I was interested to see your post. There was a Dr. Joseph Wood (c. 1789-aft. 1850) who married Susannah Lindsay (1789-1857) in Guilford Co. in 1811. She was my 5th great aunt, a daughter of Judge Robert Lindsay (c.1735-1801) and his second wife Ann "Nancy" McGee (1753/4-1832).
I believe this Joseph was a son of Reuben Wood (c. 1755-1812) and his wife Charity Hinds. I've got that Reuben was born in New Jersey, and was a son of John Wood (1716-1794) and that John was born in Plymouth, Mass. & died Randolph Co., NC.
The story goes that Dr. Joseph Wood wanted to go to Texas, but his wife Susannah Lindsay did not want to leave her home and family in North Carolina, so they parted company. Joseph is said to have died in Gongalez, Texas at the age of 80. Susannah probably died at Kernersville, NC, and is buried at the cemetery of her father's plantation on Deep River, Guilford Co., NC.
Dr. Joseph Wood & Susannah Lindsay had at least eight children, and at least four of their sons were doctors. The children were: Nancy Lindsay Wood (1812-1842, m. Abel Shields), Eliza Linday Wood (1814-1849, m. Joseph Hunt Siceloff), Dr. Edwin Wood (c. 1816, never married, d. Sparta, Missouri), Dr. William Bell Wood (1817-1883, never married, died at New Orleans, La.), Dr. Robert Lindsay Wood (1821-1911, m. Georgianna Allen, 2nd. m. Mary Black, 3rd m. Sarah Buxton, d. Leavenworth, Kansas), Dr. Sidney S. Wood (1825-1908, died Orange Co., California), Sarah Charity Wood (1828-1920, m. William S. Yohe, d. Leavenworth, Kansas) and John Wood (c.1834-aft. 1880, living in New Orleans with his brothers in 1880).
