I'm also looking for any information on a Susannah(Susanna) Woods who married James Smith from Trimble Township Athens County. When James died he left all his land to his wife Susanna and adopted son John W Smith. John W was not yet 18 so Susanna appointed Ephraim Woods as his legal guardian. John W Smith always considered Susanna his real mother and is buried beside her in Union Cemetery in Hocking county. I thought Susanna's mother may be Elizabeth since she is living with her in Athens County in 1870 and soon after joins John W in Hocking County where he bought land. This Woods family is hard to trace, would appreciate any information that you may have found, thanks...Joyce
