I must make slight correction regarding James T. Wood. In the 1850 Caldwell County, Texas census, he claimed to be 52 years of age, with both he and Elizabeth born in South Carolina. In the 1860 San Saba census James Wood is listed as 60 years of age and again, both he and Elizabeth claim to be born in South Carolina. In later census information, their children all placed James T. Wood and Elizabeth Morris Wood as being born in South Carolina not North Carolina. They were married November 2, 1819 in Wilson County, Tennessee. I have copy of the marriage license.

I believe the Goddard information came from the same source as the North Carolina birthplace. I have found no indication that either is correct.

James, I enjoyed your information on William Riley Wood. You have some things I had not seen before. I didn't know John Duncan's wife was a Dowdle. Both she and John are buried in the Old Algerita Cemetery at San Saba as is my great grandfather, Henry Wood, brother of William Riley Wood. Henry's wife, as you may know, was a granddaughter of John Barnett, brother of Joseph Barnett.

Have you done anything of late on the Barnett family? I am still searching. Joyce
