Looking for some help or thoughts on the following.
1) Joseph Bedell Johnson deceased July 4, 1849 Adms. Abraham C. Wood, John Johnson, Israel
bond-David R. Ryerss, Walter Betts. (source File nbr 545 book 3 page 230 July 27, 1849
of Admistration of Richmond County).
2) In memory of Jane K. wife of J. B. Johnson who died Nov 4, 1846 ae. 40 y'rs, 4mo, 5
days (replacement stone)
as per Vosburgh's cemetery inscriptions.
3) In memory of Julia Dobbs daughter of Joseph B and Jane Johnson died May 24, 1832 ae 1
year and 5 months.
(source Vosburgh's cemetery inscriptions)
4) In the same source for cemetery inscriptions someone written next to Joseph Bedell
Johnson and Jane "Wood" Johnson
in pen ink?????
I have been wondering who this Abraham C Wood is listed in the will and also guardian
"Abraham C Wood." In Staten Island
and its people page 976 I found "Abram C Wood, born in New York, March 1, 1819, came
to Staten Island with his parents
in 1821 ..... He died April 30, 1884." Vital records for the town of Castleton Nbr
922 Abram Cole Wood age 66 (60??) born
New york, father Benjamin Wood, NY and Catherine Wood, Ny, died Broadway, WNB, burried
Searching the IGI I found Stephen Wood + Mary Dobbs, dau Caroline wood who married
Abraham Cole Wood son of benjamin Wood+Catherine Cole.Given some clues that Joseph B
Johnson and wife Jane name one child Julia Dobbs, Joseph B Johnson and wife Jane
name one child Stephen Wood Johnson (according to another decendent of the family who has
no knowledge that his
grandparents were from Staten Island until he read a post of grandfather obit that I had
posted on the Albany Co. board).
My questions. Anyone have more information on Stephen Wood/May Dobbs or Benjamin/Caroline
Wood. How does Jane "Wood"
fit into this family????
