Content Description

The collection contains a handwritten copy of an apparent deathbed autobiography. The writer, Andy J. Wood, was a Jackson County pioneer who lived for 90 years, and apparently wrote down some of the major events of his life while he lay dying in 1906. Wood recalls his marriage, "setting up housekeeping," and raising a family in Jackson County.

Also included is a transcript of the manuscript and a letter from the donor to Dr. Williams regarding the circumstances of his finding the manuscript.
