The Two James Woods: Orange NC 1820-1850
Posted by: Brett F. Woods Date: May 11, 2000 at 19:21:12

I'm attempting to straighten out the two James Woodses who were living in Orange County NC c1825-1830.

The first one is the James Woods is enumerated on page 328 of the 1830 Orange County NC Census. His birth range is indicated to be between 1790-1800. Other family members include the following:

1 male born 1820-1825
1 female born 1825-1830
1 female born 1820-1825
1 female born 1790-1800 UNK wife

In 1840, this same James is enumerated on page 190 of the Orange County NC Census and the family composition is as follows:

2 males born 1830-1835
1 male born 1820-1825
1 male born 1790-1800 James
1 female born 1825-1830
1 female born 1790-1800

In 1850, this same James is enumerated on page 245 of the 1850 Orange County Census as follows:

James Woods 55
Mary Woods 55
James Woods 18 1832
Narcissa 20 1830
Lambert 16 1834
NOTE: All births in NC

Now, the second James Woods as enumerated on page 187 of the 1850 Orange County NC Census as follows:

James Woods 45
Polly Woods 40
Betsy Woods 20
Margaret Woods 16
Mary Woods 14
Julia Woods 12
William Woods 8
Frances Mebane 74
NOTE: All births in NC

Due to the fact that Frances Mebane is living in the household, this is doubtless the James Woods who married Polly Mebane in Orange County on 5 February 1829. This said, is the first James Woods the same James who married Polly Brown 15 May 1818 with a Hugh Woods as the bondsman?

Further, is this James Woods the same James who is listed in Sarah Elkins postings (Woods Family GenForum message numbers 1481 and 1482) as the son of Joseph Woods (1750-1852)? Sarah indicated that Joseph had the following children:

Eli Woods b. March 12 1799 d. Feb 5, 1840 m. Margaret Brown
John Woods d. bef 1851
Mary Woods married William Hall
William Woods
James Woods
Hugh Woods (Eliza Jane Ray)
Elizabeth Woods married a Hale or Hall
Sam Woods

I realize that this is a very long query, however I would appreciate any comments. Thanks.
