Hi again Judy,

Thanks for those titbits, I'll look into them.

I 'think' the Dr Hood at Marin County may have been another person, not our JW Hood(??)

John W Hood's second American 'wife', Effie, died in 1894, and according to the newspaper reports he was heartbroken.

He blamed the 'false' accusations against her (for mistreating a 12 year old girl in their care) for causing her death. His health was failing, and he was apparently heading east with the intention of travelling to Europe.

Effie was born in Indiana, and her mother died at Rochester in 1878, so we are assuming JW stopped there to visit remaining 'family', and passed away there.

JW Hood was definitely a black sheep, his younger brother was a Supreme Court judge back in Australia, who was knighted in 1920.
