I am in need of some help me with my brick wall. My ggggrandfather was William Wood born in the US about 1787. He went to Canada and the first census that I can find him in, 1851, has him living with his children and is widowed. Below is some info and any help would be appreciated. Thanking you in advance for your time and effort. Dennis Wood
