      David H. Wood
      Sorry, I don't have much info about David Bromley Wood but Morgan County is the right area. My grandfather, David Harrison Wood, grandson of David Bromley Wood was born in Morgan County, Indiana. Since Laban was 55 (10 years too old to have been born in 1805) he could have had an older child (possibly David Bromley) who was already on his own and not listed in the household. If Laban had been married in 1822 he would have been married for 28 years in 1850 which makes an older child very possible. My Laban Wood was married to Sophia Ward.

      I ran across this info while surfing on http://ftp.rootsweb.com/pub/usgenweb/in/:
      MORGAN COUNTY INDIANA 1850 FEDERAL CENSUS
      MORTALITY SCHEDULE
      Copyright 1996 Morgan County Public Library

      The 1850 Federal Census Mortality Schedule for Morgan County
      lists those who died in the twelve month period prior to the
      enumeration of the census: 01 Jun 1849 - 31 May 1850.
      This was the first attempt by the U.S. Government to collect
      vital statistics on its citizens. Mortality schedules were taken in
      1850 through 1900, but the 1890 and 1900 schedules were destroyed.

      This list is a transcription of the "Index to the Indiana Mortality Schedules
      of Indiana 1850, 1860, 1870, 1880" compiled by the Genealogy Division
      of the Indiana State Library.
      Microfilms of the Indiana mortality schedules are available in the
      Genealogy Division of the Indiana State Library in Indianapolis.

      SURNAME - WOOD FIRST NAME - Sophiah AGE - 45 SEX - F MAR. - M BPLACE - NC MO BIRTH - Jul OCCUPATION - (blank) CAUSE OF DEATH - Liver Complaint DAYS ILL - C TOWNSHIP - Clay COLOR FREE/SLAVE - (blank)

      This seems to go along with the reason Sophia(h) was not listed when you researched the 1850 census records. I don't know what the DAYS ILL "C" means. Note she was born in NC and age 45 puts her birth about 1805.
