Notes

  • "Lucy Hood's parents were James Monroe Hood & Mary Jane Conway. Lucywas the sister to my ancestor Almeda Texas Hood Meredith."
    --  Steven Meredith, email to Orville Boyd Jenkins, 4 October 2010

    I have not found definite confirmation of Lucy's middle name, butbelieve it is Judson, like her daughter, whom she naemd Lucy JudsonThomas.  One other genealogy has made this same surmise, while a fewhave her name as Lucy Jane, for which there is also no evidencepresented.

    Later that year, Lucy got married to Peter Thomas. who was born in thePrussian Empire.  Peter's family was one of the dozens of shiploads ofimmigrants invited to settle in the Hill Country of Texas.

    I first got this marriage information from Donna Thomas Modier, adescedant, then some time later was able to find the marriage record.

    This death certificate originally had the the date of death as "June25, 1918."  This is in the same handwriting and pen as most of thefields on the certificate.  However, there is what appears to be awriteover in the new hand and heavier pen of the attending physician'scertificate, making a 6 of the 5, to read June 26, 1918.  This is thedate on ther gravestone.  Family Search originally transcribed thedate as 26 June, but now says 28 June.  The Texas Death Index alsoreports her death as 26 June 1918.
