Thomas Woods born 1800 TN is listed in the 1850 census for Tippah Co. Miss along with his wife Elizabeth, possibly Hunt, and their four sons. Grandville Alexander b. 1826 AL, John b. 1828 TN, Egbert b. 1836 MS, and William b. 1838 MS. It appears Thomas was in Tippah Co. in 1840 and possibly Hardeman Co., TN with his father-n-law John Hunt. Their appearance in Hardeman Co., TN would align with birth of son John could anyone tell me where they were in Alabama when son Grandville was born. Would any male "Woods" descendants be interested in doing the Y DNA test on FamilyTreeDNA.com ? I believe Thomas is related to Isaac Woods b. 1729 and wife Rachel Ramey who are listed in group 39 of the Wood/Woods project on familytreedna.com. I would love to hear from someone on this subject there is surely an oracle of family history out there somewhere. I would also like to know what happened to the son John Woods.
