Hello Mike & Ruthie Crandall,
Greetings from Prescott, AZ! Nathaniel Hood b. Abt. 1742 is my 4th Great Grandfather. Several years ago,
I retired after about 30 years of service for the State of Arizona as a hydrologist. I work now part time as a
consulting hydrologist, and teacher of water resources at colleges in Prescott and elsewhere. Since retiring, I
have been able to pursue some genealogy research into our Hood lineage and find it exciting, fascinating and
challenging. I wanted to thank you both for your extraordinary detailed work on the Hood line you generously
shared online at your Website. You have been a terrific inspiration to me as I continue the research as time
I have grandchildren in Gilbert and my wife, Jean Stutz, is currently a professor at ASU nearing retirement.
So, I make it to Phoenix metro area every couple months, and would enjoy greatly meeting you in the future.
Also, I would appreciate very much opportunities to share genealogical information on our Hood relatives. I
thought I would begin by providing you with some very interesting information on Nathaniel Hood
(b. Abt. 1742). Attached you'll find a document I wrote concerning his service to our country as a militiaman
during the Revolutionary War (1775-1783). Also, I've included some information from the North Carolina
Archives that proves this fact. I am a member of the NSSAR and active in the Prescott Chapter currently
serving as Vice President & Historian.
I hope this email finds you both in good health and happy. Take care.
Best regards,Wayne Hood, III
