Stephen WOOD Bible Record & His History

 

Leather Bible Cover
Hand Stitched

This website contains information on the descendants of Stephen Wood that he personally wrote into his family bible. Stephen Wood was born in Montgomery County, Maryland on 26 Jan 1749 and died 16 November 1835 in Greene County, Illinois. I took photos of the bible in 2012. The first page of the bible is missing; however, the New Testament page is still intact and it is dated MDCCLXXXIX – 1789.

 

Dated Bible Page

The bible is leather and looks to have a spine that is hand stitched onto the front cover and back cover. There is no decoration or title inscription on the outside cover of the bible. The bible has been passed down through the Wood and Powell family and is currently owned by the 4th great granddaughter of Stephen Wood.  

Spine of Bible

The following is a transcription exactly as it is written on the bible pages themselves. It appears that Stephen wrote family information (dates of births and marriages) on any page that was blank or half-blank. Stephen was, for a time, a school teacher and had beautiful cursive handwriting. He wrote several words about the bible verses in the margins of several bible pages. The inside front and back covers are filled with references to bible chapters and verses. My comments (to clarify names) are in parentheses.

Stephen Wood Memorial Tombstone

Stephen Wood was buried in Maberry Cemetery. However, no marker or tombstone has been found. Jack Cox, a descendant of Stephen Wood, requested that the Sons of the American Revolution place a memorial stone in the Carrollton City Cemetery. Maberry Cemetery is in the middle of a farm field, so he thought a marker to commemorate Stephen should be placed in the City Cemetery. Carrollton is the county seat of Greene County, Illinois.

Stephen  Wood was a Pvt in Co. 6, Maryland Militia, Revolutionary War, Montgomery County Upper Battalion. His actual gravesite is listed as unknown, but the National Cemetery Administration lists it in Maberry Cemetery. A stone and marker for him was placed in the war memorial section of the Carrollton cemetery.

    Stephen Wood is my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather. My grandmother was Charlotte Wood who died in 1978 and is buried in Carrollton Cemetery. I have seen Stephen Wood’s marker in the cemetery. I grew up in Jerseyville, Ill. and currently live in St. Petersburg, Fl.

  2. Elaine Powell says:

    Hi Patrick,
    I am glad you contacted me. I helped Jack Cox with documentation on Stephen Wood so he could get into the SAR under Stephen Wood. He is the one that ordered the marker for Stephen. I’m so glad he did that! I would love to have your line of descent from Stephen down to you. Stephen is my husband’s 4th great grandfather. Here is his line of descent:

    Hi,

    I am very impressed with the amount of information that is on this web site. I am not a relative. However, My father bought a cattle ranch in northern CA. in 1935 from a James David March. James had lived on the ranch with his aunt Sarah Ann “March” Foreman, who was her second husband William P. Foreman and their son Willam Foreman. All but James are buried in the Elk Creek CA Cemetery. When William and Sarah passed away they left the ranch to their son William who then passed it on to James D. March when he died. James sold it to my father not long after it passed to him. I have a large trunk that belonged to Sarah which has some of her prized belongings as well as old letters and documents. It makes for very interesting reading and shows that she was married to someone else (death certificate that states he was run over by a buggy wheel). There are letters to her and James March. I researched where James is buried (Forest Ranch CA cemetery) and took pictures. The history of this family fasinates me and I will be reading more about them for I have just gathered together all the remaining letters and documents from the truck and brought them back to my home in Alaska to read. Are you interested in any further information? Sarah died in Glenn Co. CA in 1928. Her father was Rudolph and her mother was Martha “Arnold” March.

    Hi Pamla,

    Thank you so much for contacting me. I just found the information that you posted online about this. I am most interested in any further information you might find on this family in the trunk that you have. I’ve now got the whole family entered into my family tree program so I know how they connect to my husband’s Wood family. It is so interesting how you came to acquire the trunk! I would like anything you are willing to share, and would especially like to have any photos or documents that you find, esp. the death cert., where you mentioned “he was run over by a buggy wheel.” If you are able to scan in the documents, letters, photos, etc. and send them to me via email, that would be great. You can email me directly at Elaine64@aol.com
    Thanks,
    Elaine

  5. How wonderful to see actual photos of the Wood family bible! I’m not even sure how I found this page, but it was purely by accident.

    I corresponded with Jack Cox some years ago, in the course of my POINDEXTER family research, so I may have spoken to you at some point, too, but I can’t recall. It’s been a while since I dabbled in genealogy, but it’s absolutely lovely to lay eyes on the original pages that my great x5 grandfather Wood wrote. Simply magical. Even more wonderful to learn that Jack got a marker raised to Stephen. 🙂 I’m so glad I found this!

  6. Elaine Powell says:

    Gloria!

