Martin Wood1

b. 1823
Birth*1823Martin Wood was born about 1823 in Kentucky.2
Marriage Bond3 September 1845A marriage bond was issued to Martin Wood and Elisha Carver in Barren County, Kentucky, on 3 September 1845 obligating them for the marriage between Martin Wood and Emily Jane Carver, which was intended to be solemnized shortly. Elisha Carver was a 1st cousin of Emily Jane.3
Marriage*13 November 1845He married Emily Jane Carver, daughter of Elisha Carver and Tempy Bullington, on 13 November 1845 in Barren County, Kentucky.1,3
Court Action*10 February 1846Case# 1472 was filed on 10 February 1846 in the Circuit Court at Glasgow, Barren County, Kentucky, whereby Martin Wood and Emily Jane his wife, who had been married on 13 September 1845 by Henry Lee in Barren County, stated that Emily Jane was the daughter and one of the heirs of Elisha Carver, deceased, and that said Carver was possessed of a tract of land lying in Barren County on the waters of Peters Creek containing 280 acres, and that Carver at the time of his death had legal title to the land, and that he died intestate.

Elisha Carver left a widow, Louisa Carver, and the following children: Lucy Carver, since intermarried with James Carver, Elizabeth Carver, Marthy Ann Carver, James L. Carver, John Carver, Mary T. Carver, and Sarah F. Carver, who with Emily Jane (Carver) Wood, were his only children and legal representatives. The six last named, except Emily, being infants under 21 years of age.

Martin and Emily stated that the land was rapidly deteriorating in value, and would in a few years be seriously and irreparably damaged by exhausting the arable land, and cutting and destroying the timber.

They stated that the land could not be advantageously divided as the share of each of the heirs would be less than $100, and that it would be to the advantage of all to sell the land and divide the proceeds.

An amendment to the above bill stated that James Jameson, Sheriff of Barren County, was appointed by the Barron County court to administer the estate of Elisha Carver, deceased, and that H. P. Curd, Deputy Sheriff for Jameson, acted as Administrator. The Plaintiffs asked that Curd be made a Defendant to the suit, and made to state the amount of the estate that had come into his hands.

In another amendment dated 21 March 1846, the Complainants stated that they understood that Charlotte Carver or her children, Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, had some claim, or pretended claim, on the estate of Elisha Carver, deceased. For the purpose of contesting all things in this suit, they asked the court to make them and John G. Rogers, who had been appointed Guardian of Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, defendants to their suit and any other bills therein, and that they answer.

Charlotte Carver’s response was filed on 26 June 1846, stating that Elisha Carver’s estate was indebted to her children, Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, in the amount of $38 each, for a total of $76. Mr. Curd, representing Charlotte, explained the indebtedness. He stated that Charlotte was the Administratrix of her deceased husband, William Carver's, estate, and that Elisha Carver was her security. Elisha became uneasy, and by way of making him safe, she sold to him her dower interest in the tract of land on which her husband lived and died, for and in consideration of his assuming to pay to Susan (Carver) Woodcock, Joel Y. and Catherine Carver the sum of $38 each being the amount of their respective interests in the estate of William Carver, their father. Elisha Carver thereafter paid Susan Woodcock her $38, but never paid Joel Y. or Catherine their parts. Curd stated that Charlotte claimed nothing for herself out of the estate of Elisha Carver, just what he owed her children.

H. P. Curd's testimony was filed on 21 March 1845, in which he admitted that Elisha Carver departed his life intestate and that by an order of the court he, Curd, as deputy for James Jameson, Sheriff, was qualified to administer the estate, which he did. He sold the personal property, settled the debts, and had in his possession $59.55 belonging to the estate. He testified that Charlotte Carver or her children, Joel Y. and Catherine, were claiming a debt of said estate amounting to $76., which she was alleging was the amount of the balance of the price agreed to be paid by Elisha for the tract of land. Curd claimed to know nothing of his own knowledge of the justness of the claim, and stated that if the claim was justly due and owing that so much of said tract of land be ordered and decreed sold as would pay the balance of $76, first deducting the amount he had in his possession, and allowing him his reasonable costs in defending the suit, including an attorney’s fee.

