The James C. Wood family I am researching is given below, I found the names in the 1850 and 1860 Alabama censuses but cannot locate any of them for an 1870 census, probably left Alabama after the war between the states and I know NOTHING further (absolutely nothing) about any other Wood connections to this family.
