Descendants of the Brothers Jeremiah and John Wood


Descendants of the Brothers Jeremiah and John Wood - William S. Wood.

This informative genealogy illuminates as many as seven generations in each family descended from the brothers: Jeremiah and John Wood. Jeremiah Wood (1678-1730) married Dority Benett in 1709 in Lyme, Connecticut. Jeremiah's brother, John Wood (d. 1725) married Elizabeth Buckminster in 1704 in Framingham, Massachusetts. The descendants of these brothers are treated in two separate sections providing ample historical material on the early families, including occupations, land holdings, contents of wills, personal characteristics, education, military service, spouses and children, and sometimes information about their ancestors. Each generation is listed, and each individual is assigned a chronological number. The lists include the names of children and their spouse, and when possible, dates of birth and death, and sometimes the place of death. If someone was married more than once, the children of that union are listed under the corresponding parents' names. Two indices round out this volume: one referencing heads of families by the name of Wood and the other heads of allied families. The text is further enhanced by more than a dozen portraits.
