two only lived their lives 
in Smithfield. Of these one was snatched in the very infancy 
of his glorious manhood ; the other. Merit, lived to be a pillar 
of the church and the town as well, a most worthy successor of 
his father and grandfather.

they moved into the town and spent the rest of their lives 
there. James was a farmer and blacksmith. He served as 
first lieutenant, captain and quartermaster in the Pennsylvania 
militia. In 1810, on account of ill health, he shipped as stew- 
ard on the " Keziah," at New Haven, Conn., for Spain, and 
was absent about a year. He was one of Smithfield's most

Oct. 10, 1816, Lucy Hackett, daughter Asa Hackett, born in 
Colerain, Mass., April 5, 1799. He was a sturdy boy of fifteen 
when his father emigrated to Smithfield, but he played more than 
a boy's part in the opening up of the wilderness home. After 
seven hard years' work he married and settled on the farm 
afterward known as the Ezra Allen place, later owned by A. R. 
Dutton. After a residence there of about nine years he sold 
the place that he might aid his father, who had become consid- 
erably involved in debt, contracted in bringing up his large 
family, by purchasing a part of the homestead. This move was 
made with reluctance, as his farm was in splendid condition, 
but filial love overcame his personal desires and he went to the 
relief of his father and took that part of the farm lying north 
of and adjoining the homestead. From that time, so long as 
his parents lived, he did much to make their declining years 
happy and comfortable. Ezra was a man of peace and piety 
He was one of the organizers of the Disciple church and a dea- 
con from that time till July, 1849, when he was elected an elder 
and so remained till his death. In 1857 he made a visit to 
Uncle Joe . who lived in Palatine, 111. While there they under- 
took one day to walk from Marengo to Woodstock, a distance 
of nme miles. Ezra suddenly became lame and complained of 
a pain in his hip which became so severe that he could not 
walk, rhey hailed a passing train and rode the rest of the 
way 1 his was the beginning of a painful hip disease which 
made him a cripple for the remainder of his life. He did not

parents and for nine years toiled with his family to make a 
home. He injiu-ed his health by the severe work imposed in 
chopping down trees, and in consequence was sent to a high 
school at Tioga Point, designing to study medicine. He studied 
for a time and then engaged as clerk in Clement Paine's store 
at the Point, but not being able to do the heavy work required 
he quit and resolved to try farming again. His father gave 
him a piece of land west of the Hale farm and south of the road. 
He proceeded to clear the land as his health would permit ,and 
built a small frame house. He then married, and they began 
housekeeping at once in the new home. During the winters 
before his marriage he had taught school, boarding at home, 
the wages received therefor being of important assistance in 
his struggle to establish his home. In 1828 he was converted 
and became a preaching teacher. The service he rendered in 
this line is detailed in the church history noted in the Appen- 
dix. Although in poor health from overwork in boyhood, an 
affliction which clung to him all his life, he was yet able to 
establish a comfortable and happy home and rear a family of 
children who grew to noble manhood and womanhood and 
whose children are to-day filling creditable and honorable places 
in the world. His wife died in Smithfield, May 16, 1856. At 
some date thereafter he married the widow of his brother 
Nathan (395) with whom he lived till his death, Feb. 17, 1873. 
In his home life he had the usual reputation which surrounds

the Wood family, a credit to himself, beloved and respected by 
all with whom he came in contact. His religious life was even 
more marked than that of others in his family. He was a 
faithful member of the Baptist church till the organization of 
the Disciple church, when he cast his lot with them as one of 
the founders, and ever after was a leader as well as teacher. 
He baptized many of the Wood family. His body lies in the 
cemetery on the hill, which contains very many of those whose 
names are in this book.

Rebecca Wood, ( Samuel" ^ ^ , Nathan^ ^ " , Abraham" ^ , 
Abraham\ Michael^,) born Halifax, Vt., May 16, 1799. She 
came with the family to Smithfield and was married in 1819 to 
John Esterbrooks Hale. They located on the Burlington 
road, on the place later known as the Tuttle farm. 

John was born in Warren, R. L, Sept. 7, 1796, son of Ben- 
jamin Hale, born in Bristol, R. I., Jan. 15, 1771, and Keziah 
Rounds, born in Rehoboth, Mass., June 23, 1777. His father's 
family removed from Rhode Island to Halifax in 1809, and two 
years later followed the Wood family to Smithfield. As an in- 
teresting fact it may be noted that Deacon Benjamin Hale 
bought the farm in Halifax that Samuel Wood left, and after- 
ward sold it to David Allen and came to Smithfield to live, 
settling on a farm half a mile south of Samuel Wood's. David 
Allen sold the same farm in 1817 to Samuel Niles and moved 
to Smithfield, locating half a mile north of Samuel Wood. 
In 1836 Samuel Niles sold the farm and came to Smithfield. 
Evidently the old Halifax farm was a good place to emigrate 
from, so far at least as Smithfield was concerned. It contrib- 
uted four sterling families to the new town, who became per- 
manent residents and valued citizens. Nothing now remains 
of the old place in Halifax but the curbless well and moss 
grown doorstep. In 1835 John was appointed commissioner's 
clerk and held the office three years. Afterward he was elected 
county treasurer and served three years. In 1846 they re- 
moved to Knoxville, 111. Rebecca died at Orange, Knox Co., 
111., May 16, 1854. After her death Mr. Hale married Agnes 
McMurray and had two children, John E. Hale, Jr., born in 
Knoxville, 111., Dec. 11, 1858, and Agnes Hale, born April 18, 
1860. Mr. Hale died in Knoxville, July 10, 1862.

destined to make for himself a worthy record. Very early in 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 67 

life he became interested in religious matters and at 13 years 
he was converted and joined the Baptist church. He married 
Oct. 12, 1828, Betsey Perkins, born in Goshen, Conn., Nov. 13, 
1807. His father having died just before, he undertook the 
management of the homestead farm. After three years he ex- 
changed places with his elder brother Abraham (397). He 
lived on Abraham's farm five years. Being in poor health he 
found the care of the farm too much for his strength, so he 
undertook the task of selling merchandise from a wagon. He 
succeeded fairly well but it took him away from his home and 
church so much that he gave it up and moved with his family 
to Canton, Pa., where he kept a dry goods store for about five 
years. During his residence in Canton, he was one of the 
school directors. As such he had been empowered to 
employ a teacher for the winter term of 1839. He wrote to 
George Kriss a ministerial friend living in Homer, N. Y., to 
recommend some young man who possessed qualifications es- 
sential to command the respect and obedience of pupils, as the 
Canton school had previously been taught by inefficient women 
much to their detriment. He recommended Daniel Holmes, of 
Oxford, N. Y., so highly that he was offered a salary far in ad- 
vance of the price paid men teachers, and the same was accept- 
ed. This circumstance created a romance as a result of which 
the Wood family have herewith a history which otherwise 
might never have been written. (See Lois Wood 792 for the 
result of this episode.) In April 1840 financial disaster over- 
took Mr. Wood, brought about by signing notes as an endor- 
ser, which he had to pay. He removed to Saloma, Centre Co. 
Pa., and staid one year, then lived one year at Lock Haven, 
Pa., then they returned to Smithfield, and finally settled on the 
farm east of the Asahel Scott place. During all the years after 
he reached manhood he had given much of his time to preach- 
ing or exhorting as it might perhaps be more properly called. 
He was one of the founders of the Disciple Church and for 
many years the pastor. His brother Joel says : "He preached 
with much acceptance, and his ability in exhortation was equal- 
ed by few if any of my acquaintances." His health had always 
been delicate, and he fell a victim to the ravages of consump- 
tion, which ended his life July 13, 1852. He is buried in Smith- 
field. His widow died Jan. 21, 1877, of pneumonia, at the 
Perkins homestead in Smithfield.

out to E. S. Tracy, who continued it for more than half a cen-

Leroy, where he engaged in the same line of business till 1844, 
when he again sold out and traveled with his family by wagon, 
to Belvidere, 111., consuming 36 days in making the journey. 
His wife and only son died within ten days after they reached

Joel Wood, ( Samuel- > » , Nathan ^ ^ ^ Abraham" ' , Abra-

Aug. 10. 1834, to Hannah Rockwell, daughter Samuel Rock- 
well and Betsey Granteer, born Canton, Apr. 23, 1814. She 
died May 23, 1857. Before attempting to give an account of 
Joel Wood's life, we desire to state that he is the most noted 
personage in this book at the present writing being the oldest 
living representative of the William Wood clan, and he also 
enjoys the distinction of having been the first person named 
Wood, who was born in the town, East Smithfield. 

Joel Wood was a child on the old homestead, and grew to 
manhood there. As a boy he remembers the "sugar bush," 
which was his delight, and a considerable source of revenue to 
the family. He remembers all the bear stories, and how it was 
unsafe for the children to go alone to school, because of them, 
and other wild beasts. It is very interesting to listen to his 
stories about the "singing school" and the "apple-paring bees" 
and the "corn-husking frolic" which were the popular amuse- 
ments in th(;se early days. After his marriage at the age of 
24, he settled first on a piece of wild land in Troy township, 
and built a house. Not satisfied however, they soon sold it 
and bought a more improved farm near Alba. This was in 




JOEL WOOD- 402. 



SEVENTH GENERATION. 69 

1835. In the month of May he met with an accident, splitting: 
his foot open, which laid him up for a time. They remained 
here with little financial success, except the cultivation of six 
fine boys, till 1846, when they sold out and in company with 
John E. Hale and family, started westward, traveling overland 
by wagons. They journeyed on till they came to a very prom- 
ising spot on the prairie about 25 miles northwest of Chicago, 
in Cook county,, where they set themselves down in the unculti- 
vated wild land. Joel bought a quarter section, 80 acres, of 
government prairie at $1.25 per acre. The first year he worked 
an adjoining farm then somewhat improved, on shares, from 
which enough was secured to keep the wolf from the door, 
while breaking his own prairie land. The next year he raised 
a crop of wheat, and cut it with the first McCormick reaper 
ever used in Cook county, and his was the first crop the reaper 
had ever cut. In the meantime he had built a primitive cabin 
on their own soil and was correspondingly happy. A little 
later they added forty acres more prairie. In 1850 a railroad 
to be called the "Illinois & Wisconsin" was surveyed across 
the farm, but it failed of construction. It was re-organized as the 
Chicago & Northwestern, and in 1852, grading was going on. 
In 1853 he got the contract of constructing 4000 yards of em- 
bankment at 10 cents per yard. This work enabled him to 
clear his place from debt, and in the fall after completing it he 
returned to the east with his wife for a short visit. Returning 
soon he bought another 80 acre section along the line of the 
railroad, and solicited the location of a station on this tract, 
which was finally accomplished at a cost of $2,000. He then 
surveyed, plotted and recorded the village of Palatine. He 
built a depot for the R. R. Co. for which they paid him $1,060, 
also a store for rent. He donated two acres to the town for a 
cemetery, two lots to the Methodist Episcopal Society for a 
church and parsonage ; a large school house site ; four 
lots to the Christian Church for building and parsonage : 
to Elder Mullin, the pastor, five acres for a home ; 
to Dr. Keeler a lot; to his brother, Darius (407) a lot; to 
Sarah Brookins a lot ; to B. A. Bailey a site for a steam grist 
mill ; and so began, or was created on paper the town founded 
by Joel Wood which soon became a town in reality. In 1857 a 
school house had been built, also a Methodist church, and a 
lively little town is springing up. Prosperity through severe 
toil had attended the efforts of our founder, but in this year 
begins a sad chapter in his life. His wife is severely attacked 
with congestion of the lungs, which quickly ends her life May 
23, 1857, and he makes his first contribution to the beautiful 
cemetery he had given to the town. In 1860 his promising son, 
Ezra, is a victim of dropsy. Then comes the civil war, and in 



70 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

1861 his eldest son enlists in the 19th Illinois and marches away 
under the first call for volunteers. The next son, Marshall, 
soon after is enrolled, and goes to the front A year later 
Emerson enlists. Then later comes home Marshall with a 
severe wound and ruined constitution, from which he later 
died The next vear Crawford dies a victim of typhoid. In 
1870' wearied with life's hard labor and crushed under con- 
tinued bereavements, he sells his village property and farm and 
jroes to Kansas. He settled first in Topeka, building a house, 
which he rents, and moves to Grantville, seven miles east and 
started a grocery store. Having had no experience in handhng 
merchandise for profit, the venture was a failure, so in 1872 he 
quit and moved to Lyon Co., near Emporia, where he bought 
a farm. In April, 1874. he was married a second time at Reece, 
Kan., to Mrs. Elizabeth Campbell (nee Elizabeth Norvell). 

In this year came the great grasshopper plague which de- 
vasted almost the whole state and made farming poor business 
just then. They remained on the farm till June, 1888, when 
they removed to California, where they remained three years, 
buying land and planting a fruit orchard. This was near El- 

mira, Cal. 

