Reconstruction of the Unknown Hood Line

Updated August 13, 2005

About Our Family Research

This project was initiated by the pull of origins, as my family line does not connect with the majority of the major Hood branches of the United States. Spurred on by the challenge of reconstructing the linage in the face of no documentation, what I discovered in the two years pursuing leads my family line, of my forefathers, is nearly non-existent. However, with aid from the Census and a willing researcher (my thanks to Suzie) as well as tracking down the last of the Winnsboro Hood children (namely, my Great Uncle Jack, still alive and kicking), some information was validated.

What has spawned from from what originally appeared to be a simple task has escalated into a mystery of one particular branch (now from Georgia, to Texas, and presently California) that continues to defy the odds and make the task of completing a chronological history of this particular family line.
