John Woods, Rev. War soldier served from Orange County, NC.


According to court records in Bedford County, TN on 15 AUG 1832, he was born 25 DEC 1751 in Orange County, NC. He further states that he lived in Orange County, NC when he entered the service. Around 1789 he moved to Laurens County, SC then to Georgia in 1792, and from there to Franklin County, TN in 1809 and finally to Bedford County, TN in 1814.


No mention of family members were provided. However, it possible, that this is a brother to my ancestor, Elihu Woods, Sr. but more research needs to be conducted to prove this.

In reviewing the Rev War pension file, it states that the John Woods of Jackson County, TN was incorrectly listed as also being in Bedford County, TN.


I will be happy to help further, but it is busy time of year and will likely need to wait until after the holidays.


Best regards,
Kathryn Hopkins
