Northwood Happenings

Welcome to my web site!

The following pages have been created to provide a place for sharing info relating to the NORWOOD families of Nebraska, the Mid-Atlantic Colonies/States, and the Atlantic/Caribbean Islands. My hope in doing so, is that someone out there can point me in the direction of where I might find the clue I'm missing to connect my family to it's immigrant ancestor.

My great grandfather, John Norwood of Nebraska, is a son of Richard Norwood of New Jersey. I believe that Richard is somehow connected to Benjamin Norwood of New York City. Benjamin being a son of Andrew Norwood of Barbados who was a son of Richard Norwood of Bermuda. Unfortunately, many records in New Jersey seem to have been destroyed over the years and I haven't been able to find good evidence as to whom Richard’s parents and grandparents were in order to make or break that connection.

If you have any info on the Norwood families of these areas that you’d like to share, I hope you’ll drop me an e-mail. Additions and/or corrections are always welcome. I look forward to hearing from others who are researching these same lines.

Happy Researching!
