Susan A. Wood was born June 24, 1817, at Kingsville, near Ashtabula, Ohio, to David Wood and Rebecca (King) Wood. Her father had been a Revolutionary War soldier, serving as a private then a corporal in Connecticut.  She was married to James H. Ostrander in 1834 near Kingsville, Ohio. After a few years they moved to northern Indiana and then soon after to Oquawka, Illinois. In 1853 they moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa and in 1855 to Audubon County, Iowa, where Mr. Ostrander died in 1881. She possessed a good memory and recalled facts concerning the Black Hawk War, "Log Cabin" campaign, early cars, and the widening of the Erie Canal. Her memory dwelt most vividly, however, upon the incidents of the Revolutionary War as told to her by her father. Mrs. Ostrander died May 23, 1914 and is buried in the West Liberty Cemetery north of Glenwood, Iowa in Mills County.
