My ancestors in Wood County date back to about 1850. Several of your surnames pop up in my family tree index. Most were from Texas, but not necessarily Wood County.

The primary Wood County names I've been researching are: MANSELL, REED, BILLINGSLEY, MOBERLY, HOOPER, and HOBBS. I am also interested in: COX, MINICK, HUMPHREYS, TURBEVILLE, LINDLEY, MC GUIRE, and REICH.

Do you connect to any of the following:

Ada Thelma Ray m. Chester Thompson Mansell
Beulah Alberta Ray m. Wade Bohanham Mansell
William R. Hooper m. Mary Ray
Rueben Pendleton Ray m. Jenny Melissa Hooper
Sarah Blanche Ray m. Robert Christian Minick
Grover Cox m. Nettie Reed
Member Silverside Hooper m. Margaret Cox
Frances Rogers m. Wm. Moberly
Rebecca Rogers
Eliabeth Robers m. Moberly
James Rogers m. Mary Moberly
Margaret Burnett m. John Pritchford Turbeville
Elizabeth Burnett m. Alfred Field Mansell

Flora Davis m. Ernest Cleveland Mansell

Lula Russell Caldwell m. Ira Vance Mansell

I do have a copy of the History of Wood County 1850-1900. If you don't have a copy, I can do look ups. Many of your surnames are in the book.
