CHANCE, WISE, WOOD posted by Douglas L. Hatto on Saturday, February 1, 1997

William WOOD and wife Margaret had several children in the area of Jefferson, Belmont and Harrison Counties in late 1700's. William WOOD's will was probated in Harrison Co. about 1832. Of their children 3 daughters married CHANCE men. Effie married Joshua CHANCE 1812, Isabel married Aaron CHANCE 1810 and Margery married Joseph CHANCE 1815. According to marriage index, all three marriages took place in Jefferson Co. Looking for any information on the origian of these folk, descendants, burials, etc. Our ancestors, Joshua CHANCE and Effie WOOD had a daughter Rachael born about 1816, possible Harrison Co. They were later found in Coshocton Co. where Rachael married Benjamin WISE and had family. The CHANCE/WOOD parents disappeared from Coshocton Co. and may have returned to the Harrison Co. area.
