flag  Maria  WOOD

  (b. 9 June 1800, Massachusetts, USA   d. 4 April 1874Auburn, New York, USA )  
Age: 74
Summary: Maria WOOD was born 9 June 1800 in , Massachusetts, USA. Maria WOOD was the child of

She married  David SALISBURY 10 November 1819 .  The couple had (at least) 4 children. David SALISBURY  was born 17 January 1799 in Ballston Spa, New York, USA (Ballston) (Milton) .  He died 16 October 1892 in Auburn, New York, USA .  He was the son of Cummings (Benjamin) SALISBURY and Elizabeth MOSHER.

Maria WOOD died 4 April 1874 in Auburn, New York, USA.
Notes:
Hmmm… Is she the daughter of Daniel Wood of Venice, Cayuga, NY? According to his will of 13 June 1823, he had a daughter Lois Maria, a brother David, a son Edward. His wife had passed away before him. No name given.

Also, the will of Jonas Wood, Venice, Cayuga, NY dated 10 Feb 1829 states that Jonas has a grandson, Charles Wood and granddaughter, Mary Jane Wood (son and daughter of Daniel Wood, dec'd). Jonas also mentions daughters Eunice and Lois.

This is a long shot. NOTE: Could this Daniel Wood be the Wood who married Mary Salisbury, daughter of Thomas Salisbury and Rebecca Bushee.
NOTE: Lois Wood is mentioned as 17 years old in 1824. She petitions Joseph Pancost to be her guardian.
1824 Wood Daniel Cayuga P. 901
Edward Wood is also mentioned in 1824 at age 13. He petitions that his uncle, David Wood, be his guardian.

Another long shot: 1801 WOOD Mary, d. of Jabez and Nabby, b. June 10, 1801, Harvard, MA. Source: Massachusetts Vital Records to 1850. According to Ancestry World Tree, Jabez Wood married Nabby Moor (possible alias Abigail Stone). They had a daughter Abigail Wood b: 23 SEP 1810 in Harvard, Mass. Jabez appears to have died in Harvard in 1850. He is in Harvard in 1810, 1820, 1830, 1840 according to the US Census.

Other Wood children all born in Harvard to this couple: 1805 WOOD Lucy, d. of Jabez and Nabby, July 27, 1805 (July 29, 1805 dup.)

1807 WOOD Flavel, s. of Jabez and Nabby, Dec. 28, 1807.

1810 WOOD Nabby, d. of Jabez and Nabby, Aug. 23, 1810.

1812 WOOD Lydia, d. of Jabez and Nabby, Nov. 12, 1812.
1799 WOOD Benjamin, s. of Jabez and Nabby, Aug. 22, 1799.
1803 WOOD Emery, s. of Jabez and Nabby, June 28, 1803.
1815 WOOD Jonathan, s. of Jabez and Nabby, Oct. 2, 1815.
1818 WOOD Jabez, s. of Jabez and Nancy (Nabby dup.), June 10, 1818.
Possible marriage in Harvard 1799 STONE Abigail and Jabez Wood, Mar. 14, 1799.
NOTE: This probably not a match because the family never moves to NY. The family above is a more likely match.

UPDATE: Daniel Wood (above) is NOT the man who married Mary Salisbury - see below
Birth: 1764
Death: Jun. 25, 1838

His parents were Thomas Wood and Lucy Winslow. Daniel married Mary Salisbury in 1790 and they had nine children:
