Dear Bryan,
I am also a family member. I'm an internist in Hurricane, WV. I recieved your email on 2-25-03 about my relatives John Wood b. 1795 and Lydia Bryant Wood b. 1811, and daug. of Ambrose Bryant. I have quite a bit of information on on Richard "Dickey" Wood and his ancestors and descendants. If you will give me your address, I will mail you all I have. I'm not sure I can successfully email it, so it would be better if I mail it.
I would love to have a copy of the newspaper article you spoke about and a photo of him if one is available.
I'm having trouble discovering the connection between Richard "Dickey" and John Wood married to Lydia Bryant Wood. I know they are related, I just can't figure out exactly how. I can tell you that Richard
"Dickey's" son by Rachael Cochram was Henry Wood. Henry and John Wood and their wives allegedly moved to Indiana about 1840 or there abouts. I can also tell you that Richard "Dickey's" son by another wife, Elizabeth Betsey Dehart, was Andrew Jackson "Jack" Wood. Jack married John & Lydia Wood's daughter, Ellytha Wood. Family tradition says that John Wood may have died in Indiana or on the way back to Virginia, but Henry Wood & his wife Nancy Bryant Wood (Lydia Bryant Wood's sister) stayed in Indiana.
John's wife Lydia moved back to VA & stayed with family in Patrick Co. Her children later moved to WV with their wives. About 1860 the kids sent to VA for their mother and she moved to WV. She died in 1895 and is buried in Mt. Moriah Cemetery in Putnam Co., WV.
Just out of interest, John & Lydia Wood had 6 children. Their son Joel Wood, had John Henry Wood, who had Lewis Samuel "Sam" Wood, who had Icley Wood Sloan, my mother.
Well, I hope you can see from the above connections why I believe John and Richard are somehow related. If their is anything you can do to help me solve this riddle, I would be so greatly indebted to you. The only other thing I can tell you about John is that from a Montgomery Co. deed I found that he was "John Jr., born 1895, and son of John Sr." Also, both John & Lydia lived in the part of Montgomery Co., VA that became Floyd Co. in 1831. It appears to me that this area is very close to Wood's Gap.

Sincerely,

Clint Sloan

I too am related to "Uncle Dicky"from the info I have Richard is the son of John Wood and unknown wife. I come from Richards marriage to Rachel and their son German who fathered my g grandfather Alexander Newton who fathered my grandfather Samuel "Dewey"Wood. Do you know if Capt. Abraham Wood is related to us or not? This info was sent to me by my aunt and I haven't had time to check anything out yet and I don't know her source as of yet. Possibly the WOOD GENERAL REUNION BOOKLET FROM MAY 30, 1936 By the way I'd be interested in any thing you have on the Wood tree. Thanks.

Surnames: Wood, Tibbets, Sloan, Little, Smith
Would you have a Richard Wood that came to Clermont Co., Ohio about 1814, died in 1829. He had daughters Amy Wood b.1805 in Ohio, m. 1829 to John B. Tibbets b. 1808, Anna Wood m. Josiah Sloan and Sidney Wood m. Stansbury Little, all marriages in Clermont Co. late 1820's .1820 census in Clermont says Richard also had three sons, but still unknown who they were. Richard Wood's will was found recently that gives this info on his daughters and also mentions a Zedekiah Wood b. 1803 in Virginia, he m. Lydia Smith in Clermont Co..We do not know how Zedekiah fits in with Richard's family. Also need the parents of Lydia Smith. These families then moved on to Indiana early 1830's and into Illinois, Mo. and Kansas. Any info would be so appreciated in finding any info on Richard Wood or these other family members. Do not have name of his wife. Thanks, Carolyn

I'm so sorry Carolyn, but the Richard Wood you are talking about is different from mine.
