John Wood, son of Robert and Katherine Wood, was an early American colonial farmer who was born in Cecil County, Maryland, in 1713. He married in 1737 at Saint Stephen's Parish, Cecil County, Maryland, to Francis Flintham, the daughter of John Flintham. The family migrated to North Carolina with the purchase of a large tract of land in Orange County (now Alamance County) near the Quaker community of Cane Creek Monthly Meeting in 1756. His daughter Jane Wood was born in 1755 and joined the Quaker community with her husband Daniel Freeman Sr. John Wood is mentioned in Cane Creek MM records as the father of Jane Wood Freeman. It is unclear whether John Wood was a member of the Quaker church. However, John Wood appears on many early land transactions in Orange County, North Carolina.
Note there's a second John Wood of Cecil County whose records have sometimes been confused with this John Wood.