Testimony by attorney John G. Rogers, representing James Carver and Lucy Carver his wife, was filed on 15 June 1846. They admitted that Emily Wood was a daughter of Elisha Carver, deceased, and that he died intestate, that the heirs and legal representatives listed in the suit were correct, and that Lucy was one of the heirs and a child of Elisha Carver, deceased.

They denied that it would be to their interest to have the said land sold and the proceeds divided. They thought it would be better, and desired, that the land should be divided between the heirs, and that their portions be allotted to them even if the rest were to be sold.

The testimony of John G. Rogers, then testifying on his own behalf, was filed on 24 June 1846. He stated he was the Guardian of Joel Y. and Catherine Carver, the children of Charlotte Carver, and essentially made the same statements to the court that Charlotte had made. That Charlotte Carver was the wife of William Carver, and that her children were Susan Woodcock, Joel Y., and Catherine Carver. In addition, he told of the arrangement between Charlotte and Elisha Carver regarding her selling Elisha her dower interest in the land, that Elisha had paid Susan, and doubtless would have paid Joel Y. and Catherine if he had lived. He said Elisha died a short time thereafter.

Four deeds were submitted to the court as evidence in the court case:

John and Elizabeth Carver his wife, deed dated August 1828, sold to Elisha Carver for $118, one tract of land containing 75 acres on Peters Creek, Barren County, Kentucky, it being part of the tract conveyed by Benjamin W. Clark and his wife unto John and William Carver.

Jesse Bewley and Mary his wife, deed dated 2 August 1831, sold to Elisha Carver for $100, one tract of land on Peters Creek in Barren County, Kentucky, being the tract of land whereon Carver then lived, and the appurtenances thereon.

Ann D. Shirley of the Borough of Norfolk, State of Virginia, by George M. Pryer, her attorney-in-fact, deed dated 17 August 1833, sold to Elisha Carver for $100, 200 acres of land situated on Peters Creek, Barren County, Kentucky, it being part of a 1,333 1/3-acre survey patented to the heirs of Robert Tompkins, deceased, by patent dated 1 March 1800.


Charlotte Carver, deed dated 20 November 1841, sold to Elisha Carver for $150, and relinquished all her right of dower, her interest in a certain tract of land on Peters Creek owned by her husband William Carver, to have and to hold during her life.

Alexander L. Devasher was deposed on 17 September 1846 and asked about the current condition of Elisha Carver’s land which was believed to be occupied at the time by James Carver, one of the defendants in the case. In response to questions, Devasher stated he lived about two miles from James Carver, who he thought lived on the land upon which Elisha Carver lived and died. He said there were two or three different surveys, but it was all the same tract, and he thought James Carver had lived on the land for about three years.

Devasher was asked if he knew of James Carver, the defendant, having cut a great deal of salable timber off the land and sold it, and if Devasher had or had not bought timber from James Carver which came off the land. His response was that Carver had cut a right smart amount, such as board timber, rail timber, etc., but didn’t know much about the property lines and didn’t know whether they came off Elisha Carver’s land or not. He didn’t know of any that had been sold, except what he had heard. He said he had bought some rails from him, but didn’t know whether they came off that land or not.

Asked whether James Carver owned any other land in that neighborhood off of which he could have gotten the board and rail timber etc. he had mentioned, Devasher said James Carver didn’t own any other land except his interest in Elisha Carver’s tract of land.

Asked whether he knew if that land had been much injured and was not worth near as much since James Carver first went upon it to live, Devasher responded that he knew the place had gone to rack, and was not in as good repair as when Elisha Carver died.

Asked whether he knew or did not know that the land was not so valuable now for timber as when James Carver went on it, Devasher stated that if all the timber that had been cut was on the land, it would not be so valuable, but he didn’t know if all the timber was from that land. He didn’t know where the property line was.

Asked if he knew or did not know that James Carver had taken down a house and hauled it to the woods and there permitted the logs to rot, Devasher said they hauled a house out, it was said for Tom Williams to live in, but he didn’t know who the head manager was or anything about it. The logs, he reconned, were lying there yet, and he didn’t know anything about them. He had not seen them since.

