They had the following children:
i. Guy N.. Born on 26 Sep 1908 in Vardman, Mississippi.



Guy spent much of his childhood working around a saw mill and some on a. farm near Holladay. He has always been attracted by debates and was an ardent literary debater in school. He finished High School in Holladay and spent two years in Freed-Hardeman College. On his 16th birthday, Guy preached his first sermon. As a gospel preacher, Bro. Woods has done an outstanding work. He has done local work in Memphis, Tennessee, Tompkinsville, Kentucky, Post, Kirkland, Wellington, and Lubbock, Texas. He was ever in demand for evangelistic meeting work. For the past several years he has given his full time to this type of work, holding about 25 meetings each year. This work has been in Tenn., Kentucky, Mich., Wisconsin, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, California, Colorado, Mississippi and Alabama. His forceful manner, explicity, statements, and kind voice together with his thorough knowledge of the scriptures has crowned his efforts to lead the lost to Christ with much success. He is a staff Writer for the Gospel Advocate and his articles are widely read and highly respected. He also writes Bible School literature. He is a member of the Texas and Tennessee bars, but has never engaged in the actual practice of law. Guy N. Woods is an outstanding debater. He is recognized in general by the churches of Christ as sound in the faith and able to uphold the truth. He has engaged in about fifty debates with Baptists, Methodists, Holiness, Adventists, Christadelphians, and Materialists. Some of the Baptists that he has met are: D. N. Jackson (twice), H. F. Pepper (five times), A. U. Nunnery (twice), L. J. Crawford (twice), M. L. Welch (three times). Also, it may be of interest to note that he has met L. J. Crosswell, able materialist debator, six times. Bro. Woods has been successful as a debater for several reasons. One is his thoroughness. He never allows an argument of his opponent to go unnoticed. He makes his arguments in a forceful, intelligent, yet very simple manner. He does not become excited, nor does he allow his temper to show itself. He confines his remarks to the Issues and not to personalities, as can be plainly seen from reading this debate.
