I dont know if any of this will help you but doing this is giving me some clues maybe. I cant deed map because all the deeds were taken out of Burke county courthouse so I cant tell who is immediate neighbors but this is the first Hood (William Hood)I see listed on same census page with Conrad Hildebrand in 1820. William is not in Burke by 1830 or was he listed in 1810.
no Hoods on a census page with Conrad Hildebrand 1830
My Jacob Hood on the census 1840 with an older woman which could be his mother or his wife's mother. Who ever she was she is not living with Jacob in 1850. My Jacob is the only Hood living west of North Fork Burke 1840(Icard/Hildebrand Town.)
