About Michael Wood

His children, etc: -------------------- Data from Genealogy of the Lineal Descendants of William Wood by Clayton Wood Holmes, dated 1901, page 11

Michael Wood was born in England probably at Matlock in Derbyshire. No record of the date or of his marriage to his wife Mary. Neither can any record be found of the birth of any of his children except two. It is probable that Abigail was the oldest and Jacob the youngest. In just what order they should come is entirely a matter of conjecture. The three last are probably correct as any one could easily surmise. On the first settlement at Concord, Michael had a house and lot near the common. Later he settled upon the farm now occupied by Samuel Dennis where he died May 13 1674. His death must have been sudden as he left no will. There is no record of his wife's death. History says he was heavily interested in the iron works at Concord.
