Nothing further is known at this time about the Woods family.
This collection contains 37 documents and 14 tax receipts. Real estate holdings in Bulloch, Emmanuel, and part of Screven (which later became Bulloch) counties are traced through deeds, warranty deeds, surveyors' maps, mortgages and references to documents held at the county clerk's office. Landmarks include: the Ogeechee River, Lotts Creek, Poplar Springs Church and Bunks Branch.
Documents chiefly concern the Kirkland, Lanier, and Woods families. The Woods family papers focus on acres of land which through marriages and deaths remained in the Woods family, either proper or extended. The transactions of Benjamin Lanier and James Jackson Woods, Sr. are especially well documented. Also mentioned are members of the Barber, Blitch, Caswell, Colson, Cox, Davis, George, Gill, Johnson, Johnston, Lockhart, and Ridgon families.
