Note 3

Page 33, Captain Samuel Woods of King’s Mountain by Bates: In a book written by LeGrand M. Jones, published in 1894, called “Family Reminiscences” I find on page 43 the following: “Samuel Woods father came from Ireland to North Carolina. Judge Gideon B Black, now of Trenton, Tenn., a grandson of (Capt.) Samuel Woods, to whom I am indebted for the facts relating to Samuel Woods and his children, is not certain whether Samuel was born before or after his father left Ireland. I have not been able to learn the name of Samuel Woods father, or the date of his immigration to this country.”

Rev.Hervey Woods, son of John Woods and a grandson of Capt. Samuel Woods, kept a “Journal” during his life time. Here is an excerpt from that Journal: “My grandfather, Samuel Woods, came from Ireland when he was eight years old. My grandmother Woods was originally Margaret Holmes, descended from that adventurous Holmes that made first settlement in Georgia under Gen. Oglethorpe. My father, John Woods, and my mother (originally Charity Dysart) were born in North Carolina, and reared in Kentucky principally. My father was born in North Carolina in 1774. When he was 6 or 8 years old his father moved to Kentucky and at a time when the Indians were troublesome. He settled at Paint Lick in what is now Garrard County. My father’s oldest brother was killed by the Indians. My father was married in 1799. In the autumn of 1801 he moved from Kentucky to Wilson County, Tennessee, on Smith’s Fork. In autumn 1827 he moved to Bedford County, Tenn to a place on East Fork of Rock Creek, one mile north of the Big Spring, now Farmington.”
