I spent the last day or so reading about the Wood family, starting with Ira Wood my 3rd great grandfather and his descendants. When I started, all I knew was that his daughter Anna Belle married Valois Parker, the rest of the details about her siblings was a mystery. Now I have some more answers and a few more questions.
Ira Wood was born in New York, probably in Gainesville, Wyoming County, New York, in August 1834, to Isaac and Betsy Wood of Vermont. Census records indicate he had at least three siblings, Randell, Ann and Dyer Wood. His family moves to the town of Deerfield, Washara County, Wisconsin after 1850 and Ira is married to Louis Firman October 19, 1856. Louis/Louise/Lois Firman was born in New York state to Benjamin Wise Firman (Furman?) and Abigal Rawley (Rowley/Raleigh?).
