Can anyone help with this Woods family?
From copied pages of an old family Bible Joseph Woods died September 28, 1838 and Agnes died February 12, 1839. Agnes’ death date follows Joseph with the comment “Mother of the above.” The Bible includes the family of Hugh and Bell (Woods) Evans giving names and birth dates of their children but does not indicate the connection of Bell to Joseph or Agnes. Hugh Evans and Joseph Woods signed the bond for the marriage of Hugh and Bell February 1, 1808, in Franklin County, Kentucky. Hugh and Bell (Woods) Evans lived in northern Mercer County on the Salt River. In his will of 1844 Hugh divides the town of Lucto among his six children: Alexander, Samuel, William, Elizabeth (widow of James Vanarsdale), Nancy/Agnes (wife of Rowan Gritton), and Sarah (wife of Floyd Gritton).
Were Bell and Joseph siblings with Agnes their mother? In 1830 there is a female between the ages of 60 & 70 living with the Evans family possibly Agnes Woods. The Bible doesn’t give a birth date for Bell but she was born between 1780-1790 according the census records. There is a Joseph Woods in Mercer County whose age on census records indicates he could be a brother of Bell.
Any suggestions about the husband of Agnes and father of Bell and Joseph?
