Not my family line, just sharing.

From the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY, COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F. A. Battey & CO., Publishers. 1883."
page 356, Princeton Township, White County, Indiana

"JAMES R. WOODS is a native of North Carolina, was born July 3, 1829, and is the son of DRURY and RHODA (SHOW)[NOTE, this is probably SHAW] WOOD. In the fall of 1831, the parents of MR. WOOD came to the Hoosier State and stopped over winter on Blue River, and the next spring came to Tippecanoe County and settled about ten miles southwest of LaFayette. Here the family lived for twelve years, and then removed to Benton County and there resided two years, and then moved into the northern part of West Point Township, where the father died in 1856, and the mother in 1878. The subject of this brief sketch remained in the West Point Township homestead until the death of his father, and then removed to the place on which he now lives in Princeton Township. He was married, April 14, 1857, to MISS ESTHER THOMAS, daughter of JOHN and HANNAH THOMAS, of West Point Township. To this union have been born three children, viz.: JOHN A., who died May 20, 1862, ERASMUS M. and WALTER H. January, 1863, MR. WODD enlisted at Reynolds, in Company K, Twelfth Indiana Cavalry. He was discharged at Baton Rouge, Louisiana. MR. and MRS. Wood are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and he is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, joining February 7, 1883. MR. WOOD is a Republican."
