|Wood brothers: John Andrew, Edgar James, and Wallis Walter|
|James Edgar Wood|
Edgar Wood's father was James Edgar Wood (1871-1939), shown at right. He was a builder whose homes I've showcased in other blog posts, like the one here.
James was one of 17 children of Thomas Haskell Wood (1809-1890) and Mary Amanda Demarest Wood (1831-1897). In order from oldest to youngest, they are:
- Jane Ann Wood (1846-1936)
- Thomas Jefferson Isaiah Haskell Wood (1848-1861)
- John Marshall Taber Wood (1850-1859)
- Lucy Maria Kize Wood (1851-1870)
- William Henry White Wood (1853-1893)
- Alfred Olando Wood (1855-1895)
- Francis Ellery Wood (1857-1933)
- Joe Elemuel Wood (1859-1864)
- Lavatia Allen Wood (1859-1864)
- Charles Augustus Wood (1862-1895)
- Rachel Ellen "Nellie" Wood (1864-1954)
- George Howard Wood (1866-1866--d. in infancy)
- Marion Elton Wood (1867-1947)
- Mary Emma Wood (1869-?)
- James Edgar Wood (1871-1939)
- Robert Orrin Wood (1873-1933)
- Leander Elkanah Wood (1874-1874--d. in infancy)
William Henry White Wood married Allise (Alice?) and had four children, according to 1880 Census: Hattie, Phillip, Cathie, and Thomas. And then??
What about Charles Augustus Wood, a carpenter who died of "la grippe" in 1895? Did he marry? Or have kids? Still digging...
By the way, Mary Amanda Demarest's parentage is a mystery. See the tabs at top of this blog for a special ancestor landing page devoted just to her.