Here they worked hard, but had many privileges m the 
church and made many friends, but his wife's health began to 
fail, and his business called him back to Kansas, so in 1891 
they came back and stopped with Harmon Shepard, in Green- 
wood Co. A year later they went to stay with his wife's 
daughter in Washington Co., Ky. After a time they went 
back to Mr. Shepard's, where his wife died of dropsy, Jan. 10, 
1896, aged 69. Since that time his life has been a lonely wait- 
ing for the end to come. He goes back and forth to Elmira, 
Cal., to visit his daughter's family, then to Thurman, Kan., 
where his daughter Emma lives, and this he calls his home. 

Such is the life history of a good man, who has toiled 
harder than most men, and yet after having reached four score 
and ten, he is hale and hearty and bids fair to reach the cen- 
tury mark. In his later years he has traveled considerable, 
and being naturally a man of observation he possesses a fund 
of information which is surprising in one of his years. He 
visited the old home a short time ago and was present at the 
reunion of the Smithfield branch held Sept. 4, 1900, on the spot 
where he was born (see appendix). The picture we present is 
taken from a photograph taken at that time. He hardly looks 
to be ninety years old, at least when one thinks of the years of 
hard labor and privation which he has passed through. The 
writer can look back forty years and see him an old man then. 
Kor twenty of these years he has hardly changed. He reads 
without glasses and writes a very legible hand still. To him

we are indebted for much of the information pertaining- to his 
family, and as a fitting close to this slight tribute we quote his 
own expressive words, written in giving the history of his sister 
Miriam, 403: "Greatly missing her frequent and affectionate 
letters, and the loss of my loved companion and my dear chil- 
dren, with prospect of decline of mind and person, having seen 
my early comrades fall by the way, what wonder that I should 
often 

"Think of the years that forever have fled, 

Of follies by others forgot, 
Of joys that are vanished and hopes that are dead, 

Of friendships that were, and are not. 
Or sigh for the touch of a vanished hand, 
And the sound of a voice that is still."

Miriam Wood, {Samuel"^^^ , Nathan^^^ Abrahain}\

June 10, 1832, Allen Hale, born in Warren, R. I., Oct. 5, 1808, 
a brother of John, 396, and Benjamin, 401. They first settled on 
his father's place in Smithfield. They then went to Pompey, 
N. Y., from there to Palatine, 111., in 1861, and the next year 
to Abingdon, 111. The same year they returned to Smithfield 
and bought back the old place. The spirit of change or adven- 
ture seemed to possess Uncle Allen, and he could not long 
remain content in one place, so in 1864 they again sold the 
homestead and went back to Abingdon, 111., where he died Jan. 
29, 1866. The widow returned with her family to Smithfield. 
After her son Ellery's marriage, in 1877, she made his home 
her place of abode till her death. In the fall of 1892 she came 
to Elmira and visited her niece Lois, 792, at the writer's home. 
From there she went to Canton, Pa., to visit her son Emory. 
While there she was suddenly stricken with paralysis and after 



-J-) WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

an illness of two weeks died Nov. 13, 1892 She was buned^n 
Smithfield. Allen was buried in Knoxville 111., beside his 
brother John. The picture herewith presented is from a photo- 
Trr-inh fiken a few years before her death. It is a perfect like- 
ness and one can see in it the sweet serenity which character- 
ized her whole life. Trials she had many and some sad chap- 
ters, but through it all she was the same dear good woman, 
never complaining, always content with her lot. Her last years 
were pleasant and happy. In 1828 there was a great revival in 
Smithfield and she was the first person baptized. She devel- 
oped into an earnest, cheerful and happy christian, a helpful

families, they started for the then pioneer state of Illinois in 
covered wagons. Two months were consumed in the journey. 
They settled finally on Bonus Prairie, seventy miles west of 
Chicago. While living here the writer remembers visiting them 
in May, 1863. At that time they lived in a small but comfort- 
able log house surrounded by a splendid prairie farm. His 
wife died here Nov. 7, 1864. After her death he left Bonus 
Prairie and went to Southwestern Missouri. Later he removed 
to the northwest corner of the state and died there in 1880.

Darius Bullock Wood, {Saimiel^^^, Nathan^^^, Abra- 
ham"^ , Abraham.^ , Michael-,) born Smithfield, March 29, 1820. 
Married, April 28, 1851, Jane Eliza Wilson, daughter Edward 
Wilson. She died at Palatine, 111., Feb. 10, 1872. He was 
married again, April 29, 1873, to Sarah A. Sayles, daughter 
Sumner Sayles. She died in Palatine, March 25, 1899. 

Darius was the last child born in the large family of Sam- 
uel Wood. His father died when he was eight years old. The 
home was kept up and he remained with his mother till he was 
eighteen, when he went to Leroy, and was a clerk in Benjamin 
Hale's store for two years. In 1841 he went to Lock Haven, 
Pa., with his brother Barnard for a year. He then attended 
the Athens academy and later a school in Smithfield taught by 
Daniel Holmes, 799. Afterward he taught school in Columbia 
and then in Mill Hall. In the summer of 1844 he worked for 
Mr. Hayden on a farm near Sayre, Pa. In May, 1846, he 
started for the great west by way of the Chemung Canal from 
Elmira and Erie Canal to Buffalo, thence to Chicago and to 
Bonus Prairie, where he visited his sister Elizabeth, 404, for a 
little time. He then started out to inspect the country and 
secure work. He hired out for three months to a farmer in 
Waukesha Co., Wis., and then returned to Bonus. The succeed- 
ing two winters he taught school in Belvidere, 111. During 
that time his brother Joel, 402, located temporarily near Belvi- 
dere. They heard that Smith Castle, of Smithfield, lived on 
the prairie about twenty-four miles from Chicago, and in Feb., 
1847, they started out to visit them and look at the government 
land near them, which was reported to be very fine. Darius 
got a week's vacation from his school and he and Joel started 
out for the fifty-mile tramp through six inches of snow, Their 
trip was attended with much discomfort, but they decided to 
buy some vacant land. They did so, and the story is told in 
Joel's history of the village of Palatine, which sprung up on this 
tract. In Oct., 1848, he returned to Smithfield for a visit and 
spent the winter, returning to Illinois in the spring. The suc-

ceeding two years he worked at farming during the summer 
and taught school in the winter months. During this time he 
did the hardest work of his life. He broke up twenty acres of 
prairie farm and fenced in the entire plot of eighty acres. In 
1851, he was married. In Nov., 1858, a series of revival meet- 
ings was held in Palatine and his wife was the first convert. 
She joined the Disciple church. Darius had always been a 
member of the Baptist church, but at this time he went with his 
wife to her chosen church. They continued to live on their 
farm till 1863, when on account of poor health it was sold, and 
he opened a general store in the town of Palatine. For thirty- 
two years he did a successful business in the store. During ten 
years of this time he was postmaster. He was also treasurer 
of the school funds of the town for twenty-eight years. In 1872 
came a chapter of sorrow, and in the space of five weeks he 
was called upon to mourn first the loss of his son Howard, a 
few days after his wife, and then his daughter Florence, leaving 
only one child, Grace, to comfort him in his sore bereavement. 
In 1873 he was again married and his second wife passed away 
a year ago. He closed out his mercantile business in 1896 and 
converted the store into a dwelling and lived there till his wife's 
death, when he left Palatine, going to Elgin to live with his 
daughter, Mrs. Castle, where he now is. His picture, from a 
recent photograph, shows a handsome, well-preserved man of 
eighty. It is not necessary to say anything in addition. A 
look at his placid face tells the story of manhood and goodness 
which is truly pictured there. He and Joel are the only survi- 
vors of this family. These two and Aunt Miriam Hale have 
been associated in so great a part of the writer's life that it 
would be a delight to write a personal tribute to each, but were 
this carried out it would weave into this history much of per- 
sonality which to the greater number of readers would not be 
of direct interest, so we refrain. Investigation has convinced 
the writer that the Wood family as a whole will justly admit of 
all the pride which any descendant may cherish, so of dear 
Uncle Darius it is only needful in closing this sketch to say that 
he has always been a true, faithful and good man and christian, 
and the world has been made better because of his having lived 
in it.

lish a biographical sketch of his life, read before the Torrey . 
Botanical club of Columbia College, by Dr. O. R. Willis, prin- 
cipal of Alexander Institute, which gives in detail the wonder- 
ful history of this most learned man (see appendix). We are 
also glad to be able to present herewith his portrait. Without 
doubt he contributed as much as, or perhaps more, than any 
other man to the botanical knowledge of this country, and it is 
a noticeable fact that his children have been prominent in an- 
other way.

a boot and shoe store at 298 Central street, his son Charles 
beinir a partner in the business. Two of the children died in 
infancy and the son has just passed away, leaving the parents 
alone in their old age. Mr. Wood has been one of Gardner's 
most respected citizens, doing much credit to the name he 
bears. It was our pleasure to meet him at his home, and he 
became greatly interested in the work of completing the family 
history, toward which he has contributed much valuable material.

Adams, daughter George Adams and Arvilla Stevens, born 
ICnosburg, Oct. 31, 1841. Since marriage they have lived 
on the old homestead, which was handed down to him from his 
father. The house they live in was built in 1795 by Ahijah and 
has remained in the family ever since. It practically appears 
now as it did a century ago, with minor changes. Theodore 
has been a practical and successful farmer, as well as a valued 
citizen of Westminster, deeply interested in public affairs, and a 
pillar of the church. He has served on the board of education 
;uid for several years on the board of selectmen. There have 
been many farmers in the Wood family, but few if any have 
been more successful than he. His health has always been 
rugged until very recently. September 4, 1890, Theodore and 
his wife attended the fourth quinquennial reunion of the Smith- 
field branch, descended from Samuel, and up to the time this 
work was begun no other member of the Westminster or Con- 
cord branches was known, or had ever been seen, by any of 
the Smithfield descendants. Naturally both took a deep inter- 
est in the compiler's task and have rendered much valuable 
assistance, for which we are deeply grateful, and every member 
of the family should echo the sentiment.

firm of " Wheeler, Wood & Co." He again sold out, returned 
south and again started a wholesale grocery house in New 
Orleans, doing an extensive business with California via Cape 
Horn, going to San Francisco himself in 1850. There for 
twenty years he was engaged in various enterprises of magni- 
tude, mining, banking, real estate, &c., employing millions of 
capital, some of which he went personally to England to 
secure. Meeting with reverses he left the coast in 1869 and 
located at Jamestown. He was employed in manufacturing for 
a time, but lost his eyesight in 1880 and was forced to retire

dauj^hter Zachariah Milliken and Annie Norton Butler, born 
Farminirton, Me., Aug. 27, 1827. 

vSamuel spent his early years on his father's farm. When 
20 years old he attended two terms at the Westminster Acad- 
emy, and earned the money for so doing by chopping wood. 
He then was employed in Goodnow's shoe factory at Prince- 
ton. In Aug. 1848 he embarked in business on his own ac- 
count at Hubbardston, in firm of Heywood & Warren. At the 
end of three years he bought out the business and conducted it 
successfully till 1855, when he removed to Worcester and be- 
came a partner of his first employer E. A. Goodnow, under 
firm name Goodnow & Heywood, doing a large wholesale and 
retail business in boots and shoes. The next year he took the 
retail department alone and conducted it successfully till 1864, 
when he began the manufacture of boots and shoes, which he 
still continues. In 1879 he built a large well equipped factory 
which has ever since been crowded with business. Since 1880 
it has been devoted almost exclusively to the manufacture of 
the fine grades only, of the "Heywood shoe," which to-day is 
popular the world over. In 1884 the business was incorpora- 
ted and Samuel made president, which office he still holds. His 
sons have also been connected with the business. While his 
business life throughout has been eminently successful, his 
public life has also been marked. In 1859, four years after 
coming to Worcester, he was elected a member of the Common 
Council. In 1860 and 1861 member of the Board of Alderman. 
In 187.1-4 he was again a member of the Common Council and 
in 1874 its president. In 1875 he was elected to the Mass. 
House of Representatives, and was twice re-elected. In 1879 
he was appointed a trustee of the State Industrial School at 
Lancaster, and the State Reform school at Westboro. He held

these positions for many years and rendered the state valuable 
service in connection therewith. He was elected a director of 
the Central National Bank of Worcester in 1865, and also a 
trustee of the People's Savings Bank, becoming president of 
the latter in 1884, and still holds these offices. He has been a 
member of the Plymouth Congregational church since its or- 
ganization, and has done much for its material support and 
guidance. As a man of principle and good moral influence 
among his followers, he stands charmingly successful. Much 
might be said in addition. Let a look at his portrait presented 
herewith suffice. See in it all the good things noted and much 
more equally true. A successful business man, prominent in 
charity and all good works, and a worthy scion of a noble race.