Asked if he had not recently contracted with James Carver for a parcel of rails which were either on the land or to be made from the land, Devasher said he and Carver had been talking about trading for some rails, which he reconned were on the land, but they had not traded yet.

Another neighbor, Benjamin Littrell, was also deposed on 17 September 1846. He was asked if he knew or did not know of James Carver, one of the defendants in the case, having cut a great deal of valuable timber off of the land on which he was then living and upon which Elisha Carver died. He responded that there had been a right smart cut there, but he didn’t know that he cut it all. He had heard it said that he cut it, but he never saw him at it. He didn’t know that there was a great deal of valuable timber. There was some board timber, and some for plank, and some for hogsheads, cut off.

Asked if he knew or did not know that the place was much less valuable now than when James Carver went upon it, Littrell responded that he would not give as much for it as it was right smartly out of repair.

Asked how much he would say, or if he knew, to what extent the place had been injured, he said he hardly knew but at a rough guess would suppose, taking everything into consideration, that it had been injured something like $100.

Asked if he would please state, if he knew, in what way James Carver had been living on the land. Had he paid rent for it or not? Littrell responded that he couldn’t tell. He understood that Carver was to pay rent the first year, but how they had managed since he didn’t know.

Asked if he had bought timber from James Carver, the defendant, which grew upon the land, or knew of him selling to any other person, Littrell said he had never bought any from him himself, but understood that he had sold some plank and hogshead timber, which was said to have come off the land.

Asked if he knew if Carver, the defendant, had ever paid any rent for the said land, he said no. I don’t know that he ever has.

Note: No legal resolution, judgment or disposition of the suit was found in the court's case documents, although several deeds have been found in the records of Barren County, Kentucky that indicate that some actions to benefit Elisha's minor children were ordered by the Circuit Court, and some other deeds were found regarding various sales of pieces of his property by his heirs.4,1
Land Records*2 January 1847 On 2 January 1847, for $50, Martin and Emily Jane Wood sold to their brother-in-law, James Carver, their interest in the tract or tracts of land on the waters of Peters Creek, Barren County, Kentucky, that had been owned by Emily Jane's father, Elisha Carver, at his death.

Stating also that the deceased John Bolton died without issue, John E. Howard requested that Jonas Hartwell, a selectman of West Bridgewater, be appointed Administrator of John Bolton's estate.1
(Judge) Administration4 October 1831The estate of John Bolton of West Bridgewater, who died intestate, was opened for probate on 4 October 1831 in East Bridgewater. Jonas Hartwell was appointed Administrator by Wilkes Wood Esq., Judge of the Probate of Wills, and for granting Letters of Administration, and Hartwell paid a Surety Bond of $200 with Benjamin B. Howard and Libbeus Packard as witnesses.2

It had been completed by appraisers Nathan Alger Jr., George W. Lathrop and Stillman Alger and sworn to by Administrator Jonas Hartwell. The initial inventory of the estate was valued at $239.89 and included personal and household items in addition to notes of loans, with interest, against three individuals: Willis Alger, Nathan Alger and John Willis owed the deceased $150.59, $29.75 and $25.32 respectively.2
(Judge) Final Accounting2 April 1833One year later, on 2 April 1833, a second and possibly final Inventory and Expenses of the estate of John Bolton, was submitted by Administrator Jonas Hartwell and filed with Probate Justice Wilkes Wood in East Bridgewater. New items totaling $162.14 had been added to the $239.89 value of the initial inventory making the total value of his estate $402.03 before expenses. $150.00 and $10.00 had been received from the estates of Nathan Alger and Abiezer Alger Esq. respectively, interest received totaled $2.00 and there was $.14 cash in hand. The Administrator requested and received allowance in the amount of $137.72 for the following estate expenses: $5.16 in funeral charges, $34.50 for the deceased's last sickness, $20.11 paid to Dr. Caleb Swan, $6.47 paid to Dr. Noah Whitman, $1.70 in expenses for appraising the estate, $12.28 lost in the sale of the personal estate, $1.00 paid to Charles Hayden, $15.00 for a pair of gravestones and $41.50 for settling the estate.
