I have found Birth's and Christening's for all the
children except for Frances but
because of space I will not be showing them. All of the children's
birth places are shown
by their birth record to be in Albamarle Parish, Surry,
In FamilySearch & possibly other places Nathaniel Hood's

until I changed
it and added sources why her last name could not be
"Young". Yes Sarah is her name but
her last name could not be "Young" as
our Nathaniel Hood who was the son of Nathaniel
Hood and Sarah was born in 24 Apr
1742. Nathaniel Hood and Sarah "Young" were
married in 1768. That Nathaniel may have been close to
