Obadiah Wood/Mary(Polly)Sherwood
Posted by: Melissa Duncan (ID *****8998) Date: April 03, 2005 at 08:50:48
  of 785

I am looking for anyone related to Obadiah Wood m. Mary Sherwood ca 1788 in Connecticut. Most likely Weston. Obadiah's line is the following...

Obadiah Wood b. 1700

s-Lemuel Wood b 1729 m 4 June 1760 Sarah Whitlock b. 14 Jan 1734 daughter of Thomas Whitlock and Damaris Hide.

children...Lemuel b. 1764
Obadiah b. 1766
Thomas b. 1768 d. 1834

Obadiah m. Mary Sherwood(daughter of Jabez Sherwood)ca 1788.

I am trying to find their children. Although I have no proof, circumstances lead towards 3 people so far...

Walter Wood
Sherwood Wood
David Wood


I found Walter and Sherwood in the census of Fairfield Cty, CT. living next to or close to Obadiah. They then all appear on the Delaware County, NY census at the same time as well.

Obadiah and Mary moved to Hamden, Delaware County, New York approximately the same time that the 3 "sons" moved there. David settled not far away in Stamford, NY and raised his family there. David is my gr-gr-gr-grandfather. I would love to be able to find his family. I have his family to date. I am just trying to track down his ancestors. David was born in Ct in 1800 and died in Stamford,NY in 1870.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
