From a book on the History of Greene Co., Ill.
"Mr. Wood followed farming for a few years, but his health failing him he engaged in the mercantile business, in which he was quite successful. In the year 1862 to 63 his health again failing, he returned to farm life, thinking the change would benefit him. Here he resided until his death. In 1869, Mrs. Wood's health began to fail she being taken with a severe cough, which finally terminated in death on the 18th of March, 1871. She left six children without the tender care of a mother. Mr. Wood soon followed his beloved wife to the grave. His death occurring Sept. 21, 1873. He had been troubled with a cough for 16 years, but his ambition kept him up, until he at last fell dead, with hemorrhage of the lungs leaving the younger children to the care of the two eldest sons, Perry and George. Mr. & Mrs. Wood lived a happy life in and around the vicinity of Woodville and through the county of Greene. Mr. Wood was a very enterprising man always attentive to business and gaining many friends by his honesty, uprightness and integrity."
