In Reply to: William Wood, Sr. 1700 in VA by Joyce Wood of 683

Thank you for sharing your research.

We corresponded on these families a couple of years ago.

I have done a little more work on them.

I've noticed there's a Michael WOOD in this area of SC (or with a plat surveyed by MUSGROVE in 1762):

I'm wondering if this is the same Michael WOOD associated with PASCHAL in Bute Co NC in 1775:

I see that there's an Ann WOOD in Bute Co NC as well as on Abner's Creek SC.

I notice that a Mrs. Ann WOOD received for revolutionary service (audited accounts or stub entries or indents) to SC: I'll have to work on this.

Looking at the following online plat abstract for Jeremiah GLENN, I notice Joshua WOOD:

I have only two Joshua WOODs in my notes: one of them is mentioned in a plat for Thomas HOOPER; and, Thomas HOOPER is mentioned in a plat for Obediah HOOPER. I've been working on Obediah HOOPER as a neighbor of Moses WOOD:

I know the GLENN family (mentioned above) is the same family connected to my COLEMANs out of Cumberland Co VA.

So far, the only land record I've found for Coleman WOOD is much later (1834) than the time period on which we've been working; but, it puts him with an interest in the area of Fairforest Creek:

It's hard for me to comprehend; but, the GLENN and COLEMAN lines are my mother's (Will of Patience COLEMAN, 1771 Cumberland Co VA); and, the WOOD and COLEMAN lines are my father's (Jane WOOD PACE BRUTON)--and, I have never found any direct connection between them.

18 Jul 1771, will of Patience COLEMAN:
In the name of God amen, I Patience COLEMAN of the county of Cumberland and parish of Southam being in perfect mind and memory thanks be to Almighty God for the same do make and ordain this my last will and testament in manner and form following

Have you worked on any females with a name like Averilla or Abrilla?

Have you seen any WOOD combined with words which look like SEAY WOOD or SEARS WOOD or SERRE WOOD?

Any comments will be greatly appreciated.
