Holmes, Clayton Wood,_A genealogy of the lineal descendants of William Wood who settled in Concord, Mass. in 1638 : containing also revolutionary and other records_(Elmira, N.Y.: Clay W. Holmes, 1901)

After a quick look at some VR for Concord and some other sources I can't find anything more recent than this. Holmes could find no record of the birth of Michael or of his marriage to Mary. There is no indication of Mary's maiden name or the date of her death. Michael left no will.

The record of Michael's death states somewhat tautologically "Michael Wood husband to Mary his wife died 13 day of May 1674" which is not conclusive as to whether she were alive at that time and whether she were a first or second wife.

I am guessing that the name is given as Thompson because there is in the Concord records a Thomson Wood who is listed as a child of Michael and Mary in Holmes' book. I do not know if there is any evidence that he is their child, but I would guess someone decided that the name had been a surname and it was the mother's. I have no idea where the notion she was named Harlow came from.

What you are seeing appears to be cut and paste genealogy.
