WOOD reply to Derek Doran-Wood
February 1999
I'm looking for record of a William WOOD or his family in Marion County, from around 1860-1865. He was born ca1796 in Gloversville, NY. Later he was a Presbyterian circuit rider in Arkansas, with the last record of his being there as the birth of a son William Thomas WOOD in 1850. Family tradition is that he moved the family to Centralia, IL or thereabouts by the Civil War. At least 3 of his sons served in IL regiments during the War. He was said to have had 30(!) children by two wives, including my 2-gt. g'father Walter WOOD (b.1838). Other children of his who may have been in Marion Co.: George (b.1820), Harmon and Harrison (twins b.1822), David (1831), Warren (1836), Jasper (1841), Morgan (1843), John (1849), and aforementioned William Thomas WOOD.

I am trying to find a death certificate for my great-grandfather. He died in Iuka in 1890 and is buried in Millikan Cementary there. I have the obituary from Kinmundy byline.

January 1999
I mailed a letter to the Marion County Clerk office requesting a copy of my grand fathers death certificate. His name was Michael (Mike) Waligorski (wife's name was Martha) of DuBois who was injured in a coal mining accident at the DuBois mine. He was transported from DuBois to St. Mary's hospital in Centralia where he died on 9 Jan 1941. This information is from the Nashville paper. His death certificate is not in Washington County or Perry County. I was told the death certificate would be in the county he died. The answer I received for Marion County Clerk was no record. My address is 24722 Deer Ridge Lane, Athens, AL 35613.   If you know where I can find this document would be greatly appreciated.
