You have my permission to include all info on your web page.

My greatgreatgrandfather Benjamin Wood Born in England Oct 29th 1849 came over about 1860 was married to Mary (Hema?)

Florence and Benjamin Married March 7 1898 Pittsburgh I have the certificate.
They lived at Harcuums Alley,Larkin Way and Jane Street they always rented. Benjamin was a clerk, I believe for the railroad.

They had Bessie Wood born July 27th 1892 She married John or Fred Theil she died August 1982 in Oakmont PA

They next had Raymond Benjamin Wood born Dec 24 1895 Pittsburgh Pa Died March 18 1981 Florida. He married 1st Ruth, Second Emma B. Howard and 3rd Henrietta Weisand deceased Florida. He has several children most living. No one knows anything.

Benjamin Died Oct 16th 1915 and is buried in Southside Cemetery. No Stones. He is buried Between Mary who died Oct 5 1897 and his Second wife Florence E. Bean born Dec 24th 1876 WV died in Pittsburgh about 1914.

The man at the cemetery would not let me look up the info in the book nor would he let me write a letter and request it. I think he had an issue because there were no stones.He did show us where the graves were he just would not give me dates. I plan to request Florence's death cert. And then I can share that with you.

Florence Bean and Benjamin Wood had George Washington Wood born Feb 22 1899 Pitts (my grandfather) died March 28 1958 buried Millersport Ohio Cemetery Fairfield County off of Lancaster Street, near Buckeye Lake. He married Jennie Mayvin Solomon born May 24th 1908 she died Nov 2 1972 Columbus Ohio Thombstone Pleasant Hill Cemetery Madison County OH. Her ashes are in my basement.  They were divorced 1928. Their only son, my father, is still  living. Mayvin married about 4 more times and died under the name Barwick.

George Washington Wood had 2 sisters Helen Wood born abt 1904 Pittsburgh and Thelma Wood born abt 1901 Pittsburgh according to the 1910 Census. I would love to know more about them.