Merit Wood, ( Moses'- ■' « , Samue/'' ^ « , A^af/ia?i ''\ Abra-

ried, May 27, 1841, Abigail Kingsley, daughter Isaiah Kings- 
ley and Arethusa Fuller, born Smithfield, Feb. 8, 1816. They 
lived in the old red house (the homestead) for about three 
years and then went to the Kingsley homestead, took the farm 
and cared for her parents as long as they lived. The farm was 
turned over to Collin and Francis in 1871. Isaiah died June 
26, 1863. His wife died May 17, 1873. The house in which 
they had lived burned March 9, 1880. Francis rebuilt it and 
moved into the new house Sept. 21, 1880. Merit spent consid- 
erable time in travel, going west and visiting the friends. In 
1886 the parents went to live with Pleaides, where he died Nov. 
18, 1887. His widow lived the remainder of her life with the 
daughter, and in her later years lost her mind, becoming a great 
care. She was patiently and lovingly attended, finally passing 
away Feb. 4, 1899. Merit Wood was one of Smithfield's 
staunchest citizens. Never a public office-holder, but always a 
leader in all good things. His life was devoted to his family, 
his friends and the church. He joined the church in 1838 and 
was always one of its strong pillars. For years he stood pledged 
to pay one-fourth of any amount the church saw fit to expend. 
( See church history in Appendix. ) He was a strict disciplin- 
arian in his family, but just and merciful in his government, and 
the family he reared, all of whom are living and now represent 
bone and sinew in Smithfield and elsewhere, testify in their 
high character to the wisdom of his family life. He was suc- 
cessful as a farmer and accumulated considerable wealth, but 
his deep love for all his people led him into confidences which 



126 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

were sadly betrayed by many who accepted his gracious loans, 
and losses experienced in his later years unbalanced his 
mind so that his last year was one of sadness to the loved ones 
around him. When he died the citizens gave evidence of their 
esteem and sorrow by turning out en masse to pay a last trib- 
ute of respect, so that his funeral was the largest ever held in 
Smithfield. The writer hereof was deprived of a father just at 
the gate of manhood, and this good man was like unto a father 
and we feel that we owe much to the good fatherly advice given 
by him, not forgetting that we were also one whose early 
financial assistance came from him, and so he was a fatherly 
friend to any who would listen to him. His picture tells the 
story of his life ; placid yet firm, earnest yet loving, resolute 
yet true. What a beautiful face. For thirty years we knew 
and loved that face and it was always the same. For nearly 
twenty years we sought him when in trouble of any kind, and 
never came away empty, either in soul or purse. This 
must have been the experience of all who had the privilege of 
knowing him as we did. Heaven was made richer and earth 
much poorer when he passed to his just reward. His presence 
is yet keenly missed in the places he was wont to fill. 

Abigail, his wife, was a quiet woman, always filling the place 
her motherhood required with cheerfulness and was indeed a 
helpmate. She joined the Congregational Church in 1839 and 
worshipped there till Dec. 22, 1876, when she joined the Dis- 
ciple Church.

Married at Troy, Pa., Feb. 21, 1845, by Rev. S. E. Shepard, to 
Olive Amanda Taylor, daughter Allen Taylor and Olive 
Steevens, born Troy, Pa., March 18, 1825. The first year after 
they spent in LeRaysville, Pa., with Lois (799) . They then went 
to Troy and lived with her parents for a few months. They 
then came back to Smithfield and lived in the "little red house" 
near the homestead for a long time, later moving into the 
homestead and assuming the care of the parents till father 
Moses died, the mother then going to live with Lois. Rich- 
ardson managed the farm successfully and bid fair to enjoy a 
long life of usefulness, when suddenly he was stricken with 
pneumonia and died in the very infancy of his prime, March 1, 
1865. The few years he did live were years of great useful- 
ness. He was the most intimate friend and companion of the 
writer's father, and many were the youthful frolics enjoyed by 
him with his cousins while the parents were deeply engrossed 
in more -mature companionship. His picture is copied from a 
portrait of the early period, but it clearly portrays the inherent 
characteristics of the Wood race. His widow married (2) May 
29, 1869, Elijah Selden Tracy, a prominent citizen of Smith- 
field. He died in 1888, and the widow now lives with her 
eldest daughter, on the old homestead.

She died in Milwaukee, Wis., March 20, 1887, aged 50. Walter 
left Smithfield, emigrating to the west, about 1855. In 1863 he 
was running a hotel out on the prairie some miles from Chi- 
cago, where the writer distinctly remembers having rnade a 
visit as a boy and saw a herd of wild buffalo on the plains not 
far away. The ground occupied by this hotel is now covered 
by the city, which has grown out even beyond it. He remained 
here a short time only and then went back to Palatine. Later 
he went to Horicon, Wis. About 1870 he took up a govern- 
ment tract of 160 acres near Elderon, Marathon Co., Wis., 
where he toiled hard for many years, enduring untold priva- 
tions, until he became helpless from rheumatism. He was 
finally (jbliged to leave the farm and went to live with his 
daughter, Addie Burns, in Milwaukee, Wis. When they re- 
moved to Scranton, Pa., in 1898, he went with them, where he 
now is. He has been confined to his room for a year and, 
while he has been a constant suiiEerer for years, this year has 
been a crucical one which is likely soon to terminate fatally. 
His life has been tinctured with much mental sadness and 
physical ])ain, but through it all his christian fortitude and un- 
wavering resignation mark him as a man of deep and beautiful 
christian character.

Willard Farnsworth and Lucinda Swain, born Smithfield, May 
11, 1837. Her father was born in Halifax, Vt., and her mother 
in Chemung, N. Y. In 1857 they left Smithfield, traveling in a 
covered wagon westward. They located at Rockford, 111., 
where they remained till the fall of 1858, when they went to 
Palatine, 111. For some years he supplied the new railroad 
then building with wood, and cultivated a strawberry patch, 
sending his fruit to Chicago. In 1870 they sold out and went 
to Burlingame, Kan., and bought a farm two and a half miles 
from the town. Here they have since lived. They have a fine 
farm and a comfortable home. The children have all settled in 
life and now they live alone on the farm and are still working 
hard, evidently to keep up their spirits in the absence of the 
children. Their lives are necessarily quiet, as the house is so 
far removed from the town, but they are numbered among the 
valued citizens of that community. Like every other member 
of the family he possesses the faith of the just and his life his- 
tory is one of earnest christian work and success. At present 
he and Walter are the only survivors of the family, and soon 
he alone will represent them, as up to this time he has always 
been in the best of health.

June 3, 1890. Willard spent his entire life at the homestead, 
his father taking possession when he was 6 months old. When 
about fifteen his father's health failed and much of the care of 
the farm fell on his young shoulders. At the death of his fath- 
er he assumed the management of affairs. He kept it up and 
improved it greatly. In 1859 he erected the brick house on 
the premises now occupied by his son. The brick was made 
on the farm. Among his earliest recollections was the re- 
shingling of the barn built by his grandfather in 1811. 
The same shingles after over 65 years still cover the 
roof. He joined the Baptist church when fifteen years old, and 
when the rest of the Wood family split off he with his father 
remained. He was a faithful and earnest worker. In 1874 the 
church edifice was burned, and he contributed the brick from 
his own yard for building a new church. He served as deacon 
the last thirty-five years of his life. He was deeply interested 
in the familv affairs and did much to make the Wood reunions

ter Rev. John N. Lewis and Sarah A. Edwards, born Geneseo, 
N. v., April 11, 1839. He entered New York University in 
1863. In 1864 he went out under the U. S. Sanitary Commis- 
sion and was given charge of the station of the Second army 
corps, near Fortress Monroe, where he became distinguished 
for his devotion to the sick and wounded. At the close of the 
war he returned to the university and graduated with honor in 
1868. He entered the Astor Library. An address delivered 
by Rev. Dr. Jessup of the Syrian mission led him to devote 
himself to that work. After completing a theological course 
at the Union Seminary in New York, having in the meantime 
retained his position in the Library, he was married as above 
noted, and embarked at once for Syria. His first settlement 
was at Zahleh, from which he was transferred to the head of 
the academy at Abeih, where he died July 20, 1878. His widow 
and daughter returned to New York, where they now reside at 
148 East 18th street. Mrs. Wood is in the employ of the

She was a talented girl. The last school she attended was

She was a governess in private families for two years. Soon 
after returning to her father's home, in New York, in 1871, she 
was made teacher of music in the public schools. She filled 
this position acceptably for five years, and then (1876) got a 
leave of absence to visit her brother in Abeih, Syria, for a year. 
During this visit she met the man she afterwards married. Re- 
turning to New York she resumed her position in 1877 and 
held it till 1882, when she went to Jaffa, Syria, and was mar- 
ried. Kaiser (ihoreyeb received his education at the Syrian 
Protestant college in Beirut, under the eye of Dr. Bliss (see

ward graduated from the medical school established and con-

Feb. 17, 1833. Mary was naturally gifted with unusual musical 
talent, a judicious cultivation and use of which has enabled her 
to attain praiseworthy distinction in the musical world. She 
studied for twelve years in Boston under the most talented in- 
structors, singing meanwhile in some of the leading churches in 
the city. She then spent a year in Europe under instruction of 
old masters in London and Paris. While abroad she achieved 
signal successes at the Crystal Palace and elsewhere, rendering- 
solos and other parts, in some of the masterpieces of the great 
composers, before audiences of thousands of appreciative 
listeners. Since her return, in 1884, she has sung in Boston 
churches, in Handel and Haydn's oratorios, for Thomas' 
orchestra and in opera companies east and west. She is a 
great favorite at Saratoga. She was one of the quartette 
selected to sing at the funeral of General U. S. Grant on Mt. 
McGregor, in 1885. She has not been singing much of late 
years, although her voice still retains its full power and tone. 
She has a large number of pupils, who come from all parts of 
the country. She devotes some portion of her time to teach- 
ing by private instruction. Mr. and Mrs. Whitney reside at 
No. 5 St. Charles street, Boston.

feeble health and now lives with her youngest daughter. This 
is a remarkable family. They have had ten children — five sons 
and five daughters — all living and married. Two hours travel 
will bring them all together, as none have settled over fifty 
miles away. For over fifteen years they have had an annual 
reunion. The family now numbers in the three generations 
over fifty souls. They meet in the town hall. They are a very 
musical family and these gatherings are full of sweet music. 
Neither tobacco or alcoholic liquors are indulged in by a single 
member of this numerous family. Surely a fine record.

where they are now living. They still own and conduct the

been an active worker in church affairs, practically supplying 
the place made vacant by the death of his father. He was 
elected an Elder Apr. 13, 1879 and still serves in that capacity. 
To him is due the principal share of success in the family re- 
unions, as he has been the one faithful worker upon whom the 
largest burden of work has fallen, as secretary of the organiza- 
tion since its development. To-day he is one of Smithfield's 
representative citizens and much respected in the community.

vSept. 26, 1848. Married, Nov. 2, 1871, in Alba, Pa., at the 
home of Charles G. Manley, by Rev. E. S. Watson, to Char- 
lotte Steevens, daughter Zerah Beach Steevens and Thirza 
Allison. He spent his early yeai's in study, beginning in 
the public schools of Canton, Pa., where his parents then 
lived, when eight years of age. At ten he took up the study 
of Latin and a year later Greek, under his father's tuition. In 
1862, at the age of fourteen, he went to a private school in 
Troy, taught by Frederick Corss. The next two years were 
spent at The Susquehanna Collegiate Institute, in Towanda, at 
that time the finest boarding school in northern Pennsylvania. 
In Sept., 1864, he entered the advanced class of Cortland Acad- 
emy, at Homer, N. Y., completing the preparatory course in 




CLAYTON WOOD HOLMES.- 1489. 



