James Warren WOOD and Phoebe Caroline HARDIN were married on 31 December 1833 in Madison County, Kentucky.2 Phoebe Caroline HARDIN10 was born in 1811.

Daughter of Polly Hardin - nothing else known. Polly Hardin gave consent for Phoebe Hardin to marry James Wood. Bond dated 30 Dec 1833; Horeb West was the bondsman. Minister's return dated 31 Dec 1833

There was a Hannah Harden in the 1830 census in Madison Co - she had two daughters ages 15-20 and Phoebe would have been 19. I suspect this might be her mother...

James Warren WOOD and Phoebe Caroline HARDIN had the following children:



Nancy WOOD.



William Frank WOOD.



Sarah A. "Sally" WOOD.



Thomas A. WOOD.



Hannah Frances WOOD.



Valentine WOOD.



Laura Lamina WOOD.



Joseph Buchanan "Joe Buck" WOOD.



Mary Elizabeth WOOD was born about 1853 in Lawrence County, Arkansas.11 She died in June 1920 at the age of 67 in Belgrade, Washington County, Missouri.

I did not find a Missouri death certificate in 1920 for any Mary in Washington Co.



Martha Jane WOOD.
