Hi Megan. Thanks for your message about your ancestor William A Woods, sometime Mayor of Sligo town Ireland mid 1800's. There was a man of this name who witnessed the marriage of my Great Grandfather John A. Beatty to Letitia Bent at St John's C of I in 1853. I have no knowledge of the 'Woods family' having any relationship with either Beatty/Bent or that they had ancestors attached to the Armagh Militia although musters of that Militia record a John and a William Beatty. I have only visited Sligo town once in 1993 and stayed at a B&B house owned by the 'Woods family' friends of the 'Jones family'. That is about my sum knowledge of the people living or lived there.