NINTH GENERATION. 205 

June, 1865. In Sept., 1865, he entered Lafayette College, at 
Easton, Pa., having passed an entrance examination which 
would have permitted his entering the Sophomore class, but by 
his father's direction he joined the Freshman class of 1869, and 
took the entire classical course. He received the degree A. B. 
on completion of the course in 1869, followed by A. M. in 1872. 
He immediately took up the study of medicine. In the fall of 
1869 he entered the medical department of the University of 
Pennsylvania, at Philadelphia, and took one full course of lec- 
tures. Finding it necessary to do something which w^ould at 
once produce an income he left the University at the end of the 
first year and entered the drug store of C. S. & F. Ingraham, 
in Elmira, N. Y., in April, 1870, having had previous practical 
experience in that line, and a thorough theoretical knowledge 
of chemistry. He remained with them till Jan. 1, 1871, when 
he accepted the position of manager of the drug store of T. J. 
Good, in Wilkes-Barre, Pa. While here he was married and 
established housekeeping, his mother coming to live with him. 
July 1, 1872, he resigned his position and at once made arrange- 
ments to establish himself in business on his own account. 
Contracts were made for a store to be fitted up, and the same 
was crowded to completion, so that Aug. 28th following he 
opened a drug store at 277 South Main street, Wilkes-Barre, 
receiving a most generous patronage from the very first. This 
store was successfully conducted for about five years. In Jan- 
uary, 1877, he sold out and went back to Elmira, where he 
bought a half interest in a retail drug store on Water street. 
This business was gradually merged into a wholesale and man- 
ufacturing business. About this time he began the manufacture 
of a specialty which later became his regular business. In 1881 
the retail store was closed out and the business converted into 
an exclusively wholesale drug house and a building on Lake 
street w^as occupied. The branch of manufacturing was enlarged 
greatly and men sent out on the road. The business pros- 
pered until May 24, 1885, when the entire stock was destroyed 
by fire, resulting in the loss of all his accumulated capital. 
The firm was dissolved by this misfortune, and after clearing 
up the wreck he established a manufacturing business on his 
own account and made a general line of pharmaceutical prepar- 
ations. Not having sufficient capital to carry on such a busi- 
ness successfully, he sold out the general line in 1888 and turned 
his attention to the introduction of " Holmes Fragrant Fros- 
tilla" on the general market, a kind friend having agreed to 
back up the enterprise till it could gain a foothold. A large 
amount of money was expended in advertising by the distribu- 
tion of samples, and to him is due the credit, or otherwise, of 
being the first person to advertise the entire United States in 



206 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

this manner, a style of work which was so successful that every 
one adopted it later on, and to-day the country is flooded with 
samples. This work was immediately successful, and from it 
a business has grown to extensive proportions to-day, covering 
the entire United States and extending to many other countries 
and is regularly conducted in Canada and England. In 1893 a 
large factory was built which is devoted entirely to the busi- 
ness. January 1, 1889, he became manager of the Elmira 
Advertiser and conducted this large printing and binding estab- 
lishment, in addition to his own business, till January, 1895, 
when, on account of ill health, he gave it up. In the summer 
of 1896 he organized the Hygeia Refrigerating Co., of Elmira, 
planned and erected an extensive plant for the manufacture of 
artificial ice, and a large warehouse to be devoted to cold 
storage. The company was incorporated and he became its 
president, which oiifice he still holds, his son-in-law being vice- 
president and general manager. He is a life member of the 
American Pharmaceutical Association, having joined in 1873. 
He was one of the organizers of the New York State Pharma- 
ceutical Association and its secretary for seventeen consecutive 
years. He has been a member of the First Baptist Church of 
Elmira for twenty-three years and for twelve years has been 
treasurer. He was a member of the Elmira City Council for 
two terms, 1884-6. He is president of the Elmira Co-opera- 
tive Savings and Loan Association, of which he was one of the 
founders. He is one of the oldest members of the board of 
directors of the Chemung Valley Mutual Loan Association, 
having served eighteen consecutive years. He is a member of 
the military order of the Loyal Legion, The Sons of the Amer- 
ican Revolution, and numerous other societies. During the 
last five years he and his wife have traveled extensively for 
health and recreation. The summer of 1900, beginning May 1, 
was given over entirely to the making up of this book, and 
when completed it will have involved ten months solid work of 
from six to ten hours every week day, beside the expenditure 
of a sum of money by no means small in its proportions, which 
is given as a monument to the memory of his mother, more 
beneficial in its results and decidedly more valuable to poster- 
ity than any marble pillar, which might have cost more but 
would have contributed nothing except the cold comfort of per- 
sonal satisfaction. To those who are connected by ties of blood 
to this excellent race we here extend our warmest greeting of 
love, hoping that our work may contribute some knowledge of 
ancestry if not solid comfort to those who read its pages. 

The home of the writer is located at 410 West Gray street, 
Elmira, N. Y., and has been since 1880, and so long as life 
lasts we expect to remain there, and any member of the

The Ancestor. 



William Wood, the ancestor of the Wood clan, whose names 
are recorded in this book, was born in England in 1582, but 
where is tmknown. He began his life during the reign of 
Queen Elizabeth and his early manhood was spent under the 
reign of James I. and Charles I. During the reign of the latter 
monarch the dissensions between the Church of England and 
the Puritans culminated in the expulsion of the Puritans from 
England, obliging them to seek an asylum in a foreign land, 
where they might worship God according to the dictates of 
their own consciences. They first took refuge in Holland and 
after a residence there of twelve years sought and obtained a 
charter to found a colony in the new world. These Puritan 
fathers landed on Plymouth Rock Dec. 21, 1620. Soon others 
came and eighteen years after our ancestor reached these shores. 
It has been supposed by many that our ancestor was the author 
of A^ew England's Prospects. It seems probable that the William 
Wood who did write that book came to America in 1629, set- 
tling first in Salem, and as early as 1830 in Lynn, as is claimed 
by Lewis. He remained there till his return to England, Aug, 
15, 1633, as his book recites, and in 1634 his book was pub- 
lished in London. Shattuck, who would magnify the honor of 
Concord by so respectable a citizen, conjectures that this 
William the author was the same William who came again in 
1638 and settled in Concord. This is hardly possible, because 
had the author returned again so soon he would most certainly 
have gone to Lynn, as the book indicates by his minute descrip- 
tion of Lynn River, that he was most charmed with that locality. 
There is nothing in history to indicate that the author William 
ever returned to America, on the contrary the inference would 
be that he did not, and this is our positive opinion after much 
careful study. We find a record of numerous Williams. 
William Wood, a husbandman, aged 27, came in the Hopewell 
in 1835. There was a William Wood in Portsmouth who married 
Martha Earle. We find a William Wood in Marblehead in 
1668 ; one in Ipswich who took the oath of fidelity in 1678 ; 
one in Newton, L. I., in 1640, who may have come from Stam- 
ford, Conn. ; one in Salem, a freeman, in 1670 ; one in Bur- 
lington, N. J., in 1677, and without doubt there were others. 
William Wood was a common name in those days. There must 
have been plenty in England, to send so many to our shores, 
all coming so near together. 

Leaving all other persons by that name and referring to 



260 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

our ancestor, we have endeavored to find out something about 
his early life. The records of the church constituted all the 
records in those early days in England. Those of Matlock, - 
where our ancestor came from, only extend back to 1637, so 
that we are forever barred from a knowledge of the facts except 
as we have them now. The N. E. Historical and Genealogical 
Register, vol. II, page 260, says : " It may be that William is a 
descendant of James Wood, a cornet of dragoons under Crom- 
well. He was a Yorkshire man and finally settled in Ireland in 
the county of Sligo." This is hardly probable. In the church 
records of London we find: "William Wood, of St. Mary, 
White Chappie, Middlesex, waterman, and Margery Harris, of 
same, widow of John Harris, late of same, mariner, at same, 
married, license granted in London, by the bishop, Sept. 17, 
1605." This is not likely to refer to our William. No other 
published record in England gives anything which seems to 
refer to our ancestor. What we know definitely is that our 
William left Matlock, in Derbyshire, in 1638, and came to this 
country, accompanied by his wife Margaret, a son Michael, with 
his wife Mary, a daughter Ruth, unmarried, and a nephew, the 
Hon. Thomas Flint. It is likely that Thomas Flint was mar- 
ried in England and brought his wife with him, as the birth of 
a son is recorded in Concord in 1641. The history of Concord 
gives us little information. It is certain that he came direct to 
Concord and settled there, living all his days in this first home 
of his choice. He was one of the earliest settlers. We append 
herewith copies of his will and an inventory of his estate, copied 
from the original documents now on file in the probate court at 
Cambridge, also the will of Abraham Wood, son of Michael, as 
correlative proof of succession, and absolute proof of the error 
in Concord records, as noted in the first part. In addition other 
documents are given as items of curious interest. The spelling 
of the original documents is carefully preserved.

SAMUEL WOOD. 265 

Samuel Wood (219). 

ANCESTOR OF THE SMITHFIELD BRANCH. 

Samuel Wood was born at Westminster, Jan. 26, 1731. 
His youth was spent at home on the farm. A sketch of his 
life prepared by the historian of the Wood family and read at 
the reunion of the Smithfield branch in 1882 says that he left 
home and went to Vermont about the time of his father's death, 
which occurred June 17, 1777, or soon thereafter, where he 
lived with a man named Darby. We must disag:ree with this 
statement, as Samuel enlisted for service in the Revolutionary 
war at Westminster, Aug. 16, 1777, and several times there- 
after until Oct. 1780, from the same place. (For accurate revo- 
lutionary history see war records, revolutionary section.) So 
that if he did go to Vermont to live with anybody it must have 
been after 1780, or else for a very short time between his en- 
listments, which is hardly probable. In fact the general scope 
of the historical sketch says he returned to Vermont after the 
enlistments, which is not correct, as Samuel returned to West- 
minster and lived there (probably at the homestead) till 1783, 
as is clearly proven by an original deed in our possession, 
which reads : " I, Moses Larnard, of Westminster, in the County 
of Worcester and Commonwealth of Massachusetts Bay, in 
New England, yeoman, for and in consideration of the sum of 
one hundred pounds paid to me in hand before the ensealing 
hereof, well and truly paid by Samuel Wood, of the town and 
county aforesaid, yeoman," &c. This deed conveys to him a 
certain tract of land containing one hundred and four acres, in 
Halifax, Coimty of Windham, Vt., under date May 13, 1783. 
He might have spent some time at Halifax previous to this 
date, but certainly not enough to gain a residence there, as in 
such a case the reading of the deed must have been different. 
At all events he must have gone there very soon after this 
purchase, as less than a year thereafter he married a resident 
of Halifax. He doubtless settled on his farm at once and toiled 
hard. Twenty years thereafter (in 1803) his wife died, having 
borne eleven children. In April, 1804, he bought another farm 
of seventy-three acres from Daniel Baldwin, paying therefor 
five hundred dollars. The succeeding year he married again. 
Early in 1809, for some reason which is not apparent, he sold 
out his property in Halifax. It is probable that farming in 
those days was not productive of large returns, and it may have 
been on this account that he concluded to try his luck in some 
new field, but we are rather of the opinion that it was the 
result of a general desire in those days to mo ve farther west- 
ward. This spirit seems to have permeated the more active 

29 



266 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY, 

minds of some of the family. His father not being content in 
Concord, one of the most beautiful and fertile spots on this 
continent, first tried Stow and then went to Westminster. 
Samuel was not content there, so he went to Halifax, and like 
his father must move on to other fields. The strangest part of 
it to the writer, after having traveled over all this migratory 
territory, is that each of these successive changes brought less 
favorable conditions, and to-day, after a century of change and 
progress, we find Halifax better than Smithfield — Westminster 
much superior to Halifax, and Concord far ahead of either — 
and this comparison takes into account only the general char- 
acter of the farming territory and conditions. But Samuel was 
uneasy, and so early in the spring of 1809 he started out on a 
voyage of discovery, taking with him his three eldest sons, 
Moses, Ezra and Jonathan. Whether they had a particular 
objective point in view when they started or not is unknown, 
but quite probable, as they passed the beautiful valley of the 
Hudson, about which he must have known something, as his 
last enlistment took him into the most fertile part of New York 
state. They journeyed on till they came to the tavern of John 
Shepard, three miles above the village of Athens, where they 
stopped for the night. Here they learned of a tract of land 
owned by the landlord, twelve miles away. Its advantages 
were set forth so attractively that they consented to go with 
Mr, Shepard to see it. After looking it over a bargain was 
concluded and the following contract entered into : 

Memorandum of an Agreement between John Shepard, of the Town- 
ship of Tioga, County of Lycoming, State of Pennsylvania, of the first 
part, and Samuel Wood, of Halifax, County of Windham, and State of 
Vermont, of the second part, 

Witnesseth. That the party of the first part doth agree to procure a 
deed from Doct. Robert H. Rose, agent for the Bingham Estate, for three 
hundred and sixty acres of land of the two south lots laid out for Phineas 
Pierce and others, in the township of Smithfield, for which the party of 
the second part agrees to pay to the party of the first part as follows, viz. : 
One hvmdred and sixty-six and two-thirds bushels of wheat by the last 
day of Feb'y, A. D.. 1810, and one hundred and sixty-vsix and two-thirds 
bushels wheat by the last day of Feb'y, 1811, and one hundred and sixty- 
six and two-thirds of wheat by the last day of February. 1812, to be deliv- 
ered between the mouth of Sugar Creek and Tioga Pomt, also one hun- 
dred and seventeen dollars, with interest from date, in two years from 
the date of this, and further sum of one hundred and seventeen dollars, 
with interest from date, in tliree years from date, and further sum of one 
hundred and seventeen dollars with interest from date, in four years from 
date, and further agree to make immediate settlement on said land. 

