Robert B. Wood
Birth: 1836
Death: Jul. 1, 1878

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Coxswain in the Union Navy. His citation reads "Attached to the USS Minnesota and temporarily served on the USS Mount Washington during action against the enemy in the Nansemond River, 14 April 1863. When the USS Mount Washington drifted against the bank and all men were driven from the decks by escaping steam following several successive hits which sruck her boiler and stopped her engines, Wood boarded the stricksn vessel and, despite a strike on the head by a spent ball, continued at his gun for six hours as fierce artillery and musketry continued to rake her decks." He was reinterred from Columbus State Hospital Cemetery, Columbus, Ohio in June 1998. (bio by: Don Morfe)
