Hi, James -- Sorry about the long delay.I have that information for you about David Hood and descendants.
David Farmer Hood (born about 1838 in TN) was married to Permelia Abercrombie, daughter of Clemeth of Saltville, KS.They had three children -- John Clemens (1877-1918), James Earl (b. 1879), and Lulu Sarah (1882-1977).
I don't know what happened to David Farmer, but would like to know.Permelia divorced him and participated with 7-year-old daughter Lulu (pronounced LU-lah) in the Oklahoma Land Rush.David joined the Union army and was captured rather quickly and spent the duration of the Civil War in Andersonville Prison.He was never the same, ill most of his life, and Permelia wasn't one, apparently, to be tied down with an invalid.It isn't clear to me, after the divorce, where the boys spent their time, because Lulu was the only one who went with Permelia on the OK Rush.They may have joined her in Oklahoma later, or only visited occasionally -- the family stories aren't clear on this.
BUT -- John Clemens was my grandfather on my mother's side, married Ida Gertrude Johnson and they had three daughters, including my mother.James Earl, called Earl, ended up in Montana with a successful hardware store, a wealthy man.Don't know if he married or had children -- we're searching.Lulu and her mother Permelia made another land rush to Utah and settled in Duschesne, where she is buried.Permelia never remarried, but Lulu eventually married Emil Munz of Swiss descent and had children.
I have pictures, and more, but suggest you email me directly firstname.lastname@example.org the full story if still interested.
