Dave, I am interested in Joseph Green and who his parents may have been. Did he have a sister who may have married a Wood and had a daughter, Jane Wood abt 1838 in SC and a son, Richard R Wood born 1848 in GA? I know there is a Green-Wood Connection and Joseph Green keeps popping up but I do not know who his parents were unless he is the son of Joseph Green that was in GA earlier.Richard Woodwas not liked by his in-laws, Andrew and Asenath Nickles Sims Weatherly.Richard married Julia Frances Weatherly abt 186in Marion Co, AL and left his family with two sons and a daughter in 1875 to go to Indian Territory where he married a Choctaw Woman and had two additional children.Since the Wood families in Wood's Creek (east of Hamilton)in Marion Co, AL werein the !st AL Calvary, I had figured there may have been a connection there also. Many Fredericksare married into the Weatherly and Wood families. What is your connection? My ggfather Samuel Peak and his brother James served in the First AL Calvaryso I have ancestors who served on both sides as many of us do.They were from Walker/Winston Co, AL area.
MARION COUNTY CIVIL WAR VETERANS, CONFEDERATE AND UNION (1997) BY DOROTHY SHORES STALCUP has this about Joseph Green:is listed in the 1850 Marion Co, AL census age 36, born in North Carolina, with wife, Martha age 34 born in TN.Joseph enlisted 14 Nov, 1862 at Corinth, MS at Private in CO A, 1st Alabama Calvary.He was born in Montgomery Co, NC in 1812; married Martha Frederick, daughter of Hezekiah and Ezilla Fredrick, Marion Co, AL at Corinth, MS, 2March, 1843.(Date correct?)
According to the 1870 Marion Co, AL census, Richard Wood says his mother was born in NC so here is another connection with the Green, possibly Joseph Green.If youhave any info Or anyone has any info about this I would really appreciate it.I am happy to share what I have on the Wood, Weatherly, Loden, Ford, Burleson, Peterson, Sims, Lovelady, Frederick. Besides the book listed above, I have the Cemetery Inscriptions of Marion Co, AL by DorothyShores Stalcup and her husband William Spann Stalcup, Vol 1, 11, 111.Be glad to do looks-ups for anyone. Nell Nicholson