In witness whereof we have hereunto set our hands and seals, this 
22d day of May, A. D., 1809.

As soon as this agreement was made he left his three boys 
to begin work on this wilderness farm and started back after 
his family. He landed, after many trials and vicissitudes, near 
Milan, on the river, Sept. 3, 1809. The next day, leaving 
his wife and the young children at a farm house, he, with the 
three older boys, who had come to meet him, started with some 
of their goods for the new home. They reached the Asa Allen 
place, then owned by Phineas Pierce, half a mile north of the 
farm, at noon. They stopped and took dinner and in the after- 
noon they cut a road through the forest to the old spring, near 
which they selected the building site. From this occurrence 
on the 4th of September we date the anniversary of the settle- 
ment. A clearing of some four acres had been made by the 
boys during the father's absence, and although late before the 
ground was prepared it was seeded to wheat, which, when har- 
vested the next season, furnished sufficient breadstuff for the 
year. The next year after they came thirty acres were cleared. 
From this fallow they harvested, the second year after their 
arrival, about five hvmdred bushels of wheat, and after this 
time they never suffered for the substantials of life. He was 
so eager to pay his debts that sometimes he would sell himself 
short. The boys used to forestall this by hiding away a few 
barrels for family use until the next harvest. The country was 
literally a howling wilderness all about them, the settlements 
were few and far between. They had to carry all their grain to 
Milltown (ten miles away) on horseback to be ground, and all 
goods were brought from the North (Susquehanna) river by 
teams. They had to struggle hard to make ends meet ; many 
discouragements were encountered ; and indifferent success 
attended their efforts to pay off the indebtedness. 

John Shepard executed a deed for a part of this farm to 
Samuel Wood, June 21, 1813, subject to a bond of $250, 
given Feb. 10, 1812, to trustees of estate of William Bing- 
ham, to be paid, one-fifth ($50) Oct. 1, 1813, and so on each 
year to and including Oct. 1, 1817, with interest. We find 
endorsed on this bond the following payments : Jan. 16, 1815, 
$15.00 ; Jan. 16, 1818, $46.00 ; Feb'y 25, 1818, $38.00 ; Dec. 
12, 1821, $5.00, indicating that he was unable to keep up the 
payments promptly. The trustees of the Bingham estate had, 
under date of Feb. 10, 1812, deeded another portion of the farm 
to him, and herein we note that Smithfield was at that time a 
part of Ontario County (previously Lycoming) which afterward 
became Bradford. The bond cited above belonged to this lat- 
ter deed, and another similar was assumed in connection with 
the Shepard deed. Finally, after a struggle of more than fif- 
teen years the property was not yet cleared of debt, and in the 



268 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

year 1825 a division of the farm was made. One hundred acres 
on the southwest corner of the tract had been previously assigned 
to Moses; a like amount on the north side was now sold to Ezra, 
and sixty acres on the south to Jonathan, they assuming the 
payment of the remaining debt, leaving the old homestead with 
about one hundred acres of land unincumbered. 

The old log house which they had built when they first set- 
tled there gave way to a frame structure in 1823, and in 1859 a 
substantial brick house was erected which is still standing and 
is shown in the background of the group picture of the reunion 
of 1900, which appears herein. Three years later he died, after 
having spent nineteen years in the town of his adoption. The 
first actual settlement had been made in the vicinity July 20, 
1805, by Nehemiah Tracy. Smithfield had been set apart from 
Ulster in 1809, so that Samuel was really one of the first set- 
tlers. Surely he was the first active settler, as we find him the 
progenitor and organizer of the first church within three months 
of his arrival (see church history) of which he served as deacon 
from its organization till his death. He was for many years a 
justice of the peace. He was on the first grand jury list after 
the organization of the county. His life can truly be pro- 
nounced a success. He left a name untarnished and a family 
of children who became strong men and noble women, whose 
influence has ever since directed aiTairs in Smithfield and to- 
day is felt as reflected from his descendants. 



Lois Wood (799) and Daniel Holmes. 

Lois Wood lived her early years at the homestead in Smith- 
field, filling the position of a dutiful child, and as the eldest 
daughter aiding her mother as years crept on, in the care of 
the numerous family. The advantages for securing an educa- 
tion were very meager in those days, and all the children had 
to trudge more than a mile through the snow to attend the dis- 
trict school, during the winter months. In the fall of 1839 an 
incident occurred which changed the whole tenor of her life and 
made this history possible. To Mrs. Christiana Robinson we 
are indebted for the facts of this episode, heretofore unknown 
to the writer. Barnard Wood, her father, was school director 
in Canton, Pa., where they lived, and had been empowered to 
employ a suitable teacher, so he wrote to his ministerial friend, 
George Kriss, an exhorter, living in Homer, N. Y., asking him 
to recommend a young man possessing the qualifications essen- 
tial to command the respect and obedience of scholars, who 
had unfortunately been taught previously by inexperienced and

LOIS WOOD AND DANIEL HOLMES. 269 

incompetent women, much to their injury. Mr. Kriss sent the 
name of Daniel Holmes of Oxford, N. Y., with a recommenda- 
tion so strong that he was offered the position with a salary far 
in advance of the usual price paid men teachers in those days. 
He came and opened his school in the village school house 
which stood on the Towanda road, just above the cemetery, 
Nov. 1, 1839, with 39 scholars. From the first, Barnard liked 
him, and wrote Moses urging him to let Lois come and board 
in his family and attend this excellent school with his children, 
Christiana and Amos. He was persuaded and sent Lois at 
once to Canton, where she lived with her uncle Barnard's family 
and attended the school. The teacher seemed to find the 
atmosphere of this home very agreeable and spent most of the 
evenings in the family, teaching his three pupils more advanced 
studies than were pursued in the school. At the close of the 
term Lois returned home, and the teacher went to Oxford. 
Nothing more is known of his history till in the fall of 1841 he 
came to Smithfield and taught the public school in the school 
house on the hill for four months and afterward a select school 
for two months, and Christiana came to Smithfield to attend 
this school and boarded with her uncle Abraham. Evidently the 
teacher had devoted some of his time to other matters of more 
personal moment, as in August following the close of this 
school he married his faithful pupil. 

Daniel Holmes was born in Oxford, N. Y., where his early 
years were spent. His mother died when he was eight years 
old. His father was poor and unable to assist him to an edu- 
cation, so he worked for his board and spent his time in study, 
even going so far as to study half the night by the light of a 
pine knot. Resolute and determined to succeed he overcame 
all obstacles and succeeded in securing all the education com- 
mon schools and the famous Oxford academy could give. 
While he was teaching the schools we have before alluded to 
he took up the study of medicine. After their marriage, in 
August, 1842, they began keeping house in an extremely 
modest way in a part of a house in Springfield. In the winter 
he taught school again and continued his medical studies under 
the direction of Dr. Wilder. In the winter of 1843 he attended 
a course of medical lectures in the Geneva Medical College, his 
wife going home to stay during his absence. In the spring of 
1844 he returned to Smithfield and probably remained there 
till about Aug. 1, 1845, when they moved to LeRaysville, Brad- 
ford county. Pa., and began the practice of medicine. About 
Sept. 26, 1849, he left for Philadelphia to attend a course of 
lectures in the medical department of the University of Penn- 
sylvania. He graduated at the end of this course and received 



270 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

a diploma with degree M. D. from the University. He then 
returned to LeRaysville and resumed practice April 19, 1850, 
At some time previous to this time, and probably about 1848, 
he formed a partnership with Dr. Rhesus Barnes. This co- 
partnership was dissolved about Oct. 23, 1850, and he continued 
to practice independently. Previous to this partnership he had 
been in company with Geo. W. Northrup about one year, begin- 
ning early in the spring of 1849 and terminating in September 
of same year. Northrup had been a student in his office for 
three years previous, entering April 27, 1846, and attending a 
course of lectures at Geneva Medical College during winter of 
1848-9. J. W. Lyman entered his office Aug. 10, 1850, as a 
student and remained one year. 

Dr. Holmes continued to practice till about Jan. 1, 1852, 
when he sold out his practice to Rhesus Barnes (as the writer 
remembers to have heard it and supposes to be correct) and re- 
moved with his family to Smithfield, where he purchased a small 
farm on the side hill west of the Centre (as the town was called) 
and opened an office, devoting his entire time to the practice of 
his profession, beginning active business about May 8, accord- 
ing to his books of entry. Elijah G. Tracy was registered as a 
student in his office March 1, 1852, and continued under his 
instruction till his graduation. Henry Gerould was registered 
as a student March 1, 1853, but how long he remained the 
records do not show. His nephew, Eli Dewey, was also reg- 
istered as a student March 1, 1853, and to live in his family. 
He soon after had typhoid fever and died. The records also 
show that N. Wood was registered as a student May 1, 1852, 
but he could not have remained for any length of time, as the 
writer has never heard anything of it. April 1, 1856, he opened 
an office in Canton, Pa., and in August following moved his 
family there, renting the farm in the meantime. He soon 
acquired so extensive a practice that it became necessary to 
have assistance. He induced Dr. E. Davison to settle in Can- 
ton and join him, and for some time they were in partnership. 
In 1861, soon after the breaking out of the civil war, there 
arose a great need for competent surgeons. A call was made 
for a competitive examination to be made in Harrisburg. This 
examination was held about September 20, 1861. Dr. Holmes 
attended, and under date of December 8 he was notified that 
the examining board had recommended him to the governor 
for appointment as surgeon (see war record). After having a 
severe experience he returned to Canton in September, 1862, 
with his health shattered. In the spring of 1863 he spent a 
month travelling in the west, but finding his health too feeble 
to resume the hard country practice about Canton, he sold his 



LOIS WOOD AND DANIEL HOLMES. 271 

property there and moved his family back to the farm in Smith- 
field. In the fall of this year he went to Philadelphia, hojiing 
to be benefited by the warmer climate, and devoted his time to 
work in the hospitals, so far as his health permitted. He 
originally intended to settle permanently here and open an 
office. For the next two years he spent his summers in Smith- 
field and winters in Philadelphia. His health was not good and 
he never recovered from the attack brought on by the enormous 
over-strain during the last part of his army service. In the 
winter of 1865 he had a severe hemorrhage of the lungs, which 
was succeeded by two others. He was confined for two months 
to his room, and as soon as able he left Philadelphia and re- 
turned to Smithfield. After remaining here quietly for six 
months he recovered sufficiently to resume office practice, and 
in August, 1866, he decided to move to Elmira, N. Y. He sold 
the farm, and moved with the family to Elmira and opened an 
office at 41 Baldwin street. For two years he was able to do 
considerable practice, with occasional respite. On the 18th of 
September he was called to Canton in consultation over one of 
his former patients. He took a severe cold on the trip, and 
although continuing to do his work it was with much suffering, 
till October 17, when he was prostrated and obliged to give up 
everything and take to a sick bed, which proved to be his last. 
He submitted with christian resignation, suffering intensely, 
and lingered till Feb. 15, 1869, when he died. 

The following extract, from an obituary notice written by 
Dr. William C. Wey, one of his closest professional friends, 
seems to express it all : 

"The character of Dr. Holmes can be summed vip in a few words. 
He was confined to the duties of his profession, to the exclusion of every 
other occupation and pursuit. Hence his strength and usefulness. He 
always remained a student and sought knowledge from every available 
source. At the bedside, and in his library, as in tJie early days of his 
practice, so in the last months of his career he diligently observed and 
read. This lifelong observation and extensive reading made him a wise 
physician, a valued counsellor and a highly successful practitioner." 

After his death Lois continued to keep house and took 
several boarders. For nearly three years she toiled early and 
late, taxing herself almost beyond endurance. In November, 
1871, her son married and she gave up her home and went to 
Wilkes-Barre to Hve with him. She continued to make it her 
home with his family during the remainder of her Hfe. In 1878 
she had a stroke of paralysis and was afterward quite feeble. 
She was able to be about, however, and travelled considerable. 
As the years passed she grew weaker and seldom got out, ex- 
cept to attend church. The last time she ever left the house 
was to attend a birthday reunion at Florilla Durfey's, in No- 



272 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

vember, 1896. Immediately after she was taken ill and died 
Dec. 31, 1896, having survived her husband nearly twenty-eight 
years. For fifty-eight years of her life she was a professing 
christian and lived her faith every day, quiet, earnest and sincere, 
she left an impression for good upon every one with whom she 
came in contact. Her last pastor, the Rev. Dr. W. T. Henry, 
under whose preaching she sat for eighteen years, never miss- 
ing a single Sunday, except from illness, said, when conducting 
her funeral service : "it was an inspiration to me to look into 
her placid, kindly face. She was always in her place at church 
and an intensely earnest listener. Her face shone with the 
light of the Master and was a blessing to me every time I saw 
it." She loved her home, her family and her kindred, and was 
never happier than when doing something for others. She was 
present at every family reunion before her death. She was a 
good woman, and has gone to her reward, leaving to her 
kindred who knew her the memory of a beautiful christian life, 
well spent, and to this memory — typified in many more of those 
whose names are recorded herein — this book and these lines 
are lovingly dedicated. 



