Obituary from The Boston Globe (Boston, Massachusetts), 15 March 1963:
Maud was born in Manchester, NH, while her parents were visiting relatives there. She was raised in Nova Scotia. She moved to Arlington, MA, with her husband Harry Wood.12
Harry Wood and Maud Hattie Lawrence were mentioned in an article that appeared in The Boston Globe (Boston, Massachusetts) on 19 June 1931:
Mrs Maude L. Wood, now of Somerville, was granted a decree nisi of divorce in Middlesex Probate Courl yesterday after she had testified that her husband struck her and abused her on a number of occasions when she protested against his treatment of animals on his Burlington farm.
Once when he was beating a horse, she said, he struck her with a broom handle when she protested. Harry Wood, the husband, did not contest his wife's action.5