    It’s so good to hear from you! You don’t remember me? We corresponded many, many times years ago over your Poindexter/Wood line. We compared many notes and helped each other with our early research. That was in the early days of the Internet. I have a story that you wrote that Donna Kilroy posted (somewhere?) on the Poindexter Family, written in 1999. I will send it to you via email.
    I think I do remember that Jack told me he had been in contact with you. We corresponded several times. He created a website and had images of the Wood bible on it, but then it disappeared, and I cannot find him at the email address I had for him. And yes, I too was thrilled that he got the SAR to create the memorial stone and then he got it erected at the Carrollton Cemetery in Greene County.

    I will send you more info in the email.

    Elaine

  7. Jack Cox says:

    Elaine,

    I stumbled across this website because I saw that Stephen’s gravestone was listed on Find-a-Grave (63660209) by Judy Clark-Wick. There is also a page on son Amon that was rather incomplete. I added a photo of Amon’s tombstone notified her of some updated information. It’s nice to see all the photos of the bible. I remember some difficulty with you gaining access. Is it now in your posession?

    The story of Stephen’s tombstone is rather interesting, and it took me quite a while to obtain. I made application to the Veterans’ Administration, but it seemed like nothing was happening, so I called. The young lady I talked to said there was a delay because they wanted Stephen’s social security number. After I told her that he died long before SS was enacted, she asked for his service number (dogtag). I told her that there were no dogtags back then. That phone call got things moving again. The VA shipped the stone to me in Overland Park, KS. I carried it to Virden, IL on a family visit and left it with a cousin. Then, I contacted the Rick Hires, the local funeral home director and sexton of Carrollton Cemetery, who arranged to have the local NSDAR (not SAR) do all the paperwork to have it set. None of it cost me a dime!

    I haven’t done much geneology lately. I retired in Overlan Park in 2002, but couldn’t stay retired. I worked at the U.S. Navy Facilities Engineering Command as the chief planner at Naval Station Norfolk in Virginia for seven years, and the same job at the Naval Station in Naples, Italy for three years. I retired for good in March of this year. I don’t have my web page on line because it had too much information in this age of identity theft. Maybe when we get settled, I’ll bring it back up.

    It was so nice to touch base with you again – and you too, Gloria!

  8. Elaine Powell says:

    Jack!
    It is wonderful to hear from you! I have tried looking you up and didn’t know what had happened to you. The Heritage Lady is my personal website. I lost track of Gloria also but recently connected with her too — as you saw on my website. She hasn’t done much genealogy for a while. I am more into it than ever! I am 100% addicted to the “hunt.” I hardly ever miss a day without doing some research. I’ve discovered on my websites. Thanks for setting the record straight regarding acquisition of the memorial headstone. I wasn’t sure what the story was. It is VERY interesting that she did not know that military men during the Rev. War would not have had dogtags and SS numbers! I will put a link to Find A Grave on my website. Hundreds (perhaps thousands) of Stephen Wood descendants thank you!!! I also recently saw the photo on Find A Grave and contacted Judy Clark-Wick to give her more info on Stephen Wood and also Amon Wood. She has not yet responded. It’s interesting that you worked in Norfolk. My husband worked at Ft. Eustis near there for 3 1/2 years, from 2008-2011. I used to travel there with him often to do research in Virginia. Many of my ancestors lived in Virginia, starting in the early 1600s. I also discovered (through DNA testing) that his Powell ancestors lived in Isle of Wight County, Virginia in the mid 1600s. Phoebe Powell married Amon Wood — Stephen’s son. Wish I would have known you were there — we could have connected. My husband retired a year ago also so I don’t get to go on genealogy research trips as often. However, I’ve amassed thousands of documents and if I live to be 100 I doubt that I’ll get them all scanned and info entered into my computer, but I keep working on it. I haven’t yet uploaded my family file (over 16,000 people) to Ancestry.com, but my husband’s Powell cousin has put the Powell/Wood family on her Ancestry website and I add to her file when I can. I have tried to focus on specific families to put on my website because I get SO many inquiries it’s hard to keep up. But I do want to share what I’ve discovered.
    Again, it’s so good to hear from you. Let me know if you ever get to Orlando.
    Thanks,
    Elaine

  9. Bret Wood says:

    Elaine,
    This is all great info, as I think it disproves I am 5th great grand son of Stephen Wood. My 4th ggrandfather is a Bennett Wood b. about 1775, but married a Susan Hoy in Frederick Co., Maryland in Sept 1798. Where as your Bennett, son of Stephen, Married Betsy Whitlock in Nov. 1799. Back to the hunt, but its always good to throw out wrong branches. Thanks again, your neighbor in Mt. Dora.
    Bret

  10. Elaine Powell says:

    Hello Bret,

    Since your Bennett Wood was in Frederick Co., Md.in the late 1700s, I am willing to bet that he is related. I’m wondering if he is a cousin. Stephen Wood’s male ancestors had male children that you could be descended from.

    I wish I could say that it might benefit you to get your Y-DNA tested to see who you match, but unfortunately I can’t find my husband’s Wood line within the project.

    Keep me posted if you find a connection.
