Rev. F. M. Wood, was the son of James Perry WOOD and Melinda Elizabeth (McBee) WOOD. He moved with his family to Oklahoma a few years after 1907 statehood. They lived and farmed around Stratford. F.M. was one of the younger of their children, Vard and Walter, also sons.
Rev. F.M. was converted in a revival near Stratford, along with his brothers. He entered the ministry in the Free Will Baptist, and pastored churches in the Center Association and surrounding. He also was used as an evangelist. Preachers during these depressed, economic times were more than likely to farm or have other income to care for their family. Rev. F.M. worked some with the R.R. He and his wife had at two or three children, and one daughter, the late Marie Wood, married Rev. James Murray, who is a leader in the church in OK.
Rev. Wood was widowed at the time of his death and was living near his daughter, in OKC where he died. He was well-thought of, and was a good preacher.
(More info will be researched for his family.)