The Smithfield Church. 

While Samuel Wood was not the first settler in Smithfield, 
it is likely that there were very few before him, and quite a 
number probably came very soon after, so that we are not sur- 
prised to find that within three months from the time he landed 
in the town there was a move inaugurated toward the establish- 
ment of a church, and he figures so conspicuously therein that 
he must have been one of the first movers, and likely the lead- 
ing spirit. In an ancient record book of the Baptist church, 
now in the possession of Mrs. S. L. Bird of Smithfield, and to 
whose courtesy we are indebted for the privilege of examina- 
tion, we find on the first page, in the handwriting of Samuel 
Wood himself the following : 

Smithfield, Dec. 19, 1809. 

A meeting of a number of brethren and sisters was held at the house 
of Reuben Mitchell for the purpose of finding out each others minds about 
forming into church state. 

The meeting was opened by prayer for wisdom to direct. 

1st Chose Bi'o. Samuel Wood moderator. 

2d Chose Bro. David Titus clerk. 

3d Proceeded to inquire into tlie minds of the brethren, and find 
them unanimously agreed as to the articles of faith, and also a desire to 
join together as a body. 

4th Agreed to have the council meet at the house of Bro. Joseph Smith 
in Ulster the 2d Thursday in January next at 12 o'clock. 

5th Appointed Bro. Samuel Wood to write to the churches. 



THE SMITHFIELD CHURCH. 273 

The next record is dated at Ulster, Jan. 11, 1810. At this 
meeting there were in attendance pastors and delegates from 
the Baptist churches in Owego, Chemung and Burlington and 
two missionaries from Massachusetts. After hstening to the 
christian experience of the brothers and sisters and examining 
their articles of faith the council enacted as follows : 

1 To give them fellowship as a church of Christ, believing that Christ 
is building a church in this land. 

2 To approve of their general system of faith, praying God to lead 
them further into the knowledge of his will and their duty. 

3 That Elder Hartwell give them the right hand of fellowship and 
that Elder Todd address them with an exhortation and charge. 

This program was carried out the same evening and the Baptist 
church of Smithfield was thereby duly organized. The constituent mem- 
bers numbered fifteen, five of whom were from Smithfield township.

The first business meeting of the church after its organiza- 
tion was held at the house of Reuben Mitchell, Jan. '25, 1810, 
with Samuel Wood as Moderator. It was voted to meet for a 
covenant meeting the Saturday before the third Sabbath in 
each month, a custom still observed. Arrangements were made 
for public Sabbath services to be held at the house of Reuben 
Mitchell. The records show that they met nearly every month 
sometimes at Mr. Smith's, in Ulster, other times at Mr. Mitch- 
ell's and often at Samuel Wood's, until Dec. 1811. A log 
school house having been erected near the present residence of 
Mr. Gorham Tracy, this was chosen as a central place of meet- 
ing and so remained for seven years. The first meeting was 
held Dec. 14, 1811. The first record of a pastor is in 1814, 
which was voted at a meeting held Dec. 22, 1814. Bro. Stone, 
the pastor chosen, was to serve three Sundays in each month. 
It was also voted to meet one half of the time at the school 
house, one quarter at Deacon Samuel Wood's and one quarter 
at Bro. Samuel Smith's in Ulster. Elder Stone was ordained 
Sep. 20, 1815, at a meeting held in Deacon Samuel Wood's 
barn. July 8, 1817 a meeting was held in Springfield, and for 
some years after frequent meetings were held there. In 1820 
eighteen persons were dismissed to form the Springfield church. 
In 1822 a bible class was organized by Samuel Wood and he 
was chosen leader. In 1824 several persons were dismissed to 
form a church on the river, which afterward migrated northward 
and became the Baptist church of Waverly, N. Y, In the sum- 
mer of 1818 the Congregational Society tendered to the Bap- 
tists an invitation to worship in their house a part of the time, 
which was accepted for several months. During the winter of 
1818-9 a powerful revival was experienced during which 86 



274 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

were received in baptism and 12 united by letter. By reason of 
this large accession it became necessary to have more commo- 
dious quarters. Although the members were not in financial 
condition to meet the great expense attendant in those times, 
upon building, it was resolved to trust in an overruling provi- 
dence and make the effort to erect a house of worship. It was 
necessary to transport all the material from Catskill, on the 
Hudson, at a cost of eighty dollars a ton ; it required twenty 
bushels of wheat to pay for a box of glass, and four pounds of 
butter to pay for one pound of nails. Every one was filled 
with energy and determination and by their united efforts a 
building 36 by 50 feet was raised in June 1819, with 22 foot 
posts, all heavy timbers. Nearly every man and boy in the 
township attended the raising and it is recorded that the Smith- 
field boys had the body of the building up and the plates on in 
56 minutes from the time they began the work. When it was 
enclosed, the floors laid and the pulpit finished, the expense ex- 
ceeded the subscriptions by $400. Rude benches were made of 
unplaned boards, and no further work done for two years. Such 
devotion seemed to meet divine approval, the church prospered 
and harmony prevailed, with the enforcement of strict disci- 
pline. In the winter of 1827-8 19 baptisms were reported under 
the pastorate of Elder Silas E. Shepard. In 1830 thirty-nine 
members of the Baptist church, including every member of the 
Wood family except Abraham and his family, withdrew to es- 
tablish 

The Disciple Church, 

which was organized Dec. 22, 1830. At a meeting held on that 
date Moses Wood, Ziba Gerould and Enos Smith were consti- 
tuted a committee to employ Elder Silas E. Shepard to preach 
one half of the time for one year. 

Of the thirty-nine persons who formed the new church, 
eleven belonged to the Wood family and Moses Wood was the 
leading spirit in the movement. At a meeting held Jan. 9, 
1831, the church elected the following officers : Moses Wood 
Sonas Martin, and Abraham Wood, Elders ; Asa Hackett and 
Ezra Wood, deacons. At a meeting held Mar. 31, 1831, John 
E. Hale, Moses Wood and Abraham Wood were appointed a 
committee to confer with the Baptist church relative to the rec- 
ords of said church. At a meeting held Apr. 11, 1834, the 
church voted to have Jonathan Wood and John E. Hale act as 
teachers in the church. Apr. 4, 1835, it was voted to continue 
Jonathan Wood and pay him for service. Jan. 14, 1838, Merit 
Wood and Lewis Wood were immersed by Jonathan Wood. 
Jan. 21, 1838, Lois Wood and Louise Wood were immersed by 



THE DISCIPLE CHURCH. 275 

same. Jan. 27, 1838 Richardson Wood, Abiah Wood, I'olly 
Hackett, Alma Wood, Norman and Nelson Wood were immer- 
sed by David Palmer. Feb 4, 1838 Samuel Wood, Polly Wood, 
Amasa Wood, Florilla Gerould, Emmorette Hale and Judson 
Hale were immersed by Jonathan Wood. Oct. 25, 1838, John 
E. Hale was added to the number of Deacons. Jan. 28, 1844, 
Walter Wood was immersed. Mar. 17, 1844, Daniel Holmes 
was immersed by Jonathan Wood. Apr. 25, 1844, Barnard 
Wood was appointed a teacher to assist Jonathan Wood, each 
to act one half the time. Jan. 9, 1845, Jonathan Wood resigned 
as Elder and Barnard Wood appointed to fill his place. J. E. 
Hale also resigned and J. Lawrence Gerould appointed to fill 
his place. Sept. 6, 1846, Bro, John E. Hale and his wife Re- 
becca dismissed by letter, as they were leaving the town. At a 
meeting of the church held Jan. 12, 1847, the interest of the 
members of this church in the Baptist realty was sold for the 
sum of four hundred dollars, and the money was applied on the 
site for a church building. Merit Wood, Darius Bullock, James 
Martin and J. C. Pierce were appointed a committee to select a 
site and superintend the building of a church edifice, with 
power to close the deal with the Baptist Church. Aug. 28, 
1847, the church ratified the acts of its committee who had pur- 
chased a house and lot owned by George Goodrich for four 
himdred and fifty dollars. Jan. 15, 1848, Merit Wood, Elisha 
Hackett and Lewis Wood were appointed a committee to find a 
suitable pastor. May 11, 1849, Barnard Wood continued as 
teacher one fourth of the time for one year. July 15, 1849 
Merit Wood and Ezra Wood elected Elders, and E. L. Hack- 
ett was elected Deacon to succeed Ezra Wood. Feb. 27, 1850, 
Jackson Wood, Pliny Wood, Dorcas Wood and Ruth Wood im- 
mersed by E. E. Orvis. July 13, 1852, church record says Bar- 
nard Wood died, but the family bible ot Samuel Wood records 
his death June 15, 1852. July 18, 1852, L L. Jones elected 
Elder to succeed Barnard Wood, deceased. Dec. 5, 1852 Am- 
anda Wood, received by letter from church at Alba, and Ellen 
Dewey by letter from Baptist church at Oxford Green, N. Y. 
Nov. 26, 1854, Allen Hale, Miriam Hale, Sidney Hale and Amos 
Hale receieved by letter. July 1, 1855, Walter Wood dismissed 
by letter. Aug. 5, 1855, church voted to request Sidney Hale 
to take up study for ministry. Oct. 29, 1855, letter of dismis- 
sal granted to Daniel Holmes. Dec. 10, 1860, EHzabeth Wood 
joined the church. Mar. 21, 1864, Collin Wood and Francis 
Wood joined. Mar. 16, 1864, Florence D. Wood joined. Apr. 
23, 1865, A. Edgar Wood joined. July 30, 1865, Asa Phelps 
elected deacon in place of Richardson Wood, deceased. He 
had been deacon for many years but records do not show date 



276 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

of his election. Apr. 25, 1868, the church decided to erect a 
new and larger house of worship and appointed Merit Wood, 
Enos Califf and S. W. Gerould a committee of construction. 
Jan. 14, 1869 the new house of worship was dedicated, followed 
by a series of protracted meetings lasting a month, with 60 ad- 
ditions. Aug. 28, 1870, Galen Wood joined. Sept. 15, 1871, 
Eugene G. Kingsley joined. Oct. 15, 1871, Lewis Wood resigned 
as deacon. Nov. 3, 1872, Byron Wood joined. Nov. 17, 1872, 
Emma Wood and Addie Wood joined. Mar. 22, 1874, letter 
granted to Lois Wood Holmes, to unite with the Baptist 
church at Wilkes-Barre, Pa. May 9, 1875, Eugene G. Kingsley 
elected Elder. Oct. 22, 1876, Abigail Wood withdrew from 
the Congregational Church and joined this church. Apr. 13, 
1879, Collin Wood and A. R. Button elected Elders to suc- 
ceed B. S. Dean and Amos C. Hale. Nov. 18, 1877, Merit 
Wood died. W. D. Lane officiated at his funeral and preached 
a powerful sermon from text Rev. 14 : 13. It was the largest 
funeral ever held in the church. He was the strongest pillar 
in the church and for many years had stood obligated to bear 
one fourth of any expenditure the church voted. Dec. 29, 1895, 
Newton Wood elected deacon. This in brief is a sketch of the 
records of the church in Smithfield so far as the Wood family 
are interested. At the present time the membership of the 
church is about 280, of these 16 are Woods by name and 45 by 
kindred, a little less than one fourth of the entire member- 
ship. Of the original 40 who constituted the church, 11 were 
Wood by name and 6 by kindred ; over two-fifths of the whole. 
The total number of those who have joined the church since 
organization including charter and present members is 91 by 
name Wood and 86 kindred. It may justly be said that the 
Wood family have been the main stay of the church and as such 
done honor to the name they bear. 



Alphonso Wood. 

In the Providence of Almighty God we are called upon to 
mourn the death of an honored and beloved member. Prof. 
Alphonso Wood, A. M., Ph.D., died at his residence at West 
Farms, on Tviesday, the 4th of January, 1881, in the 71st year 
of his age. In this bereavement, natural history loses an 
enthusiastic, hard-working devotee, and this association one of 
its most useful and respected members. On the 3d of Decem- 
ber he was employed in a room without a fire, and took a 
severe cold. On Wednesday of the following week he was well 
enough to go to the city. About a week after this, he fell on 
his way to the postoffice ; he sat down in the office a short 



ALPHONSO WOOD. 277 

time, to recover from the shock, and then walked home. He 
did not regard the fall of sufficient importance to speak of, and 
said nothing about it to his family. On Thursday and Satur- 
day of that week he visited the city, and on the following Sab- 
bath attended church and Sabbath school. The next day 
(Monday, the 20th) he was to ill to attend to any business, 
and on Tuesday a physician was called, who pronounced the 
malady malarial fever, for which the usual remedies were ap- 
plied. On Wednesday and Thursday, though not confined to 
his bed, he was very ill, and on Friday was too sick to rise. 
Up to this time he had suffered intense pain in the head and 
back ; after his confinement to bed he seemed to suffer from 
partial paralysis of the brain, perhaps due to the shock from 
the fall. During the following week he constantly grew weaker 
and weaker until Tuesday, the 4th of January, when the spirit 
of the good man took its flight. 

