There were two families who were among the earliest settlers of Washington Twp, Clermont County OH: the Woods and the Mannings. Both families came from central Pennsylvania, although the Mannings were originally from New Jersey. They settled at the Wood/Manning Station in Washington Twp. There were many marriages between the two families: Jeriah Wood m. Mary Manning Martha Wood m. Joshua Manning Elizabeth Wood m. John Manning Jean (Jane) Wood m. Elisha Manning There were three additional MANNING brothers—who did not marry WOODS. There were two additional WOOD brothers who did not marry MANNINGS. John Wood m. Margaret Grimes David Wood m.
