38. George W. WOOD1,76,77,78 was born on 28 December 1869 in Crawford County, Arkansas.2,18,19,79,80 He died on 20 February 1943 at the age of 73 in Crawford County, Arkansas.2,22 He was buried in Woods Cemetery, Crawford County, Arkansas.

1900 U. S. Census gave his birthdate as Dec 1869. Eleven years old in 1880 Census.
The book History in Headstones has transcribed his birth as 28 Dec 1864 and it is posted that way on FindAGrave - no picture. This census of 1900 and his marriage record to Amanda, both indicate he was born in 1869, not 1864.

There is a marriage record in Crawford Co for George W. Wood, age 26 and Isabel Gokely, age 18, on 8 Jul 1893; married by D. Parham, MG. I do not know if this is the same George Wood - in 1893, this George would have been about age 24.

There is also the marriage of Geo. W. Wood, age 29, to Mrs. Amanda Justice, nee Harp, age 25, on 23 Jul 1898; G. R. Michael, JP.


1900 Census. George, wife Amanda, married 1 year with 1 month old daughter Effa. Troy Wood, nephew, born Mar 1886 is listed living with them.
1910 Census. Jasper Twp. G. W. & M. A. with Effie, Roy, Ray, Elsie, Crawford & Noah.
Found in Crawford Co 1920 Census. Wife is listed as Mandy A. born in Missouri. [Had found a marriage from George H. Wood to Lucinda Dotson so that's probably not this George. a George R. Wood was sherriff of Crawford Co about 1896.] One of the Georges was married 8 Jul 1893 to Isabel Gokeley.
