Sunday Surprise: Grandpa Wood's 2d marriage
This is definitely the correct James E. Wood--all the details fit. His first wife, Mary Slatter Wood, had died on 24 April 1925. So who was Alice and how did they meet?
BTW, sometime later, James married a 3d time, to Caroline (Carey) Cragg, the mother-in-law of James's nephew, a match the family helped to arrange. The couple lived in Jackson, MI at the time of the 1930 Census.
Obviously I now have to find out what happened to Alice between 1926 and 1930. Stay tuned!
