Brice Woods
**records have been found
that could point to this fella
having been the Brice Woods
that fought in various places...
""And also in the War of 1812""
This could be a very Historical
Find for Chatham~Kent history.
Whether these stones were found
some years ago & not recorded,
this we do not know...but today we
find this of great interest to possibly
add to the celebrations of the
anniversary years of the War of 1812..

volunteer group has.
He has found many lost grave sites
