No relation. I just enjoy browsing through some items up for auction on eBay and trying to connect info provided. Came across on item that seemed to fit this family:

http://cgi.msn.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=2209944998&category=29466

Partially printed form in May 1767 directing a survey of 250 acres of land on Raystown branch of Juniata River(Cumberland Co, PA) for Thomas Woods "where he has lived on these 5 years past". These orders are known as "West Side Applications" - issued by the Colony of PA between 1766 and 1769 for lands west of the Susquehanna River already "presumptively settled" by unauthorized settlement. Dated 1767 at Philadelphia.
