red mail Looking for long-lost Woods relatives
I've been researching my Dad's family history for his 70th birthday and have made enormous strides, tracing his paternal grandmother's family to Northern Ireland and Kilwinning. We are descended from John and Susanna Woods who were married in Co. Armagh in 1853, before moving to Kilwinning sometime between 1860 and 1864. My great grandmother, Elizabeth Woods, was their 9th child. I've been able to trace what happened to 6 of the other 8, but Mary Jane Woods (b. about 1858 in N. Ireland) and Thomas (b. about 1862, also in N. Ireland) are a mystery to me. I lose her after the 1871 census... and he, after he was a witness for his brother James, at his wedding in 1883 or 1884. I would love to find out what happened to Thomas and Mary Jane... and hear from the descendents of their siblings... William John, James, Annie, Maggie, Sarah Orr and Susanna. I know Susanna's family, like my own, is in the States... but I suspect the rest are still in Scotland... and would love to find my cousins! Thanks so much!
