St. Francois County
Missouri, USA

Wood, Rev. John, son of Joshua and Sarah (Marsh) Wood, was born in Randolph County, Va., Nov. 23, 1829. He was married in 1850 to Fidelia Nichols. Of their seven children one is commissioner of schools in California. His early education was limited. With commendable devotion he learned to read after his conversion, which took place in 1853. In 1871 he received license to preach, and three years later he was ordained. He has since engaged in revival and pastoral work. His labors have been largely instrumental in building up the St. Francois County Q. M., Missouri, all the churches of which, except two, he has either organized or assisted in organizing. He is an untiring worker, and is widely known and influential in adjoining counties. In the pulpit and out he gives his influence for Christ and for the union of Christians.
He is a minister of the Free-Will Baptist Church, having taken out his license in 1875. He is now a member of the "Missouri Board", whose function is to secure a union between the Free-Will Baptists and the General Baptists of Southeast Missouri. Their efforts are likely to be crowned with success. If successful much of the honor belongs to Mr. Wood, who was first to agitate the subject. Mr. Wood is the owner of ten acres of nursery and has a variety of fruit trees adapted to this climate.
