      Lucas Hood

      The marriage record of Lucas Hood has not been found; however, two of his children were baptised at Readington, N. J.; son Aaron 31 Oct. 1742 and son John (Jan) 3 Feb. 1745. Rynier van Sichelen and Mersere were witnesses to the second baptism, but none were recorded for the first. Both records gave the name of the wife as Johanna van Stockholm.

      Lucas Hood followed his brother John to Virginia and also settled in that part of Frederick Co. which became Berkeley, but at what time is not known. Evidently it was after his brother John died. The first record of him found in Frederick Co. is a note for two pounds and one shilling given to Thomas Swearingen, Executor of Thomas Swearingen, deceased, 7 Nov. 1760. The Index of Original Northern Neck Land Patents in Virginia State Land Office, Richmond, shows that Lucas Hood, Sr., of Frederick Co., Va., patented 133 acres on Sleepy Creek 26 Aug. 1765. Lucas Hood left a will in this county dated 13 Nov. 1770 and proved 7 May 1771, in which he named "Johannah my dearly beloved wife," sons Luke, John, Andrew and Thomas (youngest) and four daughters, Cattren Smith, Leora Francis (also called Lena), Margaret and Hannah. No son Aaron was mentioned. Wife Johannah was named "whole and sole executrix". John Grier, Christian Houser and Adam Christman were the witnesses, the first and last being the ones who proved will.

      No further records were found of son Thomas and the four daughters. Son Lucas was paying taxes on 133 acres in Berkeley Co. (probably the land patented in 1765) and son John on about 300 acres as late as 1801. The name of Andrew Hood was not found on the records of either Frederick or Berkeley county.

      (2) O'Dell, Cecil, Pioneers of Old Frederick County, Virginia, Marceline, MO: Walsworth Publishing Company, 1995, p. 59, 61-62:

      Lucas Hood Sr. (assignee of Thomas Swearingen in 1765 who was assignee of Lucas Hood Jr. in 1762) received a Fairfax grant for 133 acres on Sleepy Creek 26 August 1765. The Sleepy Creek land is located in present-day Morgan County on West Virginia Highway 9 about five miles east of Berkeley Springs.
