HELP. I am looking for concrete information on William Melton Wood. The information I have is that he was born 1803-1806 in York County Va to Mathew and Margaret Moss Wood. Some time after 1810 the family moved to an area near Barnesville Belmont Ohio. In 1834 there is a land transfer between Matthew and Margaret Wood to William Wood. It also talks of selling land to sons Issac and Abeaham, this dated Feb 1834. Mathew and Margaret move back to York County Va where he dies in 1839.
A lot of folks have posted that William died 18 July 1878, some listed his death as Jan 1880. I found a William nd Rebecca on the 9 June 1880 US Census in Belmont county Ohio the ages match if I use the 1803 date of birth
Need to have proof that William was the son of Mathew and Margaret, a firn date of death would be great as well as place of burial.

Thanks so much for any help you might be ableto give.
