|LSP||Re: Emory Wood & Matilda Harrison|
Per the 1850 AA Co., MD census you located: I'd check out
Matilda B Wood Harrison, at Find A Grave #115255759. Sounds like Emory Wood was definitely related to her.
Matilda B Wood, married Jos G Harrison, on 28 May 1816 in St. James Parish (a place), AA Co., MD. My earliest known Harrison, born in 1745, was on the Calvert Co. tax list in 1783. He is buried in Calvert Co. Hope this helps.

|LSP||RE: Wood family|
I haven't found anything to connect Emory, born in about 1838. Have you? I would expect he'd be with my Rachel Wood in 1850 in Calvert Co., at age 12, iIF she were his mother. I don't know of a connection with this generation of Woods with the Harrisons. My Harrisons were from Huntingtown, in Calvert Co. Have you checked out the sons of Samuel Wood #115778009? They were from AA.
20 Apr 1860, I located an Emory H Wood, born about 1838, signed up on the Baltimore (Civil War) Enlistment Registers, aged 22, in Vol. 57, p 250. The hard to read register lists Lt. Magruder, 5 years (signup I guess), born in Anne Arundel Co., MD, blacksmith, hazel eyes, brown hair, 5'9" tall. 2 Drgo (dragoon?), Co. H, deserted 21 Jul 1861. Follow it as a lead since it's hard to read.
Have you been to the MD Archives or looked digital docs up, online? If you're familiar with Emory's children, follow the repeated family names, as was custom. Have you followed Matilda Harrison? Good luck with the scarce records.

Hello' Yes I am related to Stringham's. Eunice Stringham, Levi Columbus, Philip and James and then it goes on back. Levi's wife was a Wilbur and that line is very interesting as they were Mormon and the family history is fascinating.
Levi is my 3rd great grandfather. I have done a lot of work on this family. Carolyn Smith firstname.lastname@example.org

Hi Kathy - I am interested in the Vaughn family gravestone in Jacksonville, Morgan Co., IL East Cemetery. I've tried & tried to read the inscriptions on Rufus M.'s & Mary E.'s sides of the stone, but can't make out the engraving. Would you happen to have better copies where the inscriptions can be read? Or, did you perhaps make a note of the inscriptions, verbatim?
Kind regards - Lynnea
Curious: are you descendent of colonial Dyer, such as Mary Barrett Dyer?
I don't mind adding information as long as its correct. I'll trust it is.
Thanks for eliminating a blank.

Sorry, My bad! I deleted it. Frankly, I don't know where that came from.
