Rood Family Genealogy Forum
Of the four children of Samuel ROOD and Hannah SQUIRES/DONAHUE that I know of, Florence is the only one I know much about. Florence Ellen ROOD (1854 - 19 Dec 1918) married Quincy Adams SMITH (16 Mar 1843 - 14 Apr 1909) on 28 Jan 1874. Quincy was the son of Benjamin Bostwick SMITH (1792-1860) and his 3rd wife Maria VINCENT (1799-1862). Quincy was a farmer in Bristol, Ontario Co, NY. Both he and Florence are buried in Evergreen Cemetery in Bristol.
Florence and Quincy had only one child, Gurnie Augusta SMITH (5 Jun 1880 - 13 Dec 1930) (my grandmother). Gurnie married Charles Andrew TRAVIS 22 Feb 1900. Gurnie and Charles had 8 children Florence (1901-1975), Ada (1903-1977), Clifford (1906-1907), Robert (1908-1986), Frances (1910-1985), Quincy (1912-1975), Muriel (1914-1915), and Virginia (1916-1984)
