Some online family group records for this family include a Phineas and an Ida. They do not seem to belong to this family. I think the confusion arose because of a record of another Elisha Wood living with a younger Ida, a daughter, in another county, near the end of his life. It seems to be a valid record, but not our Elisha. I don't find any child named Phineas in records for our Elisha and Susan Ann. Eleanor Jane Wood, my mom's grandmother, was the daughter of Elisha Wood (abt 1826-aft 1900) and Susan Ann Baker Wood (1824 or 1827-?) of Saline County, MO. Eleanor's siblings: Chastine (1850-1926), George (1852-?), Jasper (1855-?), Newton(Apr 1853-1925), Elisha (1857-aft 1900), Thomas (1858-?), Clifton/Cliff (4 Sep 1861-Mar 1945), Minnie (2 Dec 1863-aft 1930), Susan/Susie (1865-?), Samuel/Sam/Sammie (1872-5 Sep 1922).
