Currently (January 2011) the child list of John Woods and Elizabeth woods lists two separate sons named "William". These are Person:William Woods (7), and Person:William Woods (75). It seems likely that these are indeed two different persons, but one is not the son of John and Elizabeth. Work is needed to sort out which one belongs with this family.
