I am researching Hoods from Scotland before 1900. The earliest Hood I have information on is James Spears Hood b.1887 d.1831. The rest of the hoods are in Bradford, England. So if you or your Hood parents were born in Belfast or Bradford, we may be related.
I am also looking for
Pruett, Carson, Hurst, Trull, McMillen, Stanley.
In Ireland or England
