James Cowin, Maughold, Isle of Man

If you are willing to post my information and address I would appreciate it. I am not able to find my original letter from you but I assume you are researching "Cowin" at any rate I will send the descendants of my oldest Hogg's and Cowin's, as these will be continous. You can use what you will. I do not guarantee this is complete or accurate, but I would love to have someone prove me right or wrong.

I am sending a more complete picture of my ancestors in hopes it may reach a larger audience. I hope this is what you are looking for.

  Bertie Lee Jones (Roark)

Yes - I would like to see the other children of Mikaja Jefferson Jones. I have a GGrandfather Lewis (Louis) Jones that married and lived in the same general area [Coryell County, Texas - Editor]- had 4 known children: John Jones, Bertie Lee Jones, Vicie Jones, & Parl Jones.

Bertie Lee Jones born: Aug. 7, 1888 in Somervell County, TX (Tonk Nation outside Glen Rose, TX), died March, 4, 1972 in Harris Co., Houston, TX, buried in Bosque Co., Walnut Springs, TX, Oak Grove Cemetery. m. June 8, 1903 in Meridian, Bosque Co. TX. (June 6, 1903 Marriage Book H, pg. 2 Performed by W.H. Seale JP Precinct No.3 Bosque Co) Had 10 Children.+ Elijah Range Roark born: 1874 in Limestone Co.? TX Died 1933, in Bosque Co., Walnut Springs, TX, Oak Grove Cemetery. Son of John Andrew Roark and Elizabeth S. ??. Both also buried in same cemetery - same plot with Bertie & Elijah.

Bertie is the daughter of Louis S. (12-25-1850 to 9-22-1943) & Margaret A. Fowler (6-22-1848 to 12-25-1912) Jones married in 1898 in Al. - both buried in Oak Grove Cemetery in Walnut Springs, TX. - (Just up the hill from Bertie & Elijah) Louis S. and Margaret Fowler were born in Bount Co., Al. and so were her siblings. (Ellen Jones, John W. Jones b. 5-22-1878 in Haynesville, Al d. 2-15-1956 Hico TX, Pearl Jones Gaskill living in Venus, TX in 1956, & a possible sister Vicie) So sometime just before 1888, they moved to TX.

Lewis S. Jones age 27 Al Blount 1-8-15-20 (His tombstone is spelled Louis S.)
+Margarett age 28 AL (her tombstone is M.A.)
Ellen L. age 7 AL (b. abt 1872)
John W. age 2 AL (b. 5-22-1878 d. 2-15-1956)

(One other sister - possibly 2 - Pearl Jones Gaskill b. sometime between 1879 & 1886, and elusive sister Vicie - b. same time frame) 1890 Census would have helped!!

1900 Census Somervell Co. TX
Lewis Jones b. 12-1851 age 48 b. AL 98-138-7-41
+Margarette b. 6-1850 age 50 b. AL
Birttie b. 8/1887 age 12 b. TX (Was the youngest child)( b. 8-7-1888 d. 3-4-1972)

On Bertie's brother - John's funeral home information (1956), his wife is listed as Addie M. Jones of Hico, TX, his sister Pearl is listed as Pearl Gaskill from Venus, TX, his daughter is listed as Mrs. M.V. Coleman of Midland TX, his son is listed as Ralph D. Jones of Parsons, KS, and has 6 Grandchildren and 11 Great-Grandchildren. The Pallbearers were: Willard Leach, Johnnie Howerton, J.B. Woodard, Boyd McClure, Clarence Jackson, and Hershel Sherrard.

I am looking for the siblings of Bertie Lee Jones Roark and their descendants, I am also looking for the parents and siblings of Louis S. Jones and Margaret A. Fowler.

  Fulton - Hood Families, Coryell County, Texas

I noticed your posting on genforum.  I am researching a Fulton family that settled in Coryell in the 1870s and later removed to Lampasas Co., TX. One of the Fulton daughters, Mary Ann Bethenia "Mollie" (born 1848) married in Rainey Creek, Coryell Co., Texas in 1870 to Samuel W. Hood.  The couple had at least one child Mary born in 1872 and perhaps more children. 

I am searching for any clues that might help me identify Samuel W. Hood and find out what happened to this family.  Samuel Hood was recalled as being a wealthy farmer in Lampasas, but unlike the rest of the Fulton family and their relations, I can not find evidence that the Hoods stayed in Lampasas or were buried there.  Someone recalled a descendant that may have lived in El Paso, Texas. 

Does Samuel ring a bell?  It would make sense that Samuel would be a child of the William Henry Hood that you list.  Thanks for any help or clues you can offer.

Daniel Mahar    JDM@LANDELS.COM.

p.s. - I also have a website at  I do not have much Hood information on it, but I do have a lot of Fulton family history.  I hope to add Hood once I figure out a way to present allied families.

