  • Notes 
    • VR of Bradford, births: John s. Edward and Mary June 25, 1731. Deaths: John, youngest son Edward Oct 2, 1738.

      FHL Ancestral File file shows John as son of Richard, brother of Edward, as does the Wood Family Index, which shows date of birth as Jan 28, 1729-30, which is date of birth for Richard's son John. Note recording of death of John, son of Edward in Bradford VR. However, if son of Richard, born before parent's marriage.

      Wood-Wiggin genealogy FHL Microfiche 6125456 shows John as son of Edward and Mary (Spofford). Also says was soldier in Rev. War.
