Yes, it does look like he had a fourth wife. Which would be the Emily in 1880 census. I checked the marriage records of Rabun Co., GA and W. J. Wood married Emily Page on 26 Jul 1877, by John Coffee, minister of the gospel. This is the right bride name and the ages of the two younger children would fit a marriage in 1877. I would say that the William P. Wood in Rabun Co., Georgia in 1880 is him. The son in 1880 was Govan W. D. Wood and Govan D. Wood married Jemima Hooper in Jackson Co., NC 16 Sep 1883. He died before 1910 and she married a Johnson and lived in Hendeson Co., NC.
I don't find Posey or Italy in 1900 census.
I will post his "notes" here, as well as Govan D. Wood's.
The 1870 census William Wood family does not match exactly the l860 W. P. & Jane Wood family.
l860 is: W. P. WOOD, 38, male
Jane WOOD, 39
P. WOOD, 21, female
M. WOOD, 16, female
W. S. WOOD, l4, male
W. H. WOOD, l3, male
G. W. W. WOOD, ll, male
J. (or T.?) A. H. WOOD, 9, male
J. (or T.?) A. R. WOOD, 7, female
M. G. WOOD, 5, male
P. D. WOOD, 3, female
Z. B. V. WOOD, l0/l2, male
1870 is: William WOOD, 46
Jane WOOD, 50
Ibby WOOD, 16, female
Asbury WOOD, l7
Coleman WOOD, 12
Parryju(?) WOOD, 9, female
Goldman WOOD, 8, male
Z. B. V. WOOD, 6, male
Javan D., WOOD, 4, male
Taylor WOOD, 22, farm laborer
Elizabeth WOOD, l8, keeping house (evidently, Elizabeth is the
wife of Taylor Wood. Is Taylor their son?)
These have to be the same family that was listed above in the l860 census. This is obviously the family Daddy always talked about where each child had up to 7 names. He would call them for us, but the only one I remember was "Sweet Mary Modena Elizabeth Ann Wood." Stringfield also had a long one, but I don't remember it. The ages are off in l870, but the Z. B. V. Wood, age l0/l2 in l860 and age 6 in l870 has to be same person.
The booklet that I got from Earl Wood has William Pery Wood married to Mary London first, Jane Barnes second and Emaralis Mathis third. According to his birth year and the marriage year to Mary London, he would have been only 16 when he married her. It also said he was married 5 times. It lists his family like this: (The last two on the list are by the third wife.)
Mary P. Wood, b. 1839
Martha Jane Wood, b. 1841
W. Stringfield Wood, b. Jan 1845, md. Sarah (Sallie) Jane Wood
William Henry Taylor Wood, b. 1848, md. Elizabeth Long
George Washington Wood, b. 1849
John Asbury Wood, md. Mary A. ______
Isabella Artie Ingabo Wood, b. 1855
Judy Oldfield Wood
Mont Goldman Wood, b. 1859, m. Jane Brown
Zebulon Baird Vance Wood, b. 1860, m. Sarah Long
Marion D. Wood
William Perry Wood, Jr.
Golman Wood (He is obviously the Mont Goldman above. ng)
Javan D. Wood
Polly Y. Wood
Do I have the right marriage for Jemima? The Jackson Co., NC records
have Jemima Hooper (21) m. Govan Woods(21) (b. 1862) 16 Sep 1883.
Jack William Hooper was the bondsman. Wendell Hooper has Jemima born
2 Apr 1833. Since Andrew & Margaret were not married until 14 Oct
1837, Wendell's Jemima must not be their daughter.
In the 1880 census, Jemima Hooper, age 25, was "sister-in-law" and
living with John & Laura E. Wike.
Wendell has Jemima S. Hooper married a second time to ??? Johnson. So
does the Patti Poitinger papers.
I did find a Jemima Johnson in 1910 census in Henderson Co., NC, with a dau, Ethel, the right age.
1910 Henderson Co., NC - Flat Rock - 303/300
JOHNSON, Jamima, widow, m. 3 yrs, 1 child, 1 living,b. NC, both parents b. NC
WOOD, Ehtel, dau, 21, Single, b. NC, both parents b. NC
1920 Henderson Co., NC - Hendersonville - 67/69
GLOVER, Jeff, 30
GLOVER, Ethel, wife, 31, b. NC
GLOVER, Geraldine, dua, 6, b. NC
GLOVER, Maxaine, dau, 4, b. NC
GLOVER, J. Davis, son, 2, b. NC
JOHNSON, Jemima, mother-in-law, 63, widow, b. NC, both parents b. NC
1930 Henderson Co., NC - Hendersonville - 53/54
JOHNSON, Jemima S., 75, widow, married at age 25, b. NC, both parents b. NC
GLOVER, Jefferson D., 39, married at age 20
GLOVER, Ethel, wife, 40, married at age 20, b. NC
Where did I get a child, Jim Glover Wood, for her?
