families whose home was in or near a forest. Thus the earliest American Atwoods
are not likely to be all closely related, and there seem to be at least half
a dozen different families. Our Stephen ... is first heard of in Plymouth in
1643, along with a John Atwood who was probably his brother but not the same
John Atwood who was later assistant governor and treasurer of Plymouth Colony.

in 1651." (Bonnie Hubbard)
