Looking for any information regarding my grandfather's family. Grandfather: Charles William Wood (b. 1 April 1918 in Pittsburgh, PA - d. 7 Sept 1989 in Valrico, FL) son of Charles Wesley Wood and Birdie Fielding. Two brothers, John and Robert, two sisters, Mabel and Marian. I don't know anything else about his family. He married Elizabeth Jane Pfiffer (b. 12 April 1922 in Pittsburgh, PA)in 1943 and they had five children, one of whom is my father, Douglas Charles. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

What did you want to know about Charles & his wife?
They lived 2 doors away from us when I was a child, on Gass Avenue, the North side of Pittsburgh. I used to visit them as a child. Betty's parents lived fairly close by. They lived on Shadeland Avenue, just across the Shadeland Avenue bridge.
I believe I have been in touch with your brother(?) about them, probably about a year ago. Charles (we called him CHUCK), must have been a member of the McClure Avenue Presbyterian Church because I recently saw an old photo of him in an old group picture at church. It looked like it was from the late 30's. You can email me at
