SURNAMES: WOOD
Looking for parents of William I. Wood. The story goes he was born along the Ohio River on December 1st, 1867, 68 or 69 (depending on Family Bible, his marriage license, or the 1920 census). His marriage license points to being born in Gallion County (Gallia) and his death certificate points to Gallipoise (Gallipolis). This leads me to believe he was born in Gallipolis, Ohio. The story goes he ran away at a very early age, caught a river boat and ended up in Beaver County, PA. The first information I can pick up on him is 1890, when he gets married to Nora Eiferd. No one knows the names of his parents, or if he had any brothers or sisters. If anyone is missing a William I. Wood about that time, I would enjoy sharing the information I have.
