Revolutionary War soldier.

Son of Stephen Sr. Wood & Anne Johnson of Lunenburg Co., VA.

Married 06/04/1765 in Halifax (now Franklin) Co., VA to Anne Smith.

Their issue:

1. Anne "Nancy" Wood (1767-?) (Alexander Ferguson, Jr.)
2. Elizabeth "Betsy" Wood (1770-?) (Burwell Law, Sr.)
3. Thomas "Tom" Wood (1773-?) (Sarah Paisley)
4. Susannah "Susan" Wood (1776-1848) (Rev. Moses Greer)
5. Samuel "Sam" Wood (1779-?)

7. Calvin "Cal" Wood (1783-1783)
8. Mary "Popy" Wood (1785-1789)

10. Rev. Stephen Wood (1790-1859) (Lydia Holland)

Lived between Taylor's Store (now gone, was 1.6 miles NE of present day Burnt Chimney) & Blackwater Creek.

No stones have ever been found for many of the Wood family. The Wood Cemetery is on original land. Some graves are marked with field stones, most not at all, or at one time had wooden headboard markers. What was left in the 1940's was probably vandalized or is buried beneath topsoil & leaves. A GPR survey of the site would reveal many things. It is said that some graves on the west side of the site were slaves of Stephen & his sons.
