Well, here's what we've got on Thomas Wozencraft (This comes from research my very resourceful sister has come up with as well as family notes *Lavenders*)
According to the ships manifest for the Jamaica Packet, captained by Thomas Tripp, Wozencraft was brought to American shores in 1798. He was 32 years old. His naturalization is not recorded at Atlanta, Clarke Co, Savannah, or Athens Ga. neither is it recorded in Hamilton Co Ohio or the Great Lakes Regional office in Chicago. In 1812 he married Sarah Wright at the age of 46; she was 19. Some family members speculate that he had a family in Wales that he was unable to bring to America & so started another. We do not know that the middle initial B is for Beverly. He died at the age of 84, leaving a family of 9 children, 4 of which were girls. His wife was 56. We have the dates of birth from census records & the Wozencraft family history. Thomas B is listed in the 1830 Census taken by George W Meriweather page 299 as being between ages 60-70, a female between 30-40, 3 girls under age 5, a boy between 10-15 & a boy 15-20. He is listed in the 1840 Census for Clarke Co taken by Abel Fleming page 6 as being between 70-80, a female between 40-50, 1 girl between 5-10, 3 between 10-15, a boy under 5, 2 between 5-10 & 1 between 20-30. The population of Clarke Co that year was 10,522. He is listed in the 1850 Clarke Co census, Farmington District, taken 24 Oct on page 130, dwelling 29 at the age of 84, occupation farmer, value of real estate 3500.00 birth- place S Wales; Sarah 54 born in Ga, Mary 18 born Ga, Sarah J 17 born Ga, John 19 born Ga & a farmer, Martha 16 born Ga & Reese 15 born Ga. He is not listed in the 1820 census although it seems reasonable that he would be as he married Sarah Wright there in 1812. Our previous date of death of 24 Dec 1834 was based on the copy of the persons in that will, giving us the names of his children & wife. He would have been 68 at that time so that seems reasonable to make a will however further research has well supported a later death date of 1852 per the 1840 & 1850 census' & the will book.
