I am looking for the parents of Philander WOOD. Also, I have his wifes name as Sarah A.Unknown, no proof of siblings.

What I do have is:
1850 Census, Harpersfield Twp., Ashtabula Co. Ohio.
Household of Nathan THOMPSON, 50, Waggon Maker
Fanny, age 43, born N.Y.
Charlotte, 10, born Ohio
Philip, 5, born Ohio
Jennette Morse, 16, born Ohio
Joseph WOOD, 24, Blacksmith, born Ohio
Philander WOOD, 21, Blacksmith
Joseph a brother of Philander? Nathan Thompson was a waggon maker, maybe they worked for/lived with Nathan's family?

1870 Census, Geneva Twp., Ashtabula Co., Ohio
Household of Philander Wood. Info. from Valerie, Wood family researcher; Susanna & dau. Mary J. were living with Philander's family.

1870 Census, Plymorth Twp, Ashtabula Co., Ohio
Household of Collins E. Mann. Timothy Wood linving in household of his dau., Minerva, and her spouse, Collins.This info. also from Valerie.
Perhaps there was illness and Susanna & dau., Mary J. had to go live with Susanna's son, Philanders family whild her spouse, Timothy, went to live with his dau., Minerva, and son in law, Collins. I KNOW Timothy Wood & Susanna [Susannah], [Susan] Brakeman were husband/wife with issue.

1880 Census, Ashtabula, Ashtabula Co., Ohio
Houehold of Philander WOOD, 50, b. Ohio, Blacksmith, both parents b. N. Y.
Sara A., wife, 48, b. MA (Massachussetts), both parents born MA
Hattie M. Wood, dau, single, age 17, b. Ohio
Minnie E. Wood, dau., single, 13
John F. Wood, son, single, 11
Sara A. Wood, dau., single, 8

Death Records, Ashtabula Co., Ohio, LDS film # 090260
WOOD,P.H., died 17 Sep. 1887, age 52 yrs., 10 months, 10days, Ashtabula, Unionville (can't read headings on last 2 locations), blacksmith, father Timothy WOOD (Timothy WOOD who wed Susannah [Susan]Brakeman ?), died of comsumption.
Susanna Brakeman-Wood died 1880 so perhaps that is why she is not named as Philander's mother on death record?

Does anyone have anything that can PROVE I have the RIGHT Timothy Wood as Philander's father?

Thanks for any help.
