Note: David Milton Wood's death was due to injuries received during the Civil War when bushwhackers beat him unconscious and the bottoms of his feet burned, in an effort to make him reveal where his money was hidden. By the time this incident occurred he had spent all his money on support of the families of two of his sons and three daughters. His two eldest sons and three of his sons-in-law were with the Southern forces and their families were living with David and his wife.
+++ The youngest son who had married a Woods second cousin went to Missouri to his wife’s people and joined the Northern Army. One son, (Samuel Newton Woods) and one son in law (John R. Bowling) lost their lifes during the war.
David Woods was an invalid from the time of this mistreatment until his death a year or so later….Bates, Captain Samuel Woods…+++
