These are a few pictures from my collection of the Wood family of French Lake, New Brunswick.

Some of these people lived long and difficult lives. It is therefore not surprising that some of their photographs are also a little worn: 

 John Wood, 1788 – 1868

John Wood was the only surviving son of pioneers Daniel Wood and Annie Morgan and is therefore an ancestor of all French Lake Woods. The picture was printed on glass and is thought to be ca. 1860-68. There is also a picture of his sister Annie, below.

 Annie Wood, 1794 – 1889/91

This is believed to be a picture of Annie Wood, a daughter of pioneers Daniel Wood and Annie Morgan; and wife of John “King” DeWitt. The photograph is possibly from a portrait painting, ca. 1880.

 Dorothy Stennix Wood, 1830 – 1924

Dorothy was a daughter of the above John Wood and his first wife Dorothy Stennick (1790/94 – abt. 1830). She married Samuel Bunker. The photograph is possibly from a portrait painting, and is ca. 1885-95.

  Thomas Wood, 1821/22 – abt. 1893
