These are surnames associated with my WOOD family in Vigo Co. (so far): CHENOWETH, WHITE, COOPER, FAITH, MELTON, UNDERWOOD, HENDRICKSON, WILLIAMS, HARPER, WRIGHT
My 2nd great-grandfather was Isaac Chenoweth Wood born in Vigo Co., IN in 1826. Isaac had a younger brother named George D. Wood and a younger sister named Elizabeth Wood. They are living together in 1850 in Otter Creek twp. Isaac married Sarah Jane COOPER in Parke Co., IN in 1852. George married Ann UNDERWOOD in Vigo Co. in 1854. Elizabeth married Adam HENDRICKSON in DeWitt Co., IL in 1854. Isaac and Sarah are found living in DeWitt Co., Illinois in 1860. In 1870 they are living in Edgar Co., IL and in 1880 they are back in Vigo County in Otter Creek.
Isaac, George and Elizabeth's mother's name was Catherine (born in OH), maiden name unknown (could have been CHENOWETH). Their father's name is believed to be John or Jonathan Wood(born in VA or WV). Jonathan either died or he and Catherine were divorced by 1837 because Catherine Wood married Presley FAITH in Vigo County in 1837. Presley and Catherine and the Wood children family are in the 1840 Vigo Co. census. Presley and Catherine had three children, Martha, William and Charles Faith. Presley died in January 1850 and Catherine died September 1850. I am looking for any information on these families to help shed some light on the WOOD clan. Isaac and Sarah Jane had 8 children:
Thomas Nelson WOOD
George Washington WOOD
Sarah Catherine WOOD
William J. WOOD
Rose Elizabeth WOOD
Frank B. WOOD
Margaret Jane WOOD
Eva (Evelyn or Evaline) M. WOOD
