I have some mentions in my Pearce-Jacobus notes that touch on the Wood family:
From Probate Order Book B, Court Records of Decatur Co., IN, 1822-1848 by Maurice Holmes:
The guardian of the minor heirs of John Wood (m. Sarah Jacobus, may have been second wife) deceased petitioned the court to sell his ward's (James Wood) real estate in Sec. 2T11R8 (160 acres).William W. Pearce, Peter Zeigler and William McCain were appointed to appraise it, which they did and filed in court their appraisal.Feb. 10, 1835. END
In Maurice Holmes' Probate Order Book B of Court Records of Decatur County, Indiana 1822-1848, he reports William W. Pearce, with John Brooks, was a security for William Brooks who was appointed guardian of James, Clarissa, David, Thomas and Charles Wood, p. 343, dated 10 Feb. 1835.
From my notes on Sarah Jacobus (daughter of pioneer Simon Jacobus) m. to John Wood in 1829, he dying 26 Sept. 1834:
Sarah signed a receipt in 1846 that she had been paid in full from the estate of Simon Jacobus (her father).Part of his deed indicated it was on the south line of Sarah Woods (which may mean the Owen property).She and her brother, James Jacobus, sold their land in 1846.Her's was the same land description as that given to her brother, John Jacobus, by his father, John having given up his land.According to Maxine Harris, Jacobus historian, Sarah may have remarried either in Decatur Co., IN or traveled to Fulton Co., IL, with brother John Jacobus who had also transferred title to his inheritance parcel from his father to Sarah.Sarah may have remarried, or expired in route to IL.No marriage record has been found for her in either place or further data found for her after 1853.
Her children reportedly were: Charles, b. ca. 1832 Elizabeth, b. ca. 1835, after father's dod.
However, from note above, it would seem there was a son, James Wood, as well.
If you have clarification on this family, please advise me at firstname.lastname@example.org.Thank you.
