The descendents of Henry Wood have scattered far from the banks of the Namasket.  Some of us are genealogists and research into the past.  However, this page leaves that hard work to others, and it provides a modern-day contact list and some recent news of the cousins.

Family Reunion 2008

Thanks to cousin Anne for providing such a wonderful site for the first Wood family gathering in 19 years!

Cousin Jon suggested a photo sharing site, and we've set up a Flickr group for showing photos of the Decedents of Lorenzo Wood III.  Galen has emailed family members information on how to post your own pictures there, but please email or phone him if you have any questions.

Also, please let Galen know of anything you want shared with the clan on this page.  And, please make sure your contact and family information is up to date.  (When you send Galen email, you will get a spam challenge message back, unless he already knows your email address. Please answer it, or your information won't get through.)

From Cousin Sue Gordon

September 9, 2008

Greetings! Cousin Jenny Few forwarded your post-reunion email and I enjoyed looking at the website and family genealogy. My branch of the Woods/Butler lineage is definitely missing, so I thought I'd get in touch and introduce myself.

So, who am I? I am Susan Butler Gordon, daughter of Robert G. Butler III (d. 1992) (brother of Lucy Painter and Shirley Hutchings, of course) My email is [email protected] -- my husband is Keith Gordon. I live in outside Washington, DC in Darnestown, MD and work at American University as a career counselor. I have three fourth gen kids-- Jean Alden Gordon (19), Sean Butler Gordon (17), and Christopher Ian Gordon (12).

Who are my siblings? David Norwood Butler, who is married to Jennifer Kang Butler. He is father to Robert Gregory Butler (17) and Stephanie Mira Butler (19). They live in Basking Ridge NJ.

Karen Butler Coton, married to Joseph Coton, in Waterbury, CT. They are fostering and plan to adopt a little 2 1/2 year old fireball, Lezley.

Deborah Lynn Butler, unmarried, lives in Valrico, FL, with my mother Barabara June (Barker) Butler.

I would have LOVED to come to the reunion and make new family connections-- we weren't exposed much to the Wood side, obviously -- but the last week of August marks the first week of school both for my boys and at my job, so it was impossible to take off.

Anyway, I'm glad to "meet" you and learn more of family connections. If there are any future reunions, let me know!
