Is 1890 a date of birth, marriage or death? There are death records in SC for "O Rollie" Wood and Ellen Wood Blume whose parents are Ellen Stenson/Stinson  and Robert Wood.  It appears that O Rollie is the husband of Bertha -  on one census he is O. Raleigh Wood but his birth is 1884?  There are several census listings for Robert Wood in Barnwell, birth abt 1842?
