(1996) Apparently the Tolleys lived in Randolph County before the Woods got there. According to [S087], “...the first saw-mill in Mingo was built by Edward Woods and John Smiley at the Laurel Thicket, on H. C. Tolley place, near Valley Head, in 1822.” It would be interesting to know how Powhattan Tolley met Sarah Wood, who is unlikely to have made the trips from Bath to Randolph County that her father did.

In 1850 the Edward Wood estate gave (for $1) Powhatan and Sarah Tolley a tract of land in Edward’s Wedge Lot [R913]. Area T1 in Fig. R361b approximates this tract.
