About Ezra Holden Wood

Ezra Holden Wood was born in Westminster, Massachusetts on May 1, 1814. He was the son of Nathan Wood and Lucy Holden, and was named for his maternal grandfather, Ezra Holden of Westminster. His family moved to Saratoga County, New York when he was a young boy. He grew to manhood in Moreau, New York, and married Catherine Gamel at Argyle, New York, on April 22, 1841. They lived for a time in Memor, New York, where their first child, Theodore Gamel, was born. They then moved to New York City, where two more children, Charles Holden & Emma Jane, were born.

Sometime between 1847 & 1849 they moved to a farm in Fountain Prairie Township, Columbia County, Wisconsin. Five more children were born to the couple while they lived there. Those children were George Henry, Orry Elizabeth, Ellen Ann, Mary Angeline & Alfred Amminus.
