HOOD Family Tree

The WebThis site

My mother was born in Calcutta in 1920 to Marie C. Thurman Hood and a Mr. Phillips (first name unknown).  Her mother had a second husband named Edgar Moore Hood.  My mother took Mr. Hood's name.  She has a half-sister Valentine Hood who lives in the U.S. and a half-brother named Edgar Thurman Hood who was adopted-out while he was still an infant.  Their mother Marie C. Thurman Hood died two weeks after giving birth to her son.  My mother and sister have no idea what happened to their brother.  The adoption was private and apparently there are no records.  My mother attend school near Darjeeling in Kalimgpong at the convent school of St. Joseph D'Cluny.  We would love to find someone who might have known her family or have some idea what happened to her brother.  We can be reached at dlcpdt@earthlink.com.  I appreciate any assistance.  Priscilla Dunklee Trask, St. Louis, Missouri
