Wood family
Hello, I'm looking for any information to link the Thayer's and Gilbert's to my Wood family.
My Great-great grandfather, Edward Leonard Wood's Obituary states that he served as a secretary for his uncle Giles Gilbert, and also linked to a Frank Wayland Higgins, who later became governor of New York. His uncle Giles Gilbert was in the lumbering business, and Edward later had a drug and jewelry store in Mecosta, MI. His first wife was Emma E Daniels, died after 2 years of marriage, assuming possibly died during childbirth, and second wife, Ella M Boughton, my great-great grandmother.
I see a Edwin Kleeber Wood mentioned in local Mecosta histories and wonder if there is a connnection. Edward L Wood's mother was a Mary Gilbert but no first name for his father.
He was born 4 June 1855 Michigan, died 21 Aug 1928 in Big Rapids, buried in Highland View Cemetery, Big Rapids, Michigan
