WOOD, WOODS posted by Ray Turner on Sunday, June 1, 1997

WOOD, Dr. Virgil A. and wife, Sarah C."Sallie" WOOD. It is thought he moved back to Texas in his old age to be with one of his children, and died and was buried in Texas, possibly Bowie County, but not sure about the county. Virgil being born, Aug 12, 1849, and wife Sallie born Nov 3,1855, possibly a time slot for their deaths would be around 1915 to 1940, 1940 making Virgil 91 years old and Sallie, 85, a little on the high side! I would appreciate any information from anyone who has Texas death records. They could possibly be erroneously listed as WOODS in some records, one of his brothers, O.M. WOOD, is listed in furneral home records at Hope, AR., as O.M, WOODS, his wife, who was still living at time of his his death, as Mrs. O.M. WOOD! All known inflormation on Virgil ans Sallie is as follows: Virgil A. Wood was born 12 August 1849 in Cass County, GA. When he was a few months old, his family moved to Texas for a couple of years and then moved on to Hempstead Co., Arkansas. On 4 October 1874, Virgil married Sarah C. "Sallie" Robins, daughter of Samuel H. Robins and Sarah Turner. Sallie was born 3 November 1855; she and Virgil both were members of the Methodist Protestant Church. Virgil A. Wood was featured in the Hempstead County chapter of an Arkansas textbook Virgil was noted as having been a resident of Wallaceburg, Hempstead County for about 34 years. He was considered to be upright, conscientious, and "well worthy the confidence and trust reposed in him." His birthplace as given as Bartow Co., GA, which was previously Cass County. Virgil was raised on his father's farm in Hempstead County, remaining there until he was 21 years old. He taught for several years, began studying medicine in 1883 at the Louisville Medical College, and in 1884, graduated from the Kentucky School of Medicine. Immediately after his graduation, he opened his practice in Nevada County, AR, but remained there only 2 years before returning to Wallaceburg and building up a lucrative practice. In 1889, he began merchandising in connection with his practice. Virgil and Sallie had eight children, two of whom had already died when the textbook was written. They had one son, Robert H. Wood, and five daughters - Beulah L., Minnie O., Edna E., and twins Okla and Homa. Beulah L. WOOD was born in Hempstead Co., AR circa 1877. Minnie O. WOOD was born in Hempstead Co., AR in January 1880. Edna E. WOOD Robert H. WOOD Okla WOOD, twin to Homa. Homa WOOD, twin to Okla.
