I am in possession of a small (6"x4"x1 1/4"), extremely well worn bible which lists several members of the Wood family going back to 1841 as well as Caldwell, Smith, Miller, Faulkner, Owens, MacDonald, Cooper, Cranford and Webb. It appears to have been presented to a Hilda McFee (?)in 1913. I acquired it before I became interested in genealogy just because I couldn't bear to see it destroyed. If this sounds like it could be your branch of the family, contact me and I will send it to you.

I live in Michigan. I typed in the name of one member of the Wood family and came up with California but,since I wasn't certain he would really want the bible or use the info I decided my ancestry account would be a better way to find someone that would really want/use it. Where are you?
Do you think any of this bibles entries could help you?

Bertha OWENS married Lee WOODS c 1904
Elizabeth OWENS married Jacob WOOD {UEL} aft 1778
Martha FAULKER married Amos WOODS 11 Aug 1847
John 'Rock' SMITH married Elizabeth WOOD c 1640

at least 4 other names married into my family RANSOME's & AIKEN's.. BUT I have each of those names you've listed in my file...

So difficult to say from such a distance w/o a scanned copy to look at and know more information. Like you, would hate to see it lost.
Don't know if looking at my tree would help any or not..
God Bless

Surnames: Wood, Whitney
Hi Rhonda, I doubt if any of my relatives are in your Bible but I have to ask. My GGGGrandfather was Harry Wood of Ohio but he either owned or chartered ships over Lake Erie. His daughters were Emily, Martha, Adelia, Lillian m Shifferstein, Victoria and Isabel (Belle). Belle married a seaman by the name of Emmett Whitney. My grandfather Ray Valentine went to sea with one or both grandfathers at an early age so Michigan is not out of the realm of anyone settling there. I do not know the married names of some of the daughters.
Are any of these names listed?
Thanks for checking. Lisa

I am in fact of the Miller branch of that family. I believe Hilda was married to Ted MacDonald, my mothers half brother, who is still living in Arizona. I would love to have the bible or at leasta copy of it.
