Biographical data
Name: Wood, John (2)  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
I am guessing that the 'John Hood' listed in the Chess Players' Quarterly Chronicle of Jun. 1871 (vol.2, p.284) as playing for Worcester is an error for 'John Wood', though the Oct. 1871 issue (vol.2, p.341) has a correspondence game by a 'J.H. Hood'.
