1900 census Henderson Co, TX:

Wood, Elbert M., hd, b Ma 1864, 35, M 10 yrs, b TX, AL, AL
" Annie C., wf, b Dec 1870, 29, M 10 yrs 5 ch, 4 lvg, b TX, TX, TX

1880 census Henderson Co, TX, I'd guess Elbert's mother was a Reeves:

Category: Name; Relationsip to head of household; Marital Status; Gender; Race; Age; Birthplace; Occupation; Father's Birthplace; Mother's Birthplace.

Malachiah REEVES Self M Male W 36 AL Farmer NC AL

If you go to Rootsweb's WorldConnect -- http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi -- type in Wood, Elbert, born 1864, you'll find several matches and some take both the Reeves and Wood lines back.
