Gordie, I'm fairly certain this is our James Hood and the info you've provided is the most we have on him.
Can you tell me where I might find a marriage record for James, in the area or military record?
We have found no middle names for the Hood's in our family. James Hood's daughter, Susan Hood born around 1798? in VA married George Hedges in 1812, Union Co, Kentucky. In his will of 1829, Il, he has several women listed with the last name of Copeland, possibly married daughters and/or grandaughters, no sons are listed. Have found a marriage of John Copeland and Mary(Polly) Hood in 1806, Jefferson Co, TN.
