I have a John Woods born approx. 1791 in either VA (WV?), TM, or NC according to records of each of three different sons. I do know that a Granville Woods shows up in Pulaski Co., KY with him. I did don find a connection but always wondered. Could these be brothers, etc.

I do apologize but maybe... I am looking for James Woods wife Rachel ?Garland? that living in 1853 in Barbourville, Knox County, Kentucky and see that you have a Woods Family with a James and In the same area. Any help please? I have poured over the 1860 and 1850 census records and don't find them. On 19 Nov 1853 the birth of their son Andrew was registered. Andrew moved to and passed in Alabama. Thank you all for any suggestions. Cherie Lynn
