Hi There ~ Am researching anything that may surface on my gr gr gr grandfather, Joseph Wood. He was born in North Carolina. His wife, Amelia Singletary was born in Bladen County, NC. Joseph's father was also a Joseph Wood, and it is not known whether or not he was born in NC or not.
Recently, I was in Hendersonville, NC and was able to visit the Historical Society. While there, the kind elderly man loooked up several records for me. He found that there was a Joseph Wood who paid taxes in Bladen County in 1781, as well as a Lucy Wood, who also paid taxes in 1781. She was shown, as was he, as being the head of the house, in two separate listings.
Also from the Index of North Carolina Ancestors, by NC Gen. Society 1981, it shows the following:
Joseph Woods married in NC, Co.14, (County 14?) to a Christina Shell (60454)
Does anyone have any information about this name, Joseph Wood and possibly Christina Shell? Would anyone happen to have them in their family ancestry? Would look forward to hearing from anyone who might have something on these names.
My sincerest Thanks,
