Thomas Wood SR (b.1760'sVA-living 1842 Clarke/Oconee Co GA)

Posted: 1379455140000
Classification: Query
I am trying to sort out the Wood family of early Clarke/Oconee Co GA. Warning: this definitely contains some educated speculation. Can anyone prove or disprove that the following were children & grandchildren of Thomas Wood SR who was listed in the Clarke Co tax digest from 1802 to 1842?? And where in Virginia did he come from?

All additions & corrections welcome

Thomas Wood SR
(b.1760's-living 1830) married ???????? (B.1760's-living 1830). Listed
in the Clarke Co Ga tax digest 1802-1842. Some online sources say he
came from Buckingham Co or Mecklenburg Co VA. Some online sources say
he died in 1839, but he is listed in the tax digest through 1842. There
are two Thomas Wood listed in the 1840 Clarke Co GA census but neither
is old enough to be Thomas SR. Thomas Wood SR is listed in the 1827 GA Land Lottery as Revolutionary soldier.

1820 Oglethorpe Co GA census
Wood, Thomas 1m16-18 1m16-26 1m>45 1f10-16 1f>45

1830 Clarke Co GA census
Wood, Thomas SR 1m<5 1m5-10 1m15-20 1m60-70 2f<5 1f15-20 1f20-30 1f60-70

1840 Clarke Co GA census
Wood, Thomas 1m<5 1m10-15 1m20-30 1m50-60 1f15-20 2f20-30 1f40-50
NOTE: Thomas should be in his 70's in 1840. Tax digests indicate that there were only two Thomas Wood in Clarke Co from 1839 to 1842 (Jr and SR)

I suspect that Thomas Wood SR had two brothers:
1)William B Wood (b.1780-85VA-d.1850's Clarke Co GA) md Lydia ____? Ten children listed in estate records.
2)John "Jack"Jackson" Wood (b.1775-80VA-living 1860 Clarke Co GA) married ???? (She died between 1840 & 1860. No children.

Believed to be children and grandchildren of Thomas Wood SR:

1)WILLIAM WOOD (b.pre-1791--d.pre.1827) md 1809 Clarke Co Ga to
Elizabeth Sims (b.1780's-living 1848)
-1810 tax digest indicates that Thomas Wood transferred land he owned in Wilkinson Co to William Wood.
-Last found in 1818 Clarke Co tax digest in Ga Factory District. Is Betsy Woods listed in 1820 Clarke Co census his wife??
-minor children of William Wood (father absent) won land in 1827 lottery.
-1830 tax digest: Thomas Stewart paid tax as agent for orphans of Elizabeth
Wood (land won in 1827 lottery)(Georgia Factory District)

1830 Clarke Co GA census (includes my GUESSING as to who each person is)

Lucinda Wood (b.abt.1808-living 1860) married 1829 clarke Co Ga to
Thomas Stewart (b.abt.1801-d.1854-1855). Was Beechey Wood, age 87,
listed with Lucinda Stewart in the 1860 census, Elizabeth Sims Wood??

William Rosson Wood (b.abt.1815-living 1880) md 1835 Clarke Co Ga to
Martha "Matilda" Kines (b.abt.1816-living 1870), daughter of Martin
Kines and Elizabeth WOOD. In 1880, his wife is called Susan. Is this
Matilda' s middle name or is she a 2nd wife?

C. Mertis Ann Wood (b.1815-19)-d.1851-1860)) md 1834 Clarke Co Ga to David Royster (d.1854/5).

6.MARY "POLLY" WOOD (b.abt.1801GA-d.1891 Oconee Co GA)-not married.
This is my line. I need to find PROOF that she was a single woman, rather than a widow (by 1850). In the 1880 Oconee Co census, she claims to be a widow. However, she is referred to as MISS Polly Wood in at least one record. In 1870, Ann Wood-Loyd was living with Mary Wood (her sister?). The Revolutionary War Pension of Joseph Garner contains a letter from Charles G Burger (b.1788), written in 1842, claiming that his son, Jacob Burger married "Poley Wood's daughter". In 1850, Benjamin McRee (age 83) gave six acres of land to Mary Wood for "natural regard and affection". He was not her father; were they related??

A. Frances Wood (b.abt.1820-living 1889 Oconee Co GA) md 1839 Clarke Co GA
to Thomas Kines (b.1810-15--living 1846), son of Martin Kines and
Elizabeth WOOD.

B. Martha Ann Wood (b.abt.1822-living 1897 Oconee Co GA) md 1841 Clarke Co GA to Jacob Burger (1820-1864)

C. William Wood (b.1825-d.1905 Clarke Co GA) md 1847 Clarke Co GA to Mary Loving (b.abt.1827-d.1914)


7.NANCY WOOD (b.abt.1806-living 1850) md 1826 Clarke Co GA to James Allen
(b.abt.1803-living 1850). Census: 1830-1840 Clarke Co GA, 1850 Cobb Co

Wood in the 1870 census, and next door to her in 1880.
