workhouse. He married ELIZABETH EVEREST 29 June 1817 in St. Michaels, Withyham,Sussex, England, daughter of JOHN EVEREST and HANNAH WARD. She was born Bet. 1796 - 18 August 1799 in Parish of Withyham or Willingham, Co. of Sussex, England, and died Bef. 1861.

Notes for SAMUEL WOOD:
Researcher John Oliphant found a Samuel Wood, age 82 who died in the Ditchling workhouse 12/21/1865. John believes this to be our Samuel as the age would be correct and no other death record was found.

The 1841 Ringmer census was the last census listing any of the Samuel Wood family. No records were found in Sussex in 1851. The 1861 census for Ringmer and Fontmell Magna
turned up no Samuel Wood family members.

An Alfred Wood, age 18, cordwainer and George Wood, age 11, scholar appear in Fletching parish, East Sussex in the 1851 census. A James Wood, age 15 is listed in Warbleton as an agricultural labourer. A second James, age 8,( more likely Samuel's son) was buried in Ringmer parish on October 29, 1844

The name " Wood " is derived from the Old English word; wudu, meaning wood. The name was given to those who worked with wood or lived near woods.

The name Wood was especially common in Yorkshire, Cheshire, Derbyshire, Notts, Staffordshire, Leicestershire, Kent and Sussex. The spelling of the name stabilized by the 15th century but the name has been around in one form or another for much longer. Records dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries mention "de la Wode", " del Woode", "at Wode", and " del Wood ". The roots of the name go back even much farther, though. Woden (Odin) was the main God of the ancient Britons who lived in England at the time of the Roman conquest prior to the birth of Christ. Woden lived in the heavens but was thought to manifest himself in trees, particularly old large oak trees. The ancient Britons
painted themselves in blue (wode), the sacred color of Woden and worshiped at the sacred oak trees in pagan rites of the Druid religion. This information comes from the
Wood Family History, published in 1973 by the American Genealogical Research Institute.

Per 1840 tithe award, Samuel and Elizabeth resided Delves Estate and garden # 417. This was a cir 1800 brick two-bed cottage called Chamberlaines, standing on its own in a field north of Ashton Green.

Per the 1861 census, Samuel was living in the Ditchling Workhouse and a widower so Elizabeth died prior to 1861.

Burial: Dover Burial Park, Dover, Tuscarawas Co., Ohio

Since the original spelling of this old family name was deGordon, undoubtedly the family came from France during the time of the Norman invasion in 1066. The name was derived from the Scottish word meaning a wedge shaped hill.

One of the most prominent members of this family was Richard deGordon who attained many distinctions during the reigns of King Malcolm the Fourth and King William the Lion.

One of the earliest settlers bearing the Gordon name was James Gordon who made his home in Kent County, Delaware where he died in 1740.

The beginning of the Gordon family can be traced to James Samuel Gordon born ca. 1753-1754 in Scotland. He came to America as an indentured servant for 6 months to Edmond
Milne in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on July 2, 1772. James fought in the Revolutionary War after which he obtained land in Bedford County, Pa. He married Ellenor Dunbar and
they raised five children: Elizabeth who married John Kenton; Mary Ann who never married and who inherited the farm for taking care of her parents in old age; James Jr.
who married Jane Bowen; George and Hannah who married Daniel Clark. All lived and died in Bedford County.

James Sr. died between July 21, 1818 and July 31, 1818. No death record has been found for his wife Ellenor but by using the census it appears she died between 1830 and 1840.

James Jr. married Jane Bowen on February 27, 1798. She was the daughter of Quaker parents, Jonathan Bowen and Ann Blackburn of Bedford County. James Jr. died in 1813
leaving Jane with five children to raise: Elizabeth who married John Smith; Martha who married John W. Hammer; a daughter who died before 1821; Jane who married twice.
The second marriage was to Thomas Griffith. She died in 1840; the last child being Jeremiah.

Our direct line continues with Jeremiah, who was born July 9, 1811. He married Jane Smith, daughter of Quaker parents Thomas Smith and Pheobe White, on March 31, 1836.
Jeremiah was a carpenter who fought in the Civil War and spent his entire life in Bedford County. Jeremiah died on September 13, 1881 and Jane died on November 15, 1895.
They are buried in the Brethren Cemetery, Fishertown, Pa. All told they raised ten children: Anneta born December 15, 1836 and died January 6, 1841; James S. born April
25, 1838. He married Anna Wertman on September 19, 1861 and he died December 25, 1881; Emily born September 25, 1840, married Chauncey Keller on November 30, 1862
and died on June 17, 1908; Naomi D. born November 15, 1842. She married Adam Beltz on August 26, 1860. She married a second time to Darwin P. Wright and she died May 10,
1931; Leah J. born August 29, 1844 and Married twice first to George W. Harbaugh and second to Joseph Harris; Oliver Robinet born March 1, 1846 and died October 2, 1870;
George W. born September 12, 1847 and died May 26, 1853; Lucetta M. born September 29, 1849, married Jeremiah L. Hoover. She died March 25, 1887; Agnes A. born July 4,
1851; Lorenzo Madden born October 30, 1853. He married Margaret Adams.

The line continues with James S. who must have fell in love with Anna Wertman at a very young age since she and her parents moved to Tuscarawas County, Ohio when she was
only 12 years old. James married Anna in Strasburg, Ohio on September 19, 1861. Because James' father, Jeremiah, was fighting in the Civil War when they were married
James and his bride returned to Bedford County to become head of the Gordon household. James and Anna had their first child on August 20, 1862, Elias Ellsworth Gordon.

James found himself drafted into the Civil War on October 16, 1862 ( Company 1, 171st Reg. of the Pennsylvania Militia. He was later discharged on August 8, 1863 having been promoted to 2nd Sergeant. After the war James brought his young family back to Tuscarawas County where they lived the remainder of their lives. James and his sons were all carpenters who helped build the city of Dover. James died on December 25, 1881 in Pennsylvania, having traveled there to take care of his deceased father's estate. Anna
died October 25, 1922 . James and Anna are buried in Bunker Hill Cemetery in Winfield, Tuscarawas County, Ohio.

Notes for Jeannette Lillian Stephens: Adeline, Jeannette's mother, went to a neighbor and requested a Doctor be summonsed as she was in labor. The neighbor telephoned a Doctor, who asked if Adeline was in "Hard Labor". The neighbor indicated "No" so the Doctor took his time getting to the house. In fact, the Doctor went rabbit hunting on his way out to the house. By the time he arrived Jeannette had already been delivered. Not only did the good Doctor fail to make the birth, he, according to Jeanette, he provided the Department of Health with the wrong name. The doctor gave the Health Department the name - Janet Lillian Stevens and listed her fathers name as Herman N. Stevens (note the spelling of his last name). So her birth certificate indicated one name and Jeannette has gone by another name all her life.

In 1932 Jeannette became the 54th reported case of Polio in Tuscarawas Co. Ohio, only the 10th in New Philadelphia.