The renown of Dr. Wood as a learned botanist, and 
especially a writer on botany, demands that in a notice of his 
death some mention should be made of his career as a pioneer 
instnictor in natural history, the struggles he was called upon 
to endure, and the obstacles which hedged his way. 

The ancestors of Dr. Wood emigrated from England 
eighteen years after the landing of the Pilgrims, and settled 
at Concord in 1638. He was the seventh remove from William 
Wood, the founder of the family in America, and was born at 
Chesterfield, New Hampshire, September 17, 1810, making him 
a little more than 70 years old at his death. He lived out the 
appointed days and years of three-score and ten, and a few days 
before his death was in full possession of the powers both of 
the body and the mind. His boyhood up to the age of fifteen 
was spent at home on the farm, and in attending the village 
school and academy. When in his 16th year he began his 
career as an instructor. His time for the next five years was 
divided between labor on the farm in summer and teaching in 
winter ; at the same time carrying on his studies. At the age 
of 21, having been trained to self-reliance, he entered the Soph- 
omore class in Dartmouth College, from which he graduated 
with honors in 1834. While in college he distinguished himself 
as an accurate scholar in the ancient classics and an enthusiastic 
student in natural history, physics and vocal music. As a 
student he was literal, exact, and painstaking, never satisfied 
with less than the full solution of a probleiu, and never stopping 
short of the complete mastery of his subject ; and on account 
of his scholarly character maintained in college, and his unusual 
attainments, he was on his graduation invited to take the posi- 
tion of instructor in Latin and Natural Science in the Kimball 



278 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

Union Academy at Meriden, N. H., which he filled with dis- 
tinguished ability and great acceptability, ultimately becoming 
associate principal. He spent fifteen years at Meriden, during 
which time he obtained leave of absence to attend the Theolog- 
ical Seminary at Andover, where he pursed a course of theology 
and was licensed to preach the gospel. 

His close attention to his professional duties having im- 
paired his health, his medical adviser suggested that he should 
engage in some active out-door employment. In accordance 
with this advice, in 1849 he sought and obtained the position of 
chief engineer in constructing a railway from Rutland to Al- 
bany. Having completed this tindertaking, and his health 
being restored, he in 1852 resumed the duties of his profession 
at Cleveland, Ohio. 

While at Meriden he earned the reputation of possessing un- 
usual ability for imparting instruction. His teaching was marked 
by great simplicity and clearness. He conveyed his ideas in a few 
well-chosen words, and covered his subject with an explanation 
practical and full. No wonder, then, that he should be invited 
to take a professorship in the Ohio Female College, of which 
institution he afterward became president. During his presi- 
dency the college buildings were consumed by fire, and were 
rebuilt under his supervision. The new buildings were better 
than the old ones, and a superior mode of warming and ventila- 
tion (of Dr. Wood's invention) was introduced. 

In 1859 he resigned the presidency of the college for the 
purpose of establishing, in connection with a friend, a new 
enterprise — the Terre Haute Female College. Through his 
energy and reputation, the new establishment in a marvelously 
short time rose to great prosperity and usefulness. After 
spending two years at Terre Haute important business con- 
nected with the revision of the Class Book made it his duty to 
transfer his interest in the college and go to Brooklyn, where 
in 1861 he opened the Brooklyn Female Academy, and despite 
the unfavorable time for new enterprises, he met with great 
success. 

At the time Dr. Wood was educated there was no chair of 
any department of natural history in college ; hence he received 
no regular instruction in any of these subjects. He was a born 
naturalist, but botany had for him a most alluring fascination. 
During the time he was in college he made a large acquaintance 
with the plants of the locality. In the summer of 1832 he was 
introduced to Dr. A. G. Skinner, who was the first real botanist 
whose acquaintance the young naturalist had made. Dr. Skin- 
ner raised the veil, and introduced the young novice into the 
secret chambers of the workshop of nature. From that time 



ALPHONSO WOOD. 279 

he became an enthusiastic student of natural science, with 
botany as the chief corner-stone. 

On his graduation, as already noticed, he accepted the 
chair of Latin and Natural Science in the Kimball Union 
Academy at Meriden. On the formation of his class in botany 
he found himself in want of a suitable book. It is not easy for 
us in these days when books abound, to comprehend the diffi- 
culties of giving instruction in science half a century ago, when 
a botanist was a curiosity, and a book on the subject a treasure 
possessed by few. The text-books then extant were Eaton's 
Manual, Mrs. Lincoln's Botany, and Bigelow's Florula Bos- 
toniensis — all on the Linnaean system. Dr. Beck's Flora of 
the Northern and Middle States, on the natural system, was 
not suited to class work, on account of the paucity of informa- 
tion in the introduction. Dr. Gray's text-book was too volum- 
inous and learned, and had no flora. Dr. Wood visited Dr. 
Gray and suggested that he should prepare a more elementary 
book, but Dr. Gray did not think such a book was needed, or 
had not the time to devote to its preparation. Dr. Wood then 
determined to set about the preparation of a small book for use 
in his own classes. He contemplated only a pamphlet, or a 
little local flora, on the plan of Bigelow's, but on the natural 
system, preceded by an introduction to contain the elements of 
the science, with analytical tables. But as he proceeded it 
grew on his hands, and after ten years of preparation, collect- 
ing materials, and teaching from the manuscript, the " Class- 
Book of Botany " was put in the hands of the printer — a 12 mo. 
volume of 474 pages, entitled : 

"A CLASS-BOOK OF BOTANY," in two parts. First, the Elements 
of Botanical Science; second, the Natural Orders: illustrated by a 
Flora of the Northern U. S., particularly New England and New York. 

The first sentences in this book's preface give his reasons 
for publishing it. He says : " That there is need of a new class- 
book of botany, prepared on the basis of the present advanced 
state of the science, and at the same time adapted to the cir- 
cumstances of the mass of students collected in our institutions 
and seminaries of learning, is manifest to all who now attempt 
either to teach or learn. The time has arrived when botany 
should no longer be presented to the learner encumbered with 
the puerile misconceptions and bare facts of the old school, but 
as a system of nature, raised by recent researches to the dignity 
and rank of a science founded upon the principles of inductive 
philosophy." 

In 1862, actuated by a desire to make a more useful book 
for the general learner, he published " Object Lessons." In 
1870, believing a smaller and more comprehensive book than 



280 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

the class book (which had run through more than forty edi- 
tions) was necessary, he pubHshed the Botanist and Florist. 
In 1872 he published his Plant Record, and in 1879, in connec- 
tion with Dr. Steele, he gave to the student his Fourteen 
Weeks in Botany. In this little book he has especially shown 
his desire to make botany learnable. To make some amount 
of botany attainable to the students in our seminaries and col- 
leges was from the commencement of his career as a teacher 
and a writer, the goal at which he aimed. 

More ought to be said here with reference to the Fourteen 
Weeks in Botany. Its publication cost him a great struggle. 
He felt sure that his judgment as to what constituted a scientific 
book would be called in question. This to a man who was 
making books for the use of educated men was of no small 
importance. Having decided what was best to do, he courag- 
eously did what few popular authors have been known to do. 
He stepped out of the beaten path, and in defiance of cast or 
custom, departed from normal and established methods. The 
makers of this little book having broken loose from custom, 
like an earnest reader who plunges into the part of a new 
book which first attracts his notice as a readable spot, have 
seized the most striking plants as objects for illustration, and 
have described them with the same want of attention to accus- 
tomed methods. The authors were fully aware that the critics 
would pronounce the book defective, yet they fearlessly went 
on. Not only the plan, but the phraseology of the book is un- 
like other books on botany. The authors aimed to inspire the 
learner with a love for this most interesting, beautiful and use- 
ful department of natural history, by clothing it in language 
with which he is already familiar. Botany has a language of its 
own, and employs about 2,700 words peculiar to itself. To 
liberate the beginner from the labor of making himself ac- 
quainted with this vast vocabulary, or even a small part of it, 
is an achievement of no ordinary character, and worth making 
a book for. The names which appear in every sentence of an 
ordinary flora are in this little book largely superseded by the 
ordinary expressions of common language. The object of 
this last effort of Dr. Wood's life was in accord with his former 
labors, all of which were to make botany more prominent and 
more widely taught in our schools. 

Some estimate may be made of the value of Dr. Wood's 
text-books by the number used. Over 200,000 volumes have 
been sold. In 1857, contemplating the enlargement of the 
Class Book, he made an excursion into the southern states 
spending six months of that year in the examination of the in- 
teresting flora south of Mason and Dixon's line, obtaining at 



THE WAR OF THE REVOLUTION. 281 

the same time important information concerning the character 
and condition of the people, and especially the habits and treat- 
ment of the African race then in bondage. 

He had a strong desire to be able to visit the extreme 
western parts of America, to examine the flora west of the 
Rocky Mountains. In 1865 he set out for California, in which 
excursion he spent more than a year. He traveled, en zigzag, 
from the northern part of California to the southern boundary of 
British America, exploring the entire region of the coast range 
along the Pacific slope. These journeyings were made on 
horseback and in part on foot. He ascended wooded hills, 
entered dark valleys and canyons, reposed under the shadows 
of the gigantic Sequoia, and famished on the arid sands. 
Month after month he journeyed, until every important botan- 
ical locality had yielded up its treasures. The uninhabited and 
mainly unexplored region, while it held out the charms of a 
new flora, presented many and serious drawbacks. Hunger, 
thirst, excessive fatigue, danger of wild beasts and poisonous 
reptiles, were among the hardships he was obliged to endure. 
But he was among his favorite surroundings. The enchanting 
notes of sylvan songsters, the mountain torrent, the constant 
recurrence of unusual individuals of a new flora, were all his, 
and he enjoyed them ; and amid all his toils and privations, he 
cheerfully exclaimed labor ipse voluptas.

Alexander Institute. White Plains, N. Y.. read by him l)efore the Torrey 
Botanical Club at Columbia College in 1881, and published here by per-

THE ROLL OF HONOR. 



The War of the Revolution. 

Much care has been taken to search out as far as possible 
the authentic records of revolutionary service, as a matter of 
reliable general information, and also to aid those of the family 
who might desire to join the patriotic orders S. A. R. or D. A. 
R. Wherever official information has been secured it is so 
recorded that a copy of the same in an application paper, giving 
the source of information as herein quoted, will be sufficient to 
admit any direct descendant. We may be pardoned for enter- 
ing quite largely into details regarding the service of our own 
grandfather, but therein will be found some true history not 
elsewhere recorded concerning Major Andre.

John Rand's regiment. Enlisted July 10, 1780 ; served three 
months and eleven days ; discharged Oct. 10, 1780, (ten days 
travel included). Worcester regiment raised for three months 
by resolve, June 22, 1780, to reinforce Continental army.

Abel Wood appears with the rank of private on pay abstract, 
Capt. Elisha Jackson's company, ten days service; marched 
from Westminster, on Bennington alarm, to East Hoosick, N. Y., 
and there dismissed ; dated Aug. 22, 1777. 

Abstract of Rolls, vol. 20, p. 110. 

This was a company of minute men, raised on account 
of the Bennington alarm, who marched from Westminster to 
join the regiment of Colonel Bridges at East Hoosick, N. Y., 
where they remained ten days in anticipation of an attack 
by Gen. Burgoyne. The danger being over they returned 
home. Soon after they probably all re-enlisted under same cap- 
tain to go as a reinforcement to Gen. Gates' army, stationed at 
Fishkill, N. Y. They returned after Oct. 17, 1777. The fol- 
lowing official record appears : 

Abel Wood appears with rank of private on muster and 
pay roll of Capt. Elisha Jackson's company ; time of service 
twenty-seven days. Company marched from Westminster to 
reinforce northern army, according to resolve, Sept. 22, 1777.

Ahijah Wood, 215. 

Ahijah Wood was a private in Capt. Miles' company, Col. 
John Whitcomb's regiment, which marched from Westminster 
April 19, 1775, upon hearing of battles of Lexington and Con- 
cord. They were known as " minute men," raised under the 
Lexington alarm call for ten days service. They went to Cam- 
bridge. At the expiration of the seven days during which they 
remained under pay a company was recruited for eight months 
service in the regular army and put in charge of Capt. Edmund 
Bemis. This company was in Col. John Whitcomb's regiment 
and took part in the siege of Boston, Ahijah was a member of 
the company. This is the story as it appears in the History of 
Westminster, p. 173, but the official record seems to differ, 
therefore the record as noted below in the certified copy is the 
correct history and should be observed — which is undoubtedly 
correct except the minute men.

