Bio: Information on him and some sons in History of Macoupin Co., Ill, pg 143
    Published by Brink, McDonough & Co. Philadelphia (1879) BUNKER HILL TOWNSHIP
"Jonathan L. Wood came in 1830. In the year 1830, also, Benjamin Davis and his sons, Jefferson, Isaac, Alfred and David Davis made a settlement in the north-west corner of the township. The Davis family was originally from North Carolina, but came to Illinois from Tennessee. James Woods, in 1831, settled the farm in section 30, now owned by his son, David Wood. He was born in Loudon County, Virginia. He had five sons, three of whom, Samuel, David B., and James E. Wood, are now living in the township. A Tennessean, named William McPike, settled in section 30, in 1831, and died there after a residence of a number of years."
