WOOD, Alfred Descendents

I am looking for any relatives/descendents of ALfred, Augustus, Moses and Hezikaiah WOOD

Alfred WOOD, appears in the Damascus Township, Wayne County, PA census of 1850. His age is listed as 38 and his wife, Mary as 36. That would make him born in 1812 +/- Another article on his son stated he was born and grew to manhood in Fishkill-on-the -Hudson, NY. I believe that is where Beacon, NY is today. To the best of my limited knowledge, he lived in Damascus(southern PA, across the river from Narrowsburg, NY) and Berlin Township (south a few miles from the above location) the rest of his life. Mary's name was Mary BIGSBY, from Binghamton, NY, born about 1814.
Their children were:
Augustus b. 1843
Moses b. 1846
Elizabeth b. 1848? married James Knepp
Angeline b.1850? married Walter Walford
Malissa b. 1852? married Charles Lawson

Children of Augustus WOOD and Barbara HIER (HYER)
William b. 1867 ? married Annie White of Milanville, PA
Alfred b. 1870 married Minna(e) Skinner of Sullivan Co., NY, may have lived in Hawley, PA
John W b. 1873
Harrison b. 1883 married Mary Gaston
Frank b. 1885
Mabel b. 1889 married Miller

Children of Moses WOOD and Betsey FERGUSON
Edward Daughters, Alice and Betty, married Bruga brothers
David lived in Mileses, NY
Mary married James Minchler; daughter Clara Elizabeth married Coe Young, who had one son Horace Young

Hezikiah may have been a brother to Alfred. He served in the Civil War and is buried near Welcome Lake, PA

Please reply directly to me at

Thanks in advance
