This couple has been suggested as progenitor for Woods' in Ireland, particularly County Meath. There is NO proof of this, especially since there were NO Woods in Meath until after 1690 from deeds and other records, except for a visit of an unknown John Woods in 1654, who witnessed a will of Rev. Bonning, The emigrant family to PA and VA, as proved by DNA and records descends from Woods who were in Antrim and Armagh, consistently associated with Hamilton's of Claneboy/Clanbrassil (out of Raploch, originally)since about 1630. So, I don't doubt from the exact years of birth and death that this couple existed, but I doubt it was in Ireland, and citations of actual contemporary primary source records would be helpful to researchers. Thank you for your attention. DNA tests of direct male descendants of Michael, compared with autosomal of descendants of Samuel and Elizabeth show the paternal line of Woods of MIchael, Samuel, ets. were intermarried with Garland, Fitzsimons/Fitzsimmons and another Woods line out of County Monaghan. There was a Woods-Woods marriage just before emgrants were born, of two lines that were not closely related. I'm looking for indirect connections, possibly through a maternal line in the Hamiltons to Woods in Lanarkshire, at present to explain why the Woods' were able to buy land from the Clabrassil heirs in the 1680's, and otherwise obtain favorable leases, as well as being able to purchase at least once before earlier. The plantation patentees usually only sold and delivered favorable leases to relatives, including in-laws and their closest relatives. As supporters of Protestant Claneboye, and not Catholic Abercorn there would not have been forfeitures in their area, for Cromwell's troopers to be awarded. Richard Woods/Wood, Axtell's marshall and quarter-master obtained lands in and near Dublin County and property in the city, and. His son, John had Garclony in the far western part of Meath and moved the family to Rossmidhe/Rossmead in WESTMeath, where the family remained (well-documented with primary source records).
