Researching, the Thomas, Allen & Woods, families Listed on the 1880 US. Census of Buckhorn Twp. Brown County, IL. Martin Thomas, married to Amanda Allen Thomas, born, Jan. 1861 in Ohio. Their children, Ellen, (married Frank Woods my great grandparents), other children listed, John, William, Asenath, and Moahie Thomas. We know my great grandmother, Amanda Ellen Thomas, married Frank Woods, he was a Methodist Minister in Pike Co., IL. and may have been a minister also in Brown Co. We can’t find any info on Frank Woods, when he and Ellen Thomas were married, or when he died. We believe he was quite a bit older than Amanda Ellen. I do know my grandmother, Ethel Victoria Woods, was born in Pike County, IL. abt. 1884. Frank & her had a family of abt. 4 children, oldest child, Ethel V. Woods, (married Oscar Miller) my grandparents, Any info on these families would be much appreciated. I am seeking info on the Thomas & Woods as well as Allen families. Amanda Ellen Thomas Woods, born, Jan. 1861 in Ohio. Would like info on where and when Frank Woods died.
