Information is currently being sought for a non-fiction book about John Wood, Photographer.  John was a photographer of the mid to late 1800’s and established a photography studio at 208 Bowery, New York.  His work was varied and unique.  John photographed most of the great boxers of the era, the human oddities of P.T. Barnum, actors and actresses, and various famous personalities and athletes.  John’s wife may have been a well-known burlesque actress and theatre owner of the era, Mrs. John Wood.  Her New Olympic Theatre was next door to John’s photography studio and featured many types of entertainment.

Work is currently being done to publish a major genealogical reference book.  The book is Monument Inscriptions Prior to 1900 from Cemeteries in Clermont County, Ohio.  The information was first compiled in 1948 by the Beech Forest Chapter, Daughters of the Revolution, Williamsburg, Clermont County, Ohio.  With only a few known copies in existence, this project promises to make available an important reference material to researchers and genealogists.  As of October of 2008, 749 pages have been researched and typed.  Work continues on indexing and editing.  The book is slated to be published in the summer of 2010.

Another on-going project is a non-fiction story based on the 35 Civil War letters of Seaman John Albert Blake.  He served a one-year enlistment on the U.S.S. New Ironsides and survived the Confederate submarine torpedo attack off Charleston, South Carolina, on the night of October 5, 1863.  John was born in Danvers, Massachusetts, in 1843, and died in 1926.
