* The Family of Roy Vernon Hood and Elna Marie Hughes Hood*

Updated July 11, 2011

Ancestors and Decendants of my father Roy Vernon Hood and my mother Elna Marie Hughes. My dad's father was Roy Edgar Hood
This family line traces back to the Tunis Hood line (he was my 5th grandpa back) His ancestors came from Holland. His wife, Elizabeth Harrison came from England. It has been stated in diffrent records that she is decended from King Edward II, but some have disputed this. My dad's mother was Jimmy Florence Henson, her father was James Oliver Henson D.O.B. 1/18/1876 his wife was Susie Francis Ellen Brannon D.O.B. 6/5/1894. Her parents: Charles A.Brannon D.O.B. 11/20/1866 and Matilda Amanda Parthenia Hyde,D.O.B. 5/30/1865.

Names I am researching on my mother's family tree are Hughes, Hyde, Phillips Barnett and Barton. I've got a great deal of links on these Hydes but don't know if there's a connection to my dad's grandmother Hyde.

John B Hughes & Nellie Phillips, New Orleans, LA 1830, Their son, Robert Mantel Hughes, (my mother's father). Her mother, Jessie Lavonia Hyde, was the daughter of William J. Hyde(D.O.B. 6/11/1825) and Harriet Elizabeth Barnett (m. 7/4/1882) If you have any info on these relatives, please contact me at my email address listed on this page.
