About Nipper Thomas L. Hood

Name: Nipper Hood; Birth1795, SC ; Death1864, Blount Co AL Age: 69

Burial: New Lebanon Cemetery, Blue Springs, Blount Co AL

  • Spouses: Sarah McKinney
  • Children: Elizabeth (1816-1868)

Note, however, that one FindAGrave memorial has wife as Sarah Hood (born Beeson). There are two Hood markers adjacent to a third: that third is clearly older; the other two are for Nipper Hood d.1864 and for Thomas N. Hood d.1869 -- both born c. 1795. I suspect the Sarah Beeson is currently 'attached' to the incorrect 1795 Hood at FindAGrave.

In 1838, Nipper Hood sold land to David Nation and John Hood. David Nation was the husband of Nipper Hood's daughter Elizabeth (married June 8, 1835 in Blount Co., Ala.). David and Elizabeth Nation eventually moved to Ellis Co., Texas.

Nipper Hood and his wife are buried in the Blue Springs Cemetery (now New Lebanon Cemetery) about 10 feet from Jonathan Nation, the brother of David Nation. Jonathan Nation (1815-1855) married Nipper Hood's daughter Juletta (1814-1888) in Blount Co. on December 17, 1835. She is buried in Hood's Cemetery in Blount Co.
