Hello~My cousin John Wilmot Wood (Woods), born in Ontario, Canada, and his wife Anna E. lived in Williamson County (first Marion, then Herrin) from 1914 through 1942. They are on the 1940 census in Herrin--John working for the WPA. In 1942 he registers for the WWII military at age 52, still living in Herrin, but now says his closest relative is his mother in Canada. I assume his wife Anna E. died in Williamson County between 1940-1942. They had no children. I am trying to determine if there is any record of an Anna E Wood or Woods dieing in Herrin at that time. They were married around 1914, probably in Williamson County, but have not been able to find a marriage record so I don't know Anna's maiden name, just that she was born in Illinois. I know this is a long shot with the common name of WOOD but thought it was worth a shot. I don't know what became of either one of them after 1942. Previous to working for the WPA, John worked for the Railroad as a locomotive fireman. Any info would be appreciated. Thank you!
