William Elliot "Luke" Wood
Birth: 1804
Oneida County
New York, USA
Death: May 7, 1861
Richland County
Wisconsin, USA

About 1825 William married Mahala (or Mahalia) adopted daughter of Greelors Johnson when she was fifteen years old. William was the post-master at Bennett's Corners in 1832. The area is now known as Pine Bush, near Stockbridge, which is just west of Augusta. Perhaps as a post-master, he might have been transferred to different locations every few years, thus explaining why his and Mahala's children were apparently born in many different places, but all in the same general area. They had their first child, a daughter, Cordelia, in 1826, and she was probably born at or near the Wood Family home in Augusta. William and Mahala at some point moved to Deerfield, just north of Utica, Oneida
Co., New York. John and Marian followed in 1830 and 1834, and they were most likely born at Deerfield. Deerfield is now a northern suburb of Utica, NY. Amanda was born in 1835 at Lenox, fifteen miles northwest of Augusta. In 1840 or 41, George was born, at Smithfield, about ten miles south of Lenox and just a few miles west of Augusta. Elliott was born
in 1843 at Neothy, possibly an Indian name for a place near Oneida, where the Oneida Indians lived, south of Lenox and north of Augusta some five miles. Cornelia, Adelle, Elnora and Charles were all probably born at Smithfield, a few miles west of Augusta. About 1854-5 they moved with their children and settled at Loyd, Willow Post Office, Richland
Co., Wisconsin. Both William, Mahala and two sons (John G. and Elliott W.), are buried at Loyd - at the Big Willow Cemetery, Richland County, Wisconsin.
