States: Virginia: Patrick
Can anyone help me find the parents of John Gilbert Wood? Poor little Gilbert is living in the Patrick County Poor House (1850 Patrick Co. census) but doesn't seem to belong to anyone who is also a resident. In 1860, he is living with the Hardin Smith family. Gilbert married the widow of Joshua Lewis Martin(Martha Jane DeHart) and the relocated to Monroe Co. WV sometime between 1870-80. I have searched for Gilbert's parents for 4 years but can't connect him to anyone. Surely someone out their is missing a little boy born about 1843 in VA in their family history. I know where he lived and died and his children's names, but his parents(and why he was in the poor house to begin with) remains a mystery. HELP!!
