"THE WOOD FAMILY
About a mile and a half north-east from the meeting house, is what is known as "the city." It consists of a few houses near the entrance of what is known as the Pudding street road. This road leads to the town of Upton, and is reported to have received its name from the fact, that on a certain occasion, all the inhabitants had pudding for dinner. Whether the tradition is correct or not, the name is as well defined and understood as Beacon street, or Pennsylvania avenue. The large house on the north side of the old Hartford and Boston turnpike, and easterly of the road above referred to, was built on the spot where there was once a tavern, probably one of the earliest in town, kept by Mr. Ezekiel Wood, the father of the wife of Captain Emory Wood, and grand father of Wheelock Wood and ______ Wood, who formerly resided upon the spot. The house was burned after it was given up as a hotel. Few facts are now known of this hotel, or its owner. It is said, that before insurance was common in this neighborhood, the barn of Mr. Ezekiel Wood, the former hotel-keeper, was burned. According to the custom of the time, a subscription was made; and among the subscribers was Captain Samuel Reed who subscribed ten dollars. When Captain Reed called to pay his subscription, Mr. Wood said thoughtlessly, hut not very complimentary to the giver, "I suppose I should not have had this, had it not been for Mr. John Capron." Captain Reed being a rather high-spirited man, suggested that if Mr. Capron was to have the credit of his subscription, he should hardly subscribe a second time. Yet how natural it is at times to ascribe an act to a wrong motive, and to fancy that a kindness has not come from the dictates of the heart of the one who does the kindness, but from some outside influence. The "city" was not the result of any particular business, but was a settlement of some members of old families, who built their houses in the vicinity of the old homestead.

From Mr. Elias Wheelock, who was brought up in the eastern part of the town, and married a daughter of Mr. Samuel Wood, I learned that Dexter Wood, -the father of Samuel and Uncle Ezekiel Wood, as we used to call him, and Ezekiel Wood who kept the hotel at the "city," were brothers. Dexter lived on the Pudding street road, in the house now occupied by James S. Farnum and formerly occupied by Samuel Wood and Amariah A. Wood. David Wood, with whom Mr. Wheelock was brought up, lived in the house formerly owned by Luke Taft, and more recently by Amariah A. Wood. David Wood was a brother of Solomon Wood, who formerly lived in Mendon, and was the father of the late Obadiah Wood of Milford ; was also the father of the late Nathan Wood of Milford, familiarly known, as "Uncle Nathan." Mrs. Luke Taft and Mrs. Reuben Wood were daughters of David Wood. Josiah Wood formerly lived on the place now occupied by Luke S. Farnum. lie was the father of Sumner Wood, Captain

Emory Wood, Mrs. Daniel Carpenter, Mrs. Cummings, the mother of Josiah Cummings, and others. Dexter Wood and Ezekiel Wood were brothers-in-law to Col. Ezra Wood of Upton, the father of Airs. Col. Fletcher of Northbridge, and Mrs. Frederic Taft of Uxbridge. Mr. Wheelock is unable to give the name of the father of Josiah Wood, but my opinion is, he was a brother of Col. Ezra Wood above named. From Mr. Wheelock, I learn further, that Josiah Wood was a Universalist ; that he had frequently heard him announce at the old meeting-house in Uxbridge, that a Universalist meeting would be held at-and time and place were mentioned. He also informed me, that David Wood, Solomon Wood and Obadiah Wood, the above named brothers, lived in different towns and that each resided at the end of the road that led to his house. It must be quite a convenience to know that a traveller is coming to see you. This can generally be accomplished by living at the end of the road. The lame house, on the old turnpike west of the Pudding street road, was formerly owned by a family by the name of Rist. One of the sons was a bachelor ; one was Thaddeus Rist, the father of Judge Rist, who died in Alabama; and Esbon C. Rist, who died in Uxbridge. The red house, formerly owned by Dea. Bullard, was built by Hatter Ezekiel Wood, so called, who formerly lived a short distance beyond the Daniel Farnum place. "Hatter" Ezekiel was the son of Ezekiel Wood and a half-brother of the wife of Capt. Emory Wood.

Reuben Wood was not a native of Uxbridge, but came from the State of Vermont. The relationship between his children and the Luke Taft family came by way of their mother.
