    Searching for Parents of Parks B. Wood 1802-1876


      Hello everyone,


      I have been trying for years to break down the brick wall of my third-great-grandfather, Parks B. Wood.  He was born c. 1802 and died in 1876.  His death record states he was born in Albemarle County, VA, parents unknown.  I have not been able to locate a will for Parks in Botetourt County, VA, where he died. 


      I have gone through microfilm records of Albemarle County, VA property tax records and only found Parks listed there one year, 1827.  No other "Wood" folks were listed around the date he paid his taxes.  The following year, he married Elizabeth Firebaugh in November 1828 in Botetourt County, VA, and resided there until his death.  Census records in Botetourt County, VA have not yielded any clues as to possible family members. 


      I appreciate any and all suggestions and advice!!
