Hello friend - I left a comment on your Nathan Wood's Rev War service post, as well. I believe we are shirttail relatives via Nathan Wood. My 3x great-grandmother is Lura Wood Watkins, who I believe is this Nathan Wood's daughter. She was often called "Lury." I have seen a doc w/ her handwriting & Lura can easily be interpreted as Lena & Lury as Lucy. I am a dedicated researcher, as well, & hope to hear from you. I would love to compare notes. Thank you very much. Lynn Elizabeth Albers
