Samuel Woods, born Ireland (probably north) 1808.
Emigrated to USA/Canada 1820-1830s. Married "Margaret", possibly Scottish.
Trained a silk weaver. 1830s in York, Ontario, Canada.
Made their way to southwestern Ontario. They have 5 children: Mary, Charles, Robert, Thomas & Margaret.
1850 wife Margaret dies somewhere in Ontario.
1852 Samuel marries Mary Irwin. They have 2 children: Annie & Samuel Jr. 1860s census lists them in Ontario, 1870s U.S. census Samuel is in Minneapolis with Annie.
I have Samuel's Minnesota death certificate stating he is from Ireland, as do the census', although we have never found out exactly where, or how and with whom he emigrated. I am also looking for descendants from the first 4 children, they possible moved to the U.S.
