During the few years since the birth of The Angora Chronicles on Facebook we have uncovered several facts that may otherwise never been unearthed.
One day while discussing a doctor that played a huge part in the lives of many of us from Marble Falls, I told of this doctor delivering me on August 22, 1952.
Dr. Alonzo Church Wood III delivered and cared for many citizens of Burnet County prior to his deciding to move on in the spring of 1968, determined by a letter I found in papers left behind by my Grandmother, Leona. It help us to determine that Dr. Wood was in Matble Falls for the better part of two decades. There is no doubt he left a mark on the area.
My Mother in Law, Maxine mentioned that her first child, Madeline was delivered by a Dr. Wood also. But that was in Rockport, Aransas County, Texas. Madeline, who is my wife was born on August 18, 1952.
One of our group members, Peggy Bishop commented that the Dr. Wood in Marble Falls had a brother that was a doctor in Rockport.
Sure enough with a little investigation we determined that my wife and I were delivered 200 miles and four days apart by doctors that were brothers.
I have yet to find an obituary for Dr. George L. Wood. (Still looking)
Dr. Alonzo C. Wood passed away in 1980.
This is information on the father of both of the Doctors Wood.
