J R Ratliff family 1880 census

For anyone WHO IS RELATED or INTERESTED in this family and doing a search at this genforum site on a WOOD family, I have NOT supplied misleading information about the mother Nancy and daughter Susan Wood.

YES, BOTH died during the month of September 1870 according to the U.S. Federal Census Mortality Schedules Index for the county of Pontotoc County, Mississippi found online . . The index did not supply an actual date of death other than the month and year.

What is the race of this family??????

Home in 1870: Township 8, Pontotoc, Mississippi Township 8 [pg 4 of 83]
Race: White
Post Office: Popler Springs
My note: Only Mary, Rebecca and Martha living with father James Wood.

WHO is the father in Montgomery County, Texas ????

MY NOTE: There is a James Wood living 1880 in Montgomery County, Texas as father-in-law in J. R. Ratliff household and I am wondering if the wife/dau "R. E." could have been daughter Rebecca but the age may be off unless I figured wrong, James born South Carolina and both parents born Virginia according to 1880 census but the wife/dau "R. E." says she was born Alabama which would have been correct for her but then the father is listed as being born in NC rather than South Carolina, wonder who gave info.......this may not be the correct James Wood at all. Age is nearly correct as well as place of birth and this James Wood was a widower. Nearby was a 20-21 yr old James Wood with wife Sarah living in Popler Springs, Nancy and James did have a son named James.. And the family DID reside in Benton/Calhoun County, Alabama.

Where was he born???
all estimate 1812 to 1814 as year of birth

The oldest daughter Jane M. Wood, married Jasper Newton Davis 1860 Benton County, Alabama. Jasper and his brother Ensley P. Davis brought their families to Texas about 1870. This James Wood living in Montgomery County, Texas could be the father of Jane (Wood) Davis.

I am interested in trying to reach out to someone who is related and interested.

Thank You
