The following is a short history of the founding of Mina, a small settlement north of Covelo, which has begun to grow considerably in the past year. This was written by a pioneer resident of Mina:

In 1892, a young man by the name of Almar Noyes Reed from Maine, later known as Al Reed, came to Mina, 20 miles north of Covelo, took up 160 acres of government land and built a house, and with his wife thought to make a fortune.

After a season of hard work and disappointment, he returned to his former employment in the redwoods, establishing a home for his family and for himself, a haven of rest, through the rainy seasons.

Wages in the redwoods was seventy-five dollars per month at that time and one man was expected to do the work of two. It was "Johnny on the Spot" from the first rays of daylight till the last glow of twilight. But young and strong, he kept the gait.

In 1895, he bought an additional 160 acres; in 1902, forty acres more. In 1906 the redwoods were losing their charm. He had worked the best years of his life among them, sustaining a broken leg twice in the work amongst nature, and was ready to retire to his ranch.

In 1907 he built a school house and the following year, with the assistance of neighbors, built a Community Hall. In 1915 he built a beautiful house with all modern improvements, building a second house in 1916, and a third the next year for his sons. In 1920 he built a store and post office and was appointed postmaster.

These, with three dwelling houses, Community Hall and school house, post office and store, comprise the little village of Mina, California.

80359 With the exception of six years when his parents lived in East Haddam, Enoch Noyes spent his entire life in Old Lyme, engaged in farming. His early school days were passed in Lyme, and later he attended the famous Bacon Academy in Colchester. In 1820 he built the home now occupied by his son Charles R., the timbers of the house and barn having been blown down in the September gale of 1815. He was an old line Whig, and later a Republican, but was not an office-seeker. His only public position was that of constable, which he held for a time, during which he was obliged to punish an offender by whipping him at the post, under the old Connecticut law. Mr. Noyes and his wife were both members of the Congregational Church at Old Lyme, in whose cemetery they are buried. NOYES Enoch (I20140)

80372 Wood-Wiggin Genealogy says born in 1635. m. April 7, 1654 Ann Todd or Hunt. wife born in 1637, died Dec 29. 1714. Evidence is on side of Ann Todd .

According to the Wood-Wiggin Genealogy there is some doubt as to whether wife was Ann Todd or Ann Hunt. However, see Essex Inst. Hist. Coll., v ol 21, p. 100. Will of John Todd mentions "bro. Hunt." See this will and that of Mary Grant, supposed to be sister of wife of Thomas Wood.

Delorey says that Ann was neither a Todd nor Hunt.

Savage, V 4, p. 629: Thomas [Wood], Rowley 1655, by w Ann had John, b. 16 56; Thomas, 1658; Josiah, 1664; Samuel, 1666; Solomon, 1670; Ebenezer, 16 71; James, 1674; and four ds. of wh. one m. the third Joseph Jewitt, and next John Lunt.

Essex Institute Hist. Collections, Vol. 40, Essex County Estates, Administered in Suffolk County, Prior to 1701. Abstracts from the papers on file and recorded in Suffolk County Registry of Probate. p. 216:
THOMAS WOOD, of Rowley. Will dated July 21,1687, probated November 23, 16 87. Mentions his wife Ann, and children John, Josiah, Samuel, Thomas, Sol omon, Ebenezer, James, Mary Chute, Ann Plummer and Ruth Jewett. Names of various carpenter tools given. Certain land is given to one of the sons on condition that he pay £20, "thre pounds five shillings he is to pay in molosoes, at twelve pence a gallon unto Jethro Wheler when it is dewe to him and six pounds fifteene shillings he is to pay unto Mr. John Wainright of Ipswitch in good marchants pay sometime within one year after my decease." --Docket, No.1607

Essex Inst. Hist. Coll. Vol 24, p. 47, discussing John Todd's wife, Susannah: "She is mentioned as 'sister' in the will of Mary, wife of John Grant. Ann, wife of Thomas Wood, is also mentioned as 'sister.' They are both mentioned as being about 60 years old in 1697 (see affidavit on file with will of Mary Grant in Essex Probate)." See also E.I. H.C. vol. 21, p . 100, Mary's will dated 2 Feb. 1697-8, she died 16 Feb. 1697-8.

Vol. 24, p. 60: "He was about 40 years old 1675, and called John Todd "brother" (C.C., Vol. 23:27-8-9)."

The nine volumes of the Records and Files of the Quarterly Courts of Essex County, Massachusetts (UofC F72.E7E72) covering 1636-1686 have many mentions of Thomas Wood. Vol 2, p. 347, Mar 25, 1662: Obadiah Wood of Ipswich and Thomas Wood of Rowley were made free. There are several complaints against him for trespess and for cutting down trees without permission, these actions were "nonsuited" or found in favor of the defendent. His wife is mentioned once (Vol 3, p. 70), as a witness to an offense by an other woman of wearing a silk scarf (the action was discharged).

Vol. 5, p. 303. May 1674, in an action against John Watson for suspected theft: "Thomas Wood, aged forty-one years, deposed that 'sometime last summer I being at worke at merchant Wainwright's house there came John Watson of Rowly to by wine & Tobacco . . . '" This suggests that for a time Thomas was a clerk or other worker in a store.

In later years Thomas Wood was on Jury of Trials (Vol 6, Mar 1678, Vol . 8, Sept 1682, Vol 9, Sept 1683) and on Grand Juries (Vol 9, Sept 1684, Mar 1685, Sept 1685, Mar 1686). In regard to the last of these grand jury services, he is identified as Thomas Wood, Sr. (Vol 9, p. 613).

See The American Genealogist, v. 21, p. 123 (1944-5) for claims that Ann was daughter of William Hunt of Concord.
