     Jeriah Wood was born in 1760.4 He married Mary Manning, daughter of Nathan Manning and Jane unknown, circa 1785 at Mifflin, Pennsylvania, United States.4 Jeriah Wood died between 22 November 1805 and 13 September 1806 at Clermont, Ohio, United States.2
     He was a witness David Wood, Sr. was the youngest of four sons of John Wood, Sr., who died in Derry Township, Mifflin County, PA, shortly before March 8, 1799, and his wife (name unknown), who was living at that time and probably after the probate of her late husband's estate in 1803. Although David's birthplace in 1764 is unknown, his son Joseph Wood's obituary in the Clermont Sun of November 7, 1877 states that his father was "raised in Pennsylvania." This tallies with the record of the Order of Survey #5012 granted to John Wood on 31 May 1768 for 80 acres in Derry Township then in Cumberland County, PA, later Mifflin County, PA. Nothing is known of David's life until his Revolutionary War service in the 7th Virginia Regiment. After the War he appears to have settled for a time in Frederick County, where he met and married LOUISA SMITH/SCHMIDT on February 15, 1793.

David Wood, Sr., his wife Louisa, and at least two children, Elizabeth and Mary Wood, joined the Wood-Manning migratory group in Mason County, KY ca. 1795-6, where he is of record in the tax list of 1796 with 1 male aged over 21 years, 3 horses and 5 cows. The interrelated group consisted basically of the married sons and daughters of two Pennsylvania settlers of the middle 1700's, John Wood, Sr. of Beaver and Penn's Townships, Northumberland County and Derry Township in Cumberland County, later Mifflin County, Pennsylvania, and his friend and sometime neighbor, Nathan or Nathaniel Manning of Beaver and Penn's Townships, Northumberland County, Pennsylvania with wife Jane. Nathan Manning outlived his friend, John Wood, Sr. by nine years and lived to see his large family settled in Clermont County, OH, where he died August, 1808.

Among the group of settlers were John Wood, Jr and wife Margaret, Jeriah and Mary (Manning) Wood, John and Elizabeth (Wood) Manning, Joshua and Martha (Wood) Manning, and bachelor Nathan Manning, Jr.

John Wood, Jr had been the first known of the family to settle in Mason County, KY ca. 1792/3, where he was of record on tax lists from 1793-97. The John and Joshua Manning families of record in Mason County in the 1795-1797 tax lists had joined John Wood, Jr. in Mason County ca. 1794/5. The Jeriah Wood family appears on the Mason County tax lists of 1796 and 1797.

The Wood and Manning family group crossed the Ohio River and established a fortified "station" or stockaded settlement similar to those along the frontier in Kentucky in the Virginia Military District near Big Indian Creek on land actually owned by Thomas Buckner (Survey #1087) in the southern area of the Northwest Territory, later Clermont County, Ohio. There they built rough log cabins enclosed by a fortified stockade. The settlement called "Wood and Manning's Station" was near a free flowing spring still visible today west of Collier Road in Washington Township, a mile east of Calvary Methodist Church on Route 756.

In the early 1800's according to the research of Richard Scamyhorn and John Steinle (Stockades in the Wilderness) and noted genealogist, Patricia Donaldson, an expert on this area and its settlers, the Deputy Surveyor for the Virginia Military District, Nathaniel Massie, asserted the legal ownership of the Buckner Survey to remove the Woods and Mannings from what was actually a "squatter" settlement. Shortly thereafter, the various Wood and Manning families received title to other nearby lands to compensate them for improvements made on the Buckner tract. [Mifflin Co., PA will Bk.

     Jane Abrams was born on 5 September 1771 at Sherman's Valley, Perry, Pennsylvania, United States.2 She married William Buchanan, son of Alexander Buchanan and Margaret unknown, in 1789.2,3 Jane Abrams married Absalom Wood, son of John Wood and Margaret Grimes, on 8 November 1809 at Clermont, Ohio, United States.2 Jane Abrams died in 1854.2
     Jane Abrams was also known as Jean. She Some of the birth and deaths dates for Jane Abrams Wood do not add up. In the 1850 census her age was shown as 87. That would have placed her birth in 1763, OR her age should have been reported at 79. In the Family Group Sheets for Clermont County Phillys G. reports that "she died in 1854, aged eighty-four." That would have been 1770 and closer to her reported birth in 1771. Jane Abrams was also known as Abrahams.4 As of before 1792,her married name was Buchanan.2 She William Buchanan died in 1805. He was married in 1789 to Jane Abrams, and had a family of four children,--Enoch, James, Margaret, and Jane. Both the sons moved to Illinois before 1836.

The widow Buchanan maintained that relation six years, when she married Absalom Wood, being twelve years his senior. she died in 1854, aged eighty-four years, and for the last fifty years of her life had lived on the Joseph Barkley place.

The original Buchanan farm is now occupied by J.R. Brown, at the Calvary meeting-house.

The widow Buchanan was the possessor of more than ordinary courage,and well calculated to endure the hardships through which she passed as the first woman in Washington, if not, indeed, in the county. In 1801, in the company of her brother and others, she made a trip to her old home in Pennsylvania, going up the Ohio in a small boat, doing the cooking for the men as they landed, and completing the remainder of the journey from Pittsburgh on horseback.

By her marriage with Absalom Wood she had three children, -- Florella C., who married Joseph Barkley, and died on the homestead; John H., who married Mary Barkley, and yet resides in the townsip near Neville; and William H., who married a daughter of Dowry Utter, and died in Washington in the fall of 1879.3,5 Her married name was Wood.2 She appeared on the census of 12 November 1850 in the household of Joseph Barkley and Florella C Wood at Washington Township, Clermont, Ohio, United States.6
