Notes

Note 1

J Eleazar Woods , page 58, The Benton County Pioneer vol 10 no 3, July 1965. When the majority of the fmily moved to Arkansas, Eleazar Woods remained in Tennessee and settled in Dyer County, Tenn, where he lived out his life. His first wife was a first cousin. The letters he wrote to the Woods family in Benton County, Ark, were kept by Samuel P. Woods (his brother) and they give us some important documentation on the early Woods family. Mr. Bryce woods has turned them over to this writer and they have been laminated to preserve them. They will be incorporated into the complete story on Capt. Samuel Woods and his descendants which, as soon as it is completed, will be be placed in the Tennessee State Library and Archives where other documentation on the early Woods family will be added also.
