Wood River Location 1835
Posted by: Arthur Boggs (ID *****2266) Date: January 28, 2007 at 10:27:29
  of 2014

Hi, I have this from a letter dated June 10th, 1835: "Wheat crops wont make half crops. There was a hale storm went down Woodriver on the first Monday in June and past Wilson Boggs and most everything in the earth washed away." Can anyone, please, help me locate this creek or river within the old boundries of Lincoln County. I believe this creek would be in Cleveland County today, and possibly within a few miles around the comunity of Belwood.

On March 1st, 1845 Cleveland County Court of Pleas show a deed sale of 100 acres of land from the above Wilson Boggs to his brother Joseph B. Boggs. Wilson's full name in the sale record abstract is "James W. Boggs". His full and correct name is James Wilson Boggs. Perhaps someone has a copy of this deed which may describe the parcel of land and/or give a hint as to the location.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Arthur R Boggs
