Descendants of Matthew Wood
I have a small child's china mug inscribed with "A Present" that he gave to his first grandchild, Kenney Marcus Comstock, for Christmas in 1887.
Kenney was my grandfather and I was his first grandchild so he gave it to me when I was born.
My first grandchild was born in 1987, one hundred years after the first gift, and the mug will be his.
Very little is known about Joseph Christopher Wood's progenitor, Matthew Wood, except what appeared in a Goodspeed article probably submitted by Joseph Christopher himself. No confirmation, even of his name, has been found. More is known about three probable sons of Matthew found in Madison County, Kentucky. There were other Wood/Woods families in Madison County - they were not the same family.
