Some researchers have placed this Margaret as the daughter of James Vance (1760-1836) and Bethiah Kincaid (1759-1833), but James Wood of Smith County, TN names Martha's eldest son James Wood Pendarvis [apparently named after his grandfather] as his grandson in his will written in 1823. Also, Margaret's husband William Pendarvis was named Co-Executor in the will of her apparent father, James Wood.

Margaret Wood's middle name may have been Vance, which may be a clue to the maiden name of her mother. In the will of Margaret's husband, William Pendarvis, he named his wife "Margaret Nance" [apparently transcribed poorly from "Vance"]. Needs additional research.
