Re: Waitman- SD, PA
I'm interested in your Jacob Waitman to hopefully help me over a brick wall with my Hood line. Robert Hood was born 1772 spent time in PA before moving to Ohio. Dying in, we believe, Scioto County OH. We know he lived there but haven't been able to find ANY confirmation of death. I refuse to believe the poor guy is still hanging around though!:)Anyway, the reason I'm interested in your Jacob is that Robert named one of his sons Jacob and another one Waitman. This is the ONLY Hood we can find named Waitman so it's definately not a family name. Could easily be coincidence but I'm hoping it's not. The name combined with the dates and places just may add up to something. Sooo, can you tell me please tell me where in Ohio your Jacob landed? Maybe any little tidbits that may help in my quest(like where in Washington County PA your Jacob was born)? Either raise my hopes or dash them! Thanks!
