I am looking for the descendants of John Otho WOOD.  He had 11 children in Wayne Co., IL, surely there are numerous family members probably still in Wayne Co.  John Otho WOOD was b. 1839.  His parents were William Henry WOOD and Emily KING.  John Otho m. Winnie ASBERRRY whose father was Benjamin ASBERRRY who I think was from Perry Co., IL, formally from Clinton Co., KY.  The WOOD family came to IL about 1825 from Edmonson/Warren Co., KY.  The uncles of William Henry (his father was Henry WOOD) were Charles, Thomas, and Alfred WOOD.  Does any of this info.

Emily KING.  Their son was John Otho WOOD, b. 1839 near Fairfield.  Do these names sound familiar to anyone?
