HOOD, Cash Roman (wife of J. W. Hood, related to Perkins) NS

(History from Thomas Perkins: "Caroline Lewis was living with her younger sister Martha Ann and her husband David A. Pittman in 1860 in Jackson Township, Crittenden County (Blackfish). She first married a Mr. Cook and then married John W. Roman. She had two daughters, Cash and Mary Roman. They lived in the Gibson Bayou area on Highway 149 north of Earle, just east of the junction with Highway 42. Caroline died before 1870. Cash married James Wesley “Bud” Hood, and they had four children: Febia, Kate, Charlie and Vernon. Cash died young, we believe on or before 1870. Cash, Bud and her son Charlie are buried in the Hood family cemetery just west of the junction of Highway 149 and Highway 42. Bud later married Esther Carter. Mary married George Washington Hays. They lived in the Tyronza area. Mary died young after being injured in a horse accident, breaking both legs and crippling herself. George W. later married Esther Carter Hood’s sister.")
