1810 U.S. Federal Census [see husband's listing]
1820 U.S. Federal Census [see husband's listing]
1830 U.S. Federal Census [see husband's listing]
Possible that she was in her son Amos' household in 1840.
1840 U.S. Federal Census Fayette County, (West) Virginia Amos Wood 1 male 5 & under 10 yo (Felix) 1 male 20 & under 30 yo (Amos) 2 females under 5 yo (Virginia and Matilda) 1 female 20 & under 30 yo (Susan) 1 female 40 & under 50 yo (poss. Mary Ann Wood) (check image)
Elijah and Amos were the administrators of William's estate. It would be easy to understand that Amos would take the responsibility of his widowed mother. He hadn't been married as long as Elijah and therefore did not have as many dependents.
Mary Ann was not enumerated in the 1850 census and therefore must have died during the 1840 decade. Although many have her date and place of death as abt. 1845 in Nicholas County I believe that she died in Fayette County at the place she lived all her married life.