These records show plainly what his service was. There 
is a traditional history of much interest and the facts we note 
are given by his son Joel, now living, as distinct memories of 
his childhood days. If the records as published in the History 
of Westminster, p. 184, may be relied upon, Samuel was 
really in service four times. His first enlistiuent was July 31, 
1777, in a company raised by Capt. Joslin, of Leominster,

which left on that day to oppose the invasion of Burgoyne. 
The battle of Benning-ton was fought Aug. 16. Our traditions 
say that on the day of the battle he was detailed on the guard 
to the baggage train and did not participate in the engagement. 
This term of service was not over ten or fifteen days and no 
record can be found in the Boston archives. His next enlist- 
ment was in Capt. Elisha Jackson's company, about Sept. 22, 
which went as a reinforcement to the army under Gen. Gates, 
on the upper Hudson. They were stationed at Fishkill to aid 
in preventing the British from passing northward. They re- 
mained there till after the surrender of the enemy, Oct. 17, 
when they returned home, their twenty-seven days enlistment 
having expired. His next enlistment was April 1, 1778, when 
he joined Capt. White's company and did service around Bos- 
ton. His term of three months having expired he returned 
home in July, 1778. He remained at home a year and then 
enlisted in Capt. Sumner's company. Col. Rand's regiment, 
July 25, 1779, for nine months. Where he served we can not 
tell. He was discharged at the expiration of his term, April 
23, 1780, and returned to Westminster. Another urgent call 
being made for recruits by resolve of June 22, 1780, he again 
enlisted July 10, 1780, for three months in Capt. Timothy Bou- 
telle's company. Col Rand's regiment, and went to West Point, 
where they were under command of Benedict Arnold. It was 
during this latter term of service that he took part in an episode 
which general history does not record, but it is nevertheless 
true. On the 23d day of Sept. Major Andre was captured by 
the three historic cowboys. They started at once with their 
prisoner toward Col. Jameson's camp, which was at North 
Castle. While they were yet some miles from their destina- 
tion they met a party of twelve soldiers from Col. John Rand's 
regiment, under command of a sergeant, who were out on a 
foraging scout. They took possession of Andre. The ser- 
geant took off one of his stirrup straps, buckled it around 
Andre's wrist and gave the other end to Samuel Wood, one of 
the squad, and he led him in to camp, where he was delivered 
to "Sheldon's Light Horse," then under command of Lieut. 
Col. Jameson. This part of Andre's experience is not given 
in any history, but we have the statement of the son, who has 
many times heard his father tell the story. In the genealogy 
of the Allen and Witter family, page 76, may be found what 
seems to us an authentic account of the continuation of Andre's 
journey. The squad had arrived with Andre some time in the 
afternoon, probably toward evening. This genealogy says : 
' Solomon Allen, lieutenant and adjutant, was ordered to select 
nine men out of three hundred and take Andre to West Point, 



THE WAR OF THE REVOLUTION. 289 

to Arnold, with a letter from Lieut. -Col. Jameson. Just at 
night, Sept. 23, 1780, he started. Andre had his arms bound 
behind him and one of the soldiers held the strap." 

The connection of thought must be plain to any one. The 
first squad brought him in with a strap. The second take him 
away bound with a strap also. 



Benjamin Barnard, 213. 

Benjamin Barnard was enrolled in Captain Miles Co., Col. 
John Whitcomb's regt. of minute men, who marched from

Timothy Brigham, 177. 

Timothy Brigham was captain of a Co. of minute men

and served 7 days. He probably fought at Bunker Hill, but 
his record was not examined further.

Nathan Johnson, 181. 

Nathan Johnson was a private, and fought in the battle of 
Bunker Hill. Official record not looked up. He claimed to 
have fired the last gun at Bunker Hill. He was present at the 
laying of the corner stone of the Bunker Hill Monument, June

290 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

Thomas Seaver, 180. 

Thomas Seaver was third in command of a Co. of Minute 
men, who marched to Cambridge from Northborough April 19, 
1775. He afterward received a Lieut's commission. Record 
not further examined. He probably fought at Bunker Hill. 



There may have been others of the family who served in 
the Revolution and it is fair to infer the possibility of finding 
records concerning any male member of the family born be- 
tween 1730 and 1760, especially of those not named Wood. The 
records were carefully examined so far as time permitted. Any 
one wishing to use information for joining patriotic societies of 
the Revolution can ascertain by correspondence with the secy. 
of state, at Boston, until the records are printed, when they can 
be found in any of the large public libraries.

ordered to duty as assistant to Inspector in charge 5th Light 
House district (Baltimore). Apr. 13 advanced to Inspector of 
5th Light House district : which position he was holding at time 
of his death. This is in brief the official war record supplied 
by the Secretary of the Navy. 

Commander Wood won his advancement step by step sole- 
ly upon his merits ; but had no opportunity to distinguish him- 
self till the Spanish War broke out. He was then the com- 
mander of the Petrel, the tiniest of gunboats and without 
protection beyond a steel deck. While the battle of Manilla was 
in progress, because of her very light draft, he saw his oppor- 
tunity to run the boat close to shore off the entrance to the 
harbor at Cavite. The Spanish ships that remained afloat had 
sought shelter under the guns of the forts at Cavite, and 
Dewey's ships could not get at them from their stations out- 
side, where they were obliged to stay because of their deep 
draft. The little Petrel steamed boldly into the harbor en- 
trance, sunk the remaining Spanish boats and then paid her re- 
spects to the Spanish forts so effectually as to silence them. 
The exploit was a remarkable exhibition of cool daring and 
skill. His brother officers believed that his feat was the most 
daring and successful of any connected with this memorable 
battle. Congress rewarded him by advancing him ten numbers 
for " eminent and conspicuous conduct in battle " which was a 
higher measure of reward than was bestowed upon any other 
commanding officer in that battle. He was detached from the 
Asiatic squadron in Dec. 1898, and after a short leave of ab- 
sence was attached to the Baltimore Light House district. He 
lived in Washington at 1266 New Hampshire Ave. Before his 
return from Manilla, his health had broken down and he was 
not rugged. Attacked with typhoid fever his system had no 
strength to throw it off and after a week's illness he died Dec. 
11, 1899. 

Duncan Mahon Wood, 2607, 

was appointed a naval cadet Sept. 30, 1892, and entered the 
naval academy at Annapolis. He graduated June 1, 1896, and 
was at once assigned to the Massachusetts. He was detached 



300 WILLIAM WOOD GENEALOGY. 

Apr. 7, 1898, and ordered to the Wasp. May 6, 1898, he was 
promoted to ensign. Sept. 17, 1898, he was detached and or- 
dered to the Iowa. May 16, 1899, again detached and ordered 
to the Brutus. Sept. 20, 1899, he was detached and ordered 
to proceed to Manilla and report to the Commander-in-chief ot 
the Asiatic station for duty. Oct. 29, 1899, he was assigned to 
the Monterey. June 20, 1900, he was detached and ordered to 
the Oregon, on which he is at present stationed. This is the 
official record as supplied by the Sec'y of the Navy. The Ore- 
gon is now in Chinese waters. The Wasp on which he served 
during the war was in Cuba and Porto Rico. While he has not 
yet had the opportunity of any distinguishment he is a worthy 
son of his father, and if the opportunity offers he will make a 
record, as his father did before him, and of which the family 
may justly be proud. 

A BRIEF ACCOUNT 
of the Various Reunions of the Samuel Wood Branch. 



FIRST reunion. 

The first reunion was held in Smithfield on the old home- 
stead lawn, Sept. 4, 1877. At this meeting Dr. Darius Bullock, 
one of the oldest residents in Smithfield, then in his 87th 
year, was present and read a very interesting article prepared 
by him for the occasion. It embodied the early history of 
Samuel Wood, which is given in this book. Remarks were 
made by Galen Wood, Sidney Hale and B. S. Dean, pastor of 
the Disciple Church, who said : "A word touching the charac- 
teristics of this Wood family. Now there are two family traits 
that have been strikingly perpetuated among the Woods ; one 
physical; the other moral. The first is "the bald head," so 
much in evidence here to-day. The second is a strong religious 
tendency. Of those living in Smithfield who have Wood blood 
in their veins and have reached years of understanding, nine- 
tenths are christian people." 

P. S. Everett, pastor of the Baptist Church, made some 
remarks. He said : " The moral traits of the Wood family 
have been mentioned. I believe there are no criminals among 
them. There are two of the clan here present who are minis- 
ters of the gospel. No other family in Smithfield has done so 
much for the spread of the gospel, and no other man in his 
church has done so much for it as he on whose premises we are 
gathered." 

Of those present from a distance were Rev. A. Sidney Hale 
and wife, Lyons, N. Y. ; W. H. Allen and wife, Waverly, N. Y. ; 
Marcus B. Gerould, of Rockford, 111. ; Mrs. Lois Wood Holmes, 
of Wilkes-Barre, Pa., and Nelson Wood, of Troy, Pa. 



RE-UNIONS OF SMITHFIELD BRANCH. 301 

SECOND REUNION. 

The second reunion was held on the ancestral homestead, 
Sept. 4, 1882. At midday, 225 descendants gathered around 
the festive board and filled themselves with good things. At 
2:30 the memorial exercises were opened by a song "Altogether 
Once Again," after which the Rev. F. V. Brown read the 90th 
Psalm from Samuel Wood's time-worn bible, and prayer was 
offered by Rev. J. L. King. Willard A. Wood, the owner and 
occupant of the ancestral homestead, then welcomed the assem- 
bled friends to the hospitality and freedom of the old homestead, 
speaking as follows : 

Under the blessings of a kind Providence we have been spared to meet 
here to-day to look into eacli other's faces, to grasp hands and speak words 
of love and sympathy. Need I say I am glad to see you all 'i It is one of 
the happiest days of my life and to you who have come a long distance to 
attend this occasion, we are especially glad to welcome yon with us to- 
day, and we thank you for tlie pains you have taken to be liere. It gives 
me great pleasure to welcome you all to the old homestead where seventy- 
three years ago Grandfather Wood commenced in the wilderness to make 
a home. It seems to be my lot to be in possession of the paternal acres. 
One of my greatest ambitions has been to keep and improve it, and I need 
not say that I love the old homestead, because it is the place where my 
father and grandfather finished their life work. As long as these reunions 
of our family occur here I hope to be the one to extend the welcome, and 
when I am gone I hope my boy (I wish I could say boys) may be spared to 
extend the vv-elcome greeting. And now we extend to you the privi- 
leges of the premises, hoping it may be a day of real enjoyment long to be 
remembered. 

Joel Wood, of Emporia, Kansas, responded to the address 
of welcome as the oldest living representative of the family. 
Rev. Galen Wood, of Aurora, O., also made remarks. Clinton 
E. Wood, of Burlingame, Kan., the historian, read an interest- 
ing genealogical and historical sketch. Merit Wood read the rec- 
ord of marriages and deaths. Hollis M. Hale, of Boston, deliv- 
ered a brief but stirring address. It was voted to have the 
genealogical record by the historian published. Among those 
present from a distance were : Joel Wood and wife, Emporia, 
Kan. ; Clinton Wood, wife and son, Burlingame, Kan. ; Darius

FOURTH REUNION. 



The fourth reunion was held on the old homestead Sept. 4, 
1890. One hundred and seventy-five descendants gathered to 
celebrate this event. The day was beautiful and typical of the 
Wood race. The earlier part of the day was devoted to gen- 
eral greetings and the renewal of acquaintance. A picnic 
dinner was served at noon. As soon as it was over the exer- 
cises began ; Newton Wood presided. Darius Wood read the 
scripture lesson from the historic family bible. Prayer was 
offered by Walter Wood. Collin Wood read from the records 
the address of welcome delivered by Willard Wood (deceased) 
at the last reunion. Rev. Galen Wood responded in an earnest 
and fitting address. He alluded to the memory of those who 
had departed since the last reunion and paid an eloquent tribute 
to the Wood race. Letters were read from absent members. 
Theodore S. Wood of Westminster, Mass., who lives on the old 
homestead where our ancestor Samuel was born, then addressed 
the gathering. The Historical record was read by Newton 
Wood. A male quartette composed of the four sons of Merit 
Wood, (Collin, Francis, Galen and Byron) then sang " Home 
and Mother," in a very affecting manner. It was then moved 
by Collin Wood that we complete an organization which was 
carried and a constitution adopted. The following officers were 
elected : Newton Wood, President ; Charles T. Wood, Vice- 
President ; Collin Wood, Secretary ; Allen Wood, Treasurer ; 
Collin Wood, Historian ; Executive Committee to be named by
