FORTUNE FIGHT
Mayfield Claimants to Wood
Estate Hear Widow
“Put on Airs.”
By the Associated Press.
NEW YORK. September IB—A girl
of humble birth, who pretended to
high social connections, acquired an
$800,000 fortune, and then as death
approached in a shabby hotel room,
turned back to honor her real an
cestors—
Thus yesterday did Surrogate James
A. Foley depict Ida Wood, whose
death in 1932 plunged more than a
thousand persons into a great court
battle over her vast estate.
New York first knew her as a so
ciety belle, the wife of the wealthy
publisher. Benjamin Wood.
She said her maiden name was
Mayfield—yes. she was directly con
nected with “the'' Mayfields.
In,later years, she reminisced with
unconcealed pride about dancing with
the Prince of Wales, who became King
Edward VII, and of entertaining
President Abraham Lincoln at her
home.
Death Changes Scene.
Then Benjamin Wood died, and Ida
Wood moved to the then fashionable
Herald Square Hotel. The years rolled
by and left behind the hotel and its
by then eccentric recluse resident, Ida
Wood.
They found her dead there In her
room one day—a room packed with
mementoes of a forgotten era and a
hoard of cash and bank books totaling
$877,000.
Four hundred and thirty connec
tions of the Mayfield family filed
claims.
But Ida Wood was not a Mayfield
—she only claimed the name to im
press people. Surrogate Foley said yes
terday in a long decision supple
menting his recent ruling disqualify
ing the 430 claimants.
There was no conclusive evidence, he
said, that Ida Wood was the daughter
of Thomas Henry Mayfield and Mary
Ann Crawford Mayfield "of Louisiana
or of Mississippi.”
Plain Ellen Walsh.
The evidence was, he said, that she
was just plain Ellen Walsh, born in
England in 1838, the daughter of
Thomas Walsh and Ann Crawford
Walsh, and that at the age of 19 she
changed her name to Mayfield.
She even "changed” her father's
name to Mayfield after he died, the
surrogate found.
"She was plainly actuated,” he said,
"by her desire to suppress her humble
origin and to assume an alleged social
standing in the period before and
after her marriage to Benjamin Wood.
"It is the jest of fortune that hav
ing attained wealth and prominence,
she abandoned her pretenses at the
age of 60 and retired to strict seclu
sion.
Cherished Parents’ Memories.
"By way of direct contrast, during
her last years in her talks and in her
writings, she cherished only the mem
ory of her real parents and her Walsh
and Crawford lineage."
The surrogate has reduced the field
of claimants to 131 persons, five of
whom claim closest kin&hip through
a previous marriage of Wood.
They are Mrs. Blanche W. Shields
and Mrs. Gertrude A. Wood of Red
Bank, N. J., assertedly grandchildren,
and Howard S. Wood of Jersey City,
N. J., Mrs. Mabel W. Russ of Harrison,
N. J., and Henry Wood of New York
City, assertedly great-grandchildren.
The claims of all 131 will be axam
ined at future hearings.