I am a descendant of N.Helen Hutcherson Clark daughter of Lewis and Sarah. Turner seemed to live with Helen Hutch in the 1870 so I assume they were siblings but would like to know more about the Hutchersons. Sure enjoyed what you put on the web site. So many generation and so far back, you must have done alot of good work to find out all that. Thanks for passing on the info via the net. Anxious to hear from you.

(John?) Sheers Berry - m. Esther Woodward 1750

I now have the wife info for my John Berry, and more about Doeskin Hill, in Framingham, MA, where his father Shears was born. If you want to refresh my memory or let me know what missing links I had, maybe we can make the info more complete. Thanks!

I'm looking for the Berrys in my line prior to Sheers Berry (familytreemaker vol. 7, 4697), who married Esther Woodward of Needham, MA on 6/15/1750.

Esther was born 4/1/1732 in Needham, Norfolk County, MA. Sheers and Esther had a John (who had brothers Ephraim and Woodard). John had their grandson Benjamin Berry ( 10/10/1804, born in VT - died 12/31/1890, in Richford, Tioga County, NY).

Benjamin was married three times :

1, on 1/2/1831, to my Pamela Holden (b 5/20/1811 Norridgwock, ME, died 7/12/1836, Richford, NY)

2, to Angeline Gross, on 8/25/1836, had Eli Berry (1/9/1839- d. 1929, Washington, DC), who was in the Civil War, and my mother met. (mom is 85), and

3, to "Aunt Peggy" = Margaret Rockefeller, widow of Billy Rockefeller (brother of John D. Rockefeller, who was born in Richford on the farm opposite Ben's), m. on 6/28/1883, no children. This Benjamin Berry was father of my great grandmother, Anna Sophronia Berry (10/12/1831-3/31/1898) and her younger sister Matilda, by Pamela Holden. (Anna married Henry Wilcox, had two sons Smith (Wilcox, Nebraska is named for his sodbuster's stake there) and John, (Smith and John have no living issue) then widowed, and married my great grandfather, Mason Solomon Wheaton, who was also widowed and a neighbor in Richford.

Ben Berry's father was John Berry, baptized 7/26/1772 in Rutland, MA-died 1842. John Berry's brothers Ephraim and Woodard stayed in VT and were Green Mt. boys- must have been older, as they were in the Revolutionary War. I don't have John Berry's wife's name. We previously though John's father's name was John Shears Berry, but since his mother was Esther Woodward and had the correct/exact marriage date that we had, are believing familytreemaker that his name was Sheers. Our John Berry went to NY state.

I saw several John Berry's in your listing of the Berrys of Maine. One was born 7 Apr. 1732, son of Capt. Joseph and Lydia Berry. (footnote *17*, per Noyes) He would have been the right age (18 yrs old in 1750) to have married Esther Woodward, and since we previously thought this ancestor's first name was John (Shears Berry), it looks plausible. My grandfather Henry Wheaton's unpublished memoirs have a paragraph about the Berry boys "trucking it" to VT from MA . I don't know what they were trucking/farm produce?

Any info you can provide will help.

Hutcherson - Obion County, TN

I was hoping to get your help in sorting out the list of Obion County, TN marriages below. Based on information that I've gotten from Al Hutchison and Vicki Vinyard, plus information that Carol and Bill Cook have posted on the Obion website and some Obion census info, I've been able to place some of these marriages within several Obion Hutchi(n)son family groupings (see below).

By 1850 I know of 3 Hutchi(n)son families, and possibly a 4th, living in Obion County. These are:

1. The children of William B. Hutchison (deceased by 1850) - this is Al Hutchison's line of Hutchisons. William B. was probably from Lancaster/York county, SC.

2. Samuel Hutchison and his children - this is Gaylon Fry's line of Hutchisons. Samuel was probably from Lancaster/York county, SC also and related to William B.

3. William and Isabella Hutchinson - we don't know how/if this family relates to the first two, but William was born in NC. Their daughter Mary "Polly", b. 1842 AL, married in 1866 James H. HANCOCK, Bill's ancestor.

4. (possible) Lewis Malone Hutchinson, d. 1849, who married Sarah Broom. Lewis' daughter Nancy Helen Hutchinson is Vickie's ancestor. We don't how this famly relates to the other 3, if at all. I don't know where Lewis M. Hutchinson was born.

I would very much appreciate if you could identify the marriages which are not grouped below that belong to your family. I'm trying to help Gaylon figure out who Samuel Hutchison's children were by process of elimination.

Also, Carol, your information about the Lewis M. Hutchinson's children comes from a book about the Malone family by Randolph Malone Wilmouth. I was wondering what Randolph's source of information about Lewis' children was?

Thank you for your help.

My Getchell-Berry-Harmon Machias Ancestors

I enjoyed reading your Berry-Getchell web site,

Betsey Getchell marries JAPHET, however, not Joseph Harmon. Japhet (1781-1859) was an East Machias shipbuilder, and had approximately 90 grandchildren. (Japhet is my 3rd great-grandfather.)

