I've been working on ancestry.com and have hit a brick wall on my ancestry on my father's side. I can trace it to John Alva woods and can't seem to find any other information. The information I have gathered is that he may have been born in Pennsylvania, possibly in Franklin county in the year 1821. He married Elizabeth Ann Gates and had some children... and that's as far as it takes me. I've searched all over the internet and can't seem to find anything besides some theories as to why this is. Namely people think he was born out of wedlock, or maybe he took the name of his mother, father or step-father. the only other hint I have is ancestry.com lists "woods 1795" as his father, but that could just be from people guessing, possibly? Any help would be much appreciated!!

Would love to know if you find out anything here.  I hit the same wall a few years back.  I search every now and then but haven't seen anything new out on the internet about John Alva Woods.

I'm also descended on my father's side.  From John Alva:  Benjamin, Christopher, Richard (Woods)
