Notes for JOHN ALEXANDRA WOODS:
From The South Western Baptist Newspaper 30 Apr 1857: "Died on the 18th of March at the residence of his son-in-law, James Vance, in Bibb County, John A. Woods, age fifty-five years, twelve days. Brother Woods was born in Pendleton District, South Carolina; removed from there to Tennessee with his father when small and from thence to Bibb County, Alabama in 1817. In 1822 he was married to Mary Calfee by whom he had eight children. In 1832 he professed religion and though raised by Presbyterian parents he united with the Baptist church at Mt. Moriah, Bibb County... Some four or five years ago he removed to Mississippi; shortly after which time he became sorely afflicted and from which he never recovered. Last winter he returned to Bibb County in company with his wife with a view of spending the winter and perhaps the next summer in that region in the hope that it would prove beneficial to his health..."

Says on the Tombstone that he died in 1875..

Flu followed by pneumonia caused the death of Mr. Samuel R. Wood at his home in Dodson, December 29, 1932 and the death of his wife, Mrs. Wood, Monday, January 2, 1933. Their request upon learning that they were both seriously ill was that they be buried together.

The Rev. A. H. Cullen and the Rev. Alwin Stokes, of Winnfield, and the Rev. Hysell, of Hodge, had charge of the services. Thomas Ware rendered a beautiful solo. Interment was in the Winnfield
Cemetery.
