Barbara, My name is Bobbie Word Mitchell. I am a descendant of John Word. I would be interested in the information you have. I have been doing the genealogy of the Word family off and on for a few years, but get busy and put it aside. My aunt who is also a Word has much information, and is in contact with several of the names I see on this site. I am looking forward to connecting with other Words and finding information I have not yet seen.
