Martin James Phillips was in the Army over in India we know very little about him or Selvanayagam except that they had a son (Albert). Martin and Albert are on the 1881 English census but without Selvanayagam.  By this time Martin had remarried (Bedelia) and had another son (James) and were living in Liverpool. Any help on filling in the missing pieces in our Anglo Indian family history would be greatly appreciated. Margaret Wright

My mother was born in Calcutta in 1920 to Marie C. Thurman HOOD (daughter of Catherine O'Connor-Byrne and Edgar Moore 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 Kalimpong 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  I appreciate any assistance.  Priscilla Dunklee TRASK, St. Louis, Missouri
