    Hi Velma,
    I received your packet yesterday. Thank you very much for sending it.
    Were the Wilson's that married into the Wood family the children/cousins of Marilda Wood Wilson's husband's first marriage? Joseph Wilson's first wife was Mary Dearing.
    They had: Nancy, James, John, Susan, Martha, Benjamin and Joseph. Martha married Marilda's brother, Jeriah Wood.
    Also, the Sarah Wood that is living with Jane Wood in 1850 - who is she? She is not a daughter of Andrew's since he died in 1832. I have a speculation as to who she is, but no proof.
    In 1850 Levi Wood was made a guardian of Sarah E. Wood the orphan and only heir of John Wood. She was about 8 at the time. Was she living with Jane in the census? I don't know. I don't even know who the John Wood was that is Sarah's father. I couldn't find a will in Moniteau Co. The Hall boy that was living with Jane in 1860 could be a nephew. The Wood family is very connected to the Hall family.
    I have gotten the packet together to send you, and I won't get it sent until tomorrow.
    Thank you again. I will let you know when I get the packet in the mail.

    I believe that one of John and Parthena's sons, Marion Marshall witnessed Jane Wood's will

    Jane Woods Will Moniteau County Probate Office dated 30 May 1865 P223

    I Jane Wood of the County of Moniteau in the State of Missouri do make and order in this my last will and testament.
    First I will my body be decently intered and my funeral expences paid as soon as pracicable after my decease.
    Second I will that my personal effects be disposed of in the following manner to wit: My son Joseph Wood, Russell Wood, Jeriah Wood and Andrew Wood are to have one feather bed each and the remainder of my personal property to be sold and the proceeds equally divided among all of my children after paying all of my just debts and funeral expenses.
    Third I will that my sons Jeriah and Andrew Wood execute this will and if all interested are agreed they shall advertise and sell the property and distribute the proceeds without the expense of administration , and if not, then the same shall be recorded and probated according to law.
    In witness whereof I hereto sit my hand and seal and register this will my last will and testament this thirtieth day of May 1865. her
    Jane X Wood Seal

    Signed ____ and ______ by the above named Jane Wood and for her last will and testament in the presence of us who with her came and in her presence have _______ our names in witness thereto.
    H H Hudson
    Marion Marshall
    Source: Ann Howard sent to me by Joan Hurt Mar 2005
    In 1860 H H Hudson and family were listed 5 families away(he witnessed Janes will in 1865) Therefore Jane lived north of Jamestown, based on the following information.
    In the History of Jamestown, Missouri 1837-1987, page 251, Hilliard Harris Hudson was living north of Jamestown and is buried in the Mt. Zion Cemetery(Recordings of Linn Twp Cemeteries, page 75)

    The settlement of Jane's estate is interesting reading. Son Jeriah claimed board and nursing for Jane from 1 Aug 1864-1 June 1865. 10 months at $10. a month. Then from 1 June to 1 Aug 1865, Two months at$20. a month. He also had to hire a girl for four weeks at $2. a week. Candles and provisions for waiters, $20. $3. was spent to publish the executors notice in the Central Missourian. Drs . Ellis and Thomas submitted a bill for $18 for visits and medication for Mrs Jenny Wood on 23 Apr then on June 2,14,23, and 29, 1865. If the word dropsy is read correctly, Jane was afflicted with edema, which is an abnormal excess acccumulation of serous fluid(resembling serum) in connective tissue or in a serous cavity.
    HH Hudson claimed $3 for services rendered as witness, appraisor and Clerk of Sale of Jane's estate. William Moore received $10 for coffin which the same deceased was buried in. $8 was paid to C G Hickcox auctioneer among other misc. fees. I B Thomas refers to the estate of Mrs Jennie Wood. The estate was finally settled at the September term 1868 with $203.72 to be distributed. Jane's sons, Jeriah and Andrew Wood each had two outstanding notes due with interest. What was her income?
    The inventory of Jane's estate was the most facinating reading. The first list was made by Jeriah and Andrew Wood as executors, witnessed by C M Carlos and H H Hudson. Jefferson Pennington, JP signed the document in a very shakey hand. The 5 Internal Revenue Certificate stamp has George Washington's picture in the center. The second inventory list is the appraisal completer by C M D Carlos, James F Moore and H H HUdson. The third was the itemized list of the actual sale of her belongings and who bought each item. H H Hudson was clerk. Marilda Wilson was one of the people who bought something at the auction of Jane Wood's belongings. She was Marilda Wood, second wife of Joseph A Wilson.

    1883 exerpt came from Boonville Weekly Advertiser, Boonville, Cooper Co.,MO, 4 Jan 1884, page 1.
    Miss Jane Howard celebrated her 90th birthday on 12th.
    Miss Jane Howard died on 31.
    This is most likely not Jane Howard but put this here so as not to lose it.She is said to have died in 1865)(V W, the age is right)
