Clarinda found as a widow in Crawford Co AR in 1880.

Thomas WOOD Jr. and Clarinda WINKLER were married.31 Clarinda WINKLER30, daughter of WILLIAM WINKLER and NANCY D. NOLAND, was born about 1824 in Kentucky.15,30,31

The husbands of Clarinda and her sister Nancy were brothers.

Gave her age as 51 in the 1880 Crawford Co AR Census - birth year of 1829. She was older. The 1850 census gives her age as 26, and she may even have been older than that.

Clarinda's household was very interesting as found in 1880. John H. is there, age 23, but not listed as a son. C. M. Rizzley is a 26 year old man who works on the farm. Several children are marked as daughter or son and surely must be grandchildren. There is a 10 year old girl, Lyly, marked as daughter. Thelma, age 6, Julia, age 8/12, Edward, age 1, and John, age 1 are all listed as illegitimate - certainly the two young boys are not likely to have been Clarinda's children. This census is faded and very difficult to read.

Thomas WOOD Jr. and Clarinda WINKLER had the following children:

43

i.

Mary WOOD was born in 1841 in Missouri.15

44

ii.

Margaret WOOD was born in 1845 in Missouri.15

45

iii.

Nancy J. WOOD was born in 1847 in Missouri.15

In 1880, A Jane Wood, daughter was in Clarinda's household, age 29, born in Missouri - that would be a birth year of 1851. This family was hopeless when it came to census ages.

46

iv.

Marinda WOOD was born in 1849 in Arkansas.15

47

v.

Malissa WOOD was born in 1853 in Missouri.30

Birthplace given as Missouri in 1860. In 1880, "Lizza" was suggested as born 1857 in Texas, surname Williams. I'm not sure this is even the same person!

48

vi.

Manda Jane WOOD was born in 1858 in Arkansas.29,30

In 1860, Manda J. was age 2, born 1858 or so. There didn't seem to be any other possibilites for a "Jane". She was also shown as born in Arkansas.

In 1880 there was a Jane Wood in Clarinda's household, but she was age 29 and born in Missouri - was this the older sister Nancy J.?

John H. WOOD was born in 1856 in Arkansas.29