According to a Maine Society of the Sons of the American Revolution publication entitled "Maine in War . . . ", Portland, 1897:

"Joseph Getchell, Jr., [wife of Sally Berry Getchell] served on Captain Jeremiah O'Brien's sloop "Unity" at the capture of the British schooner "Margaretta," June 12, 1775; and at the capture of the "Diligence," and her armed cutter "Tatmagouch," July 14, 1775.

"Joseph Getchell, Sr., was one of the volunteer crew of the sloop "unity," commanded by Capt. Jeremiah O'Brien at the capture of the British armed schooner "Margartta,: June 12, 1775; also at the capture of the British schooner "Diligence," and her cutter "Tatmagouch," July 14, 1775. He was also a private of Artillery in Capt. John Preble's Co., 1777, and was a pensioner."

Keep in touch with your Getchell-Berry research.

My own line of Gable descent is from a 1740s immigrant to SC, but I enjoyed visiting your website and learning more about another Gabel/Gable line.

Dorcas Ann Hood (1825-abt 1890) who married JohnCulpepper


I found your website on the Hood family of Mississippi and was hoping that you could assist me. I am trying to establish the parentage of Dorcas Ann Hood who was born about 1825 in Mississippi. She was married August 15, 1842 in Lawrence County, Mississippi to John Abb Culpepper. John was born abt 1824 in Mississippi and died April 12, 1863 in Vicksburg in the Civil War. I don't have a map in front of me, so I can't really tell the geographical location of Chrystal Springs and Lawrence County, so there may or may not be any relation here. But nevertheless, I would appreciate any help you could offer :)

Nathaniel Hood, the Surveyor


My wife was Jody Hood, her father was born in Dodge Co. GA in 1889. He family came through Nathaniel the Surveyor (related to Daryl Hood etc.) I find it interesting that you have posted so much about the LDS Family History Centers as I worked as a volunteer in one for several years. I also found it interesting that you have Hatch and Dunlop family since they also come into our families but not in connection with the Hood and not in connection with the South. I'll review your data very closely with my families but don't think we are related except through the LDS Church, or at least the Family History Centers.

David Riley Hood - m. Margaret Ann Croney

Hi, my name is Ron Hood and I'm searching for Information on my families roots. While searching the internet genealogy sites I came across your name as having some "possible" information involving the HOOD surname.

I'm contacting you to see if possibly we can help each other on our search!

My family can be traced as follows:

DAVID RILEY HOOD b. ? d. ? married a MARGARET ANN CRONEY b. ? d. ? both listed their places of birth as being in Alabama. Their children are John Erwin HOOD and Jim HOOD

JOHN ERWIN HOOD b. 9-20-1871 in ?, Alabama, d. 12-22-1941, in Lee Co, AR. On December 24, 1904, in either Forrest City, Goodwin, or Marianna, AR. John Hood married an ADA LEATHERWOOD, b. 2-16-1890, in Searcy, Arkansas and d. 1-30-1977 in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Ada Hood's mother's maiden name is ? Hightower. Ada had a sister named Gracie. It is believed that they (Ada & Gracie) are from the Searcy, AR area.

John and Ada's children are:

Velma Melissa b. 1-22-1909
Wilmoth Elizabeth b. 6-18-1911
Cecil Erwin B. 10-09-1912
John Doris b. 4-11-1924
and Vivian b.? d.?

The information I've been able to obtain indicates that John and Ada Hood lived in the NW section of Mississippi and in the 1930's they lost all of their possessions (including family Bible, photographs, etc.) in a "major flood" in this area. They then migrated to western Tenn. and finally into eastern Ark. where they remained.

John Hood is believed to have a brother named JIM HOOD. Ada Hood along with her sisters were adopted but were able to remain in contact with one another.

Any information or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

William Hood & Sarah _____

I don't really have much, but at least there's a source:

Descendants of William Hood

Generation No. 1

1. WILLIAM1 HOOD was born About 1725. He married SARAH ??.

"The Hoods migrated to Gwinnett County, Georgia from the Waxhaw section of North Carolina and South Carolina, where the earliest known ancestor, William Hood, was granted 275 acres in 1744. Half of that land was deeded by William and Sarah Hood to their son, Allen Hood, who was in the American Revolution 1780-1781. When Allen Hood died in 1827, the land was divided among the following heirs: Eli, John, Hugh, James, Allen and Henry Hood, plus Ann and her husband James Greer, Bethia and her husband Andrew Gamble, Betty Stewart and Joseph Massey. Massey was the widower of Martha Hood, who died in 1826."

Gwinnett County Families 1818-1968. Edited by Alice Smythe McCabe, Atlanta. Cherokee Publishing Company. 1980.
